Once again, Happy Hanukkah. And Happy Solstice and Merry Christmas to whomever it's applicable.
Thus ends the holiday season on Boogiepop Does Not Smile. I hope you enjoyed it, but I can't help but feeling disappointed in myself. See, I didn't get to play everything I could have played. Like "Bethlehem" by Duplex. Or the newer Shonen Knife Christmas song (with lyrics by Thurston Moore). Or especially one of the Of Montreal Christmas songs. I can't believe I didn't play anything by Of Montreal.
I should have just did three full weeks of holiday music. :P
But that's all over with now, and it's time to look forward. Or backward. Because it's time for the 2006 No Money Mark Memorial Year-In-Review Countdown! Starting next week, I'll be spending 2 weeks counting down the best singles of the year. No mediocrity here! It's all going to be good stuff. And because I wasn't on the radio for a few months this year, there's going to be some surprises popping up (because I didn't get to play them when they were new).
So, stay tuned for that. And then return your gifts for money, so you can use it to buy whatever I play on the countdown! ^_^
Anyway, here are the links for the 12/19/06 MP3s:
P.S. In case it's not clear what's going on at the end of the show, Elizabeth stopped by the station to give me a Christmas gift. Apparently, she heard my joke about being a webcam whore and wearing a Japanese schoolgirl outfit and cat ears in exchange for some pervert getting me a DVD of Dig (the movie about the Brian Jonestown Massacre and the Dandy Warhols). I hope that part wasn't too tacky...
