BETH HOYT: Have a nice trip.
[THEME MUSIC]
[INAUDIBLE]
My Damn Channel Live.
It's me, Beth Hoyt.
It's a big Wednesday show.
We have not one, but two special guests for you today.
We've got Julie Klausner, author of the book, "I Don't
Care About Your Band," and host of "The Hit", and one of
my favorite podcasts, "How Was Your Week?"
And if you've listened to "How Was Your Week?" Then you've
heard the theme song by funny man and indie punk rock legend
Ted Leo, who's also here.
We're going to be playing lots of games, including another
round of Fuck, Marry, Kill.
You know how it goes.
Three names, you know.
Give us some suggestions for that in the chat.
We'll use them.
First, though, I want to talk about chairs.
I was hanging out with my sister the other day and I
was, I was sitting in this chair, and my sister told me
to stop fidgeting.
To which I was like, A, rude, and B, I'm not fidgeting.
I just, I really like sitting in different ways.
And I do.
You know, if you know something about
me, you know that.
So I thought I'd just quickly show you guys my favorite ways
to sit on a chair.
So to do this, I just need like, I need a chair, this
one, this will do.
I'll use this one, this will be fine.
Basically, I mean, we can start with just a simple, a
classic cheeks on the seat maneuver.
I really like to center myself.
So I'm like, in position to sit down.
Then I just, then I go from right here
just to plopping down.
And it, you know, like, it takes a little settling in on
the sit bones to like, really find the comfort spot.
Some people find it right away.
I have to search for it a little bit, and then you're
like, this is it.
And then that's it.
And you stay there.
Second move is just a little--
you guys know it.
It's the leg cross.
Knee over knee.
I like to sit, I like to cross to the left.
It's nice way to get, like a bit of a stretch in the
glutes, as well as generally air out the situation.
There's nothing worse than a sweaty sit butt
during a long meeting.
That's the worst.
So I just, those are two.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Hi, Beth.
BETH HOYT: Julie.
Julie Klauser, everybody.
JULIE KLAUSNER: What are you doing?
BETH HOYT: I am demonstrating some different ways to sit.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I love sitting.
BETH HOYT: Oh my gosh.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I have a way to sit.
BETH HOYT: Great.
Julie Klausner is adding to the more
ways to sit on chairs.
JULIE KLAUSNER: So this is a cool way to sit on a chair if
you have like, a classroom full of students.
And you want to maybe like, learn from their life lessons.
BETH HOYT: Oh my gosh.
JULIE KLAUSNER: You kind of lean over the front of the
chair, and you--
BETH HOYT: This is assertive.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Want to--
it's both.
It's submissive and assertive.
BETH HOYT: I see what you're saying.
Because you're putting up a barrier.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yeah, exactly.
But you're also open.
So you lean into it, and then I like to steeple my fingers
at first, and rest my chin on my thumbs.
And then just nod until I unsteep--
steepling.
BETH HOYT: I get you.
I'm more of a, like a--
JULIE KLAUSNER: Sleepy?
TED LEO: Hey, guys.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Hi, Ted.
BETH HOYT: Hey, Ted.
TED LEO: Hey.
Sitting?
BETH HOYT: Ted Leo, everybody.
TED LEO: Yes.
BETH HOYT: We're sitting.
TED LEO: Cool.
BETH HOYT: We're sitting the crap out of today so far.
TED LEO: I like sitting too.
Yeah.
Do you have another chair around?
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
Can you grab Ted this chair?
TED LEO: Oh, nice.
Cool.
Now, I'm just going to tell you right off the bat.
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
TED LEO: It's not super healthy to be
sitting all the time.
You don't burn as many calories
as when you're standing.
BETH HOYT: Here we go.
TED LEO: So there's a method that I've developed.
It's called pulse squats.
BETH HOYT: Oh, sure.
TED LEO: Just like a simple up and down things.
Gets the, gets the heart rate up.
You know, you go up.
Down.
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
And I'm ready to burn some calories.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I don't--
It takes away the--
TED LEO: And down.
BETH HOYT: This is good.
I've been sitting a while, so yeah.
TED LEO: And down.
JULIE KLAUSNER: No.
It's not as--
BETH HOYT: You can keep listening with your steeple.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yes.
BETH HOYT: Oh, this is great.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I'm gonna pop a listen.
BETH HOYT: This really works your haunches.
TED LEO: Exactly.
And up.
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
This is good.
Awesome, you guys.
Well, there you go.
These are some cool ways to sit in chairs.
We've got a fun show planned.
We'll be answering comments later on the show, so put them
in the chat.
We'll be right back to play a game.
TED LEO: You feel the burn?
BETH HOYT: Stick around, this is--
I'm feeling it.

COOLIO: Can you pass me a spoon, soul roll
brother never would?
Lights up, please.
Come on, now.
Damn, directorio.
What it do?
You must be on them red devils.
Y'all know what a red devil is?
I'm not going to tell you, either.
But I know my uncle used to take them, then fall
asleep at the light.

BETH HOYT: All right.
Hi, guy guys.
Man, um, here, we, this is, need these props.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Oh, thank you.
BETH HOYT: These aren't full, though.
So you guys, what we're doing, we've got some [INAUDIBLE].
I'll give you this one.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Cheers.
BETH HOYT: Not that it matters if you have.
OK, we're here with [INAUDIBLE] "Real Housewives
of New York City" critic Julia Klausner, and
rock star Ted Leo.
Ted, have you ever watched "Real Housewives?"
TED LEO: I have.
BETH HOYT: Oh, good.
JULIE KLAUSNER: You went to high--
You went to high school with Camille Grammer, didn't you?
TED LEO: I uh, no.
She went through to the same grammar school as me.
BETH HOYT: OK.
TED LEO: She is, I believe, maybe one or two
years older than me?
JULIE KLAUSNER: Which is shocking.
TED LEO: Yeah.
JULIE KLAUSNER: She looks like she could
be your crazy auntie.
TED LEO: Yeah.
BETH HOYT: Which one are we talking about?
JULIE KLAUSNER: Camille Grammer.
BETH HOYT: Oh.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yeah.
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
No way.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Isn't that crazy?
BETH HOYT: No.
TED LEO: And of course, of course I'm not going to
remember what her--
JULIE KLAUSNER: Donatacci?
TED LEO: Yeah.
Donatacci.
That's right.
BETH HOYT: OK, you guys.
I've watched plenty myself.
One thing I've learned, I mean, you guys can back me up
on this is that bitches be crazy, right?
JULIE KLAUSNER: In general.
BETH HOYT: Yep.
So we're going to play in general, Bitches Be Crazy.

