She & Him released a Christmas album last year, and while it wasn’t that great in my mind, this was one of the stand out tracks. Although, I think I prefer Zooey singing with Buddy The Elf when she’s in the shower.
It’s the Holiday season so you’ll see a lot of videos coming out of bands & musicians playing holiday songs. Chris Trapper of the Push Stars filmed himself performing “It’s Christmas Time” from his album…It’s Christmas Time. Check it out and get in the spirit! “Ho Ho Ho…now I have a machine gun.”

Who doesn’t like laughing at a bunch of people in ugly Christmas sweaters? I even have an ugly sweaters contest at work now; that’s how serious the holiday sweaters business is these days. Rock Your Ugly Christmas Sweater is a book with 200 photos of people wearing ungodly ugly sweaters for Christmas and Hanukkah. Whatever holiday you celebrate, there’s an ugly sweater for everyone, even pets!
The Dropkick Murphys are getting into the Christmas spirit with the release of a brand new music video for the song “The Season’s Upon Us.” The video was #1 at MTV.com the other day, which raises questions, MTV is still around and they actually played music (even though it was on their website?). The video is really funny and seems like it was written by Denis Leary. The video is worth watching, especially if you like the band and want to get into the Xmas spirit.
Happy Holidays everyone! It’s that fun time of year again and I wanted to make some videos of Xmas lights & stuff around Jersey City and New York City. My wife Kristen and I went to Rockefeller Center, 34th Street, Central Park, 5th Ave, and loads of other places. We put up with the crowds of NYC so you don’t have to! Watch my videos below…
Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward’s indie folk band She & Him will be releasing a new album, this time it will be a Christmas album called A Very She & Him Christmas. The album will be released in October, that seems a little early to release it. But then again I still listen to songs from Carbon Leaf’s Christmas Child album from last year all year round so I guess it’s okay.
While many of us are celebrating with friends and family this holiday season, many of our animal brethren in shelters and other inhospitable places aren’t so lucky. Waltham, MA’s THE ORGAN BEATS have decided to extend a branch of mistletoe to these dogs and cats in their homestate with a Christmas song for charity this holiday season.
Séan McCann of Great Big Sea is in a giving mood since it’s the Holidays. Séan has recorded a song called “Merry Christmas Everyone” and can be heard on his website greatbigsean.com and can always be downloaded for FREE.
We’re in the middle of the holiday season and what better way to celebrate with an overload and abundance of Jingle Bells and Santa songs! Yippee! Most of these tracks are ones I like, some aren’t but felt the need to list them anyway. I tried to find some Hanukkah songs but only managed to find a couple. I did brief blurbs for the first 30 tracks, then just listed the rest because what can you say about the same songs over and over again? If I missed a song, post it in the comments!

“Buddy the Elf, what’s your favorite color?” Elf is the best modern day Christmas movie since National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Warner Bros and New Line decided to re-release/re-package the movie with some Holiday goodies, which is why it’s called Ultimate Collector’s Edition?
Elf is probably the newest Christmas classic that has come out since National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. It’s one of the first movies I watch every Holiday season. Will Ferrell is hilarious, Zooey is freakin’ adorable and just everything about the Jon Favreau directed comedy is perfect. Enjoy this scene where Buddy The Elf confronts the store Santa. “You smell like beef and cheese.” The clip is down below!
