Links: Holiday Songs, More Cows, & More

Workspace with computer, journal, books, coffee, and glasses.Happy Wednesday!

Lots of videos in today’s Wednesday Links! And I shan’t apologize for it.

Our Hanukkah giveaways start tomorrow, so get ready. If you’re new to the site since last year around this time, we do eight days of giveaways that usually consist of Kate Spade items, books, and more.

We love giving back to the Bitchery with some fun stuff. You all deserve it!

Enjoy these dumb, but well-meaning cows!

Love real life horror stories? Sad Halloween is over? Author Rachel Hawkins has a Twitter thread for you, and it firmly solidifies my decision to hate the outdoors.

To all my large-chested friends, this one’s for you!

Did you know there are secret apartments inside New York’s public libraries? I bet those those apartments have SEEN SOME THINGS.

I’m not big on holiday or Christmas music, but I’m making an exception for Carly Rae Jepsen’s “It’s Not Christmas Till Somebody Cries.”

Don’t forget to share what super cool things you’ve seen, read, or listened to this week! And if you have anything you think we’d like to post on a future Wednesday Links, send it my way!

    The Carly Rae song is fun but I cannot watch that video with her looking so perfectly dolled up while I sit here in all my quarantine glory…

    May I offer as a palate cleanser, the very trailer park chic “Merry Christmas from the family” by Robert Earl Keene https://youtu.be/Jg407PtqKkQ
    “Mom got drunk and dad got drunk” and it’s all downhill from there

    I know I’ve read a book that was partially set in the NYC public library and talked about the apartments. Maybe Linda Fairstein’s Lethal Legacy? I found the whole idea fascinating.

    There is a StoryCorps story by someone who grew up in an apartment in a library in New York. If you watch PBS, you may have seen it (on one of those segments they put at the end of programs that run less than an hour).

    If self-promotion is not allowed I apologize, but since Christmas and holiday music are very much my jam, I made a playlist. Most of the songs are for those who like Christmas music such as @Catherine Heloise , but the more thought provoking/cynical ones I can recommend are River by Joni Mitchell, Christmas Makes me Cry by Casey Musgraves, Hard Candy Christmas by Dolly Parton, Father Christmas by the Kinks, I Believe in Father Christmas by Greg Lake, Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want To Fight Tonight) by The Ramones, and Fairytale of New York by the Pogues, and like @Escapeologist I am very much a fan of Merry Christmas from the Family. I think of it as National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation in song. Apologies to those UK listeners who might here the selections by the Kinks, The Pogues, and Greg Lake all the time. The playlist is here. https://music.apple.com/us/playlist/a-very-stef-christmas/pl.u-Z8ZotRgGN62
