It’s an Alvis Day miracle to have another yearly Christmas Special ready to go! So this year Jonn and Dustin talk about another miracle of an anime that we never thought would be fansubbed, but it came to fruition. This year we review Penguin’s Memory.
(0:00 – 35:15) Alvis Day Review: Penguins Memory – This is an anime that has been mentioned on this podcast in the past many times, but it was only a matter of time before certain fansubbers finally got around to making this anime to the anime fandom public. It’s like the movie The Deer Hunter, but with penguins, only it’s not really The Deer Hunter. Penguins Memory is a unique film based off the premise off Suntory Beer ads mixed in with the common ethos of 1980’s Vietnam War movies at the time. It’s truly a film that anime fans need to check out eventually. Along with both hosts staying on topic for once, there is the off topic discussions of how CW superhero shows are trash, the passing of Hiromi Tsuru and other anime featuring animals fighting in wars.
(35:15 – 1:39:35) Closing Remarks – Typical banter follows this segment with Chris Chan latest stupidity on video and stuff about Ghost from TCR. Included is how Dustin has finally graduated university (since he’s been in school since three podcasts ago), the failings of Roy Moore, the US soldier that defected to North Korea died recently, how dumb people Master thesis’s can be, Thor 3 and Justice League discussion, upcoming movies in 2018, the Disney/Fox merger and a whole lot more. Stay tuned for the greatest religious story ever told by Captain Murphy in the zinger.
OP – Left my buddies flippers in a rice patty in the Delta War long ago…
ED – Only the singing of children can calm the heart of a war vet…
This show has:
This is NOT a kids movie…
Happy Alvis Day Everyone!!
Your pet rabbit is really a hardened killer…
He’s gonna make you feel alright!

So for this years Thanksgiving special, we’ll talk about something we haven’t focused on in years, and that is an entire episode dedicated to video games. So join Dustin, Jonn and Josh to talk about Vidjer Gamez!
(0:00 – 01:26:10) Thanksgaming Special – This is a discussion mostly of what the podcast has been playing in our spare times when were not doing podcasts. Jonn and Josh talk extensively about the Nintendo Switch, Mario Odyssey and Zelda Breath of the Wild. Josh mentions the new Sonic Forces and Mania games, and Dustin goes into Gundam Versus, Final Fantasy X, Friday the 13th: The Game, and Windjammers. Of course other topics arise like Star Wars games, EA being the worst lottery company in the world (followed by how long it would take to unlock their crap), Final Fantasy collections that might not come out, and some banter about how Dustin never talked about the con he went to nor anything about the SNES Classic.
(01:26:10 – 1:51:35) Closing Remarks: Chris Chan spreads his Hyperdimensional Waifutunia autism across the state of Virgina for a week, The death of Charles “NotMarilyn” Manson and Della Reese, Political Sexual Misconduct talk, and much more!
OP – Nintendo should smell its doom, it’s (never) gonna go 3rd party so soon…
ED – I just found whatever Marilyn Manson song to go at the end of this…
This show has:
Man, did EA eff up or what…
Well, looks who’s back!
