TOTP - Top Ten Movie Quotes

We were in a rush, so we unlocked the Top of the Pods vault and grabbed our pilot episode - "The Top Ten Movie Quotes" to fill some space. We chose never to release it because the format of the show took about 6 hours to edit and quite frankly it made us cringe. But we did promise to play it once our number of subscribers reached over 500 - any suggestions for what you'd like Jon and Rob to do/wear/kiss in return for 1000 subscribers should go to topofthepods@gmail.com:

  • 10 – Of all of the gin joints
  • 9 – You're not my father!
  • 8 – The first rule of Fight Club
  • 7 – These are not the droids you're looking for
  • 6 – The names Bond
  • 5 – Are you talking to me?
  • 4 – Quite frankly I don't give a damn
  • 3 - I'll be back
  • 2 – Do I make you laugh?
  • 1 – Wax on, wax off

We'll also read out all the names of everyone who emails us with the correct list of films that these ten film quotes come from on tomorrow's show (answers must reach us by 7pm GMT Wednesday the 10th of August!). Back to normal on tomorrow's show.

Hiya lads,

I sat through that whole thing hoping it would eventually get better...
I hoped in vain, it seems. :D

Your email address at gmail is dead or overflowed as of tuesday midnight (your time).

Cheers,

Boy, we sucked big time tonight, why do you think we never launched our pilot episode? You are all entitled to your money back.

We should have a bit more time on Wednesday to do a show, its so hard fitting in real life stuff alongside podcasting but we all have to pay the bills and make time for family and friends!

Well you certainly have come a long way from there...haha...you've given me inspiration to try my own podcast...I mean it couldn't be worse than that...kidding...the "star" voices were hysterical...great fun, glad we got to hear it.

I think jon and rob should kiss each other when you reach 1000 subscribers. photographic evidence required.

You can kiss that idea goodbye.

Maybe after 1,000,00 subscribers and I'll think about kissing Rob. He's not my type though, so don't hold your breath.

Wow. That would have been one short podcast.
Glad you opted for the longer format.
Cool to hear your first attempt.
And glad you embelished it with some commentary. Fun stuff.
Despite what you say, this was a good podcast (with the embelishment). Thanks!

I'll be holding my breath if you go anywhere near me, even if 1,000,000 people subscribe.

By the way, do those high numbers in feedburner and itunes sound a little fishy?

I can understand 5000 listeners to a show, but 40000?

http://www.podfeed.net/feedburner_rankings.asp and the iTunes Top subscribed. Daves iPaq Podcast? Are iPaqs suddenly really popular? Is there a feedburner and iTunes loophole?

I've an idea to fit in podcasting with your daily lives! Do more than one sometimes, maybe at the weekend you could record 3 or 4 in a row and release them throughout the week.

Why can't I post comments to the Top 10 Reasons To Visit The UK? Maybe because I don't know how Blogger works? Could be.

Anyway, yeah; there are people over here who love British TV. It's just more TV to me; some good, some bad. I tried watching "The Darling Buds" the other day (via Netflix) because it starred Catherine Zeta Jones. I think Rob mentioned he had a crush on her? Me too. Unfortunately, I didn't like the show much. Oh well.

It's "jeans" and the pocket is for your pocket watch, isn't it? Or it's for change. I'm guessing.

Here's what those pockets are for:
