Christmas time is here...

I'm supposed to be studying for my Art History final, write a nice paper analyzing the signs and symbols of a magazine ad and finish and print that lovely design project. As I was walking around today running errands or was it when I was in the lab hogging the scanner for that end of the semester photo CD?...anyhow I found this Belle & Sebastian song on my iPod. It's nice to slow down and realize it's that time of year. I've been so busy with school that I haven't time to even let the warm fuzzy feelings to sink in.

Though I've been listening to the reliable holiday spirit pick me up aka Sufjan Stevens Christmas songs box set, this B&S Christmas rendition does the trick too. It has an odd bit of a clip at the end that leads into another song, I've no idea what it is.

Anyways it's peaceful, subtle. It makes me think of Charlie Brown and Snoopy and hot chocolate and you know Christmas things. Wouldn't it be nice if the B&S team went around and caroled?
Just a thought.

Christmas Time Is Here | Belle & Sebastian

I'm back in Texas in six days.
You know we're real sorry we haven't been posting.
We do try, but we haven't exactly had time or found any bands that's worth mentioning.
Wow, that wasn't intended to sound mean.
We'll probably do a 2007 round up post.
monkey see, monkey do I guess.

a rambling list to hold you over:

Ólafur Arnalds:
a band's MySpace I keep going to whenever I'm online.
listen to "Fok".

Yann Orhan:
a photographer in France, his work is dreamlike/surreal.
click on portfolio.

playing "The Kiss", a Judee Sill song, a lot.
reading Nine Stories.
going through Autumn De Wilde's book on Elliott Smith.
reading the usual Time and Newsweek.
somehow have a sudden interest in reading about all the campaigning going on in Iowa right now?
smelling like darkroom chemicals all the time.
looking forward to Cat Power's covers record #2.
other than that, no one's releasing anything exciting too soon,
why is that?
missing texas.

also anyone out there recommend buying the buddha sound machine as a present?
