d&d show update!

so a few weeks ago we posted that austen and will are hard at work making a d&d show for this site and youtube. here’s just a quick update for you, it’s still happening! there ya go. well see ya next time. okay okay, a little bit more. so far, we have recorded a few sessions of some guys playing a game led by austen. after doing some editing, austen has found the title for this show. ‘the worst d&d group ever’ …so if THAT doesn’t make you want to watch, I don’t know what will.

in all actuality, it is coming along pretty well. austen is trying to keep it fun and entertaining while also staying on track and keeping the game moving along and therein lies the biggest challenge! will’s game hasn’t begun yet as he is taking far too long to bang out his story. mainly because he has been wasting time playing ark: survival evolved. but eventually, hopefully, he will be getting his game started as well.

we may post some sneak previews of the first episode of austen’s soon, so keep checking back to see! feel free to comment with feedback or things you’d like to see. by the way, the guy in the picture is taylor, one of austens players. so you’ll see him in the videos.

people who matter

1. the goldbergs¬† (abc) – in case you haven’t heard of or seen this show it’s based on the creator, adam goldberg, and his family. set in the 1980s this nostalgic show reminds some of the wonder years and id agree it has its similarities. except this show is funny. really funny. the best part about this show and what really makes it work for me is the brilliant cast. from the youngest child to the grandpa, the cast is superb and hilarious. ill admit i was hesitant to ever give this show a chance because 1. its on abc and 2. the commercials do it no justice at all but it has pleasantly surprised me each week.

2. william elliott whitmore – i wouldnt be surprised if you’ve never heard this name before…but if you havent, thats a damn shame. this soulful singer has a new record out that only adds to the beauty of his collective work thus far. if you are only going to listen to one song and judge if you like him or not i’d suggest you listen to “there’s hope for you” off his 2009 release ‘animals in the dark’. if you don’t like that well then you have no soul.

3. ben foster – this man is an incredible actor. though rarely the leading man, he is always the star of everything he is in. i truly believe he is the most underrated actor of our time because i feel he is the most talented actor there is. possibly ever. his ability to absolutely transform into the characters he plays is astounding. i feel that this great strength of his is also one of the main reasons people dont always realize who he is right away and tend to forget just how great he is. people love clooney because clooney is always clooney. but people love ben in this movie because hes a crazy bad guy and in this movie cuz he’s a badass and in this one cuz he is a winged angel dude but they dont necessarily put together that it was that same guy in all of them and thats a shame. watch anything hes been in for proof but my favorite performances of his are the small but wonderful role in “30 days of night”. the emotion-packed “the messenger” with woody harrelson. the tragically true story of “alpha dog” and the star studded western “3:10 to yuma”. these roles are some of his finest but trust me, everything he does is gold.

check out our videos

hey did you all forget about The Only People Who Matter videos page? Sure seems like it! Sure WE haven’t updated it in a long time but I know there are new fans out there everyday just discovering us, so to them, please go watch our web series. Why are there only three episodes you ask? Great question, well because we abandoned the series in favor of making it into a feature length film. Kind of shitty, but kind of awesome, we know.

Also check out our comics and stuff too, we are more than just articles here, we do it all!

Harris Wittels

I don’t feel like I have any room to speak on the wonderful comedic mind of Harris, or his tragic death, but I did want to just pay my respect to a well-respected and clearly loved man. I have been listening to every podcast that Harris was on and trying to find as much Harris-related things as I can since his death, and am sad that it took his death for so many, myself included, to truly appreciate his many talents.

It is quite possible that The Only People Who Matter might not exist without Harris. One day, Chris asked me (Will) if I ever listened to podcasts and I said that no, I never had. And Chris said that I should check some out as he was quickly becoming a big fan of several (CBB, Joe Rogan). Well I decided that I would check some of them out but didn’t know which ones I would enjoy listening to, so I just did a little Bing search for top podcasts to listen to and I found Marc Maron’s WTF. I had remembered reading about this podcast before and knew of Maron as a stand up so I figured this was my best bet to ease into this new world of podcasts. So I downloaded a podcast playing app and searched for Marc Maron and found a few of his recent interviews, one of which was with Harris. I didn’t know who he was but in the description it mentioned Parks and Rec and I thought, hey, I like that show, I’ll check this one out.

That interview was my first taste of what a podcast was, and it was a really good interview. I feel as though I listened to every word that Marc and Harris said moreso than any podcast I have listened to since simply because I was trying to be completely enthralled in the experience, or maybe because Marc is a great interviewer and Harris is a very personable guy who has great stories and tells them well. Whatever the reason may be, I was hooked. I told no less than 5 people about the interview and about Harris and how they should all check it out. After this, my next venture was into Joe Rogan, then Nerdist, then Comedy Bang Bang where I have remained. Other Earwolf podcasts as well, but CBB is the only podcast where I listen to each and every episode. I’m off on a tangent, I apologize.

Harris made me excited about podcasts and what they could be, and how much fun I realized that I could have doing my own. And because of that, Chris and I decided to start The Only People Who Matter podcast. Which then led to the web series and this website. And soon, our first feature film.

So, if you think about it, if you are a fan of ours, you should be thankful to Harris Wittels. I know that Chris and I are. Thank you Harris for your talent, your comedy and from the many wonderful things I’ve read and heard about you from friends and loved ones, your warm and kind heart. You are and will continue to be missed by so many.
