Episode 17 – Sci-fi sexiness, global pandemics, fantasy interviews and, er, Cannon and Ball!

11/05/2009

Having taken a short sabbatical at our Buddhist meditation retreat in the Nepalese mountains, we’re back with the all-singing, all-dancing, all-new…

<<< BULLSHIT BINGO EPISODE 17! >>>

Yes, this month, we discuss such diverse, wide-ranging, varied and, er, multifarious topics as the intrinsic link between these futuristic femmes-fatales:

Erin Gray

Carrie Fisher

Sigourney Weaver

Also, there’s Formula 1, Howard Hughes, TV partnerships we have known and loved, Mexican swine flu, whether or not Oprah Winfrey is still eating fast food, Sean as a 16 year old, Tom in his slip-ons, and Eddie stealing fast food from a small child (possibly).

Also also, this month, and for all subsequent months (unless we can persuade her to re-appear as a guest star), we shall sadly be without the diverse, wide-ranging, varied and…well, anyway, the many talents of our cohort in conversation, Andrea.

For some reason, Andrea has decided that international musical superstardom is more glamorous than sitting around a rickety table talking about who she’d like to get off with, so if you would like to help her along the way, please invest in her excellent new CD, which is currently shifting big units (if that doesn’t make her sound too much like Aussie Man & Van) in the Far East.

Finally, and as always, we have cunningly inserted a deliberate mistake into Episode 17. The first listener who manages to spot this will receive a hearty pat on the back and a year’s supply of Bullshit Bingo absolutely free – yes, that’s right, absolutely free! By way of a subtle hint, the mistake has something to do with this man:

Happy listening, and watch this space for more info about our glorious 18th birthday episode…

WHAT DEAD ROCK STARS WOULD BE DOING NOW

20/10/2008

Tom speculates that Elvis Presley would have turned from this:

into this:

While Sean ponders the alternative career progressions of Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison; and Eddie hazards a guess as to what Nick Drake might be up to now. Hint: it’s not that different from what he was up to when he was alive.
