Maddie’s Read of the Week

I was kept up by anxiety for no reason last night, and wound up reading about the incredibly fascinating case of Treva Throneberry/Brianna Stewart. I don’t have much commentary to provide, but I couldn’t put this article down, and wanted to share with anyone who happens across this.

Some of My Favorite Podcast Episodes (Part 1)

I don’t know how you came across this blog exactly, but in case you couldn’t tell from the last few posts, I really love lists and spreadsheets. This love has grown exponentially as I’ve gone through grad school, and lost time to work on creative writing and art.

One of the growing spreadsheets I’ve kept for the past 9 months or so is all the podcasts I’ve listened to, along with date of release, my rating and a link to the podcast. What follows are my favorite episodes I’ve come across in that time. I’m labeling this list as part one, because with this ongoing project, I’ll definitely have more I want to share.

Enjoy, other bored podcast dorks!

Some of my Five Star Podcast Episodes (Listened to from 8/17/17 to 5/4/18) 

  1. Mystery Show (Gimlet)Case #3: Belt Buckle (June 18, 2015)

    I happened upon the Mystery Show, hosted by Starlee Kine, after catching up with all my other favorite Gimlet podcasts on a whim one day, and fell completely in love with the show and it’s incredibly sincere and passionate host. This episode is about a homemade novelty belt buckle found by a young boy in the 1980s and kept for 30 years. As an adult, the boy has decided it’s time for the buckle to return to its rightful owner, and Starlee goes on a mission to find them.

    The ending of this episode gave me goosebumps in the best possible way. I was seriously impressed with the storytelling and was very disappointed to realize the show only has 6 episodes in total, and is no longer active. I love a good non-True Crime mystery, and those can be hard to come by.

  2. What Really Happened Without a Voice

    This episode really gave me some insight into Britney Spears’ career, and in particular her infamous breakdown in 2007. The host explains the lesser known legalities of the case, and remains sympathetic to Spears’ struggles throughout the entire episode. I went into the episode with fairly neutral feelings on B. Spears, and left with a newfound love and appreciation for her.

  3. Internet Explorer – “I Sent Porn to the Entire Company” & Other Horrors (March 17, 2016)

    I really love podcasts that explore the internet, because I spend so much time there myself, and the hosts of Buzzfeed’s Internet Explorer clearly know what they’re talking about. This episode talks about the host’s group chat with friends and the ridiculous and awful things that could possibly be brought to light if any one of them ever gets into legal trouble.

  4. TLDR (WNYC) – GodTube (January 8, 2015)

    A short and succinct little podcast episode about a Christian youtube clone, GodTube and its niche community. Not extraordinarily in-depth, but interesting (especially if you’re as fascinated by Christian fundamentalism as I am)

  5. The Mortified PodcastJessica: I was a Teenage Prison Wife

    In searching for more information about the lives of Prison Spouses (Thank you, Love After Lock Up!) I came across this episode of the Mortified podcast and spent the next hour stifling my laughter at my cubicle. Like with many of the Mortified podcast episodes, the author’s unabashed honesty and lack of personal censorship is what makes the story work. If you listen to this, prepare for a fair amount of second-hand embarrassment, as well as some harsh reminders of what you were probably like as a teenager.

  6. Every Little ThingThe Voices Hiding in your Favorite Movies (December 4, 2017)

    This episode changed the way I observe movies and TV shows. Never before had I considered the life of a background voice actor, and this episode provides an excellent break down of the industry and how these actors operate. It made me acutely aware of the level of detail put into the media we watch, much of which, we just never notice.

  7. Do Go OnBenjamin Franklin (July 5, 2017)

    This podcast almost never fails to crack me up, and this episode is by far my favorite because along with being a huge comedy nerd, I’m a big fan of Colonial American history. This break down of the life of Benjamin Franklin from three New Zealanders offers hilarious perspective on Franklin as a figure, and allowed me to view what I know of the era and its prominent figures with some fresh eyes.

  8. First Day BackLovebirds (April 11th, 2017)

    If you’re someone who is interested in the criminal justice system, this entire season is a must-listen. It paints a complicated picture of life after leaving the prison system, and how one woman attempts to atone for committing a crime she can’t even remember.

  9. A Very Special Episode PodcastEpisode 17: Leave it to Beaver – “Beaver and Andy” (May 8, 2017)

    I love shows that review old, strange or especially bad media. A Very Special Episode podcast is just what it says on the tin, a podcast about Very Special TV episodes. This is one of the few podcasts I’ve encountered that reviewed any episode of Leave it to Beaver, and the hosts do a fantastic job at poking fun at the show, while still acknowledging its significance to TV history and noting the ways it differs from what an unfamiliar view might expect from a 1950s TV show. (P.S. Ward Cleaver is def one of my favorite TV Dads–He actually admits when he fucks up!) 

