» Sunday, December 28, 2008Music to Soothe...
Herein begins my second and last week off. James has Monday through Thursday off, so he is downstairs doing some modeling for a change. I just finished up with the Christmas things I DVR'd and am vacillating between "Holly" on the Sirius XM channels and the Dish Christmas channel. Holly is fine in November until Holiday Traditions starts on Black Friday, then I usually alternate between that and the Holiday Pops channel.
Sadly, Holiday Traditions ended Christmas Day and the Pops channel is back to everyday music. It's not just the newer music I don't like on Holly or the Christmas ChannelI like "Christmas Eve Sarajevo" and "Christmas Canon" and "I Believe in Father Christmas" and several other new compositions, and, alternately, my hair stands on end listening to older stuff like "Pretty Paper" and other bluesy Christmas thingsbut Holiday Traditions and the carols on the Pops channel are just more to my liking. Yet wonderful things like the Philadelphia Brass doing "Silent Night" and Bing Crosby's "I'll Be Home for Christmas" show up on what's left, too.
At least I haven't heard that unbelievably tripey "Christmas Shoes"!
I'm sitting here trying to figure out where the frippin' time went. Who put the wings on Chronos' feet this holiday season?
