Bah Humbug. In October, Already.


Recommended Posts

This may have been up on the Reverb website for awhile as I hadn't checked it this week until last night, but they've already got a "Holiday Gift Ideas"/"Holiday Buying Guide" section up now.   Bah Humbug for/to having that on their website this early.

On top of that, no Charlie Brown/Peanuts specials on US regular broadcast TV this season.  Instead, it's on Apple TV+ only, so families will have to gather around the computer/tablet/phone to watch instead of together around the communal TV:

Methinks Charlie Brown already had the perfect way to sum up 2020 so far: "I got a rock."  <_<

In the meantime, here's a little something to contribute to the festive mood:  https://www.xmasclock.com/

And have a heapin' helpin' of Vince Guaraldi, anyway:

A radio station in my area switched to Christmas music 24/7 10 DAYS AGO!!!  I deleted their preset on my car radio.  I'm not a complete Grinch, but WTF???

What marketing research shows that people want to hear Christmas music in October? 

My survey of one person says 0% of people do.

Love me some Vince G 3 around the holidaze! I mean, seriously, after burning out on the old time classics, TSO, Bob Rivers parodies, George Winston, and even Merry Axemas I & II, VG3 is a breath of fresh air.

Sirius XM Soultown (station 49) is usually a fantastic mix of MOTOWN and Stax recordings.  Sometime around November they switch over to soul artists performing Christmas music.  A fantastic change of pace. 

I see your humbug and raise you Al Green performing "White Christmas!"  💖

Highly recommended for the humbug-afflicted.
