I was looking forward to playing “Name that Movie” this week where Rob competes with another contestant to see who can name a movie based on a short clip. I couldn’t coordinate Rob’s schedule with any potential contestants. I can’t just pick anyone to play against Rob. It has to be someone that I think would be fun to have on the podcast as well as someone who knows enough about movies to be a good competitor. Instead I decided to do the best of my popular Real Books/Fake Excerpts segment where I take a real book, which I didn’t write, and read a fake excerpt, which I did write. The books I read fake excerpts from were “Labradoodles, A Complete Pet Owner’s Manual”, “The Man Who Made Lists: Love, Death, Madness, and the Creation of Roget’s Thesaurus”, “Here’s Johnny: My Memories of Johnny Carson, The Tonight Show and 46 Years of Friendship, “Emily Post’s Etiquette”: The Definitive Guide to Manners” and Shakespeare’s “Henry V”. After this we did this news where we discussed, among other things, Rima Fakia, the first Arab American to win the Miss USA pageant, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal’s bogus claims of having been in Nam, and motorcycle mogul Jesse James’ interview where he discussed his failed marriage to Sandra Bullock. Next week – “Name that Movie”.
