I know. This place IS dead.Do you think Batman will notice I replaced his bust?

I wanted to share a few Alfred Hitchcock Christmas Tips with you as the holidays approach. Hopefully they’ll cheer you up in this crazy time during the last shopping days.






Enjoy!

Christmas Songs you probably won’t hear on the radio – Part 2 – ‘The Ballad of Big Red’ by Pop Machine

December 9, 2010

Another song that hasn’t received the accolades it should – this ditty by Pop Machine entitled ‘Big Red’. I thought crossing the country CB genre with the holidays would be an interesting mix. Scott Mercer belts out the vocals better than C.W. McCall, and the theme of saving Christmas reverberates for all to enjoy, with Al, Scott and Dave providing the melodic symphony behind him.

Christmas Songs you probably won’t hear on the radio – Part 1 ‘Twangles, the Christmas Squid’ by Jason Morris

December 5, 2010

I’ve noticed a bunch of songs about the holidays my friends have accumulated over the years, and thought it might be the time to start sharing the wealth. So I’m going to try and blog a bunch of them until Christmas, in the hope you get a chuckle, snicker, or feel good about yourself in the holiday spirit.

If you also want to purchase the (where available) spreading the cheer to the original artist, which is a bonus.

How do you do that?

First up – Jason Morris with his Masters of Song Fu favorite ‘Twangles, The Christmas Squid’

It’s an upbeat ditty about a cephalopod that brings toys to kids where Santa can’t quite reach. The chorus keeps bouncing around in my brain, and makes me happy. Enjoy!

Letters to Walken

February 16, 2008

A plea to Christopher Walken on Christmas...     I came across this page a while back – love the concept. Brandon Bird – artist in residence at Cornell years ago, had as his annual project for students a concept that made me smile. ‘Letters to Walken’ The class made Christmas Letters to Christopher Walken as if made by children. They batched them up , and sent them off each year to him.       No explanation, just sent them on a whim.       For years.       Twisted.      But that made me laugh out loud.
