SLIPPIN' OUT OF THE SANTA SUIT

i can't believe how difficult shopping can be. i guess all those years of subsisting exclusively off of midwest thrift stores and hand-making xmas gifts doesn't prepare you for the intense decision-making (under stressful conditions) that "shopping" entails. no wonder online retail is booming. extra shipping costs seem like a small price to pay for the wear-and-tear it saves on your body and soul.

MP3:

here's a little xmasness from one of my old favorite bands. i actually was at the last show Morphine played in nyc, shortly before Mark Sandman's tragic on-stage heart attack in 1999 (ahhhh, those early college years). although i guess that's not really the sort of cheerful stuff that should usually accompany an xmas song. well, if nothing else, Morphine could define what "sexy" sounded like just as effortlessly as taking a breath. and this song is a pretty good example. . . use it as an antidote to the usual ultra-hyper, screechy, whiney tone of the holidays.
