Mondo Diablo Episode 336: Santagasm

December 23, 2011

Well, that’s Christmas. It’s a good thing you guys got this last podcast of the season, ‘cos I got three freakin’ pies to bake today. And I’m a tired monkey, thanks to these kidneys. Hell, I should make a kidney pie. For the record, I’m making a Maple syrup pie, a Salmon Pie and a Tourtière for Réveillon. There will be crab, since we’re here in the Pacific Northwest, also smoked shellfish of many kinds. But essentially it’s a Swedish/Québécois Christmas in the Randall house. Drop me a line about your Christmas, please. I love hearing from you guys.

Mondo Diablo Episode 334: A Christmas History Timeline

December 10, 2011

This week I read a list of solstice and Christmas events in history, starting with the Newgrange around 2500 BCE: this is apparently not that far from Noah’s Flood, which was in 2304 BC, according to Ken Ham. Considering Stonehenge was supposed to have started around 2800 BCE and added to for another thousand years is quite curious indeed. Seems that Noah’s immediate family must have made their way there quickly and found it intact, so they immediately adopted or redesigned Druidic customs. Meanwhile, a couple more of the Noah family hurried to assume the Xia dynasty in China. They must have gotten to work on making babies rather quickly! It’s a good thing they brought the pandas with them.

Welcome to an all-new Secular Solstice Season 2011! This year has come to a great start, since I did not have to work on Black Friday! How much better could it be? The clips for this show come from an old article in LA weekly by Jeffrey Vallance.
