He's back! Paul F. Tompkins, the suited gentleman you all know and love, has returned to the chartist's chair and ready to dish on The Billboard Digital Singles Chart, The Movie Chart, and a fancy game of P.T. Chart Darts. Paul advises Howard on his television watching, his lip chapping, and we ruminate on the joys of kissing and being kissed. You should g this e an l.

Last night I was walking down the street and someone pulled up to a stoplight blasting music. I just heard "so call me maybe, ahnd all the oth-er boys" and then they took off. It was a magical moment.

I completely related to PFT's confusion over Game of Thrones.

YES! PFT! Also, maybe it's just that everyone in my life is pretty Game of Thrones obsessed currently but I manage to keep most characters straight.

Lived in Baltimore (Baltimurdah) for four years and Hammahjacks was a great place to summah ... until they shut it down in '05 because it was incredibly dangerous/underage drinking was rampant.
Now, who wants ice cream?

Kulap and PFT have the best chemistry. And by best, I mean second only to Kulap and Scott. Welp, I'm off to write my Earwolf fanfics.

Me'thinks PFT's initializing habit may have been inspired by his recent Dead Author's Podcast with PG Wodehouse who frequently initialized select nouns in this stories. For example, Bertie Wooster eats breakfasts of E and B and likes to unwind in the afternoon with a strengthening G and T and so forth.

Sometimes it is unbelieveable how charming this podcast can be. This is one of those weeks.

On the subject of hands...Has anyone checked out Liam Neeson's hands in "The Grey"? It's like he has a fist full of big toes. >_>

Good episode but the Chernobyl jokes fall flat since it's in Ukraine, not Russia.

Ukraine didn't declare independence from Russia until 1991. The Chernobyl shit happened in '86. BOOM!

And the movie and the jokes stemming from it are based on the location in present day.

None more appearances, please. The first post should be revised to read "Paul F. Tompkins, the suited gentleman you all know and love, has returned"

Yes, there's always plenty of energy with Paul, but it rarely seems genuine. It feels more like refocused contempt for the audience. I'm not a hater, and I don't think I'm projecting here, I just get a vibe from him like he doesn't really enjoy what he's doing. And it was disapoining to see him come up again when there are so many other funny people who have yet to be on, like:

Weird Al
Chelsea Peretti
Aziz Ansari
Patton Oswalt
Maria Bamford
Jon Glaser
Morgan Murphy
Kristen Schaal
Joe Mande
Donald Glover
John Mulaney
Kurt Braunohler
Jerry Minor
Tig Notaro
Rich Fulcher
Dino Stamatopoulos
Reggie Watts
Demetri Martin
Peter Serafinowicz
Hannibal Buress
Jon Benjamin
Myq Kaplan
Eugene Mirman
Leo Allen
Kevin Nealon
A.D. Miles
Aisha Tyler
Todd Glass
either of The Sklar Brothers
