#108: Throwing Fits
Jimmy and Larry drop in to tell us about Attention Seeking Behavior, Hitting 24 Hours of Screen Time, Never Tweeting, and more.
Cool people like cool things, which is why we asked Lawrence Schlossman and James Harris to come on Perfectly Imperfect & redistribute their good taste.
Today’s guests probably need no introduction, but just in case... Lawrence (Larry) and James (Jimmy) are the two grown dirtbags behind Throwing Fits, a wildly successful podcast where they navigate the male zeitgeist by shooting the shit about fashion, music, dating, self care, and everything in between. We got our start in their community and this is the last post before our 1st birthday, so this is a pretty big full circle moment! Tomorrow Throwing Fits is doing their first ever live & in person event at the Bell House in Brooklyn, so click here to snag some tickets for the show & be sure to stick around to party. Larry & Jimmy have great taste and lucky for us, they’re here to tell us what they’ve been into.
Without further ado
👹 👸 Attention Seeking Behavior
Let’s get the most important one out of the way up top and acknowledge why we're here. If you, like us, are desperately pining for acknowledgement and seeing your name in emails, boy do we have a recommendation for you. This requires patience, but for temporary validation, just follow these few easy steps:
Start a podcast
Foster a thriving community over several years
Have a newsletter emerge from that community
Rebuff numerous attempts at the newsletter inviting you to contribute
Finally accept on the newsletter’s one year anniversary
Make everything about yourself
Bask in the well-deserved attention
👂 💅 Go Through a Life Crisis With Your Boy
Crises, like most things (eating, drinking, fucking), are best shared with somebody. Whether it’s quarter-life, third-life or, in our case, midlife because we plan on dying in a ritualistic murder-suicide before the age of 70, doing something completely drastic with your boy can really help shake shit up for the both of you, while bringing you closer together in the process. We got our ears pierced, but honestly the sky’s the limit.
🕧 📱 Try to Hit 24 Hours of Screen Time
You may think you’re tapped in, but have you truly tried to merge souls with your phone, unlock the singularity and become the zeitgeist? Every moment of every day should be spent solely in service of hitting a new high score in the matrix.
🐦 ❌ Never Tweet
Your jokes aren’t funny. Your takes are ice cold. Your thoughts on Zoë Kravitz and Channing Tatum are dumb as fuck. Contrarianism isn't a personality. Nothing good has ever come from tweeting, so stop. Just stop it. Thank you.
🤯 🔥 Blow Up Your Whole Shit
Want a clean slate to start completely fresh? Want to be forced to fight your way out of a corner for survival? Want to drag yourself out of rock bottom’s basement? Blow up your whole shit in spectacular fashion and you won’t have any other choice. We did it, and you can too!
Buy tickets to see them live tomorrow (9/8) at the Bell House.
