Futile expeditions to the edges of good taste, bad morals, and ugly intententions. Late night drives somewhere between Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle and The White Castle of Fear.
Second Hand Pop, MIDI grunge soundalikes, and uncanny Japanese karaoke.

  5:29am DJ Scrooge:

Lyrics translation for the Tatsuro :
All alone I watch the quiet rain
Wonder if it's going to snow again

Silent Night
Holy Night

I was praying you'd be here with me
But Christmas Eve ain't what it used to be

Silent Night
Holy Night

If you were beside me
Then I could hear angels
And I'd give you rainbows
for Christmas

Somewhere far away
The sleigh bells ring
I remember when we used to sing

Silent Night
Holy Night


I keep you inside me
All the truth is unspoken
So my heart won't be broken
On Christmas

They lit the trees along the avenue
Twinkling silver with a touch of blue

Silent Night
Holy Night

All alone I watch the quiet rain
Wonder if it's going to snow again

Silent Night
Holy Night

I was praying you'd be here with me
But Christmas Eve ain't what it used to be

Silent Night
Holy Night
