Ep 101 - Adventure! - D&D Endless Quest - Into The Jungle
Release Date: 05/03/2021
We did it, boys and ghouls! This marks us covering every book in the main Goosebumps series! We share the honor with thousands of 90s kid who binge read these things to earn Pizza Hut Book It points. We're gonna take a day to congratulate ourselves and then dive back into the good work as R.L. is still pumping out stories and he only grows in power. This tale of giant sea creatures is certainly no Haunted School but it's a fitting tale to cap R.L's original 62 books as it's filled with pranks, fake outs, marine vore, and a big womp womp of a joke ending. We hope you enjoy it as much as Billy...info_outline Ep 109 - The Haunted School
You hear that bell? School is back in session. Kevin, Chad, and Paul hang out and discuss this late entry into the core Goosebumps collection. While none of us recall this book from our youth, this one rocks. It's bursting with ideas including dead child statues, roaming packs of wild dogs, tall goth girls, cease-fire proms, sideways elevators, evil photographers and The Pit. OFF TOPICS: Everything is nothing, The Green Knight, Chappie in bed, Chad badly summarizes Mighty Morphing Power Rangers lore, ear candles, Junior Mint Juleps. Book discussion begins at 07:15 You can support the...info_outline Ep 108 - Fear Street: 1666
This is it! The end of the Fear Street Netflix 'Chillogy' (which is secretly a tetrology but there isn't as obvious a horror pun for that). Paul returns from his West Coast travels to join Kevin and Chad as they discuss the finale of a six-hour tale filled with class division, tripping on berries, sapphic stories, kill count montages, crowdgasp.wav, The Konami Code, and a few twists that simultaneously strengthen the previous films while also making them less necessary? This is a really interesting horror series and we've had fun discussing them. Hope you enjoy the listen too! OFF-TOPICS: Mr....info_outline Ep 107 - Fear Street: 1978
Welcome to Camp Nightwing, Goosebuddies! Uncle 'Traveling' Paul is exploring the West Coast so your hosts tonight are Chad and Kevin. These two hairy-belly men discuss the second installment in this Fear Street movie 'chillogy'. This homage to Friday the 13th is brutal and there are a lot of sweet, innocent children getting axes in the face. We talk about comparisons to the Scream vibes of 1994, whatever themes the movies are going for, and the rules of 'Color War' games. Also that Silent Hill-esque cave heart was rad. OFF-TOPICS: Kevin's cosplay adventures, getting glomp'ed, Chad's ideal...info_outline Ep 106 - Fear Street: 1994
This is a big summer for Fear Street. We're in the midst of three feature films dropping on Netflix, telling a story spanning multiple centuries and horror movie tropes. The Goosebuds Boys Chad, Paul, and Kevin talk about the first film: Leigh Janiak's Fear Street 1994. We have protagonist/angry-ex Deena, passive object-of-affection Sam, cheerleader/valedictorian/driven drug-seller Kate, self-loving goof Simon, and our token nerd Josh. These kids face many monsters but the most terrifying of all is small town class warfare! This movie has so many things to discuss and thus this is a BEEFY...info_outline Ep 105 - Werewolf Skin
Large parts of the planet are overheating, so what better way to cool off than a book about putting on heavy extra layers of wool and fur? This is a visceral book filled with viscera! Is 'Werewolf Skin' a fun twist on lycan lore? A metaphor for drug addiction? Or just code for someone's fursuit? The boys discuss and have a few laughs. OFF TOPICS: Burning mix CDs for romantic flames, revisiting The Culling, spawn camping your newborn, alternative child-bearing methods, pickling your child, Paul's emulator gift. BOOK DISCUSSION BEGINS: 18:15 You can support the show, get access to bonus...info_outline Ep 104 - One Day at HorrorLand (Reloaded)
Long ago in the early days of Goosebuds we read this book. But while Chad covered the book on an earlier episode with Dom and guest Dodger, Paul and Kevin never got to talk about it! They have things to say! This episode is RELOADED. :puts on cool sunglasses and trenchcoat, sits down in a comfy chair to read: We crack open the legendary tome about a deadly amusement park, the Horrors that run it, and dad anxiety. This book is still one of R.L.'s greatest works, and it was thrilling to discuss it. OFF-TOPICS: Paul's journey through the Goat Farm, Megan Thee Goat Owner, chicken buffs,...info_outline Ep 103 - My Best Friend Is Invisible
The power of invisibility is a sinister one. 95% of being invisible is doing dirty or spooky stuff. If you meet someone who says if they could choose a superpower that they'd pick invisibility you should watch out. That's a hot tip from your pal The Goosebuds. This Goosebumps book is a real 'Best Of' RL's story tricks: obvious solutions, ignorant parents, and a twist ending that makes us scream (with rage). Enjoy the listen as the Goosebuds Boys cover this story of a camouflage clinger. OFF TOPIC: The Secret of "Secretly Shaq" has been revealed, poorly, by Papa Johns. They stole this...info_outline Ep 102 - Salute Your Shorts: 'Zeke the Plumber'
The boys are going to Camp Anawanna, summer home of counselor Ug, lovable dolt Donkeylips, and the sentient piece of human garbage Budnick. There are other kids too. One likes basketball. If you consider that a personality trait. 'Zeke the Plumber' (otherwise titled as 'Ghost Story') is Salute Yours Shorts most infamous episode. The tale of an undead plumber with a cut-off nose and his cursed plunger is certainly memorable, but is it as scary as we through? Kevin, Paul, and Chad discuss this episode of pranks, spiders, and ruffled potato chips. OFF-TOPICS: Kevin's Birthday Month begins...info_outline Ep 101 - Adventure! - D&D Endless Quest - Into The Jungle
