Internet songstress Marian Call released a winter-themed EP that you can stream for free. It features the title track, “Christmas In L.A. (Yippie Ki Yay)” which is of course a reference to one of the great non-Christmas Christmas movies of all time.
I feel we’re on the precipice of the backlash to the suggestion that “Die Hard” is a Christmas movie. I’m not here to debate the issue, but I will say that “Die Hard” is one of the best action movies ever made, and its Christmas setting gives us all a nice excuse to watch it this time of year.
