    In the wake of updating technology, The Residents must leave behind projects like their two CD ROM games Freak Show and Bad Day on the Midway However, lead singer of The Residents Randy Rose salvages his masterpiece of a game Bad Day by transferring its contents into a short one day read The result is a wacky and weird surrealist adventure involving tax returns, a plague, a serial killer and a cast of odd characters Although it leaves out many of the major plot points of the original game, it is still a quintessential landmark for any Residents fan to read and a perfect adaptation straight from the fountainhead of all The Residents material It does nothing particularly wrong, and does a good job of explaining the feel of the CD ROM game If you re not a Residents fan, or haven t played the game, it s going to be a strange ride into the midway we Residents fans all know and love It s because of this that I m rating the book at 4.5 instead of a whole 5 stars.

    Knowing and loving both the Residents ouevre and having extensively played the game on which this novelization is based, I have mixed feelings about this book Randy s prose is childish, his descriptions are vague or lazy, and the characterizations are paper thin His way of conveying action is mostly through dialogue, having characters explain what they are doing in speech I am now putting my last cartidges into this rifle That is quite lame.One of the most interesting features of the game was the internal monologue of each character presented as random thoughts in the lower side of the screen This is sorely missing in the book And some added subplots not present in the game Tebo, Cheeseburger Billy, Dagmar vs the IRS man are added seemingly for the shock value, while the conclusion is so trite as to make me scream in disgust.More than a novel this feels like a rough sketch of a film treatment not worthy of the Residents name Randy sure is a great writer of songs and while some of the band s storytelling albums are clearly owed to the same pen or dictaphone they are compelling than this A good novelist he is not, as these flaws are shared by The Brickeaters Overall this seems like a missed opportunity to create a novel around some fantastic ideas The game is far superior.

    A fun thrilling addition to Residential canon, based on best selling early 90 s CD ROM game of same name Follow intertwining threads of several different characters at a rundown carnival Midway in the midst of a plague outbreak and a coming storm and electrical fire.

    This adaptation of The Residents CD ROM of the se name remains every bit as much fun as its source material Dark, funny and as weird as you could imagine a bad day on the midway could be
