The boys are going Dutch this episode and exploring Christmas in the land of tulips, windmills, and hole-y dykes.  Grab your wooden shoes, we are heading to the Netherlands for St. Nicholas Day!   We also examine a surprisingly dated film from 2007, Alles is Liefde, and discuss whether the same film could be made today.  It is another example of the subgenre we call the “Love Actually Knockoffs” with several characters, many stories at once, and intersecting storylines brought together by the holiday spirit.  The film is funny and has all of the necessary feel-good elements – including a charming prince on a horse – but it also features the controversial assistant of St. Nicholas known as “Zwarte Piet” or “Black Pete”.  This traditional Dutch character is portrayed here in an exaggerated and offensive fashion.  The film even posits the question of whether the Petes exist as the slaves of St. Nicholas, and this concept is played for laughs.  Sadly, this undertone of racism detracts from what is a fun, lighthearted holiday movie, especially if you’re interested in the culture.  And speaking of, we also take a look at some unique Christmas elements, including a novelty song about a dead rabbit, Santa with a butt plug, and a popular festive song that was first popularized by Ernie and Bert on the Dutch Sesame Street, and is sung by one of the actresses in the film.  This episode is truly a delectable gourmetten!

What’s up, dudes? It’s a bonus episode! I’m talking with author, illustrator, teaching artist, cartoonist, and podcaster Jerzy Drozd! It’s all about his ’80s fantasy and horror graphic novel The Inscrutable Dr. Baer and the Case of the Two-Faced Statue!

Doctor Baer, expert in the occult, never once wanted to be an adventurer. But when years of hard work are demolished along with an ancient stone guardian that rendered harmless his collection of dangerous magical objects, he will have to enter the fray at last. And will learn to his dismay that those objects were not at all what he believed!

Spooky mansion? Check. Dangerous quest? Uh huh. Angry chicken wizard? Well, only if he’s accompanied by a cool looking horse! So grab your staff, pack your wisps, and head out on an adventure with this episode all about occult expert Dr. Baer!

 What’s up, dudes? It’s the 250th episode! So, we’ll open up Rad Santa’s Mail Fanny Pack and answer some listener questions! Then special guest Danny Davila and I dive into the Christmas-adjacent movie “Funny Farm!” Starring Chevy Chase and Madolyn Smith, it’s a squirrel out of water story! Er…fish out of water!

Andy and Elizabeth Farmer leave the big city to live in the quaint little town of Red Bud. Andy has aspirations to be a novelist. Misadventures ensue! First, their movers get lost and arrive late. Then the Farmers discover a dead body in their garden. Snakes, runaway dogs, and angry fishing buddies soon after threaten their idyllic dream. Elizabeth writes and publishes a children’s book giving Andy feelings of resentment and failure. Friction between the couple inevitably ensues. When Andy, in a moment of desperation, submits Elizabeth’s manuscript as his own to his publisher, she leaves him. The couple bribe the town to help them sell their house at Christmas time. However, Andy and Elizabeth fall in love with the town and each other when they see how beautiful and friendly the town can actually be.

Ducks? Yep. Kitchen payphones? Got ’em. Lamb fries? Only if a record can be broken! So grab your yellow dog, climb into your runaway mail truck, and listen to this episode on “Funny Farm!”

Hello you beautiful people!

It’s episode 106 and we’re not messing around, we get straight into it with a Marionette Christmas Carol by Puppets by Arlee.  It is what it says it is, a Christmas Carol using marionettes.
It’s only 13 minutes long and you can watch it here:

Next up it’s Do You Hear What I Hear and Bob Baker looks into the word “Knackers”. What does it mean and where is it from?

Then it’s time for The Quiz.  I scored 8 out of 10, beat that.

After that Bob is back with Spread A Smile of Joy, and thanks to our listener Timothy Lewis, we have another way to spread a bit of joy.
Check out Bob’s podcast here:

Then we have the final part of our interview with Adam Parker from Merry Britsmas and we talk some more about Christmas in the UK.  This time we chat about midnight mass, Britsh Christmas music, Santa and other stuff.

Welcome to episode 110 of Holly Jolly X’masu! In this episode, I talk about the children’s book and album, “Superman Santa,” from 1986.

I hope you enjoyed “Superman Santa.” While I would have loved a Casiopeia Christmas album, this was still a lot fun. It has an amusing premise and enjoyable music, and the book really adds to the experience. I’ll post the pictures below.

