morning babble: Remembering the scary elf from “Christmas in Hollis”/ Newsletter sign-up – do it!/ George Carlin quote

morning babble / Monday 12-19-22

This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes, it gets tidied up; but other times, not so much. When all else fails: watch the video!

Run DMC “Christmas in Hollis” – 1987 – I was 14. No YouTube to visit to watch that video over and over again. Only had MTV’s little countdown show around 7pm. I even think this was before TRL. ANYWAY – I would wait around anxiously awaiting watching and hearing that song – besides owning the cassette (at that time), this was the only way to guarantee getting your fix in on a certain song. That video did scare me a little – that elf – not sure what he was doing. (play clip) Looks a little like Pete Davidson. If they remake that video, call Pete up for the elf.

Anyway – I loved that whole album A Very Special Christmas

I had a cassette, CD, now a vinyl of that

13 days until EXIT PLAN

Happy Monday! Some Christmas festivities have already begun. Hanukkah is underway too – that began last night and continues through next Monday.


I talked about finally beginning a Babble Newsletter and it’s coming, BUT – after Friday’s video, I was notified by several people that the “sign-up” on my website went MIA. It’s all fixed now. There’s a tab designated for signing up. Go do it. First newsletter is coming out during the “Taint Week” where it ain’t Christmas and ain’t New Year’s

Leave out a charcuterie board for Santa!

Please subscribe on YouTube and spread the Babble wherever you can – Thank you!
