Bah Humbug mix – a Xmas gift to you from Radio Clash!

I hate Xmas, reminds me of all the painful dysfunctional family dramas, and the enforced ‘cheer’ and ensuing psychological damage really pisses me off.

All the mixes and shows seem to be promoting this happy-happy-joy-joy view of Xmas and the New Year* – hold on, I remember nothing but upset as a child at Xmas. So ever generous at Radio Clash. we are sharing this miserly Scroogesque spirit with you as a gift; in the form of the Bah Humbug mix below.

So this is for those like me in a festering rather than festive mood, I dedicate this mix to you. I hope you survive the Xmess intact. And to the others, you give me a Christmas cracker at your own risk…

May all your Xmases be Nowhere in Sight(41Mb, 44:37s)

*actually Radio Clash will be doing this too, in the Xmas show to follow, but in interests of balance and sanity this mix was born! Damn that just undermined the whole preceding spiel. Oh well…

    Here’s a short, short Xmas film I made that isn’t at all sappy, has a twist in the tail and actually ends with somebody being a bit unhappy:

    Spread the link – there’s only one more week before it’s out of season.

    Yes, that’s me! You don’t know how hard that tune was to make on a 3k VIC20.
    Glad to hear someone likes the music. New GameBoy stuff out on soon, btw.
