thanks to steve shure and tom behringer for providing the excellent microphone technology employed in our 'What Hi-Fi?'approved introduction.
thanks also to all the people working slavishly behind the scenes to ensure that we bring you only the best in stumbling inarticulacy.

Go To Woolworths: A Millennial Insult

Compliment Sandwich podcast 05 is now edited and ready to hit the information waves.

This episode was recorded live at Stanley Picker Gallery in February 2009. What began as a fun pub quiz soon devolved into a tortuous experience for all involved. Many of the rounds had to be left out, champagne was stolen from fridges and wet sponges were thrown at one and all.

Quiz team names included:
- Untitled (predominantly made up of Arts Professionals)
- The Bap Tizered (predominantly made up of art students)
- The Lovers (a couple)
- Team Tollywood (glamorous ladies)
- The Wank Stains (keeping it real)

Quiz team names not used:
- Quizteam Aguillera
- Quizzy Rascal
- Quizmas Time, Mistletoe and Wine
- I Just Want Your Extra Time and Your ......... Quiz!

Prizes included:
- Sparkling wine
- Bacardi Breezers
- Snowballs
- Chocolate coins
- A mug

Many Thanks to the judging panel and to all the participants. It was a killer evening. General Knowledge is still recovering from the event. It was so awesome he had to miss drill practice the next day.

Beer and Wine? Fine. Wine and Beer? Splendid.

In this episode we discuss quietly amongst ourselves such topics as real ale (the pitfalls of), coffee (the pitfalls of), beards (the pitfalls of), your voice (the intricacies of) and the previous podcast (how reflexive!).

Guest jingles provided by a slowed down midi version of Snap's 'Rhythm is a Dancer'.

Dead Men Wear Plaid

As the final survivor in a post-apocalyptic society populated by flesh-eating zombies:

Ben would:

- live in Dudley Zoo
- befriend animals giving them names such as Reasonable Gareth, Grandad and Chelmsley Wood
- build an enormous unfinished scalextric track/ fantasy wargame
- shave off his beard as there would be no-one left to mock his weak jaw line and round face

Phil would:
- relocate centre of operations to pub
- devote a number of buildings to his collections of interesting handicrafts
- drive a number of vehicles, hand-painted with made-up emblems
- record endless podcasts, referring to the many notes stored upon his mobile phone

Message ends.

The Best of Times The Wurst of Times

"I learned somewhere that the best way to give criticism is to compliment, then give constructive criticism, then compliment again. I think they called it a “compliment sandwich,” which is stupid because you’re supposed to name a sandwich after whatever’s on the inside. "

from the internet's 'theskepticsguide.org', p.74

Compliment Sandwich 02 is now available for download. RSMFS. It's great that you're interested in the podcast. Why weren't you interested sooner? Nevertheless it's really good to have someone like you on board.
