2006-11-21sufjan stevens this is like a pre-christmas gift for myself. today was the official release of sufjan stevens' "songs for christmas". i am usually not into cheezy christmas carols and such. but this is a box with five ep's and a bunch of other goodies, and so i could not resist. the little bonuses include: lyrics booklet, short animated film, short stories, comic strip, mini-poster (family portrait), stickers.
i love when a cd packaging is more imaginative than a simple jewel case.
i don't know if i can get much into these songs. after all, it is only mid-november, which to me is too early to start talking christmas. there isn't even any snow yet!
