PODCAST: December 22nd, 2011 - The Xmas Bonus!

[DOWNLOAD this episode (128k mp3)]

Normally, there would not have been an episode this week, but as I recalled last year's "Out ov the Coffin 39 and 1/2 foot Xmas Special," and how much fun that was, it seemed a shame to let it fall into obscurity; however, I didn't want to upload a pure re-run. So, I took that show, chopped it up, kept the best parts, added some new ones, and reworked the whole thing as a new special for this year: "The Out ov the Coffin Xmas Bonus 2011!"

Now, for those that have never heard an "Out ov the Coffin" Xmas Special, I should warn you that this is not at all a typical episode. In fact, it's a complete oddball, framing the Christmas season in a mixture of holiday horror, warped nostalgia, and absolute silliness. It's still done from a goth perspective, of corpse, but this would be the episode in which my sense of humor does most of the driving, and the references become a bit... abstract. What can I say? Christmas is for children, so I'm going to act like one, haha. Having said that: You have been warned...

Featured on this bonus podcast, you will hear a brand new Christmas song from The Cruxshadows, who provide two of the only serious moments in the whole show. Their brand new, 2011 Christmas single, "Anmi's Christmas (Red, Green, Silver & Gold)," is available as a free, or pay-what-you-feel, download right here, along with last year's faithful version of "O Holy Night," both of which are featured on this episode.

And, appearing online just in the St. Nick of time to be included on this podcast, is the new Venture Bros. holiday single. This time, Doc and Jackson present us with their rendition of the classic "Baby, It's Cold Outside," filtered through the characters of The Mighty Monarch and Dr. Mrs. The Monarch. The result is called "Baby It's Cold In Here," and I think it's my favorite holiday song since 2008's "Wonderful Christmastime." The download is available right here. You can also grab the rest of their free Christmas singles (going all the way back to 2004) right here.

Also featured on this show: Loads of warped Christmas classics, from such disparate sources as Oscar the Grouch, King Diamond, Batman, Voltaire, The Grinch, The Ramones, The Cryptkeeper, Count von Count, and many, many more. It's a strange one, folks -- and unlike previous holiday specials, it's UNCENSORED, too! So, put a little something extra in your eggnog, and check out what SantaBod brought you this year...

Not into this episode's theme? No problem. STAY TUNED: The December 29th episode will feature "The Best ov 2011," a cross-section of songs from the best releases to have been featured on the show this year!
