The Slap and Ovation Delta

It’s a fairly rare event these days when an event in the pop culture realm becomes something everyone has a take on. But that’s what happened earlier this week when Will Smith launched the Slap Heard ‘Round The World and as such, the men of GLoP answered our Bat Signal and recorded this show. But they don’t just opine on the Fresh Prince’s pugilism. They take a look back at the career of Bruce Willis on the announcement of his retirement from acting, parse Madison Cawthorn’s claim that he regularly attends orgies and explain the proper etiquette if one should find oneself at such an event, and then they tell a few jokes that may not be 100% family friendly. Consider yourself and your children warned.

    On the subject of the lives celebrities live today and not being able to go to restaurants, I think this is another casualty of social media. I can remember going to Chasen’s many times in the late 80’s and early 90’s with my parents. Somehow, we always had a booth in the front, and not only did I regularly see George Burns at the front booth, but the lineup of booths one night was literally: George Burns, opposite booth Barbara Eden, next booth Frank & Barbara Sinatra with Gregory & Veronique Peck, then weirdly, us, and Jimmy Stewart having dinner with friends across from us. Everyone could go out and live their lives. Billy Wilder at a sidewalk cafe table. Ann Miller at the drugstore. This was the Hollywood version of normal. They were able to live their lives in relative peace and were a helluva lot more famous than Will Smith will ever be.

    I meant, no closing music credit in the “show notes.”

    This hasn’t shown up in the feed on my pocketcasts app yet.  Is there an issue?

    For all your orgy and kink listening needs be sure to listen all the way to the end.

    It’s there now. Sorry — new hosting system since we did the last episode. I will fire myself now.

    Well, now that we’ve got a gap in our workforce – welcome back!  At 2x your salary, as a contractor.

    See how everybody wins here?

    I would love to hear Rob, Jonah, and John discuss the HBO streaming series “Julia”; we binged the first three episodes yesterday. I’d appreciate Jonah’s take on being a producer on PBS, Rob’s on TV, and Johns…because you can’t have too much crushing morosity (it’s why I listen to The Commentary podcast every day).

    Already the 19th, and still no FIRST “episode” for April.

    We’re likely only going to do one GLoP this month and it will probably be next week.

    Pfft!  Mr. P. told the S&M joke a while ago on this podcast.  The correct punchline is still “no!” (in the canonical Playboy Party Jokes form published sometime around 1967).  “Later!” makes zero psycho-sexual (or rhythmic) sense.

    I’ve heard the thing delivered only once by a professional–in a Señor Wences voice.  Don’t remember who it was, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t Señor Wences.  Arguably that is the way to do it.

    Yeah that’s how I’ve always heard it too.  I suppose the “argument” would be that the unknown/indefinite suspense would be more “excruciating” but I don’t buy it.

    I picked the wrong podcast as my favourite.

    No you didn’t. We’re just dealing with some scheduling issues this month that could not be avoided and should be back to a regular schedule next month. I can tell you that next week’s episode will be a “Super-Sized” episode.

    Relax. I’m a nagging old woman trapped in the body of a man.
