It’s story telling time again as I recall a classic tale of an office Christmas party from years ago. All of it true, to the best of my recollection. Also the “Elf on the Shelf” gets treated like a mob witness, revealing my Dad’s true nature; a new feature called CHILL THE $&#* OUT!; and another round of audio vault exposes an overexposed Ron Burgundy. Get on it, bitches, it’s podcast time.
It’s the one year anniversary of my job loss, and the whole thing seems like a bad Harry Chapin song to me now. A quick Mandela tribute; St. Nicholas Day in the Netherlands has to be tough to explain to kids; The worst Christmas song ever; and can we cut Carrie Underwood some slack, please? I mean she sang “The Lonely Goatherd” on her belly!! All that and the Yodeling Elf on yet another god-awful Jojo Show!!
I have a new Christmas classic, and I’m surprised it’s not up there with “Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer already. Also — have you ever lost your car? People in the Southeast are a little TOO serious about college football, the Amazon drones are not a new idea, and here’s an angle on it you haven’t heard anywhere else, and I think I need to write the book on social network etiquette, can you help me? All on today’s Jojo Show.
I’m grateful for everything that has come my way in the past year. It wasn’t fun, but I learned a lot about myself. Also — Kids explain Thanksgiving; “The Hay’s In The Barn”; Dudes who take longer to get ready than their girlfriends; I don’t hate Adam Sandler’s “Thanksgiving Song”, I just want it to go away.
MUSIC: Pogues “Fairytale of New York”
Jojo recalls the JFK assassination TV coverage (it seemed everyone was smoking to calm themselves); Jojo has two new songs that may surprise you; Another episode of Audio Vault; Nickelback sells millions of albums, but does anyone know their names?; and The Jojo Show takes another step toward world domination.
Jojo has found an animated version of a childhood book that has haunted his dreams for fifty years, I will warn you now, it ain’t pretty; George Bailey is returning to the big screen in a totally unnecessary sequel; Jojo puts notorious mayor Rob Ford and Alec Baldwin to the list test; a question of faith in a big court case in Philly; and one more taste of Janeane Garafolo. Wait, that didn’t sound right did it?
MUSIC: The Call — “And The Walls Came Down”
Jojo reviews the movie “12 Years A Slave” and finds something interesting about hate; in honor of Veteran’s Day, from the Jojo Files we have an interview with Joe Mazzello, who played Sledge in the HBO series, “The Pacific”; a classic wake up call where “Tom Brokaw” starts a new tradition, waking up NBC show cast members; and more Janeane Garafolo. Let’s get started…
