We are like episodes and episodes to even begin here to get even to think about your carts.

That makes sense because like me and Oscar are somehow the like best friends. And we disagree on everything and hate each other.


Oscar Mantoya  05:31

Absolutely, we are literally the opposite sides of the exact same coin. As a matter of fact, people confuse each other all the time. So.

Mano Agapion  05:52

I one time was called in to audition for something. And they were like, I was like, okay, cool, cute. We’re gonna do an audition, and end the audition. They were like, Oh my God. And by the way, you are fantastic on the musical improv show. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And I don’t do musical improv. And then they went a step further and they’re like, Oh, you’re just so funny. I mean, every time you pop up every time you’re a or guest are even on that show, Minx. You’re so good. And that’s when I knew they thought Oh, me this casting director Oscar.

To try to get that job.


Mano Agapion  06:28

Yeah. You What I didn’t. I did not correct them. I was like, Yeah, because I was like, I’m the weird world that I get this job. I have to keep this guy alive because this person is a fan of my work Oscar Montoya. So I’m a bad friend.


Oscar Mantoya  06:52

Your good friend.


Mano Agapion  06:53

And we do a freaky Friday and you go to my writing job and it all works out.


Kulap Vilaysack  06:57

I can relate to these tales I get Marry Stone and I get each other. Marry stone and I will get each other when we’re standing beside each other. We were in Aspen and someone’s like oh my gosh, people are talking about you like you’re in AP Bio. And I’m like, right over there. The lady right next to me.


Mano Agapion  07:19

Isn’t that funny? Kulap that you’re on one of the most popular sitcoms in the world doing this same bitch with a girl you do not look like? What a world.


Kulap Vilaysack  07:33

I need to know from both of you how you add to cart What’s your style?


Mano Agapion  07:37

Wow. I because I’m I’m the more anal one of us by far. I am the overprepared. Virgo and weird thing I do when I’m adding to cart literally at a grocery store, at least is I like I did this weird thing. I don’t know, if a lot of people do this. I always buy items in two, like, very often I’ll buy an item and I’ll buy two of a kind all the time. Because I for some, whatever reason, some annual part of my brain is like, well, if I like it, I’m gonna want to eat it again. So like, I oftentimes will buy two at a time.


Oscar Mantoya  08:20



Kulap Vilaysack  08:20

We found another Jason Mantzoukas person and he has an equation. One equals 0, 2 equals one, three equals two.


Mano Agapion  08:31

Okay, I think I’m here for this.


SuChin Pak  08:34

Now, are you is this? Is this on stuff that you know you will like and you’ve bought before? Or are you doing this like willy nilly even on something you’re like, I’ve.


Kulap Vilaysack  08:42

Never got a chance on?


SuChin Pak  08:43

Yeah, I think I’ll like it. Let me have two of these. You know, bison jerkies.


Mano Agapion  08:50

It’s usually unreliable. Usually it’s on Okay, cereal. I know. I want a lot of cereal. Soy milk. I know. I want a lot of soy milk. Peanut butter. I know I want a lot. You know what I mean? So usually it’s on like big staples. It’s like, but for some reason. It’s like, I would never just buy one. It just like two.


SuChin Pak  09:05



Kulap Vilaysack  09:06

Wow. I love that. I love that. That’s so specific.


Mano Agapion  09:10

It’s the preparedness for sure. There’s some element of like, well, I’ll have a backup.


Kulap Vilaysack  09:15

Okay, that was it. Thank you. Thank you for letting us in. Thank you for your intimacy.


Mano Agapion  09:20

Oscar, how do you add to cart?


Oscar Mantoya  09:22

Well, you know, I’m not a Virgo. I’m an Aries. So I’m a chaotic demon. So for me, it is truly whatever I’m feeling. I’m very impulsive. And here’s the thing. I rarely leave stuff and add to cart like very rarely it’ll just be like literally an impulse buy straight to the just checkout counter. At the grocery store, I don’t buy two of everything I know monos This is my nightmare that I will go like for example if I need like oat milk, which is what I that’s like my staple in my fridge. I will always have a carton of milk Um, I will go to the store to be like, Okay, you’re just getting out milk, I will come back with $200 worth of stuff. It’s and it is whatever catches my eye if the packaging is nice if there’s bright colors on the box, I’m getting it. And I have a problem with buying stuff and never eating it. I literally have a box of like.


