    One quibble: nothing of value enters the public domain anymore, Congress will see to that in the interests of repaying the debt generated by corporate campaign donations promoting vital interests of American commerce.

    The music, on the other hand, is quite nice.Report

    Sexsmith…. And here I thought we got all the sex related names out there yesterday on Russell’s Sex Dwarf post.

    I’m not sure what I think about the song. I’ll have to give it a few more listens. It may strike a bit too close to home for me to be comfortable with it. I love the Christmas season, but I always find it’s demands a bit stressful, and that’s become more pronounced since I became an academic, what with being always worn out by the end of the term, then having to do a bunch of grading, then when what I really need is some downtime supposedly having to turn my attention to Christmas. This year I’m especially feeling it because I had a serious illness last month that put me weeks behind and from which I’m just now really recovering, and the thought of decorating and especially of shopping just seems overwhelming. I want to be a free rider on everyone else’s decorating efforts; I love seeing the trees downtown strung with white lights, I love the lighted up “presents” on my neighbor’s lawn (but I don’t love the folks who overdo things), but the thought of doing that myself fills me with dread.

    But I’ll give the song another listen, and try to hear what you hear.Report

    “They are almost universally horrid, saccharine, unlistenable dreck.” Did you see the live Sound of Music last night? I didn’t, but I haven’t heard good things.Report
