Gloria Estefan, Framed

Framed

Hello, everyone, and welcome to Framed, the blog that's good for reasons that are difficult to articulate.

Since Christmas is just a few days away, this week we have another seasonal video for you: "Silent Night" by Gloria Estefan. We caution that Gloria's take on this holiest of classics is way librul: in addition to decrying war, she also sticks up for the disenfranchised and starving poor. Way to put us in the holiday mood, Gloria!

Well, no matter... our cheerful captions will chase the Grinch out of this week's frames. In the meantime, please accept sincere wishes for a happy holiday season from Gummo, Robert, Tiffany and everybody here at Framed and Y! Music! We'll see you next week!

Important blog note! Speaking of Robert, most readers continued with their astonishing string of misses. His work was obvious only to regular reader Dave DiMartino, who once again wins the $500 first prize for naming Robert's caption as #5. Way to go, reader!

And if most people can't tell the difference between our captions and those of a kid just out of the mailroom, it does speak well for our long-term employment here, right?

God bless us, everyone!
