BOU 014 – Halloween: Scary or Sexy?

BOU 014 – Halloween: Scary or Sexy?

Hey undead-heads, Dave here with this week’s update…

This week we had technical difficulties with Google Hangouts. Or I should say SEAN had difficulties (what else is new?), so we had to move the show to Skype and don’t have a youtube version for all the people who are gluttons for the punishment of watching us.

And of course… Skype SUCKED!

The audio quality dipped, clipped, and pretty much sucked all the way through, really fucking up the flow of the show, and making it perhaps our WORST SHOW EVER! I haven’t listened to the show’s replay yet, but I’ll guess it sounds like two squirrels either mating or killing one another. Or maybe both.

We opened the show with a reading of a one star review of one of our books. Don’t get any ideas on leaving a bad review in hopes we’ll read it. We won’t, you bastard. This was a one-time event.

This week’s topic was Halloween, as we all relived some of our favorite (and not so favorite) Halloweens gone-by. We learned that Johnny’s Halloween’s have always been boring, Sean once dressed as a cheerleader to try and get laid, and I talked about my favorite Halloween (which involved nudity) and least favorite (which involved a car of people chasing me as a child).

We also talked The Walking Dead’s long-awaited Governor episode, which (spoiler) kicked TOTAL FUCKING ASS!

That’s it for this week. Hopefully, we’ll return to Google Hangouts (and youtube) next week so we can return to sucking in both audio and video.

  1. I’m a huge Walking Dead fan since the beginning. I’m really enjoying this season, but you have to admit [SPOILER ALERT] the scene where the Woodbury guys kill the Army guys was a bit of a stretch for me.

    Yep, we know the Woodbury men are supposedly a “self-taught” militia who honed their skills over the 10 months since the outbreak. However, you have a heavily armed and guns at-the-ready, group of trained soldiers, who also survived those same 10 months. They’re out in the open so they can scout out anything coming their way. I’m supposed to believe that these amateur Woodbury guys were dropped off far away from the Army guys, then had to use extreme stealth to come up on either side of these soldiers, in a field of tall grass – and gun them all down in a cross-fire without getting into all out firefight. Sorry but that wasn’t totally believable.

    In any case the Governor had to kill the soldiers to avoid a power struggle, and leaving more supplies for his controlled population.

    • I totally agree with that. A little at the time, and a lot now that you say it.

    • I thought of it too… not necessarily the “Army guys” angle, but the way they annihilated them so completely from so far off. But then, this is a show where every shot with a pistol from 50 yards is a headshot.

    • I agree on that. Unless they were all trained snipers or something, which seems highly unlikely.

      But overall, I’m enjoying the hell out of this season, especially this week’s episode! Holy fuckballs!

  2. I feel sorry for Johnny and Dave because their Halloween experiences sucked. It is my favorite holiday. And it isn’t just about slutty girls (nice bonus) but it’s about the chance to be something you’re not. Also it is really fun scaring people. I hope you all weathered the storm well and get more into Halloween next year.

    • I grew up in a country where Halloween is still not all that popular, and definately wasn’t in the 80’s and 90’s when I was trick or treating. I once spent two hours walking around my neighbourhood with my friend dressed as the Karate Kid, where 90% of the people said Trick and made us fight or do a little dance – and didn’t give with any candy. It was total BS. I hate Halloween.

      Also-Nobody is going to explain why Sean sounded like Alvin and the Chipmunks for that last 5 seconds? Made me spit Pespi on my MacBook.

    • My Halloweens didn’t suck… they were just Halloweens. I didn’t have the epic cool experiences that you guys or Werner below had. We dressed up, got candy, nobody got chased or robbed, and there were no seriously awesome shenanigans. But it was definitely fun, for sure.

    • @Wade – Even though I don’t remember doing much on Halloweens, I still loved them a lot.

      My son is 5 and hasn’t really had the full Halloween experience yet. I’m thinking next year we’ll take him trick-or-treating.

      Of course, I’ll probably have a forensics team on call to check the candy for any traces of poison, razors, or bodily fluids because, as we all know, there’s a lot of evil fucks out there.

  3. It sucks for you folks who grew up in areas that don’t do Halloween right. I’m like Wade, it’s my favorite holiday. I grew up as a kid in Long Island, NY, where we could Trick –or- Treat literally all day long, if it landed on a weekend. We’d start about 10am, take breaks for meals with real food, go back out and end around 9pm.

    Now I live in New England, and loved taking my kids around the neighborhood. Now they’re too cool for that and just go to parties, which is fine with me, because now my wife and I go to huge adult only costume parties – and they’re frikkin’ awesome!

    • Halloween in Ohio is awesome. Much better than Long Beach. I loved growing up in Long Beach, but it was nothing like it is in this neighborhood, where all the houses participate and it’s GORGEOUS because of the changing leaves, which we don’t have on the west coast. And grown up parties are FUN!

  4. Hi guys! I also LOVE Halloween! I’ve been to Knott’s Scary Farm and, Sean, it kicks more ass than it use to! This was my 10th year, and this year they added a maze that you pay extra for and sign a waiver saying they can touch you and stuff. No, unfortunately not like that … hahaha. It wasn’t as intense as I hoped for, but it was still a lot of fun!

    I’m one of the girls that likes to wear slutty costumes. If you have a great body, why the hell not show it off?! I work really hard to stay in shape, so screw everyone else if they find it offensive. I love Jenna Marbles’ opinion on the matter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPPsf-Mi8FY&feature=g-user-u. Jenna rocks.

    I too am loving the direction The Walking Dead is heading. Johnny, I loved last season of American Horror Story. I haven’t seen any of the new ones yet, but I’m sure it won’t disappoint. Last season was suspenseful and erotic. What more can you ask for?!

    • I really want to go to Knott’s Scary Farm again!! Going there was some of the best Halloweens I ever had.

      I had to read that last paragraph twice. For a second I thought you thought Walking Dead was erotic, and I was all, “But I thought only Dave thought that?”

      • The Walking Dead is a four tissue show, for sure!

    • Pics or it didn’t happen. 🙂

      I did start American Horror story this weekend… it rocks!

    • You guys completely crack me up!
      Bahahaha Dave!!
      Johnny, we are friends on FB and I’m not shy. 🙂 Pics are posted! You can see too Sean, but Dave won’t friend me. LOL

      • That’s because he hates everyone. You can’t take that personally.

        • If Dave suddenly loved sunshine and roses, I’d know the world will be ending soon. I love Dave’s cynicism. He balances you and Johnny. I’ll still give Dave a hard time, I just can’t stay off THAT bandwagon!
