Episode 6: Hobbies, Part 2

Episode 6In our latest episode, we briefly chat about Emma Watson’s recent casting and popular music comedy bands! Our theme, this week, was hobbies once again; this time, our focus was on smaller, less experienced hobbies that we enjoy, or would like to try. Finally, we play another couple rounds of “Would You Rather”!

Note From Carmen: Actually, because of a family emergency, I didn’t get to attend the Weird Al/Nerdist night at SF Sketchfest, but one of my friends did end up going and he met Chris Hardwick and I hate him a lot for it. (Well…yeah, no I hate him.)

Let us know what your small hobbies are! And if you want to participate in our “Would You Rather” questions, here they are:

  • Would you rather have a head the size of a tennis ball or the size of a watermelon?
  • Would you rather be married to Paris Hilton or Charlie Sheen?
  • Would you rather be an average, not famous professional athlete on your current salary or a wealthy, world renowned professional in a field you don’t care about (mathematician, classical musician, whatever)?
  • Would you rather be the famous author of Twilight or the famous writer of every Nickelback song?

Episode 5: Animals

Making some changes! We’re going to be releasing at midnight EST (so 9pm PST) and I’m adding some minor episode art because sharing on Facebook has been weird since they’re not giving us the correct preview… I also added the Twitter feed on the sidebar. Anyway! On to the podcast…

Episode 5In this episode, we talk a little about some media news items, like Google Fiber and the new Ghostbusters remake. Our main theme this week is animals; we talk about our favourite animals, what we would be reincarnated as if we are given a choice, and our least favourite animals. We also play Marry/Shag/Kill!

1:45 – Carmen meant to say broadband but she forgot what it was called!

A lot of stuff to add this week with the post! Here is Kristen Wiig and Will Farrell at Golden Globes that Sowmya mentioned:

Pixellated hair!

Scottish Highland Cattle! So fluffy!

I was slightly wrong about the French Bulldog Instagram that I follow, it’s actually http://instagram.com/FrenchieButt. Here’s an adorable picture of his cute rump!

(The embed code wasn’t working so I thought screencapping the Insta would be okay.)

Alright! Let us know what your favourite animals are or what you would want to be reincarnated as! Also if you want to play Marry/Shag/Kill, here is the link that we used at The Bert Show.

Episode 4: Hobbies, Part 1

Episode 4In our fourth episode, we give an update about our lives since it’s the first week of the month! Happy February! Our main theme, though, is hobbies, and we each talk about our own hobby; drawing for Sowmya and crochet for Carmen.

Here’s the Kewpie baby logo that we talked about at the beginning, what do you think, creepy or cute? (Cute!)

Sowmya posted a picture of her amazing butterfly from January yesterday, give it a look!

If you want to join the discussion, here are the questions we gave ourselves to answer!

  1. When did you start doing this particular hobby?
  2. Who or What Got you into this hobby? WHY Basically?
  3. How long have you been doing this hobby?
  4. How expensive is your hobby?
  5. Do you think this hobby is difficult? What aspects are difficult?
  6. Have you ever thought of making money from your hobby?
  7. How can people get into it?

And here was the “If…” question we answered (and here is the link to the book on Amazon):

  • If you were to be granted one wish, what would it be?

Episode 3: Music

Episode 3In this latest episode, we talk a little bit about subscription boxes (beauty, makeup and food) and some media news, but our main theme was music! We talk about our favourite genres, artists, songs, and how Carmen isn’t the biggest fans of popular musicals. This one goes a little long guys (approx. 60 minutes!) so just be aware!

Editor’s Note: I was going to cut out the part where I screw up James Corden’s name @ 21:18-21:33, but I thought it was too cute of us to cut out! Sorry for the giggles (but actually not sorry at all)!

Here are the subscription boxes we mentioned in order: Loot Crate, BirchBox, Ipsy, Plated, GrubBox. Sowmya looked it up later, and Graze is actually what it’s called (but we didn’t mention it in the podcast).

We promised to post the picture of the boy with the stormtrooper prosthetic arm but I decided to post the video instead:

And here’s the story I showed Sowmya: Seven-year-old Boy Receives a 3D-printed Star Wars Clone Trooper Prosthetic Arm

Here’s a link to James Gordon Corden on the Alan Carr show, embedding is disabled so you’ll have to watch it on YouTube.

Lastly! Here is Sowmya’s friend’s band, Jet Set Gypsies, and here is their Facebook (which Sowmya recommends because they’re more active there). Give them a listen and let us know if you love them as much as she does!

Episode 2: Guilty Pleasures

Episode 2In our second episode, we talk about our guilty pleasures in movies, TV shows, and music. There’s also a couple of new segments: we talk about “What’s New” topics like the Golden Globe awards and Oscar nominations, we play a round of “Would You Rather” questions, and then we end on a quirky quote from one of the guilty pleasure movies.

Note from Carmen: I did end up looking up The Kingsman’s Secret Service, which we talk about in our “What’s New” segment, and it is not out yet in the US. I saw a review of it on The Nerdist blog; I got excited and wanted to tell Sowmya. It will be out in the US on February 13th!

Here’s the clip we promised to post with the quote of the week:

If you want to answer the “Would You Rather” questions here they are. They were taken from this Buzzfeed article. Would You Rather:

  • Have Cheetos fingers for the rest of your life OR have a popcorn kernel stuck in the back of your throat for the rest of your life.
  • Use sandpaper as toilet paper OR hot sauce as eye drops.
  • Never have access to the internet OR have Nicolas Cage always be within 1 meter of you.
  • Change sex every time you sneeze OR not be able to tell the difference between a baby and a muffin.
