Episode 9: Josie and the Poddycasts

Published on February 17th, 2011

In this spoiler-light episode, we throw any perceptions of us as masculine men to the wind as we discuss the movie Josie and the Pussycats. From there we move on to modern pop music, where we touch on Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and the merits of Ke$ha. And yes, we’re serious.

Episode 9: Josie and the Poddycasts

An mp3 version of this week’s podcast can be found here.

And you get a collection of videos and images that we discuss in the podcast. First, we have Du Jour’s classic hit single, “Backdoor Lover.”

As discussed, here is perhaps the most self-aware video of the boy band era, NSYNC’s “It’s Gonna Be Me,” which features the group as a literally packaged product.

Alex discusses the Backstreet Boys’ video for “The Call” as every 90s David Fincher movie all rolled up into one. You can be the judge. Also, be sure to notice Howie D’s sweet hair.

Ke$ha in the “Tik Tok” video featured her as what Alex thinks should have remained as her image: the hungover, time-killing, basement-partying female hipster. Crack a PBR and see if he’s right.

Andre 3000 of OutKast (aka the one who made “Hey Ya!”) did a collaboration with our girl Ke$ha that we are totally not making up. Here’s the proof.

James had no idea who Willa Ford was, which means he must not have been watching a lot of music videos in the summer of 2001. Ford’s career amounted to her being a one non-hit wonder, as evidenced by this video where she apparently can’t afford a full pair of pants.

And finally, Ke$ha’s dress made out of a Lost Boys VHS tape.
