Perhaps Run-DMC captured the spirit of the season best when they wrote:
Snow’s on the ground, snow white so bright
In the fireplace is the yule log
Beneath the mistle toe as we drink egg nog
The rhymes you hear are the rhymes of Darryl’s
But each and every year we bust Christmas carols
For yes, it is the time of year when we wish our readers seasonal salutations [note our PC avoidance of the term “Xmas” etc] and the best of everything for 2009.
We’re looking forward to “early next year” and the premiere screening of our new 3-part TV series, the imaginatively titled The Art Life 2, and the release in the coming weeks of special “webisodes”. We’ll keep you posted.
In the meantime, please enjoy this classic Xmas music video for Christmas In Hollis by RUN-DMC, the rappers who put the ho into ho ho ho.
