Topic: How to Make 2017 Not Suck

 

  • Oktober wants all classic rock musicians and celebrities monitored for health this upcoming year. Nabbit points out that every rock star who makes it to their second album has achieved a milestone.

 

  • We celebrate Major Monocles big 3-0…although everyone still calls him a fetus…a fetus with back pain.

 

 

  • Major Monocle plans on continuing his journey with his motorcycle. He’s got no particular plan, other than to try and stay upright and alive. As Nabbit puts it Major Monocles goal is to…”Ride Bikes, Don’t Die, Make A Friend.”

 

  • Luke plans on enjoying a year filled with “Days of Wine and Roses” (minus all the misogyny and domestic abuse) and deal with the repercussions next year. Nabbit has difficulty seeing as to how that’s any sort of change. Luke strives for a blissful haze.

 

 

 

 

Game: “Drink It” Or “Sink It” Challenge :

The End of The World

 

Based of the idea of a long island (ie a drink to get you lit). Oktober says it’s a drink for when Andrew WK is at your party and you need everything to happen really quick! Major Monocle can’t seem to get past the gin (solution: more Rum!). The panel gets a bit of an alcohol shine and recollects on the times spent with 151. Give it a try (recipe is the previous post to these show notes) Drink this one Responsibly!

Title: Long Winter Nights

Run Time: 20 min 50 secs

Host: Luke Rodgers

Panelists: Oktober, Nabbit

Topic: Dealing with Long Winter Nights

 

  • Long Winter nights affect people differently. Oktober likes this time of year because she doesn’t feel as “under the microscope” during the night time (she’s a night owl by nature).

 

  • Nabbit brings up Alaska and their extreme long winter nights. Although none of us have ever been, Nabbit has researched it a lot because of his own sleep problems. He talked about all the medical things that can happen when a community goes collectively mad when not seeing the sun for weeks.

 

 

 

  • Medical professionals and patients in hospitals have to contend with a condition coined “ICU Madness” which relates to how your body determines the time of day.

 

 

 

 

Game: Story Time! : Holiday Hustle Edition

This game was previously called “Fake News”….but as we all know that phrase is fun no longer. So we’ve changed the name and kept the fun. So in the following tales the panel has to fill in the missing details.

 

 

  • Last minute holiday shoppers in a local store got more than cheap deals this year. Security camera footage showed that patrons who were in the store 20 minutes before closing for the night got an unwelcome suprise with their purchases. What did the footage show?

 

  • Local tree farms say that they are planning on making changes to their business practices for next year’s christmas season. Recent shifts in buying trends are leading producers to offer a new range of services….what are some of these?

 

  • Move over Egg Nog there’s a new holiday beverage in town. With the proliferation of various types of -Nog showing up on grocery store shelves in recent years (including pumpkin, caramel and peppermint) one national producer has bet big on it’s new creation. Panel…what flavor is it?

Topic: Style Notes for Your Office Holiday Party

 

  • First up Santa Hat…yay or nay?   Oktober has her favorite black one…Most people seem to agree…these are not ok. Nabbit rocks the Santa hat for at least the week before xmas regardless.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Game: “Drink It” Or “Sink It” Challenge

 

Time for some “Sex on the Couch.” It’s sweet, dirty and over pretty quick. Oktober says that it tastes better than it looks and Nabbit notes that it looks like river water. But everyone enjoyed it even though it is very sweet. Give it a try (the recipe is in the post previous to these notes) and let us know what you think….about the drink, not actually having sex on a couch.

Title: Drones and the Lexicon Obscuria

Run Time: 23 min 18 secs

Host: Luke Rodgers

Panelists: Oktober, Nabbit

Topic: Drones: What They Can and Cannot Do

 

  • Oktober talks about the drones in “Run Away” (with Gene Simmons!) which leads to a series of karaoke remakes of famous songs…unfortunately we’re the ones doing the singing.

 

  • Nabbit and Oktober that most drones we see are really just toys (or as Nabbit puts it, “RC Cars that Fly“). Oktober compares them to RC Helicopters from 15 years ago, but everyone pushes back on that a little.

 

  • Nabbit points out that a drone cannot make him breakfast, however Luke counters that argument with the fact that it could, at least, deliver him breakfast.

 

 

 

  • How About Changing a light bulb?….. Sorta.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Game: Lexicon Obscuria

This game is a simple word game with un-simple words. The panel tries to decode the meanings of these strange, but true words.

Topic: Who from Pop Culture will be remembered in 50 years?

 

 

 

 

 

  • Nabbit continues, but switches to the world of musical acts…with Bruno Mars. Luke wonders whether he has staying power and/or will make a large enough cultural impact. Nabbit does not think we have reached peak “Mars.”

 

 

 

  • Nabbit thinks Lady Gaga will make a lasting impact. Everyone agrees, if only because of the meat dress.

 

 

  • Nabbit, Luke and Oktober agree that Jackie Chan is certainly one who has made it into the world’s collective consciousness. Language barriers aside, the man has been in over 150  movies and can sing Elvis songs… in 50 years there will be shrines made.

 

  • As for who will certainly be forgotten…Everybody Else. Special mention goes out to The Kardashians (Major Monocle wasn’t there to defend them).

 

 

Game: “Drink It” Or “Sink It” Challenge

Time for a shot….the “Sailor On Shore Shot.” This one gets it’s name because if you can still say it’s name, you’re not drunk. Everyone enjoyed this one, however Nabbit became fascinated with the Sobe Elixir Morning Patrol. Nabbit wanted that with just Coconut rum. To be fair, there’s a lot of it left over after making a few of these so it’s worth experimenting with. The recipe is available in the post before this one so get some friends together and give it a shot.
