Neurotic Owl

flying through clouds of uncertainty on wings of existential dread

Two coloured things in one week, what?



Credit for the base idea goes to whichever podcast I was listening to when someone mentioned a Schuyler sisters mash-up, but I can’t remember which one that was.  Maybe Mighty Fine Shindig?  I listen to a lot of podcasts, y’all.  Here’s the current list:

Botch Cast (listen to a bunch of nerds RPG it up as Marvel heroes!)

Mighty Fine Shindig

Story and Star Wars

Star Trek Slap Fight

There and Back Again (critical reading of the Hobbit)

Buffering the Vampire Slayer

Lore (urban legends — too creepy to listen to at night or alone in the theatre basement)

Dead Pilots Society

Slate’s Dear Prudence

We Can Do This All Day (MCU discussion)

Dear Mr. Potter: A Harry Potter Seminar

Radiolab Presents: More Perfect

My Dad Wrote a Porno

Hello from the Magic Tavern

Til Death Do Us Blart (a yearly watching of Paul Blart, Mall Cop II, because Kiwis are weird)


Dusted: A Buffy podcast




How Did This Get Made?

Wait Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me!

This American Life

The Moth


Judge John Hodgman

Thrilling Adventure Hour

Savage Lovecast

Pop Culture Happy Hour

Ask Me Another

Welcome to Night Vale


Wheeee!  In my defense, many of these are on indefinite hiatus or between seasons; I do NOT get every one of those every week or my phone would explode, and I would have no time left for audiobooks.


Places to buy stuff!

  • TEEPUBLIC: mostly t-shirts, a few other products.  Watch for sales, when shirts drop from $20 to $14!
  • REDBUBBLE: Just, I don’t know, a ton of different stuff.  T-shirts are more expensive than Teepublic, but there are a lot more options.
  • AMAZON: Home of the Geeky Gals Coloring Book!
  • ETSY: beaded jewelry, bags of creepy tiny dolls, and The Neurotic Owl Tarot

Did I miss something?  I think that’s everything.

booktopedgeThings that kind of sucked but also have a little bit of a bright side, I guess?:

  •  The NFL taking over our building for a week was a huge pain in the ass, but they left behind tons of snacks and maybe 12 cases of fancy-schmancy bottled water becuase I guess they have money to burn.  Don’t worry, we’re giving it all a good home.
  • I couldn’t figure out why my stupid shoe hurt this morning till I got to work and could take it off, at which point I discovered that Mooch had hidden a tiny pompom in the toe.  Awww.  But ow.  But awww.


What’s making me happy this week:

  • So much Star Trek: TNG.  I just really need something hopeful right now, y’all.  I’m watching it right now in split screen and THIS IS THE EPISODE WITH BEN VEREEN, gotta go!

    I am intrigued by the mention of your Dear Mr. Potter podcast. I will need to investigate. Have you listened to Witch, Please? I don’t know how big an HP nerd you are– I’m a big one– if you are too, you should check them out. They’re fab. (Sorry– sort of– to add another one to your extensive list!)
