Even though it's a holiday today, we managed to round up two of your three usual hosts for a bit of the old Fancasting. But just because it's a holiday, don't go thinking there ain't a thing worth talking about -- we tackle the latest NPD numbers, this Hulu Plus business and even find time to sing our favorite fabric-based commercial from the mid '90s. Grab the latest episode below and be sure to hit the break for all of the pertinent linkage.
