It’s been a good year so far. It’s had it’s ups and downs, but for the most part – if you’re still alive – it was a good year for you. To celebrate the Holidays – I made a Spotify playlist with some great Christmas tunes. I intended to release this earlier – but I just finalized the artwork like a minute ago…and I didn’t want to do it without the art. So here it is…Enjoy making Christmas cookies to it or browsing Pinterest for last minute Christmas gift ideas… any way you listen to it – I hope it makes your day a little brighter and your Christmas a little better.
Also – I am leaving for Florida tonight, and These Old Colors might be updated slowly in the next two weeks. I’ll try to sneak out and grab wifi here and there…but usually when I go on vacation I don’t like to think about anything other then vacation. I like to immerse myself and be fully engulfed by my joy of not having to work or deal with the Alaskan cold. You’ll be able to follow me and my brother, Rick, on our vacation adventures on Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag…
I’ve always wanted to visit DisneyWorld during Christmas time, because it combines two of my favorite things – and I finally am. It feels good. I hope you have an amazing Christmas and New Year.
Merry (early) Christmas,
My first time listening to Snowmine was with The Brothers Carl. We had a listening party around my brother’s computer last Christmas – complete with our own music and dubstep finds. I fell in love with Snowmine’s album “Laminate Pet Animal” – especially the songs “Penny” and “Let Me In.”
They released a new song earlier this year titled “Saucer Eyes” and I couldn’t be more happier with this track. The guitar is of course the first thing that sticks out with it’s catchy lick. The chorus is dope too. I wouldn’t be surprised if you started singing “After Midnight, Saucer Eyes…” after listening to this song on repeat, which you’re going to do…..for sure. For sure.
If you haven’t caught the previous post “Man On A Mission” by Luke…you should read it now.
Luke’s going to be our new contributor – talking about beer, mostly, but on occasion a little bit about wine and exercising (since the guy is a professional body builder). I’m super excited to add him to the roster of writers talking about subjects we love, but aren’t as knowledgable in as he is.
If you can’t tell the resemblance – he is actually my cousin’s husband, and we happened to go off on a tangent of our similar love for beer over the Christmas season – and that’s when I started to think that he would make a great addition to the team.
So…if you like beer – you’re going to love this.
Follow him on Twitter.
In the spirit of Christmas, here are a couple videos that will probably ruin (or make better?) some of the memories you have watching holiday movies as a kid. Enjoy!

More Christmas cheer after the jump… (more…)
