- This is the end...
As it has been said "All good things must come to an end", in this case, it's just us. We've been on a hiatus for quite a while now, and have had discussions on where the show is going, what our plans are and have come to a decision together. After 10 years we're calling it, and retiring the show. This decision didn't come easy, when you do something weekly for ten years suddenly stopping is quite a change.
Mike, Patrick, Joel and Josh want to thank all the listeners we've had over the last year. When we started this in 2013 it was a fun thing for us to get together for and posting the shows was a bit of "We'll see if anyone listens". Well, you did, and we have loved hearing from all of you that shouted back at us, many of you have become part of our daily conversations on and off the podcast.
Which brings us to the "what next" part of things. We're shutting down our social medias, since we won't be there to respond to anything. If you'd like to keep in touch, our Discord (accessible at the link below) is where we will be. Over the years it's gone from us just posting new shows to discussion on everything from new TV and Movies, Drinks and traveling, to just cute stuff and trivia. Join us there, it's a good time.
As for the guys? They've all got upcoming ideas and plans, so here's a quick rundown and how to keep in touch with them!
Mike - @thejavakat
He's currently on Meeples & Wine, a podcast about tabletop gaming for married couples, which reviews games and samples a new bottle of wine every show! You can find him and his lovely wife Suzanne at https://podcast.show/meeplesandwine/ to listen and follow!
Patrick - @PWhaley12
The Talent is taking some downtime to recharge his batteries. While he doesn't have a show currently in the works, things are always happening, so there's no guarantee that this is the last you've heard from him!
Joel - @joelhappykpants
His solo show The Sunshine Happy Kpants Hour is still rolling on Talkshoe, you can find it HERE. Most recently he and his ghoulish wife have started the Newlydeads, if you love the horror of Halloween, and dig on slasher flicks, you'll need to dig them up at https://thenewlydeads.com/
Josh - @DocStout
Josh has never been at a shortage of plans. He's taking a moment to himself, getting his tabletop RPG/board gaming set along with the catalog of games on Steam he's playing lined up and he will be back. He's got ideas for the future so definitely follow him above to find out what's in store!
As always, it's been fun, and thanks for listening!22m | Jan 21, 2023

We're watching the 1986 "Trick or Treat" and 2007's "Trick or Treat" anthology of terrors that includes Pumkinhead Sam, that little burlap headed nightmare. It's a convoluted mess of a heavy-metal curses, werewolf packs, zombie curses and more! This show originally posted November 2014!

- When A Stranger Calls: 1979 vs 2006"Have you checked the children?" Just the phrase makes your eye twitch a little. In the days before Creepypasta, there were urban legends passed down by word of mouth. The guys at '40 Going On 14' remember the one this movie is based on, and it's a doozy. However, what nobody told us is that Charles Durning was going to be our hero. Or that 75% of the film adaptation would be the journey of a man in search of Colleen Dewhurst. Who knew? In 2006 they remade this little terrifying tale. Did they crank up the crank calling chaos or did they get a dial tone? Why is Roy from the office not more helpful? Why didn't Agent Coulson just call on S.H.I.E.L.D.? You'll have to face your fears and find out in this final fantastic free for all known as OctoBoo!

- The Omen – 1976’s Gregory Peck vs 2006’s Liev SchreiberWe're back! It's time for 'OctoBoo III: The Omening'. We've summoned that little hellraiser, Damien, for this episode complete with hellhounds, flying nannies and Latin chanting! If you only check out one episode of '40 Going On 14' this year, make it this one. We promise its a scream. If not, heads are gonna roll. Join Mike, Pat, Joel and Josh, as well as Gregory Peck, Liev Schreiber and a legion of others as we talk about 'The Omen'! Hoo, boy does this film have some lore behind it, between lightning strikes, bird related airplane crashes, animal attacks and IRA bombings it's a thing that this even was released. If you'd like to leave us a voicemail to read on the air you can send it through Speakpipe here! https://www.speakpipe.com/40GoingOn141h 24m | Oct 23, 2022
- Dahmer 2002 vs 2022 Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer StoryIt's week two of OctoBoo and we're bringing in the big guns! For this new installment, we're discussing one of the most notorious serial killers in history, Jeffery Dahmer. In 2002, Jeremy Renner, cooked up a rather delicious performance in his direct to video junk food film simply called 'Dahmer'. In 2022, Ryan Murphy created a 10 episode smörgåsbord of a show with Evan Peters taking on the culinary curiosities of Jeffery Dahmer in 'Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story' on Netflix. While not a monster in the traditional sense, these true tales of terror are heinous and horrific. Turn out the lights and load up on the snacks, as we're going to satisfy all of your podcast cravings as we scare up another OctoBoo episode.1h 28m | Oct 16, 2022