SuChin Pak  10:21

Yeah, because he’s shopping for color.


Oscar Mantoya  10:23

Exactly. That’s exactly right. Yes. And I will buy something and it looks cool. And I’ll take a bite out of it and then be like, or, yeah, I’ll buy it and like I’m like, oh, gosh, I have this weird thing of like, if the like if I buy it and it looks really cool. I kind of don’t want to eat it because I like I like looking at the box. And then just and I’m like, Oh, if I eat it, then the box goes away and then I will never see it again.


SuChin Pak  10:55

I need examples. I need examples of things that you’re not eating because the box is so beautiful and or things you bought that are just collecting mole.


Oscar Mantoya  11:06



SuChin Pak  11:06

Or pantry.


Oscar Mantoya  11:07

So an example is I so I love a sugar smacks which is the frog cereal. Yeah, it’s they’re sort of rare. They can’t i can’t really find a lot of them. I have I had one. And I was like, oh, I want to eat it. But then I looked at the box. And I was like, I’m not going to find another box of these. So I’m just going to have this to look at it and be like, Oh, yes, that that looks delicious. And then and then eat my special case scenario which I don’t give a shit about.


Mano Agapion  11:45



SuChin Pak  11:46

Never heard. I’ve never heard of either one of your strategies for adding. I do have to say when you came on and you said two different sides of the same coin. I was like yeah, I’ve heard that Been there done that this is true.


Oscar Mantoya  12:00

Quite literally Yes.


SuChin Pak  12:01

Truly a trip into chaos and mad.


Kulap Vilaysack  12:04

But again, the same coin. Oscar, thank you for letting us in.


SuChin Pak  12:09

Thank you for right Right, right. Yes, you’re right. No judgment. No, no laughing.


Kulap Vilaysack  12:14

There is judgment.


Oscar Mantoya  12:16

Judging myself. I know that. I know that it’s worthwhile.


Mano Agapion  12:19

When you internet shop. I just it’s for everyone. Because the panic type A in me I’m like, I do look up for like promo codes. Right? We all look for promo codes when we’re shopping online.


SuChin Pak  12:30

We all have desktop add ons, right? I mean, like we have homies. Right. Well, how many we have Rocket10  Have you done the Rocket10 yet?


Oscar Mantoya  12:37

What the? You’re speaking a different language? What


SuChin Pak  12:39

Oscar you need to get into this.


Oscar Mantoya  12:41

What the hell are y’all talking about?


SuChin Pak  12:43

Browser add ons?


Oscar Mantoya  12:44

What? Browser add ons coupon?


SuChin Pak  12:47

You’re just leaving money on the table. You’re leaving money on the table.


Oscar Mantoya  12:50

Okay, so how do they work? So like,


Kulap Vilaysack  12:52

For example, Rocket10, you sign up, it’s totally free to sign up. They are a sponsor. And so it’s on your browser. So you shop the stores that you normally shop. And it’ll automatically give you cashback like some places it’s 3%. Sometimes it’s 10%. So you’re not spending any more money. But then you can get that like true cash back to you.


Oscar Mantoya  13:16

This feels like a fair and.


SuChin Pak  13:17

You can get it in a check form or you could get it straight into your PayPal account.


Mano Agapion  13:22

10% on Nike Wow.


Oscar Mantoya  13:25

Yeah, hotel stays too like what.


Mano Agapion  13:31

Oh my God, wait, and they have a pride flag in their logo. Oh. We’re here for faggotalism sorry. That’s what we call gay capitalism.


Oscar Mantoya  13:47

So you So okay, so Mano. Let me let me ask you this. So you like for example, you’re shopping for something and there’s like a brand name? pair of shoes, right? That you’re like, Okay, I want these shoes. But then they don’t have a coupon code for it. But then these other pair of shoes that they’re not like.


Mano Agapion  14:04

There’s always a coupon code.


Oscar Mantoya  14:05

Would you still get them if they had a code?


