Description
BOOGA-BOOGA!! Yes, I'm still amongst you, and I wish you all the merriest this Christmas season (I honestly do!) Well, this has been a very interesting year! In summary (and I capsulize these epochs at the risk of boring you--or worse!):

* Thanks to my partner, who was heavily involved with local theater here in Birmingham, Alabama in the past, I've hooked up with a local theater group and am currently engaged in what they call "apprenticeship". This involves being involved in rehearsals when the lead actor/actress is not available and reading lines back to the other aspiring Olivier/Dench; singing where it's needed, and sitting at the piano when they need that too! I'm learning how to use my body on stage and what to do with my hands. I've no formal acting ability, but I guess I'm doing okay---I'm pretty "natural" (so I'm told--frankly, my "acting" ability falls in the range somewhere between Shemp Howard and Teenage Ninja Turtle #2). I've also been working with a new vocal teacher (a male this time!) and while you won't find much exemplary here---he's been teaching me some new things!)

* On the downslide, I've lost some of the feeling in the last two fingers of my left hand (of course, I'm left handed). This is due to some pinched nerve in my neck of some sort. Some of you may have noticed I've been favoriting you, but not taking time to write--this is why. I've been doing some prescribed exercises and it's better, but I still may need an operation to remedy it fully ("Hey, what kinda operation are you bozos running here, anyway?!) Related to this, forgive any typos!

* On the ever popular mediocre side, I still don't know what the fook I'm doing on the recording end, so hope this is at least okay!

I'd like to thank JD: he wrote me a just a couple weeks ago asking if I was okay. James, you don't know how much that brightened my spirits; you really are a fine fellow indeed.

To you all: MERRY CHRISTMAS (yes, I know it's tough lately, especially with each passing year), but MERRY CHRISTMAS, daggummit! And enough BS from me!

Michael

"Let it Snow" was written by that unforgettable songwriting team of Jules and Styne (they were terrific!) in 1945.
Accompaniment: My main man, musician extraordinaire, Alan McPike.

According to your header I'm so happy you found such a good way of passing time as you have in your Theater work( sounds ideal for you and you must be so happy). Thanks for the explanation on your two fingers as I'd wondered if it was through over use, with there being such bad drivers down those parts LOL.
A wonderful rendition of this great Christmas song as ever, so pro sounding and sounding as good as ever vocally. All the very best to you and yours, regards M.

Thanks Maurice!
Yeah, my pinky and fourth finger are kind of "out there" but at least my eye-poking fingers avoided any trauma! I still don't know what brought this on (hold on...okay...I thought that was an extra period I put in but it was just a speck of dust on the screen), but I feel confident I'll be doing fine sans the "operation" (I'd hate to have one--yanno, the only time I've had any surgery of any kind was getting my tonsils yanked at age 10 and I've never had a broken bone or anything in my life!) You are such an irrepressibly fine singer--your profs really make my day Maurice. I've recorded this tune every year this time since 2007 and (I think you'll understand this), it's reassuring to find that things that gave you a bit of a problem the last time you sang it, come much easier now. That's such a NICE feeling! Great hearing from you Maurice and I hope the coming holidays and the year ahead find you headlining all the way! Michael

Hi Philip!
I'm so glad you liked this--lately, I've been feeling exhausted (but mainly due to a lot of good activity) and yanno, when I sing, I'm not "me" but a character I create for the song--I hope he was more awake than I was! I think it's why I enjoy singing--it gives me a chance to escape into some other more ideal setting. I'm very humbled by your kindness---cheers back to you mate and good wishes to you and yours!

Thank you Kenta!
I think this is my third time recording it (I always do it around Christmas) and so happy to have heard from you. Sending love right back at you and Linda--happy holidays to you both!

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!
Wonderful work, Michael. And you have chosen one of the more secular yuletide songs, which I can relate to. I am a bah, humbug type of guy in relation to Xmas, the religious elements, at least. I hope your hand sorts itself out completely. Have a great holiday season. Take care, Peter.

Greetings Peter!
Well for me, Christmastime is more of a "feeling" than anything else perhaps, but yes, I get saturated with the commercialism foisted upon us, but I tend to look the other way. Thanks so much for joining me here and you take great care now, Michael

Winter wonderful
I have my own Xmas playlist for iPod usage at this time of the year, to block out all the awful 'Christmas Number Ones' that are pumping out in every store wherever you go shopping. Each to their own of course, but personally, they drive me batty.

Anyway, this one shall be added to the playlist, so I thank you!

Maybe I shall ask my lovely sister to send some Raki vibes across the Atlantic to help with the healing process. [She does that sort of thing] I'm not sure they can stretch that far, but I hope your hand will return to normal soon anyway.

