The Night before Christmas — Mac-style…

Reading a Christmas TaleInternet Archive: Details: Twas the Night Before Christmas:

The Crippled Macintosh Rehabilitation Clinic is known the world over for its talented yet challenged hardware. Here we hear the vocal stylings of an ensemble of powerbooks, the Crippled Macintosh Rehabilitation Choir, reading a classic Christmas tale.

Admittedly, I didn’t listen to the whole thing, but I know how it ends.  Available on (which seems to be back, to my Twitter followers), is non other than the Crippled Macintosh Rehabilitation Choir.  I just wanted to type that again.  It’s all the available Macintosh voices (in 1994) arranged and edited together (before Garageband) to tell the delightful Clement Clark Moore tale.

It’s available here as a straightforward MP3 file, but you can also download it in a variety of other ways from the Archive page.  Best enjoyed with chestnuts roasting.