OK, I'm going to give you guys a quote from either "Real
Housewives of New York City" "Girl, Interrupted," the
Winona Ryder movie about women in an insane asylum.
You have to guess which crazy bitch said what.
JULIE KLAUSNER: OK.
BETH HOYT: Julia and Ted, you use your paddle to show us
which one you think the quote is from.
And you get a point for each one you get correct, and you
drinks for each one you get wrong.
I'm just going to be drinking throughout.
TED LEO: OK.
JULIE KLAUSNER: That makes me more comfortable.
BETH HOYT: That's what we're looking for.
OK.
Are we ready?
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yes.
TED LEO: Yeah.
BETH HOYT: Number one.
I always envision myself on the subway shaking a can,
asking for money.
JULIE KLAUSNER: "Girl, Interrupted."
TED LEO: "Real Housewives.
BETH HOYT: Ted is correct.
You have to drink.
JULIE KLAUSNER: What?
BETH HOYT: Sonja said that on "Real Housewives."
JULIE KLAUSNER: Oh, that seems like a thing Sonja would say.
BETH HOYT: Maybe it'll come true.
She'll be shaking a can on the subway.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I hope not.
BETH HOYT: OK.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Poor Sonja.
TED LEO: Just shaking it for you.
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
Our good vibes are out for her.
JULIE KLAUSNER: No, it doesn't.
BETH HOYT: Who's the next one?
I just don't want to end up like my mother.
JULIE KLAUSNER: "Girl, Interrupted."
TED LEO: I would say "Girl, Interrupted" as well.
BETH HOYT: You're both correct.
Points.
JULIE KLAUSNER: We're going to drink anyway.
BETH HOYT: You can drink anyway.
Cheers, yeah.
Cheers because you got it correct.
All right.
I see how this game goes.
JULIE KLAUSNER: This is not bad for boxed wine.
BETH HOYT: It's actually quite good.
TED LEO: It's a whole new thing.
Boxed wines.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Doesn't have the metallic
sense of like, yeah.
BETH HOYT: Here's a tip, you guys.
Put your red wine in the fridge, and it lasts longer.
Also, this is four bottles in this box.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Oh, really?
That's crazy.
BETH HOYT: I work for this company.
TED LEO: There are quality, quality boxes out there now,
so I'm told.
BETH HOYT: All right, number three.
Go back from under the cabinet you came out of.
Bitch.
JULIE KLAUSNER: "Real Housewives." "Real
Housewives."
TED LEO: I'm going to--
I'm going to phone a, I'm going to phone a friend, and
uh, say "Real Housewives."
BETH HOYT: She did seem quite confident on that one.
It is.
Do you know who said it?
JULIE KLAUSNER: Um, I do, but I don't remember.
BETH HOYT: Alex said it.
Brooklyn and Alex s
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yes, Alex.
BETH HOYT: All right.
If I could have any job in the world, I'd be a professional
Cinderella.
JULIE KLAUSNER: "Girl, Interrupted."
BETH HOYT: You guys are both correct.
It's also from my diary, but that's from "Girl,
Interrupted." All right.
Right now we're going to go into lightning round.
It's not really that different from the last round, I'm just
going to talk faster and with more energy.
It's just going to happen.
OK, ready?
One.
I can't believe you're putting your face in the bidet.
JULIE KLAUSNER: "Housewives.
TED LEO: Yeah.
Sure.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Sonja.
BETH HOYT: You have to drink.
Because you weren't sure.
TED LEO: All right, fair enough.
BETH HOYT: It's "Housewives.
All right.
You shared a man with that woman?
TED LEO: "Housewives.
JULIE KLAUSNER: "Girl, Interrupted."
BETH HOYT: It's from "Girl, Interrupted." All right.
You got Valium?
TED LEO: "Girl, Interrupted."
JULIE KLAUSNER: "Girl, Interrupted."
BETH HOYT: It's probably both, but it's from "Girl,
Interrupted." All right.
He's a bald guy with a little pecker and a fat wife.
TED LEO: "Housewives."
JULIE KLAUSNER: "Girl, Interrupted."
BETH HOYT: It's from "Girl, Interrupted." Drink it.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Oh, that's a hard one.
BETH HOYT: And the last one, I have never met a bunch of
women who had more fucking issues.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Oh, that's hard.
TED LEO: Gotta be "Housewives."
JULIE KLAUSNER: "Housewives?" "Girl, Interrupted."
BETH HOYT: Oh!
It's "Housewives."
JULIE KLAUSNER: It is?
BETH HOYT: But I mean, it's true, though.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Which one?
BETH HOYT: It's "Girl, Interrupted." I mean, it's
"Real Housewives."
JULIE KLAUSNER: What is the answer?
TED LEO: What are you saying?
You drink.
BETH HOYT: The I have never met a bunch of women had had
more fucking issues is from "Real Housewives".
They better have bleeped the F word.
How did we do?
We didn't really keep score.
JULIE KLAUSNER: No.
BETH HOYT: But did we drink a little?
TED LEO: I wasn't keeping score.
BETH HOYT: Did we have fun?
JULIE KLAUSNER: A little.
TED LEO: Absolutely, sure.
BETH HOYT: Thanks for playing Bitches Be Crazy.
We'll be right back.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Thanks for being crazy, bitches.

