Hey Gheorghies! After being laid out by the flu earlier this week I'm nearly back to full health (any time this sore throat and runny nose want to give it a rest will be just fine) and here to deliver a few late Gheorghemas gifts. Obviously these are late because I was sick but it takes a long time to deliver gifts to G:TB HQ this time of year when you're coming from Florida too. So, what I'm saying is be happy these gifts arrived in December. Holiday traffic is a bitch.
The first gift I'm giving is my all time favorite Christmas song. It's a classic and yet most people don't think of it as a Christmas song but listen to the lyrics closely and pay attention to the sleigh bells in the background and you'll see I'm right.
While we're talking music, here's another gift. Dave mentioned on Christmas Eve but Run The Jewels 2 is fanfuckingtastic and you should all download it. Actually, go back and download the original Run The Jewels as well. Killer Mike and El-P are hip hop's odd couple. One is rapper from the Dungeon Family tree in Atlanta and the other is a rapper producer from Brooklyn who began his career at the heart of the underground hip hop movement. In many lifetimes they never work together at all, much less become close friends and collaborators. Luckily enough for all of us though, that wasn't this lifetime.
Christmas is a wonderful time. We get to spend time with family and friends, many of whom we haven't seen in months. We have yet another excuse to over indulge in food and drink and people buy us things. I don't know about you but I still enjoy getting gifts. The problem that often arises with these gifts is that our family and friends don't know our tastes quite as well as they think they do. With that in mind, make sure you get something you really want this year but going to the Clearance section of NikeStore.com. I told Zman about it a year or so ago and I encourage all of you do check it out. It's loaded with shoes, gear and clothes. All at a large discount. I check it out about once a month. Go there, look around and get yourself something nice. I did a few days before Christmas and look what showed up at my house on Christmas Eve.
Merry Gheorghemas to me! And to all of you.
