In November of 2006, The Rumor Mill recorded a charity Christmas album entitled "The Rumor Mill's Christmas on Clinton St." which is available exclusively on iTunes.

This dark and stormy Christmas concept album was produced and arranged by J. Ralph with Arthur Pingrey, and imagines what Christmas could feel like if soaring temperatures continue to melt the planet. With unique and unexpected song arrangements, it features performances by Angela McCluskey, Rain Phoenix, Rachelle Garniez, Megan Wyler, Leah Siegel, Nicole Renaud, Baptiste Ibar and other special guests.

To bring the "Frosty the Snowman" song to life, Sean Donnelly and Abbey Luck were hired to direct and animate The Rumor Mill's story, concept and vision into a stop motion animated short film. The result is a poignant interpretation of the classic tale, feat. Angela McCluskey. See link below to watch movie.

The goal of this project is to raise money for charity and increase awareness of global warming by informing people about ways they can make a difference.
