Episode 44 - Mind Trip


Space. There's a lot of it out there. Time. There's a lot of that too. When space and time collide in a tentative thematic episode, you get two movies set in the future, and one of them is in SPACE. This week Corey and Maddy discuss 'Mindwarp' and 'Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone'. No, not THAT Forbidden Zone.

Book of the Week: Goosebumps 25th Anniversary Collection by R. L. Stine


Goosebumps is close to my heart. Funny how you can read a book that you love so much, even reading another copy with a different cover just doesn't seem like an option. Don't get me wrong, the redesigns are cute, and it sort of revives the series in a way for a younger generation. Yet I love the old art here. It's very 90s, and very much a slice of my childhood.

I've always love reading, but when I was 6, learning to actively put a sentence together was hard. I'll save you the whole story of how it suddenly 'clicked' one day, and I could read just about anything. Suffice it to say, the first year I could go to that Scholastics book fair with money in hand and the knowledge that I could read whatever I bought without any help was magical. So I got a VHS of The Haunted Mask (which I still have), and a goosebumps book with a pumpkin book light. I'm not going to lie, the book light was what sold it. I think I bought Welcome to Dead House. It was '97, and Goosebumps was the series that all the kids were reading. The show had just launched, too, and I remember rushing home every day to watch it. There's not usually a huge scare in the Goosebumps books. Most of them have ambiguously an happy ending (yes, the day is saved...but you're a monster, or that sponge is going to wreak havoc when it gets wet again, or your dad might be one of the hundreds of plants in the front yard.) The next dark step up from Goosebumps was Ghosts of Fear Street, and then Fear Street when you were really ready for something 'darker and more mature'. Something for the teenagers.

My point is that I got this collection as a gift, it's amazing, and I'm pretty sure it could all be easily read in the course of a day by anyone of any age, and still feel just as magical as it did to me that day at the book fair when I bought my first Goosebumps.

Drive-in Trailers: Under The Sea

I think we can all agree that the world is a dangerous place, and anyone who steps foot out of their home for anything other than absolute necessities (food, water, bullets, Dolly Parton's latest album) is a fool. That being said, let us make our way back to the topic at hand: oceanic horror. The spooky, the dark, and the non-shark related horror waiting in your swimming pool, bathtub, and not-so-friendly local beach.

San Antonio Comic Con 2018

Went to the San Antonio Comic Con this weekend. Found some great comics (which I couldn't afford), some incredible art (bought a fantastic 'Child's Play' keychain moulded to look like a VHS tape, as well as a fun little art print inspired by 'Popcorn'). Unbelievably crowded, but fun nonetheless. This time around my friend Daniel is getting Robert Englund's signature inked (as you can see in one of the photos below).
