:: [Prev] Another reason I feel like skipping Christmas this year [Next]
Because it makes Bill O'Reilly's head explode.
Anyway, I channeled some of my anti-holiday spirit into making a nice mix CD for my pal, Erick. The song list highlights those festive emotions of despair, brutality, fear, blashpemy, substance abuse, greed, and bitterness. And it's surprisingly danceable! Behold:
Tiny Grief Song -- Sinead O'Connor
Jet Ski -- Bikini Kill
Broken Face -- Pixies
Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want -- The Smiths
I Want More -- Bangs
Hate & War -- The Clash
Going To Marrakesh -- The Extra Glenns
Christianity Is Stupid -- Negativland
I Give Up -- Quasi
Jerry Falwell Destroyed Earth -- Ben Kweller
Hate The Christian Right! -- Team Dresch
The Dead Only Quickly -- The Sixths
Excuse Me While I Drink Myself to Death -- Spent
I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry -- Johnny Cash
Hey Fuck You -- The Beastie Boys
No Children -- The Mountain Goats
Beat On The Brat -- The Ramones
Millie Pulled A Pistol On Santa -- De La Soul
A Cautionary Song -- The Decemberists
World Destruction -- Afrikaa Bambaata & John Lydon
Lithium -- Bruce Lash (Prozak for Lovers II)
Naked And High On Drugs -- Karl Hendricks Trio
Kiss Me, Son Of God -- They Might Be Giants
Just to show I'm not a total Scrooge, I can make you one if you want.

Not a request; a possible addition. Mojo Nixon's "Burn Down the Malls."

Will you hate me if I'm not all evil about Christmas? Although, I'm completely stressed out because I'm sewing 11 things and I haven't started sewing yet (they're cut out at least). This is why Kwanzaa's a good antidote to the season.

Hey, I don't begrudge anyone else the ability to enjoy the holidays. It's just not my thing, you know?
(Anna: Watch your mail slot for a package of bad cheer!)
