Scramble, scramble, scramble… Happy Holly-Daze! I hope you’re enjoying whatever flavor of winter feasts and festivities you happen to celebrate. In my house, we have traditions that last pretty much all December and through the New Year. Some of which are related to nom, nom, nom, noms. (I’ll make every attempt to share pictures when I get a chance. Knee-deep in cinnamon and flour and edible flowers and meat purses and bleach and beads and tape and stamps… Yeah, you get the idea.
Anyhoo, while every Who down in Whoville may be enjoying the finer presents of a merry sort… I’ve got a surprise for YOU. Well, it’s a touch on the bloody side, but… Um… You are talking to a writer who’s joyest joy of joys this year was to pick up The Twelve Terrors Of Christmas…

For today’s post, I thought I’d share with you some of the music I’ve been listening to. I used to listen to industrial music a lot more than I do now, but the majority of my music is mood-related and specifically geared for writing like a crazy woman. (Note: my collection is sorely lacking in a particular area. Namely, UK bands. Oh, iTunes!!)
To share my love (or pain?), I put together a playlist of twelve songs for you from my collection. There’s over three hundred songs in my playlist here at Monica Central — most of which come from a few really awesome soundtracks. I mean, who wouldn’t want to wake up to Mortal Kombat?
