I think that Die, Snow White! Die, Damn You!: A Very Grimm Tale is more of a mash up of many recognizable faerie tales. Rumpelstiltskin, Little Red Riding Hood, Hazel and Gretel, and of course Snow White. This audio performance proved to be hilarious at times, and is definitely for adults only as it is full of sexual innuendos, cursing and more than likely offensive to many. Sound effects and music is something that I am not accustomed to, it did make this performance much more enjoyable. All that said it did entertain me, making me wonder where on Earth will it go next.
KHDZ by David Beshears is an entertaining tale of what happens when red tape and ill completed paperwork in Heaven happens. John Smith is sent from Heaven straight to Hell. Although he repeatedly submits requests pointing out the error, he is doomed to spend some time in the hottest place on earth. As a result of the mistake, Smith is assigned to the Hades television station. Here he meets characters that are unique and obviously strange both in appearance and personality. On top of this he is forced to deal with programming that is anything but fun, it is boring, nonsensical and annoying – after all he is in Hell … no one is supposed to enjoy things there!
Founder’s day and the fear of pleasing Mr. Horn is overwhelming. All the Founder’s day games and activities are geared to make Mr. Horn happy. A record amount of lost souls in the parade and the paperwork error bring Mr. Horn to the station – first time in 4 or 5 years! Smith thought his time in Hell was bad? Wait until he meets Mr. Horn aka Nicolas Cage look-alike.
This presented quite a different take on Hell; highly entertaining. Michael Bradley did a great job of voicing the characters. It was light, frivolous and fun. Bradley didn’t hinder the fun – he kept it going.
I had no issues with production.

I think you could call Drunk: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse... One Beer at a Time National Lampoon's Zombie Apocalypse or think of it as The Hangover with Zombies. Yes, this audiobook was that ridiculous, full of crude sophomoric humor, plus enough penis jokes to last me at least the rest of the year. I hate to admit it but I was laughing out loud at times and at others it made me cringe with the overly misogynistic vulgarity. The first half of the story is little more than following a group of juvenile thirty somethings (I think) as they do a typical bachelor bar hopping party. Now these are the people that are rarely mentioned in a zombie apocalypse stories and I think it's because there isn't much to the characters, their not the military types or survivalists or individuals with troubled pasts as the typical stars of this genre. There was very little actual zombie encounters, however there were plenty of other ways to be disturbing. If you are looking for something different yet entertaining in the increasingly overcrowded zombie genre, you will love it or hate it, but you will certainly remember, Johnson's undertaking.
