I hate Christmas travel - flying's for the geese And I hate Christmas parties at offices like these This corporate culture shindig, it's really not my style I'm jet-lagged and I'm underdressed and stuck here for a while So kick off your shoes, everybody! Let's raise a glass and say Yippee Ki Yay, motherfucker! It's Christmas in L.A.! I hate Christmas schmoozing with these morons at your office Their badly tailored padded suits and stupid Rolex watches There's bankers in the fountain and there's yuppies snorting coke But the limo isn't leaving, so let's hit the roof and smoke So kick off your shoes, everybody! Let's raise a glass and say Yippee Ki Yay, motherfucker! It's Christmas in L.A.! This party is a riot -- there's glass across the floor The news trucks are reporting live and cops are at the door But what the hell and ho ho ho ho! This is my vacation We'll blow the fuckin' roof right off the Nakatomi Corporation! Kick off your shoes, everybody! Let's raise a glass and say Yippee Ki Yay, motherfucker! It's Christmas in L.A.!


A Live Holiday EP!

(Note: the title track has explicit lyrics.*)

Featuring just a few songs from Marian's Alaskan wintertime show, "Holiday Music for People who are Tired of Holiday Music." These tunes span the most reverent and the most irreverent notes about the Christmas season. It's either a long Live EP or a short Live LP -- either way, it helps to pass the December madness with panache.

These songs are exceptionally eclectic, and the full album download includes bonus patter for the real concert experience. Feel free to delete (or not purchase) any tracks you find too quirky for your collection.

Comes with a collection of differently colored album covers, artwork by Patrick Race, alaskarobotics.com. Choose your own!

*As you might expect.

Marian Call Alaska

Marian Call has things to say. She sounds a little like Ingrid Michaelson meets They Might Be Giants & Regina Spektor for bourbon & laughs, which sounds improbable, but give it a try. She hails from Alaska and tours North America and Europe, and she lives on Twitter. Her songs are quirky, sharp, surprising confections in every genre full of rich dark carmelized sugar, savor, & spice. ... more
