Rum Doings Episode 75: Bedbuggery

by on Jun.24, 2011, under Rum Doings, The Rest

Welcome to Rum Doings… Late. Episode 75 was recorded after midnight, which means things are a little more… sexxxxy. It must be listened to after midnight, naked. Ideally on a creaky leather sofa.

We’re not discussing whether Madonna’s gone too far with her latest reinvention. But instead do discuss dipping biscuits in wine, and Nick quite alarmingly holds John’s hand. There’s chatter about booth babes, prosperity preaching, and the singularity.

Find out about the nature of Nick’s aquatic affair with John’s sister, find a middle name for Laura, and what John and Laura’s vows should be. Especially to Dexter. And it’s all so sexxxxxxxxxxxxxy. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Late night. Mmmmmmmm.

    So I’m actually going to listen to this naked now, on a creaky leather sofa.

  • James Campbell

    It’s not midnight yet!

  • Mike

    Mhhhhmmm yes, what a great episode.Mmmmhmmmmhmmmmm

  • Aaron

    I am quite happy to say that, coincidentally, I did listen to this episode just after midnight. And when John said it was 3 minutes to 1am, it was also in real-life.

    Do I win a prize?

  • Alex Bakke

    James C: I fell asleep; will listen tonight.

  • Gassalasca

    Damn you, Nickenjohn, damn you! You made me laugh out loud again, first on the bus, and then in the lift with and older man I didn’t know.

  • GravitasShortfall

    Incidentally, I did listen to this while having a late night bath before bed. So that was… An odd start.

  • devlocke

    I really like John’s creepy-voice. He should do that more often.

  • MrsTrellis

    The sofa’s for sale on Ebay right now! Move quickly for a piece of Rum Doings memorabilia!

    I guess my problem with Nicks gloom and doom scenario regarding fossil fuels is that is presupposes that all oil in the world will run out at roughly the same time. Besides the fact that each OPEC state will run out at different times, there are still untapped reserves in wildlife reserves, offshore locations, and deep underwater. Oil won’t disappear, but the cost will skyrocket. And when it does, other resources will suddenly become cheaper relatively speaking. Solar thermal and photovoltaic power production will become more popular, sugar ethanol will replace gas, and synthetic oils will replace conventional ones. It won’t be a smooth transition, obviously, and he’s right that planes and long distance travel will become largely an activity of the super rich.

  • Nick Mailer

    Oil will never run out. It’ll just become too expensive to burn. And there are no replacements except Nuclear that give us the economic bounty that oil did. And we have just rejected nuclear.

    As for long distance travel: I can well believe that coal-powered transatlantic liners will make a comeback.

  • Arthur

    Coal will continue to supply energy to cities in the US. We’ve got the largest world supply of it.

    John, surely by rule #1 you now have to go and quit your job and create a bottom-sex based bedroom furnishings shop entitled ‘Bedbuggery’?

  • innokenti

    John’s seedy voice is creepy. Stop it.

  • Blissett

    I may never recover from the trauma of John’s mmmmmmmm’ing at the end of this episode.
