I’m only singing …

January 8th, 2018Posted by Nancy


One of the not-to-be-missed events of the year is the annual ChiSeries Christmas bash.  This year, the theme was “Putting the X in Xmas” and included some incredible contributions, including:

  • Madeline Ashby doing a biblical rendition of “Go the Fuck to Sleep”
  • David Demchuk, very dapper,  traumatizing us for for life with the story of “Anoushka the Christmas Spider”
  • Jason Taniguchi sharing Fox Mulder’s reply to the little girl who wondered if there really is a Santa Claus
  • Don Bassingwaite revisiting two of his Darby Cavendish holiday classics
  • Kari Maaren making us laugh so hard at her Star Wars and evil Christmas Monster songs that we made her laugh
  • Mike Byrant leading us all in the chorus to The Atheist Christmas

The talented Gemma Files and I contributed a version of that beloved tale of Christmas extortion known as “Santa Baby” while channeling Harley Quinn (Gemma) and a beat poet (me).  Then the whole gang wrapped it up with a singalong of “Fairytale of New York.”  That’s Gemma owning the mic and me trying to hit the high notes.

A wonderful evening was had by all.  If you’re in Toronto next year, the third week of December, don’t miss it.

And here’s how Santa Baby sounds when it’s performed by the divine Miss Eartha Kitt.