MALE SPEAKER: Oh, what?
Oh, you're gonna put it online, huh?
FEMALE SPEAKER: I'm not gonna put this online.
MALE SPEAKER: Oh, and everyone's gonna laugh at me.
Oh, look at the big failure.
Fails with the bees.
FEMALE SPEAKER: No, not at all.
MALE SPEAKER: Well, you know what the big failure is?
Our marriage.
That's the failure.
[SCREAMING]
20 million views?
ANDREW WK: Hello.
My name is Andrew WK, and you're watching My Damn
Channel Live.
Cheers, and party hard.

BETH HOYT: We're back.
So Julie, when I found out you were gonna be on the show, I
wanted to do something really special for you.
I'm a big fan, and I know from listening to your podcast that
you have a fascination with Tilda Swinton.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yes, I'm obsessed with her.
She is a nutbag, and I just think she's wonderful.
BETH HOYT: Yes.
OK, so um, what if I told view we happen to have connected
with Tilda Swinton, and we have her live via
satellite right now?
JULIE KLAUSNER: I would flip my shit.
BETH HOYT: OK, well, we're going to-- you
can interview her.
She's here.
Tilda?
There's Tilda.
Hey, Tilda.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Tilda?
Can she hear us?
BETH HOYT: I don't know.
Tilda?
She should be able to.
TILDA SWINTON: Pardon me.
When are we?
BETH HOYT: It's Wednesday.
You're on My Damn Channel Live.
I'm Beth, this is Julie.
Take it, Julie.
JULIE KLAUSNER: OK.
Well, again, Tilda Swinton.
Thank you so much for doing this.
It's really a treat.
We'll get into your career in a moment, but first I'd just
like to ask you about the name Tilda.
It's Pretty unusual.
How did your parents choose that name?
TILDA SWINTON: It's a funny story, really.
Most people do think it is short for Mathilda.
Actually, it is, it is long for Ilda.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Oh, that's counter intuitive.
So your parents just named you Ilda?
TILDA SWINTON: No, no.
I chose it for myself on my second solstice.
Mommy and poppy never gave me a name.
Not that they didn't love me, but woodland
cattle can't speak.
Most people know this.

JULIE KLAUSNER: OK.
So tell me, Tilda, when did you know that you wanted to be
an actress?
TILDA SWINTON: I am not an actress.
That's a pretend name for a job that does not exist.
I am a gardener of art.
I grow it.
I pluck it.
I eat it.

JULIE KLAUSNER: Then let's set aside acting for a moment.
Tilda Swinton, what are your other passions?
What makes you happiest in life?
TILDA SWINTON: Oh, yeah.

I love to swim.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Is that it?
Just swimming?
TILDA SWINTON: My kids give me delight, as well.
The boy--

names aren't important.
The boy and the girl, I like them very much.
Very much indeed.
JULIE KLAUSNER: OK, Tilda Swinton.
So, you've acted in many--
TILDA SWINTON: Oh.
Oh, oh, oh.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Sorry.
Right, you're not an actress.
Tilda, you've gardened so much art.
Do you have a favorite character that you've played?
TILDA SWINTON: Actually, yes.
I had a particularly enjoyable time playing Peter Green.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Peter, Peter Green?
I'm sorry, I don't--
which movie was this?
TILDA SWINTON: It was a puppetry exhibition I've been
curating with small bones of crows I've killed, and the fat
boy down the street.
It was a wonderful experiment until we
burned the church down.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Fair enough.
OK.
Let's talk about collaboration.
If you could work with anyone in the biz, who would it be?
TILDA SWINTON: I would love to work with Tina Fey.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Really?
Wow.
Are you a fan of "30 Rocks?"
TILDA SWINTON: Tina Fay is an ice flow in the north Atlantic
that I astral project to every third Sunday in Ramadan.
I sit on the ice.
On my bottom.
In my mind.
And let the fear of a dying world snake
its way up my vagina.
Through my pelvis.
To create a crystal of ecstasy.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Wow.

Well, thank you so much for joining us today, Tilda.
TILDA SWINTON: You're very welcome, Julie.
I'm ready to begin the interview whenever you are.
BETH HOYT: Wow.
I thought that went great.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yeah.
BETH HOYT: That was really exciting.
JULIE KLAUSNER: She's not as quirky as I heard she was
going to be.
BETH HOYT: I know what you mean.
Yeah.
Well, we're going to be playing Fuck, Marry, Kill pop
culture edition with Julie and Ted in just a second.
If you guys have good trios for us, put them in the
comments, we're going to use them.
Here's one you sent in.
We'll play this one out, and we'll see, you guys will see
how it's done.
OK, Daniel Craig, Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan.
JULIE KLAUSNER: You want to fuck Daniel Craig.
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
JULIE KLAUSNER: The end.
Done talking.
BETH HOYT: Right.
You guys get it.
And then, yeah, you marry Pierce?
JULIE KLAUSNER: No.
BETH HOYT: Sean?
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yes.
BETH HOYT: Yeah, you marry Sean.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yes, because he's Scottish.
BETH HOYT: Exactly.
JULIE KLAUSNER: And you hear that accent every morning when
you're drinking coffee.
BETH HOYT: I was just picturing going out for dinner
and being like--
JULIE KLAUSNER: It improves your life.
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
And it probably would improve your posture to
be with him, too.
I feel like you would just
JULIE KLAUSNER: Sure.
And you kill Pierce Brosnan because, did you see "Mama
Mia?"
BETH HOYT: Yeah, that's exactly why.
JULIE KLAUSNER: There need to be consequences.
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
He needs to pay for that.
And we're going to make him.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Someone does.
BETH HOYT: You guys got it?
Go nuts, we're going to be back in a minute.
But first it's a My Damn Channel
original video premiere.
It's the Jon Friedman Internet Program with Donald Trump.

FEMALE SPEAKER: (SINGING) It's the John Friedman Internet
Program on your world wide web.

DONALD TRUMP: You're tired.

