Will Plays The Legend of Zelda Part 2

In Part 2 of this play through of The Legend of Zelda, Will absolutely sucks. It takes him literally an hour to beat a single dungeon.

But he tells great jokes about Jimmy Dean!

BCSC: Eleanor & Park

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!

Hello, young lovers!  We are gathered here today to talk about Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell.  Kristen's preconceived notions of Will's romanticism are shattered, tears are on the verge of being shed, and passionate discussion abounds.  It's basically a love fest.  Group hug!

We'll be back next week with an Extracurriculars episode, but remember to be ready to talk about the first 18 chapters of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows on Thursday, September 4th.  Talk to you then!  We're both dreading the end but looking forward to it.

Holy shit, I don't know why we didn't see this coming, but Saw 8 gets worse, it gets a whole lot worse.

Flashbacks continue to shove themselves into our eyes and ears, and we're given the briefest of looks into what's happening with the hospital crew, before the bombshell drops.

Jigsaw's end game...

He had a plan this whole time...

We didn't see it coming...

He's got his own Facebook page!

This week on Studio Rejects, shit is muffled and horrible sounding (literally the quality of the recording), but at least this movie is finally kicking into gear!

We've found Hannibal Lecter, and he's still obsessed with Clarice Starling! Not only that, but it turns out that Mason Verger (you know, the creep?) is a total creep! STUNNER!

No joke, I'm starting to enjoy this.

Welcome to our talk finishing up Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.  While we're happy to see you, it can't be ignored that this time we meet this time after the most solemn of events.  Let's pour out a little pumpkin juice for one of our fallen comrades.  Let's also freak out about how awesome Dumbledore is.  Let's also talk about how there's no such thing as a guilty pleasure and how I love watching crap tv.  Amen.

On the next Shmook Club we're going to invite our friend Bobby Koester back to the Shmook Clubhouse to talk about the first half of Watchmen by Alan Moore, so read up to Chapter 7 (meaning through Chapter 6, WILL) and be ready to talk about it on Thursday, June 26.  But we'll be back next week with an Extracurricular episode, so talk to you then!  Take 'er easy!

Studio Rejects: Ghostbusters III Part 1

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!

Click here to read along!

When there's something strange, and it don't look good, it's probably because it's an un-produced spec script for Ghostbusters III! That's right, all you spooks, specters, and ghosts out there, we're digging into the world of Ghosbusters, one of the most  beloved franchises in the entire galaxy, and also one of the most constantly debated properties:

Should they make another movie? A sequel? A reboot?

Well, we know they definitely won't leave it alone, so now the question is, how can they do the original any justice...? FIND OUT!

Well folks, looks like us weary ol' gunslingers are at the end of our journey.  Or is it the end of the beginning?  Let's find out!  This week we finish up The Gunslinger by Stephen King, and do some real (and justified) mean girl-ing, get into some existential universe talk, and learn some new words.  Join us!

Next book up is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and we're dividing this one into thirds because it's humongous.  So read up to Chapter 14, which is page 278 or at 32% on an e-reader, and be ready to hear us flap our yaps about it on May 15.  Talk to you then!
