Experiment #270: Christmas Tree
(Rated PG) What's this? Another Christmas episode? Yep, that's right. I micorwaved a Christmas tree for this one. I actually wanted to microwave a Christmas tree as the original premise for the Microwave Me 2013 Christmas special, but at least I got around to microwaving a Christmas tree before Christmas actually came. And for this, I had to use my big Kenmore microwave, Jareth, because he was the only microwave big enough to fit the tree in without snapping it in half, and had I done that, it just would have looked like I was microwaving some brush and it would have lost its coolness factor. This was an 18" Christmas tree, about the limit of what would comfortably fit inside of a microwave. Since it's so dark inside of Jareth, I wrapped some lights around the tree to provide a light show while the tree was microwaving. I had hoped it would catch fire better, but it did catch fire towards the end somewhat, resulting in a well-done Christmas tree. It also, however, resulted in one of the worst smells on my show, only behind the CFL, the glow sticks, and the blender. Hopefully all of you have a happy Christmas and enjoy spending the time with family and you enjoy my Christmas tree microwaving. I've done so many Christmas-themed episodes that I should probably set the season 8 clip show to the Nutcracker suite. While this isn't my best episode, I still thought it was an enjoyable outing, especially when there was some plasma under the tree, it was like some Christmas presents that resulted in a well done tree.
I apologize for the fact that I couldn't get around to doing the dry ice bomb episode, but it had already sublimated by time I got everything set up. I promise, though, I will find a way to do it eventually, and I will get at least one really cool experiment in for season 8, guaranteed. A lava lamp perhaps? Or maybe some road flares? Or a large firework? Something like that. But there's also going to be even more Christmas themed episodes, like some kind of annoying singing holiday toy from K-Mart. Season 8 of Microwave Me is filmed, edited, hosted, and produced by Matthew Villani, also known as Captain Microwave, using different microwaves over the course of a season, this time a huge 1984 Kenmore BEAST of a microwave named Jareth.
