    It's mostly shopping centers that play this Christmas music for the month of December. It's mostly, if not entirely, adults who are shopping this time of year. So why are we all forced to listen to Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman? This is kid's music. It's bizarre to make everyone listen to music made for children for an entire month. It's like making us listen to Barney the Dinosaur every June.

    Everyone plays Xmas music now so that its all just muzac and blends into the background noise. In the Columbus Circle "mall" they have machines mounted on the ceilings that make snow flurries indoors.

    In the spirit of Christmas...I would've kicked that guy's ass in. :jj:

    Kidding aside, if the people had a permit or were granted permission to sing there, if you've got a problem with it, take it to the management.

    If they don't have permission, file a complaint with the police department. But he really doesn't have a right to just walk up to them and start menacing them (although I do see the counterpoint that the ubiquitous cacophony of these songs can drive someone crazy).

    Don't like it? Wear an iPod.

    Geez, just because one guy was singing a little flat......

    Now, if he could infiltrate a drum circle like that, he'd be on to something.

    It seems sort of contrived to me. WHy would anyone waste their time filming a bunch of carolers at a mall?

    What an a**h**e! Threatening people who obviously have the right to be there, destroying equipment and props, saying he is going to come back with a shotgun if they don't leave. I wish I was there so I could kick him in the teeth!
