Blind Drunk Justice, Episode 1

Blind Drunk Justice Episode 1

Welcome to the next episode of Blind Drunk Justice, where BL1Y and The Namby Pamby discuss topics we’re really not at all qualified to have an opinion on. ┬áThis week we tackle the controversy over the opening of U. Mass School of Law, advice we wish we had been given when we started law school, and the fine art of over-billing your clients.

You can follow the show and get updates via Twitter.

The plagiarism story mentioned on the show can be found here, and you can find Brush With the Law on Amazon.

And didn’t we already have an episode 1? Well, it was a test show, so let’s call it episode 0.

    pfft… mining gold in WOW is for noobs; complete amateur hour. the real money is in mining mithril ores in runescape.

    Otherwise good show. And it is just idiotic about that law school. It is like California opening up the new UC–UC Merced.
    “Gee, lets open up another regional school in an already financially strapped state–great idea. But now, we really can’t fund it that well.”
    The idea is well intentioned I guess, but the implementation seems poor (as is the timing).

    Wow bl1y, thanks for trolling me so hard with that Scott Turow book. As soon as I get it you end up saying it’s terrible, and then namby recommends a better one that advocates drugs and apathy.

    I guess I know which blog I’ll be commenting on henceforth!

    Great show, the quotes from UMass were exquisite and your outro had just the right touch of newbie podcaster to elicit a chuckle.

    P.S. Your stance on cheating, while both badass and practical, is saddening. I have managed to avoid cheating entirely in college thus far and it blows that I might be forced to do so just because every other jerkoff has no ethics.

    Chris: Scott Turow’s 1L gives a very realistic look at what the 1L experience is like…it’s still a shitty book though.

    You guys should run a show on how NOT to objectivize women in law school. I am SOOOOOO sick of men treating me like a dumb sex object.

    I am going to be a member of the bar so why do men only want to have sex with me?

  5. shadow_hand Says:

    Debbie: Are you attractive? That might have something to do with it.

  6. Debbie Says:

    I am aware that I am very attractive, but I also have a JD. I do not like men thinking of me only for sexual purposes. I also have a mind and none of the men seem to care about what is between my ears.

    Every time there is a conversation, men just yes me to death and just want to sleep with me.

    I did not go to law school to provide sexual gratification to men. I do not think this is proper for men to treat me as a sexual object. I have a JD degree and just took the bar exam.

  7. shadow_hand Says:

    First off, jump off your high horse because having a JD isn’t all that impressive, nor does it mean you’re all of a sudden superior or more intelligent. Second, law is still primarily a boy’s club so get used to it. Yes, more and more women are becoming judges and that’s awesome, but men are still much more likely to become partners so the scales are still very skewed. I’m not saying it’s right but that’s the way it is. You have a tough road ahead of you should you decide to work at a big firm and I certainly don’t envy that. If you’re too soft, your male colleagues will treat you like a wounded animal and likely not give you any worthwhile tasks. On the other hand, if you’re too tough, you’ll be seen as a bitch by your male peers making it less likely for you to be accepted and promoted.

    Welcome to law!

  8. Debbie Says:

    Shadow, you may be right, but it is not nice to have to live with this double standard. If a man is tough, no one will fault him, but if a woman is nice, she is a pushover. Why men act like this toward women I will never know. With all of the other women breaking into responsible positions (witness Sotomoyaer and Kagan), maybe in a few years all women will be looked at as equals, as we should be. Right now, I will be working for my father, so I do not have to worry about him.

  9. bl1y Says:

    Shadow Hand: You are completely right. A JD means shit. Hell, they gave me one.

  10. Chris Says:

    Hey, just wanted to say I started listening to One L on audiobook and I’m really enjoying it so far. It’s exciting and frightening and culturally insightful, much better than the dry statistics I’ve been reading about Law School rankings and LSAT study tactics.

    Thanks for the heads up.

  11. Joe Says:

    A few things. Women at law school are mostly ugly. I think it is because pretty women have more choices. Even if a girl is so-so in law school she thinks she is an 8 or 9, when she is really a 6. The majority of the girls were in the 2, 3, 4, 5, range.

  12. superficial Says:

    B1LY you guys are funny. I only skipped around, oh, maybe twice, sooo yes, I approve of this. I’m no lawyer, law student nor am I intrigued by anything law, but I like reading what you write. One question of grave importance though: are you or Namby hot??

  13. bl1y Says:

    I’m pretty decent looking. I wouldn’t say I’m hot, but I’ve dated a model or two and they didn’t run away screaming.

  14. superficial Says:

    They didn’t run away screaming? Well that’s certainly a good sign.

    Looking forward to ep 2.

  15. thenambypamby Says:

    Growing up, my parents had to put a steak around my neck so the dog would play with me.

  16. bl1y Says:

    To be fair, the steak was so the dog wouldn’t be so turned off by your smell, not your ugliness.

    Not to say he isn’t also ugly; I’ve heard Namby described as “The male Lisa Lampenelli.” Though, that could also refer to his habit of getting gang banged by black men.

  17. superficial Says:

    This is an important discussion and should be included in the next BDJ ep.

    Even with the steak around your neck, the dog probably ignored you at times, huh, Namby? If I had to guess, I’d say that the neglect was probably what drove you to become a lawyer.

  18. Not a Lawyer Says:

    Debbie: Wow, every coversation you have, men just want to have sex with you? You’re either a porn star or a tad delusional. I fancy myself hot-ish and have never let this become a problem. It’s highly unlikely that every man that’s ever been blessed by your presence wants nothing but sex. Some men like to get know women, and hell, some even conduct themselves like professionals. It’s wacky out there in grown-up world.

    I find that my colleagues and clients are more likely to meet with me, respond to me, remember me, or whatever I want them to do – not just due to my expertise and business savvy, but my blond hair, big boobs, and nice smile as well.

    That said, I’d love to have your confidence. In your honor, I’ll spend the rest of the day imaging that every man I see is just dying to get in my dress, and reprimand him appropriately. I think I’ll do this at bars and parties too.
