I hope that you are having an unambiguously merry Christmas. Or a hopi Schneikel, or a gurd Nachtouph, or whatever they have where you are. I hope that whatever phenomenon best epitomizes your native winterfest is in plentiful supply.
The Illithid continues to Steal him some Lolthmas, as can be plainly seen. I’m still coming to terms with the fact that Gabriel (of all people) suggested we do a Seuss parody that takes place in the Underdark. Oh, I’ll take it. Hell yes. I’m no dummy. But sometimes, not every day, but often, I do wonder where this greasy Doppelganger of his might have hidden the corpse.
Today marks the inaugural episode of Blamimations, the first of many shows we hope will make their home on PATV. Almost painfully aware of their hybrid genius, we are continually forcing Scott Kurtz and Kris Straub into proximity with one another and then stoking them, as coals are stoked, in order to release their heat. Please to enjoy, and don’t forget that next week will see the debut of The 4th Panel, which is a cross between our regular show and the podcasts of old. Friday is pretty much the day, for now, and each time it arrives we may be relied upon to dilute your anguish.
If you’ve got access to Netflix over whatever passes for holiday leisure time, even if it’s a couple hours with your laptop in bed, I can’t recommend the movie “Let The Right One In” enough. It is beyond incredible to me that you can watch this movie essentially for nothing, as part of your normal service, which is to say you should be doing this immediately. It’s from last year apparently, but I completely missed it, and I have a very real fear that you may have missed it also. This a story with a core of such intense vulnerability that I responded entirely without my defenses, which are considerable. I guess I should make it clear that this is actually a horror movie, entirely in Swedish. There is a lot of snow in the film, though, so that makes it a Christmas movie. Right?
