The lovely gentlemen of Parts & Labor have enlisted my services for the next 12 days while they do a little mad-dash tour around the eastern US (I believe the quote that left me with no way out was "NYC doesn't need you, Parts & Labor needs you"). So if you happen to reside near one of these locations, please do come out and say hello. If you see a homeless-looking man in the crowd (BJ), then you know you've got the right show.

So I've been a bit of slacker as of late, but I've been busy with seasonal things (who knew strippers and Thanksgiving went together so well?). I have also been compiling my annual Xmas mix. I like to think this is a particular treat for those I remember to give it to, but it's probably just something for me to take home and listen to for a week during the "only-xmas-music-allowed" holiday stretch. Either way I end up digging in up to my elbows to find some seasonal tunes that don't make you cringe. Hope you like 'em.
