It’s a GMODT Christmas miracle! Or that’s what my Lax All Stars editors said when I actually showed up for work today. Christmas is right around the corner and I’ve opened up my sack-o-goodies to give you a little dose of holiday cheer. We’ll start with a Micheal Keaton abomination and end with a new GMODT tradition.
Jack Frost is a charming movie about a father who abandons his son to pursue a music career then tragically dies in a freak snow storm. His son then plays a magical gold harmonica that he got from his dad before he died and by playing the instrument his dad is resurrected as a freakishly large and mobile snowman. I saw this movie in theaters sadly and the highlight of that experience was seeing the poster with the tag line “He’s the snow-man!”. My guess is Micheal Keaton wishes he could have this one back.
Conan gets to the bottom of the greatest Christmas movie of all time with the biggest movie star in the world. “Jingle All the Way!”
There have been thousands of covers, but none can match the original. From the cheesy synths to George Micheal and the Other Guy singing about broken hearts while hanging out in what looks to be a Christmas post card, you just can’t go wrong with “Last Christmas”.
Run-DMC + Retro Blazers Jacket = Awesome. Best Christmas rap single ever?
Merry X-mas and Happy New Year to everyone in GMODT-nation.
