Well… time to break out the Christmas CDs and spike the ‘Nog. Advent is right around the corner and I am more than ready to get into the Christmas groove. I broke out Sufjan Stevens’ Christmas trinity of EPs today and just can’t say enough good things about that Midwesterner Mystic and his banjo. The title was originally “Hark! Songs for Christmas” but has been shortened by his label Asthmatic Kitty to “Songs for Christmas.” At any rate, the collection is a worthy addition to your iPod – just the right mix of emo and celebration for the Advent season.
On another note, I am sooo glad to be coming to the end of this quarter. My student load was pretty high and I am cresting the assessment burn-out phase at present. Soon and very soon… this too shall pass.
BTW – if anyone has top Christmas CDs we need to have on constant rotation… lets hear it!
