I still can't believe OzyFest is a real thing, it's Coachella for lanyards. As someone who would be terrified to talk to a pizza man while on acid I can't imagine what they were thinking.

Amber's hotbox/vulva joke might be the funniest video game joke in history.

Ozyfest is a real thing? I saw the poster floating around on twitter and I thought it was something to make fun of lanyards whose notion of "fun" was watching every talk show monologue. Amber's "that's so sad" story over someone comparing it to going to some actual music festival was spot on because as Matt points out, this seems the exactly worst thing in every festival. But even worse, because I might whine over having seen Haim once and avoiding end-of-life Flaming Lips, but I never went to something with Karl Rove on the lineup.
Also, a cold open for the ages in this episode.

Amber went in over the top rope for that one. That was the best comeback to Felix's gamings I've heard in a while. Second place was "You shouldn't have an event with Karl Rove that isn't a public execution".

Here's Jamie's article in Rolling Stone about being at the event, great read. Loved / hated the moment where Tom Perez's speech made her break down and say "Trump will win". Link

Great, depressing episode.

The fact that they follow up on this incredible Ozy shitshow with the Third Way centrist democrat nonsense is just...ugh.
