Lost Tapes: That Cowboy...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRW_ms9Oxq0

Something like 3/4 years ago, Amanda Rich, a friend of mine, asked me (Will) if I'd help put together an audition tape for her. I wrote a little script and then decided to ask Bobby to help me out.

We threw out my script and made this.

Bobby is operating the computer in real time while Amanda is kind of telling him what to do, but mostly trying to describe what he's ACTUALLY doing.

So weird, so stupid, pretty sure it was useless for Amanda, but dammit is it funny.

WBKE - Super Secret Special Episode: Bobby Edition

Hello game/car/pod friends out there! If you follow our show AND I KNOW YOU DO, you'll know that last week, I (Bobby) was to present my solo cast, as Will took a week off from the show. I did not do that, however, because I was a pussy wussy and couldn't actually get my computer to work. WHICH is most of the problem regarding the extreme lateness in posting this episode tonight! Click on DIS to listen directly in your browser!

That's right, I'm now presenting my solo show, done alone in my room hovering right above a mess of soggy tacos I had delivered to my apartment. This week's show is a little shorter, not as funny, a little more out there, but still definitely entertaining. If one thing's come of it, at least I've gotten used to using garage band and what microphone settings do what!

WBKE - Kinda/Sorta Halloween Special! AND Scary Story Time: October 2012

Hey guys, first up,  I have to apologize for being a day late in getting these posts to you. Here in New Jersey we've holed up, waiting out the rain in the dark, but all that's behind us now because I've got not only the Halloween podcast for you, but also this month's Scary Story Time! So first up, here's an hour long show filled with not only submitted stories from friends and listeners, but also filled with some of our own experiences, which you can get by:

1. CLICKING HERE

2. Going to the WBKE iTunes Store Page, or searching for us on Stitcher!

I hope you enjoy the show, guys, because of a good few reasons it's lacking Bobby, but my girlfriend Allie and I still had more than enough to say! We'd initially planned to just do a half hour, but we naturally ended up doubling that!

Now it's time for a story though. This is one of my favorites and it comes to us from, as best as I can find, just "Johnny." There's something about it's insanely simple twist that I really like. I can't quite put my finger on it. But lets just jump right in:

The Couch

Ok, disclaimer: To the very best of my knowledge, this story is true. I don't expect to convince you - truth be told, I've had a hard time coming to terms with it myself. Cliche' as it may be, I really am a rational person, and, if not for this, I would probably be the most stone-faced atheist you'd ever meet. But, after much internal struggle and debate, I have come to the conclusion that there are things in life that simply can't be explained with reason, at least in the form in which we know it. Logic, for all the trust we place in it, is really nothing more than a candle, all too easily snuffed out. And when it is gone, we are left alone in the dark, and everything we would scoff at by daylight suddenly becomes very believable.

Alright, before I wax too melodramatic, here's my story.

I was very young; only 4 or 5, at most, before either of my siblings were born. It was just Mommy and Daddy and me, living in our little house in Great Bend, Kansas. Very quaint. We were a young family, without much money, and most of our furniture was second-hand.

It was the middle of the day; summer, hot, boring. I was playing marbles by myself on the thin carpet beside the huge, old, flower-patterned-couch. Mom was down the hall in the kitchen, and Dad was at work.

Why I was trying to roll marbles around on the carpet I don't know - we had a perfectly good linoleum floor, after all. But there I was, swishing the marbles back and forth, happily bouncing them into each other. Then, in my overzealous enthusiasm, I rolled too hard. My favorite marble - the clear, ruby-red one, zipped into the dark space under the couch and was lost. Damnit. Dad wasn't home, and he was the only one strong enough to move that huge old couch for me. I'd have to get my marble back myself.

I reached my hand under the couch, tentatively at first, then deeper.

Encountering no marbles, I pulled my hand out in disappointment.

Then, a hand reached out from under the couch back at me. I remember the image vividly, and I suspect I always will. It was a slim hand, with tapered fingers - a woman's hand. It was gnarled and wrinkled, as if aged, and it was dead black. Not black as in African, black as in dead. Of course, back then, I didn't know that corpses blacken as they decompose, so I didn't know what the black meant.