  10. RedhandedThe Drag Queen & Her Costume Cupboard Corpse (October 12, 2017)

    Redhanded, hosted by Suruthi-laya Bala and Hannah Maguire, is by far the best True Crime podcast I’ve listened to. Too often when I find an episode about a case I’m interested in, I wind up frustrated by the hosts lack of detail, bad sources or lack of respect for victims of violence. Suruthi and Hannah manage to make me laugh through some dark episodes, but manage to never make jokes at the expense of these victims. This case is particularly fascinating for those who have seen the 1990 documentary, Paris is Burning about drag queen culture in New York in the 1980s, because the (most likely) perpetrator of this crime was featured prominently in the film. To further entice you into listening, here’s the episode’s description: “Dorian Corey, drag queen superstar, was the queen of queens in life – but when she died, a bizarre and horrifying mystery was revealed. What her friends found hidden in the back of her costume cupboard, zipped up in a dress bag, shocked the world.”

Public Affairs Pamphlets

All week I’ve been trying to find information on these damn pamphlets. Not even for some kind of practical reason, just because I was curious and not being able to find something I want to makes me all obsessive and frustrated.

I happened across a few of these pamphlets on (my internet bestie), and thought they were really neat and surprisingly progressive given the period they were written in. What follows is a list of known issues, their titles and issue numbers and links to the issue if found.

If you have any further information on these pamphlets, or know anywhere that has made a point to digitize them, please let me know. I’m compiling the list based on bibliographies found online, and I would love to know more about the pamphlets’ production and writers. This list will be updated if I find more information, and further posts will be made with lists of the later issues.

Update 5/4/18 – I finally found the story of how the committee began on HathiTrust 

(This list is insane, so please bear with me. I just want to help out future obsessives like myself)

Weird Children’s Coloring Books I found PDFs of Online


A D.A.R.E. Coloring book from 2017 that seems to have nothing to do with the organization

Made for King County, North Carolina with the help of sponsors from around town, this coloring book offers terrible art AND puns.



Billy and the Basketball: A Coloring Book about Savings

Dear everyone: please pay your artists fair wages.

The art in this one is even worse than before, making it obvious that someone was not paid enough to care about this project. The text from the images runs off into the text of the story, making it illegible, but I imagine there were very few outraged children complaining about it. Also, the text is all in Comic Sans, as if that were at all acceptable in the design of ANYTHING.

Side note, though: these pictures don’t even look like they would be fun to color.


Hush, child. Obey the bug. 

Buckle Up Bug’s Activity Book

Haven’t your children always wanted to learn about car safety from a child-sized anthropomorphic bug? It’s just like that beloved children’s icon, Gregor Samsa!




Exty and Hydro’s Fire Safety Activity Book

Your name is bad and you should feel bad. 


This one is pretty much only noteworthy because of the AWFUL name they gave the fire extinguisher. Three seconds after I showed it to my friend, Tam, she came up with “Flamer” and “Red,” both of which are better names than EXTY.


Good Health is in Your Hands Coloring Book

The cover image is of our main character, Soapy, getting sucked into a bubbly abyss. In black and white the character proves to be even more frightening as the S around his eyeballs leads to some unnerving crazy-eyes.

Also, Soapy’s mom is Bubble Bath for some reason? Also, this anthropomorphic soap lives with his mother and gets tucked in nightly.



Internet Folklore

Whoops. I didn’t blog for almost a year and a half. Thanks, to the person who commented on an old post and reminded me that this blog even existed. Gonna have to fix all those dead youtube links too. 

As anyone who knows me personally can tell you, I am a woman of many lists and spreadsheets. The majority of these are recreational. I have one for podcasts I’ve listened to and want to listen to, more than a dozen for PDFs of cool stuff I’ve found online, one that meticulously keeps track of the titles and popularity of my artwork and one for bad movies I still need to watch, among others.

I think it’s one of those things that scares people a little bit when they see it, and it definitely looks more than a little neurotic–which, in case it’s not clear by now, I am. But over time, I’ve realized it allows me to feel much more in-control of my life than I have before, plus I have easy to find references for the things I read about when they inevitably come up in conversation.

One of the lists I’ve been carefully tending to this week is one I call Internet Folklore. I haven’t totally decided what the term means exactly, other than fascinating stories and mysteries that have largely taken place online.

