Flopcast 294: Extra Nog
It's a quick show this holiday week, so you'll have plenty of time to dedicate to avoiding your family. But in the spirit of the season, we play a round of Figgy Pudding Pages, and discuss if kids prefer cool electronic games or weird hair appliances for Christmas. Also: A Flopcast correspondent reports live from Florida with a very festive Chickens in the News update. Plus: More 90s fun with MTV's The Real World, Elvis Costello, and Crash Test Dummies. Now it's time to pop in that DVD of Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey and relax. Pass the nog, please.
Kornflake remembers the 1994 season of The Real World. Felicity watched it as well, but for her it was only the beginning of a multi-year obsession.
Kevin recalls the reunion of Elvis Costello with the Attractions for the Brutal Youth album and tour.
The Figgy Pudding Pages opened up a rather sore subject, taunting Kornflake with the remembrance of her brother's Nintendo Game Boy, which she coveted.
A very special "Chickens in the News" holiday greeting came to us from Ed! Florida's Chicken Church was first mentioned in Flopcast 052.
