Bald Move Dictionary

NathanNathan Winterfell, The North, Westeros
The other week on the AHS podcast, A.Ron pointed out that, because Bald Move has been around for a while, there are a lot BM jargon and catchphrases. I was thinking we could get a list or dictionary together, or just put down our favourites here. For example:

"mildly interesting" - a response made to hide whether your friend's theory on a show's plotline is correct or not when you have prior knowledge on it, making you not reveal any spoilers. USE WITH CAUTION, as it may cause you to sound obnoxious!
For reference, listen to Game Of Thrones Podcast.

"bottle episode" - where an episode takes place in only one place, using minimal effects and relying mainly on the talent of the actors present. 
For reference, listen to Breaking Good Podcast.

A "Russell Edgington" - refers to any character played by Denis O'Hare. The origin is from the charismatic vampire from True Blood, and derivations stem from this
For reference, listen to AHS and True Blood Authority Podcasts.

"Kirkman REMIX" - where The Walking Dead chooses to take great events and concepts from its comic counterpart and distribute them to different characters, often with a boxed execution.
For reference, listen to The Watching Dead Podcast

"Bullshit!" - pronounced "BALL-SHE-IT" - a former catchphrase of the crazy redneck Daryl in seasons 1-2 of The Walking Dead. Usually used to express anger at the show by the hosts.
For reference, listen to The Watching Dead Podcast

That's just a few, more would be great!

  • To piggy back on Daryl's "BALL-SHE-IT" I would put forth the "BOWL-SHIT" pronunciation. When something's bullshit factor reaches a height where a little extra emphasis is necessary to properly express it.

    I'm having trouble wording his entry properly for "dictionary speak" but I think "Tom in a Volkswagon" belongs in there somewhere.

    Dry Pie - Not one which gets used too often lately, but is used to refer to an email or other piece of feedback which references something which was extensively discussed on the podcast itself - a non-derogatory "we've been over this" acknowledgement of the listener's feedback without excess time spent on a topic.

    For reference, listen to any episodes of the Game Of Thrones cast starting with episode 402 "The Lion And The Rose

    I tend to spell it bowl-shit as well. Would it be cheating if I added a few?

    Bacon gauntlet - when a writer goes beyond ham fisted to make thematic point.

    X pit - where the X is a bachelor living in deplorable conditions. Started off referring to Pete Campbell, but I'm pretty sure Don and Roger ended up in some pits as well.

    Fiesta - when the community gets so excited by the prospect of a characters death they start planning a party around it. Lori from TWD's death was the original Fiesta cast, others have been suggested.

    Ah, there is also cold-rolled bowl-shit:  As in, "cold-rolled steel, more like cold-rolled bowl-shit" or "Morgan giving that Wolf a gun when he let them go is some hardcore cold-rolled bowl-shit".  For reference, refer to any jacked up thing in Alexandria.  :)

  • You've got "fishnado" and variations on the BB plane collision (I don't what the official dictionary term would be). I'll leave it to others to provide the definitions as I'm sure other peole can come up with better, smarter word play than me.

    I'd also include some "tinfoil" terms. One of my favorites being "Valyrian Foil" to talk about the highest of quality tinfoil theories for Game of Thrones.

    Ha, just this morning I realised I have started taking up @A_Ron_Hubbard 's habit of referring to actors by previous character names. I was talking to someone about the latest episode of Fargo and kept referring to "Todd" and "Ron Swanson".

  • I'm particularly fond of the various nicknames for Jesse Plemmons in Breaking Bad & Fargo. Meth Damon, Meat Damon, Fat Damon.

    I don't know if we have a word for this, but we should:

    That moment when @A_Ron_Hubbard goes off on a weird tangent and @Jim clearly wants to move on

    Hey - that's me.

    I'll add 'The Villigan' and 'The Villigang'

    @Jim's long pause then, "Hmm... maybe", when he clearly disagrees with some whacky fan theory but doesn't want to say so outright.

    Jim's polite dismissals of further discussion are golden. Really an art form at this point.

    You know what's so funny? I rely on that! When @A_Ron_Hubbard stopped taking the lead on AHS podcast I had no idea who tha f anyone was. Who's this Elizabeth? Donovan, etc. I need GaGa, Russel Edgerton and whatever other character names we already know these people by.

    Judeo-Christian- popularized as a way to describe the common beliefs between Christianity & Judaism. A.Ron will often describe any situation that has anything to do with Christianity as "Judeo-Christian"

    Use in a Sentence: "Well I don't know, I guess when you think of this in a sort of Judeo-Christian mindset...."



    I've noticed that Aron says this A LOT.



  • @broomperson I don't get it? That's what Judeo-Christian actually means. Why is that specific to Bald Move?
  • DeeDee Adelaide
    @ksa1001 I was listening to an AHS cast a couple of weeks ago and Cecily mentioned Elizabeth, and I'm like "What? Who's Elizabeth? Did she make a mistake there?"

    Hell yeah, Tom. I remember the first time I saw tom_g, WV on this board I said to myself "I bet that's Tom in a Volkswagon." Ha! Probably my favorite e-mailer/caller handle across the radio or podcasts that I listen to. It just sticks really nicely. Nice bit of dyslexic serendipity.

    Didn't the "Cold Rolled Steel" start with season 4 of Game of Thrones at the wall.  Janos Slyant or what's his name said the gates were made of Cold Rolled Steel so the Wildings couldn't get though, but Jon said they couldn't stop giants!  Probably wasn't used in the same context as the definition, though.

    Indeed, his first usage of "Valyrian Foil" almost killed me from laughing.

    I believe it's from Fargo Season 1 when the Supermarket King's son is driving and it suddenly starts raining fish (apparently it's possible)..

    *Is it?* said with elongation of the i vowels = I need to see reciepts to verify your statement. Please provide proof.

    Origin: Cecily on the True Blood podcast, now spread throughout the Bald Move empire via A. Ron.
