Shangri-La, you should try your hand at coquito! I've not made it, but a colleague of mine who happens to be a native Puerto Rican made a batch for me pre-Covid and it was delicious! Very festive drink.

I think I'll do it, Pauly! I'll let you know how it goes. :)

Regifting actually happens? Thought it was just a TV sitcom thing
Avatar 🍒 Swag For Life Member 6:59pm

Yikes! As I try and decide what my upcoming "White Elephant" gift might be, the thought that I've done this all already is certainly on my mind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm
WR:

Was hearing La Lupe doing Fever and thinking it sounded very different than another version La Lupe did, which happened to be played on DJ Rubberband Girl's show on Monday, and then looking here, I see this version is titled Fever Boogaloo, emphasizing the Latin (re-)arrangement of the tune.
Avatar 🍒 Swag For Life Member 7:01pm
austinrich:

I missed Dengue Fever? Damn. Need to tune in sooner.
Avatar 7:02pm
shangri-lounge:

Oh, it wasn't a re-gift. They just keep a theme going, and seem to buy cereal bowls for all their Secret Santa recipients.
Avatar 7:03pm
shangri-lounge:

Yep, this is the souped up version, WR! Funny that Rubberband Girl just played the other version this week. Whelp!
Avatar 7:03pm

Oh no, I've never had to participate in White Elephant. But, the thought of it gives me anxiety!

My wife's old boss gave everyone a pen that looked like a fish. She was rather annoyed by the fish-pen, as we dubbed it.

Oh that's kinda lame, so you know what you're getting. At least cereal is awesome!

These covers are SO good
Avatar 7:05pm
Mr Fab:

Ha, now that would have been cool!

I don't know about your firm, Shangri-La, but the firms I've worked for always have to have their logo on their gifts.
Avatar 7:06pm
shangri-lounge:

Nah, we're pretty small and non-corporate.
Avatar 7:06pm
shangri-lounge:

I like to tell people we're a "cool" firm.
Avatar 🍒 Swag For Life Member 7:07pm
austinrich:

I'm leaning toward "Rob Halford Biography" as the White Elephant gift. Doesn't have to be a bad gift, right?
Avatar 7:08pm
Mr Fab:

hey Austin, I gave a novel by William Shatner once.
Avatar 🍒 Swag For Life Member 7:08pm
austinrich:

One of those "TekWorld" books?

Ooo, I'm glad you like the covers, HyperD. I have a few more coming up.

shangri-lounge:

William Shatner writes fiction?!
Avatar 7:11pm
Mr Fab:

Well, he has a co-author. I'm assuming Bill probably doesn't do the heavy-lifting, but who knows?
Avatar 🍒 Swag For Life Member 7:11pm
austinrich:

I don't mind them, but I was never a fan, per se. The book might be great for all I know, but I have a pile of other things I'm trying to get through, and I just don't see myself picking it up in a timely manner.
Avatar 7:12pm
shangri-lounge:

Hahaaa, amazing.
Avatar 🍒 Swag For Life Member 7:13pm
austinrich:

Shatner has his name on 11 novels, but like Mr. Fab suggests, it's often got a co-writer, and The Shat has "story credit."

I got to Interview Martin earlier this year. He's a delight! (And very, very friendly.)

He also has a connection to Max Headroom: he was roommates with Steve Roberts, who wrote Max Headroom. (Martin was in the other room, writing Cleaners From Venus songs.)

I bet Bruce Campbell's book rules, but Bruce is hilarious in person. I can imagine he has a good way of translating that to the page.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm
Krys O.:

That's terrific, Austin! I used to correspond with Martin by mail in the 80s. A mutual friend let him know that I played Cleaners from Venus on my show back then and he wrote to thank me. We kept it up for a while. I was also pen pals with Kevin Lycett of the Mekons.

I'm imagining Jay Leno vs Bruce Campbell in a Battle of the Chins.

That's pretty dope, @Krys O. Martin is pretty active on social media.

My podcast co-host went to his village, and just found him at the local pub one day. They've been friends to this day.

@Mr Fab Taco as the musical guest? Sounds like the right atmosphere for depression-era showtunes in the 80's style.

"The Chins" is one of those shows that will do well at first, because Patrick Warburton will be a guest and whatnot. But after a while, it'll be hard for them to take all that abuse on the etc...
