Flopcast 319: Non-Gong Business

The Flopcast

Flopcast episode 319! Are you ready for the summer? Not us… we are not exactly “outdoorsy” around here. But we do know how to hide inside with iced coffee, pizza pie, and a classic summer movie. So this week we’re watching Meatballs, the beloved 1979 summer camp comedy starring Chris Makepeace (you know Chris from Mazes and Monsters) and Bill Murray (you know Bill from Ghostbusters II). Kornflake has never seen Meatballsbefore, so it’s time for her to learn about Wudy the Wabbit, the Mystery Meat Contest, the disco hit “Makin’ It,” the weird sequels, and the North Star CIT sing-along (which has been trapped in our brains for decades). The conversation also drifts over to Caddyshack (and the wonderful new book about Caddyshack)… because it just had to. Plus: Despite a general avoidance of nature, Kevin went to Vermont and found two turtles, one turkey, and one folk singer (that would be Dar Williams). And we’re celebrating the Day of the Gong, just as Chuck Barris would have wanted. So join us! Or don’t! Because as the movie taught us… it just doesn’t matter.
