I thought for the holiday I’d send out a little Christmas cheer. This is a comedy bit by Eddie Lawrence called ‘What Do You Want For Christmas’ (can also find by searching ‘I Want a Jagwa’). When I was working I used to hear it played on WMMR in Philadelphia every Christmas season. Eddie Lawrence recorded most of his comedy albums in the late 1950’s through the 1970’s. It’s a short bit but I always find it amusing. It wouldn’t feel like Christmas if I didn’t get to hear it. Have a great holiday and I hope you get a good laugh from the bit.
Well, if you’ve seen this title before, you know the answer – usually nothing.
Some ‘Recent Listening’. Of course for me that doesn’t necessarily mean brand new music. I’ve taken to a lot of older ‘Americana/Rock’ lately. I love the looseness, the ’emotional content’, the space of the instrumentation, great vocals. So I went back 44 years. Driving an empty mountain road and listening to The Band’s second album. The feeling I get makes me remember why I loved music in the first place.
What else do we have? This dude remade the six minute long mall chase from The Blues Bothers with Lego. Seriously. And it’s pretty cool. Found this on the web and the article also has a side to side comparison to the real movie. And a video of how it was made.
See, nothing in common.
‘Tis the season to be jolly. Thought we’d throw in a little seasonal humor. There are plenty of Christmas comedy routines out there, but this has always been my favorite. It’s probably less known than others, but it always make me laugh (and it doesn’t drag on forever). ‘The Jagwa’ from Eddie Lawrence. Enjoy.
