‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was writing a description for this episode as a parody of “‘Twas The Night Before Christmas’” so just shut the Hell up.
In this episode, Luke tells us about going to see the hilarious stand-up comedy of Chris Hardwick of Nerdist show fame, Luke has some new Caricature stand stories, and Carrie tells us about some of her favorite Christmas music.
In this episode, Luke tells us all about his & Sara’s vacation to Universal Studios and Disney World as Luke continues to nerd out and celebrate that Walt Disney Animation Studios had their biggest opening weekend for a film ever, making the long awaited “Wreck-It Ralph” #1 at the box office!
Due to busyness and babyness, there wasn’t any real show prep for this episode recorded over the span of 3 days in the past week, so please forgive our rambling, Alex-sound-effect-laiden unpreparedness.
It’s our shortest episode in a very long time, at just 1 hour and 20 minutes! Why so short? Because in 3 days we’re posting another SPECIAL episode (remember the Transformers & Muppets specials?) which is likely going to be very LOOONG. Also, our lives are going to be so busy in the coming few weeks, that we might not get a chance to record another episode until after the election. So we wanted to make sure we could squeeze in at least one more regular episode while we had the chance, so we could do our usual segments like News of the Stupid, and play some spooky music for Halloween by Grant Baciocco, TV’s Kyle, Insane Clown Posse, and an ‘Odd New Wave’ classic by Rockwell. Also, Luke recaps Archon, and Carrie tells the scary tale of “The Baby That Wouldn’t Stop Growing!” It crawls! It sprouts teeth! It sits up on it’s own! Run while you still can!!!
In this episode, Luke Ski finally gives his promised shout-outs to everyone to donated to his Kickstarter, which happens about 4 and a half minutes into the show.
Carrie recounts her recent trip to Michigan and reads a list of Alex’s many nicknames, and Luke tells us a lurid tale of intrigue and criminal behavior from his youth that he’s never told anyone before.
This episode breaks our previously not kept track of record for the most number of separate days that segments were recorded for it, that being 4.
In this installment of Bad Rapport… Luke continues to experiment with the Zoom H2 recorder… Carrie & Luke review “Rock Of Ages”… Bad Rapport crosses-over with the Scope‘s coverage of ConVergence 2012 (check their latest episode to hear it from their recorder)… Carrie talks about her favorite sugary breakfast cereals…
Also News of the Stupid, and cameo appearances by Jared Ringold, Shane Palmersheim, Sara Trice, Josh Rasey, and Alex the ever-present. Music this episode by Taco, Murray Head, Golden Earring, Thomas Dolby, Timbuk 3, & Falco. Why? Because shut up, that’s why.
At the very end, check out the new FuMPcast ID by Phil Proctor & David Ossman of Firesign Theatre, pictured here with Luke in his Radio Now eyeball hat. Weirdly cool!
