Rum Doings Episode 201: A Revelatory Outburst

by on Sep.29, 2015, under Rum Doings

In our 201th ever Rum Doings, our topic is shouldn’t the United States simply adopt A4?

Recorded a couple of weeks back, this episode features the wondrous thunderous Judge Coxcombe, and we discuss Game Of Thrones Christmas toys, the poor greenscreen of Once Upon A Time, our daemons, and our favourite Star Treks. And then, somehow, European politics.

    Judge Coxcombe’s “pig fucker” phrase was prescient wasn’t it.

    Robert Duncan McNeill is doing alright as a producer and director. The Voyager actor who’s completely fallen off the deep end is Jennifer Lien:

    wrt the Cline novel’s video game reference being contemporary: Portal came out eight years ago.

    Nick tried to explain our idea for a Star Trek reboot but was rudely talked over. So I shall inflict it here. Federation: following the President’s minions as they attempt to paper over the cracks of the disintegrating alliances and endemic corruption. They’d have a spaceship too because we like spaceships and battles and stuff.

    You need to talk more about My Little Pony.

    WRT Nick’s comment about whether the sudden change in attitudes to gay people being replicable with other matters- certainly, you could also look at attitudes towards drugs as another interesting example of that. The country that has always been one of the most vehement pro drug-prohibition places in the world, now has two states where weed is legal, and a few more where it virtually is as well. I wonder if we’ll be seeing a massive shift in federal drug laws and public attitudes in the US in the next 10 years. Perhaps also for attitudes to climate change.

    US opinion on marriage equality reached a tipping point when the public realized it wasn’t threatened by normal-looking white folks who wanted to tie the knot.

    The same kind of attitudes are what drive the differences in sentencing for possession of crack vs cocaine.

    The D&D cartoon is exactly as terrible and amazing as John says. He didn’t even get to talking about FREAKING TIAMAT!
