GSFN Show 30: Gay Sci-Fi Nerds, the musical

In our most musically themed show yet, Drew kicks starts the podcast with a big opening theme tune in which, like Dennis Waterman, he wrote the feem toon and sang the feem toon. Skip talks about yet another all-night horror movie film fest in London, this time spending eleven hours watching all five films from the Saw franchise at the BFI IMAX. Did Drew go, not a chance in hell, stating he’d rather chop his own foot off then subject himself to that shite. Drew and Skip also take the opportunity to talk about a couple of dishes from their favourite Chinese restaurant in China Town, Won Kei, and namely which dishes to avoid.

Drew and Skip go on to talk about their latest trip to London to attend a charity concert by the Philharmonia Orchestra, in aid of poor and desperate actors, performing the works of Barry Gray. Best know for his collaborations with Gerry Anderson and celebrating the Centenary of Barry Gray’s birth, he’s best know for composing the music for Thunderbirds, Stingray, Joe 90 and Space 1999.

Included are live recordings taken on the evening of the concert as your hosts head to the South Bank and Festival Hall. Skip get unnerved at pulling out his equipment in a bad part of town and Drew interviews a couple of people attending the concert, including a band know as The Adventures of Parsley.

Quantum of Solace gets a review as Drew and Skip compare and contrast their thoughts on the latest Daniel Craig Bond movie and a finally, Skip and Drew save the last until the end as they announce the winners of the Gay Sci-Fi Nerds Podcast Show Competition.

  1. LOL this was an excellent show guys! 🙂 I loved hearing about your trip to the Philharmonia Orchestra 🙂 It’s almost like I was there! 🙂

    Just two comments:

    1) The phrases “Well Anyway..”, and “Anyway…” are the glue that holds together the thoughts of every gay man on the planet. So I don’t know why you guys are fighting it .. just go with it and bask in the glory of it all.

    2) The guy Marc Roman who won the Competition is my little protege. He’s not really a full Sci-Fi nerd yet but I am trying to teach him the fine art of it, and I am happy to say he’s coming along fine. He’s listening to the podcast and I am introducing him to cool classic sci-fi movies to watch. The package you send to him will go a LONG way of pushing him down the correct path :). So congrats to him and thanks you guys for doing a cool competition! 🙂

  2. And what did you think of Drew’s musical opening 😉

    We’re glad you’re enjoying the podcast, shame we couldn’t have a little segue from you.

    So how the heck do you know Marc from the Netherlands? Funny fact, I think the guy from the Netherlands we met at the Barry Gray concert said we was from Harleen.

  3. I hate the tube, too. A tube of hot sweaty uglies with bad breath and god knows what bacteria. Buses are better. But I often take taxis in or across London. I think you two have a food fetish. You linger over the food descriptions very tellingly. Chinese vomit? Try Japanese and ask for natto. Give it a good sniff first!
    Glad you are back doing the podcasts, thought you had given up. And, how did you get Devon to rhyme with Heaven. Good job you stopped at Devon and no gone on to Cornwall. What could you rhyme with that? Hehe.

  4. His musical opening was spectacular! You should use it in every show.

    Marc and I met via the internet. He’s coming to spend xmas with us this year.
    It was weird that there seemed to be some cosmic Netherland subplot through the show 🙂

  5. I used to live in the Netherlands, too. In Den Haag. In Trompstraat. Its my second home.

    I liked the musical opening. I was surprised you to took it past a few lines and finished the whole song. Are there going to be more?

  6. “Good job you stopped at Devon and no gone on to Cornwall. What could you rhyme with that?”

    Instantly this come to mind –

    From Scotland to old Cornwall, We love them cocks, big or small
    Were not size queens by no means, ooh ooh shoot your load!
