Snowy Nights and Christmas Lights

Back from a long weekend filled with football, swollen lymph nodes, and a futile search for a Nintendo Wii. Congrats to PC on his win, and to Penn State. Indeed, early Christmas gifts.

Jim Croce is one of my favorite singer/songwriters. I know there is a fairly vocal Cat Stevens cult (and I love that guy, no matter what his name is) and the same goes for Nick Drake. All too often, Jim Croce is often forgotten. Born in Philadelphia, he attended Villanova University. It was there that he first decided to pursue a career as a professional musician. He scored a few hits and was just about to really launch to fame with a terrific third album, I Got A Name, but was killed in a place crash. All of his music is worth listening to—this one is obviously on 77 Santas because of it’s Christmas connection. His personal motto: "If you dig it, do it. If you really dig it, do it twice."
