Some things just go together this time of year: Santa and cookies, gifts and trees, fruitcake and hard liquor.
Books and music also pair nicely around Christmas. Here is the WWAATD Pairing Guide. Enjoy.
The Dean Martin Christmas Album ranks as one of the booziest holiday celebrations known to man. Fitting, since the ship’s captain was known as one of the booziest men known to man. It sounds like he could forget the lyrics at any moment.
Spin this album with Nich Tosches’ fantastic DINO: Living High in the Dirty Business of Dreams and it all starts to make more sense. Told partially as a straight biography and partially as fictional reenactment, Tosches adds life and sadness to Martin that never ceases to amaze.
