Happy Kringle... and a very merry holly jolly to y'all! Tonight's HOLIDAY SHOW was a ton of fun to produce... kinda Christmas past, present and future all at once... in a post postmodern way! Some newly discovered old songs and a few brand new ones from Cheap Trick and Sponge Bob. But mainly it's a MASH-UP SMASH-UP 'send up' of consumerism gone amuck.. a pastiche of re-mixes and DJ-mashes of classic rock songs with pop culture snippets with a holiday twist. And for our Jewish friends, some great Menorah Mash-ups too... my favorite being "Challahback Girl!"
Special thanks to the usual suspects who donate mp3s, latkes, tea and sympathy... Robbie Touchstone, Greg Wallace and Ken Segal. May the joys of music, food and friendship bright you to your feet, jumpin', dancin' whoopin', screamin' and well... you know!
