Episode 21 – Mockneys, cockneys, 80s remakes, 90s sex scandals and the BBC goes KKK!

13/11/2009

Gaw blimey, love a duck and blow me daahn wiv a fevva! The brand new episode of Bullshit Bingo is brought to you in the mockney style, and I tell you what my love, seeing as the BSB team is feeling generous, you can have it for the knock-down price of twenty pence a paahnd!

Bullshit Bingo Episode 21

Yes, Episode 21 sees us discuss which pearly queens we would like to “do the Lambeth Walk” with. For example

Martine McCutcheon

Wendy Richard

Joss Stone

We also have a good old chin-wag over a cup of Gypsy Rose Lee about 80s films we think should be re-made, and which hot topics the twuts on Twotter should twit about (or something like that), including not-so-magic moments of TV racism like this one.

We even find time to discuss the All-Time Best Sex Scandals of All Time in the History of the World Ever, after this surprising on-screen confession from David Letterman, which just goes to show that The Larry Sanders Show had it right all along.

But we’ll leave you with our comedy moment of the, er, moment, namely the unparalleled genius of Danny Dyer, as discovered by a very observant James fan in the DVD extras for this already forgotten Brit gangster flick.

Episode 20 – From music to movies, news to NILFs – it’s the best (and worst) of the Noughties!

24/09/2009

We’re back after our six-week summer holiday, and seeing as it’s practically 2010 already, we’ve decided to get ahead of the game by discussing the best (and baddest) bits of the Noughties.

***Click here to listen to Bullshit Bingo Episode 20!***

So brace yourselves for our favourite TV shows – for example, this slice of documentary genius from Adam Curtis:

…our musical magic moments – for example, this slice of bastardisatio…er, I mean genius from Missy Elliot and Joy Division:

…and our political highs and lows – for example, this slice of reactionary rhetoric from George Bush (at least we think it’s George Bush…).

Last but not least, we couldn’t talk about anything – least of all the Noughties – without giving it an ILF, so with that in mind, feast your ears and eyes on this little lot (if the BSB team really are gentlemen – which is debatable – then we would appear to prefer brunettes):

Audrey Tatou

Brooke Burke

Teri Hatcher

Episode 19 – TWAGs, rock star deaths, Great British Losers and the Overrated List

27/07/2009

Batten down the hatches, lock up your daughters and leave a note out for the milkman, because the new episode of Bullshit Bingo is available for your listening delectation!

***Click here to listen to Bullshit Bingo Episode 19***

This month sees us discuss the burning question at Wimbledon 2009, namely, which player has the fittest wife, Roger Federer or Andy Roddick?

Mirka Federer

Brooklyn Roddick

In a similarly sporting vein, we also argue over who is or was the greatest British loser of all time, and aside from the obvious candidates, this man is an under-achiever of almost mythical proportions.

Alex Bogdanovic

In fact, if you happen to know who the hell he is, can you drop us a line?

Other folks up for discussion include a certain now-deceased pop / R&B crossover artiste (no, not Luther Vandross), our fellow WordPress bloggers, the Overrated List, and the nearly-was boxing legend Herol Graham.

Listen, enjoy, tell your friends, listen again, inadvertently delete from your iTunes library, experience a network timeout during download, and while you’re at it, say hello to our new pals at Gutter London. New balls, please!

Episode 18 – Arousing adverts, disappearing manners and why even Joanna Lumley should fiddle her expenses!

22/06/2009

This month sees BSB leave no stone un-turned and no stop un-pulled-out, as we sprinkle our satirical fairy dust over everyone from Guy Ritchie to Hazel Blears to people who forget to wave at us as they drive past in their BMW X5.

*** Click here for Bullshit Bingo Episode 18! ***

Among numerous (well, OK, four) topics of conversation, we discuss the advertisements that have made us tingle with consumer excitement, including this one from Coca Cola.

This one from the, er, Coca Cola Corporation.

And this one from the Birds Eye Corporation.

Not to mention a comedy routine from the late, great Bill Hicks about – whadda ya know? – the Coca Cola Corporation.

In addition, we want you to tell us why good manners have become a thing of the past (or, if you’re not as avid a reader of the Daily Mail as Sean, why good manners are alive and well and haven’t gone away at all). In order to start the ball rolling, here’s a site we discovered that conclusively proves how no one gives a damn any more about priority seating on public transport:

As a polite American waiter, waitress or bartender might say: Enjoy, and have a nice day!

Fantasy politicians and dead directors – the warm-up begins for our 18th birthday!

09/06/2009

Normally, your 18th birthday means coming of age, taking on new responsibilities and setting new goals. For Bullshit Bingo, however, it means the complete opposite. If anything, the BSB team are even more stunted, immature and obsessed with the sex lives of minor celebrities than when we first started, and we need to make up for our intellectual shortcomings by asking you, our valued listeners, for your help with Episode 18.

