College can be a tough part of anyone’s life – you’ve just moved away from your friends and family, everyone seems obsessed with drinking and partying, and your roommate can’t seem to stop talking about the new World of Warcraft Cataclysm expansion.
But not all is lost! The Big Hot Sho is proud to present our first episode of Oxford Late Night, the podcast for people who like to party in Oxford. Each week we’ll be your guide to what’s going on around town as well as what separates a Savant of the Square from that girl with a solo cup stuck in her heel.
This week, classes start as students move back into Oxford, which can only mean three things:
Traffic sucks. Somehow worse than before.
You’re again reminded that you haven’t graduated.
Tons of new students feel lonely and dead inside.
But we’ve got one of those covered! Oxford Late Night is talking all this week about how to make new friends and integrate into Oxford society. So basically, go buy a polo shirt or a new pair of heels and start making caddy racist comments.
Imagine a life in which you write books that mock traditional southern values, receive massive critical acclaim and commercial success, and drink scotch all day. Basically, William Faulkner is Blake’s idol, and quite possibly the smartest men who ever lived.
So who better to ask life’s toughest questions? Using internet backslash technology, Josh and Blake call up Faulkner to talk about mascots, college degrees, and drink specials.
Last week, an unknowing longtime contributor to the Big Hot Sho passed away. Ted Stevens was many things to many people, a senator, an Alaskan patriot, and to some, a shady embezzler. But here at BHS, we’ll always remember Ted Stevens for his greatest contribution, the revolution of the internet.
During a daring speech in the summer of 2006, Stevens discovered that the internet was not just a big truck, but in fact a series of tubes.
In addition, I threw in some internet favorites like Punch Out, as well as some classic mashups I completely forgot to post many moons ago. Here’s the complete track list:
“The Internet” – Ted Stevens
“Whole Lotta Rosie” – AC/DC
“Right There, Ride on” – Hideki Naganuma
“Blinded by the Light” – Manfred Mann’s Earth Band
“Fight Theme” – Mike Tyson’s Punch Out
