Howard has an upcoming comedy album recording (except it happened right before this episode came out) and there are certain people who can’t come see it. Fortunately Kulap and all of us Chartists are invited to know about all things Howard related. Ku-Ku helps Howard work through his nerves and they also discuss proper summer vacationing, whether stress sweat is stinkier than regular sweat, and famous inventions they could have come up with. Ku-ku counts down her top 5 newish alternative songs and talks about a recent book that has women leaning in and taking their place at the table. Then Howard counts down his top 5 fears for his upcoming recording including; having to get alcohol for the whole crowd, hearing literal crickets, and worst of all… the unknown. Enjoy it Chartists!
Matt Walsh takes time from being the vice president’s director of communications on Veep to get acquainted with the charts! Matt lets us know why a dog would be more apt to be moved by music, explains a fantasy celebrity couple game to us, and gets into how writing credits work while counting down the Ultimate Music Chart. He then gives us the inside scoop of UCB-LA’s neighboring establishments, tells us about his part in an upcoming tornado film, and shares where we can find his film High Road during the Movie Chart. Finally, Matt meets the one and only Hermes the Chart Goose!
Ears and a heart are all you need to enjoy today’s edition of TWO CHARTED! Ku-ku and Wie- wie talk about ram hand’s dangerous new butter based diet, the stupidity of every mystery thriller, and then they do a scene between a Japanese girl and Lee Kremer. Then it turns to family as Howard counts down the best days from his trip to Nashville which included; bad weather, too much love from his effervescent mother, his cool uncle, a disappointingly different atmosphere from the tv show Nashville, and a surprise bag of weed in his travel bag. Ku-ku follows that by counting down her big moments from her trip home to Minnesota. It’s a slice of Kulap’s life including her charming spider-man loving nephew, good eats, and a serious and positive event with her fam. Listen while you eat a bar of butter Chartists!
Brilliant comic book artist David W. Mack joins Ku-Ku and Wie-Wie in this extra delightful edition of WHO CHARTED! Kulap geeks out over David’s comic catalogue as they chat about comics, making your pecs dance, and using push ups as a medicine for anxiousness. They also discuss non-linear storytelling, summer movies that make your brain work too hard, and the cubist structure of WC. David talks about the negative reinforcement he got when he played with fire or made potato guns and he also lets out some juicy details about a possible Kabuki movie. He also talks about sewing, whooping butt at karate, and breaking down media saturation… he’s amazing. They countdown the top 5 albums on iTunes and the top 5 action movie heroines of the last thirty years. Then it’s time for a rousing game of Chart Roulette. Enjoy Chartists!