The hand reached out to me as far as it could, which was just up to the wrist. Then it retreated under the couch. Then it emerged again, this time pushing with it a little crumpled up, plastic bag with a logo on it I didn't recognize. It waited, as if expecting me to take the bag. Then, when I didn't, it pulled the bag back under the couch and was gone.

I got up, walked down to the kitchen, and told my Mommy what had happened. Why didn't I run screaming, or at least run? I don't really know. All I can say is, I was a little kid; a hand reaching out from under the couch at me didn't seem like that huge a deal. I hadn't yet learned what was and was not permissible in reality. I had no worldview.

Mom was skeptical, but walked me back to the couch and explained how I was probably imagining things. She even reached her hand under the couch to convince me that nothing was down there. Later, Dad lifted the couch up for me, and the only thing under it was, of course, my missing marble, plus a few more marbles I didn't even remember losing.

But here's the scary part...

For years, I remembered this - I even developed a weird fantasy of little hand-people living under the couch, and I, in my childlike innocence, believed that they would catch me and take me away if I ever reached into their domain again. Then, as I grew older, I wrote the memory off as a dream I had had as a child - cute, but silly.

Then, a few years ago, I recounted the story to my mother.

She gave me a funny look, and told me she remembered it, because, after all, she had been there. She told me that she remembered me coming to her in the middle of the day and telling her about the hand under the couch, and remembered being highly disturbed by my story, since I was an extremely quiet, well-behaved kid who didn't ever lie.

Then she told me about the couch itself. According to her, she and Dad had gotten the couch from the estate of an old woman who had actually died on it. This was the first time I had heard about this, but it sure explained why they got rid of the couch within a month of my story.

But here's part that truly frightens me, even to this day. The part that I have to try so hard to get out of my mind some nights. Remember that bag the hand pushed towards me? I've never forgotten the logo that was on it. And, recently, (as in a few years ago), I saw the same logo again, on what looked like the same type of bag, in a hardware store.

It was a bag of utility razor-blades.

THE END

Well that's a wrap on Halloween, everybody! I hope you enjoy the story, I hope you enjoy the show, and I hope you spread the word about us!

WBKE - Episode 41: Fetish Jade

Hey guys, welcome to a very special (VERY NSFW) episode of Will and Bobby Know Everything. Right off the bat, you'll hear Bobby and me giving you this disclaimer: This show sounds like shit (but no show will ever sound this bad again thanks to some new equipment we got), and this is the first show to our knowledge where the guest host seems to be genuinely annoyed by us. We debated all week whether or not to put this episode online, because there are quite a few moments where things get a little tense, but the fact of the matter is that our guests were perfectly friendly and interesting the clear majority of the time, and the tension itself is worth listening to. All in all, it's a rough conversation, but I think it's a great show!

So a huge thanks to our hosts Fetish Jade and Sophie, who I hope understand that my disclaimer is intended to give hopefully objective context for the conversation, and who I hope know we mean no harm! You can find them at FetishJade.com!

And here's how to listen:

1. CLICK HERE!

2. Go to the WBKE iTunes Store page, or search for the show on the Stitcher smart phone app!

3. Read our insanely detailed How to Listen page!

Also feel free to send comments/questions/hate mail!

Enjoy the show!

Episode 42 next week!

Will and Bobby Wrote Something: Part Six

Click here to start Will and Bobby Wrote Something from Part One! Last month I described Bobby’s and my effort to create a new show that wouldn’t require so much work or passion. After having created three shows together that asked a lot of us, the idea of creating a simple crime procedural felt like the right thing to do. Despite the fact that we never actually sent our scripts to anyone, we felt rejected. More than that, even though no one had ever actually rejected us, we felt like failures. I think we were about to give up before this show came along.

Surprisingly, Dissecting Henry Crane felt to me like one of the purest creative experiences we’d ever had.

The idea was to take the basic concept of The Silence of the Lambs and turn it into a TV show. We would start at “a serial killer is aiding the FBI in catching serial killers,” and branch outward with completely original characters. The idea works, has a staggering amount of potential, and can be tonally diverse, ranging from “fun,” catch-the-killer episodes to darker character-study territory.

