The second episode of our new and (improved?) format kicked off with a second installment of America’s Least Favorite Game Show, What’s Up Dave’s Butt?
Though Dave had nothing to talk about today, Sean managed to get a rant about Target and finger lickers out of him.
Which prompted Johnny to wonder if he’s an asshole because Dave seems to know way too many of the workers at Target while he doesn’t remember anybody. Or… does Dave just spend way too much time at Target?
FAN FICTION AND AMAZON’S NEW KINDLE WORLDS
We then talked about Amazon’s new fan fiction enterprise, Kindle Worlds, and what we think of the idea.
We also weighed in on fan fiction in general, and whether or not we’d ever write fan fiction.
We talked a bit about Sean and Johnny’s sci-fi shared world project, The Beam, which we’re opening up to a select group of writers. If it goes well, and people want to, we may open it up further, like Hugh Howey has done with his Wool universe.
We then got into a philosophical discussion about death to end the show on a goths in trees note.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Are you a fan of fan-fiction? If you’re a writer, what movie/book/TV show/ etc… would YOU want to write fan-fiction for?
Also, feel free to weigh in any of the other stuff we discussed this week.
See you next week with more Better Off Undead.
