  12:18am Satan Claus:

We're all goin' ta ho ho hell!
  12:26am a.:

first christmas songs ive heard in a while that i didn't hate
  12:26am Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

... no stinkin thinkin ' now
  12:27am Satan Claus:

@ a.: That's because it's usually the same exact 30 xmas songs over and over till you could puke. Worse than commercial radio.
  12:29am Satan Claus:

I see the Bactrian parenthesis still makes its appearance when you are not on Pseu's show

(evil laugh)
  12:49am mordred:

fatricide navidade..you maik me wanna burn down macys..
  12:50am Therese:

Merry Christmas! No arson, please!
  12:52am zach in philly:

I live above the worst dance club. Your show saves me from insanity. Thanks Therese
  12:52am mordred:

i love the booder, but his birthday was Pearl Harbor day, they just made it the 28th of decembre for practical, roman reasons..
  12:53am Therese:

I'm glad to be of service, Zach.
  1:02am mordred:

Want Enlightenment, Yamamoto?? Try E = MC squared..
  1:09am There Aint No Sanity Clause:

Groovy set. Enjoyin the show from the Middle East.
  1:19am Therese:

Thank you, TANSC! I hope you don't find my abbreviation of your screen name overly familiar...
  1:21am There Aint No Sanity Clause:

No, in fact, I'm Estonian and Tansc is my ac tual forename.
  1:30am Julie:

It's cold! Winter is finally here, time to start setting fire to things.
  1:30am Joe D.:

this is the best Christmas set ever.
  1:31am Therese:

Julie! I said no arson!!

And thank you, Joe!
  1:34am Julie:

Awww..just a little arson?
  1:34am mordred:

  1:36am Julie:

No Kinks :( Did you know Ray has a song called Thanksgiving day?
  1:37am Therese:

I should have played that a few weeks ago!
  1:41am mordred:

They should flood Fukushima with toxin-leaching weeds for concentrating the disposal elsewhere..
  1:42am I work a crappy retail job:

We have a 5 disc changer at work and I made sure that not one of the eight xmas cds we got made it into the cd player before at least black friday. I guess I'm doing my part to slow down the 'christmas creep'
  1:44am Therese:

Thank you for your service, IWACRJ.
  1:45am Julie:

I have bolted my door against the Christmas Creep
  1:47am Therese:

Smart thinking, Julie. A girl can't be too careful nowadays.
  1:50am scuttles:

Love the Can!
  1:51am I work a crappy retail job:

I closed at the store tonight, and today was possibly the first time all five discs were xmas themed. It's the 11th, so I think I did ok. Does that make me a culture warrior and perhaps a terrorist in the War on Christmas?
  1:55am Julie:

I get sad when an artist I like puts out a Christmas album. You really want to put an a whole album of things I'll only listen once a year?
  1:59am I work a crappy retail job:

The novelty aspect is alright for a one off single or something like that, but full albums, jeez. I totally agree Julie.
  2:04am Therese:

Most of them are at least 40% filler, but every once in awhile, an artist hits it out of the park. See: Brown, James.
  2:05am Julie:

Even Tori Amos did one.
  2:07am Therese:

Was hers a Yule album?
  2:09am Julie:

It's really just a Christmas album, traditional and orirginal, though there's a couple ones that I guess are just wintery
  2:11am I work a crappy retail job:

I saw Thee Oh Sees at Le Poisson Rouge a few weeks (maybe a month?) ago. Good time. They played this track. I like how high they play their guitars.
  2:17am Mike Sin:

Of course, Xmas music gets played earlier and earlier each year ("Hey, it's just business, nothing personal."), but, I think Xmas music grates on the nerves most on anyone over 30 because the time between each Xmas gets "shorter" every year, as it were... "Man, it feels like we just heard all these different versions of these tired warhorses of tunes just a couple of months ago!"

That said, good morning, Therese.
  2:18am Therese:

Mornin', Mike.
  2:18am Therese:

Why are you up so early?
  2:18am david:

Howdy Therese and all.
  2:21am Julie:

this is kinda T-Rexy
  2:23am Mike Sin:

I'm actually just gettin' to calling it a day after I change into my candy-striped Dr. Denton's... Long days and nights this time of year... Listening to that Can track in the car sounded great... Decided to join your playlist fun once I got inside.
  2:25am Therese:

You are fashionable even while you sleep, my friend!
  2:25am Therese:

And howdy to you, David!
  2:28am T-Zero:

Keeping America fleeced since 1921
  2:50am Julie:

2am is too late to be eating soup
  2:50am david:

songs like this JC Brooks are late night FM to me...
  2:53am Mike Sin:

Good night fellow listeners in the Therese community. Stay warm local folks... including you, delightful DJ.
  2:54am Therese:

'Night, Mike!
  3:02am Julie:

thanks , Therese! We expect a space font slideshow after the holidays.
