Hideout: Bibliodiscoteque #8

The Mission

Bibliodiscoteque believes in the power of stories. Be they the words laid down by the famous, the infamous, the cult, or the mundane, stories are humanity’s greatest invention. Each month Bibliodiscoteque releases a podcast creating rock ‘n’ roll soundtracks for its favorite authors and novels.

We also review the latest in Noir, Science Fiction, Rock 'n' Roll, Punk, and Comics. Basically, if we like it, we review it

A Very Special Bibliodiscoteque Christmas Special: Happy Birthday Jesus, Baby!:A Musical Tribute to the Reverend John R. Carlson

I blame it all on Charles Dickens.

Certainly he wrote the second most popular Christmas tale of all time, but his is all about economics in a season designed for the celebration of a co-opted pagan right. Like Scrooge, punished and coerced for his greed and self centered attitude, every year we tend to give give give until it hurts hurts hurts in a similar effort to assuage our guilt for not giving or caring throughout the year.

Dickens sparked this concept that the biggest turkey can make up for our lack of kindness and animosity for our fellow man.

Dickens’ allegory of a cold un-mourned grave, for those of us who don’t help our fellow humans, should be saved for the long summer days when we need it most. Sure Victorian winters must have been difficult but the winter of the soul is so much darker.

Let this be the season you hear the consumptive cough and feel the weight of each link. However, rather than letting the fire of our humanity die under the world around us, spend the days smashing the bonds like Cool Hand Luke fleeing from the hounds and the Man with No Eyes. Don’t change because of the threat from an otherworldly being. Change because we are humans and, to quote another famous Brit, we need to be loved/Just like everybody else does. We don’t have time to sit around and wait. Action is an internal force and stokes the fires that keep us warm

Should you not believe in the soul or the holiday make the world better because we deserve humanity. We deserve to go a day unbeaten, undefeated, and not unloved.

Fight against the ease of cynicism and anger so we don’t have to spend money and time making up for it later.
