Keli and Alice kick off the second season of SnarkNotes by hanging out in a blanket fort! (Clearly the more things change, the more things stay the same.) Join them as they dive into "Cat Person", a short story by Kristen Roupenian that details the perils of dating in a world full of aggressive texts and unwanted forehead kisses.
Most people spend the night of their 10 year high school reunion catching up with old classmates. Alice and Keli have never been most people.
Hey, hey! You, you! Have you heard about Melissa? Keli walks us through a few of her favorite conspiracy theories. Alice does her best to keep up, but gets distracted by her love of Sk8er Boi. Which is basically a perfect song. He was a boy, she was a girl. Can I make it any more obvious?
What does a large inflatable lobster have to do with multi-platinum singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran? Listen to this episode of SnarkNotes to find out! Self-professed "Sheerios", Keli and Alice discuss their favorite Ed Sheeran songs and explain the many, many reasons he should want to be their friend.
The only thing better than a ship is a crack ship. Keli and Alice follow-up their first SnarkNotes short with an in-depth look at crack ships (i.e. a relationship that is so insane, it must be on crack). The internet is truly a dark and wonderful place.
It’s a tale as old as time: girl meets troll bear, household objects start to sing, and Stockholm Syndrome ensues. Keli and Alice are avid Disney fans with mixed feelings about Beauty and the Beast. On the one hand, who doesn’t love a bookish heroine who wants adventures in the great wide somewhere? On the other, does she have to be such a brat? Spoiler: They all live happily ever after. Except for Gaston. And maybe Chip.
In an effort to release more content with greater regularity, Keli and Alice have decided to publish some shorter, bonus content. In the first SnarkNotes Short they explain the art of shipping and discuss the popular Remus / Lupin (or WolfStar) ship.
Keli and Alice were sensitive children who eventually grew and matured into neurotic adults. In this episode they each recount four books or movies that messed with their young, fragile minds – sometimes scarring them for life. In this episode they’ll explain how almost anything – from green ribbons, to songs about cavemen, to Muppets – can be scary. Mild spoilers related to stories you probably don’t care about.
O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou the absolute worst? Let us count the ways. In this SnarkNotes episode, Keli and Alice take the time to discuss heroes (and couples) that the general public romanticizes even though they really shouldn’t. They argue that the romantic heroes of classic literature are seriously lacking. Romeo is a player. Healthcliff is a sociopath. Gatsby isn't exactly "great". All in all, a stand up group of guys. Spoiler warning. This episode touches on major plot points in Romeo & Juliet, Wuthering Heights, and the Great Gatsby. (You’ll never guess how Romeo & Juliet ends. Minds will be blown.)