As I mentioned, shortly after we began working on Dissecting Henry Crane (in approximately January 2011) a fully licensed show based on Silence of the Lambs was announced (in February 2011). That being the case, Bobby and I have very little of Dissecting Henry Crane down on paper, as we would meet up and mostly just talk out what the plot would be.

Over the course of these conversations, we had basically decided this:

Henry Crane is a serial killer obsessed with serial killers. It’s known that he would emulate the style of other killers, presumably as a means of trying to understand his desire to kill by following their methods. What this means is that no one knows just how many people he has killed. Some of his murders may have actually been pinned on the killer he was copying, and he may actually shoulder blame for murders he didn’t commit.

Henry was eventually caught by an FBI agent named Leonard Weston, and after the media attention regarding his arrest subsided, he had a controversial idea. Recognizing that in addition to being a murderer, Henry Crane is also an encyclopedia about serial killers, Leonard began to consult Henry on cases. Leonard would consult Henry (in his cell) about the likely motivation of an active killer, and Henry would lend both insight and theorize about the killer’s next move. Ultimately this proved a successful endeavor and eventually the news got out that the hero Leonard Weston was working with a psychopathic madmen. Public response was mixed, but they couldn’t argue with the success rate of the two, so they continued to work together for years. Eventually Leonard began teaching courses to FBI agents in training, and was allowed to teleconference Henry Crane into the room not only as an example of a killer but also as an assistant of sorts. They would go over the details of their successful cases for the students, displaying their techniques and experiences in catching murderers.

It’s here that the pilot of the show would have started, with Leonard and Henry years into teaching the course, when they meet a student named Ed Burger (a name I don’t like, but we used). Ed notices an inconsistency in a case Leonard and Henry solved, and his realization suggests that an innocent man was captured instead of a killer. The relationship between Henry/Leonard and the FBI/media explodes with claims that the Henry Crane manipulated Leonard into letting a killer remain free. It’s suggested that Leonard forgot the real threat that Henry poses, and allowed the lunatic to influence his actions.

Ultimately it’s decided that though Leonard was once a brilliant agent, his mind became corrupted by his constant associations with Henry, who is dangerous, but could still be useful with a fresh intelligent agent using his knowledge correctly. Subsequently, they decide to hand over the responsibility to Ed Burger, but warn him that any agent working with Henry essentially has a countdown to corruption above their head.

From here, the show we planned would have been five seasons long, each season centered on a major serial killer with the potential for self-contained shows centering on the capture of a smaller profile killer. We wanted to do a character study of murderers, and each season’s main killer would have their own in-depth character study, as well as some sort of connection to Henry, whether he’d emulated their M.O. at some point or even crossed paths with them.

One of the only actual documents I have of the show is not a good representation of the show, as it’s basically just a rambling series of ideas trying to flesh out Henry’s background and motivation. I wrote it and sent it to Bobby just before we scrapped the whole project and you can even see at the end that I’m literally listing possible ideas for a killer. At the end I assure Bobby that I’m just trying to hash out concepts and exploring ideas, which we could later fine-tune:

Dissecting Henry Crane – Pilot Concept

Season Four would have ended with Henry escaping, setting the stage for Season 5 to focus on Henry himself as the main killer, with revelations about his past, some sort of connection to Ed’s childhood (which we never agreed on), and the revelation that in addition to emulating other serial killers, he had actually developed his own unique method of murder.

This show felt like a breath of fresh air to Bobby and me, as it seemed truly novel. We thought we had stumbled on a formula that no one else had ever noticed before, and as a result we felt very clever. It was exciting. Dissecting Henry Crane could be the type of show where we were free to do whatever we wanted. We could have episodes centered on Ed’s home life, shows from Henry’s perspective, or shows centered on a one-off killer with a bizarre motivation. It was a sort of creative playground.

The news that someone had noticed the potential for a series based on Hannibal Lecter basically murdered Dissecting Henry Crane. And where we had at least been allowed months of developing The Dead Don’t Walk before news of The Walking Dead came to us, we were now allowed merely a few weeks with our new creation before being steamrolled. Given that we were also only just beginning to feel creatively empowered when the news came, I think we were completely thrown out of orbit.

