We have a thing for Helen Mirren.

Seriously, we all do. 

How do you like YOUR Helen Mirren?

 

 

If it’s her as Queen Elizabeth II, we totally don’t judge…

The new Blair Witch sequel is out. Did the original one scare the crap out of you?

We think we’re kind of badass, or at least Jess does.  The Gang talks about doing the Great American Horror Campout, a highly immersive horror camping experience.

Jess MAY want to read the terms and conditions:

http://www.greathorrorcampout.com/safety-terms-conditions/

During Great Horror Campout you may be handled, moved, bound, hooded and chained by our actors. You may witness strong verbal content, which may be considered offensive in nature. This content is part of the experience and is presented for entertainment purposes only.

Here’s a NOT so Scary Review:

Episode 37: Amazing Houston Comic Con with Chantell Renee and Melissa Algood

This week Jess and Earl are LIVE at The Amazing Houston Comic Convention.

http://www.amazinghoustoncomiccon.com/

This is a small con, but was quality. Instead of focusing on celebrities, it focused on artists.

 Our guests this week are two local Houston authors, Chantell Renee and Melissa Algood.

We had a blast recording with these two very funny and talented ladies and we can’t wait to hang with them again.

 Chantell Renee is the author of an Urban Fantasy series, “Belonging” and “Consumed.”  You can buy her books on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/Chantell-Renee/e/B00IWGKNBK

 Her author page:

http://www.chantellrenee.com/

 You can also catch up with her on Facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/chantell.renee.98?fref=ts

 

Melissa Algood’s book, “Blood on the Potomac” is also available on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/Melissa-Algood/e/B019D77YAO

Her author page:

https://melalgoodauthor.com/

Keep up with what she’s doing on Facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/melalgoodauthor/

 

These two ladies also have an anthology coming out in October called “Hair Raising Tales of Horror.”

The cover art looks great!

Episode 36: Weirdos

This week is all about weirdos. We’re not sure that’s different from any other week here in BFE, but hey, a theme is a theme.

 First up, a total weirdo, Michael Jackson. So weird that he died from an overdose of Propofol, a surgical anesthetic.

 Our second adventure was a trip to an Escape Room game. Our premise was to find a hidden object, the find the key to escape our “safe house” (We were fake spies.) If we took longer than 60 minutes, poison gas filled the room. So, yes, for 60 minutes, we were Schrödinger’s BFE Cat.
