This week, Tess and Molly discuss the Barbie Dream House Experience, a Florida outlet mall destination recently explored in all its pink glory by Vice’s Mitchell Sunderland, and the time Molly got stuck on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland. They also chat about tulpa enthusiasts, a community of people who summon autonomous imaginary friends (“thought-forms”) to keep them company when an animatronic Johnny Depp is just too impractical (and heavy). The best tulpa would be an invisible Jack Handey, the creator of some of the best 10-minutes-to-1-a.m. SNL sketches and the deepest thought-form of all.
