Episode #8 – Boys Online


 

The topic of “online relationships” yet again becomes the main theme of the latest Spin the Bottle episode. WankerGirl and Miss Something attempt to dissect the fun and frustrations of diving into the murky waters of “online like” and “online lust”. Both tell their tales of their latest online interactions and how sometimes it leaves you feeling blue and other times it leaves you feeling wonderfully confused. Enjoy.

 



Episode #7 – The Spontaneous Experiment


 

This week we conduct an online experiment by recording our show and posting videos to Seesmic all at the same time. We manage to entice some of our Seesmic friends to join the podcast by posting questions and comments for us to answer.  I'd love to share the link, but Seesmic changed all their urls and it's lost in the interwebs.  In the midst of this online interaction we discuss the possibilities of more NYC visits, marriage for immigration purposes, long-distance relationships, that time of the month and the beginnings and endings involved with dating.

 



Episode #6 – Encountering Birthdays


 

The calendar turns to Dana’s Birthday and the festivities have begun! But before we celebrate, we look back on vacations, new found confidence, rational dating, goodbyes and being born stoned. As well, we play with our new toy Seesmic. Have a look at our videos below.

 



Episode #5 – Podcamp NYC 2.0


 

Dana and Nicole attempt to recap 10 days in utter delirium.

Episode #4 – Three Dates/One Week


 

In an unexpected turn of events we both have a date in the same week. Shocking! Listen in to find out what happens when a date goes good and when a date goes bad.

Episode #3 – Drinking From the Bottle


 

We capture ten wine-filled days in Brooklyn for your listening enjoyment. We warn you that some parts are naughty, some parts are silly, but most parts are ridiculous and a little bit incoherent. Our mom’s would be proud. Enjoy.

Episode #2 – Waiting by the phone


 



Something Found #9


Brett and I talk…
about babies, Gilroy garlic fries, San Francisco, marbles, boobs, Prince, email prowess, 9/11, living abroad, sports, private part “contests”, naked taboo, Brett’s wedding, martial arts, etc, etc…

Audio issues, apparently my mic only does well with whoever is close to it.

Episode #1 – Girls (S)talk


 

We finally tell the stories that we have been keeping secret. In particular we let you in on how we stalk, date and seduce boys online. Learn how you can stalk your current crush with a simple google or myspace search. As well, hear our stories of online dating, online flirting and online sex.

Episode #0 – Primer


 

The goal of our first recording was to create a starting point of sorts, so that if someone found us a long time from now, they could listen to this and skip to the current place in time. We introduce one another, tell the story of how we met (complete with our first emails to one another), the genesis of “Spin the Bottle” and generally chew your ear off.

 

 

The first emails:

 

From: Nicole
To: Dana
Date: Oct 8, 2006 10:30 PM

I was directed to your podcast for the sad news about your relationship (i have sort of a wallowcast all about my break up and the fall out and so i guess now i’m associated with that…oh joy)…wow…WOW! i started at show 1 and i was first struck by your great voice, great recording set up, your joy, your location – honestly new foundland is my next vacation. i decided this a few weeks ago and i’ve been over the moon about it even if it does take a few years to be able to realize it. so of course when i heard that’s where you are, i was immediatly hooked, for my own intel on how to plan my trip. anyway, i just wanted to reach out and tell you that your last show stunned me. having been through an awful break up the past few months, i could relate to so much of what you said and you did it beautifully, and so intimiately i give you much props. of course i’d never wish this on anyone, even if not to feel a litle less alone in the whole mess. but, i’m babbling…this little window is throwing me off. it will get better, your attitude is amazing and you will find something even more perfect for you…though i know myself that when you’re going through it you don’t want to hear any of it. i guess i don’t have much to offer, mostly because i’d feel like a hypocrite. i guess the whole point of this message is to thank you for sharing and to let you know there are many of us out there.

i mentioned your show on my last one. if you have a promo, i’d love to play it. best and take care of yourself!

To: Nicole
From: Dana

Hey Nicole

 

I just listened to your last two shows and Ioved them. And thanks for mentioning me :)

 

I am thinking that both you and I are sort of in similar places in our lives at the moment. Well, I only have 2 weeks of distance from the breakup so far and basically I think the whole thing sucks! I mean, I know this is the right thing to do but there is just so much up in the air for me. Where will I live? What will I do on Friday nights? How do I get a date? Do I need to shave my legs more ?

 

See, I am just babbling now :)

 

So I am unsure if i can ask you completely personal questions, but I guess I will be obnoxious and give it a go anyway. Why did you and your ex-boyfriend break up? You had moved so far to be with him and then BAM!!! I mean, that must of been such a shock for you.

 

So..you should totally visit Newfoundland. I can tell you anything that you will need to know to make it a great visit. I am sure it will be the complete opposite of NY and NJ. Although I have to admit that for one of my next vacations I have to visit NY. I have been so desperate to go there for so long and I think maybe next year or so I will go there. All I have to do is find someone to go with me. Ugh – that is soo depressing. I am just getting adjusted to doing all of this stuff by myself.

 

Ok – I am babbling more now so I will shut up :)

 

Hope to hear from you again
Dana (aka, WankerGirl)

Something Found #5


Dana was here! And she got me a present every day of her trip for my birthday, much like Chanukah! It was fabulous, but you get to hear one of the most upsetting nights…well, not really – just goes to show you how great it is when we get to hang out. We talk a little about what we’ve been up to and totally freak out (kisses to your eardrums). Big thanks to the podosphere for my favorite person in the world – my friend Wankergirl.



Something Found #4


Something Found – this week a listener wrote an impressively love email where questions and comments were itemized for each show I’ve posted. Because I’m lazy and because it inspired some topics for babble – here’s my response.

It was raining out and I’m once again sick, now drink up the airborne and enjoy.



Something Found #3


…forgive me, I fell down a well – that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Love(s)
Free mass transit fare, Pump Energy Kitchen, losing weight, my short hair, being incognito, Fall, time outside with friends (and booze), giggling, Dana / Blarm / Wankergirl, chapstick, being a squatter, beer, THE BEACH, family reunions, swimming in the ocean, chronicling, celebration, “Monopoly" money, MTV’s Fat Camp, being too cool for “that”, Hercules, taking time off when I need it, pleasing myself…

Hate(s)
Being sour grapes, taxi strike in NY, smelly boy dirty laundry smell, Boratisms, laundry laziness, bad days at work, feeling burned out, gaining weight, bad photos, migraines, when friends are hurt, being without chapstick, not rinsing after exfoliating, new “Monopoly”, cell phones at summer camp, when take-out goes bad, doing it “wrong”…

Want(s)
To have people do my laundry for me, a haircut, to be uninhibited, a new chapstick, “Monopoly” not to progress, to not be the old person, to fight authority at slumber camp, brown rice with tonight’s dinner, to figure it all out, to do it “right”, feedback on what you Love!…

A few minutes of my long walk in the sand and surf.
