to me there are two types of Christmas songs
the ones not about Jesus and the ones about Jesus.
of the ones not about Jesus,
my favorite is “I Want” by Tenacious D and Sum 41
originally released in 2001 for a kroq christams album
but can more easily be found on the 2003 compilation “Christmas Calling”
which has forgettable tracks by Fiona Apple, Macy Gray, and Fuel, among others.
but this D tune – it’s just so funny – while cleverly commenting on the crass commercialism
and selfishness of this holy season.
wrapped in an iron maiden judas priest danger kitty case of metal love.
the homemade video by a fan of the song makes it even better.
i think thats nice.
i also think its nice when a young man decides to make flapjacks
while he delivers his disses to chris brown to the camera.
if only mtv decided to broadcast music videos, whoever this dude is,
who already has 8 million views on this tune thats only been up two weeks
would be a star.
fortunately mtv is busy showing us reruns of the situation.
except for a hat,
a picture of ted turner with his eyes closed
and two strings of christmas lights
many of whom are burnt
im eating a pretzel stick thats big as a cigar
my space heater just clicked off.
im thinking about going down to the store to buy a new camera
do i need a new camera? no.
cuz i wanna show you everything
that youre missing.
no body was home.
good thing Santa wasnt breaking and entering,
thats for sure.