When Dissecting Henry Crane ended, Bobby and I stopped writing together. At this point, there were four entire universes of characters, settings, and storylines that existed nowhere but in our minds, and I think we were too tired to go on. Writing is not easy when you care about what you’re creating, and we learned that even when we try to create without caring, we can’t help but become completely invested in our work. Ultimately I think that’s a good thing, it’s just our luck that let us down.

Well, there's luck and then there's the fact that, again, we never actually contacted anyone about anything. Ever.

Episode 34 next week!

Scary Story Time: August 2012

Hey guys, I know I'm a day late with this month's Scary Story Time, but deal with it, I've been globe trotting. Well...I flew to Oregon. As a matter of fact, it was a horror story in and of itself, one which I'll be writing about in the next few days. But that's not why you're here. This is: Quick disclaimer: I’m a really big fan of horror movies and scary stories. Recently I’ve been finding a lot of interesting little scary stories written anonymously by people on the internet, so I decided to start sharing some of the ones I like. You should know, before you read on, that I did not write any of these stories, unless otherwise noted. You should also know that I won’t always be posting stories that I enjoy 100%. There could be a ten-page story that I post because I like one sentence of it. In that case, I assume I’ll explain why I posted horse-shit and what merit I see in it. Sometimes, I’ll post “scary” stories that I hate, think are stupid, or maybe even funny. But more than that, you should really know that some of these stories may be somewhat graphic, so just steel yourself for anything, especially poor spelling and grammar (I don’t edit these stories). No matter what, though, I hope you enjoy them too, and if you know any stories or sources, please share them with me. Also, if you have any requests, just ask, I have a huge archive of this stuff!

So without much further ado, I'm going to post three stories this month, because each one is very short. These particular stories are interesting though, because they're among the first anonymously written scary stories I ever saw online. They're the stories that got me interested in scouring the internet for more. So lets get to it:

Don't Worry About It

You're slowly stirred awake by the distant ringing as the phone beside your bed pulls you out of your dreams. Your thoughts gather themselves and you groan, reaching over to answer. As soon as you place the phone to your ear, you're greeted by the background noise consisting of twisted screams. There were people in agonizing pain begging for help or death, not that the interference allows you to hear any individual voice clearly enough. "Get out of the house now!" The call ends abruptly after what you could have sworn was a voice from closer to you than on the other end. You shift yourself to the side of the bed, sighing while rubbing your eyes. A call this startling and this early in the morning would keep you awake. Your wife shuffles to the side, apparently also woken by the call. She wraps her arms around you and gives a light kiss on the neck. "Don't worry about it." Her half-asleep mumble calms you down somewhat. Just as you're about to place the phone down, it rings again. You fumble slightly and drop it. Instead, you feel your wife's arms tighten around you, preventing you from leaning forward. It's then you notice a subtle difference between the arms around you and the familiarity of your wife's. "He's too late to save you anyway."

The End

Spooky. That one might seem stupid to you, but it kind of gets me. No matter what, I think we'll all agree that this next one is fucking completely stupid:

Hungry Snake

There was a couple from Florida who owned a python. It was a very large snake and they’ve had it for a while so they did not put it in a cage and they let it be free in the house. The couple started to become concerned when the snake stopped eating. All the snake would do is lay around and occasionally it would slither onto their bed and stretch its body out. They finally decided to take the snake to the veterinarian because it would not eat anything, even its favorite meals. They doctor did a thorough exam and turned to the couple and said: "You need to get rid of this snake immediately. It has been refusing his food because it’s getting ready to eat you. When it stretches out he’s measuring how tall you are and if he can fit you in his body."