Join me back here next month for a pair of great episodes. Up first is the 2004 compilation, “Christmas For Anyone?” It has an interesting blend of jazzy tunes and a cover that has to be seen to be believed. Then join me on the 25th for “Christmas Dance Party” by the Tokyo Cuban Boys. It’s a Mood Kayo treasure that’s sure to please everyone.

As always, any feedback on this episode would be appreciated. If have any suggestions, or if you’d like to recommend a song or album for a future episode, drop me a line and let me know.

Remember, I’ve added a button to my Ko-fi page. If you’d like to support me one cup of coffee at a time, a donation is only $3. I’ve also opened a Redbubble store. I only have a couple designs up, but keep an eye on it as I’ll be trying to add more. Half of any proceeds or donations received will be donated to support the people of Ukraine, while the rest will be used to purchase new Japanese Christmas music to review for future episodes. You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And if you get a chance, leave me a review on iTunes. Thanks!

In today’s episode, we enjoy Skenbart or “IIlusive Tracks” a black and white Swedish film set in 1945. It is a comedy, thriller, drama and love story, all wrapped up in one, along with those common elements you expect in a Christmas film – murder, adultery, and violence.  Plus, if you can believe it, it’s really, really funny.  Join the boys are we travel with the hopelessly idealistic Gunnar, a failed author who quit his job to escape on a train for Berlin.  He sees excitement and opportunity and wants to rebuild the city after World War II, but instead leaves chaos in his wake.

On the train leaving from Stockholm is an eccentric crew – a Catholic doctor who wants to kill his wife, a gay man who hates men, a hapless soldier on the wrong train, and some hard-drinking nuns with religious doubts and a motley group of Baltic refugees.  Now this is a holiday party!

Even with the hilarity, Mark and Bob still find time to celebrate a true Swedish Christmas, with an authentic smorgasbord washed down with a couple mugs of Julmust.  They also set a giant straw Yule goat on fire and enjoy their annual viewing of Kalle Anka och hans vänner önskar God Jul, all while waiting for Jultomten to arrive.  To top it off, they swing to the silken tones of the dashing former model and Eurovision winner Måns Zelmerlöw and his 2010 cover of “Tomten, jag vill ha en riktig jul”.  With all this laughter, adventure, and generosity, can it get any more festive, fans?

Seasons Eatings

This dish is found on the tables of many African countries during the holidays, as well as when there’s a large gathering of people for a party or celebration.  While the basic ingredients are the same, there are many different variations depending on where you’re from.  It has been debated so much, there was actually an online Twitter war on which country had the best recipe.  We’re exploring the history and origins of jollof rice.

What’s up, dudes? It’s all about WWF Prime Time Wrestling Christmas 1986, battle royale style with Jeremy Phelps the Alamo City Santa,  CM Chuck from Just Another Friday Night, Joe from Now Watch This, Manny from Feliz Christmas, Merry Navidad, and CJ from Christmas Sessions! We talk Bobby the Brain and Gorilla! We dive into Hogan and Savage! We body slam Junkyard Dog and Harley Race! This episode has it all!

Airing December 23, 1986, the matches begin with Jimmy Jack Funk taking on Blackjack Mulligan, who defeats Funk with little effort. Iron Mike Sharpe batted Special Delivery Jones—no, not S.D. Kluger from “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town! Jones takes Sharpe with an atomic drop. “What a Christmas present for S.D. Jones!”

Meanwhile Bobby and Gorilla argue about presents. Means Gene spoke with Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat and Jesse Ventura interviewed Andre the Giant. Harley Race defeated Pedro Morales and retained his crown. Subsequently, Dick The Rebel Slater stuns Steve Lombardi with a suplex. As well, Dino Bravo beat Corporal Kirchner.

Junkyard Dog rammed Adrian Adonis into a turnbuckle to get out of a sleeper. Both men are tossed out of the ring, but JD gets back in before the count and wins! Finally, World Heavyweight Champion Hulk Hogan collided with the monstrous Hercules Hernandez. Hogan, seemingly in trouble, comes back off the ropes with a leg drop to pin and win!

Stuffed gorilla gifts? Yep. Gold phone presents? Uh huh. Blackjack Mulligan’s wagon of fertilizer?!?! What?!?? So grab your belt, get on the ropes, and backflip to this episode on Prime Time Wrestling Christmas 1986!
