Signing Off | Buttercup of Doom 2.11



The end of a (short) era. The finale of the Buttercup of Doom podcast was taped live at Scares That Care charity weekend 5 because a bunch of lovely humans donated funds during the Horror Show with Brian Keene telethon and decreed it to be. And so it was.

We performed without a net—no notes, no plan—winging it with whomever showed up. It was a free-for-all Q&A, which included the famous “f*ck, marry, kill” question, pizza toppings, group sing-alongs, many other topics, insanity, giggles, and a reminder of rule number one: Don’t Be A Dick (oh, that should be my campaign slogan: Buttercup 2020)

Many many thanks to those who donated to make it happen, to those who attended the taping, and to those who have listened over the years. Not sure what kept your attention, but I’m humbled to have had it. Thank you, and good-night…

Buttercup Out | Buttercup of Doom 2.10



This week I go over every remaining idea, note, thought, rant bubble and peeve that I have jotted down over the years to become something it never will… an episode. Then we have some Q&A from the peanut gallery, the final gypsy wisdom, and the information for the last episode ever—to be taped live at Scares That Care weekend convention in August (3.15pm Sunday, 8/5, in the podcast room… prepare your final thoughts and meet me there!) I completely lose my mind a couple times and the swearing is enough that this should be on headphones or with that office door closed (NSFW).

Sponsors: all of you wonderful people who listened, paid for advertising, or otherwise kept this going.

Q&A 2017 | Buttercup of Doom 2.9



This week I answer questions from the peanut gallery in a year-end Q&A. From opinions on Flat Earth people to pot brownies to tattoos and dinosaurs, pretty much no topic is left unsullied… including the birth of #thepainofthegraze hashtag

SJW | Buttercup of Doom 2.7



This week I talk about SJWs, aka Social Justice… Witch hunts. Not Warriors. Witch hunts. Because definitions get fuzzy, fingers get all pointy, and evidence and procedure are tossed out the window in the name of social media hysteria. Welcome to the American Witch Hunts of 2017, where sexual harassment, racism and prejudicial behavior are all lit up like torches for the masses to carry with their pitchforks.
