Get Up On Jensen: Hypemen Reunite! 

Dec 29th at 4PM / 11 notes

Jeff and Eric Rosenthal (ItsTheReal.com) join Jensen, during a trip to NY, to create the widely demanded (?) Hypemen podcast reunion, all in hopes of breaking down each other’s top ten hip-hop songs of 2011. Join these 3 Jewish hip-hop nerds as they dissect and analyze hip-hop in the exact opposite manner that the founding fathers of the art form ever imagined. Will their friendship survive? Find out in this episode!

Also, follow Jensen’s podcast on Tumblr!


Listen to Episode One of Jensen's New Podcast: Get Up On This! 

Aug 3rd at 2PM / 22 notes

Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park joins Jensen for the premiere episode and talks about the resurgence of the 90′s, why Alien Ant Farm may be relevant this Halloween, airbrushed overalls, Spotify, a guest call-in from DA of Chester French, Sonos, the Humblebrag, Americana, how we’re late on Hunger Games and The Walking Dead, and many other things you’ll need to know about.


Does Jennifer Aniston know who Drake is? 

madeupmemories:

A few months ago, my brothers (Eric, Dan) and I went out with our Korean friends (Cho, Phil) for Korean food. I don’t remember how it got brought up, but Cho was the one who actually asked the question:

Do you think Jennifer Aniston knows who Drake is?

There were theories as to why she would know Drake: their faces are in the same magazines; she spends a lot of time in cars and she surely must’ve heard him on the radio in LA.

And, of course, there were a plethora of reasons as to why she wouldn’t: too old, too famous, too busy to care. (We’d also heard rumors that she stopped paying attention to pop culture in the mid-90’s.)

On a regular basis thereafter that dinner, we asked various people on our podcast for their thoughts. Rappers, comedians, writers. Some said yes, some said no, but most just teeter-tottered on top of the fence.

Well, today - - via the best email ever - - I bring to you a definitive answer, as sent in from Sweden by a fan of our podcast:

Jennifer Aniston does NOT KNOW who drake is! a friend of mine asked her, as she’s currently doing press in the uk for horrible bosses. she replied that she knew a Dr Drake Ramoray.”

So, there you have it. Jennifer Aniston does not know who Drake is, but does remember a bit of mid-90’s trivia: Dr. Drake Ramoray is Joey’s alias from Friends.
