You’ll notice this is only twenty songs. Sadly, “Goodbye Goodbye” from the soundtrack to “Fast Times At Ridgemont High” is not available on Spotify. Yes, I could’ve provided the version from the 1988 “Boingo Alive” album. But, uh… NO. You’ll have to make due with streaming “Goodbye Goodbye” right here.
I would also like to thank Steve Agee for his Oingo Boingo based enthusiasm and excitement today. I feel like we’ve all done good work here.
Thank you Jake, John & Steve, stars of “Three Men and a Passion for Oingo Boingo!”
How Was Your Week with Julie Klausner #36 — “HWYW LIVE”
The first ever Live How Was Your Week ended with a fake roast of Miranda July. The roasters included Filmed Blowjob Receiver/Director Vincent Gallo (Anthony Atamanuik), Fat Guy/Playwright Neil LaBute (John Gemberling), Drunk/Actress Lorraine Bracco (Jessica Chaffin), Human Centipede Director/Grade-A Creep Tom Six (Fred Armisen), “The Twist” Singer/ “The Twist” Singer Chubby Checker (Billy Eichner, in a wonderful call-back to his appearance in HWYW Episode 2), and Julie as Owner of Elaine’s Restaurant/Dead Jew Elaine Kaufman. Read that list again. Seriously, read that list again. It is the most specifically Julie Klausner assemblage of people imaginable. This is what made the episode, and has made the podcast in general, such a joy; it’s the pure manifestation of Julie’s comedic voice. The episode felt less like a straight adaption of the podcast and more like Julie’s version of a late night talk show if the network was also run by Julie and all the viewers were going to be Julie.
