    Hollywood Said No! reveals the full-length, never-before-seen scripts for many would-be films, including Bob and David Make a Movie (fleshed out with brand-new storyboards by acclaimed artist Mike Mitchell) and Hooray For America! (a satirical power-house indictment of all that you hold dear).

    What did you love best about Hollywood Said No!?

    i found the full performance pretty hilarious.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I understand why these were not made into movies but that just makes the whole thing more ridiculous.


    What about David Cross and Bob Odenkirk ’s performance did you like?

    the cast are witty as ever, but they left the some of their crackups in the final recording, which i thought was funny.

  • The Old Man and the Sea

    The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway's most enduring works. Told in language of great simplicity and power, it is the story of an old Cuban fisherman, down on his luck, and his supreme ordeal, a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. Here Hemingway recasts, in strikingly contemporary style, the classic theme of courage in the face of defeat, of personal triumph won from loss.

    Dave says: "Truly a Classic"

    Where does The Old Man and the Sea rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    its on up there. its short but thats what you need after some epics.


    Which character – as performed by Donald Sutherland – was your favorite?

    the old man of course...there arent but a few other charaters total. He did a great job delivering hemimgways direct and spare prose.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no, but i will say listening to a fine recording of a classic some 20 something years after i first read the story was a great experience. im glad i was exposed to great literature in school, but its a different experience with a few more miles under my belt.

    Story
    (613)

    Tatooine - a harsh desert world where farmers toil in the heat of two suns while trying to protect themselves and their loved ones from the marauding Tusken Raiders. A backwater planet on the edge of civilized space. And an unlikely place to find a Jedi Master in hiding, or an orphaned infant boy on whose tiny shoulders rests the future of a galaxy.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    i dont know what i was expecting but i didnt really like the story.


    What about Jonathan Davis’s performance did you like?

    I thought his Kenobi was spot on. He did a great job.


    Could you see Kenobi being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    lets hope not.


    Any additional comments?

    if you are a star wars fan you will like aspects of it because its star wars but its not very good.

  • Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Would you listen to Ender's Game again? Why?

    i dont usually but i read this back in the late 80's and decided to listened to it again before the movie came out.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    ender of course.


    Have you listened to any of Stefan Rudnicki and Harlan Ellison ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    i have not.
