My Quiet Life My Quiet Life

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.
