Graffiti | Buttercup of Doom ep 43

BODep43-graffitiAvailable FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In

From spray paint on buildings and brick to ink on flesh, graffiti is all around us, balancing between art and statement and vandalism. Whether you like it or not. Whether you approve or not. Whether society is ready or not… This week we look at graffiti in fiction, physical and metaphorical, in neighborhoods, and in spirit on the body. A short episode, because well, I get a holiday weekend too. Enjoy!

Oh, and for all the writer’s out there, put your “bloody shoe description” here.

Sex and shopping… it’s what the internet does best, but are you prepared for its worst? Covering tech in the 101, and appreciating the giggles the net does offer, we quickly move on into the scary side of the internet: predators, players, police and punks. From phishing to catfishing, from cyberbullies to cults — the dangers are out there, everywhere, and most of us ignore the baddest of the bunch. Welcome to the interwebs, where the citizen are out for your money, your blood, your children.

Heroes | Buttercup of Doom ep 33

BODep33-heroesAvailable FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In

Heroes in writing, on the internet, in the news, in hollywood. They’re everywhere. Or are they? Where have the heroes of past gone? Why are we left with losers rather than role models? I’ll tell you why… it’s our own fault!

Awards | Buttercup of Doom ep 26

BODep26-awardsAvailable FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In

This week we look at the silliness of award-season tantrums, the ridiculous behavior that comes with being nominated to be nominated to maybe be on the final ballot, and the irony of back stabbing instead of back patting when colleagues are honored. Yes, it’s award season… bring on the #OscarsSoWhite and the #AwardsSoPenis and, of course, as is apropos for a horror writer, the #stokers.

Research & Destroy | Buttercup of Doom ep 24

This Week’s Rating: (just a couple f-bombs) buttercup ratings system info here

I open this episode discussing, reading, and 101-ing some interesting tidbits regarding research, journalism, and the importance of understanding “the other side”. Then I lay into the anti-vaxxers, without remorse, and poke holes in their logic, their selfishness, and support our need to flick them all.
