A Very Special Paranormal View Christmas edition
The show started off with the End of the World sketch, which lasted a few minutes, so we were able to relax. Henry had not realized he could get sound effects right online, so there weren't any; he'd asked me to do some vocally static-hiss at certain points, and as we went on the air I muted my mic and completely forgot I'd done so, so my hissing went unheard.
We discussed toys of the 1960s-70s and 80s and such. Kat did a fifteen question Christmas Quiz with us, at which we pretty much sucked.
Before the second break, we discussed Krampus (Kat providing some information of which she'd researched,), and the Yule Cat, its poem story (the translation of which turns it into what becomes free-verse), I read aloud via one of my appearances on one of Marla's show's Yule editions.
After the break, during which Henry played a holiday promo so old it mentioned numerous long-since-gone show hosts, Barbara reported our having listeners in the US, Canada and Mexico.
We then discussed various Christmas-y and holiday movies, and a bit of TV: I had already pointed out the hilariously bad Mexican Santa Claus movie, which had been well-riffed as Mystery Science Theatre 3000 (MST3K), episode 521, not to be confused with Santa Claus Conquers the Martians which MST3K also took on in episode 321; Henry leaned towards National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, the 1947 Miracle on 34th Street and Home Alone. I posited that the best combination Christmas-set film as well as best rom-com being London-based Love Actually. Also mentioned were White Christmas, Scrooged and Scrooge as well as the proper A Christmas Carol version with Alistair Sim. Kat and I shared our mutual dislike of the sterile 2006 A Christmas Story; in my case my having seen the far superior well-made PBS adaptations of storyteller Jean Shepherd's stories, specifically The Phantom of the Open Hearth. Henry pointed out A Homecoming, the TV movie which introduced The Waltons, plus the Tim Allen's The Santa Clause franchise and Tim Burton's awesome Nightmare Before Christmas. We mentioned animated films and TV specials, such as Polar Express, which I'd not seen and Kat concurred my suspicions it not being up to its promotional hype. I pointed out the Abed stop-motion homage Community episode 211 Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas, the classic A Charlie Brown Christmas, Kenneth Branagh's Peter's Friends the little known Disney's One Magic Christmas (one of Henry's top favourites), and Holiday Inn; we couldn't go without mentioning the proper, original It's a Wonderful Life, the original How the Grinch Stole Christmas and even The Muppet Christmas Carol. We also discussed varied Christmas feast food/s.
Tonight we had listeners from the US, UK, Canada and Belgium.
In the Skype chat, Kat pointed out an article of celebrants over the conclusion of the 5125-year cycle in the Mayan calendar.
Early in the show, Henry pointed out the next week we would have Tarot Readings by both Marla Brooks and Barbara.
I provided the show's various page locations (my site's Paranormal View hub page, the show's official site, that we're findable on Facebook, et al); Kat gave out her website, we wished our loyal and new listeners happy holiday wishes, and we were wrapped.