FEMALE SPEAKER: (SINGING) It's the Jon Friedman Internet
Program on your world wide web.
FEMALE SPEAKER: Hey, guys.
We're the Wing Girls.
FEMALE SPEAKER: And watching My Damn Channel Live.

BETH HOYT: We're back with Julie Klausner and Ted Leo.
It's time for Fuck, Marry, Kill.
TED LEO: Can I just add that I would fuck Daniel Craig, too.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Everybody would.
BETH HOYT: Do you agree with marrying Sean Connery over
Pierce Brosnan?
TED LEO: Absolutely.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Right?
You don't want to wake up to Pierce Brosnan every day.
TED LEO: No, no.
Of course not.
JULIE KLAUSNER: It's about the day to day stuff.
BETH HOYT: [INAUDIBLE] today.
TED LEO: Yeah, exactly.
JULIE KLAUSNER: He's exhausting.
BETH HOYT: All the freckles that you didn't
expect early on.
TED LEO: Is he freckley?
JULIE KLAUSNER: I bet he is.
TED LEO: Under the shirt?
JULIE KLAUSNER: Or just like, one of those guys that looks
tan from a distance, and you get up close, and it's all
pointalism.
BETH HOYT: Yeah, we don't need that.
OK, remember, if you guys have good ones,
get them in the comments.
We've got a bunch to get us started.
We're going to take turns.
Here's the first one.
Lindsay Lohan, Courtney Love, Tara Reid.
I mean, my initial, my initial thought is that Tara
Reid's gotta die.
JULIE KLAUSNER: No.
TED LEO: I don't know.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Any of those, it would be a mercy killing
across the board, you know?
TED LEO: Yeah.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I can't say Courtney's full name because I
feel like she's like, Beetlejuice.
If you say it like, even once, she'll show up.
So I'm not going to regard that, but I would marry--
BETH HOYT: I would marry Lindsay, because I think she
has a second coming.
TED LEO: You think so?
JULIE KLAUSNER: You do?
That's optimistic.
But you think Tara's a lost cause?
BETH HOYT: God, for sure.
TED LEO: I would marry Courtney because I think she's
on her last legs.
BETH HOYT: Yeah, you're right.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Oh, and you want to inherit that sweet,
uh, that sweet, sweet publishing money?
TED LEO: I just, I feel bad about saying that.
JULIE KLAUSNER: No.
It's a--
no.
[INAUDIBLE].
BETH HOYT: We're here to hurt people.
TED LEO: Thank you.
BETH HOYT: Next comment.
This is a comment from YouTube, and this is from
pawneegoddess.
Ryan Gosling, George Clooney, James Franco.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I mean-- yeah.
TED LEO: I don't care.
I mean, I'm a Cloonatic, beyond that.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Are you?
TED LEO: Yeah, I am.
I'm pro Clooney.
JULIE KLAUSNER: What's your favorite Clooney movie?
BETH HOYT: So would you rather fuck him or marry him?
TED LEO: I want to do all three to him in one night.
One night.
JULIE KLAUSNER: That's "Ocean's 13," I think.
TED LEO: Yes, exactly.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I would marry Clooney to be the first one
that could like, claim that she liked, nailed him down.
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
JULIE KLAUSNER: And then who were the other two?
BETH HOYT: Did you really, though?
I mean, no one really knows.
TED LEO: Ryan Gosling and James Franco.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yeah, I'm done with Ryan Gosling.
I'm done with like, girls being like, isn't it
interesting that I have a crush on Ryan Gosling?
Because I'd kill him just to get those girls to shut up.
And then James Franco, why not?
It would be a project.
It would be an art project.
BETH HOYT: Absolutely.
That's the way he would see it, too.
Not that [INAUDIBLE]
it's just, you know, his view on everything, right?
It's all art.
TED LEO: He's an indicator for me of how old I am, because I
really don't know who, like--
JULIE KLAUSNER: You don't get him?
TED LEO: No, I just don't know, I don't know, I don't
think I've seen anything he's been in.
You know what I mean?
Like, it's that kind of, I feel like it's, I'm on some
other side of some line.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Ryan Gosling, or James Franco?
TED LEO: James Franco.
BETH HOYT: You will.
He's like all the little, a bunch of things.
JULIE KLAUSNER: He'll show up at your house one day.
It'll be like, something that he'll do [INAUDIBLE].
TED LEO: And then I will have to kill him.
JULIE KLAUSNER: That's your thing.
BETH HOYT: Not that we know if that happens, you know.
It wasn't said here.
Next comment from YouTube, this is
Cee-Lo, String, or Prince.
TED LEO: Well, obviously you want to bone Sting because
he's all that, the Tantric stuff, you know?
JULIE KLAUSNER: You have a week to spare?
TED LEO: Exactly.
Yeah, maybe you don't want to bone Sting, actually.
JULIE KLAUSNER: You do not want to bone String.
TED LEO: Lose your job.
BETH HOYT: Yeah, exactly.
TED LEO: You'd be evicted while you were having sex.
JULIE KLAUSNER: You'd miss so many meals.
I'd kill Sting.
Exactly, where's the food?
BETH HOYT: Yeah, right?
JULIE KLAUSNER: Fuck Prince.
Because it would have like, doves and sheer scarves.
TED LEO: I think it would anti-climactic, you know?
JULIE KLAUSNER: Well, no-one's going to climax.
I feel like there would be a lot of whispering.
TED LEO: I feel like there would be all this lead up to
it, and then you'd actually get down to it--
BETH HOYT: And he'd just be like, missionary,
and it would be over?
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yeah, right?
TED LEO: Yeah.
And he's really little, you know.
JULIE KLAUSNER: He is really little.
BETH HOYT: Cee-Lo might be the one to have sex with.
TED LEO: That's what I'm saying.
BETH HOYT: Because he's a giver.
Do you watch "The Voice?" He really, like, is into, I think
he might give just the right amount.
Like, not Sting give, but--
JULIE KLAUSNER: I would do what I had to do
to meet that cat.
That white cat he holds on that show.
BETH HOYT: That's what he's saying.
What?
JULIE KLAUSNER: It's a cute cat.
BETH HOYT: Here's the next comment from YouTube, and it's
from 3177OH.
Kourney, Khloe, Kim.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I can't even reference the KKK anymore.
I'm done.
I'm Kardasha-done.

