Video Advent Calendar

After last year’s successful 25 songs in 25 days special Advent Calendar 2015, I’m back in 2016 with a video Advent calendar that will blow your bows off. Let’s do it!

Check back each day and you’ll be treated to a new treat as new videos get added to the playlist, or go back if you’ve missed one–there’s no right or wrong way of doing it. Unless you don’t do it at all. That’s wrong. Thanks, GLenn

Baby-Santa-Christmas-Costume----pTRU1-11940073dt

You peel it away and save it in your memory chest, almost forgetting to check behind it for the final holiday track in the series. It’s another classic, very straight-forward, can be played in Church, the kitchen, wherever. Thanks for listening everyone!

You melt through it using a hot piece of iron you’ve been saving for a rainy today to reveal today’s classic Glenn holiday track:

It’s kinda cheating because it’s four years old but this challenge was tough and this song rules. Here are the lyrics, co-written by Warren G and Nate Dogg:

Regulators
We regulate any stealing of his property
And we damn good too
But you can’t beat any geek off the street,
Gotta be handy with the steel
If you know what I mean, earn your keep
Regulators! Mount up!

(Warren G:)
It was a clear black night, a clear white moon
Warren G was on the streets, trying to consume
Some skirts for the eve, so I can get some funk
Just rollin’ in my ride, chillin’ all alone

(Glenn:)
Just hit the Eastside of the HBC
On a mission tryna find a gift for Warren G
Seen a rack full of toys ain’t no need to pause
All you skirts know what’s up with Santa claus

(Warren G:)
So I hooks a left on the 21 and Lewis
Some brothas shootin’ dice so I said “Let’s do this”
I jumped out the ride,
And said “What’s up?”
Some brothas pulled some gats so I said “I’m stuck.”

(Glenn:)
Since these toys on sale i’ma buy them all
These cashiers lookin so bored, they work at the mall
Wont’cha think of better things than some bored cashiers
I think I’ll call Warren G and we can get some beers

(Warren G:)
I’m gettin’ jacked, I’m breakin’ myself
I can’t believe they taking Warren’s wealth
They took my rings, they took my Rolex
I looked at the brotha said “Damn, what’s next?”

(Glenn:)
I call Warren G he doesn’t answer the phone
Maybe I’ll just split and watch Home Alone
It’s a good Christmas flick, for when you’re feeling blue
And when it’s all done put in Home Alone 2

(Warren G:)
They got guns to my head
I think I’m going down
I can’t believe this happenin’ in my own town
If I had wings I could fly
Let me contemplate
I glanced in the cut and I see my homey Nate

(Glenn:)
It’s snowing outside and looks real nice
Man, I hope Warren G didn’t go and play dice
He always gets into trouble with this guy named Nate
It’s not uncommon that they’re forced to regulate

I laid all my parcels down, I gave my cat a pet
Turn on my computer and log onto internet
Check out Facebook, type in “warren G”
Saw the following status update staring back at me:

(Warren G:)
Now Nate got the freaks
And that’s a known fact
Before I got jacked I was on the same track
Back up back up cause it’s on
N A T E and me
The Warren to the G

(Glenn:)
Just like I thought
He was hangin’ with Nate
and it sounds like he got jaaaaacked
Ah geez I’m hungry
I’m in need of a goddamn snaaaack

I saw a large pizza sexy as hell
I said “Oh I like your size.”
extra cheese with meat and some bro-co-li, peppers, on the side
I got a belly full of pie and it’s going real swell
The next track is jingle bellllllllss (fade in jingle bells)

(Warren G:)
I’m tweaking
Into a whole new era
G-Funk
Step to this
I dare ya
Funk
On a whole new level

(Glenn:)
What this track needs is some Aaron Neville

(Warren G:)
Chords
Strings
We brings
Melody
G-Funk
Where rhythm is life
And life is rhythm

(Glenn:)
If you know like I know
You don’t wanna step to this
It’s the christmas era
Funked out with a gangsta twist
If you joke like I joke
Then you smile like everyday
And if your ass is a buster
Santa Claus will regulate

Your December 23 Advent treat window looks like this:

Miniature Exploder - Minex-l

You put on your lead-lined gloves and peel it back to reveal today’s funky-ass holiday track:

Here are the lyrics, one chapter long:

I sharpened up a candy cane
I shivved a fuckin’ guard   

I walked right out the cellblock, baby
It wasn’t very hard

Killed the warden with my boot
Stole the warden’s santa suit
Grabbed his gun and got away
I’d be home for boxing day

Man on the inside
said get up on this deal
2 fax machines for the price of one
That’s a goddamn steal

Little did i know though
the technology’s obsolete
I hadn’t been in public
since 1983

But I went and saw my family
dressed as Santa Claus
The warden’s blood was on the cuff
which gave my daughter pause

