We would be remiss if we didn't note that a Facebook campaign successfully broke the X Factor winners' monopoly over the formerly exciting (perhaps exciting again?) battle to claim the top spot in the Official UK Charts weekly top 40/75/100/whatever (theofficialcharts.com) coming out during the week including Christmas Day.
This is amusing on many levels, almost none of them having any meaning over here in the States, but still.
Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas to everyone. The one song I really, really wanted to play, but couldn't (for obvious reasons), is Pass the Fucking Egg Nog by The Majestic Twelve, a band that I absolutely adore.
