Sidepodcast Hangout - Awards season // Who would you give an award to if you could?

Published by Christine Blachford

It's that time of year when all the industry bigwigs pat themselves on the back for a job well done. We've seen the Brits this week and the Oscars are later today, so music and film are fully covered! Who would you give an award to if you could, either in music, film or something entirely different? Has anyone missed out at a recent award ceremony, robbed of their rightful statue and speech?




  • Afternoon.

  • Hullo all.

  • Afternoon all. Looked at my watch at 1400 - meant to be :)

  • As someone who co-ordinates one of the most important awards ceremonies of the F1 year, i can't understate their importance ;)

    Stuff like the Brits passes me by though. I watched Muse on them the other day but couldn't get past another 10 minutes or so of the actual awards for a variety of reasons

  • We are out and about for an impromptu Ikea visit today. I wonder how much stuff we will come back with.

    I've still never been to an Ikea!

  • I've still never been to an Ikea!

    Needs to be done once.

  • I've still never been to an Ikea!

    Me neither. Must be something with still living at home.

  • Needs to be done once.

    Argos is closer for stuff like that :)

  • Argos is closer for stuff like that :)

    True. But the whole experience of being directed through the store and having to walk through every department (for fear of getting lost/missing the part you actually want) does need to be had.

  • True. But the whole experience of being directed through the store and having to walk through every department (for fear of getting lost/missing the part you actually want) does need to be had.

    I can't stand stuff like that though so it's probably not the best idea to go. even when I go to The Range I'm in and out within 5 minutes because it's just too much.

    In general shopping isn't one of my stronger points :)

  • I've still never been to an Ikea!

    You must. They have great stuff.

    Argos is closer for stuff like that :)

    Argos does not do meatballs and they are a must every time you go to Ikea. Although I should say I have never eaten at Ikea

  • I think the first award should go to Ryan for his work in promoting the Eurovision Song Contest within the sidepodcast community

  • Is it the Oscars today?

  • Is it the Oscars today?

    Erm, yes?

  • This is the very tentative first step in actually sorting out our setup. Studio 2.0. First stop - furniture that doesn't squeak.

  • Erm, yes?

    Oh, I didn't know until I read the thread blurb. Seems to have popped up out of nowhere

  • Hello. I saw the film BAFTAs the other day, Fry was good despite a fairly bad script. The back-slapping annoyed me a bit. Didn't bother with the Brits this year.

  • True. But the whole experience of being directed through the store and having to walk through every department (for fear of getting lost/missing the part you actually want) does need to be had.

    Then you get meatballs and that chocolate dessert thing.

  • This is the very tentative first step in actually sorting out our setup. Studio 2.0. First stop - furniture that doesn't squeak.

    I have only ever noticed the squeaky furniture once or twice in all the time I have been around SPC

  • Then you get meatballs and that chocolate dessert thing.

    or ligonberries

  • Oh, I didn't know until I read the thread blurb. Seems to have popped up out of nowhere

    I think so... but I do know that the NFLNetwork are putting Ravens Safety Ed Reed on the red carpet, then will be podcasting the results at some point this week.

  • Oh, I didn't know until I read the thread blurb. Seems to have popped up out of nowhere

    Same here

  • Red Bull need an award for Crashed Ice but they need to stop doing it on Saturdays

  • Red Bull need an award for Crashed Ice but they need to stop doing it on Saturdays

    Sundays are the best days to burn afterwards though.

  • although I did notice eric bouiller is presenting the oscars :(

  • Oops, that should be a :)... damn keyboard

  • Sundays are the best days to burn afterwards though.

    But I am always out on Saturdays.

    Anyone fancy Crashed Ice in 3-D

    https://twitter.c…04983200600555521

  • Red Bull need an award for Crashed Ice but they need to stop doing it on Saturdays

    Not when they keep holding it at strange times or at the same times as other things I want to see.

  • But I am always out on Saturdays.

    I miss a lot of hangouts because I'm out on a Sunday afternoon or evening. I'll be out again in an hour or so.

  • Hello! Can't stay, it's after 1am and I'm catching up on the big reunion.

    I mean....sleeping

    *hums bwitched*

  • I mean....sleeping

    That'll never work with us :)

  • Hello! Can't stay, it's after 1am and I'm catching up on the big reunion.

    What reunion is this?

    How was the pizza?

  • What reunion is this?

    only the greatest tv show ever

    How was the pizza?

    disappointing :(

  • only the greatest tv show ever

    It really is!

  • only the greatest tv show ever

    I think I need another clue unless there was a BSB TV show

    disappointing :(

    BOO

  • I think I need another clue unless there was a BSB TV show

    i don't think amy can offer a bigger clue seeing as she's already given you the name of it!

    (psst.. it's called the big reunion..)

  • It really is!

    I'm kind of mad Blue have joined in. They haven't been missing for a decade like everyone else.

    I mostly can't get over Richie having an Australian accent and just how much ill advised surgery Atomic Kitten have had.

  • (psst.. it's called the big reunion..)

    I have no idea what any of you are on about.

