PLUS: Acting without speaking! Has life really improved for mouses? An anachronistic gesture! Did Bob Cratchit replace Kermit's personality? And speak into our ear trumpets, sonny! IMPORTANT NOTE: In this episode, Anthony mentions a now-defunct McDonald's location called "Rock 'n' Roll McDonald's" in Bismarck, North Dakota. Those who are familiar with the Wesley Willis song of the same name, are who are curious whether there is a connection, will find it interesting to know that, in fact, Willis's song was inspired by the rock 'n' roll-themed McDonald's flagship restaurant in Chicago, which abandoned that theming in 2017. The similarly-themed Bismarck location was also known as the McDonald's Rock 'n' Roll Cafe. We have been unable to determine as yet whether Wesley Willis ever visited that location.

Get your free Personal Reboot Guide at www.theconfidentman.meCheck out more resources to help you as a man at David Maxwell CoachingI'm a fan of the muppets since childhood when we would watch the muppets and their special guests each week. When my kids were smaller, we loved Muppet Christmas Carol and Muppet Treasure Island. In fact, we still watch them today. The 2011 movie "The Muppets" with Jason Segal and Amy Adams was a great return to classic muppet movies. Today's podcast title comes from a song that won an Oscar from that movie: Man or Muppet.If we never ask ourselves questions about who we are and where we are at in life, it isn't good for us as men. We need to always be willing to reflect and see where we are as men. We are going to talk about what makes a muppet and how a lot of men are living their life as muppets and not real men. The CaricatureThe reality of muppets is they are caricatures of people and they aren't realMen will often allow themselves to become caricatures and they stop being authentic as menThe Caricature of Peer PressureThe Caricature of ActingThe Caricature of Self-RejectionAs men, we must always focus on making sure we are growing authentically and haven't moved into just being a caricature of a manThe ControlledMuppets are controlled and I think that is something men have to think about todayI'm talking about men who allow society, people, or the lie to control themSocietyPeopleThe LieThe Comic ReliefWhat makes the muppets so popular...they are funnyAs men, we have to make sure that we don't fall into the singular role of comic reliefWe should develop all sides of ourselves as men and not get relegated to the funny guyWe want to be men who can be funny but are also capable of having serious discussions and taking care of business when we need toToo many men have adopted the role of comic relief in life and they are typecast in that roleMen can be fun, but they also need to know when to get serious with life and all that life brings their way

[School of Movies 2022] This is a movie we covered already, back in the winter of 2011. But back then I was really just getting warmed up, and it was a comparative show with the Robert Zemekis version from 2009. But huge thanks to my guests back then who always bring the insight; Taylor Nova and Matt Ramsey.  This time we delve deep into both the Dickens book and why the Henson version hits all the notes exactly right, as well as the recent and long-awaited restoration of the 1992 film (with the missing song performed by Meredith Braun now back in place) on its thirtieth anniversary. And accompanying us this time are a pair of veritable Muppet experts who run their own dedicated podcast on these ageless furry anarchist entertainers!  Settle in for a genuinely epic journey through one of the greatest Yuletides stories ever told, being retold in perhaps the greatest way possible.

This week, Alan, Quinta, and Scott were reunited after a few weeks apart to talk through the week's big national security news, including:“In the Land of the Blind, the One-Eyed Man is Still Guilty of Seditious Conspiracy.” The jury in the Oath Keepers trial came back last week, convicting every defendant of at least one criminal offense—including the controversial charge of seditious conspiracy. What might this mean for other Jan. 6 investigations moving forward?“Morality? Puh-leeze.” Weeks of protests in Iran finally seemed to bear fruit last week when a regime official signaled that the morality police may be disbanded and laws requiring that women wear hijabs be repealed. But other regime figures don't seem on-board with that solution. Is this a sign that protests are succeeding? Where might they go from here?“Les Fleurs du MAL.” The litigation that led Judge Aileen Cannon to appoint a special master to review evidence collected by the FBI from former President Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate this past summer has finally culminated in its final form: an 11th Circuit ruling reversing Judge Cannon's order and disbanding the process altogether. Where will the investigation go from here?For object lessons, Alan celebrated Quinta and Ben's silver screen debut. Quinta recommended Rachel Maddow's new podcast series "Ultra." And Scott provided an essential Muppet holiday special update, flagging both that "A Muppet Christmas Carol" was being restored to its original form on Disney+ on 12/11 as well as an online version of the 1987 classic, "A Muppet Family Christmas."
