The Oriental Nightfish. A Chanukah/Christmas gift of sorts. "Listening to Linda proceed tunelessly through "Endless Days" (she "sings" the "song" the way that Ken Lay "protected employees" or Ryan Leaf "quarterbacked") is an experience to be treasured, if by treasured you mean buried in a chest by pirates."

My kids thank you for getting me fired for the complete frontal cartoon nudity on Christmas Eve!

(Also, it was lame but not that bad.)

For more holiday music as if performed at gunpoint. (via BoingBoing via Arbroath)

Yeah, meh. Also, I'm confused by the "Jew" angle in the blog post. . . It's hard to know whether the guy is an anti-Semite or just a general jackass. "Oriental Whitefish"? Really?

Something about a Jew? Merry Christmas, is this getting deleted?

The guy's name is Ben Greenman, so I'm going to speculate that he might be a Jew himself, and that this could be the source of his interest in the subject. Not entirely sure what his point is, but I thought it was sort of amusing.

Could also be a Druid...

Druid, druid druid,
I made you out of clay
And when you're dry and ready
I'll stick you into a giant wicker man and burn you till you're done

Hmm. Scansion needs work.

I didn't post for Jewish angle but for the chance to showcase Linda McCartney's amazing voice. One should not speak ill of the dead, but there is this additional voice legacy.

Why do I feel offended after reading that?
