This year marks the 50th anniversary of 2001: A Space Odyssey and Hallmark is making a special Christmas tree ornament to mark the occasion.  It's a miniature version of the film’s HAL 9000 computer, complete with its menacing, glowing, red eye and eerily calm voice that ended up killing most of the Discovery One crew, perfect for the holidays! The ornament will be available starting October 6 for $20, and in addition to the glowing eye, the miniature HAL 9000 also plays some of the more quotable moments from 2001. Hallmark hasn’t revealed exactly what those are just yet, but there’s a good chance that a creepy, drawn out rendition of “Daisy Bell” will probably join “Jingle Bells” and “Deck the Halls” as part of your Christmas playlist.
