KYD 068 - How the Grinch Stole Christmas
KYD 068 - How the Grinch Stole Christmas
I was going to try and write this blurb in Seussian rhyme, but there's a reason why only Dr. Seuss could do it...that s**t's hard! This week our hosts are joined by a very special guest...their good friend, Christine Chun!  Christine came over to the KYD HQ for a healthy dose of wassail, gift swapping and of course, nostalgia.  Christine requested to watch a childhood favorite of hers and Dan and Chrysten, being in the Christmas spirit, were happy to oblige! How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a cartoon TV special based on the popular Dr. Seuss children's book of the same name.  Originally aired in 1966, it was so popular that it was aired annually at Christmastime and quickly became one of those integral pieces synonymous with the season.  Our crabby protagonist, The Grinch, is hell-bent on preventing Christmas from coming to his annoyingly celebratory neighbors, The Whos.  With his dog, Max, The Grinch crafts an elaborate scheme to steal all of the Christmas cheer from under their noses.  But The Grinch winds up getting more than he bargained for, and learns a very important lesson about the true meaning of Christmas!  Will this perennial favorite make our hosts' hearts grow three sizes?  Join us and find out!  And don't forget to RATE, REVIEW & SUBSCRIBE!  
KYD 067 - Bambi
KYD 067 - Bambi
Over the Thanksgiving holiday, your beloved hosts attempted to watch Bambi, Disney's classic animated tale of adorable animals and murder, with their adorable nephews.  However, the nephews were more interested in banging their plastic toys together and throwing s**t across the room, so the endeavor proved fruitless.  So Dan and Chrysten decided, "F**k it, we'll just watch it ourselves cuz we live for this s**t."  And here we are!   Bambi is the story of a newly born fawn named Bambi, a sweet if not somewhat clumsy lil' fella.  Alongside his woodland friends, Thumper the bunny and Flower the skunk, Bambi and his buddies learn a lot about life, love and friendship in the forest.  This is a film that traumatized many children of the 80s and nearly bankrupted the Disney animation studio of the 40s.  Both of our hosts loved this as kids, but will it cause the emotional scars in them as adults as it did when they were clumsy little fawns themselves?  Join us and find out!  And don't forget to RATE, REVIEW & SUBSCRIBE!
KYD 066 - The Craft
KYD 066 - The Craft
It's the moooost spookiest tiiiime of the yeeear...wait, that makes no grammatical sense.'s Halloween time again, darlings!  And Dan and Chrysten are back with another spooky episode!  True to form, Dan has never seen 90s teen classic The Craft, so naturally, Chrysten is making him sit through it and enjoy it in all of its teen goth glory!  When Sarah (Robin Tunney) moves to a new town, she is befriended by a group of outcast girls (Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell & Rachel True) whose extracurricular activities are witchcraft!  At first it seems like a bunch of harmless tricks, but as the girls become increasingly drunk with power, things start to spiral out of control!  Dan definitely remembers seeing the posters for this movie and thinking with his teenage boy brain that the ladies of The Craft were hot stuff, but will he think the same about the movie?  Join us and find out!  And don't forget to RATE, REVIEW & SUBSCRIBE! * * * * * If you have a few dollars to spare, please consider donating to our Fairy Podfather, Patrick Walsh's fundraiser for New Alternatives drop-in center for LGBTQ homeless youth in New York City:
