Eclectic Mayhem!!!

It's the final day of the Diary of a Dorkette 500 giveaway and while we wait for the winners to be revealed on the 25th, click the link and listen to something fun and eclectic in the mean time!

Today is the last day to enter the Diary of a Dorkette giveaway. At 11:59 pm central time the contest will end and I will announce the winners for the prize pack sometime on the 25th, so be checking back often for those results. Until then I wanted to share with you all about a new podcast that I am a part of.

Some of you may have noticed the Eclectic Mayhem podcast logo in the upper right corner. Well that is indeed the new podcast I have joined with the super fun Derek from Goodwill Hunting 4 Geeks, Brian from pop pop...! It's Trash Culture and Jason from Nerdy Life of Mine.

Derek and Brian had been working on starting up a podcast of their own for well over a year and while that was unfolding Brian and I joined the Geek Fallout podcast with Derek joining soon after. It was as if everything was written in the stars. I was asked to join them for their podcast on account that we had all been members and friends from the  League of Extraordinary Bloggers. So for a little over a year we had numerous conversations and plans for a podcast project that even resulted in a failed first recording. Eventually fellow Geek Fallout co-host Jason joined us and a new name was created. Thus the Eclectic Mayhem podcast was born.

The Eclectic Mayhem podcast is all about pop culture but with a twist. We want to provide a format that has us asking and answering the kinds of questions that go into further detail for why we like the things we like. This is of course a very simple description, but I adore these guys so getting the chance to talk with them about pop culture is always fun. It's filled with our memories of pop culture related items as well as what has shaped us into the eater of pop culture worlds we are today. There are also lots of bunny trails.

Don't take my word for it, head over to the Eclectic Mayhem main page and listen to our first episode. We are also on iTunes as well. Schedule-wise we are hoping to put out new episodes monthly, and as we speak we are in the process of getting together to record our second episode where we will be going in depth with our views on the Gremlins franchise and the mini monster movies that followed. Basically the last few weeks have consisted of me watching the Ghoulies films, Munchies, and Critters. This is a conversation I am thrilled to have.

I also continue to record with the fantastic gang at the Geek Fallout podcast as well (miss you Erik!) so if my voice doesn't gross you out, you now have two ways of hearing me stutter and butcher the English language while giggling uncontrollably about my love for Jaws 3 in every episode. It's a blast.

Seriously though, check out both shows and let me know what you think of the new Eclectic Mayhem podcast! Be sure to check back on the 25th for the winners of the Diary of a Dorkette giveaway as well! Hope you are all doing well!  


  1. Thanks for the shoutout M! I miss you guys too.

    I've been itching for more Eclectric Mayhem as well (you have no idea how welcoming it is to hear familiar voices when you're in a new place)

    But with all the movie watching you're talking about doing for this next episode I'd probably need at least a month too!

  2. Listening now, the Metroid opening music has already won me over! I'm excited for this podcast, it's right up my alley!
