humbug to christmas


A new Owl City song is a good enough gift.

matt helders ‘last christmas’ masterpost

which brings us to part 3! a year later and matt gets to do a christmas song with his bois :)))) a chronological masterpost of matt’s performances of ‘last christmas’ during ‘fluorescent adolescent’ :-)

1) 10th december 2009 - terminal 5 in NYC
aka an angel descends on the stage and casually sits on his lil platform to bless us
(and from a slightly different angle, includes beginning though!)

2) 11th december 2009 - terminal 5 (again) in NYC
aka the angel acquires a stool from which to better serenade us. also, “this year, here in NYC… i’ll give it to someone special.”
(and from a slightly different angle)

3) 13th december 2009 - house of blues in boston
aka the angel is growing accustomed to mortal comforts and requests more furniture. and also wine.
(and from the stands)

4) 14th december 2009 - métropolis in montréal
aka the angel is like lmao fuck earth but what the hey, lemme take yall on one last ride. also, this one brought to you by that fuckin razr that so unfortunately pops in from time to time
(and from the stands - but higher quality audio!)

 22nd january 2009 matt talks about taking only one pair of joggers on tour )

My favouite lines of “Humbug”

aka Adam’s dorkiness

  • “Or does she already own way too many scarves”
  • Yeah, how ‘bout I jump out the window?
    Singing 'Joy to the World’ face down in the snow!
  • I’ll wrap myself in paper and sit under the tree
    'Cause the best gift I can give you is this heart inside of me! 
  • I wander around the store again and again
    But all I do is shrug
  • (Huh. I hate shopping) 

ngl i squealed because he’s such a cutie
