   Janice, not Janis of the Joplin, but of the Electric Mayhem; THE greatest rock band of the seventies covers Joe Cocker's A Little Help From My Friends. I'm pretty sure this video is nowadays offensive in a great many ways, but it's Janice, and I don't care because I still love her.

   Since these are being posted on christmas day they are taking a bi tmore of a festive turn than they might otherwise. Spotted this one while finding the link for Robins before, so had to post this as well. 


  The original carol was apparently composed by Ukrainian Mykola Leontovych in 1914 . Given the events of subsequent years a rather ironic date I feel. 

  Here is a link to a John Williams version

   Forever one of the most magical moments in TV history, Robin; Kermit's nephew singing Halfway Down the Stairs; from an A. A. Milne poem. 

   It still can make me cry on occasion listening to it. 

   I posted this in a response to a post by [ profile] elisi and meant to post it here before this; every time I see Robin as Tiny Tim in The Muppet Christmas Carol, which I saw with a friend Glasgow on the morning of the 24th, this memory comes to mind. 


   Got so far behind in everything, but I've decided to carry on and post as many as I can. This too seems very appropriate to my memories of childhood disappointments with the whole christmas experience, which began to make so much more sense as I came to understand that it wasn't truly 'my' holiday to celebrate; nor truly a christian holiday in its origins. 

   In any case, its ironically come to mean more to me now that I don't celebrate it. 

   Goddess preserve us all in these dark times,
