    for a well-fed cog in the machine to affirm that men and women are persons, and as persons should be free from oppression, and yet do nothing tangible to make this affirmation a reality, is a farce. what concrete reality-transforming critical interventions do you plan to make in your day-to-day life? how do you intend to translate your woke feminism into the liberation of women?

     

     

     

    I'm gonna tweet some woke shit.

    This is a classic trick by Dan Engler to steal your identity. Don't do it Chanson.

     

    Send me $10,000 and I will fix the problem with your avatar. It's the only way actually

     

    I can't, I have this Nigerian prince handling all of my finances right now and he will NOT let me send my money to anyone else! Dude takes his job VERY seriously, I guess...

  3. Jen,

     

    So you like pizza or something? Is that what your deal is? Honestly, I'm not sure it's "for me" but whatever. Anyway, my question is how do you make people like your jokes even though they objectively are not funny?

     

    Edit: I just realized it might seem like I'm saying YOUR jokes aren't funny, but I'm asking about MY jokes. I don't know if your jokes are funny or not. That's not up to me to decide, it's your life, don't let me tell you what to do.

  4. why can't anyone in this forum ever be serious?! THE FUCKING PODCAST IS CANCELED and all you jerkoffs act like you couldnt care less. FACE THE FACTS: 1. Hollywood Handbook was one of Earwolf's lowest rated podcasts. 2. Its not like the old days, they have corporate investors now who only care about the BOTTOM LINE (remember paywall?). 3. This was already Sean & Hayes second chance after Reality Show Show 4. When Andy Kaufman died everyone thought it was another one of his elaborate jokes (EVEN HIS PARENTS).

     

    First of all...... You don't know that the podcast is cancelled, they've made that joke multiple times before and it's still here and quite honestly, it seemed like a bit. Moreover, there's a live episode coming up, so there's at least one more episode as far as I'm aware.

     

    Second of all, that's really hurtful that you would say we couldn't care less. Most of us love this podcast more than much of anything else in our lives, it's literally our favorite thing, so maybe cool it with the telling us how we feel about stuff.

     

    On your first point, Hollywood Handbook has very high listenership and a lot of advertisers. I can't pretend to know the figures, but I think you'll find that it's doing pretty well and the number of advertisements on the show bodes very well.

     

    On your second point, yeah, maybe, it's hard to tell what changes are happening or are going to happen at Earwolf vis-a-vis the Scripps acquisition, I'm not going to speculate on that because I don't know anything about it.

     

    On the third point, was this a second chance? I don't know, 150 episodes and three years feels like a lot more than a second chance to me, I would give them a little more credit than that.

     

    On the fourth point, I can't speak on that specifically, but joking about the show being cancelled has happened multiple times before and yes, it does worry me, but also, it's funny. I enjoy it even though a little piece of me is dying on the inside.

     

    Hopefully this helps. I'm not trying to be a jerk, just explaining, as someone who has been around for a long long time now, why I'm not running around like a chicken with my head cut off. I'm gonna keep having fun here with my friends on the forums because that's something that has brought me a lot of joy. Sometimes we talk about the podcast that we all love, too, but mostly we fuck around, and I like that a lot.

     

    Love, Chanson.

  5. Here's my feeling about Hollywood Handbook (and also most of the other things I enjoy): I want other people to like it so that they keep making more, but I also don't want anyone I know to like it because I don't think they'll like it correctly and/or I'm afraid they'll judge me for liking it as much as I do even though, objectively, they're wrong and I'm not. I guess what I'm saying is that I'm a selfish coward, so we really aren't breaking new ground here.

     

    Edit: I'm not sure why I felt compelled to share this, but I did and now it's not my problem anymore.

  6. hi guys recorded an album this weekend please buy it after it has been overdubbed, mixed, mastered, contracted out to a label, pressed, promoted, exclusively premiered on some website no one has ever heard of, and released

     

    How long does that take? I mean, like, don't get me wrong, I totally know how long all that would take, but like, if I didn't know that, how long would it take?
