"Asthmatic Kitty is proud to announce..."
Sufjan Stevens Christmas

It's Christmas time again! That means tightly bundled scarves, lively debates on the merits of real/plastic trees, a litany of Christmas television specials, and finding the perfect retro Christmas wrapping paper.

And gifts of course! Who could forget the gifts!

That's why Sufjan Stevens is busy working on a very special gift right now, for a very special person. And in the spirit of Christmas, that person will give Sufjan a similarly special gift.

Here's how it works: write an original Christmas song, record it, and email the song to us. Asthmatic Kitty will pick a winner, and that person will trade rights to their song for rights to Sufjan's song.

Just like a gift exhange, Sufjan's song becomes your song. You can hoard it for yourself, sell it to a major soft drink corporation, use it in your daughter's first Christmas video, or share it for free on your website. No one except Sufjan and you will hear his song, unless you decide otherwise. You get the song and all legal rights to it. We get the same rights to your song.

By submitting your song, you also give us permission to stream it online.

It's hard to believe that this is the fourth year in a row that I've posted about Sufjan's Christmas music.

Sufjan Stevens just performed the "BQE" for three nights at BAM.

Mr. Stevens looks unhappy in the photo, just like most infidels at Christmas. He must submit to Allah and Muhammad!

Now you listen here Osama, Sufjan loves all the children, even you. Please be kind in this season of peace and good will.

Houses are not cheap and not everybody is able to buy it. However, credit loans was invented to aid people in such situations.
