Fuck Christmas, I Got the Blues

Christmas gives me the crazyhead. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against the baby Jesus, it's just all of the expectation, commercialization, greed, neurosis, travel nightmares, and terrible, god-awful music that gets me down. What happened to peace on earth and good will towards men and all of that crap? Bah humbug.

Mel Brown and the Homewreckers, eh? My friend used to play with him all the time. Even I jammed with Mel a couple of times when I was 19 at the jam nights in Waterloo! hahaha
