Episode #45: The World is Full of Disturbing Books

 

 

TSD-what

This episode Pip and Tee find something to throw bricks at, and something to send flowers too…

00:00 Introduction, and a little commentary

  • Pip tries something different with her voice.
  • Tee tries to keep his board in order
  • A Shared Desk per month is #WINNING

03:37 Diving into the controversy of the RITAs

  • Flavourwire article
  • Bring on the Nazis!
  • Pip’s face tries to explain the face she is making…Tee just thinks it is inappropriate
  • Authors and publishers are allowed to publish whatever they like, but is it in good taste?
  • Pip and Tee wonder where the romance can possibly come from in this situation. Stockholm syndrome doesn’t make for good vibes
  • Has the trend for ‘fixing’ the bad boy gone WAAAYYY too far?
  • Tee comes up with some other suggestions for awful situations that also wouldn’t promote romance.
  • Pretty impossible to give consent in the book’s situation.
  • Tee talks about the Merchant of Venice, another problematic story. It shares the theme of converting to Christianity.
  • The world is full of disturbing books, and Tee is impressed by some of the turn arounds on them.
  • Something similar to this book happened in Schindler’s List.
  • Pip suggests a great way to fix Nazis, the Nuremberg trials.
  • Thankfully it didn’t win…

Episode #39 – wait…what…it’s 2015??

The Shared Desk

We’re back, and we have been doing things honest.

00:00 Introduction and a wee Catch Up

  • Phil Rossi has chosen Tee Morris as his Best Man. Will he be great at that?
  • Pip has crossed the Pacific four times already, so…excuses…
  • Gail Carriger’s latest book Prudence is out.
  • We might not have released any episodes…but we have recorded a bunch.
  • Promise we have two months worth of stuff for us.
  • So hold it to us (WHAT???)
  • Pip had a tough first trip, but all is well now.
  • The second trip was loads of fun, so lets dive in…
  • To Deadlines…
  • Social Media for Writers is now coming Fall, but apparently social media platforms are a moving target
  • The Shared Desk promises to get sensible (again don’t hold it to us)
  • The Diamond Conspiracy is OUT! We love it, and we hope you do to.
  • Dawn’s Early Light wins the RT Reviewers Choice Award
  • Tee makes a choice between moonshine and craft beer…

8:25 To New Zealand

23:07 On to Rotorua

27:39 On to Oamaru

  • Tee and Pip travel to Steampunk Oamaru, and are made to feel welcome by the steampunks of Oamaru. Thanks to Agent Darling.
  • Severely underestimation on how much there was to see and do.
  • Finally above the fold!
  • This is a town that has embraced its past, and then found steampunk
  • Steampunk HQ is art gallery/interactive display/playground/mind-trip
  • Pip and Tee struggle to adequately describe everything they saw. So go see it. Thank you to all those steampunks that came out.
  • Possibility of a new short story.
  • Steampunk play grounds rock!
  • Even Pip got weirded out by driving through literally nowhere…no signal…nothing.
  • Queenstown, the most touristy town in New Zealand with the worst parking. Still cool stuff to do.
  • Pip won’t let Tee jump off a bridge, but finds a soda bar that serves wine.
  • The New Zealand Whisky Collection, in Oamaru.
  • Could be why we came back so relaxed.

41:13 Writers off the Clock. Daredevil

  • Pip and Tee have a lot of TV to catch up on.
  • Violent and will written.
  • Tee admits liking parts of the movie. Pip manages not to run out of the room screaming…
  • Charlie Cox has always been a great actor, but a bad-ass??
  • The cinematography is just beautiful.
  • More realistic fight scenes. Yay!
  • Vincent D’Onofrio is intense but surprisingly touching as Wilson Fisk.
  • Great television needs great writers and great actors.
  • Pip and Tee love how it is tied into the wider MCU

54:07 What lies ahead

  •  We reach the end of a rather large Shared Desk
  • No talking about what’s going within the writing community, unless you buy us a drink somewhere…
  • Tee is the Best Man.
  • Pip heads to RT in a pretty dress to pick up the award.
  • Pip has some panels in Dallas.
