And There Was Much Rejoicing In The Land…

Saturday, 18 Conclusion 2013

… for, lo, a holiday tradition is celebrated, as DJ Riko has assembled a wonderful collection of awesome music for the season once more. Go on over to the link, right-click it, and save the mp3 – you’ll be glad you did!

During the Great Internets Website Wipeout of 2013, a lot of archival content from the Funny Farm’s old host site was not brought forward to the new one; as a result much of the archival content you might be able to find at the wayback Machine for the Funny Farm may be hosed eventually, depending on the requirements and generosity of a lot of people out there* – but for now you can still see most of the bloggy goodness that was there for so long. If you had saved some of the content (pics, video links, etc.) you would still be able to access it today.

One of the things that you haven’t been able to find, until now, has been the Xmas Mega Mixxes that were put together by Your Humble Narrator in years gone by. But, now, I’m going to put them back into general consumption once more:
