“I decided it was time to educate myself. I would immerse myself in Smith’s Wonderful and Frightening World in the most total way I could – by listening only to the Fall, one album a day, in release order, and nothing else … for an entire month. I wanted to hear them develop and change, and try and get some sense of what the fuss was about. After all this is a band people are obsessed with. I suspected it might drive me mad. What I hadn’t expected is the extent to which I, too, would get obsessed. Far from getting sick of them, by the middle of the month the Fall were all I could talk about, read about, practically think about. I almost certainly bored everyone who knows me to tears.”

“In some far off place / Many light years in space / I’ll wait for you.
Where human feet have never trod, / Where human eyes have never seen. / I’ll build a world of abstract dreams / And wait for you.”
—Sun Ra. “Liner notes.” Monorails and Satellites (1968), quoted it Wikiquote.
“For people tired of traditional holiday music. From the offensive, raunchy and nasty to the silly and childish, a mix of music for Hanukkah, Kwanza, Winter Solstice and of course Christmas. You’ll probably get in trouble if you listen out loud at the office, but it might be worth it just to offend your annoying co-workers.”
To get the flavor, something you are likely to hear on Xmas in Frisko: Back Door Santa.
