Rum Doings Episode 183: Not Enough Small Pox

by on Mar.19, 2015, under Rum Doings

In our 183rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is, is Elton John letting the side down?

Nick explains his disappointment with those who die, and indeed his father’s computer skills, and then we’re joined by special guest, Toby. Nick really needs to say a thing about logo aesthetics, and then tells John off for calling Toby a boy. We ponder how UKIP thinks Britain would work without immigration, and then ask if you can have purpose without infinity.

There are attempts to imagine a way Milliband could be spun to the nation, consideration of the next election, and Toby’s views on the Conservative party. Then Nick makes QUITE the confession about The Big Bang Theory, we rue the youth’s ignorance of Larry Sanders, and laugh at NVidia.

    I think what Nick was suggesting (re Terry Pratchett’s cause of death) was if the family quietly went with the assisted suicide solution.

    I wondered the same. I was a huge fan of his, he has been a fixture in my life since I read the Bromeliad trilogy when I was about 10.

    You might not enforce gender as a parent but soceity will, through what they consider normal boy/man behaviour. Its even as simple as the words we use, many times ive been called a woman in a sense that your gender shouldn’t be doing that even by women.

    Actually, it is possible to get hold of Sky Go, which is Sky’s online player, without having a sky subscription.

    They make it an absolute nightmare to find, but it does apparently exist. I plan to give it a go for when the new Game of Thrones comes out, even if it does mean giving Mr. Murdoch his due.

    As a 28-year-old who loves comedy, I can confirm that a)I’d never heard of Larry Sanders prior to listening to RD, and b)both times I tried watching it I stopped after the first couple of episodes, having found it utterly unfunny.

    This is why I have no other option than to conclude that it must be a generational thing.

    I’ve thought for years that Miliband’s (main) problem isn’t that he’s weird, it’s that he never owned his weirdness.

    If he’d just stood up and been himself (insofar as a politician can today), it wouldn’t be such a cringeworthy thing to see him acting like a big awkward pillock. Instead he’s desperately tried to hide it, and thus been forever dismissed by most of the electorate as a hopeless weirdo.

    Obviously he has other problems, but even some of those follow on from the same principle.
