Hello, readers. Let's just say, on this episode?

Fashion! Politics! Entertainment! This episode of LC kind of has all those things! What it definitely has is best in the biz guest Nicole Byer! Nicole and the boys get into how we'd do the pandemic differently, escape room techniques, how all male flight attendants are gay, reveal the REAL MCU, and anticipate Cowboy Carter just days before its release. Also, what it feels like to fly in a film, selling the joke, Goodfellas, Oda Mae Brown culture, Christian Siriano, Jenifer Lewis's recent accident and recovery, how Madame Web was maybe good, how Fed Ex can kinda suck and the battle between water based and silicon based personal lubricant. All this, and Nicole demands Matt give her the information of a bad, harmful psychic that made him distrust Bowen Yang. Go see The American Society of Magical Negroes in the CINEMA! See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
The time has come. The sisters have been teasing this episode for weeks and we will finally get the answer to the most pressing question that has ever been posited on this podcast: was that really Mandy Moore's Xanga? Scoot to the edge of your seats, readers. She has arrived.   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Also, a lil bit o' Dune, Royal Family nonsense, Madonna in concert, Problemista, Oh, Mary!, inseam culture, the problem of pants, and how Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth is actually so good it's inconvenient.

On fair Las Cultch, where we set our scene: It's Matt's birthday, Bowen is straight and there is culture to be caught up on. Traitors is recapped, Kristen Johnston is praised, and what truly makes a great sequel is debated. All this, Beyoncé's acting era, recent Bravo legal drama, and Drag Race thoughts. Also, is "insecurity" being overused as an excuse? Is Boba Fett just a big bitch? Did YOU vote? Much to discuss this week on LAS CULTURISTAS... the PODCAST! It's about to be a-- what?!-- gayFIGHT!

This installment of Las Cultch delivers on the promise of the premise. Yeah, we saw the Super Bowl. Usher? We've heard of him. Taylor and Travis? Honey, we're well aware. And hey, how about this for one word: Beyoncé. All of this and more (such as The Traitors, Lady Gaga as a sports fan, Feud: Capote vs. The Swans, and the place of horses in culture) is discussed by Matt Rogers and Bowen Yang. The latter of those two even starred in a Super Bowl commercial, in a world where movie trailers count as commercials. That movie trailer? Wicked! In the words of The Wicked Witch of the West, what a world! Who do you think is next to slay a Super Bowl halftime show? Do you think T Swift's fame has become too much for one human being? Are you a tortured poet and do you have a department? Many questions to ponder and topics to discuss on this ep! Solargenic. Photogenic. Shoot.

Precisely Matt!You articulated exactly how I feel about the movie.It was a bunch of ill selected glimpses into their lives that were strung together to make this movie (Maestro).Completely left me just as I came into the movie; not knowing anything meaningful about either character!And if indeed it was a love story and not a biopic, then why name it Maestro? I thought I was going to see a whole other movie than what was presented. I wanted to like it. Unfortunately, it left me hanging.WAI,yes!

Why is it that if you can camp it up, you can be a celebrity in spite of having no talent?

So I listen a lot and I hear the declarations you make based on your best guesses and shrug. It’s okay. Now you’ve made me have to go Boomer on you. It’s widely known that “Imagine” was not written in California but at Tittenhurst Park in England. Many films show it all happening. As for the dismissal of “Imagine there’s no heaven” as the murmurings of an LSD trip, NO. In 1971 it’s almost a miracle that got airplay. It was sacrilege. Some respect is in order.

I keep coming back to this podcast. It is hard to follow, though. Talks to fast, not clear, over talk, sounds alike. Steps on names. Who is that laughing like a dolphin?
