Riverdale s4 e2, spoilers, speculation 

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (comic), very mild spoilers, demonology? 

cw's nancy drew, queer rep, spoilers 

I told my mom my Halloween costume (werewolf Jughead, like my current avatar/icon-thing) and she's like "wow, I can't see Jughead as a werewolf. Let's see, who from Archie would be a good werewolf....Ooh, Veronica!"

"She has her own series where she's a vampire."

"Oh. Yeah, that fits."

Sometimes I forget my mom was the one who gave me my first Archie comic and we might actually share that interest. Hmm.

YAMGBookclub November - Nominations 

Finally read chapter 1 of this comic which I did not know was a webcomic because my local comic shop sells it in paper form in the zine section and that is where I found it!

It is pretty good so far.

Looking for trans voices/opinions.

The next episode we're recording for Spooky Church is on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina chapter 15: Dr Cerberus's House of Horror.

One of the three shorts in this is a pretty horrific body horror type story centered on Theo's dysphoria. I relate to it a lot and think it's good, but I'm just one voice and I'm curious how other people responded to it, especially other trans folks.

Boosts welcome.

Normalize quitting things. It could be school, work, relationships, hobbies, or pretty much anything.

Quitting is often thought of as inherently negative; nobody wants to be called a "quitter". But there are plenty of situations where not only is it reasonable, it's the *best* course of action.

You can drop out college or switch majors when you don't care about the thing you're studying. You can end a relationship when it becomes toxic. You can stop playing a game that you don't enjoy.

REMINDER THAT YOU CAN JUST KINDA PUT SHERLOCK HOLMES IN THINGS. he's public domain so you can just kinda use him wherever. i made him break up with a wizard

Today's Agenda:

Work

Watch my favorite episode of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina to prep for the next podcast recording. (Dr C's House of Horror, yeah that's how far ahead our recording is compared to my editing)

Read Pumpkinheads

fediverse poll #2 (edited), boost ok 

cw nancy drew, fatphobia, personal pet peeves 

Went to watch the new episode of Riverdale and WOW, Nancy Drew episode one is also up!

Exciting.

New episode of Spooky Church is up!

I keep thinking about making a Mastodon account specifically to talk about the podcast but can't decide how/where to do it or if it's a good idea.

So not today.

Finished "My Best Friend's Exorcism!"

It was very good.

(Intended) reading for the rest of October:

Ghosts (Raina Telgemeier)
The Babysitters Coven (Kate Williams)
Season of the Witch (Sarah Rees Brennan)
Sheets (Brenna Thummler)
The Lost Coast (Amy Rose Capetta)
Anya's Ghost (Vera Brosgol)

Is that too much? Will I manage to get through it all? We'll see!

The most painful thing about editing is hearing all the places I just steamrolled right over things my co-host is trying to say.

Not intentionally! We have a somewhat shaky connection and especially in these first episodes before I realized it was happening, there were a *lot* of places where she'd say something but it barely registers and I wasn't hearing it at all so I just kept talking. Yeesh. I have gotten better at pausing to listen! But I sound like such a jerk early on. XD

Goals today:

Edit and upload a podcast episode!

Read some spooky books! Like, probably not finish them. But at least read a little. ("My Best Friend's Exorcism" and "Baby-Sitters Coven")

Playtest my spooky Magic: the Gathering deck for the spooky Magic event at my local game store.
