In this episode…
Ken, Mandy and the Peanut Gallery (Ben, MaryKate and Sarah) sound off on the MusicNOW festival and how it’s oddly tied to the Twilight franchise, like seemingly everything else nowadays. They share favorite moments and Mandy and MaryKate have an uncannily-timed freakout at the mere suggestion of Andy Samberg being nearby.
Ken’s discovered that, now that he’s off his post-mugging-beatdown medication, the best way to recover is with Twin Peaks marathons. We’re not sure this is doctor-sanctioned, but anyway, they discuss the beloved show, and Mandy reveals that the young Kyle MacLachlan and his solid, cartoon-Mountie chin is the real reason why she watches. By the way, if anyone wants to rock out to the theme to Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, we’ve got our copy of Pure Moods right here.
Speaking of Pure Moods, hope you’re ready for some New Age jams, ‘cause this podcast is chock-full of them. Okay, that’s a lie. Scared you, huh? But there is something for everyone. Proclaim to the world that you are indeed not a robot with an enchanting, swelling track from Marina and the Diamonds called, appropriately enough, “I Am Not a Robot.” Chillax to Twin Sister’s “I Want a House,” which channels a swanky lounge vibe for a solid two minutes or more. Then, shake it all off to get lost in the beeping, electronic fuzz of “Baptism” by Crystal Castles and dance with a smile on your face to Deloran’s “Stay Close.”
And what would Milling About be without a call from Joshua? Your first thought upon seeing a bear roaming your suburban sidewalk might be to call the proper authorities, or perhaps to grab your camera for some hilarious footage for the evening news (seriously, what’s with all the funny bear videos on the local news?), but not Joshua. No sir.
All that and more! Oh yeah, and if you were wondering what an episode of Milling About would sound like as a remix created in the midst of a fever dream, we’ve got your answer (but why were you wondering that?).
