By the time you read this I will be in Paris!  Yep, for reasons known only to her, my Aunt decided to take the entire family to Paris for Christmas and who were we to say no?  So about 10 of us are piling into a barge on the Seine for 10 days. That, and the fact that I don’t have to put up and take down decorations is the best it will get all year.

All the bad news can wait because IT’S FUCKING CHRISTMAS !!!  I am giving it my all this year because I know that I will have to white knuckle the rest of the winter hunkered down like a fucking hermit until the sun shines again. So, Christmas cheer we shall have.

I like the whole thing – Santa, reindeer, songs, gaily wrapped packages, cookies, lights in the neighborhood, all of it.  I have never gotten past the kid stuff of it.  I have been known to have Christmas tree and house lights up until March, when I finally realize that my Mom isn’t taking it all down for me. I have also been known to move the whole thing right to the garage intact except for glass ornaments. Those I manage to get into a box because stepping on little bitty bits of glass while I am still hibernating sucks.

This year, though will be bit of an adventure. I have never spent Christmas away and it has never really occurred to me to since Christmas plays out the same way each year and I enjoy it. I did have Thanksgiving dinner at the Armenian Ambassador’s house in 1995, which was very nice. That was work-related though and my plans changed.  The Christmas lights in Paris are supposed to be stunning.

So, the Merriest of Christmases and Happiest of Hannukahs (I think that’s over?) to all of you that check in for some music sharing and the occasional political scrum.  It will be 2018 before you hear from me again.

  1. Tidings of Comfort and Joy – Play happy and joyful songs.  Songs that make you feel good and, um, joyful.
  2. We Wish You a Merry Christmas – Play all your favorite Christmas songs.  I like them all, from Burl Ives to metal.  I will be able to access the songs on my tablet, just not post.
  3. 12 Days of Christmas- Not this year! No one’s getting shit, I’m saving my money for Paris fashions bread, wine, cheese and coffee. Play some Grinch-y humbug shit and odes to Ebenezer Scrooge.

Here is the Christmas Playlist:

Christmas Dedications:

This is pretty much the only Christmas song I don’t hate with an absolute passion. Corey Taylor – XM@$


It’s great to see that my oldest daughter and her friends are really into this song (I was about the same age as she is know when it came out).

My second favourite Christmas song for Thrill (just because 🙂 )

Thrill – Baby It’s Cold Outside See, that works. When the genders are reversed, it’s actually sexy and not at all date rapey. I like that. pfluffy, thank you for carrying so many DJ threads this year and making them shine with your astounding creativity and superb musical taste! I honor you now with one of my favorite Christmas tracks from a very unlikely artist. Little Drummer Boy by Bad Religion – Be safe in your travels. My second favourite Christmas song for Thrill (just because ) Yes! George Michael songs are always a hit with me. For you,… Read more »

Ah – tis the season, so I might as well get involved in the DJ thread for once:

This one’s for the whole RVS crew because I think it suits the vibe:

And this ones for any dirty immigrants out there who, like me, are far away from family this Christmas

JDPS, you are one of the coolest motherfuckers I have ever known and a brilliant artist. A high point of 2017, for me, was getting to meet you and take a tour of real L.A.. Only my favorite member of the Rat Pack is worthy of your swagger. A Marshmallow World by Dean Martin – ilovecress, I mean no disrespect to anyone else, but nobody makes me think and question my own views in discussion like you do, nor do they accomplish it with such wit and cleverness. I’m pleased to share this with you, from Mrs Thrill’s favorite… Read more »

Grendel, I’ve been saving this one for you for a while. It’s not a Christmas song, but it fills me with joy because I can’t decide for sure if it’s really awesome or utterly hilarious or a bit of both. That girl’s voice….
