BTW: Thanks to commenter Lastangelman for identifying the source of the arrangement on Dylan's "Must Be Santa": it's a group called The Brave Combo. Their site is definitely worth a visit:



MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY!!!!!!!

Oh whew! Thank goodness you don't think Ray Bradbury is a jerk. He's one of my favorite authors.

Merry Chrismas Uncle Eddie!

Oh, I find Bradbury depressing (but appreciate that he has something to say).

RooniMan said...

I forgot to say:

MERRY XMAS UNCLE EDDIE!

Merry Christmas Eddie! I have two books I got myself for Christmas to show you... the Taschen monster sized chunks of fun on the history of the circus and stage magicians. You'll go crazy over the photos and posters. They're the biggest most beautiful books I've ever seen.

He was pummeled by the business,
Ravaged in the morn.
Come in, he said, I'll give ya
Shelter with my porn.

Jorge --

Actually, after listening to some of the commentaries on the my Popeye DVD I was thinking something like...

Popeye, Olive, Bluto and Wimpy,
Johnny, Sally, Ren and Stimpy...

:)

Jorge Garrido said...

I like yours way better, John!

Eddie Fitzgerald said...

Everybody: Many thanks for the good wishes and interesting links!

Steve: I can't wait to see the book!

Michael: Thanks much, and thanks for the interesting posts you put up during the year!

MERRY CHRISTMAS EDDIE!!!

Sorry I'm a little late, it's hard to get to the computer on holidays. Anyhow, hope you and your family had a good one! This song made me laugh!

Merry Christmas holidays Eddie, sorry for late greetings, holidaze, you know, BUT ... the arrangement of "Must Be Santa" that Bob Dylan used was actually written by my pals,Brave Combo, and Bob was decent enough to give 'em credit in a couple of interviews for his Christmas album. You can check it out here. I wish they had enough money to hire you, John K or Katie to animate/direct a video for one of the many songs in their catalogue, but dem is da breaks. They've been animated on The Simpsons once, but that really wasn't very good.Sam Hurt did something interesting for their version of The Hokey Pokey here.
Have a great new year, looking forward to '10.

Eddie Fitzgerald said...

Katie: And a hardy Merry Christmas to you and Luke, too!!!!!!!

Last: Many thanks for the Brave Combo info! I incorporated it into the post! I'm surprised that they didn't get any money for that.

What an awesome gift!

Reminds me of the Animaniacs version of the German childrens' song "Schnitzelbank" Which was, dare I say, superb.

Schnitzelbank!