Mano Agapion  14:06

I will definitely it’s first of all, I don’t like buying stuff for myself. I don’t like shopping really. So when I do it’s a rare circumstance. And I will be like, pretty feverishly trying to find a promo code even if it’s free shipping or 10% off. There is always a.


SuChin Pak  14:26

Welcome 10 Oh, I mean, you welcome 10 into it you doing Oscar is when you check out any website, just minimum welcome10 You know, and you just put that in the promo code and there is a shot that that is a 10% off.


Oscar Mantoya  14:43

I feel like today’s the first day I’m an adult.


Mano Agapion  14:48



SuChin Pak  14:49

Mano Agapion  14:52

Kulap Vilaysack  16:39

Bungees okay. Tell us why we’re here.


Oscar Mantoya  16:44

Okay, so, like I said before, everything I do is impulse buy. It’s not even add to cart. It’s just straight to checkout. Except for stuff like this. I’m like, not totally sure. I mean, when it comes to like vitamins and like, you know, I have vitamins that I take daily. But Lion’s Mane I’ve heard so much about like, there’s like a mushroom movement happening, you know.


Kulap Vilaysack  17:07



Oscar Mantoya  17:07

Now, where it’s fully the thing everyone’s talking about. And here’s a fun fact about myself, I have no memory like i My memory is worse than a goldfish. I truly have no brain capacity for memorizing anything for remembering dates, or stuff like I have fully missed.


Mano Agapion  17:27

Getting a lot of fights about it a lot of fight.


Oscar Mantoya  17:29

And Mano knows firsthand that I straight up will just not show up for plans that we’ve made. weeks ago. Like you got to tell me the second it happens or else I just won’t know. And so I was like, Well, maybe you know, it’s become a hindrance in my life or my memory is so bad that I’ve you know, it’s not good. So.


Kulap Vilaysack  17:50

Okay, so let’s do something about it.


Oscar Mantoya  17:52

Yeah, let’s do something about it. Let’s be proactive about it, but not so proactive that I bought them. So you know, I’m always sort of just like surely going to work like I’m not totally sure.


Kulap Vilaysack  18:05

Yeah, that’s fair. Is it a scam? Is it just candy?


Oscar Mantoya  18:09

SuChin Pak  24:01

Seriously, be looking for the right pair.


Kulap Vilaysack  24:06

Oscar, let’s get back to you. And now I feel like we are in cool Oscar mode. All right, this is the path we’re taking. Let’s start with the Pacific Breeze Japanese City Pop on vinyl.


Oscar Mantoya  24:20

That’s The trick with Amazon.


Oscar Mantoya  24:20

Yes. Okay, so City Pop, it’s my obsession. I have volumes two and three because it comes it’s a three volume LP set, but I don’t have the first one. I couldn’t find it anywhere. I like record shopping. i It’s my hobby. And I couldn’t find it anywhere. And believe it or not, it’s on Amazon. And it’s not super expensive. I paid so much money for the second and third volumes that I was like wait, this is insane that it’s here. The reason why I haven’t fully bought it yet is because I think it might be a scam.


Oscar Mantoya  24:20

This specific breeze now I’m sorry, this is music. Are we talking about?


Oscar Mantoya  24:31

Its music.


SuChin Pak  24:43

And is it like a compilation of different artists?


Oscar Mantoya  25:11

Yes, it’s yes, it’s a compilation of City Pop and Boogie music from the 70s and 80s Japanese scene.


Mano Agapion  25:20

Oscar, you are so funky.


Oscar Mantoya  25:22

Okay, this is okay. This is a reference to a friend of ours.


Mano Agapion  25:27

Actually a friend Kulap knows way too well.


Oscar Mantoya  25:29

That refers to Mano as basic Oscar and refers to me as funky Mano.


Kulap Vilaysack  25:38

Who is it? I heard it with a Georgian accent.


Oscar Mantoya  25:44

Yeah, City Pop is a sort of like 80s Japanese music. It’s very like easy listening. It’s kind of like Yacht rock, adjacent. I’m obsessed. It’s my favorite genre of music. But this has like all of the best tracks that like all the pioneers of city pop. All of their songs are in there. So like, I was like, I need to get it. I need to get it. It’s like the greatest hits of city pop music. And it is infamously hard to find any city pop records. I had to go to Japan to buy City Pop records because they’re so expensive in LA.


