Here’s a picture of me and Rease from all the way back in 2011, when we went to see LCD Soundsystem at a nightclub in Palermo. This photo is pretty blurry, and we’re getting ruthlessly photobombed by the nose-picking stranger behind us. Rease and I have a lot of photos together, but somehow they’re all varying degrees of terrible. You could probably make that into some metaphor for our friendship, but I’m not gonna.
Rease joins me on the podcast for the second time, making her the first-ever returning guest! (Well, not exactly; I recorded a second podcast with my friend Aly, but for reasons we discuss in the first few minutes of this pod, it turned out near-unlistenable and is due for a re-recording. Sorry Aly!). This episode is also remarkable in that it was recorded live from Miami, right next to the ocean. Because clearly podcasting and the ocean go hand-in-hand.
We discuss our trip to Miami, our visit to Santa’s Enchanted Forest, Rease’s ranking of male creepiness, and other such minutiae. Somehow we also find the time to play some music! Here’s the playlist to this episode:
Tilly and the Wall- “Heavy Mood”
María Pien- “El Sapo”
LCD Soundsystem- “Get Innocuous”
The Smashing Pumpkins- “Mayonaise”
Sufjan Stevens- “Did I Make You Cry on Christmas Day?
(Well You Deserved It)”
Bomb the Music Industry!- “Struggler”
