Christmas Songs, Bad Sex, and Rube Goldberg

First, I mentioned picking up the latest KROQ Kevin & Bean Christmas album... a few tunes from it, and one from the 2003 disc:

She Wants Revenge - Hazy Shade Of Winter (Bangles cover, from Kevin & Bean's Super Christmas, KROQ's 2006 Christmas album. Edited to note the correction of the erudite xolondon that the song was first done by Simon & Garfunkel)

Jack's Mannequin - Lights and Buzz (also from Kevin & Bean's Super Christmas)

Cartel - Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree (from Kevin & Bean's Super Christmas)

Rooney - Merry Christmas Everybody (from The Year They Recalled Santa Claus (As Told By Kevin & Bean), their 2003 Christmas album)

Next, Iain Hollingshead, a journalist and first-time author, won The Bad Sex In Fiction Award from The Literary Review a couple days ago. Hollingshead has written about the (dis)honor, which judges said was intended "to discourage him from further attempts".

The Guardian helpfully provides all the shortlisted bad sex excerpts.

And by adding a video of a Rube Goldberg device used to make a ramen dinner, this post has sex (albeit of the bad variety), rock and roll, and... food, and, well, Christmas. I'm posting this at, looks like 4:27, so no help there with a cheap drug joke...

I just love that A. Krause song you posted a few weeks ago that isn't really about chimneys, winky wink.

Hazy Shade is an S&G song, didja know?

Er, I was just checking to see if anyone was paying attention. Thanks, that was sloppy of me. :o

Glad you love the naughty "chimneys" song. ;)
