I no longer work in retail. When I go into retail spaces, I make a point of blasting my mp3 player into my ears. (Lately, the latest releases by The Faceless, Fleshgod Apocalypse, and Shade Empire are all in my rotation. They're all amazing, if you like your music to rip your face off.) I haven't thought of how much I hate Christmas music all month, all because I've successfully avoided Christmas music...

Oh, crap.

The following displays of Yuletide contempt are brought to you by the marginally tone-deaf sax player outside one of the BART stations I use, who has recently taken to playing two bars of a Christmas carol, followed by two bars of a different Christmas carol, followed by two maore bars of yet another Christmas carol, and so on. His sax case has money in it, which implies that people actually give this ass-clown money for being an annoying, tone-deaf prick.

I really enjoyed the Jackie Beat and Tom Lehrer pieces. And thanks for reminding me that Weird Al's song exists. I haven't listened to that in years.

Jackie Beat has gotten me through many a Christmas!

(She has lots of songs, many of them even more horrible than this.)

Warning: NEVER go into the Books, Inc. store in the Castro around Xmastime.

There is a woman who collects for the Salvation Army at my local grocery store. She sings loudly, and so off-key that even somebody as tone deaf as myself can tell she is off-key. Also, she consistently gets the words wrong.

Tom Lehrer! Yes, I have many of his songs memorized including this one and snippets of it will float up when I'm in a store. Just goes to show nothing's changed about the commercialization of Christmas since then. Instead, it's worse.
