The Strokes Post #255

I wish it was Christmas today.
I love Christmas music so damn much. combine that with Julian's voice, and, to top everything off, I wasn't expecting to hear this for at least another month--so seriously, I wish it was Christmas today. this is so perfect.

I think my fixation with the holiday derives from my nostalgia for the snow days I never had and the lack of Christmas trees in my childhood household. I have such issues.

read all about it HERE, the song was originally featured on SNL

I think Jules needs more cowbell.

[many thanks to Rachel aka klein for the links!]

Have you lived in California your whole life (I'm figuring from the no snow thing).

...I actually really like this despite it being a joke and all. I'll probably listen to it a ton on Christmas haha.

Hanan said...

yes. specifically, I've spent my whole life in the SF Bay Area

1989- 1990 = Kuwait

1990-1991 = Pittsburg (the non-PA one)

1991-1999 = Burlingame (I grew up really broke around a bunch of really rich kids. Hillsborough, which is right next to Burlingame, has the highest real estate values in the country)

1999-2007 = Santa Clara (Silicon Valley)

2007-2009 = Berkeley

current = Santa Clara

Dang, I can't imagine a winter without snow. We've been getting less and less every year, but still. And it never snows here till like February, which always pisses me off because by then I'm ready for spring. All I ever want is a white Christmas. Then the cold can go away haha.

But I actually kind of want to move to that area. I've never been, but weather alters my mood so much. I'm so much more motivated when it's nice out. I think Julian's mentioned realizing something similar since being in LA.

ive never seen snow, a mountain, or even been anywhere more than a few feet above sea level. my childhood christmasses were spent around bayous & sugarcane fields! I loved it though. now this is a christmas book dont feel left out hanan, christmas aint about christ its about presents and corny claymation & songs. and overeating of course.
