Opinions | Buttercup of Doom ep 42

BODep42-opinionsAvailable FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In

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.

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.

TMI | Buttercup of Doom ep 40

For this week’s rant I cover everything from “Angry Sherry” to schmoosy-wooshy, as I discuss all those the things people discuss loudly in public (usually on their cellphone) that make the rest of us a little bit crazier. In the kiddie pool, I discuss your privacy as a writer, and then I bring you happy twitter accounts to make your day a little brighter.

Nerf the World | Buttercup of Doom ep 32

BODep32-nerftheworldAvailable FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In

Knee pads, elbow pads, brain pads… there’s no adventure left in childhood. No stitches. No scars. No proof of survival. No stories to tell… We’ve bubblewrapped an entire generation, mentally and physically, accepted trigger words, created safe places, and Nerfed the World*

This week, I talk about bleeding on the page vs exorcising demons for public consumption, the disappearance of adventures and scars from childhood, and how much blood is really necessary for a bandaid. Join me, and find out WTF all those hashtags are for…

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.

This Week’s Rating: NSFW (R) — buttercup ratings system info here

In the last episode, I defined & dissected social media, and then the attacks in Paris happened and social media exploded with the good, the bad, and the ugly… and warranted another round. This time, with friends. Kevin Strange and Dave Thomas swing the ugly stick at online behavior of both mortals and journalists, with a submitted rant from Gef Fox, as we look at herd mentality, blatant lies, guided conspiracies, and more. (Note: this week was recorded using Skype, so yes, it’s a different sound quality than normal but worth it!)
