And we’ve made it to Christmas Day!!! How the Hell did that happen so quickly? Seriously though, with all of this staying at home crap since March, one would think this year would have crawled by? Time always seemed to flow when I had to commute most days, pay the bills, do the dishes, and repeat. I’ve been home since mid-March, and December came in like a limping, gasping, clawing gazelle, after having been chewed on and spit out for the rancid meat that COVID and Trump’s allies turned 2020 into.
What kind of fresh Hell is this?
So let’s stick with this musical lane for the next two hours shall we?
As you will see below the first hour contains a fistful of holiday music that is as off-kilter as yours truly. And isn’t that why you tune in in the fist place? The second hour is something else entirely. I really enjoyed the entire show, but the two hours are as different as Christmas is to Hanukkah. Take that for whatever you think it means.
If you live in the Bay Area of California, you really owe it to yourself to take a drive to either Christmas Tree Lane (Thompson Lane) in Alameda, or Chestnut Lights (Woodside Court) in South San Francisco. Regardless of your religious beliefs, the creativity that went into these houses is worth the trip. There are a number of other locations to go check out. Here’s the link for a bunch of them. Take a ride!
Go ho, ho, ho yourself, and I’ll see you all next Monday night to get you good and ready to say so long and fuck you to 2020.
If you haven’t tuned into my Live Bootleg Bonanza show, tune in Monday’s 6-8PM, before my regular Hell’s Kitchen show, to check out shows from my vast live vault (it’s really just TBs of live shows) of thousands of shows from hundreds of bands. Most are soundboard quality, of varying genres. I played two Frank Zappa shows last week to celebrate what would have been his 80th birthday.
