The real hit girl group is AKB48. AKB comes from Akihabara, often called "AKIBA," the district of Tokyo where they are centered and do most of their live shows. 48 is because there are 48 members. Yes, 48. You guys thought it was crazy that Morning Musume has 15 members, but this group genuninely has 48! Not only that, but there are a bunch more spinoff groups in other parts of Japan, and all of them have 48 members too!
Too bad AKB48 wasn't on the charts this week. I would have liked to see how Natasha would have reacted.

I'm with Howard… Backstreet Boys is a deal-breaker, but that explains why Kulap is married to Scott and not me (or you).
This round of Chart Piñata was different in that the candy didn't fall every time - until the end. That's new right? I liked it.
Also the pics from this ep. are the most unflattering I've ever seen of the usually gorgeous Naty Leggs, so… congrats?

Compared to Kulap's astrological retreats, alien/pyramid/conspiracy theory infatuation, and other such mystical ayahuasca dreamcatcher indigo children crystal skull nonsense, the Choctaw's appreciation for the Backstreet Boys seems downright reasonable.
Toward the end of the recording, it sounded like Kulap realized the episode was running long, and they trimmed a bunch of fat as a result.
Eh, the photo archive indicates a lot of people don't bother getting all dolled up for the recording of an audio-only podcast.

You guys gotta give Perfume another chance! you're missing the visual element of this group. Whats not to like about 3 long legged japanese girls with dope dance moves?
Agreed. It was a little sad to hear them shit on Perfume.

Woah ease up there, it's called aging. And yeah you don't exactly need to dress up for a podcast. I often podcast while wearing a onesie.
