FYCL #23 – My Dubious Valentine

Gushing enthusiasm about Victorian social history, advising on how to enrage a Creative Anachronism person (mind the sword), venting about Google Buzz, pointing and lauging at Esquire and wounded masculinity in Superbowl ads, and failing utterly at finding a dubious sex toy for V-Day.

Linkers:

Closing music was “I Enjoy Being a Girl” because it was clearly what those chaps at Esquire were listening to.

FYCL #22 – Hang up and pee.

Shy pee-ers hand out some advice on relationships, just in time to confuse you before Valentine’s day. We follow up on SJ’s experience with the vulva dye, discuss what’s bad (and good) about Cosmo, contemplate the romantic politics of gifts, and give you a ton of recommendations to have fun with.

FYCL #21 – Legally drunk.

Feeling like you need some healthy lifestyle advice? There’s none here. Instead, there’s snark about ballet gear, early mornings, special snowflakes, whether feminism sucks the fun out of stuff, how fucked up we have to be to need vulva dye, and our usual recommendations.

FYCL #20 – The Art of Podcasting.

Break your January slump with advice (and smack talk) about divorced spouses and step-parents, babysitting and how to avoid it, tetchy ranting about goddamn anti-feminists, and we Ask a Dude about Manliness. As usual there are recommendations, and a highly offensive Dubious Sex Toy.

Link! the Hero of Time:

Closing music is “Sound the Trumpet” by Purcell sung by the James Bowman and the luscious Daniel Taylor, because all that talk of Manliness made me long for some really fruity counter-tenors.

FYCL # 18 – Mostly bitching.

Very little advice, but a good deal of bitching about getting ready to eat at Xmas, children who want to change their names, dealing with stink, and new developments in the whorehouse business.

The first days of linkmas:

Music was “Who put the Spring in Springfield”; the Burlesque House song from The Simpsons episode “Bart After Dark,” which is well worth watching if you can find it on Hulu or in reruns, or similar.

FYCL #17 – Wildly Undisciplined.

Dubious advice on enjoying the holiday season, including dealing with family, feminist hypocrisies, and Generation Snow. Extended Dubious Sex Toy discussion is about fundamentalist Christianity and kink; we also have a non-dubious sex toy amongst our recommendations.

Linkage:

Music at the end was “Gabriel’s Message” by Sting, an excellent advent carol, because now that it is on advent, I am on a mission to see how much Christmas music I can get in to the podder before SJ’s head asplode.

FYCL #16 – Sexy, sexy hamsters.

Dubious advice on making cocktails with bacon, whether couples can make friends, confronting the idea of humourless feminists when people make sexist jokes, and the homework denial controversy. As usual, we have Dubious Sex Toy and our recommendations for the week.

Apologies for the coughing husband in the background.

Closing music is a shout-out to Mr Falor; it’s Hoppipolla by Sigur Ros.

FYCL #15 – GGB on BBG

Dubious advice on being angry about holiday cooking and/or marking, encouraging girls to do science, indoctrinating young men into the ways of feminism and dealing with scheduling during the holidays. Ask a Dude returns to consider the logistics of a BBG threesome; there’s an extremely Dubious Sex Toy, and some great recommendations.

Linkzors:

  • Belle de Jour’s blog, which is hotting up at the moment with juicy back and forth about the revealing of her identity.
  • Times news story and follow-up on Belle de Jour and the revelation of her identity.
  • Caroline Moore is the teenage astronomer we uselessly could not remember, and she found a supernova.
  • For those of you who have been living under a rock – Sarah Bunting’s awesome Yes You Are.
  • Looks like Double X is getting folded back into Slate.
  • Wildly inappropriate gnome dildo video. Click at own risk!! Further research determines that it was intended to be a sex toy, but I haven’t seen a vendor of same online. Even google is shocked and horrified.
  • HUGE props to the Bugger for finding a reference to the actual gnome dildo, although it appears they are not currently available for purchase.
  • Gay Sex in Dragon Age: Origins, pointed out on the Queerty blog, which is worth a bit of a browse for its other content, too.
  • On being a Bad Mother, by Sandra Tsing Loh, from the Atlantic online.

Apologies for sound quality – both of us were having internets issues this week. I have sorted mine out (fingers crossed).

Closing music is 3 by Britney Spears, chosen OBVIOUSLY, for thematic rather than musical merit.

FYCL #14 – Champagne Quality Podcasting

Dubious advice on how root beer is not ginger beer, drinking, especially champagne, dealing with people you disagree with, the pursuit of feminism, whether helicopters can be brought to Jeebus, and what to do when your child is menaced by a dog on the way home. Dubious Sex Toy has a holiday theme, and as always, there are our recommendations.

FYCL #13 – Exploding Soup

Dubious advice on how not to pack soup in your bag, lost and found, making choux pastry, dating someone with kids, having a feminist epiphany, whether biography is a dead art, and how to recognize a chick flick. As always, we have a Dubious Sex Toy of the week, and our recommendations.

Not much linkage this week:

Dubious Vintage Sex Toy – a first! We have no idea where this came from originally, but here it is in all its glory. (I was going to put a modesty line, but seriously, it doesn’t even look that rude, or perhaps my perceptions of “rude” have been warped.)

Fascinating side note: FYCL now comes up if you do  a google search for “dubious genitalia”.

Closing music is “Smells like Teen Spirit,” as rendered by the Flying Pickets. Just because.
