Show notes - Episode 123: Let's Get Together and Speed to Some Holidays

Hi, friends! Today's post will be a bit longer than usual, because we're going to include the full Hall of Fame ballot - along with all of the other stuff we did. Let's do it!

I'm always glad to learn things, youse guyses. During recording, I learned that I do in fact know a guy who knows a guy who has a nut allergy. Good luck with that! And steer clear of my desk!

The question this week about your holidays brought some wonderful results, and I hope to get the ideas to the right people who can do the stuff! Can we make the no electronics rule apply to other occasions?

NFL Conference Championships

Jacksonville Jaguars at New England Patriots

Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles

A pair of new movies to go see this week, plus a few things you can buy from your couch! Woo stuff!

The Midnight Man

Mom and Dad

Now on DVD: Blade Runner 2049

New on Nintendo 3DS: Kirby's Battle Royale

As for what's on my stream: Boy Meets World (Jack and Angela arrived!), Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee (learning stuff!), and I'm gonna start The Wire [again] fairly soon!

Our tune this week comes from fellow dudes from Philadelphia, SPiN. I know it's not current, but I'm all about making things relevant to me. Check out all of their tunes on Bandcamp! Thanks, dudes!