Here’s a short list of my highlights, and please, if you think of anything else that applies let me know! I’ll add it to the list :3

The Goddamn Denko Saga (A.K.A. (´・ω・`)) 

Oh god. This one hurts in the weirdest way. I was only shown this one about a year ago by some friends, and it was impossible for me to stop reading. It has one of my favorite elements of online stories–the unreliable narrator. And boy, this one is extreme.

It started on 2chan with this text from OP:

There’s this girl I’ve had feelings for since high school, and now we’re in college together. We’ll call her Denko.
Once we hit second year, we went out drinking, and I worked up the courage to exchange numbers.
We started out talking often, but she hasn’t answered me in three days now.
I’m getting depressed just thinking that Denko might be sick, or that something happened to her… (´・ω・`)
Please, somebody give me some advice.

This results in comments with some genuinely horrible advice, but OP takes it seriously and ends up tormenting poor Denko with his bizarre behavior and skewed logic. It’s a journey, that’s pretty much all I can say.  It does get NSFW with language at times, so probably don’t read it at work. That kind of goes for all of these…and the internet in general.

Is it Normal for my Husband to only have Sex with me Through a Hole in the Sheet? 

This one is a new addition to the list, as I only found it yesterday, but I was laughing so damn hard it moved up to my top five. OP starts a thread on the Baby Center forums asking if other women have sex with their husband through a hole in the sheet. Everyone initially responds with a resounding “Um. No,” but then another poster comes in and shares her own experiences–and love for–sheet sex.

On page 8, OP posts a picture of the sheet her and her husband use–and admits that they still use it as a normal sheet and sleep under it. On page 63, the other Sheet-Sexer says:

Yes, my children were conceived using the sheet. I have a special wreath drawn around each hole that was used in the conception of our children, and we only make love using those holes on our children’s birthdays.

So, yeah, this one gets a bit weird.

Kevin, the dumbest teenager ever 

If you haven’t read this one, you need to stop what you’re doing right now and do so. It’s been referenced all over reddit, and even led to a spin off subreddit. The details of Kevin’s stupidity are stranger than fiction, and made me laugh out loud. This is one I definitely come back to on rainy days when I need a good laugh.

A Hilarious Argument Between Bodybuilders

This thread starts off simply–OP asks if it’s reasonable to work out every other day. Then the conversation derails and results in a very intense argument about how many days there are in a week. Both sides are wrong on their math, and their sheer frustration over the conflict makes it even better.

A classy quote from the first page:

I have a feeling you are so mentally retarded that we need to take the “week” lingo out of this and go to numbers.

Do what I said above, tell me how many times you train in 4 SEVEN day weeks, aka one month.

Use the calendar for your retarded eyes to see the truth.


The PeenaKolada Story – A Tale with a Happy Ending

Let me first point out that on BabyCenter, all of the OP’s comments can be read together by clicking on “all comments from Original Poster” underneath the first post. I strongly recommend that because this thread is looooong. 

It starts with OP on a vacation with her fiancé and her soon to be Mother-In-Law, who OP didn’t want on the trip in the first place. Her codependent fiancé, it turns out, invited MIL on the trip when she volunteered to pay for it herself. They end up staying in the SAME suite, MIL wakes the couple at 5AM to go to every available activity and refuses to let them have any time to themselves. After bringing her issues to DWIL (Dealing with In-Laws on Baby Center), OP makes an ambitious escape, making for an incredibly fun and satisfying read.

Have a fun and safe trip down the Rabbit Hole, everyone!


What I’m Watching Today: Fear of a Punk Planet (1999-2000)

Link to Episode 2

Link to Episode 3

So, I can’t even really remember where I heard about this one. I just wrote it down on my ever-growing “To Watch” list without any context. The title itself caught my attention, it’s the name of a Vandals album from 1990, and in fact, Joe Escalante of the Vandals appears in the show as the owner of a punk club called “Baby Seal”

I can only find 3 episodes of the show online, however Joe Escalante’s Linked-In page says he was the showrunner for 7 episodes. It was created for an early internet television network called The Digital Entertainment Network (DEN). It was the only show on the network that acquired a fan base, and this is likely due to the punk in-jokes that appear throughout the episodes. Apparently, a comic book based on the show was released last year in August, and the episodes are actually available on DVD.

What really intrigued me about the show, and why I ended up watching it, was the inclusion of bands like NOFX and Sick of it All. This is, I think, what makes the show memorable. Kyle Gass, of Tenacious D fame, stars as the Fire Marshall that is always after those dang punk kids, trying to shut down their beloved club.

