The Baby Jesus Wants to Rock (Rock!)

Thoughts upon hearing "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" on the radio this morning:

  • Damn it, I've been trying to avoid Christmas songs.
  • But this shower radio is so hard to tune, it's not really worth changing channels.
  • Oh well, it's Christmas day and I've done a pretty good job so far, I guess there's not much I can do.
  • Hey, this is actually rocking out pretty hard.
  • You know, I never noticed how much this song sounds like "We're Not Gonna Take It."
Thoughts upon getting out of the shower, looking up the two songs to compare them, and discovering that I had been listening to this:
  • . . .
  • Twisted Sister got back together to record a Christmas album?
  • . . .
  • . . .
  • Awesome.
  • Good to see Dee Snider still looks exactly like Sarah Jessica Parker.
  • With a little more make-up, he'd be a dead-ringer for Moulin Rouge-era Christina Aguilera.
  • Hey J.J. French, I'm not sure grinding up on the guy's wife is really in the Christmas spirit.
  • Although he seems to be taking it pretty well.
  • Yeah, let him play the drums, it'll make him feel better.
  • Oh good, a happy ending. You see, chubby newlywed guy, it is a wonderful life.
Now all we need is for Eddie Van Halen and David Lee Roth to put aside their differences (again) and crank out a 2-disc Hanukkah box set in time for next year.

totally not about this post, but yay for it being you in ivy. way less odd than one of those older people who just lives in ivy and makes me sad.

j-term is still three weeks away! that must be a really long trip home. is it australia? i've always wanted to go to australia.

ok, about this post. i am totally getting this for my dad next xmas. he loves his jimmy buffet christmas album, and always insists on making me listen to it. maybe this will add some variety to the irreverant fun-spirited christmas tunes.

Um, hi. Contrary to your belief, Christmas day was not on Tuesday, December 26th. I realize you're Jewish and all, but there's a reason you're not in class today (separation of church and state, as well as historical accuracy, be damned).

Are you back in C'ville? One of my friends, a particularly fantastic one, gave me Munchkin: Impossible for Christmas. You know *that* spells excitement.
