What We Do Is Festive

Posted: December 22, 2012 in Music nobody listens to

A friend dropped off a disc of music last night.

What’s this?

O yeah, I think the Malignant One may get the reference…

Don’t worry, the songs are short.

And funny as hell.

Just the remedy for the Moron Tabernacle Choir crap that’s all over the teevee.


“Blitzen Bop” heh.

    Heh heh.


    Nog is a funny word. And if there is Egg Nog, one might logically assume there are other types of Nog. Meat Nog? Pasta Nog? Oh! Garlic Nog!!

  2. Noggin Nog, a Zombie speciality.

    The Wackypedia informs us thusly:

    “The “nog” part of its name may stem from the word noggin, a Middle English term for a small, carved wooden mug used to serve alcohol.[1] However, the British drink was also called an Egg Flip (from the practice of “flipping” (rapidly pouring) the mixture between two pitchers to mix it).
    Another story is that the term derived from egg and grog, a common Colonial term used for the drink made with rum. Eventually, that term was shortened to egg’n’grog, then eggnog.[2]”

    Gotta get me a Noggin. Although it needn’t be particularly small…

  4. Whew. I figgered out what was killing my laptop battery and causing my hard drive to spin up all the time. Turns out it was some stupid HP printer daemon, don’t even know if it was related to one of my printers or not.

    Killed it daid, and we’ll load the latest drivers and see if it starts itself back up.

  5. mikey says:

    Figures. I’ve never seen a piece of HP software that worked even half-assed.

    They shoulda stuck with power supplies and Oscilloscopes (got the little red line and spell check suggested “peccadilloes”). Although I’da still preferred Tektronix…

    • I dunno about that, but I had an HP laserprinter that was damn near bulletproof, and lasted until the drum failed; the cost of a new drum was more than a new laser printer, so…. and large format printers are more constrained; HP and Canon kind of rule that space; I had a Kodak for a while, but it lost it’s mind and won’t talk to anything else. Also, maintenance of cartridges and printheads was awful.

    Sailor Jerry’s, Brie & Rosemary Crackers, Jon Gruden yelling at me over some inconsequential football game, Christmas gifts and wrapping paper all over the place, meatballs firming up in the fridgerator, and oh, did I mention Sailor Jerry’s?

    Ho. Ho. Ho….

    Off the sauce myself, first time I regretted it was last evening when someone showed up w/ egg nog w/ rum, bourbon, brandy & whiskey pre-mixed. Then I saw the web page, (probably won’t work>) w/ the “nose,” & regretted nothing

    Boy howdy, the music scene is fragmented. It’s as if there’s a niche for everything.

      I have a bottle of Evan Williams Single Barrel right here. Barreled on 04-02-2012; Barrel # 593; Bottled on 07-20-2012;

      I don’t mix it with anything.

  8. mikey says:

    Good lord. Without the sauce, my life would be utterly bereft.

    I’m going to go hide now…

  9. mikey says:

    So, are you enjoying watching the Packers eat Jake Locker’s BRANES or has it become repetitive and boring?

    • Well, it’s certainly less stressful. Wondering whether they’ll let Rodgers finish the drive, or pull him at the start of fourth.

      Hey, do you get the Super Bowl ads with the Lombardi guy giving a spiel, or is that wisconsin local?

  10. mikey says:

    Don’t recall having seen that one, but I don’t think I’ve seen any super bowl ads yet. Mostly the commercials are for beer, shoes, fast food or shows about people killing each other in very large numbers…

  11. mikey says:

    I’ve got Drew Brees making Tony Romo his bitch. Very entertaining…

  12. M. Bouffant says:

    NFL Red Zone, boys!!

  13. Well, Happy Christmas and all that to everybody, even the Bears fans…..

    No new post, and that’s my gift to you!

  14. I do have to give props to that bastard BDR for this:

    “my vodka and snow is melting
    the alcohol isn’t helping”

    Yes, I had to work on Christmas. Well, Christmas Eve…

  15. And a couple of final thoughts from Some Guys In Space:

  16. mikey says:

    Happiest of holly daze to the entire zombie family. May santa bring you all your very own Noggins full of cheer – or tide, whichever is your preference…

  17. Weird Dave says:

    Hey Zombie, a little off topic and you probably already know about this but Merry Christmas.

    Oh, and on a personal note, I wish I had $2.38M to spend on a toy.

  18. I’d watch the videos, but I have poked my eyes out.

  19. mikey says:

    I wish I had $2.38.


Go ahead, tell me how I fucked up this time.
