Episode 150 — Warrior Pose

Recommended Posts

Captain of industry Paul Scheer hangs with Ku-Ku and Wie-Wie on today’s milestone 150th episode of Who Charted! Howard nails a live music theme and the group discusses nme.com’s list of creepiest songs, which leads to a treat: Snoop Lion and Eddie Murphy’s new reggae project! Paul tells an epic Sly Stallone story during the dirty cop movie chart and answers your questions about Arsenio Hall’s reaction to Paul’s web series, the ArScheerio Paul Show. All that, plus some chart exclusives!

Sly Stallone did in fact host SNL about a month after Cop Land was released in theatres in 1997. Pretty good episode, too. Some good sketches.

Yeah, i don't know if it's a coincidence or not, but ever since I updated my iphone to the new IOS whatever-the-fuck, I've had nothing but problems. All of my podcast settings are all screwed up and nothing is downloading automatically like it used to. I don't want to actually do any manual labor to combat this problem, I just want to bitch about it.

Great episode; always good when Paul Scheer stops by any podcast.

His cadence and his energy he brought to the show was AMAZING (going with a Memzouks here). And that Copland story... christ, nearly peed in my pants from laughing.

 

Now if we can get the whole WDTGM crew together for an episode of Whooch and do a Whooch/HDTGM crossover (like a comic book) I'd be a happy Earwolfer!

Nice episode. My one problem is with the music chart: the scariest Cure song is obviously "Lullaby" (aka The Spiderman).

I'd say anything off Pornography. That is a creepy-ass album.

How about "

"? That scream at the end always used to get me. I've long moved on, but they had a really great run in the 1980s. Robert Smith is one of the best pop song writers of all time; "Just Like Heaven" is about as perfect of a pop song as you can have.

 

On the subject of crazy ass TV interviews that would never happen in our modern age:

Yeah, Howard had a rare miss with this one, and it was somewhat surprising since he seems to like the Smiths/Morrissey.

 

Speaking of unexpected opinions from Wie, "I've got nothing against non-Summah." WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE?!?

 

Who does Russell Crowe think he is, Todd Glass?

I love Paul Scheer, but that hat of his is goddamn disgusting.

 

I'm willing to write it off as a London souvenir and give him a pass.

I have a sneaking suspicion that April makes him go to Morrissey.

This is one my favorite WhoCh's in a while. Scheer is always great. Also, Kremer's the only person who agrees with my about Radiohead; they should've stopped after "Creep". My only complaint is that I'm pretty sure the title of the Werner Herzog film is "Bad Lieutenant COLON Port of Call New Orleans".

"Everything in it's Right Place" is one of my favorite Radiohead songs. It's eerie, maybe. Haunting, maybe. But not "creepy". I don't see it as horror-movie material. NME don't know what they're talking about.

 

"Kid A" and "Amnesia" is my favorite Radiohead era. I'm gonna have to respectfully disagree with Howard.

 

And if any of you listen to the Best Show on WFMU, you already know that Suicide's "Frankie Teardrop" is the creepiest song.

Creep is such a bland pop song. Radiohead is much better now. In Rainbows is as good as anything they've done. The last album was a slight misstep though.

Yeah, Radiohead is a much better band now than they were when they made Pablo Honey. In my eyes, their best work by far was OK Computer. But all of their albums have greatness in their own right. I had a hard time getting into King of Lambs because it was so electronic, but that is the route that they devuldged onto, so I'll accept it and study it. They are a very intelligent and creative band, so I have to trust that whatever path they choose to take here on out, will be at least an innovative endeavour.

After giving a listen to the podcast again, I have to say these so-called 'creepiest songs' aren't creepy.

Benny Mardones' Into The Night.. THATS CREEPY!

 

 

Just the lyrics alone... *shudder* Fucking creepy.

I'll agree with Paul about Radiohead. They had some of the best albums of a generation with The Bends, OK Computer, and Kid A, and they had a solid one with Hail to the Thief. Then they just got really scrambled with one other's direction and started doing really experimental stuff that you could take or leave. Their albums aren't as solid as they used to be because of it.

 

Then Howard started talking about one of them getting shot and I was like WTF.
