One of my all time favorite movies, The Nightmare Before Christmas 

Classic Mickey Mouse!

Tim Burtons ' Edward Scissorhands '

Rudolph-they never let the poor guy play in any reindeer games! 

I believe this is from Disney-not quite sure which movie

So nice to see it, yet not have to get cold!

The Grinch! We all know one!

Classic gold lighted tree, I think Martha Stewart would approve 


Let's see, probably the spring!


I love this cat! So much more fun than Grumpy Cat!

One can always dream

Magical, reminds me of Seattle 

Who can forget this holiday classic?! 

They just don't make villains like they used to

Watch Vaudeville Etiquette Perform At Seattle's Great Wheel for the New Waterfront Festival

Seattle stays classy for an end of summer festival on the waterfront to show support for local businesses who will likely suffer while construction is being done for the next two years. The finale and highlight was the very first synchronized light show, set to the the music of Vaudeville Etiquette. Now this just happens to be one of Xanaland's very favorite Seattle bands, so needless to say, we were delighted to get this amazing video of the event. Enjoy -- and remember, there are some historic stores that have long given Seattle its charm on the waterfront, not to mention the best blues bar in Seattle, Highway 99 Blues Club, right across from The Great Wheel. So be sure to show your support throughout this tough season of construction on the seawall.

Update For News Blog on Xanaland!

Hey friends and followers on Xanaland. As you may have noticed some of the blogs have not been worked on for a while.
The good news is that it's because we're too busy filming, live streaming and in general having fun in our amazing local music and artist community of Seattle!
Currently the Xanaland blog 'main page' has turned out to be the best place to direct all our traffic and it's also easier to find on one Facebook page:
We would love for this blog to continue to engage our community with fun local news from the Northwest Region with just a bit of worldwide music, art, entertainment and media news. With this in mind all the live stream notices, local interviews and important or super interesting articles get immediate attention!
So alas, until we're able to hire more monkeys to manage all the pages/blogs, We have decided to use this for sort of a "from around the web" page/blog. So if you don't like to be directed to other sites, this may not be the page for you!
I will try my hardest to keep it free from sites that favor Kim Kardashian stories and more directed to Rolling Stone online and other respected art/music/etc sites. Input and comments are welcome -- especially if you're getting directed to an unpleasant place!

333 lots of love to you all!

and thanks for shopping and subscribing on Xanaland.

We would ask you kindly to read our Mission Statement to see why you should subscribe, shop and buy Pacific Northwest Grunge paraphernalia, concert tickets, and trend setting goods on Xanaland.

Watch The Thrown Epps with Mark Arm Tonight Via Free Live Stream!

I just hope he can forgive me for not having my eyebrows on last time I saw him at the post office! I mean really, it's right in the "Grunge Rule Book" that Xana is to remain forever looking like "'90s Xana."  Sheesh what a slacker I am, tisk tisk. I sure hope streaming this and filming it for our little grunge time capsule here will make up for my makeup failures! Join us tonight at The Central Tavern for what's sure to be a fun show -- it's free and it's a dark drizzly day -- what better time to head into downtown Seattle and watch Mark Arm jump around and scream a little?! I would like to thank John Leighton Beezer from The Thrown Ups, Jeffrey Smith of Mr. Epp, and Lilith Kemnitz of The Central Tavern for coming together and bringing this joyous reunion to fruition. Also on stage tonight is Joe Smitty, Ed Fotheringham, Scott Schickler, Michael Falhauber, plus special guests!