Kulap Vilaysack  26:26

So based on what you have shared with us, I do yes, it’s a scam. The Amazon Amazon is


Oscar Mantoya  26:31

Saying it’s a scam. must be right.


Kulap Vilaysack  26:35

Yes. You are educated and research is a scam


Oscar Mantoya  26:38

But I just know like are scams do they happen on Amazon?


SuChin Pak  26:43

Oh? What is going on? What are you doing? Who’s home with you? Is the gas stove off? Or? What’s the carbonoxide fluctiation? What’s happening?


Mano Agapion  27:11

You could probably get your money back from the bad purchase probably. But the point is, yeah, that you know.


SuChin Pak  27:20

No, if there isn’t that prime and I’m talking about prime all the way through because sometimes they’ll do a prime on the cover and then you go click into the link and you’re like up I don’t see a prime in the description. You just got to double check or you could buy.


Kulap Vilaysack  27:34

It could be an independent person using Amazon to sell stuff so that you just have to tell your eyes.


Oscar Mantoya  27:40

That’s allowed?


Kulap Vilaysack  27:42

That’s allowed.


Mano Agapion  27:44

Yeah, that’s a part of it.


Kulap Vilaysack  27:45

And are you listening to this music? This just Paint me a Picture. What are you doing you’re you’re getting ready for a night out you’re having a barbecue what is the vibe that you’re setting with this music


Oscar Mantoya  28:20

The City Pop vibe is this I wake up and I have a cup of coffee that’s like just what I do every morning and or sometimes afternoon because I sleep late. And I will put on City Pop and just vibe with my coffee and I drink and then I read sometimes I do some reading with City Pop because the vibe is mellow that’s that’s just the vibe it’s like very mellow mellow very happy very mellow. Sometimes you get a bop going and you’re like okay, this is a fun little like Friday night pop and that’s but that’s a different outlet. I have a different album for that. That’s quite different now. I have my cool Japanese breeze. Easy breezy morning Japanese pop group and then I have my Friday night getting ready to I don’t go out at a party but getting ready to dance in my room to some Japanese city pop box.


Mano Agapion  29:13

SuChin Pak  29:15

So, I know, I love it Oscar I can’t offline I’m going to have to get your Tokyo list like your list to Tokyo must be so fun and interesting and cute.


Oscar Mantoya  29:29

SuChin Pak  30:11



Oscar Mantoya  30:12

You know, I don’t have one at all. You know, my favorite times in Tokyo was getting lost and finding a random indoor amusement park. And it was my favorite thing ever.


Mano Agapion  30:24



Kulap Vilaysack  30:25

I mean, we know that Oscar because you’ve added to cart setting a schedule because I’m terrible at managing my time.


SuChin Pak  30:32

Mano Agapion  30:33

I’m so jealous because like I you your your morning. Sounds nice. I literally like wake up at 830 to an alarm. And like my first thought is wake up, you wake up and be productive, you fucking loser. And it sounds like.


SuChin Pak  30:49



Mano Agapion  30:52



SuChin Pak  30:53

Smacks but not your smack.


Mano Agapion  30:57

Looking at my smacks, eating.

Kulap Vilaysack  32:20

Mano Agapion  32:46

Yep. Any questions?


SuChin Pak  32:49

I mean, I think we have to Oscar I think we have to turn it to you. Is it concert, mustard, neutrals, reboots, or Italian cold cuts. Oscar. Oscar. This is a game show that we all have found ourselves.


Oscar Mantoya  33:05

As a Jeopardy question. What category am I going to pick?


SuChin Pak  33:08

What category would you like to flip?


Oscar Mantoya  33:11

Okay, I’ve really there’s all of them honestly, but let’s start with mustard. What do.


Mano Agapion  33:19

I think mustard’s over everyone? I think we’re done with mustard. I think we got to move on. I think we had it had its moment. I think it’s not it’s not helping anyone anymore. It’s too yellow. Um, I don’t I just don’t like the flavor. I don’t like it. I don’t like it. I don’t like when there’s mustard on a burger or?


