So I’ve come to be a huge fan of Erin Mallon’s writing. Ever since Flirtasaurus last year, I’ve been grabbing at any and everything that she writes. But let me tell you, this was way crazy, so much different in a way from what I expected! It was craziness! It was a very short listen, so even though I got it later than planned, I was able to get it listened to by the time I’d planned to post this. Let me give you a short little review of each of the stories.
The first story, Invasion at Man Camp, was hilarious, but so so weird. Joe Arden was perfect in his role, I loved how annoyingly funny his characters seemed to be in this. It took place on a paintball field and the interaction between the two characters was so funny. There were some hilarious one-liners and terms introduced, such as savior stick.
The second story was the point of view from a cat and a fish, called Domesticated. The cat was very negative, having been neutered after slipping out for a little rendezvous with a non fancy female cat. And he was trying to tell the new totally upbeat goldfish about how he shouldn’t be trying so hard to please their owner, because he wouldn’t be able to do it.
The third story, Baby Fight Club. Wow! It was shocking the ideas that were thrown out by Teddy Hamilton’s character. But then, Shane East, so funny how he got swept up into it.
Next was Check-Out, set in a drugstore, and it had some really good kind of philosophical takes on people at a drugstore. But wow were the characters kind of creepy.
The 5th story, Good Working With Hands, reminded me so much of people that I’ve talked to where you can’t get anything talked about that you want to talk about because they totally turn it all around and back to being about themselves.
The final story was Thick Gnat Hands. And what the title comes from is so funny! It is something that I didn’t see coming, but when it did, I laughed so hard! Because I could totally see people coming in and asking for that at the bookstore where I worked. It was set with two men getting dialysis. The narrators were Shane East and Joe Arden. Again, Joe Arden’s character was just hilarious.
After that we had some bloopers which were definitely fun to hear as well!
This was totally a lot of manly bro type of stuff. Hilarious. All I can say is that Erin Mallon’s writing totally cracks me up and I look forward to listening or reading more from her in the future.
