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…

Hipsters | Buttercup of Doom ep 49

BODep49-hipsters

Available FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In
and now available on Google Play Music

I don’t remember who suggested this topic, but it was both a blessing and a curse. My brain hurt a lot this week, but it’s definitely a good topic! After “deconstructing” their definition, applying a lesson of sorts to writing, shaking our heads at their silliness, we learn more about them than they seem to know. From claiming fashion that predates them to pretending their trend isn’t a trend, these Fight Club wannabes wouldn’t stand a chance against a real lumberjack and need to accept themselves for what they are… the latest Borg.

Movies vs Books | Buttercup of Doom ep 45

BODep45-moviesVSbooksAvailable FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In
and now available on Google Play Music

Sometimes the movie is okay, even good, but it’s rarely (read as never) what the book was. This week is all about the differences between what was a envisioned with the written word in a book, and what was brought to us visually on the screen through adaptation of said books… and why Hollywood should be punched right in the throat. *Here there be spoilers
