    Would you listen to Dead Beat again? Why?

    Yeap. This book introduced Butters, a Chicago medical examiner, and a perfect foil to Dresden. Jim Butcher's books are always peppered with humor, but between Butters, the almost full-grown Mouse, and a third plot point (that I will not spoil) this book was one guffaw after another. Past Dresden books have been dark, with Harry just getting pummeled time and time again. Harry picks up some new bruises and sutures in this book too, but the whole tone of the story is lighter.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Beat?

    Avoiding Spoliers: Right towards the end, when Harry finds the perfect weapon against the baddies. I rewound that scene twice before moving on with the rest of the book

  • Tough Sh-t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good

    Take one look at Kevin Smith: He's a balding fatty who wears a size XXL hockey jersey, shorts, and slippers year-round. Not a likely source for life advice. But take a second look at Kevin Smith: He changed filmmaking forever when he was twenty-four with the release of Clerks, and since then has gone on to make nine more profitable movies, runs his own production company, wrote a best-selling graphic novel, and has a beautiful wife and kids. So he must be doing something right.

    Where does Tough Sh-t rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    I was impressed/shocked at how brutally honest and open Kevin Smith is. Yeah, I've seen most of his movies, but that writing was always telling a story about other people. When writing about himself he is, if anything, even less reserved.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kevin Smith is a passionate man, and if you've ever seen a single film of his you know he can write a jaw dropping monologue. It is in the final chapter of 'Tough Sh-t' when Smith's writing becomes the most impassioned, and it is all about his wife and family. He tells you in gory detail that he is the luckiest fat guy on earth when he writes about his wife Jen. It was inspirational to know that love like that can exist.

    Also, he is completely unreserved in making clear the people in his life who have helped, and those who have been complete d-bags, dedicating two chapters to Bruce Willis and how incredibly difficult and damaging it was to work with the star of Die Hard.


    Have you listened to any of Kevin Smith???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not other than his movies
