Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone.

To celebrate, let’s do this video of what is, by some measures, the world’s most popular Christmas song.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone.

Just like I said I would, here’s the video of one of the songs that I said would “surely make it” to my best Christmas songs list:

Sorry, the other one will have to wait until next Christmas Eve, (as befits the title).

Also, thank you to Vevo for making it possible to post the audio and not have to use a pretty crummy video with outtakes at the end.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!

To celebrate, why don’t I put on a video of one of the few cover songs to be better than the original?

Victoria Day 2013

Happy Victoria Day, everyone.

This Victoria Day

Today is Victoria Day, a national holiday here in Canada that signifies the birthday of Queen Victoria. I won’t comment on the fact that Canada is a constitutional monarchy or propose changing it, other than to say that our system is working well enough.

I would prefer that the sexist institution of male–preference primogeniture be replaced with a sex–neutral system. That way, females would have as much chance to inherit the throne as males. However, I don’t expect it to change in the immediate future; the next three people in line to inherit the throne, Princes Charles, William, and Harry, are all male, and changing the succession rules would require the consent of all countries that recognize our queen as head of state.

Two holidays

It’s Asian Lunar New Year Year today in China, Korea, Vietnam, and their expat communities. In the Chinese Zodiac, it’s the year of the Ox, just like the year I was born. So, happy Asian Lunar New Year.

Also, on my yesterday, it was Australia Day in Australia. But there are Australian expats, right? Happy Australia Day.
