It’s Christmas week, but it doesn’t really feel like Christmas. Sure, we got nailed with snow, there is Christmas music everywhere, and some people have gone nuts decorating for Christmas, but for me, the Spirit of Christmas hasn’t come (I don’t think that I’ll be visited by three Christmas spirits – stow it, Jacob Marley). Maybe because we aren’t going to have a big Christmas – everyone will be safe in their own houses. We won’t see friends and family but will watch that we don’t get the pandemic spirit (there’s only one of those, and there is no happy ending).
There is good news – the vaccine is coming, and maybe we’ll have real Christmas next year. Let’s hope for that and try to keep the real Spirit of Christmas alive this year.
To help sate us, instead of Christmas music listen to today’s podcast, filled with lots of spirit, with artists Dionne Farris, Alice Russell, Raphael Saadiq, Ringo Deathstarr, Lush, Ride, Jarvis Cocker, The Beautiful South, Texas, Everything But the Girl, Smokin’ Joe Kubek, James Hunter, Eli Paperboy Reed, and Culture Club.
This podcast is, as always, available to stream or download at brennick.net. There should be more content there, and I will try to put more things up this year. The podcast is also available to download as a podcast at your favorite podcast streamer – iTunes, Stitcher, etc. The podcast is called brennick.net. Check that out sometime. I welcome suggestions and comments, too – leave them as you will. Thanks for everything you do to encourage me.
