Mariah Carey Might Be Saving the World

This world's going to be a much better place when everybody freely admits to the greatness of Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas is You." Hell, even my mom has come around, and her face is in the dictionary next to the word traditionalist. I mean, she's the type who'd rather listen to a 700-year-old recording of "O Come All Ye Faithful before listening to anything that's been recorded in the last fifty years. Plus, she thinks Mariah Carey is a tramp. I guess what I'm trying to say is that Mariah Carey's undeniable awesomeness gives us hope for the future.

Now watch this terrific video--that I've somehow never seen before--and answer me one (seemingly rhetorical) question upon it's conclusion: Do you feel better than you did four minutes ago?

Do you realize that the only listenable FM radio station in Cincinnati, 94.9 The Sound, promotes the fact that they won't play this song a trillion times this month? a bad idea. Not that they don't play it--I realize their alt-rock format won't allow it--but that they admit to such madness. That'd be like ABC promoting the fact that they won't be showing SEC football or American Idol this year. What's the point of promoting the great stuff you don't have?

That's all for now.

Ohio State words coming later this afternoon.
