Yikes! I've never heard of that one before. I just looked it up and found this site that plays the song: http://soe.hyperchat.com/newchat/u/yummy/~soe/hippo.wav. I figure if I've had to listen to it, everyone should.

Maybe it's because I haven't heard it 40,000 times before, but I don't think it's as bad as

I had never heard of it either. I don't have the right program installed to listen to the wav file. But being obedient (or stupid) I followed blm's decree that everyone should have to listen to it. After listening to the midi file of the song at http://www.niehs.nih.gov/kids/lyrics/hippo.htm, I'm not sure that I need to bother downloading a program to listen to wav files.

I've only listened to the atrocity once and am pleased to say that the attempt at changing the auto repeat tune was foiled. But enough of Rudolph.

"All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth"

Oh my gooodness Exclamation I never thought of putting in different "oh no" messages! What a bravo! great bravo! idea Idea . There must be a way to use javascript to randomly load 3 or 4 different versions. Maybe I'll investigate that if I get ahead of schedule.... whoo hoo!


I just got two versions of the message. At least I think I did. I'm sure the first one was the old version, but now the only one I can get is one that ends "my my my my". (Every time I go to the advent calendar, I check to see what happens if I pick one that I'm not supposed to. Just in case. He heeeeeeeee.) la la la whoo hoo!

The music theme for this year is great.bravo! bravo! Of the ones I looked at today (why do I keep forgetting to look), I especially like the one wrapped around the Christmas ball. la la la stomp

The "In the Bleak Midwinter" one reminded me of a sort of pet peeve (too strong a term, but I can't think of another one). I think the tune by Darke is way way better than the Holst tune. Here's a recording of the last verse in the Darke version. http://www.jubilo.org.uk/docs/bleak2.WAV

Here's the score: http://www.untraveledroad.com/music/Darke/BleakMidwinter.pdf

(This is part of my campaign to bring Darke to the light ... )

I was so proud of myself for thinking of that! I have been playing around quite a lot with "filter" section in photoshop. I still haven't even touched the surface with all the options but I got distracted long enough from "render - lighting effects" to notice "distort - spherize".

Oh my my my my my my my !! So many demands this year! stomp stomp

So far, there are two different versions of the the oh my no page. If I get ahead of schedule (ha!!) I may introduce new ones.

Oops, sorry. Wasn't demanding, just commenting. la la la I didn't mean to suggest that your advent calendar shouldn't have the Holst version, oh my no. The Holst version is also lovely; just (imo) not as lovely as the Darke version.

Wow llizard! * * *! * * *

I thought that December 13th's Carol of the Bells was wonderful, but was blown away by today's Oh Tannenbaum wrapped around the Christmas tree! Brilliant!

hohoho hohoho

Thank you, Goldilocks!! I had hoped that it was clear that it was supposed to be a like ribbon wrapped around the tree! So glad to hear that I achieved it!

I am also rather pleased with Carol of the Bells. I sort of wish I'd taken more time (ha! as if it weren't already late as it is!) to get the echos of the bells ringing at slightly different angles. But again, I'm glad it is a somewhat of a success.