Well, you'll have to listen to find out!1h 1m | Oct 12, 2022
- Hocus Pocus 1993 vs 2022, The Sanderson Sisters fly again!OctoBoo is upon us! In this first week of the most wonderful time of the year, we're enjoying a little 'Hocus Pocus'. The Sanderson Sisters have cast a spell over the hearts and minds of millions. Played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy, they're gleefully evil but a tad bit ignorant. After years of waiting, Disney finally made a sequel to this Halloween classic. Mike, Pat, Joel and Josh are hopping on their respective brooms and heading into the night to discuss if it was worth the wait. Is there still magic in that old vacuum cleaner? Will Billy be back? Why Walgreens and no CVS? This OctoBoo is off to a scary start with these witchy women. Toss all that in, along with questions like "Who remembers "Weak" by SWV? (I've watched the vid, and still have no recollection of this - Mike) Does "Tanga" by Prudencio Mario Bauzá Cárdenas make you want to dance? (Yes.) and what the heck was "Weinerville"?

- Elvis Biopics! 1979’s Kurt Russell vs 2022’s Austin ButlerTime to put your hair in a pompadour, get that curl in your lip, get into your best sequined jumpsuit and get your hips movin' because today we watch #Elvis! These two films couldn't be more different and we'll tell you why. Not too mention revealing our favorite hits of the King. From the 1979 made for TV Elvis!, directed by John Carpenter and starring Kurt Russell as the titular King of Rock & Roll, to the 2022 Baz Luhrman Austin Butler version told through the eyes of Colonel Tom Parker (played by Tom Hanks). So we got more Elvis than we know what to do with this week! Are you ready for some fantastic music and killer hair? The '40 Going On 14' boys are ready to rock, even though Elvis has left the building. Pair that up with some listener email, discussion on where all of our listeners are from #InternationalPodcastDay and of course SUPERTRAIN and you've got a hunka-hunka burning pod!1h 19m | Sep 30, 2022
- Teen Revenge 2 – Cruel Intentions vs Do Revenge!Revenge is a dish best served cold or with a side of mushrooms. Listener Nikki suggested we talk about the 1999 teen classic, 'Cruel Intentions' and compare it to the brand new release from Netflix, 'Do Revenge'. We're coming out from hiding under the table, as the spiders are finally going away, to discuss these rich kid revenge stories. We couldn't say no when we realized that Sarah Michelle Gellar couldn't say no and was in both projects. Somebody is going to pay for the things we say in this show. Let's just hope that we don't end up the same way as Sebastian and try and stop a speeding car with our face. Join us this week as we meander through the past, finding out about Joel's love of #BronskiBeat old #Nickelodeon GaS, the Pet Shop Boys with Dusty Springfield and of course Haile Gebrselassie. We add another #Revenge movie show, to go on the wall with our #Heathers vs #MeanGirls show! #dorevenge #CruelIntentions You can now find us on the Fountain Podcast app on Apple and Android!1h 14m | Sep 23, 2022
- Pinocchio! Disney’s 1940 version vs the 2022 Remake!I'm a real boy! Not yet. Before you can reach your goal, you first have to watch the original 1940 '#Pinocchio' and the Tom Hanks re-telling from 2022. Only after this can you achieve your real-boyness. At least that's what the blue fairy told us. However, we think she may be just be wanting to sell us an extended car warranty. The "gross" Jiminy Cricket Light up your cigars and grab a monster glass of beer, as we're going full donkey on this episode. To be honest, this may be our best episode ever, about the greatest films ever made! (He means Pinocchio and the Emperor of the Night!) Wait, what do you mean that my nose is growing? If you like the show don't forget to share it! You can find us on Blubrry, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, The Podcast Index and Fountain!

- Dirty Dancing, Which Johnny Castle Comes Out On Top? 1987 vs 2017Once upon a time there was a corner. In that corner was Johnny Castle. Why was Johnny in that corner? Because nobody puts Baby Houseman there! That's right, we're dancing all dirty-like as we grab Patrick Swayze and Abigail Breslin and spin them around the floor like we just buffered it clean. While 'Dirty Dancing' may be a classic piece of nostalgia, the made for TV film may just be a piece of something else. Turn up that amazing soundtrack and pull out your authentic, autographed Jennifer Grey cardboard standup and let's dance like there's no tomorrow. This show may just be the reason that you've had the time of your life.... or it may be why you'll never look at Fred Armisen and Eleanor Bergstein the same way again.