  • I have no idea what any of you are on about.

    you should, I don't even live in a country where it is broadcast :D

  • I have no idea what any of you are on about.

    en.m.wikipedia.or…i/The_Big_Reunion

  • you should, I don't even live in a country where it is broadcast :D

    That kind of detail has never stopped you before

  • I think I need another clue unless there was a BSB TV show

    in big BSB news, Nick Carter is engaged. Now they're alllll old and taken.

  • en.m.wikipedia.or…i/The_Big_Reunion

    I think I can cope without that in my life

  • I'm kind of mad Blue have joined in. They haven't been missing for a decade like everyone else.

    Right, they did Eurovision and everything.

    Australian/Brummie is my new favourite accent mix.

  • I think I can cope without that in my life

    Your loss!

  • Australian/Brummie is my new favourite accent mix.

    it's so odd, he was way too old when he moved here to pick it up that much. I kind of want to go to Sydney and see it in person.

  • Hello from Hong Kong airport, just to be different.

  • Hello from Hong Kong airport, just to be different.

    I saw your tweets about long flights. How is Hon Kong?

  • Hello from Hong Kong airport, just to be different.

    Ooh, airport! Where are you going?

  • Ooh, airport! Where are you going?

    Home, thankfully.

    Two weeks in Mongolia & China.

    Steven, Hong Kong is fine but then I'm only here for a few hours.

  • Two weeks in Mongolia & China.

    Mongolia? I had no idea people even went to Mongolia

  • Mongolia? I had no idea people even went to Mongolia

    Apparently people do ;)

    It's for a mine site.

    About -32C...............

  • It's for a mine site.

    What are you mining for

    About -32C...............

    I experienced -30ºC-ish in the Ukraine 20odd years ago and I am not sure I have quite recovered yet

  • About -32C...............

    Holy cow

  • I experienced -30ºC-ish in the Ukraine 20odd years ago and I am not sure I have quite recovered yet

    I now know the feeling.

    My company is doing rfid tracking of bags of copper. Well we would if everything actually worked (and not due to the cold). Too much "yes, that's been done" when it hasn't.

  • Holy cow

    I think I've got to -17, but that was due to quite a bit of windchill.

  • Holy cow

    That doesn't include wind chill.

    The mine site was warmer, about -10--15 but windier.

    Not sure if it is the same in Mongolia but one thing I learned in a few eastern European countries is if you tell someone to do something and they say yes that does not mean yes they will do it. It means yes I understand what you want me to do. There were times when I was convinced a conversation meant one thing and the other person had a very different view of what the agreement had been

    There's was definitely some of that but also the need to please the boss now. The Chinese side was worse, though compared to the wooden beds (literally) and generally poor conditions plus I got food poisoning on top of the cold I just got...

  • There's was definitely some of that but also the need to please the boss now. The Chinese side was worse, though compared to the wooden beds (literally) and generally poor conditions plus I got food poisoning on top of the cold I just got...

    Sounds like a really tough trip. You must be looking forward to getting home if not to sitting on a plane for hours

  • There's was definitely some of that but also the need to please the boss now. The Chinese side was worse, though compared to the wooden beds (literally) and generally poor conditions plus I got food poisoning on top of the cold I just got...

    Quit! It's enough to want an office job for life.

  • Sounds like a really tough trip. You must be looking forward to getting home if not to sitting on a plane for hours

    The trick will be to stop coughing long enough to pass through immigration.

  • Quit! It's enough to want an office job for life.

    It's great experience and great to look back on even if it is no fun at all. Plus it means you stick out in job interviews against the people with identical backgrounds

  • Quit! It's enough to want an office job for life.

    I have one!

    Ok, see you all later. That's my flight being called now.

  • Ok, see you all later. That's my flight being called now.

    Have a good flight

  • Ok, see you all later. That's my flight being called now.

    If he doesn't die of cold!

  • I don't have a statue! FOR SHAME!!!

  • If he doesn't die of cold!

    That's minor. I worked for a French company and we were building two electronics plant in the Soviet Union. One was in Ukraine and the other in Azerbaijan and I was supposed to be doing all the chemical stuff for both even though I was based in Ukraine. My boss turned up one day and asked when I wanted to go to Azerbaijan. We had a discussion of the details then he dropped in that he would need to arrange for me to eat somewhere other than the hotel restaurant. I asked if it was no good and he said it used to be good but some troops had been there on leave from the fighting in Nagorno Karabakh. They had been playing something like pass the parcel with a hand grenade when one grabbed the grenade and another grabbed the pin.

    But it is perfectly safe he told me. Needless to say I refused to go anywhere near it

  • I don't have a statue! FOR SHAME!!!

    I am shocked. I hereby nominate you for an award for the Giggles advent calendar, Giggles Radio and anything else you care to add in

  • But it is perfectly safe he told me. Needless to say I refused to go anywhere near it

    Haha, that's amazing. Sounds like Darwin Awards candidates.

  • Haha, that's amazing. Sounds like Darwin Awards candidates.

