No Armstrong this week but Lex and Moltz talk about snow, skiing and air travel. Moltz blew his buffer and couldn't remember the name of Whistler. Despite Moltz's belief that they're falling out of the sky left and right, air travel was extraordinarily safe in 2017. Support for this episode comes from Health IQ.

Lex made a candy bar and was forced to dress up (https://www.instagram.com/p/BdDpbBqHsu7/?taken-by=lexfri) ridiculously for the privilege. He then tortured one of his children on this ride: https://www.instagram.com/p/BdGKVuEnFFH/?taken-by=lexfri As if that wasn't enough, he got handsy with Reeses Peanut Butter Cup (https://www.instagram.com/p/BdGOgZGHOmu/?taken-by=lexfri) and a jar of chocolate syrup (https://www.instagram.com/p/BdGYF1fH13T/?taken-by=lexfri).

195: Have a Nice Xmas

12/22/2017

Jon and Moltz have enjoyed a little move called Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Moltz recommends the holiday song Fairytale of New York even though it has a slur in it. Lex is partial to Wonderful Christmastime. One of Jon's favorites is Darlene Love's version of Christmas (Baby Please Come). Liam makes a plea for a podcast explaining Christian holidays. The Santa Clause trilogy (yes, it's apparently a trilogy) is actually pretty dark. Someone is going to be enjoying the Sphero R2-D2 this...

Moltz recalls the old ads for Raceway Park. Please pick up some fine Fireball products at Target. Lots of people suffer from stage fright. Only one has thrown up in Moltz's driveway. If you wanted to buy any of us a Mac Pro as a holiday gift we probably wouldn't say no. Lex's kids play Prodigy which is not this Prodigy. James Bridle details some real problems with kid videos on YouTube. Our thanks to CanvasPeople.com, a really easy to use Photo-to-Canvas service that takes your...

Moltz is hoping to get a Tacoma Rainiers hat for Christmas. Talking to your kids about Matt Lauer. We discuss Slater-Kinney and Carrie Brownstein. The Day After was not exactly the feel-good hit of the summer back in 1983. Zombieland is also apocalyptic but decidedly more fun. We hear good things about Coco. Sad to hear that John Lasseter is also a predator. Things in the world a pretty bad but the Avengers: Infinity War trailer is great. Our thanks to Fathead, makers of durable...

191: Who Needs Oral Hygiene When You’re Dead

11/25/2017

Jon makes a reference to the seminal movie Conan the Barbarian. Secret Hitler could be a good game for your kids. Or, perhaps, the great taste of Prongles if you can find some. Lex's daughter is reading some Judy Blume books. Jon's kids wanted to watch Annie but couldn't. Lex recommends Wonder if you want to bawl your eyes out. The Logan doll does not come with retractable claws. Moltz never finished his story about watching Nurse Betty on a plane but his point was there's a grizzly...

Moltz is sadly not on this episode. Jon saw Thor and says kids 8 and will love it. There is some hilarious talk about Thor's relationship to his hammer, Mjölnir. The younger kids will not get the reference, but their parents will. Lex voted. His wife and children supported his right to vote. Lex and Jon talk a bit about iPhone X's camera and Lex shares a scary selfie. Lex's resemblance to Jeff Goldblum is discussed. Our thanks also to Sleep Number, the best sleep of your life.

Liam is adorable and somehow Lex still manages to not eat his face. Here's part of Jon's Halloween costume. Here's Lex as the Spartan cheerleader.

Deathwatch may not sound like a book for kids but it won the Edgar Award for Best Juvenile Mystery. The movie Race With The Devil is probably not for the kids. Also not for the kids is Conan playing Grand Theft Auto. Cabel Sasser's Buggy Saint's Row. Good luck getting the image of Lex and his wife as the Spartan Cheerleaders out of your head. Jon's going to be a mod for Halloween, a la Quadrophenia. Moltz recalls Mischief Night. Lex wrote about Hurricane Sandy for The Magazine. Our...

Sending good vibes to Florida. Stay safe during the coming storm. In Moltz's neck of the woods, it's fire that's the problem. Probably a good time to learn how to plan for a disaster. Jon saw Dunkirk and The Big Sick and liked both. Moltz recommends The Museum of Flight if you're in the Seattle area.
