Listen: Mariah Carey, Stephen Thompson, Audie Christina discussed on Pop Culture Happy Hour
"And every week what is making us happy this week. Stephen Thompson, what is making you happy this week a couple of weeks ago. My daughter came home from a thrift store excursion with an armload of Saudi VDB's. So imagine my surprise when I discovered that. She also loves a French cartoon on net. Flicks called miraculous tales of lady bug and Caton warr, which is this kitty cartoon about to crimefighting teenagers who won has a crush on the other, but they're also secretly superheroes who fight crime together. And somehow don't recognize each other even though they're identical. It is formulaic and silly and weirdly mockup all and yet also very skillfully made. And for whatever reason my entire family four people with four very different interests have come together to really get a kick out of this show, and it kind of remind. And me every once in a while. I would sit and watch it and think cheese, these cliches or this trope that they kind of just hammer episode after episode after episode of this villain who's very one note. And I think I don't know if this is as good as it could be, and then I thought you know, what when I was a kid I loved a TV show called the wacky races. Which was this very formulaic show. And I realized like I love that show. I attached to that show because it's in my childhood and seeing my daughter in particular knowing that she will attach to this very silly show in the same way felt like circle of life. But also man as a family, we're getting a kick out of the silliest cartoon, two seasons of it are on Netflix. If you've got kids, it's very very fun. I had never heard of it. But of course, found that it naturally has a very devoted fan base. It is called miraculous tales of lady, bug and catch and war. Thank you very much. Stephen. Thompson sounds wonderful. Audie cornish. What is making you happy? This week two things. One is Missy Elliott and Mike. Jerry being nominated to the songwriters hall of fame. I'm big UCLA advan, we're heading into Christmas as we know. Mariah at Penn one of the great if not the only truly modern Christmas song, which is about to hit you in your ear buds wherever you go for the next five weeks. All I want for Christmas, which leads to the second thing, which is the hashtag Justice for glitter with was like Mariah Carey superfan. Social media effort to kind of revive her worst selling album and her I think it was like her personal bottom in terms of rehab Loyd. Yeah. Career wise for the movie glitter, which came out, I think in two thousand one well over the weekend it hit number one on the I tunes charts. Even though you can't get it on streaming. It was like on word of mouth only. And honestly, I just think that kind of thing is funny. So has Shagged Justice for glitter. Mariah go back like babies. Pacifies? Well, no Audie. I had a lot of butts on that. Thank you so much Audie Christina. What is making you happy? This week the podcast who weekly has made me happy for many weeks now, and it is a podcast hosted by Bobby finger and Lindsey Weber, and it is about as they say everything you need to know about the celebrities.
