and more….

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Australia.

  • That’s where I am from.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Nobody moves from Australia to Austria. It’s too weird.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Clothes are the worst. When I was a little kid I got what I THOUGHT was a box of Old Dutch chips but inside were shirts. I cried.

  • You really like chips!

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    I must have been hungry.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Oh come on IAB It’s a Wonderful Life is great. I bet you hate Field of Dreams too! And dogs and children!

  • I’m a grumpy bastard, I know

  • Dogs I can handle

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    I’m not sure how crazy I am about kids either to tell the truth. I like the idea of them. I like when they’re outside playing.

  • But not on my lawn. Get off my lawn…

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Does anyone else have trouble with these things always crashing? I usually have to restart a podcast at least once.

  • No 🙁

  • What device are you listening with?

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Just my PC. I opened the podcast in a new window though so maybe that will help.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Well that’s good, at least you know it’s just me then and not your fault!

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Good job Puck. Good ol’ Dr Seuss.

  • Those pesky canadian internet connections

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    The lines freeze.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    I love the Long Kiss Goodnight!

    Gonna put my keys in my left pocket du nuh nuh nuh.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    But then you go and say Iron Man 3.

  • I really dig that accent

  • It’s my fave Marvel movie…

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    He doesn’t have a very heavy Newfie accent at all.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Jeeze.

  • Cap2 and this are the only ones that feel like “movies”.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Batman Returns is great.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Cap 2 I’m with you.

  • Yay!

  • And he made this the day after office christmas party

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Did he drink all the egg nog and then take photocopies of his taint?

  • You gotta ask him that, lol

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    I’ll assume yes.

  • Dee, this editing is crazy good. Have you slept at all?

  • It really is. And the euro one liners.just fly

  • Gotta push the quality!

  • I’m Frank n Ernest w women

  • Nick can sing.

  • 1.5 billion …

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    There’s that Christmas spirit!

  • He’s a talented mfer

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    IAB you can go real high and you can go real low!

  • “Meow”, lol

  • Audacity is a cool toy

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    I have that but I’ve never used it.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    I love egg nog.

  • It’s pretty easy to use, I’ve noticed.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Good to hear. I haven’t had any reason so far so it’s just sitting there.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    I never think of egg nog as alcoholic, I’ve always drank it straight out of the carton. And that has no rum.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    I don’t know if I’ve ever seen the Muppet Christmas now that I think about it. I must have but for some reason I’m not sure.

  • It better be a good god damn reason!

  • It locked up?

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    I hate new muppets.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Yes. It’s happened I think every single time. Usually towards the end.

  • Looking into it. What’s your browser?

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Chrome.

  • Okay thanks Willard.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Although I’m currently listening in a new window and I think that might do the trick. I always have 10 tabs open and I think I’ve always noticed the glitch when I jump to another tab.

  • Chrome has been getting worse and worse for me as well sucking down resources.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    I might switch but I have it synced over two computers, two tablets, and a phone. Google owns me.

  • I feel your pain.

  • I can’t wait to listen to this tomorrow morning.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Amazing Sinterklaas sketch!

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Who the fuck doesn’t like cookies?

  • It’ll be a Bopx-mas miracle.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    I will eat all the cookies.

  • You want quality skits, you get the SUK guys

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    That’s Nick singing? He’s really good. Almost too good.

  • Just not so much that you toss ’em

  • Don’t worry. He’s no threat to you!

  • Him and his brother do this awesome version of The Little Drummer Boy too. Bowie/Bing Crosby in style.

  • Bourbon. It’s time to step into manhood.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Nick has a fantastic vocal instrument. I love his Al Jolson.

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    I love me some Buffalo Trace.

  • Yeah. I didn’t hear this before. It’s fuckin awesome

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    Nice show. Be excellent to each other!

  • Party on, dude

  • His range is crazy. Rap, Latin, Soul, hard rock… Yeah, fuck him and his talent!

  • A Willard Runs Through It

    I think I hate him.

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    Shucks…

  • If I’m just talking with family/friends or whatever it’s more pronounced, but if I’m reading or trying to sound professional it mostly disappears. Got used to phasing it out back when I worked in a call center for about 5 years talking exclusively to Americans.

  • Same, downloading now so it’s ready to go!

