I mean, I dig Dee and the boys, but c'mon. We're not gonna take it is right.
Anyway, I was emailing with Ross from yesterday's 'First Date' and he tells me he's enjoying the 'Bullshit' feature (which really should be a weekly thing, right?) So, he shoots me this:
"I am actually a big fan of Aimee Mann's Christmas show she usually does at Birchmere around Christmas, and her Christmas album. She is my favorite singer/songwriter of all time, and I own all of her albums. But it's the fact that my dad not only owns EVERY Mannheim Steamroller cassette, but he'd dust them off and he would play it in the morning to wake everyone up, play it throughout the morning as we did gift exchanges & stockings, play it over family brunch, play it over dinner, and then turns it up as guests show up and we all got more and more drunk as the night would go on.
That's my only real problem with Christmas... it's almost to the point where drinking eggnog and hearing that shit had the same effect on me that sex, violence, and Beethoven's 9th had on Alex after treatment in a Clockwork Orange. So now I just aim to be slurry with a chance of blackout by the time I get my second plate of Belgium waffles.
Fortunately there is my Aimee Mann Christmas record: "One More Drifter In the Snow" the 24 hour "Christmas Story" marathon, and the fact that I watch "Die Hard" (best holiday film to date) at least twice within the 24 hours of Christmas... those usually keep my head just over drowning in typical holiday bullshit."
I said hey Ross, can I post that? He said fuck no.
"Slurry with a chance of blackout." Now, there's my new mantra.