Just can't.
I can't.
BETH HOYT: So we choose--
JULIE KLAUSNER: I'd fuck Kim.
I mean, what am I?
Made of stone?
Of course, what am I?
I'm not crazy.
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
But also, if you marry her, it's the same thing.
It's like she's on her last-- you know,
that won't last forever.
JULIE KLAUSNER: No.
Don't marry that.
Don't marry.
Don't do it.
BETH HOYT: Another comment we have, or another we have is
Tom Cruise, Charlie Sheen, John Travolta.
TED LEO: Whoa.
JULIE KLAUSNER: That's a funny combination.
TED LEO: I know, I know John would jerk me off.
We know this is a thing, so.
JULIE KLAUSNER: [INAUDIBLE].
BETH HOYT: Tom might do it no hands style.
I feel like Tom would be like-- or
something would happen.
JULIE KLAUSNER: He would give you a reverse
happy ending, remember?
He was like, oh, this masseuse, masseurs were like,
accusing him of first of all, coining the term
reverse happy ending.
Which doesn't, it didn't exist until he came along with it.
TED LEO: I love imagining that in like, a Vinny Barbarino
voice, that he'd be like, come on, man.
I'll jerk you off.

That's good.

JULIE KLAUSNER: I would marry him because he would never
touch me, and I could do what I wanted to do.
BETH HOYT: Right.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I would uh, kill Charlie Sheen, and uh,
fuck Tom Cruise.
Why not?
TED LEO: Sure.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yeah.
You'd be into it, even though--
BETH HOYT: That's a good solution.
JULIE KLAUSNER: It is what it is, you know?
It's a job.
It's a gig.
BETH HOYT: The next comment from YouTube is from
cryptwalken.
Katy Perry, Kesha, Taylor Swift.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Uh-huh.
TED LEO: I think--
BETH HOYT: I know.
For me, this is a no brainer.
You fuck Katy Perry.
TED LEO: Would you?
BETH HOYT: She knows some things.
You definitely kill Kesha.
TED LEO: Once again, same page.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Really?
BETH HOYT: And definitely marry Taylor Swift.
TED LEO: Let's see if we're three for three.
Yeah.
BETH HOYT: And then you can borrow her clothes, if ever
you could ever fit into them.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Like they would fit.
TED LEO: I could fit into her clothes.
BETH HOYT: Exactly.
JULIE KLAUSNER: You might, you might.
BETH HOYT: No, but I mean, that's just the things that I
would cross over.
Cardigans, maybe?
Borrow her lipstick.
That stuff stays on forever.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Oh, the Cover Girl stuff?
Doesn't she promote that stuff?
BETH HOYT: Probably.
JULIE KLAUSNER: She and Queen Latifah.
Why are they never in the same shot together?
That wouldn't look--
be like two different--
BETH HOYT: Yeah, that's just not.
TED LEO: I'm a, I'm a boy.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I know.
BETH HOYT: So what is, what's your solution?
JULIE KLAUSNER: The same one as yours.
He agrees.
TED LEO: It's the same one.
JULIE KLAUSNER: He just doesn't know
from Cover Girl ads.
TED LEO: Exactly.
BETH HOYT: Oh, you can't fault him for that.
What do you, is yours?
JULIE KLAUSNER: I'll defer to the floor.
I mean, I would love to kill Katy Perry, just so I could
feel the splatter of sugar in my face.
But I don't know.
You guys seem to know what you're talking about.
TED LEO: Not really.
BETH HOYT: I do.
I'm an expert at this.
We have another one.
This is Robin Williams, Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg.
JULIE KLAUSNER: The comic relief three.
TED LEO: Whoa.
Wow.
Oh my god.
That's--
JULIE KLAUSNER: That's a tough one.
TED LEO: That is really tough.
JULIE KLAUSNER: You marry Whoopi, you fuck Robin, and
you kill Billy.
That's what I would do.
TED LEO: Yeah, that's a good, that's a good plan.
Yeah.
You don't want to, you don't want to fuck Billy Crystal.
He would do like, weird voices.
And you know, like, his characters.
BETH HOYT: He'd do the balloon man character.
TED LEO: Jazz man, character, you know?
(IN JAZZ MAN VOICE) That's real good, man.
Horrible.
BETH HOYT: Right.
That is not--
JULIE KLAUSNER: It's not as horrible as when he actually
puts on, you know, brown face to do it.
He doesn't go full black face.
Unless he does.
TED LEO: Maybe he does.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I might be wrong.
BETH HOYT: We don't need to find out out.
TED LEO: That's what happens in the bedroom.
He take it to the next step.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Or he does Mr. Saturday Night.
TED LEO: And then he switches it up at the very last second.
You're like, you're ready to blow, and he goes, I hate when
that happens.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I love that '80s SNL, like, the Fernando.
TED LEO: Yes.
Oh my god, Fernando was really [INAUDIBLE].
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yeah.
So the answer is no.
Get him out of the way.
TED LEO: So many harmless scenarios to think about.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Possibilities.
BETH HOYT: The good thing is we have one option, which is
to kill someone.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yeah.
BETH HOYT: That's really--
JULIE KLAUSNER: Robin Williams, I
think still looks good.
I think he looks good.
TED LEO: Sure.
JULIE KLAUSNER: He looks hairy.
BETH HOYT: Hairy is the word that's just, I just picture
his forearms, and being like, where are you?
JULIE KLAUSNER: I don't mind that.
BETH HOYT: I could, I can French braid.
I'd love to try a fish tail braid on his arm.
That would be fashionable.
OK, you guys.
We are minutes away from open comments.
Anything you've ever wanted to ask Julie or
Ted, now is your chance.
Put them in the comments.
We'll be right back.

