A shitastic Christmas thanks to getting a nasty cold/flu though that didn't change plans much: watching a whole lot of TV! It's a plethora of great stand-up specials on Netflix, including a new one from the hilarious Todd Barry. A bunch o' movies, including Midnight Cowboy, The Pope of Greenwich Village, and a plea to see one of the best movies of 2017, Mr. Roosevelt. Plus, Twisted F****** Sister! The new movie Downsizing and the evolution of the traditional shopping mall.

An apology for quality & distraction control issues and a call for a co-host! Footloose in 2017: no dancing at The Goat in Portsmouth, NH. Plus Three Billboards in Ebbing, MO and for f**k's sake, enough with dumb men doing dumb things to women!
