Howdy all! Nice Santa graphic. I love old Econolines.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm Meghan:

I love how one reindeer has his arm flowing in the breeze!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07pm melinda:

Yeah, that's a cute touch.

Wah is my favorite guitar phoneme!
Avatar 12:13pm Sem:

Hello, Ms. Meghan, and Underwater Ones.
Avatar 12:14pm still b/p:

Someone I knew used to have to keep at least a finger out the top of the window when she was small -- like a snorkel, for a taste of breeze that could help avert motion sickness; crucial if riding in a back seat. Even a flight-capable reindeer might need it if you change things up on 'er.
Avatar 12:15pm βrian:

Those headlight beams really ought to be red, no?

THis is fanatstic. I am so happy.

What everybody else has been saying about today's playlist pic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Come to Underwater Theme Park and get away from Seasonal Affective Disorder for a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm Parq:

I know, I know! It's a Donovan line. In the song "Epistle to Dippy", there's a line "Elevator in the Brain Hotel, broken down but just as well."

Avatar 1:05pm coelacanth∅:

well I really want that van to be a c.'62 corvair.
Avatar 1:06pm βrian:

That would be mighty crowded.

(well that's a crappy image; but both '62 corvairs AH!autoincorrect is killing me!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22pm Parq:

That was a great Christmas set, but I'm surprised you didn't include anything from the Rev. Horton Heat Christmas album.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:23pm Meghan:

I saw Reverend Horton Heat last Friday. Must have gotten my fill then!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm Meghan:

woah..... now THAT version is badass!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm The Oscar:

Afternoon all! Digging the holiday set-- I'm so glad my conspiracy-prone relatives tend more toward the fun kind (aliens, Mothman, Crowley, etc).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25pm Uncle Michael:

Cab-overs are cool as hell...but will kill you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25pm Meghan:

Oh, that is way more fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I remember driving around Colorado to go on a rafting excursion and we had borrowed some guy's old cab-over Chevy van. The brakes barely worked, so coming down mountain passes was extra thrilling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Uncle Michael:

They'll mainly kill you because YOU are the crumple zone.
Avatar 1:35pm βrian:

That's why so many took the symbolic measure of bolting a spare tire up front.
Avatar 1:37pm βrian:

Just give Tom the keys to that Ferrari, won't you?
  1:37pm Warwick joe:

Really digging this track
Avatar 1:37pm still b/p:

Bigger vehicle, same idea, but not everyone gets as lucky as this abrupt adverse-exit guy.

Avatar 1:40pm northguineahills:

Taking my first breath of the workday, thanks for the Cheech & Chong, maybe only the second or third time I've heard that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm The Oscar:

One of my favorite college parties was a Mix Disc Party, where everyone brought a mix and took home someone else's. I still have the one I got somewhere.
Avatar 1:47pm βrian:

Yep, no Christmas presents. Just good cooking.
Avatar 1:49pm northguineahills:

I haven't started xmas shopping yet. I only have to get stuff for my immediate family. I only start shopping for my wife after xmas, as everything is cheaper, she's never complained.
  1:49pm queems:

i love giving gifts, but i make a lot of stuff for people
Avatar 1:50pm βrian:

By lamb, do you mean baby lamb?
Avatar 1:50pm northguineahills:

no one in my family has a decent palette, so my cooking is lost on them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm The Oscar:

Going on my customary last-payday-before-Christmas gift card hunt after work tonight. Wheeee!
Avatar 1:51pm northguineahills:

(my wife misses my cooking). About to go make some dim sum for lunch at home if I can finish this project.
Avatar 1:52pm northguineahills:

@βrian: as opposed to adult lamb?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm Meghan:

hahaha.... Well at least it isn't happening on Christmas Eve!

And homemade gifts are lovely. Lots of love and thought in them.

And yes, baby sheep= lamb. Baaaaaaah.
Avatar 1:56pm βrian:

@NGH: For emphasis, don't you know. Baby, baby, baby lamb??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm The Oscar:

The gift stigma I've never understood is when people think it's improper to give used items as gifts (books, records, etc). I always LOVE getting used gifts-- there's a better chance of getting something truly weird, and it shows they went out of their way to find something that reminds them of you.
  1:57pm queems:

one of my favorite signs in astoria where i used to live was on a butcher shop and just said BABYLAMBGOATPIG

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:58pm Meghan:

Avatar 1:59pm northguineahills:

Thanks Meghan!
Avatar 1:59pm βrian:

(I'm quasi-vegetarian, but lamb is the only meat I miss. The sound of the electric roasting spit is a hypnotic memory ...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm The Oscar:

Also loving everything I've heard off this KG/LW. I might need to pick it up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm Meghan:

Best gift I got to give a friend was a record signed by the guy she had a crush on at Mystery Train Records on Newbury St. The guy was the singer of Gigolo Aunts. She was embarrassed and excited all at the same time. Wonder if she still owns it.... since this was back in High School....
Avatar 2:02pm northguineahills:

Bonus Meghan!

I eat meat maybe once every 10 days, and only if I know it will be good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Meghan:

one song bonus!
Avatar 2:05pm northguineahills:

@The Oscar: Very true. Too bad my family only like shiny and new things, but mrs. ngh has good tastes, and there are some good and funky thrift stores around here.
Avatar 2:06pm βrian:

Went to a lamb farm a few years back. Nearly as cute as piglets.
  2:06pm Warwick joe:

This song makes me sad. It reminds me of a road trip in the summer. Specifically driving up the Delaware river. I️ loathe winter
Avatar 2:07pm Sem:

Nice, nice, thanks for the bonus track(s), see you next time, Meghan>
Avatar 2:20pm coelacanth∅:
