  • "TESD Being TESD"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    OK. If you don't listen to TESD on a regular basis I have two things to say: First, why? Second, buckle up.

    Incredibly hilarious retelling of a number of fairy tales. Walt, Bry, and Q (can't forget Sunday Jeff) are all in rare form. I couldn't breathe I was laughing so hard.

    That being said, if you aren't familiar with these guys, you may be in for a rude awakening. They are incredibly inappropriate and foul mouthed, which I love. But may not be everyone's cup of tea.

    Great job boys.

    It's anything but Grimm when the Tell 'Em Steve Dave crew gives their hilarious takes on some of the best and least known fairy tales. Join Bryan Johnson, Brian Quinn and Walt Flanagan with special guest Sunday Jeff as they create a magical world of fantasy and wonder, trolls, living plants, and sinful dwarves. It doesn't get any better than this...or funnier.

    Story

    Well that was a ho-hum 38 minutes of my life. The promise of our love of Downton Abbey explored just didn't happen and in the end, it was a lot of rambling about nothing. Watch Downton, love the Queen and ignore the book.

  • Shatner Rules: Your Key to Understanding the Shatnerverse and the World at Large

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    There were times when I liked this book, and times when I didn’t. I’m not even sure if I want to recommend it or not. This book is only further evidence of Shatner’s view that the world revolves around him, and at times during the book his admission to this “fact” is very tongue-in-cheek hilarious. And while there was some laughter during the book, his so called “World of Shatner” becomes annoying at times; how does one person think so highly of himself?

  • "Qualifies as my most irritating Aud..."

    3 of 3 helpful votes
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I guess people who think Anglophiles are snobbish, social climbing jerks might enjoy this book. Thankfully it was only 48 minutes long so I listened to the end. Certainly not what I expected.


    Any additional comments?

    If you love being an Anglophile then you can give this title a miss.

    Downton Abbey has brought out the Anglophile in American fans of the hit TV series. But Anglophilia has a long history in America. Why are some native-born residents of our Shining City Upon a Hill, where All Men Are Created Equal, seduced by the fluting tones of manor-born privilege? At last, Anglophilia explained - in American, thank you.

    When Lister got drunk, he really got drunk! After celebrating his birthday with a Monopoly-board pub crawl around London, he came to in a burger bar on one of Saturns moons, wearing a lady's pink crimplene hat and a pair of yellow fishing waders, with no money and a passport in the name of "Emily Berkenstein". Joining the Space Corps seemed a good idea.

She's the beloved, hilarious, sharp-witted, pistol-packing grandmother who's watching out and speaking her mind. Now Madea is telling her own story, dishing her memoirs and hard-won, hilarious wisdom in her own inimitable voice (with a little help from her friend Tyler Perry).

President Me hits right at the heart of what makes our country really annoying, and offers a plan to make all of our lives, but mostly Adam’s, much better.

    A masterpiece of satire, this classic has entertained and enlightened readers the world over with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life and foibles from the vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to "Our Father Below". At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C.S. Lewis gives us the correspondence of the worldly-wise old Devil to his nephew, Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man.

Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

Stripped of its arcane language and interminable passages, every book of the Bible is condensed down to its core message, in no more than a few pages each. Written by Mark Russell with cartoons by New Yorker cartoonist Shannon Wheeler, God Is Disappointed in You is a frequently hilarious, often shocking, but always accurate retelling of the Bible, including the parts selectively left out by Sunday School teachers.

Colbert brings his sarcastic charm to a half-hour report, tackling the important issues of the day and telling his guests why their opinions are just plain wrong. Stephen stands for "truthiness" and his American right to copyright that word and claim ownership of it. The author describes this as a simple audiobook from a simple mind: Stephen Colbert's.
