There's Only So Much Wine You Can Drink In This Life But It Will Never Be Enough to Save You From the Bottom of Your Glass

The first true snowfall of the year and I couldn’t be happier. Central Virginia doesn’t get nearly enough of the white stuff, and it was all the more beautiful that it came on a weekend, when I could sit in my office at the computer and watch the flakes out the window. Unfortunately, it will be gone too soon, but at least there were a few hours of that silent tranquility.

PC reports a wicked cold front moving into Chi-town. And that means he had to give up eating those fudgesicles. I believe he’s now working with kebob sticks.

Joy to the World – Clem Snide

Stripped down and bare.

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen – Hoax Funeral

This song inspires some great versions. This is the opposite of the Jigsaw Seen track from a few days back—full of reverb, whistling, and menace.

In the Bleak Mid-Winter – Sarah McLachlan

Looking at that white blanket out my window, this seemed a perfect fit. There’s no way that this song could sound anymore melancholy.

So Much Wine – The Handsome Family

The Handsome Family is gothic country at its very best. Whether or not this is a true Christmas song is debatable. However, what’s not up for argument is the awesomeness of this song.
