Greetings Indie Nation listeners,

Christmas in the post-War United States

Yes, it is that time of the year again where the malls and stores will deafen you with the same thirty versions of six Christmas songs.  To be honest, Lumpy feels more like Scrooge this year and is having a hard time getting in the spirit.  The reasons are pretty simple:

  • They started the Christmas music before Halloween
  • They are playing the same music year after year in the same order
  • I don’t have a job
  • They are setting up multiple Santas at the exits, asking money for multiple causes… man the kids are going to be confused… it is worse than all the Krishna’s at the airport
  • Last and largest, THERE IS NO SNOW

I decided to do something about it. I applied positive thinking and concluded that I am positive I am broke.  I am positive I am sick of the same Christmas music every year.  And I am positive I feel like Scrooge. Bah Humbug!

Oh well, I am going to do what I can about what I can.  Let us start by fixing that music issue.  I am still debating as to whether I should go postal and eliminate all but one Santa per storefront but for now….

I am going to do a series of these podcasts, this year and future years.  It will not be the same old stuff we have forced down our lobes each year.  Merry Christmas all and enjoy the following music from 8bitpeoples:
