It's Over for 2016, Folks


We gave everyone a grace period like we always do.  We think we're being pretty generous what with going well past the New Year.  All because of our mother-in-law being one who goes all-in on the whole 'Feast of the Epiphany' thing.

So, we're calling it.  January 6th.  Sundown.  Turn off the Christmas music, guys.  Don't ruin it for all of us.  The party is over.  But just for now.  We'll be back revel-ing in the holidays right after Halloween.

We're posting this on the 5th of January because we know lots of you read these updates in your inbox via email, so we're giving you a full day's warning.

Don't make us come over there.  Do a different search on Google Music or Spotify as of now, please.

Indy Star Releases 2017 Holiday Music Playlist

Holly Hays, of the Indianapolis Star might be considered a lunatic.  But...if you're reading this site, then you'll be happy to know that Holly is just.like.all.of.us.  Except she admits that she listens to Christmas music the entire year. 

The rest of us?  We cower in our cars keeping the volume down so we won't be judged.  And, she's taken it upon herself to celebrate the turn of the calendar to November by releasing her 2017 Christmas music playlist that includes 30 songs

From Holly's piece:
October is officially over, marking the unofficial start of the holiday season. And we've put together the perfect playlist to help get you in the holiday spirit.

And who better to assemble a premature holiday playlist than someone who listens to Christmas music all year? That's right. I, Holly Hays, being of sound mind and filled with Christmas cheer, listen to Holiday Jamz in July. And August. And whenever I darn well please. We've embedded it below and it is …

Sorry, Folks: Sia Doesn't Change Things

News today in Rolling Stone is that enigmatic 'star' Sia is coming out with a Christmas record.  Of original songs.  But, fortunately, it isn't coming out until later this year.  When we all know listening to Christmas music is more appropriate.
Sia announced plans on Tuesday to record her first Christmas album. The LP will be her first release through Atlantic Records – a new home for the singer after a pair of successful albums with RCA.

All the songs on Sia's Christmas LP will be originals composed with help from Greg Kurstin. Kurstin, an in-demand Top 40 savant (Adele, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson), previously worked with Sia on her last three albums and served as producer or co-producer on the singer's biggest solo hits: "Cheap Thrills," "Chandelier" and "Elastic Heart." Originals?  Really?  I guess that's courageous, right? Based on her career, we should give it the benefit of the doubt, right?

There's no word yet if we a…

Christmas Music Driving You Mad?

Why you mad bro?

Is it because you work retail and you have to listen to the constant loop of Christmas music (or Muzak) at your store and you feel like you are going insane?  Welp...that might actually be happening. 

Via Business Insider:
According to clinical psychologist Linda Blair, relentless festive tunes can be mentally draining.  "People working in the shops at Christmas have to [tune out] Christmas music, because if they don't, it really does stop you from being able to focus on anything else," Blair told Sky News. "You're simply spending all of your energy trying not to hear what you're hearing." First....sorry if you hate it.  But for the rest of us?  It gets us in the spirit.  And, retailers are trying to drive the 'spirit of the season' moving all of us to spend, spend, spend, right?
