Flopcast 187: Hiding Out in Chickentown

The Flopcast

Flopcast episode 187! Kevin and Kornflake’s ill-conceived trip back through the 80s brings us to 1987! It was the year Debbie Gibson taught us to shake our love — a practice which is illegal in most states these days. Kornflake reminds us of the 1987 debut of the San Francisco-based sitcom Full House, as well as the time that city’s famed Golden Gate Bridge nearly collapsed under the weight of a million hippies. (Historians still debate which was the greater disaster.) Kevin’s 1987 pick is the goofy Jon Cryer movie Hiding Out, which was set in the Boston area and a little creepy, just like us. And if you think we got through 1987 without sneaking into a Pretty Poison concert, you really don’t know us anymore. Also: A festive time was had at Freezepop’s recent EP release show, also featuring Madaila, The Lights Out, and Math the Band. (But no one shook their love, thankfully.)
