    MOMOFUKDVDASA: David Choe is David Chang

    • charlie chan<span class="comment-author-location"> from Lancaster, OH, United States</span>

      I haven’t even listened to this at all yet, but I was about to post a comment saying that DVDASA needs to have a Handsome Boy Modeling School makeover. So that Choe can look as rad as Chang did in that PBS show where he was golfing with Dan the Automator

  • milhouse<span class="comment-author-location"> from San Jose, CA, United States</span>

    I’m in awe of the quality of the conversation between Choe and Chang. So intimate and weaving in various narratives, insights, and experiences together and constructing a dialectical discourse out of it. It’s like a multi-layered mosaic of madness, mania, and genius.

    Critter said don’t buy big tents because homeless peeps will be running a sex ring and shooting up in there so instead you bought them nice little portable tents. How many of those tents ended up in the pawn shop so they could buy some hard around the corner? All? Haha

    so interesting and funny hearing about that debate dave and dave had with all the other chefs on prime years and how its all downhill after the golden years.

    there was a vice series where this professional skateboarder, jason dill, said almost the exact same idea about skateboarders.

    “he’s in the window, me and ave talk about the WINDOW. 19 – 24 you have this window, when youre in the window, you can do ANYTHING.”

    http://youtu.be/RIOoJtOFv3k?t=10m1s

    very similar thought and for the most part truth that dave and dave were talking about on how age 21-35 is the prime years for alot of creative and athletic persons and careers.

    such a great episode having JUST dave and david riffing back and forth. although i think bobby lee wouldve been a great addition. having another successful korean american male from comedy and hollywood would have added alot to the dynamic.

  • Bagholder<span class="comment-author-location"> from Australia</span>

    I have to say, pretty good episode. Inspirational? motivational? Just plain crazy? These are the best episodes; sitting around having a conversation #deepthoughts.
    I would love to see Dave, Asa and the crew (including Yoshi) critique a porn as its playing: Monster Theater 3000 style. No fast forwarding, now that’s discipline.

      Great job Daves!

  • daveisgay<span class="comment-author-location"> from New York, NY, United States</span>

    This episode is probably my favorite episode so far. It’s rare to actually hear people who made it speak so honestly, especially about their failures. So many successful people out there who still have their heads up their asses and will act as if they have never failed or will never fail in the future, when we all know it’s bull shit. I hope David Chang comes back on the show. The chemistry between Chang and Choe makes for a great listen.

    • dancewillson<span class="comment-author-location"> from Houston, TX, United States</span>

  • Mase<span class="comment-author-location"> from Mississauga, ON, Canada</span>

    Love the bro energy in the room. Definitely think about interspersing these more intimate one-on-one sessions with the casual group hangouts. It’s a welcome change of pace: more candid and less distracting. You guys have so much wisdom to impart on those of us who’re working to make it off the beaten path. Would love to have one of these with Uncle Tony and Eddie Huang, among others.

    Deniro went strong till ’97. Heat may have been his last “great” starring performance, but Wag the Dog and Jackie Brown still had something new to offer and may have been his last two genuinely inspired acting projects that were well-received.

    its good to hear you get serious dave for a change. great show, i may listen to it a couple times.

    OMG so I just read the Poon Report and had no idea where to post this but i gotta say… ITS FUCKIN AMAZING. I love Poon’s writing jeeezus. Its so crisp, love it. Please keep doing more!

    Your third-person view of what’s going on is really refreshing. Love your take on all of the castmates. I kind of gave you and Bobby T a hard time in a previous blog post, but I gotta say you guys are doing a friggen awesome job and I love all of this new awesome content> LONG LIVE TEH POONER REPORT!!!

    Dave is too hard on the people who work for him but don’t have full bro status. Yen is as good a worker as Dave is going to get. The dude just drove everyone to MExico when he barely drives. Not saying its good to offend guests but chillax man.

    I never comment but I had to comment. This podcast was so refreshing to listen to because you guys really delve into things. While I love the whole slew of people that are usually there, this was much more focused, interesting, and intimate. A nice breather from the usual chaos. :)

    I’ve been thinking about this over 35 issue (mostly because I’m in that age group) and the concept of quitting while you’re on top. Why quit if that’s what you love to do; even if you’ve lost a step or two (i.e. Robert Dinero)? “I honestly think it is better to be a failure at something you love than to be a success at something you hate.” George Burns #notcorny #nojudging

    • daveisgay<span class="comment-author-location"> from New York, NY, United States</span>

      They’re talking about legacy. De Niro was an excellent actor, but when you are rich for too long, the hunger is gone. Look at everyone at has been at the top for decades. Their work suffers because they no longer are hungry and they get used to that life of luxury. Why put out something shitty and ruin the reputation that has been built off that hunger? If it’s truly what he loves doing, I don’t think his work should suffer. He is probably just milking it for all it’s worth since he is getting older. He has 6 kids.

      From the perspective of the artist I agree. If creating art is something you enjoy I think you should keep doing it. Legacy is a little over-rated in my opinion. I won’t care what people say about my art after I’m dead because I’ll be dead.

  • Jay Unidos<span class="comment-author-location"> from San Pablo, CA, United States</span>

    Great guest, awesome podcast, and even the trivia was on point! That tent story, holy shit. There’s a point where you’re so rich that you gotta go big or go home, and ten tents at time in a cutlass supreme on skid row…that’s like shit people I know would try to do after a benefit show at a punk club. David Chang broke it down, if you really want to get involved in the community, helping folks. Either way, DVDASA is on fire so far in 2014. P.S. The members of Fugazi are millionaires (have been for years), still run a record label, and Ian Mackaye just finished a tour that stopped in Los Angeles with the Evens. Henry Rollins, has a NatGeo travel show, does voice over work for UFC primetimes, and various music and art related documentaries (Check out “the Legend of Cool Disco Dan”) that came out last year, does spoken word tours, is an author, AND hosts that radio show you mention on the podcast. Dude is very active. Early Rollins Band albums are as good or better than most Black Flag albums, in my opinion. Not “Damaged”, of course.

    Listening to this again for the 10th time? I’m still blown away by it, and by the fact it has so few comments. I’m relistening to it because I saw a Time magazine cover of D Chang titled “The Gods of Food” randomly laying on a desk at work. Paolo Coehlo would say there’s a message here for me.
