I fell in love with Doctor Octoroc's album "8-Bit Jesus". He combined classic video game melodies with even classic-ier holiday tunes. If you'd like to purchase a copy, you won't be disappointed. Go visit Doctor Octoroc's site:



Look who's back for the end of the year tactics
Rap caroling terribly fast, and I have a little
Message - A public service announcement
So catch the spirit, I'm battin' a thousand
For everybody and the crowds that talk about stress
For all the people shopping 'round with no rest
Just take a little break and cool your damn jets
And remember (Happy Holidays!)
Now first off, Egg Nog
Call work, Take it off
Mrs. Clark Griswold
This scarf - impulse
Make a drinking game where you say the name
Of your favorite flavor of candy cane
Put a Wii-U in a PS4 box
Now it's home-made, not store-bought
(I know you're a little forgetful)
(But I'll remind you, so let's do this and get food)

HO HO HO (that's a palindrome)

make traditions
make memories
make cookies
make babies
make friends
make music
make time
just do it already

Lighting trees! - With a patented
Attack on Titan machine
Be visited by 3 spirits!
Rum, Jack, and Jim make an appearance
Fisticuffs! Betting wages
I haven't humped this many peopl in ages
Gramma's "Blitzened" -
Understandable after the reindeer incident
Bill Murray, Eddie Vedder
Pretty Girls, Ugly Sweaters
Festive - [W]rapper
Happy - Camper
Paint Easter eggs, F the police
Play Cards Against Humanity
Think twice about getting mistletoe
I know it's cute, but you're spreading colds
(Your life and through the course of it)
(Accumulated way too many ornaments)

Christmas time in Hollis, Queens
RUN DMC's makin' mac & cheese
Doctor Who on B.B.C.
Festive Humble Bundle on Steam
Holiday pirate, shoot your eye out
Don't let anybody tell you that you need a "time-out"
Eat the advent candy at day 4
Screw it, eat 'em all, it's what their made for
I got toe socks for M.O.D.O.K.
Traded from a guy at work for a Robit (ROBOT)
Coal's okay, I'm friends with Clark Kent
Stocking of diamonds, down to the carpet
Sledding off the roof, roman candles
Holiday-themed Joust battles
Obligatory festive rhyme here
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
(Enjoy the rest of the season)
(Now that you have a little more rhyme and reason, see you next year!)
