Title: Creeping Christmas, Yule Goats and Phony Facts!
Run Time: 22 min 34 secs
Host: Luke Rodgers
Panelists: Oktober, Major Monocle, Nabbit
Topic: Christmas Creep!
- Nabbit noted that Christmas Creep really doesn’t creep in anymore…It’s more like a Christmas Ninja, you turn around and…BAM!… It’s there.
- One of the first big parodies about this was in 1974 with “It’s The Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown!”
- For Oktober it’s more about Christmas tunes showing up in August or September. Or the Christmas/Holiday/Yule decorations going up before trick or treat.
- Oktober educates people on the Yule Goat.
- Nabbit puts together the genesis of The Nightmare Before Christmas so succinctly that there is no possible doubt as to how the movie came about.
- Major Monocle’s house is already decorated. (He swears it’s his wife’s doing) It moves from Fall to Christmas in a flash.
Game: True Thing or Phony Fact
- In 2014 Weird Al Yankovic’s album “Mandatory Fun” broke a 50 year record. It was the first comedy album in that time to be #1 on the Billboard Charts.
