Flopcast episode 176! Last week Kevin wouldn’t shut up about DragonCon, so this week we’re catching up with Kornflake! As usual she has been busy with silly adventures of her own, including an impromptu trip to Chicago for our friend Sara’s birthday! And to double down on the silliness, Doornail
Live from Chickentown, Kevin and Kornflake sip nasty black coffee and talk about silly & geeky things.
Frequent subjects include: Saturday morning cartoons, Dr. Demento-style funny music, TV and movies of the 1970s and 1980s, comic books, classic video games, and, uh, chickens. (We like chickens.) There’s also lots of convention talk, as we regularly attend DragonCon, MarsCon, and other nerdy gatherings. We’re frightened and confused. Join us!

We’re less than two weeks from our favorite geek event of the whole stupid year: DragonCon. So before we begin the long, treacherous journey from Chickentown to Atlanta (we got a great deal on a MTV LeRun skate-bike), here’s our DragonCon preview show! This year’s guest list includes some of
Summertime is robot time (as all good citizens know here in Chickentown), and so it’s time for our fourth annual robot-themed Top 4 ½ List! This year, in a desperate attempt to keep things interesting, we’re looking specifically at EVIL robots. Evil robots from movies, TV, and video games… evil
It’s another Flopcast convention report, this time from Boston Comic Con! (Official convention motto: “Let’s see how many Harley Quinns we can squish into one building!” It sounds better in the original Latin.) There were comic books aplenty, of course, including at least one amoeba-themed mini-comic. (Say goodbye to the
We have an extra-short, extra-goofy show this week, because Kool and the Gang were right: it’s TOO HOT. (Of course, Kool and the Gang were always right. So bring your good times and your laughter too, or suffer the consequences.) In honor of National Watermelon Day, we recall the good
Kevin and Kornflake are back in Chickentown after a goofy road trip to Vermont, where they found bugs, mud, and other constant reminders that they should never leave the house. But hey, in addition to all that pesky nature, there was a “Weird Al” Yankovic concert! Well played, Vermont. We
Kevin, Kornflake, and The Mayor have abandoned Chickentown to record this week’s show from a secret undisclosed location! But we’ll be back in our regular studio next week (the chickens are getting restless), and all will be revealed. This week, however, we’re looking back at the 4th of July weekend
It’s been 100 weeks since Flopcast episode 66, which was dedicated to V66 (Boston’s own UHF music video channel back in the mid-80s). So for episode 166, we’re doing it again, just in time to celebrate the DVD release of Life on the V, a documentary all about V66! This
Kornflake dreams of a Flopcast road trip to Wayne, Nebraska… possibly because they have a GIANT ANNUAL CHICKEN FESTIVAL!!! Meanwhile Kevin has been creeping around the rock clubs of Boston again, and reports on recent shows by Telelectrix (they have a keyboard fort), Party Bois (they like to drink, they
