There’s something for everybody, even if that something is noise-cancelling headphones.
Happy holidays Thimblefists. He just loves Shoutmunk Christmas music. And Homestyle too.
Merry Christmas Thimblefist!!! The song of your people!
The kids are smiling and Thimblefist is beaming, so something must be going right. Although, one must wonder what the screaming Chipmunk songs sound like to sensitive cat ears.
What was the previous song the kids sang for days?
Why the gramophone when you can get endless shoutmonks on Destry?
What happened to the Shoutmunks?
“THE SHOUTMONKS ARE BELOVED THE WORLD OVER! THEY PERFORM THEIR SONGS WITH SUCH PASSION!”♥
I wonder where the robber mice stand on this.
Ok, now it is officially Christmas!
O.T. Lupin’s cardiologist appointment is Saturday. Thankful they were able to get an appointment this quickly. Praying for complete healing.. Praying for wisdom for the doctor and staff, that the diagnosis is something that can be easily treated so our Cat of Adventure returns to his normal, active self; that Georgia and family can be calm and relaxed while they wait for the outcome.
Feline ears are doomed.
That was Bill Jackson two years ago. Shoutmonks.
Puck, you spoke too Soon! I love the expression on Elvis’s face when he announces the arrival of the screaming chipmunks….
Wow. Alvin told Dave to be quiet on the old 45, lol. That would be like Chuck kicking Lucy when she tries to pull the football out on him which I always wanted to see.
My sister actually still has some 45s stored away. They were from her heartthrob of the ’70s: Shaun Cassidy with several of his hits from the time: Da Doo Ron Ron, Teen Dream, Do you believe in Magic etc. I actually got her the DVD for the Hardy Boys TV show when it came out in 2007. I envy her, All my 45s and LPs are sadly long gone as are a lot of my old VHS etc.
Chipmunks LP’s. A better use for them involves pretending to be clay pigeons.
Wait until they hear “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer”.
Aww, Thimblefist is a little groupie, that’s precious! But Elvis is not a fan; those ears could not get any lower.
Wait a minute, Homestyle the squirrel’s headphones missed her ears!
This is one Christmas tradition that Lupin doesn’t have to worry about.
Ooooh, this reminds me….almost time for the Swedish goats braying carols!
Go to YouTube and search on ActionAid Sweden.
So, how many more years of the Boy and the Girl enthusiastically listening to the Shoutmunks (over and over and over) do the Woman and Man have to look forward to?
Meanwhile, Back on the Nile
Serfig-Aro: Lady and Gentle Cats! For our Yuletide entertainment, the Blat Brass Band will play its repertoire of seasonal tunes. Here is the list of songs:
The First Meow
Wreck the Halls
I Saw Four Mice Come Sneaking In
What Kibble is This?
It Came Upon a Midnight Snack
Cat Rest Ye Merry
Hark the Herald Kitties Mew
Serfig Aro: And now we will accompany Tabith-Isis and the Red Dot Choir in the classic carol, Meow Merrily on High.
Choir: Meow merrily on high
The time is here for feasting
Meow soon we all will try
New recipes for eating!
Thank Cat for Ham and Bacon!
I sympathize with Puck and Elvis. I never liked that song. Not overly fond of the Who song either.
SHUT UP, DAVE! You speak for us all.
Kitty Katz I’m so sorry to hear that your mother has died. It’s so hard to lose family at any time but close to Christmas. May God be with you and your family in this time of grief. Toebean prayers boops and purrs being sent. Sorry this is two days late.
Zoomer & Yett: Sorry to hear about Yeti crossing the Rainbow bridge. So glad you were able to be with your little furbaby at the end. He and Zoomer will be waiting. Toebean prayers boops and purrs being sent for you and family. My apologies for this being so late too.
I never liked the Chipmunks.
OT: Good meowning…
..from sis’s boss Onyx…we arrived at mom’s yesterday evening, & mom & sis left early this morning to catch a plane to visit my niece & her family for a few days…
We’ve been good, but it can’t last.
Please Christmas, hurry fast.
They’re using a record player! How quaint!
What would you think if they sang you a tune
And a chipmunk and friend came to see?
Cover your ears and they’ll sing you a song
That’ll make all the cats want to flee
Oh, can they get by ’til the song finally ends?
Mm, Thimble gets high from music that truly transcends
Mm, it’s a soulful, catchy tune he recommends
So SING IT LOUD, and merry Christmas, friends
- John Lennon / Paul McCartney – With a Little Help from My Friends
I still want a hula hoop.
“What is it, Dave?”
I used to dread that whenever the kids took out their little phonograph….
Those “Alvin and the Chipmunks” songs are actually soothing if you played the 78s at 45 rpm. :) :) :)
OT: Weird phone calls
Thimblefist and Homestyle! So good to see our woodland friends. I will always be grateful to them for their kindness to Beatrix when she was stuck up that tree.
Pull out the Bing Crosby emergency kit, stat!
I love the “Shut up, Dave” lol)
Ok, so only the kids and Thimblefist like the tune, I guess. Homestyle looks like she’s covering her ears.
The occasisional Chipmunks is ok, but I don’t want a lot of them at Christmas. Probably why I don’t have Chipmunks on my Christmas playlist.
Nice to see Homestyle and Thimblefist again.
Lupin doesn’t seem to mind.
The tunes of the season are soft and gentle? Time for som Trans Siberian Orchestra… https://youtu.be/xNNwQ85xoxU
What is that artifact the Boy and Girl are using? It appears to be a sound source.
We had that album. My brother and I played it a lot. I don’t think our parents liked it very much.
Amazingly, Pentatonix just released their version of Christmas Don’t Be Late!
I’ve already asked Alexa twice today to play the Chipmunks Christmas song.
But I don’t want Christmas to hurry. I can’t believe it’s almost here. Not ready. Not nearly ready.
When I was five or six I got a Mickey Mouse record player for Christmas. The 45 that they gave me with it? The infernal Chipmunk Song. Of course I loved it at the time. Over and over, I’m sure.
