The C Word – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans
Boyfriend is the creator of a whole new entertainment genre she calls Rap Cabaret. If she’d taken her stripper style show to Finland and not Austin and Bumf#$%k Mississippi she might not have gotten banned from performing because of the lewd nature of her show, nor called the C-word.
On this podcast we get to hear the C-word a lot. But because of strict rules about writing naughty words that show up on iTunes and get you kicked off (it’s already happened to us) we can’t go into that too much here on the page. However if you’re interested in various uses of the word in a multi-national comparison, check out this conversation which owes its genesis to Boyfriend’s current antics and Faimon Roberts’ past.
Faimon spent some time in Finland where their use of the C-word is more common than ours. Faimon, who spent his Baton Rouge childhood being called “Flamin'” also spent time in the UK where he quit prestigious Oxford University in a hot-headed moment and ended up in the only profession disappearing faster than his Ph.D topic, the study of ancient Iraq: journalism. Today Faimon is a reporter for The Advocate.
Mandy Lloyd grew up playing the trumpet and today has graduated to working with the most famous trumpet of them all: Louis Armstrong’s. As a part of Mandy’s gig in management at The Hard Rock Cafe on Bourbon Street, she gets to watch over Satchmo’s horn and carry pepper spray at all times to threaten unruly customers.
Andrew Duhon, inspired less by all the talk of various applications of the C-word in the UK and more by the higher ideals of universal travel and the celebration of hair-curlers, sings an unrecorded song about the small towns that surround London.
