Listener comments!

  1:14pm tim:

RIGHTEOUS, Rex! Though we here praise Thor, not JC.
  1:14pm Robert:

As long as the message board is so empty...what happened to that "drunken" fast piano playing that you used to sometimes use as interval/talkover/bed music?
  1:15pm Parq:

Merry Christmas, Uncle Rex! We are opening presents under the tree while you provide the soundtrack. Hope all your pals are enjoying the party on your end.
  1:16pm Robert:

Tim if you're seriously into Odinism, I can recommend the Breidablikk-Balder Rising group at meetup.com .
  1:16pm Santo Baby:

Happy X-Mex Rex !
  1:18pm Neil:

Wow. A Mexican answer song to Francis the Christmas Donkey.
  1:20pm tim:

We don't praise the Father of All, the Dangler, the Smith of Battle, the Terrible One... not directly, no. That's asking for trouble.
  1:20pm Neil:

I mean Dominic the Christmas Donkey. I always get Santa and Donald O'Connor confused. Merry Christmas.
  1:23pm tim:

But the God of Thunder, yes. You can look him in the eye, if you have an honest heart. He's gotten us out of many a bind, with agents of the mischievous Loki.
  1:35pm Robert:

Odinism is just a more general term we sometimes use to avoid sleighting the various Gods. Nobody says "Thorism", but we do have more people who use the hammer symbol than any other, and Thor for the reason stated is a perennial favorite.
  1:36pm Robert:

"Slighting", I meant slighting, not sleighting. If only there were a preview feature here.
  1:39pm Robert:

I actually do like Odin best because he symbolizes the thirst for knowledge.
  1:39pm Santo Baby:

Bah ..Odinism...the one true all encompassing faith to make us all come together is...onanism
  1:43pm Listener Jumpy:

These "Night Before Christmas" records never get old! Thank you, Rex.
  1:43pm tim:

You should watch how you throw that name around, Robert. The thirst for knowledge can land one swinging from the gallows... one-eyed, and one-handed. As for Thor, tell me something I don't know. The Hammer Wielder has got a hell of lot more stories about him.... a god you can really get your teeth into. (In a different sense than JC or Dionysus, or other gods we're invited to eat. Yuck.)
  1:45pm dumezil:

Reservations are now being accepted for ragnarök.
  1:53pm Tinderbox:

If only we could eat Baby Jesus, instead of this crucifixion-driven wafer-and-wine affair... so bland. Just think what today's beef sticks would look like! If only... if only... the Nativity + the Last Supper = a theophagic economy any culture could be proud to maintain.
  1:54pm Listener Jumpy:

Don't hand me that bologna!
  1:56pm Fester:

Leave my nipples out of it. Gawd, haven't I had enough union troubles!
  2:13pm John Wyzalek:

Nothing like drunk holiday Web commenting while listening to Rex's awesome Yuletide broadcast!
  2:14pm John Wyzalek:

NORAD's Santa Tracker and Rex's Xmas Day show on Xmas Day. The BEST holiday ever!
  2:15pm babydoe:

Holly Moley! Thanks brother Rex for the tunes! Do you have FAT FAT Santa? That is our favorite!
  2:16pm Onan Brand Beef Jerky -:

Come and get it!
  2:18pm marc:

Merry Christmas Rex...From a Fool's Paradise Faithful.
  2:19pm SSHARK:

Other new rock 'n' roll holiday singles include "Rockin' Lang Syne" and "Yulesville U.S.A." by the Rockin' Stockin's on Sun; "Sleigh Bell Rock" (which introduces Santa Claus to the Twist) by the Three Aces and a Joker on GRC; "New Baby for Christmas" by Johnny Preston on Mercury and "Swingin' Santa" by Sandy Baron
  2:27pm Tom Stein:

Did Bo Diddley ever cut a Xmas record?
  2:27pm Santo Baby:

So ive had theology and mixology swirling in my head and i've come to the conclusion that im...
  2:31pm Super Fly Agaric:

Ho-Ho-Ho! How About some Homer & Jethro Yuletidings?
  2:38pm TonyF:

Rex it won't be Xmas without Troy Hess.Please!
  2:39pm Super Fly Agaric:

Bless you, Santa Rex!
  2:40pm Listener Jumpy:

Were those beat recordings of "Twas the Night" trying to outdo each other?
  2:51pm Parq:

Had a good pal in college whose younger sister got a job at the local Sears, prompting their dad to quip, "*Now* Sears has everything."
