...And To All, A Good Night

This has been one bastard-assed year, hasn't it? Curve balls seemed to have smacked everyone upside the noggin repeatedly over the course of the past 12 months. And yet, resiliently, here we all still are.

Happy holidays, gang. Thank you for tuning in day after day in 2008. I know it ain't Shakespeare—or even "Shakespeare's Sister" (Haw! Haw!)—but hopefully we got to have a laugh and agree that a few songs were decent enough to make us feel something good.

And, hey, judging by the clip of the new Saint Etienne single, "Method Of Modern Love," and the fact that Kelly Clarkson's "My Life Would Suck Without You" will be released mid-January, 2009 is already shaping up to be pretty rad!

Merry Christmas. Happy holidays. Big group hug.

Yeah, that's my hand on your ass.


P.S. The photo above, taken on Sunday, is a good place I know just outside Los Angeles if you ever need an edge to go over.
