Put on some latex gloves, Goosebuddies, because it's time to do some kitchen cleaning! You'll find many lost treasures under the sink: hand soap refills you forgot you bought two years ago, a little rat family that just wants to be left alone, and maybe a troublesome sponge monster that has control over fate itself.

This is a weird book where a 'Grool' bonds itself to its victim, feasting off the bad luck it creates with a lot of Final Destination type situations (which really doesn't make sense in terms of its survival as a symbiote). We obviously go off on tangents immediately but if you'd like to skip the banter about Stephen King, erotic anime, and evangelical cartoons the actual book discussion starts at 21:13. Enjoy!

This is a particularly raunchy episode of Goosebuds, friends. Not sure why; maybe we're just all really hot and bothered by the idea of canned monsters. In this episode Chad, Dom, and Paul talk public event notification systems, cock socks (and cock mummies), daggerin' & dancin', Captain Stabbin', and the weird fetishes of Monster Blood. That's right; we discuss Chapter Three in 'The Chillogy' of goopy globs of giantism. Hope you enjoy.

This episode is ready to rip out of the mint-sealed box, Goosebuddies! In this Adventure! episode Dom leads Paul and Chad through the Give Yourself Goosebumps book: Toy Terror. Can the boys survive this toy factory and help these plastic people find independence? They also discuss The World Tree of Ska, Second Skin the horror documentary Second Skin, The Monty Hall "Problem", and cool Mac tattoos.

Set down the book, Goosebuddies because this time we're turning on the boob tube. Dom, Paul, and Chad watch two "classic" episodes of the Goosebumps TV series. First, "Don't Wake Mummy", a pretty mundane tale of a scaredy boy and his sister whose archaeologist mother commits mail fraud and brings a real ancient pharaoh into their basement. And worst of all; he may become a real, living murderer! As opposed to a zombie one.

Up next is the show-exclusive "Click" which so clearly inspired the Adam Sandler emotional comedy. Watch as a boring kid buys a magic remote and only uses it to get the newspaper. Also the boys discover a secondary background TV show that is way more interesting than the episode we're watching.

We hope you enjoy our occasional dips into the silver screen of spooks!

DING DONG Goosebuddies! Chad, Dom, and Paul read The Cuckoo Clock of Doom; a time traveling horror story where the greatest fear is having your diaper changed by your mother. In this story a child reverses the bird on an antique wooden clock and is forced to relive his childhood in reverse, doing nothing to change his fate. Chad thinks this is the worst book yet while Paul loved it; so this is a real divider.

The boys also talk about George Romero's Monkey Shines, wheelchairs you blow into, a strange alternative satire called 'SFW', that dude who got his weiner cut off in the 90s, jackin 'em up, Jarhead movie sequels, and again cover the perfect way to get away with murder using time travel.

Your wish is granted Goosebuddies- it's a new Adventure! episode! Chad's your DM as he reads Dom & Paul a Give Yourself Goosebumps book: The Scream of the Evil Genie. But watch out because this carbonated conjurer is taking every wish very subjectively. And the kids are real dumb.

The boys also talk about which Muppet Baby was murdered, Unsolved Mysteries, and invent a new game based around a nationwide manhunt. Bonus: Enjoy the sound of Chad's bird Samson chirping all the way on the other side of his house!

Happy holidays, Goosebuddies! It's a new year! Hopefully we're all still alive and the robots haven't taken us yet! Speaking of being alive... the boys have dug into a Goosebumps: Most Wanted tale about holiday undead (that really don't do much other than guilt trip ya). Preceded by an opening prologue that is the darkest thing RL has ever written, we read the tale of Kate Welles who just wants the lead in a play that would never be allowed on stage, let alone in high school. And Chad falls on his sword arguing that the production is a stealth Halloween story. There's sorta some playing around with the idea of "Christmas spirits" and a missed opportunity to play off A Christmas Carol, but otherwise this is a holiday book we guess.

Also the boys talk weird church experiences, eating communion bread for fun, and discovering the dark joy of Victorian Christmas cards. Enjoy the episode. Merry Slinksmas!

Note: Apologies for the weird audio on Chad, buddies. He had to record this in his parents' basement while visiting in Indiana and as we all know audio just sounds different in the midwest.
