Xmas Lights Spin
Go fuck yourself Bill O'Reilly.
Felt good to get that off my chest.
I can't imagine a California Christmas. Too much sun. Too hot. Makes the Christmas trees look funny. And the folks who put fake snow in their yards? Real nice. Maybe I've been brainwashed by the White Christmas lobby. Yeah, snow kind of sucks most days of the winter. But there's something about a Christmas Eve snowfall that makes me nostalgic for...I dunno...my childhood? Wonder? Anticipation? As a generally cynical bastard, I can be a rank sentimentalist at times.
Buck Owens is from California. Bakersfield, the streets of. Actually he was born in Texas, but his move to Bakersfield precipitated his rise to importance, and the creation/honing/discovery of the "Bakersfield sound".
Like Sonny Boy Williamson, Owens aint feeling too swell this Holiday season. I don't want to say it's cuz he's in California, but I'm sure that doesn't help.

We're gonna have sex tomorrow. In the meantime, support your local fake snow merchants.
