Bah Humbug! (Anti-Christmas Music For Your Ears)

You all know how much I love Christmas, but as it gets closer and I realize I've pretty much spent all my money and still have gifts to buy and the thought of going shopping anywhere is pretty much the worst idea ever. I'm pretty lucky to not have any major holiday stress but I know some of you might be pulling your hair out so here's a little gift. Every year, I get a lot of Christmas music sent to me but this is easily my favorite Anti-Christmas song in a long time. It's called "Santa Is An Asshole" by Erin McKeown.
This song comes from Erin's Anti-Holiday Album, "F*ck That!" It’s the world’s first anti-capitalist, pro-queer, suspicious of christmas-as-patriotism, sex-positive, not safe for work, multi-ethnic, radical leftist Anti-Holiday record. There is nothing redeeming about christmas in any of these 10 songs. Please note this album contains adult language and themes completely inappropriate for children. On purpose.

PLEASE NOTE: from now until new years, i’ll be donating 20% of every purchase of F*ck That (cd, digital, hymnal, packaged etc) to Occupy Sandy as they coordinate relief efforts in NY and NJ. here’s your chance to be a responsible scrooge and give to a very important cause.
 I think I will put up the old Christmas tab and maybe this weekend I can add all the Christmas stuff I've received over the past two weeks. Keep an eye out for that.
