This Sunday is Jack’s big two-night return….season 8 of 24! 24 is by far my favorite show, and its the ONLY one I actually buy the season pass on Itunes for.
All my years of living outside the States, I never felt compelled to buy season passes. I had friends in Africa who would buy the season passes of Lost, Heroes, The West Wing; but it wasn’t until I got hooked on 24, when I decided I couldn’t wait for the DVD’s.
Last year was my first ever season pass, and this year I’ve already downloaded season 8. I justify it as the one “perk” I’m allowed to splurge on while I’m away from everything else.
So, while Monday nights might be when you’re enjoying Jack over on your side of the pond, Tuesday nights are mine. (It doesn’t download for us until the final west-coast showing has been played). Finally, a good reason to look forward to a Tuesday 🙂
any other 24 fans out there?????
One thing I love about the holiday season is all the Christmas music. Back home, they start playing it after Thanksgiving, and some stations turn into 24/7 Christmas music stations. Ohhhh, how I miss that!
I have some Christmas albums on my Itunes, but not enough variety for my liking. Well, the beauty of Itunes happens to be the radio streaming. I found one station that I absolutely adore! ‘Christmas Channel- SKY.fm’ has now become my favorite. They play such a wide-spread range, its incredible. It doesn’t matter what type you like, you can find it there.
I have particularily enjoyed:
- Santa Baby by Miss Piggy, herself
- Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer by Dean Martin (and he calls him Rudy in the song)
- I’ll be Home for Christmas by Frank Sinatra
- Christmas Time is Here by Vince Guaraldi Trio (A Charlie Brown Christmas song)
- Feliz Navidad by Jose Feliciano
- God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen by Mannheim Steamroller
- ….and the list could seriously go on forever, there’s just too many I like
If you live outside the US and are missing Christmas music as much as I am, check it out. It will help lessen the sting of being away for the holidays.
