Makes me feel like it’s 1980 and I’ve got an enormous hangover and a craving for french toast.


James Urbaniak Xmas Song

jamesurbaniak:

It’s my annual posting of The James Urbaniak Christmas Song! I recorded it three years ago and some of its references are already dated but its overall message is as timeless as Christmas itself. Produced and co-written by Jonathan Dinerstein.



Moving through #22 (Sweet Lovin’ Man). Hoping to make it to #69 before 6PM. So far I’ve only skipped #20 (My Sentimental Melody)….

Splash the Rooster

Recorded on Saturday, September 22nd: Norah and I talk about our Rooster, Splash. Sadly, Splash died just this morning.


Cover by Finnish band 22-Pistepirkko.


I just realized that Pere Ubu’s David Thomas sounds like Burl Ives, albeit like Burl Ives if he had been a character in Eraserhead.
