Age 32 – looking back ten years later, I can report that it was a prolific year in both life and career. Going back to school was not yet on my mind. But I was intentional about determining what the 2010s decade would entail for me.
My grandfather (Papang) was in the hospital around Christmas in 2010. I remember hearing that my Aunt Olive played for him this mini-album of odd rarities of non-related tunes while he was in the hospital. These songs for the most part have nothing to do with Christmas – only that I stuck Christmas-y titles on them. Apparently Papang liked this collection.
“Nativity” was actually a song I composed for a friend’s film score. The film was not completed. “Cheap Stocking Stuffer” was a theme song I wrote for a friend’s podcast that never happened. I threw in my 2007 holiday-era single, “You Are the Woman”, into the album to give it more listens. The other songs were odds-and-sods selections from that year.