Mano Agapion  33:41

Yeah. They put them on burgers.


Oscar Mantoya  33:43

Who puts mustard on burgers?


Mano Agapion  33:46

Like the McDonald’s McDonald’s burger has like the onions and the pickle and the mustard in the ketchup you.


Kulap Vilaysack  33:52

Yeah, they do.


SuChin Pak  33:55

All mustard. You’re talking about like a Dijon? A stone ground. Just the yellow.


Mano Agapion  34:02

I have more tolerance for the other kinds of mustard. I think they’re there but just mustard. I hate it.


Kulap Vilaysack  34:08

Wow, you don’t like basic mustard? You don’t like.


Mano Agapion  34:11

I don’t like the basic mustard.


SuChin Pak  34:12

I love basic mustard.


Mano Agapion  34:13

You do?


SuChin Pak  34:14

I love basic mustard?


Mano Agapion  34:17

It’s too bright to admit it.


Kulap Vilaysack  34:19

I’m a Mustard Head I do I wait mustard.


Mano Agapion  34:21

Oh my god. Wait a second.


SuChin Pak  34:22

I’ve never met a mustard. I didn’t love it because it’s I love a vinegary. Like I’m not a nice person. Ketchup is too sweet.


Kulap Vilaysack  34:29

Like a sour.


SuChin Pak  34:30

I like the sour like.


Kulap Vilaysack  34:31

A tar.


Oscar Mantoya  34:33

Because I was just gonna say who eats mustard anymore? There’s like you both do.


Kulap Vilaysack  34:39

I have multiple mustards in my fridge right?


SuChin Pak  34:41

Oh yeah, I have a shot. I don’t know the name of the store. But I call it the mustard shop because they just have the most amazing array of mustards that I’ve ever seen in my life. And I know it’s not called the mustard shop, but we refer to it in our family as are you going to the mustard shop?


Mano Agapion  34:59

Yeah. Yeah, yeah, and I like some of the other ones like I like like spicy horseradish, the Japanese mustard I liked. I liked the ones with texture.


SuChin Pak  35:09

But just the straight yellow Costco mustard is not for you.


SuChin Pak  35:13

But also I’m gonna guess it’s a yellow basic mustard is foisted upon you. If you want that mustard you’re describing you’re choosing the time and the place.


Kulap Vilaysack  35:22



Oscar Mantoya  35:23

That’s a good point.


Mano Agapion  35:23



SuChin Pak  35:23

That’s fine. palay Yeah.


Oscar Mantoya  35:26

Concerts. What’s going on with that? You don’t like concerts?


Mano Agapion  35:32

There too much. There too much.


Oscar Mantoya  35:34

Mano? You just want to see Aqua? And.


Mano Agapion  35:37

No, oh, no, I am going to see Aqua soon. I’m going to.


Oscar Mantoya  35:41

Well, then what are you talking about?


Mano Agapion  35:43

Well, there are certain acts I’m going to make an exception for but I feel like there’s a performative enjoyment to concerts that I don’t like.


SuChin Pak  35:52

Formative enjoyment. So you’re saying you don’t like someone strutting up there? Like they are performing? Is this what you’re saying? You don’t like that?


Mano Agapion  36:00

No, I guess I’m saying like, the attitude that like we’re not all like tired. And we’re not all sad. We spent $20 on a beer and and the fact that we’re, we don’t care how long this lasts, we’ll be here.


Kulap Vilaysack  36:14

So it’s the audience. So it’s like you’re not even looking at you turn right to left. And you see.


SuChin Pak  36:19

And you’re like, you’re not having a good time. Shut up.


Mano Agapion  36:25

Yeah, that I don’t like that.


SuChin Pak  36:28

I have to say, this is a deeply held secret that I have not shared in public. Ever.


Mano Agapion  36:35

Oh, good.


SuChin Pak  36:36

And because well, I used to work on MTV.


Mano Agapion  36:40

So some of us might remember.


SuChin Pak  36:43

And the m&m TV for those that don’t know, is music.


Kulap Vilaysack  36:50

Might not know they might not.


Oscar Mantoya  36:51

Yeah, some people. Some kids might have forgotten because there’s no music now.


