For the last year or so, I’ve had the Nerdist Podcast in my player. They do 2-3 podcasts a week with comedians, entertainers and cool Bills like Bill Nye and Bill Gates. If I know the person they’re talking to, I’ll listen to the show.
This week, Kal Penn (of Harold and Kumar and House M.D. fame) was on the show. He’s an incredible guy and he left House in its heyday to go work for the Obama campaign. They talk about a lot of cool stuff and I found the whole thing very interesting, including a conversation about old-school, racist aspects of Hollywood that genuinely shocked me. You should listen!
I’ve been a big fan of Fall Out Boy for quite some time now, and I really don’t think they’ve had much (if any) drop in quality from their old, popular stuff, like Sugar, We’re Going Down, and even earlier albums. Listening to this album makes me feel like a teenager again, but the band is growing up along with me.
This is an old album (released in 2010) but Julia is going through Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix and You Got What I Need came on (House M.D. also features at least one Josh Radin song, Brand New Day). It took me back to that time and it’s just a really great, solid album. All of his other stuff is great too, you should check it out!