    Never thought of that. I really turned down an award nomination. Damn :)

  • But it is perfectly safe he told me. Needless to say I refused to go anywhere near it

    Wow! I think that sounds like a reasonable refusal!

    My Russian cousin told me a joke the other day which given where you were working you might appreciate. A guy came from South Africa to St Petersberg for a year job placement. When he went home, his colleagues asked him how it was. He said, "I liked the green winter better than the white one".

  • Ikea has let us down. They don't have what we want. Have to go to plan B... Just as soon as we figure out what that is!

    I arrived in Ukraine in the August and it was +30-35ºC. I left the week before Xmas and it was -20-30ºC. The green winter was very hot

  • Ooo you're still here! Hello

  • Ikea has let us down. They don't have what we want. Have to go to plan B... Just as soon as we figure out what that is!

    Go with Lukeh's suggestion of Argos. You can even do it all on the web without going outside

  • Ooo you're still here! Hello

    Hello. After every hangout I see you tweet that you missed it and promise myself I will tweet you at the start of the next one. So far I have failed miserably

  • I turned everything off for an hour save I screamed at the world... see tweet at 13.59...

    You are just out of practise with SPC

  • Oh, I accidentally went all usenet on the quoting on that last comment. 0-0

    People always shouted at me on usenet when I quoted that way there

  • So have you ever found that your favourite song just isn't long enough?

    This takes any song and makes it go on forever and ever and ever and ever...

  • This takes any song and makes it go on forever and ever and ever and ever...

  • I think Martin Whitmarsh should get an award for the best April Fools joke ever when he told us that he was hiring Sergio Perez to replace Lewis Hamilton

  • People always shouted at me on usenet when I quoted that way there

    They were probably reading from AOL...

  • musicmachinery.co…infinite-jukebox/

    Love the pics. Very reminiscent of Christine's movie barcodes

    Talking of infinate songs... That was eternal september

  • Heh, it's pretty nifty

  • Heh, it's pretty nifty

    OK it just went from nifty to amazing on the song im trying

  • Right I have to go and feed some ducks...

    Quack you later

  • OK it just went from nifty to amazing on the song im trying

    My guess... is that this is something to do with Muse

  • Right I have to go and feed some ducks...

    Feed them oranges. Saves time later

    Useful tip

  • My guess... is that this is something to do with Muse

    Think you may be onto somethere there detective inspector giggles :)

  • *something

  • Here's a question for you all: has anyone got any other suggestions for tech-y topics that they'd like speculating about?

    I've got Modesty Panels, Coanda effect, Suspensions, Overtaking aids, and a few more things, but what do you think?...

  • I've got Modesty Panels, Coanda effect, Suspensions, Overtaking aids, and a few more things, but what do you think?...

    I am happy to speculate about just about anything.

    How about pullrod vs pushrod. Tyres compounds and from that number of pit stops

  • Different variations on the Fibre Optic kit...

    (LPG wonders if that chap still works there...)

  • I'm trying to get the motivation to go out when I just want to hibernate. I suppose I'd better go now or I won't be back for Daytona. See you.

  • How about pullrod vs pushrod. Tyres compounds and from that number of pit stops

    Pull/push rod is on the drawing board.

    I like the tyres idea, I'll have to see what data is out there :)

  • Not sure the data is easily available but it would be interesting to see how ambient temperature/humidity affects the result of a race

  • Not sure the data is easily available but it would be interesting to see how ambient temperature/humidity affects the result of a race

    Well the weather/outcome data is available is it not? Quite a lot could be inferred from that, historically if not for current season?

    It's gone chilly again, hibernation is very attractive right now.

  • The data is all out there but it may take a lot of effort to get it all in the one spreadsheet

    I might suggest that might be tricky... not sure the teams know themselves ;)

  • due to Giggles i have now been listening to Madness for 10 minutes and it's still going. It's driving me m-m-m-m-m-mad

    I wish that this was an option... *somebody* decided that he was well enough to go to work but not to take himself... and now he's posting pictures of a new 'crocs' shop in town onto twitter. (shudder)

    Which means that I shall be having to take myself out again in a couple of hours to fetch... this is not doing productivity any good what so ever.

    Mind you, I have the worlds warmest-yet-still-well Tinyboy asleep against my back so right now I am warm in an otherwise chilly house. (bliss)

  • I wish that this was an option... *somebody* decided that he was well enough to go to work but not to take himself... and now he's posting pictures of a new 'crocs' shop in town onto twitter. (shudder)

    I approve of the idea of using kids as hot water bottles

    What craziness has Giggles been instigating now?

  • Christine - what was the IKEA trip for? Is it anything that I could source in this one for you?

  • I'm going to go with this little kids called Derryn: doeverything.org.uk/

    Short story: cancer since he was 10 and recently diagnosed with a type of cancer so few people have had, there's no data to base a treatment programme or prognosis on, so they're just going to do a bone marrow transplant. He's 13 now.

    It harks back to earlier formats, and references so many different films (not just bond ones) and social & political bits and bobs....

  • Thanks for the chatting again today, peoples. More soon, no doubt :)

  • Ooh, five minute warning. Time flies!
