Yes, it’s Christmas all over again; and, you know what that means: It’s time for me to mail in a couple of blog posts at the end of the year here, so that I can actually get some Christmas shopping done instead. If it’s any consolation, and to, perhaps, dissuade you from dropping some fat lumps of coal into my comments section, verily below, I do believe that I have a valid excuse for my, otherwise inexcusable, transgression this year.
Within the proverbial stocking, rendered beyond this introduction, and hung snugly and with care, is packed my yearly recap of (not quite) the best of the best of the LOMAP Blog, from the 2011 season. (And, if the Mayans have anything to say about it, this will be the last one of these I do, unless I become far more proactive–fat chance of that happening.) Everything good ends with a montage (well, maybe not everything good); and, I’ll be damned if I’m denied the privilege of a year-end blog montage, as introduced by just this sort of dispassionate and imbalanced rambling . . .
We need a montage! Well, you got yourself a montage . . .

None of that rhymed: very well, I know. Consider this more of a prose carol.
. . . Wait, What the hell . . .

In looking over the Posts of Christmas Past and the Posts of Christmas Present, I realize that I may have painted myself into something of a
corner here, as I pretty much predicted that I would. I mean, I included a lot of Christmas music in those Liner Notes. (I suppose pacing has never been my strong suit . . .) Of course, I also have a lot of Christmas music in my collection, and it seems like a ton of new Christmas albums come out every year, this year by people like Carole King and Michael Bubbly. So, perchance, there is still enough seasonal fodder to make this work, even if there is no theme, beyond the seasoning. Lo!, methinks the Posts of Christmas Future (Whoa) doth murmur . . . What singeth they?
. . .
May your days be merry and bright.
