It’s just around the corner kids, not even another weekend to shop. It is upon us, so in the words of Professor Hinkle from ‘Frosty the Snowman,’ “Busy, busy, busy!”
Growing up one of my favorites was a cassette of Mannheim Steamroller. We used to listen to their synth infused holiday classics every year while decorating the tree. They have been over shadowed by that Trans Siberian Orchestra in the last decade or so, but I prefer my synthie Steamroller.
I know that they perform live shows, but upon looking for a video I was struck by this phenomenon of syncing music and lights. What makes people want to decorate their house with thousands of lights and have them synced up to a 3-5 minute long song? It’s rather like a Christmas light seizure. I have to wonder, first of all, the light bill, my God, and second, where the hell these type of people live and if they are friendly with any of their neighbors. This is just absurd how much flashing-to-the-beat there is. Could you imaging having to watch that on a loop, if you lived in this neighborhood??
Oh well…. Still a fantastic version of ‘Deck the Halls‘ by Mannheim Steamroller, and just thank the lord you don’t live across the street!!
