It isn’t easy house-training a house-pet; especially when you know they’re smarter than you. In this episode we tackle the challenges of caring for monkeys and dogs, whilst simultaneously dodging evil government projects and Michael Ironsides. With a quick chat about November’s ‘Horror Pack’, we also explore the enigma of ‘Monkey Shines’ and ‘Watchers’.

A cup of coffee, a pack of stale cigarettes, and a run-down diner. That’s all you need when you’re hanging out with Corey and Maddy tonight as they discuss some of Jim Jaramusch’s latest classics, including ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ and ‘The Dead Don’t Die’. Maybe when it’s all over Tom Waits will finally know the answer to the question–what’s he building in there?

Kids. Can’t live with them. Can’t–I don’t know, perform some weird satanic ritual without getting an HOA complaint these days. Thank god for babysitters, right? The good. The bad. It doesn’t really matter as long as you have one this Saturday night. Join Maddy and Corey this week as we discuss the creepy tension and loving 80s send-up of ‘The House of the Devil’, and a somehow more light-hearted murderous adventure in ‘The Babysitter’.

They say that breaking up is hard to do. Who says it? I don’t know, people in the 60s, Neil Sadaka, The Carpenters. The point is, this episode is all about the inevitable heartbreak and murder that happens every time a relationship ends. We discuss the pitfalls of allowing Glenn Close to be sexy in ‘Fatal Attraction’ and the unfortunate love of a girl and some hands in ‘May’.

Book of the Week: Strangely Enough by C. B. Colby / Happy Halloween

Posted in Books, Media with tags , , , , , , , on October 31, 2019 by ranranami

strangely

First of all, happy Halloween! Second, the book of the week is once more brought to you by nostalgia. One of my fondest memories as a kid was going to places like Goodwill or huge library book sales where you could pay 5-10 bucks for a large brown bag to fill with books to your heart’s content. This was one of many finds I had that was decommissioned after a long and honorable service (1959 actually). With most of the stories being fairly easy to read, generally no more than 2-3 pages, it’s such a great book to burn through and read to kids. Not to mention, it’s not so morbid or dark that you’d have to deal with too many nightmares afterwards.
