Electric Menorah on SomaFM – Chanukah Music

Chanukah is here, and that means you should be listening to Electric Menorah on SomaFM. Specifically their NSFW Xmas in Frisco channel.

They play our music every Chanukah. Here’s proof:

See? It’s on Twitter. To listen to the channel (which is great, but sometimes plays songs with dirty words so be careful when listening at work or with kids in the room), click here. They have a lot of other good stations as well, but Xmas in Frisco is the only one that plays Electric Menorah ever year.

Anyway, here’s the point. We want to be on the charts. Last year Chanucore, our Chanukah EP, made it into the top 10 “Playlist Adds”. On the last night of Chanukah 2013, Electric Menorah was the 15th most popular artist.

In fact, just now, while we were listening to the station (we liked it before they added Electric Menorah to the rotation), they played Oh Chanuqa Bush.

This is our way of encouraging you to listen as well, and click links and share on social media and whatever else it is the kids are doing these days.

Happy Chanukah! (We’ll wish you a Merry Christmas when the time comes.)

By the way, for those playing along at home — we shaved!

Thanks for watching. Once again, please let us know what you think, publicly or even privately if you prefer.

Here are the links mentioned in the video.

Xmas in Frisco, the terrific Internet Radio station that has been playing Electric Menorah songs during Chanukah for the past… 10 years? Is that possible? I think it’s been 10 years. Many thanks to them. Note: the station is not safe for work listening (depending upon where you work, of course) because sometimes they play songs with dirty words in them.  Anyway, here’s the link: somafm.com/xmasinfrisko (They have other good stations as well, but this is the only one that plays our music.)

The Hobbit: Book and Film Differences is a really great blog that delivers exactly what the title describes – the differences between The Hobbit films and The Hobbit book. Note that I said “films” and “book”. There’s only one book but there are three films. Have I mentioned that? I’ve actually really enjoyed reading this site, written by someone who goes by the handle Quoggy. Well worth checking out if you have even a passing interest in the subject matter. Here’s the link: hobbitdifferences.blogspot.com

Last, but certainly not least, make sure to go to facebook.com/brettmusic and click the button that says “Like”. That way we’ll know that you like us, you really really like us.

Happy Hobbit Hanukkah!

DaddyTips Comment 12-15-14 (Video)

We’re going to try something new here at DaddyTips — a semi-daily video commentary on… well, whatever we want to talk about.

DaddyTips Featured Video

We’ll try to keep it brief and clean. We do not promise to shave. (This time we didn’t; we considered shaving and then re-doing the video but decided that would ruin the spontaneity of the clip. Also it would involve shaving.)

Today’s topics are excessive consumer surveys and the leaked emails from Sony Pictures.

So here it is! Let us know what you think, publicly or even privately if you prefer.

Not Fully Operational Battle Station – Robot Chicken Video

This Robot Chicken Video, titled Not Fully Operational Battle Station, is amusing. Enjoy. (That refers to Star Wars, in case you didn’t know. But if you’re reading this you probably did.)
