It's that time of year! It's (part one of) our annual "Brammies and Chammies" awards! The TENTH installment of the most coveted awards in the world!

#394 - A Look Back At 2018

We recap 2018 in a week by week review of what we created and what we experienced. From the heights of Warped Tour to the depths of thinking my brother died, it's all in there. We close with a heartbreaking talk about friendships and relationships and how they degrade over time, and how we respond to those things in more positive ways.

#393 - Christmas Celebrations, A December Wedding, and Our Live Christmas Show

A rare Sunday release for us! Chuck and I catch up on the last few weeks of our lives. We talk about assorted Christmas celebrations and how we felt this year, spirit-wise. We talk about going to Virginia for the wedding of our dear friend (and onetime podcast guest) Katy and try to figure out why traveling causes me so much stress. I briefly mention the film Sorry To Bother You, Chuck talks about watching the movie Birdbox. We close with a recap of the comedy show we did a few weeks ago at the Comedy Connection in East Providence and how we felt about the night and what we learned from it.

#392 - Is "Die Hard" a Christmas Movie?

Lou Perella joins us this week for a fun look at a fun movie. Apparently some people don't believe Die Hard is a Christmas movie, so we say we're going to record a commentary track for the movie that proves it is. It is (delightfully) our flimsiest premise yet, as we don't do a lot of commenting on the movie, and instead discuss what makes something a Christmas movie, the meaning of Christmas spirit, and how much fun it is to do impressions of Alan Rickman. It's a fun conversation over one of our favorite films!

#391 - Us The Duo, Gift Ideas, and the Avengers: Endgame Trailer

We start with a long aside about Chuck having to return a gift that I was a part of for him a few years ago. I find old emails about the scenario and laughs are had. We plug our upcoming comedy show and Chuck tells me about his appearance on another podcast and we question whether he came across as a dick. We then talk about dating relationships and how they are complicated in 2018. We talk about the Avengers 4 trailer, then Chuck tells me about the new Us The Duo Christmas special on Amazon Prime. After that, we discuss gift-giving philosophies and tips for this time of year. We close with a discussion about the NVIDIA Shield and how well it works for old video game emulation.

#390 - Entitled Fans, Pop-Punk Christmas Albums, and the NVIDIA Shield

We start with Chuck bragging about the soups a friend dropped off just before the show. Somehow this leads to us discussing food expiration dates, which I promise you is more interesting than it looks in this description. We talk about MxPx's Christmas re-release (and new track), as well as Jon Feldman's hinting of a Goldfinger Christmas EP. From there, we talk about entitled fans and what leads people to act like...well...jerks. Chuck tells me about his search for a new video game emulation device and tells me about the decision he made. We close with an extended plug for our upcoming Christmas show!
