Well, we see by our watch that it's just about Christmas time. And, since this is the hap-happiest time of the year, Framed is giving a present to you great readers by featuring not one, but two yuletide videos in our blog this week!
Yes, Virginia, there is a Framed!
Our first guests are Street Drum Corps, a group of punk rock percussionists out of Los Angeles. The Corps are best known for nothing in particular, but have appeared with Linkin Park on their Projekt Revolution tour. Which, as you can imagine, is certainly good enough for us! The punks are bringing their version of the John Lennon classic, "Happy Christmas (War Is Over)," a favorite every year.
Video #2 is the great new Bob Dylan video, "Must Be Santa," off of his new album, Christmas In The Heart. It's absolutely the best music video of the year, not to mention the most manic, and we simply couldn't overlook a video of this caliber.
So please enjoy the musical stylings of Street Drum Corps, let Bob Dylan polka you into 2010, and accept the very happiest of holiday wishes from Gummo, Framed, and all of your friends at Y! Music.
