The Best Debate in the Universe - Music festivals suck. Or do they? I muster up my deepest curmudgeon this episode to determine once and for all: ARE MUSIC FESTIVALS STUPID PIECES OF SHIT THAT ARE A HUGE WASTE OF TIME?
Monday June 5th 2017
Are music festivals stupid pieces of shit that are a huge waste of time? Writer and comedian, Caitlin Hal, an avid fan of music festivals. Caitlin is one of the most prepared guests we've had on the show, with actual notes and evidence. But I have evidence too: skirt twirlers. There are only 3 types of people who go to concerts, and terrorists are one of them. I prefer solitude when I listen to music in the comfort of my own car. Or bike, while I imagine the music instead of listening to it. Imaginations rule! Make sure to check out Caitlin's Instagram account:
Mikey Bolts is back this week, well-rested and killing it with the mix on this episode. Also, unrelated to Mikey, Trump pays a short visit but decides to sit quietly on his stool for the duration of this episode. Rucka agrees with me (I think), and has a very damning wrap-up about the year 2003.
Also, a big you're-welcome to everyone who pre-ordered my book: F*CK WHALES: Petty Essays from a Brilliant Mind. The countdown has begun. October 17. Clear your year. Clear your life:
We finally round out the episode with a story of women putting wasp nests on their vaginas, and I'm vindicated for flying kites. Not only does kite-flying get you laid, it could get you killed. I brought in a gruesome clip from TOMO News, the Taiwanese company that makes 3D animation of news stories. I'd embed it but it's pretty gory. Linked below if you want to have a bad time.
What do you think? Are music festivals stupid pieces of shit that are a huge waste of time? Make sure to comment below on our podcast, which is definitely enriching and not a waste of time.
