War Rocket Ajax #187: The Fifth Annual War On Christmas Special

Just Gimme One Dance With Ash!

You may have noticed that I’ve been slacking off on posting my annual musical advent calendar, and I have a reason for that. Today, it is time once again for the fifth annual War Rocket Ajax War On Christmas Special, and in what might be the most harrowing idea we have ever done, Matt and I are joined by Matt Fraction and Maggie Serota in an attempt to create The Worst Christmas Mixtape Ever!

Each of us picked five tracks, and as we sip eggnog and roast chestnuts, we move from the least offensive to the absolutely soul-scarring, from a sleepy “Santa Baby” to “Christmas With A Dalek” all the way to asking “Where’s The Line To See Jesus?” Our only rule was that we couldn’t use anything from Psychopathic Records, but other than that, no holds were barred, and it got pretty ugly. Plus, Trip Fantastic‘s Jason Baxter and a special guest of his own join us for what I think is our very first cooking segment, where we offer up a recipe for eggnog!

The Movie Fighters Holiday Specials!


It’s Movie Fighters time, friends, and this week we’ve got a present for you from me and Matt! Not only do we have our second Christmas selection, but all of our holiday specials are in one convenient bundle for only four bucks! If you haven’t already snagged ’em, you can grab both Halloween episodes and both Christmas episodes, and you’re set for any holiday travel you may be doing — assuming that said travel lasts for about six hours or less.

You may also notice that there are no Thanksgiving episodes involved, and that is because Thanksgiving is a straight up garbage holiday. But you do get…

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters: Who knew that a movie about Hawkeye having magic diabetes could be so fun? We certainly weren’t expecting it.

Monster Squad: Our most requested “horror” movie offering is slightly more flawed than you might remember it, if only for its ludicrous proposition that Dracula could be felled by mere children.

Santa Claus: The Movie: From the producers of Superman, Superman II and, uh, Supergirl comes an origin story for Santa that suddenly turns into a movie about an elf who makes magic candy and bad puns. We have never been this disappointed before.

Santa’s Slay: By listener request, we take on this holiday farce starring Bill Goldberg as a murderous Santa Claus who, as the son of Satan, goes on a vengeful rampage through Canada on Christmas Day 2005. This is, believe it or not, maybe the best movie we have done on the show.

And as an added bonus…

Rambo: The Force of Freedom: When S.A.V.A.G.E. Stole Santa: We watch the Christmas episode of the ’80s cartoon for kids based on the Rambo movies, which I will remind you are about a traumatized Vietnam veteran just murdering people for hours. It is so confusing that talk about it for ever (IE about an hour).

The bonus episode is streaming for free, but you get it as part of the album. Check it out, and remember, you can give these things as gifts. Perfect for someone who hates movies and wants their biases confirmed.
