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

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.

THE MOST UNDERRATED POP STARS

24/11/2008

Recognise this man?

tr

No?¬† Well, that’s because he really should be more famous.

Listen to Episode 13 to find out who he is, who he might possibly have had angry sex with – and which other musicians we think are greatly underrated. (Note: Bucks Fizz not featured this time.)

And do tell us who *you* think is great, and yet insufficiently recognised. (Note: Bucks Fizz are allowed. I wish I’d said Five Star, too.)

COOL VS UNCOOL

21/07/2008

Or to put it another way: ‘Why does everyone suddenly hate Coldplay?’

Neil Diamond. Dolly Parton. They used to be uncool, but now they’re cool.

Coldplay. They used to be cool, but now they’re uncool.

Confused? So are we. Fortunately, Eddie can explain all.

Who would you add to our list of rehabilitated/newly pilloried stars? And do you hate the obvious music tastes of white, middle-class, thirtysomething men as much as Andrea? Don’t hold back now…

STARS WE USED TO FANCY… AND WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE NOW

21/07/2008

Ah, schoolboy/girl crushes! Where are they now?

In Kim Wilde‘s case, doing the gardening:















To justify my choice: here’s Alan Alda as Hawkeye Pierce in M*A*S*H (get it now, fellas?!):



















Kylie Minogue then and now (I don’t quite get what Tom’s going on about):




And for Sean, the new-look Cyndi Lauper:



















And you, dear reader/listener? Who were your crushes? Come on, tell us. We won’t tell (we’ll just put your comment live).
