Normally, I have this witty, excited over the top 25 Days of Christmas pitch ready to go. But this year is different. Instead of being excited about the holiday season and the feeling that comes from being around the ones you love, there is just a feeling of emptiness. I am not sure when that feeling will go away for all of us.
Every day seems to be a struggle. I sit and wait for my wife to come home after working her clinic shift, and this year I always feel that pit in my stomach. And for a lot of you, you are feeling your own stressful situation in ways of dealing with COVID-19. We have no idea what the long-term effects of this virus will be for the individuals who were in the fight for their life. Some of you are grieving the loss of a loved one, that you didn’t have a chance to say goodbye.
And that is where my feelings begin. Because, logging on to social media and seeing people who passed remedial English with just enough, tell me that the virus is a hoax. That it was created in lab to stop Trump from winning the presidential election. I am guessing tomorrow one of these dipshits will post on Parler that COVID was on the grassy knoll the day that Kennedy was assassinated.
I am not sure about anyone else, but those statements will eventually weigh on the mind. Somedays, I feel the weight tipping in a direction in which my hand will pierce a slightly thick sheet of dry wall.
So, why talk about this, because as god as my witness, we are going to try to give something that can make you smile over the next 25 days. We are going to try to make this 25 Days of Christmas be the biggest and the most insane we have ever accomplished. And by the time we are done, we hope just one of you reading, listening, watching, or even thinking WTF, will smile. It is our mission for this 2020 holiday season to bring you something like we have never done before. Is it going to be easy? Fuck no. Because the world outside our doors are a giant dumpster fire. That is not going to stop us from doing something for you.
So, what do we have on tap for the 25 Days of Christmas in 2020?
First, episodes of all your favorite podcasts with some holiday cheer. Leading up to what will be the most epic episode of TBK LIVE EVER. The Christmas Day Dumpster Fire Drunk Show. That is right, we are doing the second DRUNK SHOW. And this time we are saying fuck you the year that was, and doing what we do best, be random as hell. And episodes of Striking A Chord with Manda, watching some terrible Christmas movies with us on CineCrap as well as High School Musical, Borderline Problematic will bring you both sides of the holiday coin. (I am not sure what those two will do, So, that is the best I can do.)
And if that is not enough, A couple of brand-new episodes of VIDEO KILLED THE INTERNET STAR.
And as for written content, Dan will be back, Make Up Reviews just in time for the holiday season, A ranking of Christmas Little Debbie Treats, The Hall, Lists, Reviews, Retrospectives, An all-new Christmas themed TBK Investigates that might blow your mind, Letters to Santa, and more.
And of Course, The 2020 Christmas Story. And the title is…. going to be revealed soon.
We promise we are going to go out of our way to entertain you, make you think, and hopefully help you escape the world for a minute or two.
