As I read the front page of The Huffington Post, I noticed the headline "All I Want For Christmas Is a Job" is the same title as a song I wrote with the brilliant musician/composer/singer Gary Stockdale, with whom I wrote the musical BUKOWSICAL! a few years back. "All I Want For Christmas Is a Job" was done last year and is still relevant and sad and all sorts of other lamentable adjectives. The video for the song was directed by Michael Franks, edited by David Avallone, and features a cast of several. That's Gary singing, his daughter Savannah on guitar, and daughter Fiona monologuing. Share it with someone going through economic woes, i.e. possibly anyone you know.
