Two things

1. They Might Be Giants are playing at Irving Plaza this weekend. It's in New York, but it's on a weekend, which makes it totally doable. And I like Irving Plaza. I saw Soul Coughing there. And yet, I've made no attempt to get tickets. How moderately depressing . . . but their shows have been just "okay" recently, and I don't feel like putting out the money and effort for a mediocre show, seeing songs I've seen before. When they come back to Philly, I'll see them. Or when they come out with a new album. Ha. Ha ha. Relatedly, my parents got me Dial-A-Song for Christmas, but I looked real quick and are there any new tracks on it? I wish I had gotten Rarities or whateverthefuck it's called, but I didn't make a list of cd's this year because I'm stupid.

2. I didn't get to watch Holiday Inn this year! I love forties/fifties Christmas stuff. That means Christmas to me. And my mom loves that shit, so I love it too. I bought Swingin' Christmas this year and I'm very glad I did, it's such fun. I highly recommend. Oh and I did ALL of my Christmas shopping online this year. A couple things from Homestar Runner, and all the rest from Amazon (hooray for the Apparel department making my life that much simpler!) and I went to Amazon from Jon's banner at ape-law every time! I hope that you are showered with rewards for all the hard work I did, Jon!

At around 3 AM, sometime last week, some Philly Public TV station was playing these complete holiday shows from the fifties, old commercials and all, and that was really, really cool. INCLUDING the horribly creepy marionette-based presentation of "Twas the Night Before Christmas."

Dial-A-Song's got the great "Boss of Me" (from Malcolm in the Middle), but other than that..... I ended up taking the one I got back and exchanging it. They Got Lost is a great b-side collection, but I think you can only get it on-line or at their concerts. If you don't have No!, Heather and I heartily recommend that - it's fun music and the Flash animation is a hoot.

Yeah, I have "Boss of Me" from . . . somewhere, internet, probably, or perhaps they were giving out the mp3 at one time? And yeah, They Got Lost, that's the one I meant. AGAIN frustrating because I already have half the damn songs, but most of the other half looked interesting. Perhaps I'll ask for it for my birthday.

And sheesh, yes I have No!, what kind of heathen for which do you take me? ;) I think it's fabulous as well. I was making a mix-cd for someone who didn't have No (but who promised me he would be purchasing it soon), and I wanted to give him a preview, and it was SO HARD just to pick out two or three favorites. It's excellent.

That's some fine awkwardly correct grammar.

The TMBG show in Madison a few months ago was totally killer! Although they did one song that was totally death metal...what exactly is that?

(no i don't have all their cds yet either)
