8-Bit Jesus

Happy Holidays, fair readers of blogs!  Sorry for the lack of posts lately.  Lots of things to prepare for Christmas leads to less time in the evenings leads to less time to post on GIMMGP.  But fear not!  We are not shutting down, merely gearing up for the New Year!  We have a new computer, and Laura has many more drawing tools at her disposal, so we should be able to regularly update the site with her amazing artwork once more.  We also have some fun things planned for the upcoming weeks on GIMMGP, so get excited, kids!

During this time of year, every family has their holiday music traditions.  Back in my parents’ household, the Muppets Christmas Carols featuring John Denver is a staple every year.  Many families enjoy hearing the original Alvin and the Chipmunks (not the computer animated abominations of today) sing joyful little ballads with their surrogate father, Dave.  Truly, the sounds of Christmas are in the air no matter where you go (mainly at department stores).  So as you are deciding what music to play as you decorate, wrap, and basically eat yourself into a stupor, may I suggest 8-Bit Jesus for your holiday gatherings?

A fun interpretation of classic carols, 8-Bit Jesus is an album of Christmas songs which have been arranged in the style of excellent games from the early days of Nintendo.  Doctor Octoroc (the creator of this wonderful mix) has done a great job putting a digital twist on these songs, with my favorites being “Carol of the Belmonts,” and “Have Yourself a Final Little Fantasy.”  There is a preview of the album on his website, so you can see just how awesome it is before you decide to purchase the music (which I am sure you will).  So if you are looking for a nice video game twist to add to your holidays, check out this album!