Cheers to you!

Thanks so very much Dave!
Well, yanno, they start the Christmas "retail season" about 6 hours after Halloween and one is bound to have paroxysms of the most unspeakable nature when they hear "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" by the time Christmas is actually near! You are too kind! And thanks so much for the vibe offer--I could use that! We think the problem stems from how I sleep--if I could only keep that arm extended while I snooze, I think it might do the trick! You take care now and wishing you the best! Michael

Whew! Okay now Macjams feels like Macjams again!
It's just not the same when you're not here, especially at X-mas time! This is a showcase for your talent! Love it!!!!! First time I've felt the x-mas spirit this year! Awesome Michael! Jd.

...I think hearing from you no doubt gave me the energy to record something again; I greatly appreciated your concern and kindness. Much obliged for your encouraging review--and wishing you and and those you love the very best this season and beyond! Take care now, Michael

Thank you sir!
For some reason, I have a hard time singing most of the Christmas songs, but this one works better for me I guess (and it's not really a Christmas song!) You are too kind--great hearing from you and wishing you the best in the new year ahead! Michael

Thank you Cees!
You are so generous! Oh the hand--we think it may have something to do with the position I sleep in, as that's the arm I bend under me at night--I'm sleeping with a towel wrapped around the arm to keep it from bending and so far, so good! Great hearing from you and my personal best to you and yours this holiday season. Take good care now! Michael

All the best in the year to come Michael
hope you find improvement with that Ulnar nerve issue. Got the same thing along with the broken shoulder affair.
You sound great here - as always.
The theater work sounds wonderful. I'm sure you're a natural and they should be thrilled to have you.

michaeljayklein said 1007 days ago (December 23rd, 2014)
Thanks so very much Bud!
Yup, that's the deal all right, that sneaky ulnar nerve. Most people have said I have a lot of nerve, so I should be okay before too long! I do hope your particular issues with that problem are greatly better now! Yeah, I guess I'm okay as an "actor", although (believe this or not), I'm learning how to project my speaking voice--with the singing, it's like I have an entirely different voice, so no problems there thank the stars! But talking, I tend to be very soft spoken and even mumble quite a bit--I'll learn! Thanks again--and best wishes to you this season and for the new year ahead! Michael

Wonderful recording and performance. And good for you being a life-long learner. Good luck in the theatre. I'm sure you'll break both legs. I'm thinking your vocal teacher will probably learn from you as well. He's lucky to have such a talented student.

Thanks Andrew!
Oh, lots of the time, I just clean up or make coffee, etc, but I get my "quality" moments there. I might play the stagehand in "La Cage Au Folles" this coming spring if only because the guy who's playing it rarely shows up (nobody gets paid on these productions, it's all for experience). Like yourself, I'd find life rather dull if I weren't constantly learning new things; I think that's a big part of life itself really. Greatly appreciated hearing from you Andrew and wishing you and yours the merriest this year! Michael

Much obliged Bill!
One thing rewarding about coming back to a song you've recorded a year earlier is you find, sometimes without really noticing, that those parts that gave you the hardest time suddenly came out much more easily! Of course, the thing is to improve upon improvement I guess. You know, this tune was written on one of the hottest August days in the history of Los Angeles! You're too kind and I much appreciated hearing from you! Take good care and season's greetings and best wishes to you and yours this year! Michael

Neck of some sort
" in my neck of some sort. "..and I quote ...if this is the object between the bottom of your head and the top of the back betwen your shoulders ...it is in fact ..your neck....not a neck "of some sort " but in fact your neck ....the head mount, the throat support,the bit that stops the noggin from floppin'....Now having rudelaay and somewhat brusquelaay stepped back in to MacJams I'd better sod off and listen to your song ...be right back ....


Okay so first off ...it was an Elk skeleton 'kay .....? but the rest ..ahh it was great...

Merry Christmas......

Chris...
Maybe it's just me, but it always appears in your comments that you are sodding off somewhere--it's that "somewhere" part that intrigues me. For instance, just where is the best place to sod off to if one is game for a good sodding? Also, if I were to sod off someplace, do I have to sod back or can I cheat a little on the return trip? I've no doubt you'll have a perfectly fine explanation to that question! Thanks again mate--cheers and happy holidays and more to you and yours this year! Michael

Not too late...
It's a winter song... not a Christmas song!

I just saw your song here and had to listen. This is such a classic tune. And you deliver the goods, Michael. You were born a generation too late I'm afraid. You would have been a frequent guest on all those celeb variety shows from the 50's and 60's. Oh well, you're a not only a frequent entertainer here at MJ but also one of our top celebrities. Keep 'em coming, dude... And a happy new year to you.
