It’s true. The band Chumbawamba is no more. The group officially split this week, reminding everyone once more of a simpler time where we learned that, if you get knocked down, you should get back up again, and nothing can keep you down. Makes sense coming from self-proclaimed anarchists. But I digress.
Adam and I had a great time this week with returning guests Emily Dyess and Andrew Nelson, where we broke this news to everyone. No more new Chumbawamba singles. To bridge that to a Mic Check, I had everyone talk about their favorite words, based on their phonetics. But that’s not all, right Billy Mays?
That’s right. Before we got the Mic Check under way, we also had a great pre-episode conversation where we just let the recording program run as we discussed a mess of stuff, including the acquisition of Nerdist Industries by Legendary Entertainment, and the new rules that will be included in the new versions of Scrabble that will be released soon. As a part of the Nerdist discussion, I also introduced everyone to “Chris Hardwick’s All-Star Celebrity Bowling”, which is available on YouTube (and there’s a link on the episode page).
