2. Did I mention that I will be out of town every weekend for the next six goddamn weeks? What is wrong with me? That is another thing about being a writer, is that sometimes people make you go places and look at things and then write about the things you looked at. What a wacky world.
3. IT’S A KUNG FU CHRISTMAS TIME! As you may know, for the last seven (!) years, I have lovingly assembled a mix of cool and curious holiday songs, and the CD of same is yours for the asking. All you gotta do is leave me a comment or send me an e-mail (leonard dot pierce at g mail dot com) letting me know you want one, and I’ll reply with the address to send a SASE. Before you know it, you will be enjoying a great tradition of terrible Christmas songs! Participate, won’t you?
Hey, baby, I’d like to do something extra-special for you this Christmas. I thought maybe I’d buy you a big house in the south of France.
Oh, I don’t want to live in France.
Well, why don’t I buy you a big glass-bottomed boat, then, honey?
Oh, darlin’, I don’t want no fish lookin’ up my skirt.
Well, baby, let me ask you: what DO you want for Christmas?
Oh, baby, I just want…a KUNG FU CHRISTMAS.
