Yeah, so, I’ve got nothing but love for “House Party.” I’m so glad that Margo and I finally did an episode about it on Dorking Out.
Yeah, so, like every other woman over 40 I’m completely in love with Lizzo. A few days before Halloween she came to San Francisco for two nights, and she was good as hell.
My sister Michelle and I had such a good time. The audience was the nicest and most polite audience I’ve ever seen at a concert.
I saw a woman trying to take a selfie in the restroom, and another woman (a stranger!) said, “You look so great. Let me take that photo for you.”
The crowd was mainly women and gay men, so it was also the most apologetic group ever.
“No, I’m sorry.”
“No, no. It was my fault.”
“No, I’m sorry. You first.”
Since the concert was a few nights before Halloween, and I knew everyone would have a 100% That Bitch shirt I decided to get something a little different.
Of course, my silly shirt wasn’t the best outfit at the concert. While waiting in line to get into the concert, I saw the most amazing jacket. I couldn’t stop staring at it, and repeatedly asking Michelle, “Whooooooose jacket is this?”
Sometimes I just text her this photo and ask her again, “Whooooooose jacket is this?” I will never not be funny to me.
Yeah, so, Margo and I talk about Louis CK on our latest episode of What a Creep.
There are some folks who think what Louis CK did isn’t that big of a deal. It is, and we talk about it. We also have a really good chat about the difference between punching up and punching down in comedy.
Oh, and, I get all ranty, so if you’re aching to hear Ranty Sonia, this is the episode for you.
Over at Dorking Out, we continue to celebrate F This Movie’s #ScaryMovieMonth with an episode about “The Blair Witch Project.” This movie absolutely terrified me back in 1999. How does it hold up? We talk about it.
We’ve got big plans for both podcasts in November. The Patreon page for What a Creep will go live soon. Plus, we’re celebrating season 5 (OMG!) in November with a theme: 90s in November. If you have a movie from the ’90s you’d love for us to dork out about, let us know on Twitter or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yeah, so, here’s a few podcasting updates for you …
Here’s actual footage of me talking about Betsy DeVos …
Yeah, so, Margo and I never give, never surrender and talk about 1999’s “Galaxy Quest” on this week’s Dorking Out. This is one of her favorite comedies, and it was super fun to revisit it.
Your assignment if you choose to accept it: Next week’s episode is 1992’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” RIP Luke Perry.
Yeah, so, I love Kevin Costner. I do. I don’t know why, but I’ve got a real soft spot for him.
I was a big fan of “Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves” when I saw it in 1991. So, when a listener requested that Margo and I watch it for Dorking Out, I was pretty excited. I thought it would be a really fun rewatch. Alan Rickman is really great in it, but it wasn’t a fun rewatch. However, it was super fun to talk about it with Margo.
And, if you want to do something really awesome for me, you could leave a review on Apple Podcasts. Apparently, reviews really matter to Apple, and all our reviews are from when Smith was still on the show. Please, and thank you!
Yeah, so, we have an Alexa in our house, but we don’t really use her that often.
She tells us when packages arrive, and occasionally I ask her to play music for me. I assume the rest of the time she’s monitoring our every word and reporting back to Amazon and/or the government. I don’t care because whoever is listening is bored AF.
“Ugh. They’re debating about what kind of delivery to get AGAIN. You ordered Chinese food the other day, assholes! What’s the debate about? You know you’re going to get Indian food. Just stop talking about it and order it already. … Here we go. She’s talking about her Weight Watchers Points again. For fuck’s sake! You’re going to eat the Indian food anyway, fatty! Oh good, now she’s lying to herself about how she’s going to yoga later tonight. Yeah, sure you are, honey. Go put on your eatin’ pants and slippers. You’re not going back out tonight.”
So, yeah, the other thing I’m using Alexa for is parenting.
It’s been raining like a lot in San Francisco, and every morning I get into this debate with my mighty, mighty good boy Calvin about wearing his raincoat.
Him: “It’s not going to rain.”
Me: “It is!”
Him: “No, it’s not. It’s not going to rain. I don’t need to wear that coat. I want my sweatshirt.”
Repeat five days a week for the entire winter season.
So, last week I got the brilliant idea to get Alexa to back me up.
Me: “It is going to rain. Ask Alexa! She will tell you.”
Him: “Alexa, is it going to rain today?”
Alexa: “The temperature is 45 degrees with showers expected today.”
Him: “I need my raincoat.”
Ta-dah! Calvin will listen to Alexa, but not me.
Now I’m going to get Alexa to start suggesting that he eat vegetables and pick up his dirty clothes. Pretty soon I won’t have to parent at all! Then I’ll spend even more time debating our delivery food options with David.
Yeah, so, this is super scary for the people that suffer from severe nut allergies.
Yeah, so, the Oscars are coming up soon, so Margo and I decided to dork out about one of the least popular Best Picture winners in recent years, “Crash,” starring Hollywood’s biggest stars AND Tony Danza.
We have a lot of thoughts and feelings about this one, including but not limited to “what the fuck,” “are you fuckin’ kidding me,” and “this is a bullshit movie.”
