  12:10am amEdeo:

Happy Happy Krumbus! Yules of plenty to one and all.
  12:11am Scott Briggs:

I"m hoping for a $2000 Taylor 12-string but I guess it ain't happening. I've been too naughty.
  12:15am Santa:

@Scott: No shit, Sherlock.
  12:17am Scott Briggs:

ok no reason to rub it in!
  12:17am Katya Oddio:

Thanks for keeping the fires burning in the cold night, Therese!
  12:18am BadGuyZero:

I'm envious of Katya. "Cold" is nowhere near an accurate description of the temperature here in Dallas. I hate this weather.
  12:22am Katya Oddio:

In the desert here, BadGuyZero, but nights get brrrrr! Hard to get into the winter holidays mood when it is warm, isn't it?
  12:23am Scott Briggs:

well the weather in NY has been fruity for months, as usual, one day it's warm like Spring next it's cold for two days. today it was rainy cold and nasty all day. here on thrilling Long Island.
  12:24am BadGuyZero:

@Katya: Indeed!
  12:26am Katya Oddio:

NY is great that way, Scott! Can remember snow one day, then cherry blossoms in Central Park the next one April. Here's hoping you NY-NJ metro area gang are keeping comfy.
  12:26am Katya Oddio:

Two fave xmas tracks in a row! Love it, Therese!
  12:29am Scott Briggs:

I'm doing ok. yep weather here been wacky for ages.
Just glad the hurricane is over it really was a trial.
I just wish we weren't losing all our book and record shops that's more what I'm ticked about recently. Best Buy doesn't cut it.
  12:30am Julie:

word to amEdeo: cookies
  12:32am BadGuyZero:

Hi Julie!
  12:33am BadGuyZero:

  12:35am Katya Oddio:

Gonna have to grab this show when it hits the archive! Yay!
  12:35am BadGuyZero:

:stretches arms out sideways: And now I dance like Peanuts character!
  12:36am amEdeo:

words to Julie: gluten-free?
ALSO: Thank You no matter what!
  12:39am Rick from WO Town:

Therese, you make it to any YLT shows? I went on Tuesday night. James' cover of 20th Century Boy was a huge highlight. Happy holidays!
  12:41am BadGuyZero:

I need to re-acquire a copy of Mojo Nixon's Christmas record. 'Cause it's the best!
  12:45am northguineahills:

The Flaming Lips did a cover of the Little Drummer Boy on the EP "Providing Needles for Your Balloons from 1994 (back when they were still a noisy psyche band).
  12:46am BadGuyZero:

"The Muppet Movie" was added to the streaming Netflix library last week. I'm so happy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47am Therese:

That is an AWESOME Christmas present!
  12:48am northguineahills:

@BadGuyZero: I noticed that as well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48am Therese:

Rick- I didn't make it to any of the YLT shows this year. Which makes me sad!
  12:51am BadGuyZero:

I still have vivid memories of going to Northpark Cinema III & IV to see "The Muppet Movie." I had the soundtrack on 8-track and it rarely left the player in our Datsun. One of the gifts Santa brought me that year was a book that was essentially the script with lots and lots of photos from the movie.
  12:53am BadGuyZero:

Gene Parmesan!
  12:54am amEdeo:

  12:55am amEdeo:

I told you he was good!
  12:56am Chop Scott:

Therese! Super best holiday wishes to you!
  12:57am BadGuyZero:

He got me again!
  12:57am JeffW:

This show is great! I finally feel like it's teh season!
  1:00am sweet cheri:

  1:04am Mrs. Fun!:

What is the capital of Nebraska? 5 pts.
  1:04am BadGuyZero:

Now I'm thinking about Howard Cosell explaining to Dandy Don Meredith what "wont" means.
  1:10am sweet cheri:

therese what do you like most about the holiday season?
  1:13am BadGuyZero:

I once had difficulty finding a particular DVD at Fry's. Eventually a helpful employee took me to where it was: in the "T" section because the first word of the title was "The." :rollseyes:
  1:14am northguineahills:

  1:15am northguineahills:

(disclaimer, I'm a geographer)
  1:16am sweet cheri:

  1:26am sweet cheri:

  1:28am BadGuyZero:

My favorite new holiday song is "Don't Be A Jerk (It's Christmas)" by Spongebob Squarepants.
  1:28am BadGuyZero:

Math answer = 666!
  1:29am m:

  2:07am Julie:

  2:08am BadGuyZero:

Santa Klaus!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11am Therese:

Hi all! Sorry I've been quiet- this is a more loosey-goosey show than usual...
  2:12am Kp:

  2:29am BadGuyZero:

I thought this was Meco at first.
  2:29am Kp:

So Magical Mystery Tour. i didnt realize they head to Cornwall. was there two years ago. It is the traditional vacation trip for London types.
  2:30am Kp:

  2:31am BadGuyZero:

@KP: I had a Meco 7-inch when I was a kid that was a disco version of the Star Wars theme.
  2:32am BadGuyZero:

  2:34am Kp:

I prefer Bill Murray's version.
  2:34am Julie:

oh i had that disco star wars single..dunno who made it
  2:35am BadGuyZero:

Killer robots are the new zombies!
  2:36am Julie:

It would be fun to make robots out of zombies
  2:36am BadGuyZero:

I'll be in the Mountain time zone next Sunday.
  2:37am RCinMT:

really here listening in mountain time. rocky mt high,
  2:38am Kp:

Hey RCinMT.
  2:38am BadGuyZero:

@Julie: Zombie robots that dance to Meco music!
  2:45am hesh:

robot bowie vs zombie bing.
  2:46am Kp:

Was Timbuk 3 part of another group.
  2:48am hesh:

it's chistmas time on saturn.
  2:51am Kp:

I am restraining myself, hesh. hope you appreciate.
  2:53am BadGuyZero:

I bet there's a subliminal message hidden in this Mark Mothersbaugh track.
  2:55am BadGuyZero:

@KP: Timbuk 3 was best known for the song "The Future's So Bright , I Gotta Wear Shades." I don't believe that either member [they were husband and wife] was in another group at the time.
  2:56am BadGuyZero:

Are you saving Ann-Margret for last?
  2:56am Kp:

Who's getting Residents' $100,000 box set for Christmas.
  2:57am Kp:

  2:59am Kp:

Merry Christmas, Therese, BGZ, hesh, all.
  2:59am BadGuyZero:

  3:01am BadGuyZero:

Merry Christmas, Therese, KP, Julie, hesh and northguineahills!
  3:02am BadGuyZero:

Are you taking next Sunday off, Therese?
