Episode 41 – Creepy Cute

We have creepy and cute characters from this week’s book and a very special tv series. Listen if you dare!

Mel’s Recommendation:



Book: ‘The Ocean At The End Of The Lane’ by Neil Gaiman

  • A short novel narrated by a nameless man who returns to his home town for a funeral and finds himself remembering fantastical memories from his childhood where a girl named Lettie saved him from a number of different evils.
  • From the inside flap: “It is a stirring, terrifying, and elegiac fable as delicate as a butterfly’s wing and as menacing as a knife in the dark.”
  • Mel dubs it #CreepyCute as only Neil Gaiman can do.
  • Additionally, Mr. Gaiman narrates the audiobook, which is fantastic!


Kelly’s Recommendation:

TV Series: ‘Jack Of All Trades’


  • Stars Bruce Campbell and Angela Marie Dotchin and aired in 2000.
  • A tongue-firmly-in-cheek tale of an American Spy fighting the good fight against Napoleon while stationed on a little island in the West Indes. (It’s not quite historically accurate so don’t get your knickers in a knot. ~ M)
  • It’s fun! It’s swashbuckling! IT HAS BRUCE CAMPBELL!
  • If this opening sequence doesn’t bring a small to your face, you have a cold dead heart…..


Social Media Recommendations:

Mel: @DanielGennaoui: Amazing photographs from around the world, including street art.

Kelly: @KOSARTeffects: J Anthony Kosar is the Season 4 winner of Face Off! He makes some outstanding makeup effects.
