[DJ RJ’s ModCast] I Want a Cold Cold Christmas

If you’ve been reading the last few years, I make a post of Winter Holiday/X-Mas music every year —yes, I acknowledge that, as a polytheist, this might seem a tad weird, but as a fag who has an unholy love of anything with glitter on it, I’m sure it makes some amount of sense.

I know what you’re thinking and nope, sorry, Hazlewood released the album that one is on after demoustaching. I know, I know, it seems wrong to me, too, Lee hazlewood without a mustache, but it happened and we don’t talk about it.

While I have you here, today only, I have a coupon code for my Etsy shop. In theory, it’s a Tumblr exclusive, but this gets cross-posted to there, anyway, so go check it out. ☺