I really don’t know what to make of this show. At times, it seems to be /r/fellowkids material, but the script was actually written by Joe Escalante as well, so he definitely does have some insight into the scene. Some of the kids on the show make edgy jokes, (warning: shitty joke about sexual assault to follow) like one where the girls of the group talk about how “rape-able” a guy is. Even though these things make me pretty uncomfortable now, it did remind me of some of the kids I hung out with back in the day, and, unfortunately, it is something that would have been said. That said, I still think it’s a dumb and dated thing to include in this script.

The show is cheesy, the jokes are corny, the plot is predictable, and the characters are all straw men, but for some reason I couldn’t turn it off. It has an undeniable charm to it for reasons I can’t entirely explain.


  • The theme song is The People Who Are Going to Hell by the Vandals, which I love.
  • Kyle Gass is the main highlight of the series. The show’s script is terrible, but he manages to make some poorly written lines laugh out loud funny with his delivery. His first line is actually a great example of this. Joe Escalante, as the club owner is upset with Gass, as the fire marshall, tells him that the club is a fire hazard, and Gass responds:

This place is a fire trap…the wiring is shot, the ventilation is bad. Look, I’m not going to compromise the safety of anyone, even these deviant children.

  • Right after he says that, he calls an Asian girl, “Mulan.” Ooof.
  • Another golden Kyle quote: “It’s time for your freaky friends to go back to whatever misfit holes you crawled out of. This club is unsafe!”
  • Joe Escalante is not a gifted screenwriter or actor.
  • The censorship on the show is interesting. It was only ever on the internet, so they say ‘fuck’ freely, but for some reason the word ‘dick’ is bleeped out?
  • This is definitely a realistic depiction of what a low-budget punk club looks like, though.
  • The fire marshall is so against punks that he CHAINS UP THE FIRE DOOR and frames the club owner for doing it. That’s a fucked up level of corruption.
  • One character condemns another for making a gay joke, and then proceeds to make a bunch of gay jokes about the male-dominated hardcore scene.

“If you’re going to make a gay comment, save it for your H20 dudefest! I mean, do they even let girls into hardcore shows? Or do they spoil your homoerotic cretin moshpit?”

  • The guy in question responds to that comment with “Aaaayyyy! Watch that shit! I’m Italian!”
  • The corrupt Fire Marshall finally gets Club Baby Seal closed, which leaves the punks to figure out how to save their favorite venue.

Punk 1: So, what’s the deal? Why’d they close the Club Seal?

Punk 2: Because they think we’re freaks! So they took away our club hoping we’d disappear! I’m sick of it! I’m tired of being treated like a criminal ’cause my hair is different, and the music I like isn’t on MTV!

  • The dialogue in this show is seriously taking me back to things I said in middle school, and it’s incredibly embarrassing.
  • One girl is a crusty punk, and the butt of many crusty jokes. When Italian guy says, “Ayyy! Leave the little anarchist alone!” She corrects him and says she’s a Republican. Her explanation? “Less Government.”
  • There is a montage of the punks doing research into how to save their club, which has some spectacular shots of late 90s-early 00s punk websites.


  • So, as the website says, the punks decide to make the club a non-profit so that damn Fire Marshall can’t shut them down! But then, when they take it to the club owner, he’s not so enthused. But the gang ends up convincing him by shouting his own band’s lyrics about fighting the man at him. Can you imagine if a bunch of teenagers were shouting your teenage poetry at you? Ugh. Makes me shudder even thinking about it.

So, despite it’s obvious weirdness, I think Fear of A Punk Planet is worth watching for any nostalgic former (or current) punk kids.  Also, I would love to hear another human’s feedback, because I’m still not totally sure how I feel about what I just watched.



Some Happy YouTube Videos to Get You Through

I’m someone who has struggled with depression for a long time, so for the last couple years, I’ve kept a playlist on YouTube called “Make Me Happy,” so if I ever need a laugh, or a reminder that the world can be a good place, I can go watch my playlist.

I have a feeling some of you are going to need to be cheered up today, so I thought I’d share some stupid internet videos that get me through the tough times.

Deep breaths, folks. It’s all going to be okay.

I saw this video years ago, when I was still in high school and it’s just always stuck with me. It’s a really fantastic little animation, made by artist Dimitri Frazao as his senior film at CalArts.

This video will allow you to feel joy again, however faint the feeling might be right now.

This fish has perfect comedic timing.

Look at this giggling newscaster! One day, you will laugh again!

Go, Pablo, Go!
