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”

I must start this post with an essential caveat: this is all anecdotal. These arguments would not hold up in a court of law, but that being said I would have no idea why anyone would be talking about this in court in the first place. That would be a boring case to litigate. This is just me thinking out loud, so to speak, because I think that’s what having a blog is for.
Second caveat: this whole thing is going to reek of sounding hipsterish.
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
