All the Remonculars from Turkey Valley

Listen to my Thanksgiving show!Yowza! It's been a long time since I've posted. I guess I just don't have the time I had before. Alas.

Well, Turkey Day weekend has come to a close. I hope you heard my Thanksgiving show! If you didn't, what are you waiting for?! Go here and stream it! (Or click this.) For Thanksgiving Day, I was supposed to have turducken with a couple peeps, but the restaurant we went to ran out of it, so we had deep-fried turkey instead. It was good, but it wasn't the supernatural explosion of deliciousness that I expected. What can you do! Still, it was really good.

So now Thanksgiving is done with, and it's Christmastime. I have a few Christmas shows coming up, and I dare say they're pretty good. I have to admit that having a prerecorded radio show is a great excuse to start listening to Christmas music (which I love) really early, and since I've been working on Christmas shows for the past couple weeks, I've been soaking in the music. You know what song I really like? That Britney Spears one--I think it's called Santa, Can You Hear Me? It's not the dumb crap you expect from Britney Spears (although much of that dumb crap is really well-produced, making it addictive crap, kinda like Cheetos); I mean, yeah, it's not an Important Work of Art, but it's not as fluffy as, say, Jessica Simpson's xmas stuff as I understand it. And it's not a pile of manure like Christina Aguilera's whole xmas album, which definitely is one of the worst xmas albums ever made. You have to hear it, because I'm too tired to describe it right now (and if I don't put an entry up tonight, I probably won't for another month).

And speaking of Christmas, I'm pizzissed that I can't find a small pink Christmas tree for my desk @ work. The ones at Urban Outfitters are too big, and the nice small pink one at that tacky carpet store in Union Square is $50!!! $50!!!!!!!! HELL-to-the-naw! I wouldn't spend that kind of cash even if I could easily afford it. I tried spray-painting one of the green trees I have, but that looked like shit, so I threw it out. I would just use it green, but I kinda had my heart set on pink, blue or white with colored lights and pastel ornaments. I don't want to put up a boring green tree. Uck. One thing I think might look cool, but I'm not gonna do it (cux I've deduced that making stuff yourself always comes out too expen$ive and usually looks crappy), is if I could have the regular green tree, but one half is burnt. I think that would be pretty cool. Or one half is melted. I would like that. It would be a "slap in the face of bourgeois values." :P Gotta love that.

Dammit, I got nuthin to say. not a damned thing. I think I'm gonna work on my xmas cards or something. Speaking of xmas cards, here's a holiday image for you. Click on it and you can hear the Ed Shepp holiday, er, thingie (cux I don't know what to call it) that goes with it.

And that's my beep for now, gnooplets. If you haven't seen it, I've been mentioned again on fluxblog, so go peep! That's that.
