re-, having arrived at hcommons.social: Hi, I am Sjoerd, and I'll be tooting from the margins.

I study old , and how and by and for whom they were made, and at the role contact between speakers of English and speakers of Dutch played in all that, between the Middle Ages and the early modern period.

I just realized this record is out. Wow! Such an amazing listen! Do yourselves a favor and check this out. Mixes RTJ4 with Latin American sounds and artists encapsulating the best of both worlds.

I keep finding new tracks to add to the calendar, meaning others need to be scrapped. Gone are some real big ones: Ludacris – Ludacrismas; Killer Mike – Christmas Grind; Wu-Tang Clan – Dashing (Reasons); Westside Connection – It's the Holidaze.

What, you didn’t know Christmas went ?!
This was issued as a B-Side to Run-DMC’s Christmas in Hollis on a 7” single, and I quite like its jolly cheerfulness. Nice production by Hurby Luv Bug, too. 6: Sweet Tee – Let the Jingle Bells Rock youtu.be/PHLSiIVxjUs
