Good god, the end of 2012 is nigh! There’s nothing like a blogbligation to force me to do something with my photos (in case you haven’t noticed, I have a terrible habit of copying the files to my computer and then forgetting about them). Here are some festive ones I took at the San Diego Zoo on Christmas Day 2010. Since my family doesn’t really celebrate the holidays, going to the zoo has become somewhat of a tradition for C and me. It’s open, there aren’t too many people around, and the animals seem to know it. We lucked out two years ago and caught the polar bears romping together in their enormous pool.

Since I’ve dusted off some old photos, I might as well share the rest of my KALX playlists from 1993 (check the end of this post). Yes, I know they’re pretty much the same as my October and November playlists from that same year. Yes, I’m aware emo hardcore and Broadway musicals don’t really mesh. Despite this, I’m doing a show today from 12:30-3pm PST and am considering playing a set from each. Tune in to see if sanity prevails!
