Welcome to the Corporate Casket, a semiweekly series where bad businesses go to die. We will discuss any and everything from bad charities, terrible CEOs, and businesses that have a lot to hide.
We all know Jerry Springer as the television show where anything goes: guests attack one another and the drama is ramped up to a thousand. But this isn’t what Jerry Springer always used to be. So how did controversial and thoughtful debates turn into screaming matches? Is this what Jerry Springer wanted, and is it as bad as it looks?
There are so many films about Christmas that aren’t on everyone’s seasonal rotation. Here are some picks for an alternative Christmas movie list that shake up the usual holiday fare. Perhaps you shouldn’t watch them with your family.
This is the last video episode before we close this season. So we take a new direction with STAR WARS Explained, talking about the Season Finale of “Andor”. And this is perfect!
Okay maybe not perfect, but damn near close! The season finale of “Andor” was incredible. The way this series has built up and released tension over episodes, arcs, and now the entire season has been masterful. Rix Road was just a nonstop stream of fantastic scenes, one after another. Nemik’s manifesto, Maarva’s speech, and the chaos it caused…Andor stuck the landing with ease, and I can’t wait for season two!

In the US Fraggle Rock ran for 5 seasons on HBO from 1983 to 1987.
After the end of The Muppet Show, Jim Henson had some very lofty expectations for Fraggle Rock.
Big Christmas video time! Let’s talk about the origins of some festive traditions and consider the stupid question posed by Answers In Genesis: “Is Christmas Pagan?”. Merry crimble (:
Notes from Emma Thorn: “Turns out I was taking for granted the notion that Pope Julius decreed the official Christmas celebration to be December 25th! This claim comes only from a letter quoted in a 9th Century source and is therefore pretty spurious. The more you know :)”
Hold it – what’s with the new name? No more “Toy Galaxy”? It’s “Secret Galaxy” now? Well, okay then… Let’s talk about DuckTales. DuckTales is an animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation. The original cartoon series premiered on syndication and on Disney Channel on September 18, 1987 and ran for a total of 100 episodes while also helping to create The Disney Afternoon block. Ducktales follows Scrooge McDuck, his three grandnephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and close friends of the group, on various adventures.
But Ducktales was far from a sure thing when it debuted as nothing like it had been attempted and the fallout from it helped to create Fox Kids in a fight that would last more than a decade.
Have we forgotten something? Well, it’s the year 2022… the year the movie “Soylent Green” takes place. Let’s Minty take a look at this movie, based on the book “Make Room! Make Room!” This book is a 1966 science fiction novel written by Harry Harrison exploring the consequences of both unchecked population growth on society and the hoarding of resources by a wealthy minority. It was originally serialized in Impulse magazine.
Set in a future August 1999, the novel explores trends in the proportion of world resources used by the United States and other countries compared to population growth, depicting a world where the global population is seven billion people, plagued with overcrowding, resource shortages and a crumbling infrastructure. The plot jumps from character to character, recounting the lives of people in various walks of life in New York City, population 35 million.
The novel was the basis of the 1973 science fiction movie Soylent Green, although the film changed much of the plot and theme and introduced cannibalism as a solution to feeding people.
Christmas is around the corner and beloved children stories are told once more. Stories we inherit from our parents. But to some of these stories there’s a dark side. Some of these stories subconsciously try to get children to accept certain circumstances for granted rather than to question them.
An adult engaged in writing a book for children may well intend to present a life-affirming vision that communicates cultural values and traditions, but at the same time that adult may consciously or unconsciously induce, even seduce, the child to accept and repeat the neurotic discontents of culture and civilization.

Willy Wonka is such a beloved children’s fiction character. But is he actually as sweet as he appears? Or is there a bitter darkness that lurks beneath his sugary surface?
This is a video from münecat. She’s looking into all the hype surrounding Web3, blockchain technology, NFTs, and trying to work out WHY this is all happening. The Folding Ideas video ‘Line Goes Up’ came out as she was researching this, and she found that even though they had come to the same conclusion on many aspects of this, she actually came to a different conclusion as to why she think this is all happening – and it’s much more dystopian than most people think. Definetely worth a look.
Soon it will be Christmas and we want to tell a now old story again, perhaps to finally end it. The title of this story:
The Downfall Of Channel Awesome
Yes, it may seem strange, but let’s revisit this awkward story. Let’s try to understand it. And then we let it go. The end of a very chaotic year 2022 – 12022 in the human era – with a flashback to a very chaotic ending.
And then we look ahead!
