Q&A 2017 | Buttercup of Doom 2.09

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

P.E.N. Anthology Cover Reveal

I was going to put the cover to the upcoming anthology My Favorite Story at the end of the post. Tease you about it for awhile. But it’s too exciting and good a cover to do that, so… enjoy. 

More details are coming soon. Really soon. This will be an amazing anthology of stories from some of the Project Entertainment Network authors we are honored to have as hosts of some of the best podcasts you will ever hear. 

Special thanks to Thomas O’Briant for the cover design and the authors who’ve given not only their favorite story but the why behind it being their favorite.

SJW | Buttercup of Doom 2.7

This week I talk about SJWs, aka Social Justice… Witch hunts. Not Warriors. Witch hunts. Because definitions get fuzzy, fingers get all pointy, and evidence and procedure are tossed out the window in the name of social media hysteria. Welcome to the American Witch Hunts of 2017, where sexual harassment, racism and prejudicial behavior are all lit up like torches for the masses to carry with their pitchforks.

This week I don’t just get angry at the system for dumbing down America, I spew about the sheep allowing it. From the blatant watering down of education to the mental tapeworm of media and entertainment… NSFW: language.

Adulting | Buttercup of Doom 2.3

This week I can’t even… which means as I spew about the term, as well as the problem, known as Adulting, my blood pressure means this one is completely NSFW: language.

*to boil an egg: put water in pot. turn on heat (burner/flame/etc). once it is boiling, gently add eggs. set timer for 13 minutes**. go scrub your f**king toilet. take off heat. tip pan into sink and pour hot water out (not the eggs. use a lid or something to hold them there). add really cold water. drain again. cold water. drain. add cold water and let sit on stove/counter. go dust the tops of all the frames and clocks. remove from water. dry off. use sharpie to draw faces on eggs (that’s how you tell the boiled from the raw, duh). put in fridge.  you’re welcome.

**13 minutes is the exact time needed for a. perfectly yellow insides, not that overdone green color, and b. if you slap it against the counter and roll it back and forth, the shell will come off in one piece… handy.
