Christmas, Christmas Time Is Here
It wouldn't be Christmas without a new 7-inch release from David Bazan on Suicide Squeeze Records. This year Bazan takes on "Away in a Manger" and "O Little Town of Bethlehem." No word on whether he'll add verses to the songs, as he did last year with "Silent Night" (see above) and "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen." It's only $6 and it's a small, 1,000 copy release, so this won't last long.
And, while we're on the subject of Christmas, be sure you download Sufjan Stevens' "Sister Winter" and "That Was the Worst Christmas Ever."
Speaking of Christmas, is the War on Christmas™ still going on? Or did they send all those troops to Iraq?
