Belinker and Proud
The pomegranate is only funny if you've read the book or listened to the podcast; so, get on it.
I'm pretty obsessed with a podcast called My Dad Wrote a Porno. It is gold. The premise is, three friends, one of whom's father writes erotic fiction, get together to read and discuss a chapter a week. Book one is called, no joke, Belinda Blinked 1; a modern story of sex, erotica and passion. How the sexiest sales girl in the business earns her huge bonus by being the best at removing her high heels. Seriously. That's the title. The semi-colon rather than a regular colon is on purpose, I guess. I don't even pretend to understand Rocky Flintstone's thought process.
Belinda Blinked tells the story of Belinda Blumenthal's rise to the top of the pots and pans industry. It has a little bit of everything; pomegranates, kind of important character's changing names mid chapter, mazes, important business meetings, Titanic references, and, of course, sex. But THE most ridiculous sex imaginable. Rocky clearly has no idea how bodies work and he can't be bothered with using Google.
The story of Belinda continues in book two, Belinda Blinked 2; the continuing story of, dripping sex, passion and bid business deals.: Keep following the sexiest sales girl in business as she earns her huge bonus by removing her silk blouse. In BB2, Belinda does a lot of international traveling. And it's hilarious. Rocky really branches out and enters the Sci-Fi realm at some point. It really is a work of art.
While the book and podcast can be enjoyed separately, I like to read along with the podcast. It's the only way to get the full experience.
Season/book three will be available May 29th. In fact, I just ordered my copy. I cannot wait.
Spend the weekend listening. You won't regret it.
