This is an intervention.

Jag really wants good Christmas music, she just doesn’t know where to look. Jack Johnson? Barenaked Ladies? For fuck’s sake, here. What is this, a pop music tool convention? Her one redeeming reference is Zooey Deschanel’s rendition of Baby, It’s Cold Outside, which has the added benefit of being a potentially awesome song that she actually sang – something I didn’t know. So, we’re learning here, and that’s good. And here’s what I have to contribute to the lesson: Barenaked Ladies and Jack Johnson are both crap. Seriously. Merry Christmas!

Amanda prodded me and got me to download Vince Guaraldi’s A Charlie Brown Christmas. Now that’s christmas music. Music that adds something inherently beautiful to the banality and creepiness of traditional christmas music without being a total tool singing crappy overproduced pop renditions of Christmas songs. That’s what I’m talkin’ about.

Merry fuckin christmas.
