Hey Everybody. A happy holidays to you. I thought I’d share this stupid awesome video with you as my little way of celebrating another successful solstice season. This is my fourth year doing Christmas covers of songs from 90s bands, and I don’t think I’ll be stopping the tradition anytime soon. So, I’ve included not only this year’s, but all the previous years just for good measure. It’s an amazing study in the annals of my facial hair too!
Stay jolly. Stay safe. Stay un-sober. Watch out for Drunk Uncle.
The Flaming Lips – “Christmas at the Zoo”
Weezer – “Christmas Song”
Pearl Jam – “Let Me Sleep (It’s Christmas Time)”
Local H – “Disgruntled Christmas”

Yay, more 90s off. Not only have I missed posting here recently, but I’ve also missed my favorite method of time-waste. So, to recap:
Hoffie, with Everclear’s “Strawberry”
Hoffie again, with the Eels’ “Climbing to the Moon”
These happened over a month ago, but today the Bearded One chimed in with Dr. Dre’s (and covered by Ben Folds) “Bitches Ain’t Shit”
I was inspired, so I went for the Fugees’ “Mista Mista”
Fun round all in all. Me approves.
Hoffie pointed out several days ago that it was the first anniversary of the 90s Off when he posted this video, a medley of every song off Radiohead’s OK Computer:

I was humbled and so proud of our little baby for reaching this milestone (in this region, the infant mortality rate is exceptionally high). So, I decided to do a medley as well, playing a song from each year of the 90s:

Stay tuned for Halloween. I can’t speak for the rest of the crew, but I’ve got a good one coming.
The Bearded Shithead with Modest Mouse’s “Styrofoam Boots”
Hoffie with the Toadies’ “Tyler”
and me limping in with Frente!’s “Labour of Love”
Mr. Chris “Hoffie” Hofstrand, with Local H’s “All the Kids are Right”
Mr. Chas “I Can’t Position a Webcam Straight” Hoppe, with the Deftones’ “Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)”
The pace of the 90s off has clearly slowed down, but here are the past two rounds:
“Disgruntled Christmas” by Local H
“I Want an Alien for Christmas” by Fountains of Wayne