  • Funny thing is, I don’t remember half the stuff I’ve said usually, so it’s always something of a surprise

  • Paint fumes.

  • HAHAH! That’s gotta be it

  • dee really out did himself this time

  • that may be the best quality thing this site has on it. of course, until the boogie nights trailer debuts

  • dee hates that , but i love it

  • you guys got the demon for howling 2 ?

  • i said it before its a good action movie. just not a good iron man movie.

  • you were on. so was razz. you guys were funny as hell. razz to ass 4 life

  • Mr Nick Nightly
  • in a way i like this more than the halloween one. either way its another great job by the detective. and i cant wait for dees heart breaking v day special

  • Tim something

    Be sure to drink your Ovaltine.

  • Tim something

    IAB on helium. UNEXPECTED!

  • I might do a whole show like that one day. It’s all post production though

  • Tim something

    Egg Nog is great BUT there’s a lot of bad stuff out there. The best recipes use vanilla to cut that thickness.

  • Tim something

    Why do we always come here? I guess we’ll never know. It’s like a kind of torture to have to watch this show.

  • I love eggnog. Love it. And eggnog lattes too. Love them. And I love Iron Man 3.

  • Man, I want that sound clip of IAB saying “You gotta be fucking kidding me” to be used at random spots in future BOPX episodes.

  • Dee, you need to hear Nick and his brother doing “Little Drummer Boy!”

  • Hah! I can record that for Dee to use

  • Great show. Really awesome. Not just saying that because SUK was in it either!

  • You guys delivered some awesome bits

  • And Nick needs to get his ass to American Idol, stat

  • But it did not hurt!

  • Mr Nick Nightly

  • Poor happy.

  • Time to rave bitches!

  • America DEFINITELY makes the most Christmas movies. Fucking Lifetime seems to have a new one every week.

  • Christmas with the Kranks is fucking awful and shameful. The novel it’s based on is pretty good though.

  • As for demonized Santa Claus movies, I reviewed the Dutch version of a “more evil” Sinterklaas film last year, Sint.

    http://talkbacker.com/posts/movies/retro/sint-review-a-less-racist-more-evil-dutch-santa/id=18663

  • Yay me! Yay the Grinch!

  • Yay wind effects!

  • Yay fireplace effects!

  • I could have done a better job with Cindy Lou’s voice. Oh well.

  • Sick bell ringing!

  • Batman Returns FTW!!!

  • I recommend Rocky IV!! OH YEAH!!

  • Another Christmas movie I love is The Ref. Dennis Leary, Kevin Spacey, and Judy Davis. Excellent, underrated gem IMO.

  • I remember that. Rented it on VHS back in the day. It was very good.

  • Fuck egg nog.

  • Pretty sure I still have the VHS I think. I have about 50 or so VHS tapes I haven’t gotten rid of and most of them I’m never gotten around to buying the DVD or Blu-ray yet.

  • Oh my. Rose talking about The Muppet Christmas Carol is wonderful.

  • Yes, I love that “It’s the American/British way” part too!

  • The South Park Christmas specials are always fucking awesome.

  • THE BATTLE OF THE CENTURY!!

  • Those fucking officers.

  • Yeah that was great

  • COOOOOOKIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • You haven’t had good gingerbread cookies then probably.

  • Nick’s got the soul.

  • MERRY BOPXMAS

  • P.S. get Bop as a guest.

  • That was a great song. There’s another one a few comments downwards

  • I think Nick could do even Inuit throat singing, if he chose to… 😀

  • Neuromancer

    This is the best podcast ever. Seriously you guys capture the magic of TB and then some. This is just what it is as far as I’m concerned. Have not listened to any Supernaughts yet though.

  • Neuromancer

    Lots of good Christmas movies. The Santa Clause with Tim Allen is actually a good movie Dee. I think even Ebert acknowledged its greatness.

  • Neuromancer

    Nope I was wrong. I thought he gave it 3 stars, it only 2.5. http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/the-santa-clause-1994

  • Thank you!

  • To you as well!

  • I plan to.

  • Listening to this now. At an airport. I hate airports…..

  • Do they know its christmas time ??

  • I would agree they should write a new song, but the original from 1984 is good i think.

  • Heathens!

  • The lyrics are awful and the melody is played to death. It lost its impact.
