Sometimes I just can't stop myself.
Merry Christmas, everybody.

Oh. Holy cow. Wonderful. I don't know what I was expecting. But probably not this much jaunt.

It's a christmas palm tree-shaped sugar cookie with pineapple frosting. Teeth-achingly delicious!

Yeah I just let loose with the cheese last night. Just let it pour right out.

this is, in fact, too damn good. Please take it away.
I even kinda hate this song. And now I have to love it. You vicious bastard.

I grew up hearing and singing this song (because I grew up in Hawaii) and this brings back all kinds of excellent memories, like going to the beach after opening presents on Christmas day! Mahalo nui loa!

Thanks for the new Christmas song!

Chococat, I really like your harmonies in the second verse! The only thing I'd say is that the melody gets a little lost right there, since you're singing in a range a bit higher than normal for you. The tenor part pops out a bit more than I would like (but I am speaking as a choir director, not a sound engineer). But otherwise, really great job! :)

Theremin who know what that is, and theremin who don't.

I played this one and your 2011 xmas tune in a playlist while my kids opened their presents yesterday morning. So great.

Theremin who know what that is, and theremin who don't.


Thereminy ways to explain it, but the easiest is to say that it's me trying my best approximation of a theremin using a Moog Little Phatty.

mmmmm, thereminy!
