Ummm...sorry about the picture to your left. I, uh, well...it's really inappropriate, I know. See, I had another picture that might have worked, but I decided to use it for another, later, post. So. Errr...what can I say. I'm an Oregon State fan. Yeah.
Somehow I don't think Mae West would've minded too much.
I spend all year trying to do informative posts about artists I really, like, care about, man. Hopefully inject something witty or definitive or slightly interesting about the musician that will make you want to listen to them. Maybe throw in a political rant or a not-so-veiled swipe at the White Stripes (for more on my feelings about the family White, see my first post after Christmas). Usually this is done with the illusion that folks actually read the post, and don't just jump to the free music.
Then I hit the Christmas posts, and it's all quick in and outs.
What can I say? Good god, man, things will return to normal after the holiday. For now it's all about the wintry cocktails (See Locust Street). None of the songs posted over this period of time are meant to be portrayed as the best, brightest, or most important of an artist's work. Nah, it's just for fun. For now. Remember fun?
Did I mention fun? Did I mention Mae West? What can I say that you don't already know about Mae West? She was in a few films in her life. Did some singing and musical type stuff. Some say she was a forerunner in the fight for women's sexual equality. And...she did some Christmas songs. Yup.
