It’s an Ironic Edition of ‘The Mix’

Here’s a novel theme for this week’s edition of the show that brings you the best moments from BlogTalkRadio’s unmatched mix of social-radio programming: Irony.

It was bound to happen, what with the sheer number of shows aired each week here on the world’s largest online radio network.

 CAPTION: "Any time they replace a word with a tamer word that's kind of like the idiom, but not really, I'm always offended," Lisa (above) tells us of her hindquarters controversy.

So we’ve rounded up a few for your listening pleasure.  You’ll learn, for instance:

-How Lisa Ann Walter, creator of the Oxygen reality series Dance Your Ass Off, proposed to soften up that title for advertisers’ trepidatious ears.

-Why actor Mark Duplass – who’s 100 percent hetero – says, “I never really thought I could connect with the thought of having sex with one of my best friends.”

-Which celebrity offspring – who’s planning to change genders – Talk It Over host Lee Jay Berman is referring to when he says, “When I went to pick her up, she was playing football with all the boys.”

-Which now-vilified financial watchdog once told CNBC Business News reporter David Faber, “What are you gonna do, pass a law to outlaw greed?”

-Why Thomas Mikal Ford, who played Tommy Strawn on Martin, was pained by his character’s mysterious source of income.

-Why Amber Benson, who had a regular role on the hit TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, recently spent the day selling merchandise in the parking lot of a San Diego theater.

So don’t miss The Mix, hosted by everyone’s favorite pod jockey, Shaun Daily, tonight – and every Monday – at 9 p.m. ET!

‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ Star Amber Benson: Parking-Lot Pitchwoman!

CAPTION: "A lot of people know me as an actor, but they don't know I do other things," Amber (above) tells us.

You know the economy’s bad when a castmember from the hit TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer is reduced to hawking tchotchkes outside a San Diego theater.

Or maybe she’s just deeply in love.

Either way, BlogTalkRadio trumped merchandising and amour in the end.

During her PSI-FI Para-Radio interview this past Sunday, Amber Benson, who played Tara Maclay opposite Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s Buffy Summers, was chatting about her latest screen project when she slipped in an eyebrow-raising tidbit.

Drones is a film that I co-directed with Adam Bush, who’s my boyfriend, who played Warren on Buffy – who kills me,” the actress told host Donna Stewart.

“How ironic. It’s pretty weird!” she continued.

Then came this segue:copy-of-deaths-daughter1

“I’m actually in the parking lot of an Indigo Girls concert as we speak, because [Adam’s] band, Common Rotation, is opening for them tonight – and I’m selling merchandise.

“I double-booked. I thought they asked me to do it on Saturday, but it was today,” added Amber, who’s also a writer – with a new book titled Death’s Daughter.

“So I was like, ‘Bye, guys! I can’t sell merchandise for the next hour. I’m going to do a radio show with these awesome ladies.”