The End

See? It's definitely one of the dumbest scary stories I've posted so far, but it follows a rule of scary stories that I really like. I love it when a scary story ends with a character suddenly revealing an obvious truth. I've posted stories before that end with a character basically saying: GET OUT OF THE HOUSE! THE THING YOU THOUGHT WAS HARMLESS IS DEFINITELY NOT! So do with that what you will. Anyway, I'll end now with a legitimately solid story:

The Bells

Two young girls were best friends. One day they were chatting casually and the conversation turned unexpectedly to the afterlife, wondering if there was such a thing. So, they made a little promise, whoever goes first would ring a bell from the other side to tell the other. They then bought a pair of bells.

Several years later, one of them died in a traffic accident. In the memorial service, faint bell sounds were heard. The friend was happy that she remembered her promise, and that there is someplace they might meet again someday.

… Then the sound became feverish as if the ringer was in a panic.

The End

Kaboom. What a nice little story. It's clever and atmospheric and just overall well done. It's one of the stories that I think Bobby would really like. Because he basically hates all of these.

Anyway, I think that's it for this month's Scary Story Time, so let me just tease you with a fun idea I had. Bobby and I are going to be spreading out into a new medium pretty soon, and I'm thinking of some new ways to do Scary Story Time. Maybe you'll be able to listen to me tell you one soon!

Thanks for reading, guys, I hope you enjoyed the stories, and feel free to talk about them or send me some either in the comments or at WillAndBobby@gmail.com!

See you next month!

They both are. Let me tell you about them: WBKE - Episode 29: Social Ineptitude Part Two

Picking up from last week, Bobby and I try to goad Erica (via Skype) to tell us as many weird stories as possible. It quickly devolves (or Evolves) into me basically shitting all over my old friends from high school. But don't worry, most of them deserve it. Assholes. It's possibly one of the best episodes we've ever done, and I'm a fucking fan of this show, so please check this out, regardless of whether or not your avoiding the Batman show:

MOVING ON

WBKE - Episode 30: The Dark Knight Rises [SPOILERS]

In this episode, Bobby and I plow right through the movie. From beginning to end. It works as a review and a critique. We sound like a couple of Batman experts, and then we start talking about shit that makes us cry, like a couple of weak losers. Anyway, find out what we think of the way Batman's story ends, about the film's treatment of The Joker, and what we hated and loved about it. It's a really great show!

Episode 31 next week!

WBKE - Episode 28: Social Ineptitude Part One

This week on Will and Bobby Know Everything, we have what became Part One of a long, weird conversation. Bobby's friend Erica joins us via Skype for an episode that covers so much ground, it's unbelievable. Gangs, racism, celebrities, and so much more. I swear to god I don't even remember talking about half this shit. It's awesome. Erica seems to be a bottomless pit of bizarre stories. She confuses me at every turn. Check this show out:

Now next week, Bobby and I are going to have TWO new episodes of the show online at once! We'll have Part Two of this conversation, obviously, but we're also going to have a bonus OPTIONAL episode centered around The Dark Knight Rises, which will most likely contain spoilers for the movie. So only if you have seen the movie or don't care about spoilers should you listen to that show. Assuming that not everybody has, we'll have the regular show up. At best, you get two shows, at worst, you still get one.

Scary Story Time: July 2012

Quick disclaimer: I’m a really big fan of horror movies and scary stories. Recently I’ve been finding a lot of interesting little scary stories written anonymously by people on the internet, so I decided to start sharing some of the ones I like. You should know, before you read on, that I did not write any of these stories, unless otherwise noted. You should also know that I won’t always be posting stories that I enjoy 100%. There could be a ten-page story that I post because I like one sentence of it. In that case, I assume I’ll explain why I posted horse-shit and what merit I see in it. Sometimes, I’ll post “scary” stories that I hate, think are stupid, or maybe even funny. But more than that, you should really know that some of these stories may be somewhat graphic, so just steel yourself for anything, especially poor spelling and grammar (I don’t edit these stories). No matter what, though, I hope you enjoy them too, and if you know any stories or sources, please share them with me. Also, if you have any requests, just ask, I have a huge archive of this stuff! Hey guys, it's the third and final Friday the 13th of the year 2012. Obviously we all know that this is the year the world ends, and having a trio of unlucky days is no coincidence. I'm here to honor the occaision with a scary story.

