***I usually don’t post twice in one day, but I have 2 very good things to write about so please don’t miss this post or the one below.
If you have never heard of Dean and Company, you are really missing out on a Christmas treasure. The Dean Family (a somewhat slightly semi-talented family from Birmingham or somewhere near the city) puts out a video each year for Christmas. They will leave you thinking to yourself, “Why?” Why do they record this and make it available for public viewing? It’s awful. It’s horrible. It’s the worst video production I have EVER seen. Creepy puppets are used for whatever reason. Who knows? This family thinks they have something special, a talent they all share of singing and acting. This is so far from the truth. I don’t feel bad for saying these things, they have to know it. And if they ever listen to Rick and Bubba (which they do, they will be on their show on Wednesday) they have heard these comments and worse. It’s as if they record random songs, scenes and whatnots throughout the year and compile them all into a “Christmas Special” and publish the video without editing or even reviewing the material. It’s like publishing the rough draft of the first essay you ever wrote in the NY Times. I have actually sent the video link into the Ellen Degeneres Show. I’m sure it is something she and her viewers would love to see. Please go here and watch the 2008 Christmas Special. My favorite Christmas Special was from 2006 or 2007, don’t remember. But you can see that youtube video here. Hope you enjoy!