STEPHEN SEIDEL: Some people work at home.

You're hot as shit.
FEMALE SPEAKER: Yeah.
MATT MCMANUS: There's no question there.
FEMALE SPEAKER: I'm sweaty, if that's what you mean.

FEMALE SPEAKER: OK.
MATT MCMANUS: Hold on, hold on, I gotta call HR.

MATT MCMANUS: Yeah.
Do you like my accordion?
FEMALE SPEAKER: Can I help you?
MATT MCMANUS: Yeah.
I'm uh, I'm just getting this girl's number with my

Hold on one second.
FEMALE SPEAKER: [INAUDIBLE].
FEMALE SPEAKER: 707.
MATT MCMANUS: Uhuh.
FEMALE SPEAKER: 328.
MATT MCMANUS: Uhuh.
Hello?
What the f did I tell you?
The bandaid on the back of your neck?
The briefcase.
MALE SPEAKER: No.
MALE SPEAKER: Oh, jeez.
Just another day at the office.
-I told you Porno Pictionary was the way to go.
-Hey, why don't we kick it up a notch and make this into a
swingers party?
-Oh, yeah.
Yeah.
-I choose Nancy.
-What?
-That little filly.

-What are you talking about?
-For the swingers party.
I thought we were choosing up, like draft picks.
No?
-No.
That was a joke, Steve.

BETH HOYT: OK, open comments is coming up as soon as I get
your questions in for Ted and Julie in the chat.
First of all, you didn't think we were going to spend half an
hour with Ted Leo, and not get him to perform a
song for us, did you?
What are you playing for us, Ted?
TED LEO: Uh, I'm, I don't need to talk into this, do I?
BETH HOYT: Do it for fun.
For effect.
TED LEO: I am going to play a new song that is yet
untitled for now.
We'll say that.
We'll call it Untitled.
BETH HOYT: Here is Untitled.
Ted Leo, everyone.
[MUSIC PLAYING - TED LEO, "UNTITLED"]

BETH HOYT: Ted Leo, everyone!
TED LEO: Thanks.
BETH HOYT: Thank you, Ted Leo.
Comments are next, stick around.

-Hi, welcome to the building.
-Thanks.
I'm Sean, this is Carol, and you are some sort of cult?
-Accurate.
-Tell me, have you and your wife
considered having a child?
-You mean, like for you guys?
You guys are satanists!
-Totally.
Count us in.
-Just like that?
-Sean, can you imagine me carrying the spawn of Satan?
-Your sister's going to be so jealous.
Let's call her now.
-Yeah.
-That felt a little too easy.

BETH HOYT: That was awesome.
TED LEO: Thank you.
JULIE KLAUSNER: That was great.
TED LEO: I had a little, my string got caught on my thing.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Oh, it did?
BETH HOYT: That's, that's what I--
I don't know how.
That was amazing.
TED LEO: Nice.
BETH HOYT: I think we'll forgive that.
It's open season in the comments, you guys.
Let's hop into your comments.

