Show Notes

It's still Christmas here on Shelf Life! We're only 5 days late! This time we're talking all about a little Christmas toy movie called LIFE-SIZE 2 which may or may not have the subtitle "A Christmas Eve." This movie poses the question, What if a Mattel-type company decided to cancel a Barbie-type doll in favor of something called "video game apps," causing the doll turn human in an attempt to save her own wretched life? Also, a spoiled millenial learns a valuable life lesson or something, and baby boomer writers teach us what they think it means to be woke. Then, we exchange toys in possibly the saddest gift exchange ever captured on microphone. ~Music credits~ -Shelf Life holiday theme song - More of That (moreofthat.bandcamp.com) -Decorated (Yeah It's Christmas Time) - Redwood -Be A Star 2 - Tyra Banks feat. New Fear's Eve
