Episode LXXXI: Emmet Otter's Podcast Christmas

Welcome back to The Deucecast. This week it's Mike & Shawn. Dave had an appointment to get his back hair waxed.

We tie up our Christmas episodes with a conversation about our favorite Christmas TV Specials including Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas, Mickey's Christmas Carol, and Shawn's personal favorite A Garfield Christmas. We also make sure to mention all the Rankin Bass nonsense to respect what certainly would be Dr. Earl's wishes.

Mike does his final Christmas Music Minute of 2012 by playing some crowd pleasing "Weird Al" tunes like "Christmas At Ground Zero" and "The Night Santa Went Crazy."

During the show Mike reflicks "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" and the abomination that was Dave's Netflix assignment "Holiday in Handcuffs." Shawn also reflicks and gushes over the latest Denzel movie "Flight."

Last but not certainly not least Conan O'Brien brings you a special Star Wars message.

Join us next week for our special year in review episode where we'll hopefully celebrate the Mayans being wrong.

DeuceGiving 2012

Because, in the South, anything done two years in a row makes a tradition.... we at The Deucecast are proud of our annual tradition of giving thanks in a special episode called DeuceGiving... and we call it DeuceGiving 2012, not just DeuceGiving '12... because in 100 years, we don't want this year's DeuceGiving to be confused with DeuceGiving 2112, right?  Right.

Before we get to the DeuceGiving of it all, we dish on such topics as... Mikey's daughter turning 2... the crazy weekend of college football and Steak N Shake...

Mike's Crappy Music rolls on, discussing cover songs of classic hits by Michael Jackson... Oasis... INXSand.. Leonard Cohen (!). 

Of course, what would our annual DeuceGiving be without our thanks to... and tacos... and Max's Deli... and The Avengers, plus more fantastic, heartfelt appreciations. 

A rousing discussion on the difference in David Keith and Keith David...
