Happy solstice, happy shoveling !

It’s hard to believe that winter’s only now finally here — in the technical sense — considering that we’ve already gotten more snow dumped on us here in Boston in the last week or so than we had during the entire season last year. I mean, fa Chrissakes, I can’t find a pahking spot to save my life.

Speaking of Chrissakes, being that time of year and all, I’m making an effort today to transcend my fatigue of X-mas muzak in order to bring you, once again, “remix-mas” — my mix’n’mash of lots of well-worn holiday favorites. Longtime readers will no doubt be as sick of this mix as of any other seasonal sounds, but for any newcomers out there, here ya go. Don’t say I never gave ya nothin —

wayne&wax, “remix-mas

Ho ho ho — and a bottle of rum (& Manischewitz). Lean wit it, knamean —

    i loooove that de la track! it’s ALWAYS reminded me of the holidaze, prolly cuz of those damn bells!

    props for this, i’ve never heard it, and am really enjoying it as we close in on the 25th.

    i was trying to convince my wife of the merits of mannheim steamroller (minus the horrible disney-style marketing shit). i mean, all synths? all the time? gotta love that come xmas. my moms raised us on it, steady diet in the station wagon that was childhood.
