The Thing Read-Along Record Book

Yes, it’s here, folks!  My super-secret audio project has finally been released.  As you can see by the title of this post, it is an original read-along record book of John Carpenter’s The Thing.

Long story short, I love those old record books that were popular in the 1970s and 80s, but they were always made primarily for kid’s movies, TV shows, and comic books.  But that means a lot of great films that came out during that time period never got the full record book treatment.

So, along with some of my geeky friends, I decided to correct this oversight, and am now working on read-along record books for the films that never got them in the first place.  My first choice was John Carpenter’s classic 1982 cult hit, The Thing.

This is also an opportunity to announce my new podcast, The Space Monkey X Audio Workshop, hosted over at  You can read more about The Thing record book and the new podcast over there.

Here’s a direct link to The Thing podcast episode.  Don’t forget to download the PDF record book, too!

Whew.  That feels better.

So check back throughout February for more fun stuff to read, see, and hear.

Stitcher Radio Recommends…

When You Hear This Sound!


In a recent post on their website, the popular podcast app recommended listeners of one of my favorite podcasts, Welcome to Night Vale, should also check out Episode 10 of my show, titled Doctor Who and the Pescatons.

I wish I could say that it was my excellent, witty writing that would make Night Valians check out the show, but chances are the crazy tale of fishmen attacking London would be the main draw.  Either way, here’s hoping the show can get a little push from the exposure.

Thanks to Stitcher Radio for their support!
