Topic: Sexiest Celebrities of All Time

 

 

  • Luke begins with Veronica Lake. A distinctive look during a short career, but one that worked its way into the cultural lexicon. A look that eventually helped form the design of Jessica Rabbit. Luke recommends listening to the podcast You Must Remember This if you’re interested in her story and others from that era.

 

  • Oktober and Nabbit discuss Marilyn Monroe and how she seems glamorized to such an extent as to be unattainable. Nabbit brings up Audrey Hepburn as someone who is beautiful, but not made of Hollywood.

 

 

  • Nabbit thinks that Scarlett Johansson is a clear contender for “Sexiest Celebrity” because of her beauty, personality and her photogenic aura.

 

 

  • Nabbit brings up Zooey Deschanel. Luke brings up the stylistic similarities with Betty Page.

  • Oktober reels of in rapid fire fashion three more contenders… Kate Beckinsale, Olivia Wilde and Halle Berry. Luke talks about having issues separating some of those actresses from the roles they play. Oktober brings up the movie “Butter” as a way to poke holes in that issue.

 

  • Moving on to the Men…Luke has his one and only. The most perfect man in all of history…Hugh Jackman. From singing to dancing, all the way to action and stunts…he’s got it all. Plus he’s no slouch in the kitchen, either.

 

  • Nabbit mocks the appeal of Mick Jagger. Then starts down his list of epic sexy men…starting with Sean Connery. William Shatner (although there is some dispute as to when was his prime “Sexy” phase). Nabbit puts in a quick vote for Major Monocle’s (who was not present) prime choice…Chuck Norris.

 

 

 

Game:  Sexy Quotes

 

This is a simple game. Here’s a quote from some famous person about sex and celebrity status…all you have to do is figure out who said it.

 

  • “I need more sex, OK? Before I die I wanna taste everyone in the world.”
  • “I am hoping that I can be known as a great writer and actor some day, rather than a sex symbol.”

 

  • “I thank God I was raised Catholic, so sex will always be dirty.”
  • “I think we can all agree that sleeping around is a great way to meet people.”

Topic: Stupid Questions You’ve Been Asked

 

 

 

  • Luke talks about stupid questions that were really just misunderstandings. Mainly because he uses jargon sometimes that people aren’t familiar with.

 

 

  • Nabbit talks about his managerial experience. He’s the cool manager, people trust him. But sometimes they forget he’s still a manager and ask, “Should I look for a new job?” He also wonders why they all talk about it in “Up speak.”

 

 

  • Oktober gets a lot of questions about tattoos… “I got this tattoo and it bled and has a scab on it…. did the person who did it screw up?” As Oktober has to point out to many people, a tattoo is an open wound.

 

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

 

The Tahiti Club is aromatic tiki style drink made with Rum and Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur mixed with lemon, lime and pineapple flavors. It’s a good time garden in a glass. Everybody loved the fragrance of the cocktail. Oktober some of the tart flavors and Nabbit was very interested in what the Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur. The recipe appears in the post before these show notes so give it a try and let us know what you think.

Topic: Circus Performances and Sideshows

 

  • The panel talks about how the circus was once a place of wonder because you didn’t see exotic places through a screen.

 

 

  • Nabbit talks about how he was at a three ring circus just last year (in a mall parking lot). He talks about some of the acts ( lions, elephants and the Ball of Death) and about the amazing logistics of putting it all together.

 

 

 

  • Luke talks about remembering sideshows being more like animals and museum pieces. He refers to the “World’s Largest Crocodile” which he’s not really sure it was alive or a statue painted to look real.

 

  • Nabbit thinks that circuses are on the down slope currently, but they’ll have a resurgence given enough time.

 

  • The panel finishes up with praise for the hard working carny folk.
