hollee is my mommy uwu ,

“Aaargh!…”

i was delighted to see this podcast (as i’ve loved all four movies for decades), and i spent the long weekend binging all the episodes available. there are so many fun stories about making the movies. i especially liked the little anecdote about the plane ride with angela visser. costa’s laugh is amazing and makes me smile every time. while i await more podcast episodes, i’m going to watch the documentary and then live in eager anticipation of the next killer tomatoes project. this is so exciting!!

GozerHasCome ,

Finally!

So fun and wonderful to hear the voices of the people behind one of my favorite franchises. I’ve been waiting to see something new to come from these comedy geniuses. The hope for something new coming from the franchise is also exciting. Can’t wait to hear every episode, so far, solid episodes.
