EPISODE 14 – THE CHRISTMAS SPECIAL!

23/12/2008

Altogether now: “Haaaave yourseeelf a Bullshit Bingo Christmas…”

christmas-tree

Yes, it’s that time of year again! Time to hang up your stockings/mistletoe/hang-ups and hide behind the sofa because the Christmas Day edition of Doctor Who is on. Or, in Eddie’s case: hide behind the sofa because The Snowman is on. Aww.

The year’s nearly over – and in our December podcast, we look back at our highlights of 2008, look ahead to who we’d like to see more (and less) of in 2009, and discuss the musicians we admire but don’t like, the songs which give us the creeps, and the outfits/costumes which do the opposite of giving us the creeps.

*CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO OUR CHRISTMAS EPISODE*

Topics under discussion in January’s podcast will include nationalities we’d like to f*** (NILFS, if you will) and our encounters with famous people – so please leave comments below and let us know what your experiences are. Of sleeping with different nationalities, as well as celebrities.

Yours, wishing you a merry Christmas and a haaaappy neeew yeeeear,

The BS Bingo boys and gal

THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS

23/12/2008

In Episode 14, we discuss our highlights of 2008 – including this little fella:

This over-achieving fella:

And these similarly over-achieving fellas and gals:

Nice to see some human achievement though, isn’t it? And that’s just the people at Pixar.

SONGS THAT GIVE US THE HEEBIE-GEEBIES

23/12/2008

We’ve all got one – a song which gives us the creeps.¬† Or if you’re me, you don’t have one, you have several (not included in the podcast but also on my list: Eleanor Rigby).

In Episode 14, we reveal our secret scary songs – and they include this seasonal favourite:

This choice from Eddie:

And this 1970s classic:

Mind you, I think it was those frightful oink Cockney children shouting out in the chorus that really scared me on that last one, not the meat grinder. And who could forget the scary inflatable cartoon teacher! *Shudders*.

WHO WE’D LIKE TO SEE MORE – AND LESS – OF IN 2009

23/12/2008

The Bullshit Bingo team discuss their most and least favouritest people of 2008, and they include this pair –

– not that they’re actually a ‘pair’ in the, say, Morecombe And Wise sense. Although, thinking about it, they could both do with some work right now, so it wouldn’t be such a bad idea.

Anyway, yes, Mr President and Mr Brand are two of our choices. But can you guess which of the ‘more’ or ‘less’ categories they fall into, and why? Aha! You’ll have to listen to Episode 14 to find out.

WHICH FANCY DRESS COSTUMES DO IT FOR YOU?

24/11/2008

Fellas: if your girlfriend/wife walked into the bedroom one night wearing this –

elf

– would you a) run screaming; or b) think “Woohoo! I’ve aways had a thing for elves!” ?

Ladies: if your boyfriend/husband chose this outfit for a fancy dress party –

navyofficer

– would you a) run screaming; or b) think “Phew! Thank goodness I got myself a Debra Winger costume!” ?

In next month’s podcast we’ll be discussing PICILFs. That’s right: People In Costume We’d Like To…. well, you know.

So, which costumes/uniforms do it for you? Go on – leave a comment below. You can use a pseudonym if you like. (BSB boys – I’ll know if it’s you.)

*UPDATE* Which outfits made it onto our list? Listen to Episode 14 to find out!

PEOPLE YOU RESPECT – BUT DON’T ACTUALLY *LIKE*

24/11/2008

No, not everyday people in your life – we don’t mean your boss. We mean rock and pop stars. The people you know you’re supposed to like.

You know: the musicians who you respect and everything, and you know they’re very good and all that, and you can obviously objectively admire their work, and blah blah blah – but let’s face it: they don’t really do it for you. You don’t really love ’em.

Top of my list? This man:

elvis costello

Agree? Disagree? Want to beat me senseless with a copy of This Year’s Model? Well, who’s on your list? The Bullshit Bingo crew will be discussing this topic in the next podcast – so please do leave a comment and tell us!

*UPDATE* Find out who made our final list by listening to Episode 14.
