EP70: Public Restrooms, Major Life Events, Saltburn, Squishmallows, & Tunnels in New York
Welcome BACK to the Awful Vibes Podcast, Episode 70.  We're back.  It has been a long, unplanned hiatus, that we do explain in this episode.  As we explain during the episode, while the podcast hasn't been recording, it doesn't mean we've stopped thinking of things to talk about.  Episode 70 is a mish-mosh of our fleeting thoughts over the past few months - enjoy.   Taylor and I spent New Years Eve together, and I got mistaken for another asian guy (00:00:49).  Subsequently, Taylor has also recently had a few cases of the look-a-likes (00:04:03)   Why we've been away, and big life events that have transpired since then.  TLDR: for me, new living.  For Taylor, new job, one less tattoo (00:06:20)   (00:14:10) - Thanksgiving food.  Yes its January, but... we missed this.  So here we go.  Specifically, corn casserole, a dish that I have been introduced to during my time in Texas - and scalloped potatoes, but specifically, with corn flakes as a topping   (00:16:48) - Came out a long time ago, but we give our two scents on the remake of 'Mean Girls.'  Probably won't see it.   (00:19:40) - Brief touch on a movie in theaters we DO want to see, 'The Iron Claw.'  Followed up by discussion on the long-awaited Sydney Sweeney, Glen Powell rom-com, 'Anyone But You'   Taylor informs me of the 'veneer epidemic.'  That celebrities are unnecessarily getting veneers when they had perfectly normal, good-looking teeth to begin with (00:21:17)   Do you think you are closer to the Michelin Man, or a Michelin 5-star chef? (00:25:16)   (00:27:11) Is driving an extra couple miles for a 5-cent difference per gallon worth it?   Isn't it embarrassing when you go to a restaurant for the first time, and you go to the bathroom, and you go to enter and it appears locked, so you wait, and a line forms, and eventually it has been so long that person tries for the door, and it turns out it wasn't locked the door just gets a little jammed?  Totally didn't happen to me, happened to a friend, very embarrassing (00:29:27)   Followed up by a scalding hot take, I feel bad for people who can't use public restrooms because some of the best 'nature is calling' experiences simply HAVE to take place in public restrooms out of pure necessity (00:32:06)   (00:36:52) - When did society just decide adults can't have stuffed animals?  Is right to bear Squishmallows and Jellycats fine as an adult?   Okay back to the bathroom, sorry for all the bathroom talk.  If you walk in on someone in the bathroom, its not embarrassing.  It should be embarrassing for the person IN the restroom, not the walker-inner (00:43:23)   (00:44:42) - A report came out that Shannon Sharpe brushes his teeth 7 times a day.... and I ask again, why do we care so much about celebrity hygiene???   High thought, Maria and Mariah are virtually the same name, differentiated by the sole addition of a singular letter which is also silent.  wtf. (00:47:00)   LMAO back to the bathroom.  I recently moved into a new place, and I don't have a shower curtain (didn't need one at the old place) and I may just never hang one (00:50:03)   We're late on this.  But frankly, we're late on most of the topics of discussion today.  Saltburn.  (00:52:47)   (00:55:03) - How much is too much for a single large pizza?   On the topic of food.... why has restaurants preparing food like salt bae become a staple, and are rich people that dumb and bored they like this garbage?  (00:56:58)   Uncet Gems star Julia Fox wrote a book, and Taylor listened to the vocal fry audiobook to report back so the rest of us don't have to (00:57:50)   Tunnels in New York (01:00:46)   As always THANK YOU for listening.  We are BACK now, and have a new schedule.  Expect new episodes for Wednesday mornings!  As always, if you have a suggestion for a topic you'd like to hear, DM us on Instagram @AwfulVibesPodcast

EP67: Trader Joe’s, Waxing Arm Pits, & Peripheral Vision
Welcome back to the Awful Vibes Podcast, Episode 67.  The World Series is in full swing, and my local team, the Texas Rangers, are in it.  We were at a bar watching Game 1 the other night, when we heard that Capital One will donate $1,000 to the Jackie Robinson foundation if the game ends in a walk-off.  We talk about how embarrassingly low of a donation that is (00:00:34)   After being a vocal hater for, what feels like my entire life, I went to Trader Joe's.  I share my experience, what I got, how it tasted, and why I lied to the cashier (00:06:00)   I share a song I haven't heard in a minute, and Taylor reveals she thinks the artists is actually the least talented person on planet Earth (00:12:28)   I realized before recording today that my side-eye/peripheral vision when I turn my head to the right is way worse than when I turn to the left, and I'm not sure what to think (00:14:13)   Do you wax your arm pits?  (00:15:19)   After being over-served, Taylor mustered up the strength to absolutely annihilate 18 holes with her dad and her uncle - her uncle vocally was surprised and said she notably was not as bad as he thought she was going to be.  Progress, ladies and gentlemen (00:19:52)   We end of with surprise topics - but with a twist.  We each made a list of 10 things, which we read in a randomized order, and need them put back in a certain order.  Taylor asked me to rank ten Halloween movies by their IMDB rating, and I ask Taylor to rank 10 Katy Perry YouTube music videos by views (00:28:30)   As always thank you for listening.  If you have a suggestion for a topic you'd like to hear, DM us on Instagram @AwfulVibesPodcast
