I said, Ask Me Anything… they did. And I answered. From questions on raising a family to my opinions on extreme horror, from why podcasting to what I really think of The Horror Show with Brian Keene, from blood on the page to vices to con stories… and even the never spoken of political views of a wayward Buttercup. They asked. I answered. You get to listen to it! And remember, this is the edited version. The uncut, unedited, full-disclosure version is available only to my patreons.

Grief Police | Buttercup of Doom ep 25

This Week’s Rating: PG13 buttercup ratings system info here

A funny thing happened on the way to David Bowie’s funeral… the internet turned into a bunch of stupid! Let’s talk about it. Celebrity deaths: should you mourn, can you mourn an intangible connection, how you mourn. Death in general, from the coffin floppers to characters to the black humor we lean on to survive.

Superstitions | Buttercup of Doom ep 13

13bod-superstitions300Available FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In

Because this is the 13th episode, I thought it would be appropriate to discuss Superstitions, and because I promised last week, Urban Legends. From Bloody Mary to the Hook Hand, from black cats to pop rocks, from the truth to internet hoaxes, we cover campfire frights and facebook fallacies… I ask a couple questions (join conversation/answer here), I offer up some readings and links, and I request something of YOU this time. I hope you had a great Halloween, now come enjoy your sugar hangover with the Buttercup of Doom!

Mini-Interviews from Horrible Saturday

Horrible Saturday is a lovely event held at the York Emporium. It brings together local horror authors, artists, actors, and whoever else they can find. We do interviews, panels, movie showings, and this particular year, we talk to this guy.

Tom Joyce, from the Chamber of the Bizarre, did little mini video interviews with several us, including Mary SanGiovanni, Bob Ford, Jack Nemo, Chet Williamson, and me. Check out the video here… and maybe come see us at the next Horrible Saturday!
