Everything was so crazy! Everyone going out of town! Buying gifts for their families! Making elaborate plans! How in the world were we to get one more episode of “The Original Gentlemen” in the can in amongst all this craziness??

Easy. By bringing in the time-honored LEOG tradition of having an all-questions episode.(that’s what you do when you didn’t have time to plan out a normal show)

So that’s what Beau, Chris and Martin did: an entire show dedicated to answering fan questions, pointedly towards that (second) most wonderful of all the holidays: Christmas!

But don’t worry, some things are the same as always….we drank a LOT of beer.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.

      Yup.

  • Raymond Payne

    My favorite Xmas movie is Scrooged with Bill Murray, but no one else I knew liked it for some reason. Did any of you like Scrooged?

    My favorite gift as a kid was the 12″ Bionic Man with his repair station.

    • Chris Cox

      Who doesn’t like “Scrooged”?

      • Raymond Payne

        None of the people I hung around with at the time liked it believe it or not. Crazy huh?

        • Chris Cox

          Bizarre. I assume they all grew up to be serial killers.

          • Raymond Payne

            Heh, not that extreme. They are assholes though and they’re the same people who thought Ghostbusters was boring…so maybe their opinions shouldn’t matter. 🙂

          • Beau

            Guess this is a bad time to bring up that, just as I was leaving, I thought to myself “Oh yeah, I should’ve brought up how much I didn’t like “Scrooged”. Oh Well.”?

          • Beau

            And then of course I went and serial killed a bunch of people.

          • Chris Cox

            Yes, well, ‘hookers’. You keep insisting that’s not the same thing as ‘people’.

    • adamcharles

      Well, if nothing else we certainly settled one thing on the ITL Christmas Movie Bracket….SCROOGED wins more debates than HAROLD AND KUMAR 3D CHRISTMAS. That’s certainly something.

  • Joedcomp

    Personally, I think a highly underrated holiday film is Staoshi Kon’s animated film “Tokyo Godfathers”, I only fish they did a dub for it, so more people would be willing to watch it.

    Over Rated, yeah, “Elf” is pretty over rated. Fun for a bit, but tiring real quick.

    • Chris Cox

      Tokyo Godfathers is an amazing film, to be sure.

      • Joedcomp

        Indeed.

  • phillipkslick

    For new Doctor Who honestly I say start with Matt Smith if you don’t want to have to watch a lot to stay caught up. Also, although there are great episodes in series 1-4 it’s very inconsistent, there’s maybe all together 10-12 out of 50 something that are truly great tv and the rest are either so-so or embarrassingly bad. Admittedly, Matt Smith first series (series 5) is uneven but series 6 is great throughout (except for Curse of the Black Spot). Series 7 takes a nose dive though, sadly.

    • Postman257

      i would make the suggestion of a good place to start would be last years Christmas special “snowman” it gives you in idea of whats going on the latest you could jump on is Matt smiths final trilogy as the doctor “the name of the doctor”, “the day of the doctor” and “the time of the doctor”

  • FriendsAndSedatives

    Which Jack Frost? The movie where Michael Keaton turns into a snowman,
    or the B-grade horror movie about a killer snowman in which Shannon
    Elizabeth shows her tits?

  • Maciek

    I wish more episdes would be like this one 🙂

  • A new OG. It’s a miracle, and it ain’t even Chri …. OMG …. It’s a Christmas miracle !!!!

  • Ric John Manalastas

    Hey guys, sorry about the way I typed that comment on Facebook. Congrats Chris, along with Brian, you got my name on the first try. Merry Christmas OneOfUs!!!

  • William Robert Ryan

    be careful guys. now that spills down one of you might become Nigel dungen’s new korey.

    • Rock-X

      I never understood Nigel’s method for sending his gifts nor his rational. He’s spending what would amount to hundreds of US dollars for things that would be considered gag gifts (with the exception of those d*ck shaped chocolates) for something that Korey says he didn’t say: something about Spill.Con tickets, but its heresay from the old podcast stuff. Last time I heard about him before this past week, he was out of a job and I ‘so’ want to go up to his face & say “You see, pal. All that money you’ve spent buying & shipping those gifts to Korey could’ve been in your account, but NOOO, you went out of your way to force Korey to admit he’s something that true only in your head by sending him stuff that homo-centric in nature. Now you’re out of a job, you have no income coming in and now whatever it was you were so focused on getting is gone forever now that Spill.com is no more.”

  • IrishSpartan

    Merry Christmas OG and to all of One of Us!!!

  • gambolingman

    PENULTIMATE!

    Also, Merry Christmas and I hope the entire crew at OneOfUs and (Previous Spill Crew) have a fantastic Holiday!

  • Scaredycrow

    Thanks for answering my question. Love the frost queen idea, could totally see that in the context of the madness we’ve had this season.

  • Brash Smith

    YESS JINGLE ALL THE WAY as the guilty pleasure pick.

  • Neil Kelly

    I’m a little late listening to this because…. I haven’t really been online since Christmas Eve. 😛 But it was a lot of fun to listen to, great to hear you answering some questions. And to all the crew on OneofUs, I hope you all had a great Christmas. 🙂

  • B. Alex Thompson

    Funny that my childhood regarding Santa was very similar to Martin’s. But I appreciated the honesty and enjoyed picking out my own Christmas gifts.

  • Cat O’Malley

    Okay, I’ve gotta clear something up here about my statement about fake trees vs. real trees.

    I said that any time saved in getting a fake tree over a real tree would be negated by the time it takes to get the fake tree out of storage, put it together, and adjust its branches to make it look like it hasn’t been stuffed in a box all year. I DIDN’T say that if you’re not getting a real tree, you might as well not have one at all. Last year, I broke down and got a fake tree (because having a tree in Austin, where it takes a lot to truck them in, and to keep them alive once they get here), and it was in the process of setting up said tree that I made the post. 😛

  • Stu Nankivell

    Cool conversation about Christmas songs – I have to admit John Lennon’s ‘Happy Christmas’ song just bums me out. Maybe because its been used for World Vision ads and depressing end of year news montages – its the definitive ‘family members and friends won’t be joining us for the rest of their lives’ tune, as Chris eluded to around 1:10:54