Wow.
OK, my first question.
So you guys, I know you're friends, but have you worked
together, together before your podcast?
Or what have you done together?
TED LEO: I'm not so sure.
BETH HOYT: You knew that you jived.
TED LEO: We guested on other people's things together a
number of times.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yeah, but that was our first official
collaboration.
TED LEO: Yeah.
BETH HOYT: Good.
It's a lovely one.
JULIE KLAUSNER: It's the beginning of a beautiful
friendship.
BETH HOYT: We have a comment from Twitter.
A question for you guys.
This is from Dillon Font.
For the next "How Was Your Week Live," any musical
previews of planned musical numbers?
JULIE KLAUSNER: Well, we'll say that
it's a Halloween show.
TED LEO: Yes.
JULIE KLAUSNER: So there might be some, you know, scary
selections.
So, you know, the squeamish, the squeamish need not attend.
TED LEO: Right.
BETH HOYT: That is so exciting.
Yeah.
And you're telling everyone to come in costume.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yes.
There will be a costume contest.
Ted and I will be dressed up as well.
BETH HOYT: Do you have you outfits planned?
I'm sure you do.
TED LEO: Planned, yeah.
JULIE KLAUSNER: We do.
BETH HOYT: Do you have it bought and everything?
JULIE KLAUSNER: It's coming together.
TED LEO: Yeah.
JULIE KLAUSNER: It's coming together.
BETH HOYT: I went to a Halloween store yesterday, and
it was a Tuesday, and it was already crazy.
You guys got to get out there now.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yeah.
TED LEO: Ricky.
Find a Ricky's near you.
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
JULIE KLAUSNER: They're filled with garbage people, though.
People buying like, slutty Strawberry Shortcake.
BETH HOYT: I know.
JULIE KLAUSNER: We're both going to be dressed up as
slutty Strawberry Shortcake.
BETH HOYT: Oh, spoiler alert.
Here's a comment from YouTube.
A question for you guys.
This is from [INAUDIBLE].
If y'all were host and musical guest on SNL, what kinds of
sketches would you hope they'd pitch to you?
What would you pitch to them?
TED LEO: I would hope that as musical guest, they would
allow me to play some music.
BETH HOYT: That's a good one.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yeah, but you'd--
BETH HOYT: But you also, we saw some of your character
impressions.
TED LEO: Of course I would want to, but I don't, as far
as what I would want them to pitch?
BETH HOYT: Do you have a celebrity impression that you
know you're, that you ace?
Other than your Billy Crystal in bed?
TED LEO: I do the other guys in my band really well.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I just want to do anything
where Ted's in drag.
Because he commits to it fully.
He commits to anything fully, but yeah.
TED LEO: Yolo, you know.
BETH HOYT: It's so true.
JULIE KLAUSNER: You should start a cover
band called Yolo Tango.
TED LEO: Tango, an all drag Yo La Tango revue.
BETH HOYT: It happened here, you guys.
Julie, what about you?
Is there like, well, you've done a lot of--
JULIE KLAUSNER: I would, uh, I would pitch any of my crazy
characters.
Likely lady with a glass of wine.
BETH HOYT: OK.
Here's a comment from YouTube.
This is from peyton86.
Julie, why is Jimmy Jazz not with you?
Also, do you know if "Smash" is coming back for a second
season, and your thoughts on possible plot lines?
JULIE KLAUSNER: Jimmy Jazz is not with me because he is a
house cat, and he is asleep.
And it would be inappropriate of me to bring him everywhere,
not to mention affected.
But "Smash" is shooting season two.
I saw like, signs in my neighborhood.
And there's all these guest stars, like Jennifer Hudson
and Sean Hayes.
And I can't wait.
I got Ted into "Smash" last season.
TED LEO: Yeah.
I spent an entire weekend watching
the whole first season.
BETH HOYT: Yeah, me too.
Because Loretta was on, and she's--
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yeah, yeah.
And as far as possible plot lines, I hope one in which Ted
Leo is hired to write a Green Day style musical.
TED LEO: I like this situation.
BETH HOYT: That's what we're all gonna look for.
TED LEO: And pisses people off, and Angelica Huston
throws a drink in his face, and then cleans it up gently.
Like, dabs him with a Bounty paper towel.
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
Just like that.
But that's a real life hanky, you guys.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I like that you keep a hanky.
BETH HOYT: Me too.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Gentlemanly.
I like it.
TED LEO: I got to pick that up from one of my grandfathers.
He was a--
JULIE KLAUSNER: Father's side or mother's side?
TED LEO: Mother's side.
I'm debating on what to say about this.
Let's just say that in some ways, he was that kind of a
hanky wearing guy.
BETH HOYT: Interesting.
OK.
TED LEO: In other ways, he was anything but.
BETH HOYT: Really?
JULIE KLAUSNER: Interesting.
BETH HOYT: You took the hanky.
Memorabilia.
JULIE KLAUSNER: No, that means something else.
BETH HOYT: I love that.
Here's another comment from YouTube, and it is from
mcglobulen.
What are your favorite web shows or podcasts lately?
JULIE KLAUSNER: Do you listen to podcasts?
TED LEO: I do.
You know, I stock up on podcasts, and then
I catch up on tour.
And obviously, there is a wealth of "How Was Your Week"
to go through.
And there is the classic "Best Show" gems.
You know, bits from the past of "Best Show." I think that,
this is probably going to be obvious coming from me, but I
think that what Scharpling and those guys are doing with "Low
Times" is a really, really good thing.
And I like, I like Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer's
podcast a lot.
BETH HOYT: She's now gonna be on MTV.
A TV show.
TED LEO: Yeah, that's right.
Yeah, yeah.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I just started to listening to "Throwing
Shade" is a really funny podcast, Bryan Safi.
BETH HOYT: Oh, cool.
JULIE KLAUSNER: And you know, the usual.
You got your "This American Life," and so forth and so on.
But web shows, I need more recommendations.
I don't really watch as many of those.
Like dog videos.
BETH HOYT: You guys, throw them in the commends.
Let us know.
There's that.
JULIE KLAUSNER: You've seen Maymo the lemon beagle.
You seen those?
TED LEO: No.
JULIE KLAUSNER: There's this beagle.
BETH HOYT: Oh my gosh.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I'll tell you.
So there's this beagle named Maymo, and he, uh--
TED LEO: Doesn't do lemon parties, right?
JULIE KLAUSNER: No, they like, what are those?
Are they filthy?
BETH HOYT: Yeah, what what is a lemon--
JULIE KLAUSNER: Really?
Now I want to know.
TED LEO: Look it up.
JULIE KLAUSNER: OK, I will.
Anyway, they cut a lemon open, they give it to him, and he
like, takes a bite, and then he like, runs back.
And then he like, takes another bite,
and he barks at it.
And he just like, it's the best.
BETH HOYT: So he like, love hates the lemon?
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yeah, he doesn't understand that like,
something that looks like it could be fun to eat is sour.
So he just reacts to it in this really fascinating,
adorable way.
And I spent a lot of time watching that.
BETH HOYT: I'll check that that out for sure.
I fed my niece a lemon.
She's like one.
I thought it would be really funny to watch her.
She loved it.
This wasn't supposed to happen.
JULIE KLAUSNER: That's the sign of a witch.
BETH HOYT: All right, another comment from
YouTube is from MrLakin4.
Guy Fieri, Adam Richman, Anthony Bourdain.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Is that a comment, or a
Fuck, Marry, Kill?
BETH HOYT: It's another one.