Your December 22 Advent treat window looks like this:

lions

You send it on a boat back to its homeland (France), thus revealing today’s holiday track:

Here are the lyrics, which are the only honest ones of this entire audio adventure:

I
am great at presents
I take great effort
in buying gifts
For ones I love

But when it comes to wrapping presents
I am hopeless

I am the shame of both my parents
I’m impatient

I don’t get how people guess
The amount of paper needed for one gift
How do they make the corners look so sharp?
Mine end up looking like floppy tarps

Thank God for gift bags
And store-bought fancy gift tags
My gifts are thoughtful
But their skins are so awful

Your December 21 Advent treat window looks like this:

office_graph_small-e1310388639706

You feed it to your pet horse revealing today’s joyous Joy Division-inspired track:

Here are the lyrics, which are fresh, local AND organic:

Snow is white water
He Is Harry Potter

We all know how the story goes
From boy to man over eight film span

An allegory certainly
But is it truly a  Christmas movie?

There’s always a part about holidays
Harry sometimes leaves, he often stays
They exchange presents and it always snows
They wear cute sweaters and Christmas robes

If it’s about magic and friendship
Is that not Christmas?
Is That not Christmas?

Your December 20 Advent treat window looks like this:

saskatoon-jam-wrinkle

It shatters after hearing me sing revealing today’s holiday track:

Here are the lyrics, inspired by mother nature herself:

I’m out of pens I have no pencils
No cardboard and don’t have stencils
Envelopes I don’t got none
Go to computer have some fun

Photoshop pick some clip art
Select a font, they’re a la carte
I’ll save on stamps I’ll wow my aunts
Digital christmas card

Yeahhhhh baby
Send a card through email
It don’t take much, to get in touch
when your family’s got email

Ensure that you BCC
so that your contacts will not see
that they’re not special to receive
a card you sent everybody

Check your inbox for replies
each one’s a wee christmas surprise
Try it dude it’s not that hard
Digital Christmas Card

Whoa mama
Post it up on Facebook
Gather some likes
make a few comments
Share that half-assed card

2015 Advent Calendar — December 19

Your December 19 Advent treat window looks like this:

fire-therapy-rope

You slurp it up to reveal today’s sunny holiday track:

Here are the lyrics in perfect English:

Sitting around the christmas tree
Eating meatballs merrily
great grandmother says to me
“Here’s my egg nog recipe:

First Boil the oil
then add some salt
Stir in vinegar,
preferably malt

This is your base
now wait an hour
your kitchen
should smell extremely sour

You gotta make it sweet
and thicken it up
So break out the honey
and add ketchup

stir with with black liquorice
give it a taste
Should be tangy
and thick as paste

Bury in the backyard
and let it ferment
prepare the finishing
ingredients

You’ll need some sardines
and coffee grinds
goat’s milk, chocolate
and fresh pork rinds

dig it up
mix with your right hand

stir it up
remove the dirt and sand

seal it up
leave in the bathroom

now relax
you’ll have nog soon”

I told my dad what she had said
he said “don’t worry she’ll soon be dead
Don’t make that recipe, she’s lost her mind
My nog never includes pork rinds”

Your December 18 Advent treat window looks like this:

You take it on a date and it isn’t interested in a relationship so you’re able to look past it to find today’s audio advent track–a sequel to December 15’s Christmas Dinosaur:

Here are the lyrics so you can show your Sunday School teacher:

Christmas Dinosaur arose from the grave three days after dying
He spent 40 days just walking around eating bugs, roaring and crying
His friends and family exploded in the blast so he felt a lot of sadness
He looked up above and asked his dad, “what is all this madness”?

Dinosaur God said,
“Chill, it’s fine, y
ou can join me up on cloud nine.
Pretty soon I’ll invent humankind
and Dinosaurs will blow their minds”

Christmas dinosaur smiled at his dad, ascended into heaven
He frollicked in the clouds, had sex with girls and made a friend named Kevin

2015 Advent Calendar — December 17

Your December 17 Advent treat window looks like this:

elkrescueoregon

You use a scalpel to carefully cut it away and vacuum up the go0 to reveal today’s AC/DC-inspired hard rock holiday track:

Here are the lyrics that I thought up while cooking a delicious pea risotto:

This is a story about a Christmas woman
She stays jolly all year long

Red nose like Rudolph
Big tummy like Old Saint Nick

She smells like Reindeer
Wears a coat that’s very thick 

Cuts down pines in the month of May
Christmas Carol

Drives to work in rusty old  sleigh
Christmas Carol

For dinner she only eats candy canes
Christmas Carol

There’s something wrong with that woman’s brain
Christmas Carol

Checks up her chimney every night
Painted her grass a snowy white
Give her a box and she’ll wrap it good
She’s my favourite gal in the neighbourhood
