In other news, my good pal Kyle Stevens (of Kirby Krackle fame) released a dope-ass new Christmas song that you probably oughta check out. Even though his timing fills me with eye-bloodying rage.
It's a solo acoustic arrangement of "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day," a traditional carol that I only recently came to realize is based on a poem by Longfellow. The Carpenters' version was a staple of my own childhood – my mom's a vocalist, and Karen Carpenter has long been one of her favorite singers – and it seems as though the song has particular significance for Kyle as well.
It's a free download, so cop that sucker and put it into your holiday rotation.
