Christmas in Kuwait 2016!

Christmas in Kuwait 2016 – Day 10

One Seems To Hear Words Of Good Cheer

I hope you’ve been caroling faithful readers. We have – pretty much 24/7 since the day after Thanksgiving. I love Christmas carols and both Anita and Sydney indulge me this time of year. Since the good Dr. Pelletier introduced me to Spotify I’ve really been digging it. Once Christmas rolled around and seemingly every Christmas carol/song ever recorded has been made available to my playlist – all I can say is Ho Ho Ho! One of my favorite recent Christmas memories is just a quick note back a few years ago from my good friend Ryan Bakazan. Years ago we used to make CDs at Christmas time as a sort of Christmas card. At first, they were very homemade but got a bit more sophisticated as the years went along. By the time the Bakazan’s popped up over in Kuwait we were up to volume 7 or 8. Ryan is in the USAF and as such didn’t get to stay in Kuwait long at all. The Christmas after they left I was rethinking the whole CD thing as they were starting to die as a musical medium. That year I decided to try sending out the album digitally. While I thought that was marginally successful I did get one piece of feedback from Ryan.

Nothing says Happy Birthday Jesus like Julian Casablancas covering a Jimmy Fallon song.Ryan Bakazan, Jedi Master

I still chuckle every time I think of it or hear that particular song.  So without further ado, I give you Julian Casablancas covering a Jimmy Fallon song.  Happy birthday Jesus.  Merry Christmas Y’all!

  1. Stew,
    Yes, I remember that comment like yesterday!! We did have some great times. Too bad you are here, or we’re not there for Christmas! Miss you guys. Also, nothing says Happy Birthday Baby Jesus like going to see Rouge One on Christmas Day. We pre-bought our tickets for a matinee showing on Christmas. Should be awesome!
    Your Friend, Ryan

  2. Soooooo jealous! Seriously considering a hop to London on the 16th. Would be awesome to get to go with ya. If I don’t make it you’ll have to give the play by play. Hope y’all are having a Merry Christmas, love to the fam.
