Seems like every year after Thanksgiving, somebody blows a whistle and Americans, like the zombies in the movies (fast zombies. Sorry, you George Romero purist fanboys), go into a consumer frenzy and load up on all the stuff they covet, but don’t need. Some go into (deeper) debt doing it, log jamming store doorways and trampling old ladies without a second thought. The real irony: If the government announced the consumer frenzy was mandatory, you’d refuse to do it. Check out this tune… http://soundcloud.com/dj-mondo-2/dj-mondos-lunch-rush-yule-log
DJ Mondo relays a holiday tale of unexpected fellowship and brotherhood, when he and Robo-Gorilla are taught by simple, small-town folk that home is not a place, but a feeling of warm welcome in a time of need. And that the holidays never truly end, for the spirit of the season echoes in the heart of a nuclear-powered, cyborg DJ and his armor-plated, robot-gorilla road-manager many years later.