For those of you who listened to the WBKE LIVE show Bobby and I did (click here to watch), you heard my explanation of Mount Everest. You heard about the horrific conditions, about the dead zone, and about the human bodies that litter the mountain's peak. I happen to have a scary story for you, based on that idea. So why don't we just jump right in?

The Everest Corpses - True Story

When I read this, I couldn’t help but flashback to a story my uncle once told my cousins and I late one night at a family reunion. He was kind of notorious among the extended family; one of those reasons was that he went on an Everest expedition when he was younger. As kids, we adored him, even if our families tended to isolate him for reasons they wouldn’t say. In retrospect, I realize he was drunk that night, but I think that was the only reason he told us what he did when the other adults weren’t paying attention. My cousin asked him about the Everest expedition, and he told us that he’d lied. They’d climbed it, alright, but they never made it to the top as he had claimed. There were six of them, and they were climbing a standard route on the south face. A little after they crossed into the death zone and they saw their first corpse lodged in a ravine, the bravado of the men in the group dimmed. Their mood grew even worse when an unexpected snow squall came in and they had to camp for the night prematurely. My uncle visibly paled as he talked about setting up a tent within line of sight of a frozen body that clung to an opposing ridge. He kept peering at its distant contorted face until the snow blocked it out, his thoughts transfixed by how that face seemed twisted in eternal pain and horror. Whoever it was had died begging his friends to somehow save him from the impossible position to which he’d fallen. Sleep was difficult that night, but the rigors of the climb helped. He awoke at some point, his ears filled with the razor whistle of frozen wind from the storm outside. A hissed whisper kept him from getting up - the other two men in the tent were already awake, lying motionless and listening. Something was scratching around in the crunchy snow outside… but outside, the oxygen levels were too low for anything to survive. A quiet but continual cracking sound followed the scratches, as if something covered in ice was painfully clawing around. The sounds only lasted for a few minutes, but my uncle lost something of himself that night as he trembled there quietly while the icy horror wheezed “help me… help me…” outside in the dark. In the morning, their worst fears were confirmed. The high winds had torn open the other tent, and one of the men had been dragged out. On the dark and storm-torn slope, he was unable to find his way back, and had fallen and died on the same ridge as the other unreachable body. My uncle and his friends knew there was nothing they could have done - if they had gone out there they would have just died, too - but the incident ended the expedition. My uncle quieted as he described packing up in the sight of that nightmarish frozen corpse. It was hard to tell, but, the more he peered at it, the less the expression on its face seemed horrified and pained… and the more it seemed that its unnaturally wide mouth was actually a horrible grin. My uncle resolved to check the other tent’s damage to see if it really was from the wind when they got to base camp, but in all the commotion about the death of their friend, he never got the chance. That decayed and mocking leer has haunted him ever since.

The End.

Nothing about this story is technically supernatural, it's all plausible. Fuck, there's nothing more fascinating than that mountain, to me. It's the perfect setting for a horror story.

Now usually I'd end Scary Story Time with a picture of a goofy animal to help bring everybody's spirits from the depths of hell, and shake the fear out, but I have a better idea this month.

Along with my huge file of scary stories, I have another document which may not be as big, but is filled with some of the worst horror stories I've found on my searches of the internet.

So I'm going to cap the string of Friday the 13th's and end this month's SST with one of those. Here is one of the worst stories I've ever read. Good luck reading it:

Apartment 366

I just moved into my new apartment and there are some things... creepy things. Like blood on the floor or steak knives. One time I went up to go take a piss and I find MY steak knife in floating mid air! I ran from it but it still stabbed me! One day, to see if this would help, I talked to my superintendent about it. He said "Well, you see, a Serial Killer Rapist lived in that apartment." Then I say "Well then, how did he die?" Then he says "A S.W.A.T team killed him." He goes on "But the creepiest thing of all is that they never found his body." After I found out about this, I will move ASAP. If it's not to late...

The End.

That story is one of the worst pieces of shit I've ever read. I really hope a child wrote it. Now, that was ostensibly to help comfort you after the horrifying Everest Story, but I actually have one more thing to share with you:

Happy Friday the 13th, everybody! More Scary Story Time next month!
