Some people hang the holly, others decorate the tree, and a few even terrorize the neighborhood with off-key caroling.

Not us.

Here at Quick Stop Entertainment, we’re celebrating the holiday season by giving a little something back to you, our readers (you know who you are).

Every weekday leading up to the holiday break, we’ve got uber-exclusive gifts provided by a whole range of artists, actors, comedians, and studios. One a day, straight from them to you (and you can check out last year’s fun here).

Ain’t that cool?

Today, we’ve got an exclusive holiday greeting from cyber-troubadour Jonathan Coulton - an evil, evil man who must be destroyed.

Why this call to action? Because he’s immensely talented, an amazingly gifted songwriter, and his incredible creativity both intimidates a normal, ungifted person like myself and drives me to distraction with catchy tunes and wordplay.

Damn him to hell, I can’t stop listening to his music.

That includes his first album Smoke Monkey, his first EP, Where Tradition Meets Tomorrow, the complete 4-disc collection of his online songwriting experiment, Thing-a-Week, and his greatest hits compilation JoCo Looks Back.

You can purchase all of his discs, plus other merch - as well as partake of more sonic goodness - at www.JonathanCoulton.com. While you’re over there, be sure to check out all 52 Things - and pick up his CDs. And pledge your life to him. That talented bastard. Until then, here’s his holiday message to you, the masses…

    I don’t know if there is a word in our language to do justice to the pure, raw message delivered here. I…I think I shall weep now and ponder what I’ve gleaned.

  2. Jason Says:

    I feel like there is a little bearded cyber-celebrity in all of us, flipping Ken Plume the bird, right along with Jonathan Coulton.

  3. Bucket-Hat Bobby Says:

    Done like a professional, or at least a professOR

  4. Jonathan Coulton » Blog Archive » Holiday Magic Says:

    [...] do something for his annual Holiday Havoc extravaganza, and I usually weasel out of it in some way. This year was no exception. And yes, those are the same potato sticks I was eating at the end of the Monkey Shines credit [...]

  5. Lance Says:

    Once again JoCo proves his awesomeness.
    We bow before you great one and shower you with gifts of monkeys and robots

  6. MarcyT Says:

    What a very silly man he is, too….. ;p

  7. JoAnn in VA Says:

    Beautiful groveling Paul- a really really wonderful act of sheer submission. I look forward to seeing you do so again at the Birchmere when next the three of you perform here. That, or see the slaves rise up, burst their chains and completely steal focus from the bearded one, whichever; both would be good.

  8. Sean Says:

    Where can I buy one of them there small slaves to feed me xmas snaks ?
