037 Christmas Mix 2006 (part 1)

Ho Ho Ho.

It’s well into December so we think it’s safe to break out the best of the holiday tunage. In fact, we are in such a festive mood that there will be even more seasonal sounds next week. Mince pie?

Kip, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Love that movie.

Excellent choices everyone! I loved the Eels, Wombats, and My Morning Jacket. Happy holidays to all!

Tim, I don’t know if I can sleep tonight after hearing THAT VOICE. Good lord, that was creepy! (But Eels is sublime!)

Can’t wait to hear all of this!

oh, this was good. zb freaked me out a little, as did the intro/outro. (ha!)

i think i’m most drawn to the low and the smashing pumpkins (go figure), but really, everything was wonderful. and what an, erm, lovely ending song!?

And, oh, FiL, Monty Python called. They want their bleedin’ voices back! 😉

Hello my little children (especially Nat and Marcy who loved my voice so much). I suppose you are wondering what has happened to Tim? Well, he wandered off to buy the Sufjan Christmas album and I quickly sat down in his seat and took over the podcast this week (Awawawhahahahah)! If you want me to let Tim back on the computer you will have to offer up a sacrifice. I like vigins most of all, but I will settle for a goat at short notice (Awawawhahahah).

Wow, i loved every track, super show !!
Have a merry Christmas everybody.

jo guys… this christmas mixture is AWESOME… I love it, thanks for taking the time to put it together !!
best regards,

Beelzebub & ZB, loved your intros! I enjoyed this very much.

Hey Andy, “Bingo”

Ya know, I’m not the biggest fan of christmas much at all, but this podcast was amazing. Yet again, another one where the intros are just as entertaining. Jeez FiL…I laughed so hard I sprayed coffee all over my computer monitor.

Ho ho ho! Finished up the ‘cast this weekend. A joyous Chrimbo noise made by one and all!

Kip, that is THE definitive version of Mele Kalikimaka! Brings back floods of childhood Xmas memories…

GD, I loved the Mydols track!

Er, Cindy, does that mean I owe you a new monitor??

And Beelzebub, I’m so glad that the spirit of Christmas touched even your cold, black heart. Oh, and just so you know, I’ve wrapped up a virgin goat for you under the tree…
