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

A short and sweet episode for the 4th of July. Because, hey, I wanted to celebrate too. So a quick talk to cover: seasons in writing, summer vacation entertainment, and what to do with those children (who find themselves out of school with the whole world to explore and yet say they are “bored”). I have a kiddie pool, a hammock and a half-hour to spare. How about you?  (note: random clicks in background is firework noise and couldn’t be fixed. sorry)

Opinions | Buttercup of Doom ep 42

One for me, one for you, hell, let’s live big… opinions for everyone!! From how to deal with reviews to how to ignore the inbred, er, I mean, the uninformed stances which usually comes with a bullhorn. Editorials, politics, comedians, hell, even faith is nothing but opinion. So first we differentiate between fact, assumption and opinion, and then cover the types (tropes) of opinion, and then… Oh there’s just so much chewy goodness. And even a little commentary — because that’s yet another type of option, so I give you a link to “Don’t read the comments” by Just Between Us girls Allison Raskin and Gaby Dunn.
