Show #124: Bonercat

The ownhunder-twinnie-4’d episode of our podcast, Paul and Storm Talk About Some Stuff for Five to Ten Minutes (On Average), is now online.

This week’s episode: we are joined by our friend Josh A. Cagan, a Real Hollywood Screenwriter Person. Together, we dwell on the topic of Bonercat; discuss Josh’s origin story; writing in TV vs. for films; moving to Los Angeles and drinking the Kool-Aid; movies for kids and tweens and giant robots; fictional vacation spots; and a Stalinist propaganda challenge. Also, Kim Evey but definitely not Greg Benson.

AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION ALERT: If you could spend a vacation in any location from fiction, where would you go?

    If I may be a bit lowbrow about this, Castle Rock, Maine is where it’s at. Something is ALWAYS going down in Castle Rock.

    So I’d want to spend a vacation there, but I wouldnt want to live there.

    Varykino, in the Lake Country of Naboo. Of course, it’s probably going to be really over-developed and touristy now, with all the locals muttering about how it used to be so much quieter a long time ago.

    1. I LOVED UnderGrads. I watched every episode and wanted more. So it was pretty fairly awesome that I got to listen to an interview with the guy who wrote it. Thank you Paul and Storm for your awesomeness as always.

    2. Farbeit from me to disagree with the Overlords, but I think the propaganda would have to go to the Cereal Box art. Cereal Box art is specifically designed to grab kids attention and get them to bug their parents into buying it, plus, kids always read the stuff on cereal boxes while eating their cereal. At least, I always did. And it’s just simple logic that once you have the kids indoctrinated, you’re more than halfway done with the job. They’ll grow up with that mindset, and their kids will learn from them, and the cereal boxes, and the cycle will continue.

    3. I would not want to go to Milliways- at least, not as a vacation/hang-out-for-a-day spot. I think it would be cool to eat there, but knowing my luck, it would be the ONE TIME the time engines broke down and the universe actually DID end for real.

    For my vacation spot, that was a tough choice. I wanted to pick Mid-World and hang out with Roland and his Ka-Tet, but then realized that it was never a happy place, even at the best of times. Then I thought about the TARDIS, but that’s not really a location, and neither Gallifrey nor Skaro did it for me. So I went to my third favorite fantasy setting, and Discworld it is. I would love to spend a couple of weeks there. See the Unseen University, get my autograph hat signed by Moist, Vimes, Carrot and Nobby, try not to upset Lord Vetinari. It would be fantastic.

    I’d like to spend time in Narnia. But not during the White Queen’s reign, nor during the time of The Last Battle.

    It has to be a fictional vacation spot? I mostly read historical fiction, so I haven’t read anything about fictional worlds in a long time.

    However, if we’re talking REAL vacation spots, I REALLY want to hike the Annapurna circuit through the Himalayas.

    I think I’d like to visit Westeros and see all the sights. Maybe Hodor could be my tour guide.

    I’d like to see Westeros, but I don’t think I’d like to actually go there, if that makes sense. I don’t exactly rate my chances of survival there very highly…
