“It says here the retail industry does 50% of its business between December 1st and December 25th. That’s half a year’s business in one month’s time. It seems to me, an intelligent country would legislate a second such gift giving holiday. Create, say, a Christmas 2, late May, early June, to further stimulate growth.”

-Jumpy (Danny Trejo), Reindeer Games (2000)

friday movie quote

marley

“It is required of every man that the spirit within him should walk abroad among his fellow men. If it goes not forth in life, it is condemned to do so after death. It is doomed to wander through the world — Oh, woe is me! — and witness what it cannot share, but might have shared on Earth and turned to happiness!”

-Jacob Marley (Michael Hordern), A Christmas Carol (1951)

ho, ho, hold on a minute

A couple weeks ago, one of the local rock radio stations crapped the bed. I turned it on and it was playing country music. Needless to say, it got booted from my car radio presets. I ended up replacing it with an oldies station that plays 60s and 70s music. Not a great station, but not bad.

Anyway, last Friday I was out doing something for work. I had the radio on for company. Both of the local rock stations were playing commercials, so I put on the oldies station. Christmas music. They were playing Christmas music. A week after frickin’ Halloween, for crying out loud. They’re now billing themselves as Oldies 98.3, The Capital District’s Holiday Music Station. This is rucking fidiculous.
