What was my go-to song last Christmas?

13 Jan

I’m a big fan of Mashups. You know, where you take the beat, baseline or other melodic components to a song and mix it together with different lyrics? So the one song last Christmas that kept me from being stabby and follow through with other homicidal tenancies was Counting Crow’s “Einstein on the Beach,” but instead of singing about the great fuzzy genius, I replaced his character with a more notable character for the season: Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer. It went something like this:

“Rudolph On The Beach” ( Sing Along: http://youtu.be/6wOFg4G-GK8 )

Rudolph’s always sincere, he’s a sensitive type

His intentions are clear, he wanna be well-liked

If everything is nothing, then are we anything?
Is it better to be better than to be anything?
And Rudolph’s nose is glowing uncontrolled
All his dreams are slowly sinking
The world begins to disappear
The worst things come from inside here
All the reindeer reappear
For a reindeer, on and off the roof
Who’ll never be together again
Rudolph’s up on the roof staring over the land
Cause everything he believes in is shattered
What you fear in the night in the day comes to call anyway-ay
We all get burned as:
One more sun comes sliding down the sky
One more shadow leans against the wall
The world begins to disappear
The worst things come from inside here
And the reindeer reappear
For a reindeer, on and off the roof
Who’ll never be together again
Rudolph’s waiting in the snow
On a field Canadian
For the cause of some deflated form of hit and run
One more sun comes sliding down the sky
One more shadow leans against the wall
The world begins to disappear
The worst things come from inside here
And the reindeer reappear
For a reindeer, flyin’ off the wall
Will never be together again
Rudolph’s sailing off the roof
Cranked his nose wide open
The world begins to reappear
The best things come from inside here
And all the reindeer reappear
For a reindeer, flying, flying
The world begins to reappear
The best things come from inside here
Even the reindeers gotta cheer
For a reindeer, flyin’ for the Claus
Will never be embarrassed again
No never be embarrassed again
No no never never never again, uh huh
What you fear in the night in the day comes to call anyway

Paper or plastic? What happened to the first amendment?!

Now *that* is a very enlightening perspective…

Political Fireball

Usefulness of plastic bags

Around my house there are always uses for plastic and paper bags picked up from the grocery store.  After their initial use, plastic are used for a myriad of things, and unless torn, they’ll be saved for trash bags, wet shoes, lunch bag liner in a backpack, doggie-bags and who knows what else.  One interesting thing I’ve found the last few years is that plastic bags are actually more reliable for carrying candy in parades than those “reusable” plastic or fabric bags (and I walk my share on election years).  Half the time the handles fall of those other “reusable” bags…but I digress.  I recycle plastic bags.  And a lot of people I know do recycle their plastic bags too.  Actually most people I know recycle them.  In my home they’re called “Walmart bags” because of the advertisement on the side.

But, the environmentalist legalists have…