SuChin Pak  36:55

Yeah. I don’t love music, and I don’t like concerts.


Kulap Vilaysack  37:00



SuChin Pak  37:03

And that’s an exclusive. That’s an ATC exclusive. This is I’ve never shared that. Because it is a very unpopular opinion. I know. I’m good. I don’t want to actually hear I don’t want to hear from you. I don’t care. Don’t comment on this. It’s my life. And I don’t like it. The parking how much it costs. Yeah, I went to and I shot and be artists because that artist has a very large fan base. I was surprised by my husband who loves live music with a ticket to this artists that I love. And I was like, yay. And we sat in these great seats. And I was annoyed that everybody was standing to get stand for that long. Number one and number two, you’re just staring at a jumbo screen, because you can’t actually see the person. So you’re now I’m sitting outdoors with a bunch of people. And I’m looking at a screen of an artist that is somewhere in the arena is what’s your point?


Mano Agapion  38:01

Yes. You’re not even experiencing it I with you? Are we wrong? counterpoints?


Kulap Vilaysack  38:07

I’m not I mean, that’s your experience of it. Like I’m enjoying like, being with people. I’m enjoying the I’m like the vibes in the fresh air. Like I went and saw the national at the time this recording last week. And that was like, I just loved being in the Greek theater and I was really feeling the music. I like that experience.


Oscar Mantoya  38:31

Yeah, same. I saw Toro y Moi. In concert at the Hollywood so funky.


Mano Agapion  38:37

Funky, Funky.


Oscar Mantoya  38:41

And it was great. I love I love music. I love listening to music. Live music is really fun. And it is a fun way to be like oh do you like this artists so do I, let’s connect you know.


SuChin Pak  38:52

Got connect. Psycho, psycho, oh my God.Think of that as a possibility.


Oscar Mantoya  39:03

That’s where you meet the fans?


SuChin Pak  39:05

Oh, no.


Oscar Mantoya  39:07

So you just stoically watching the performance.


SuChin Pak  39:10

Pretty much like not happy and I left like I don’t know what’s it called halftime? Whatever. I left at some point before the end because I was like, No, I’m not waiting in that line for parking. And Mike was like, You’re insane. Like you have to wait like this is the best part of it is coming and I was like, No, it can’t be that good that we are going to wait in parking so you’re gonna get up and we’re gonna go get our car. And that was my last concert.


Kulap Vilaysack  39:42

Because usually sometimes the band’s Big save some of their bangers towards the end. It’s like because they were building up to something you know, that’s usually where they.


SuChin Pak  39:53

Every amazing concert on YouTube riveted.


Kulap Vilaysack  39:56

Yes. What I will never do again is Coachella And I like Coachella more. I prefer Coachella.


Oscar Mantoya  40:05

Why wouldn’t you do Coachella anymore?


Kulap Vilaysack  40:07

Oh, awesome. This bitches all doesn’t want to be hot. I want to be hydrated. I want to take a shower when I want to take a shit.


SuChin Pak  40:17

Name, name three things Oscar. And you have, like three real things that that are very convincing, that are good about Coachella about that you experience personally. Quickly. I don’t say I don’t say something like the vibe. No, I’m talking about specific. I’m talking about like, go ahead.


Oscar Mantoya  40:39

Is on honestly, like you get to see people. You get to see people, you get to see what they’re wearing. What I was gonna say what the vibe is, but you get to see your spirit. Yeah, you get to meet people, you get to experience all different kinds of music. You get to like, just be in the ambiance of people. I didn’t say vibe and the ambiance of people enjoying a performance and together you’re sort of.


SuChin Pak  41:05

Are you high? are you high?


Oscar Mantoya  41:07



SuChin Pak  41:08

Are you high?


Oscar Mantoya  41:09

No, I’m sober. I’m totally sober. And it’s just it’s magical.


Mano Agapion  41:13

And and to that point, even worse, hey, let’s get high. Let’s lose our tethered to reality. And then be in the middle of a group, a dirty grassy field with me and strangers and poor access to water and food. Are you kidding?


SuChin Pak  41:32

He’s got to have everything in his family, to have to have everything.


Oscar Mantoya  41:39