Just to [INAUDIBLE].
TED LEO: Is he suggesting that in order, it's Guy Fieri--
JULIE KLAUSNER: I got dibs on the second guy, because I
don't know who that is.
BETH HOYT: Yeah, I know.
Who's Adam Richmond?
TED LEO: That's probably another celebrity chef.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Jonathan Richmond's douchebag brother.
BETH HOYT: Let's put him against Alan Rickman, and do
Fuck, Marry, Kill with that.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Oh, Alan Rickman?
BETH HOYT: Let's pretend like it's him.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Oh, I would do anything to Alan Rickman.
I find him irresistible.
BETH HOYT: Does that mean you'd marry him?
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yes.
TED LEO: I would marry Alan Rickman, yeah.
BETH HOYT: For sure.
Of those three?
Yeah.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Kill the other two.
The other two.
BETH HOYT: That's not an option.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Well, I'd kill one and serve it to the other
one
TED LEO: Ah, while fucking.
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
TED LEO: Good idea.
BETH HOYT: Yeah, yeah.
I like that.
JULIE KLAUSNER: You don't want to let the
drumstick go to waste.
BETH HOYT: Yeah, let's kill Guy.
There's much more to go around if we kill Guy.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yeah, but Anthony Bourdain, I think
doesn't get enough hate.
Everybody like, thinks he's like, the second coming of
Jesus Christ.
BETH HOYT: It's true.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I don't know, he gets on my nerves.
BETH HOYT: Yep.
No--
Another comment on YouTube is cryptwalken.
Julie, if you could recast "Steel Magnolias" using
current actors, who would you pick?
No racial, no racial tendencies here with this one.
JULIE KLAUSNER: No, none at all.
I would pick the exact cast of the 1989 version, because I
don't believe in my heart that you could
improve upon that ensemble.
BETH HOYT: It's so true.
TED LEO: They're all still around.
JULIE KLAUSNER: They are still around, thank god,
and doing very well.
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I would love to see them do a reunion.
TED LEO: Yeah.
Steeler Magnolias.
BETH HOYT: Steel Magnolier.
TED LEO: Steelier Magnolias.
BETH HOYT: That's--
JULIE KLAUSNER: Do it at the Magnolia bakery, and then
we'll watch Magnolia, and the part where Jason Robards dies,
we'll fast forward over it.
Because it's, I just can't with that part.
BETH HOYT: It's real tense.
JULIE KLAUSNER: We'll fast forward through that, yeah.
TED LEO: It was intense.
BETH HOYT: Here we go.
Another comment from YouTube.
It's from James [INAUDIBLE].
What are some upcoming guests on "How
Was Your Week" podcasts?
What are the criteria for a great guest?
JULIE KLAUSNER: Criteria for a great guest is that they be,
that they be engaging.
The same criteria as any, I'm sure you've had guests that
just sort of stand here and don't do anything at all.
BETH HOYT: No.
JULIE KLAUSNER: You're all great, they're all great.
BETH HOYT: No.
If we, if that ever happened, we'd be like,
take shots of something.
Alcohol or food.
JULIE KLAUSNER: This is technically a bar.
It's not even a web show, is it?
BETH HOYT: That's our secret.
JULIE KLAUSNER: An upcoming guest.
I have Andrew McCarthy on this week.
BETH HOYT: Oh, cool.
JULIE KLAUSNER: That's exciting.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Yeah.
And it's a big deal to my 12-year-old
self, who would be--
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Freaking out if, you know.
BETH HOYT: Where did you meet him to record it?
JULIE KLAUSNER: [INAUDIBLE]
office.
In Billy [INAUDIBLE] office.
TED LEO: Wow.
JULIE KLAUSNER: And he sent me an email later, and he was
like, did you fuck him on my box of Cliff bars?
And I said,no, I--
BETH HOYT: Wish.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I tried, but, yeah.
TED LEO: What's your favorite Andrew McCarthy character?
JULIE KLAUSNER: Blaine.
TED LEO: Yeah.
No, Steph.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Oh, Steph?
No, no, Steph was James Spader.
He was Blaine.
TED LEO: He was Blaine?
Oh, you're right.
I stand corrected.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I thought they were both super sexy.
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
That's a tough choice.
TED LEO: Yeah, because Blaine is like a major [INAUDIBLE].
JULIE KLAUSNER: I know, and I just found him
irresistible in that.
But I even like, I even l him in "Mannequin," and like,
"Weekend At Bernie's," I didn't care.
I just thought he was just--
BETH HOYT: Well, once you have, once you have a
heartthrob like that, they don't-- so did it change,
though, like this week, was it?
JULIE KLAUSNER: It was weird.
It was definitely intense.
I mean, you don't meet your crushes, like, 20 years later
in your life, usually.
So when you do, it's always a little, a little odd.
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
JULIE KLAUSNER: It wasn't like Davey Jones
took me to the prom.
BETH HOYT: Save that for the next prom.
JULIE KLAUSNER: What were you going to say?
TED LEO: I was going to ask about how you
feel about James Spader.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I think he's sexy.
TED LEO: You like James Spader, too?
BETH HOYT: Yeah.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I think most women my age do, because they
did grow up with him in that, and then there was like,
"Secretary," which was very--
BETH HOYT: Yes.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Exciting.
TED LEO: What was the movie he was in with Susan Sarandon,
too, like "White Palace?"
JULIE KLAUSNER: "White Palace."
TED LEO: Yeah.
JULIE KLAUSNER: White Castle.
TED LEO: White Castle, the movie.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Where they eat those disgusting--
did they make those burgers in a dishwasher?
Did they just put like, some ground, raw meat?
TED LEO: I think they steam the little onions in the
dishwasher.
JULIE KLAUSNER: In the dishwasher.
BETH HOYT: I remember once I didn't eat meat for a long
time, and then I like, broke the fast with White Castle.
It was like, midnight.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Why would you do that to your body?
Oh, that explains it.
All right.
BETH HOYT: And it was such a, but it was exactly.
I was like, why didn't I save it for tomorrow?
JULIE KLAUSNER: Did you throw up?
BETH HOYT: I should have.
You know?
But no, I kept it in there, and just
relished that mistake.
TED LEO: I haven't eaten meat since 1988.
BETH HOYT: Wow.
TED LEO: And I can still immediately call up
the flavor of it.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Like Proustian kind of.
Men like the White Castle stuff more than--
I don't think it's for girls.
BETH HOYT: Not this man.
It's not for girls.
White Castle's not for ladies.
JULIE KLAUSNER: But if you can still evoke it, that means it
has like, a special spot in your brain.
BETH HOYT: A good or bad spot.
BETH HOYT: You guys, that's a perfect, that's a
perfect way to end it.
That's like the key, that's like what we've been talking--
what we didn't get to is how White Castle hits the
different sexes.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Parts of your brain.
TED LEO: Interesting.
Yeah.
JULIE KLAUSNER: I do believe that.
BETH HOYT: And that's all the time we have, you guys.
Juli and Ted, thank you so much for being here.
JULIE KLAUSNER: Thanks for having us.
BETH HOYT: So you're doing another big live event.
"How Was Your Week Live" is sold out already.
JULIE KLAUSNER: So there's no point in plugging it.
You should plug your tour.
