Episode 17 - For Frodo and Others

On this week's episode, I wish you happy holidays--with Hanukkah and Christmas getting most of the attention--and talk about some of the things I love about the holidays. Then we talk about wrestling for a long time. Then I talk about new music from Willie Nelson and Mastodon--those are two separate albums, but now that I see it, I'd really like to hear that. I also talk about my favorite two Christmas albums by Aimee Mann and Dave Brubeck, respectively. And in a "long time coming" move, I talk about my love of the Lord of the Rings franchise and my memories revolving around those movies and the holiday season over the past several years.

Here's the player:

This is also the cover photo in the player. I just like it.
Here are the four different packagings of the LOTR flicks that I mentioned. For what it's worth, I only have one copy of each of the Hobbit flicks.
Here's the music discussed.
And because I mentioned him, here's my buddy, Stuffed Willie Nelson.