Firstly, the history of politics is littered with z-list high-profile celebrities who wanted to liven up the parliamentary process. For example, these two unlikely candidates have recently expressed their desire to run for office:

Esther Rantzen

Krist Novoselic

We’re thinking they won’t exactly romp home with a huge majority, but if you could vote for anyone come the next election – yes, that’s anyone at all, folks! – who would it be, and why?

Secondly, the history of film-making is littered with great directors, from Cecil B.DeMille to D.W.Griffith to, er, McG, but let’s face it, one or two of them should have hung up their megaphones a good few years ago…

George Lucas

Francis Ford Coppola

So, if you could quietly dispose of a famous film director – with a blunt instrument, for example, and before rolling their body up in a carpet and dumping it in a deserted lay-by – who would it be, and why? We’re not saying that we wish these guys had passed away in tragic circumstances several decades ago. Oh no. We’re just saying that if they had, the cinematic oeuvre would be mercifully free of some distinctly below-par films – like Jack, for example, or Revenge of the Sith – thus making the world a better place. Although not for their immediate friends and family. But anyway, you get the idea.

As usual, we’ll be bowled over with gratitude if you can give us your suggestions, and the best ones will be included in Episode 18 itself. Possibly. If we remember to mention them. Like I say, you get the idea.

EPISODE 15 – INAUGURATION FEVER, CELEBRITY ENCOUNTERS, OSCAR TRAVESTIES AND THE SEXIEST NATIONALITIES

02/02/2009

Yes! We! Did! Record another episode of the podcast, that is.

225px-poster-sized_portrait_of_barack_obama

A new year, a new dawn, and a new edition of the Bullshit Bingo podcast – bringing you Change You Can Believe In from around a table in a front room in Clapham. Well, it’s what Obama would want, isn’t it?

We kick off 2009 with our 15th – count ’em! – episode. During which we discuss big important world events – our man in Washington reporting back from the inauguration –  plus the celebrities we’ve met, the biggest Oscar travesties, and the races of people who set our pulses, well, racing.

*CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO  EPISODE 15*

And we need your help again for next month. Please. Pretty please? We’d like to know which newsreaders do it for you – you know, sex-wise. Not delivering-the-story-well-wise – and also about your most hated management-speak. (If, indeed, you work in a Proper Office like Sean and Eddie, and actually come across management-speak. Tom and Andrea are creative slackers, so are more used to blogger-speak.)

Enjoy the podcast – no, please. Do – and leave your comments on this blog, or on the Book of Face, where we’ll shortly be setting up a fan page. Or whatever it is The Kids do these days. (Link to Facebook to follow shortly.)

It’s good to have us you back.

Lots of love, and thanks for listening,

The BSB Team


AND THE WINNER IS…

02/02/2009

Or rather: the winner should be. Or rather: shouldn’t be.

Yes, it’s silly season – sorry, awards season – and in Episode 15, the Bullshit Bingo team take great delight in discussing their Oscar travesties, including the prospect of this movie sweeping the board this year –

slumdog-millionaire-poster-full

– as well as giving their take on the Most Outstandingly Annoying Performance By An Actress At Any Awards Ceremony Ever:

THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS

23/12/2008

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

walle

This over-achieving fella:

225px-poster-sized_portrait_of_barack_obama

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.

DEAD PEOPLE WE’D LIKE TO BONK

24/11/2008

Never let it be said that the Bullshit Bingo team speak ill of the dead. We speak very well of the dead. So well, in fact, that we discuss which of them we fancy.

Yes, this month’s ‘group of people we’d like to do’* is DPILFS. They include –

jamesdean

and

marilyn

– but were those chosen by the male or female members of the group?! Ahaaa! You’ll have to listen to Episode 13 to find out. And here are some more visual references as you do so:

Lupe Vélez (caramba!) –

Lupe Velez.jpg

and femme fatale Ida Lupino-

5

Sadly, both of these ladies only existed in black and white. I don’t have the heart to tell Tom and Eddie.

So – who makes your list of DPILFs? Do tell! Via the medium of a comment below, preferably.

*Note to newcomers: The discussion of a group of ‘…ILFS’ is a regular segment on Bullshit Bingo

IT’S ENOUGH TO MAKE A GROWN MAN CRY

24/11/2008

Forget what you’ve heard: big boys do cry. Well, the Bullshit Bingo boys do. They – and me, BSB’s token female – discuss which movies have made us blub like girls. They include a modern Pixar classic, a seasonal favourite, a story about a loveable alien (no, not ALF) and this:

ghost1

Listen to Episode 13 to find out what possible excuse Eddie could have for crying at Ghost. I know – it had better be a good one.

And do tell us which films made you cry. Although not because they were a dire romcom that wasted millions of dollars which could have been better spent bringing clean water to the Third World. Yes, You, Me And Dupree, I mean you.
