Rum Doings Episode 110: Up Your Backside And Down Your Throat

by on Jun.18, 2012, under Rum Doings, The Rest

Welcome to a very echoey episode, Rum Doings 110. Trapped in the attic of Nick’s evil enterprise, the acoustics match the d├ęcor, as we begin as banally as possible by discussing the weather. Then we swiftly leap to poking tubes through all of Nick’s holes.

We question the usefulness of our eyes, and Nick banishes all discussion of free will. John then shares his quiz show schadenfreude, Nick dares to question the Anglican church, and we voice how impressed we are at how the government responds to Leveson. Jigsaws are briefly mentioned before moving on to pointing out how women can’t really do science. There’s a short eulogy to Nick’s cat, Minnie, and then it ends.

Please leave a review on iTunes. We hate iTunes as much as any other sentient individual, but reviews on there are what get podcasts promoted, and we’d love some promotion. After 100 free episodes, we’d love you to pay us back by writing a quick review.

    Why can’t we have an old style Rum Doings with good quality audio, a proper intro that states the topic not to be discussed, an exotic rum choice where you both fetishize it to hell and back and continue on to have a 43 minute talk about amusing stories and or interesting musings? My complaints aren’t completely suited towards this exact episode, but I grow tired of all the new stuff of late. No health stuff, no eluding to the listener or breaking the fourth wall stuff. Just sit down and talk about nice anecdotes!

    Call Me Maybe is an empty-headed, syrupy summer pop songs that doesn’t talk about anything, but it’s so catchy and joyful that I can’t bring myself to dislike it.

    Catchat: one of my childhood pets lasted nearly a decade on a single, partially functional kidney. Even as she lost lost the ability to jump, she was still the alpha cat in my parents’ house. During their regular morning wrestling matches on top of my parents’ bed, she’d be the one to knock the younger, fitter cats off the side.

    I’m curious as to whether Nick remembers calling me a fascist after I ‘posited’ my thoughts on the nature of free will. It must have been around 9 months ago…

    wasd – That’s a classic Not As Good As It Used To Be complaint. Go back and listen to a random old episode and I’m sure you’ll find it just as disappointing. We’ve never planned what we talk about, and so there’s no agenda, no intention to do or not do anything. And we’ve certainly always talked about health and the listener since it started.

    Speaking of putting a camera up a winky, that’s a procedure I’m going to have done tomorrow. If you don’t hear from me again, you’ll know just how well that went.

    I do feel like free will is a solved question, as the answer is clear as soon as you define it carefully.

    Godhelpus – Mr. Jams O’Donnell -are you there? (is the glass moving…?)

    wasd, we allude to the listener, break the fourth wal and talk about health stuff in episode one!

    The good news is that we have some nice new alcohol to fetishise soon, sent to us by a listener.
