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 11 – BOARD GAMES, CONSPIRACY THEORIES, FILM THEME SONGS – AND OLYMPIC ATHLETES WE FANCY

31/08/2008

The name’s Thompson. Daley Thompson.

It’s the August podcast – and Tom’s missing. Has he been kidnapped by aliens? No, because that would be a conspiracy theory, and we don’t believe those.

Yes, we’re back – back! – and this month, we’re pontificating about the greatest ever film theme songs, the most believable conspiracy theories, the board games we used to know and love, and the athletes we know and would love to do.

Technical note: because Tom is our technical guru, Andrea and Sean had to learn how to record and edit this podcast using Fisher Price’s My First Podcasting Software – so it sounds ever-so-slightly different from our usual episodes. Hopefully, however, we still retain our charm.

Please leave comments and tell us what you think. And who you’d like us to discuss schtoofing next time.

WHITHER FILM THEME SONGS?

31/08/2008

There was a time when movies had cracking theme songs. Shaft. The Way We Were. Arthur’s Theme. Take My Breath Away.

OK, so that time was clearly the 70s and 80s.

Since then, it’s all been generic movie soundtracks – apart from the James Bond stable, of course.

Which is your favouritest movie song? And should Amy Winehouse be recording the title track to Quantum of Solace? As long as she can find a rhyme for ‘solace’, that is?

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).
