First a word from our sponsor- don’t fast forward! I like these guys. The people behind Busted Tees made a t-shirt site called Tee public. I set up a “Store” of shirts I thought you’d dig. Plus can access all their shirts through my page go to  ProudlyResents.com/shirts.

They are funny tee shirts that are actually funny. Right now I put up movie related
christmas shirts. The Room, Star Wars, Breaking Bad and other themed shirts. I have the Room one, it’s pretty awesome. They are having sales all  the  time, but shirts normally fun about $20, which is a decent price. Great, product, great price, I feel good about plugging these guys. So go to proudlyresents.com/shirts or or main page and click the banner.

As you can tell from my voice, which is more nasal than usual, I’m sick! So I’d listen to the whole show at 1.25 speed. I sound normal that way.

For the holidays, I collected different movie reviews for each denomination. As you know there’s a war on christmas!

Growing up in public school, we were told that because of “the chanukah people,” and not the separation of Church and State, we couldn’t just sing Christmas carols in class. We had to sing chanukah carols. You know all those famous chanukah carols. Like Dreidel,dreidel…

In the spirit of that music teacher who must be dead by
now, we have a screen-shot-2016-11-25-at-11-11-24-pmdiverse show. We have my brother Mike  Spiegelman ripping apart 8 crazy nights, Jimmy pardo, todd levin and Sharon houston talking “Kirk cameron’s saving christmas.

First, to be politically correct, we celebrate Life day. Here’s a review from a very early episode that’s not on itunes anymore. It’s me, obs, actor Matt Swanson and writer FM Demarco.  

FM speaks first –


That was the live “Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas“ episode i did with jimmy pardo, todd levin and sharon houston. It’s a great movie – well not really a movie. Find links to full episode,
  on itunes and where ever else you listen to poscast, or for all the many christmas themed episodes and blogs go to Proudlyresents.com/ch. There’s reviews of Christmas with the kranks, Santa clause the movie and much more.

If you want to watch the Star Wars Christmas Special and read an oral history of the special go to  proudly resents .com 

Here’s a christmasy song from friend of the show Rob Paravonian’s new CD “A-B “. you can get it on itunes and cd baby or go to Robprocks.com. Also check out “Baby in a bar.” another great tune.

Then it’s Sherilyn’s ( ) review of “it’s a wonderful life.”

I’ve been doing this podcast for a long time, maybe 6 years. Recently, since having a baby, it’s been tougher to put out episodes. Every time I’m about to quit, I get a little glimmer of hope to keep going. There’s a company that will edit my shows, cutting down on production, I might have a cool tie in soon and I got my first legit sponscreen-shot-2016-11-25-at-9-26-54-pmsor.

Not exactly. Just one I believe in and buy from. So go to Proudlyresents.com/shirts to get great christmas shirts and fu
nny funny shirts.
You have to wear shirts, so why not be interesting about it.


A programming note, Sherilyn and Mike talk about bad movie night at the dark room.  Well, the thing is, neither is still around. So you’re SOL. But Mike has a great podcast that’s like a bad movie night called “Let’s watch a movie together on Youtube.” or go to Prouldlyresents.com/lets. There’s going to be a cool showing of two bad Christmas movies December 4th in LA. Send me an email if you want information. Reachadam@mac.com.

If you havlet_it_out_davey_by_stereoset95-da9hiuf-1e a favorite bad christmas movie, send it to me at Reachadam@mac.com. A pro tip, turn on lifetime or hallmark channel right now and there should be a terrible xmas film on right now. It’s the reason for the season!

Also thanks to Marc Herson from the Succotash Soundcast podcast for inspiring this format. I should have a couple more Christmas shows coming up including Jack Frost.

Leave us a review on itunes, screenshot it – send it to me. I’ll randomly pick someone and send a copy of Tommy and the cool mule or some other bad movie! Or just leave a review or rating.

If this is your first time listening, welcome and check out older episodes. If you’ve been around awhile, thanks for hanging in there. I appreciate you. Means a slot.
