The Carpenters - Merry Christmas Darling

I freely admit that my friend Tom and I both had a massive crush on Karen Carpenter back in 1974. I got the Carpenters' "Christmas Portrait" off of iTunes last year, only to discover that I've never really lost that crush. Who can resist that gorgeous alto voice?

For you hipsters who pretend you can't stand this kind of music, grow up! Bet if I voice-activated your iPod (like the TV commercial), the Carpenters would be on it.

This is a slightly corny video of one of my favorite songs from that album. This one's for you, SM!

Sorry no Carpenters, lots of Def Leppard.
Can't you ditch the word verification?

Come on now--no Jewel, Celine Dion, or Village People? I'm gonna ask your wife.

I kind of like the nonsense words, but for a friend, consider it done. (If I get phished or spammed, I'm gonna forward it all to your blog).

The words aren't so bad they just blur them so much, it took me three trys to get it right.

None of those artists but there are some that I am alot more ashamed to admit to.
