Episode 59: Bookfore I Fall (“Before I Fall”, Part 1)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 59: Bookfore I Fall (“Before I Fall”, Part 1)

Hey, everyone. This week, we read the 2010 novel “Before I Fall” by Lauren Oliver as the first of a two-part series. The book is basically “Groundhog Day, Teen Edition”, but better (question mark?). It has its problems, sure, but Andie McDowell ain’t one of ’em.

Trigger warning for some discussion of teen death, including suicide.

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 58: James and Erin Write A Movie (“Time Travel Love Song”)

Hey, everyone! From the weirdos who brought you “Redo Year’s Eve 1” and “How To Make Friends And Resurrect Your Pets”, a new romantic comedy starring some people who are not named Steve! “Time Travel Love Song” is about, well, time travel. And love. And songs. And text-to-speech programs?

Hey, everyone! We sat down with Our Friend Marc again for a long and lovely conversation about obsessive-compulsive disorder and how it affects one’s approach to pop culture and fandom. We hit on a lot of topics during this chat, but in the end Marc ties it all up for us.

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 55: Smash That Like Button (YouTube)

Hey, everyone! This week we have a sleeper topic; one of those things that we probably should have talked about before now but for whatever reason we haven’t. But we promise we stay WAY more on topic this time than when we covered Firefly. (Mostly because Erin edited out the tangents for a future outtakes episode.) (You’re welcome.) Today we discuss YouTube–how our use of it has changed over the years, what we’re currently using it for, and how the next generation uses it. (Spoiler alert: Kids like weird stuff.)
