Merry everyone ya little so's an' so's,

Awright, so we're still nine days oughtta the big day, but EVERYBODY seems ta be gettin' into the act; I don' hafta worry about STEALIN' music right now, cause some bands're just GIVIN' it away inna spirit o' da holidays — it's enough ta make yer head spin an' give ya a holidaze I tell ya. An' it ain't jus' the small potatoes that's givin' their music away either — I didn' hafta steal it, but here you'll find some new R.E.M. from their forthcoming reckid that they jus' announced is comin' out in March of 2011, a tune from those lovely little girls in Care Bears On Fire, some brand spankin' new tune-age from Tristen, some new stuff from da Get-Up Kids (their lead singer's a tool, but they make good music), anna buncha new remixes of songs by The Streets, The Drums an' Lykke Li, anna buncha other stuff too! It's all enough to put some warmth inna cockles o' yer hearts. Maybe below the cockles too; maybe inna sub-cockle area, maybe inna liver, maybe inna kidneys, maybe even inna colon, I dunno – but who cares? Check this shit out junkie! Oh – before I forget, my good buddy Jimmy wrote dis poem an' he wanted me to share it wit'cha. I'm down wit' dat because it reminds me o' home!

T'was The Night Before Christmas (Brooklyn version)

'T'was the night before Christmas, Da whole house was mellow,
Not a creature was stirrin',I had a gun unda my pillow.
When up on da roof' I heard somethin' pound, I sprung to da window,
To scream, "YO! Keep it down!"
When what to my Wanderin' eyes should appear,
But dat hairy elf Vinny, and eight friggin' reindeer.
Wit' a bad hackin' cough, And da stencha burped beer,
I knew in a moment Yo, da Kringle wuz here!
Wit' a slap to dere snouts, And a yank on dere manes,
He cursed and he shouted, And he called dem by name.
"Yo Tony, Yo Frankie, Yo Sally, Yo Vito,
Ay Joey, Ay Paulie, Ay Pepe, Ay Guido!"
As I drew out my gun An' hid by da bed,
Down came his boot On da top a my head.
His eyes were all bloodshot, His b.o. wuz scary,
His breath wuz like sewage, He had a mole dat wuz hairy.
He spit in my eye, And he twisted my head,
He soon let me know I should consider myself dead.
Den pointin' a fat finga Right unda my nose,
He let out some gas, And up da chimney he rose!
He sprang to his sleigh screamin',
An' away dey all flew, 'Fore he troo dem a beatin'.
But I heard him exclaim, Or better yet grump,
"Merry Christmas to all, and Bite me, ya hump!"

Love yer neighbor, but definitely love,
yer ever-lovin' Don Loder.
