The Flopcast exclusive 007 for patreon

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!

Flopcast 465: Here’s Johnny and Johnny and Johnny

Flopcast episode 465! For no good reason, the name “Johnny” is the subject of our latest Top 4 ½ List. (Has it been a slow week around here? What do you think?) We have characters named Johnny from movies, TV, songs, and even more goofy DC comic books. There might

Flopcast 464: The Backs of Life 2 – Brian and Sylvia

Flopcast episode 464! Our examination of every “backdoor pilot” episode of The Facts of Life continues… because we know what the people want. “Brian and Sylvia” was an odd 1981 attempt at a Facts of Life spinoff series. The premise: Tootie’s Aunt Sylvia is a Buffalo TV news anchor, and Brian is her husband,

Flopcast 463: TurkeyVision

Flopcast episode 463! Quick show this week (because we’re exhausted), including: Kornflake at virtual MarsCon; Kornflake and Kevin in a silly new music video (from Power Salad and the great Luke Ski); baseball, blues, and spider movies with William Shatner; old TV talk (Facts of Life, Leave It to Beaver); new

Flopcast 462: Hey, Kids! Goofy Comics!

Flopcast episode 462! For more than 80 years, DC Comics has brought us legends like Wonder Woman and Batman… as well as sillier characters like Kite Man and Bat Mite. There’s a long rich history of goofy characters at DC, and we love them all. So that’s the subject of

Flopcast 461: Michigan J. Frog is Most Displeased

Flopcast episode 461! Twenty years ago, Kevin and Kornflake first visited the great state of Michigan for the comedy music convention Dementia 2001! (Kevin’s band The Sponge Awareness Foundation performed, then quickly returned to their rightful place in total obscurity.) And our guest this week is the organizer of Dementia

Flopcast 460: The Backs of Life 1 – The Girls School

Flopcast episode 460! “The Backs of Life” is our stupid new project for the stupid new year! The plan is to examine each “backdoor pilot” episode of The Facts of Life in excruciating detail. (You know backdoor pilots. It’s when an episode of an existing TV show is used to introduce a

Flopcast 459: This Week in 1990 – The Fake Marcia Era

Flopcast episode 459! Inspired by the discovery of some ancient Sponge Awareness Foundation music, we’re flashing back to the very early 90s — specifically, this week in February 1990. Top 40 radio was dominated by pop/R&B ladies like Janet Jackson, Expose, and (along with our hero MC Skat Kat) Paula

Flopcast 458: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – Still No Bananarama

Flopcast episode 458! Longtime Flopcast listeners (those poor souls) know that every year we examine the new list of nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, even though it’s stupid. But this year’s list is surprisingly strong and diverse, and includes some Flopcast favorites. (Our beloved Go-Go’s are

Flopcast 457: Facts of Life FlopFight Part 2 – Be the Bear

Flopcast episode 457! Let’s wrap up our Facts of Life FlopFight, the tournament that somehow captures all the excitement of a girls’ school and/or a gourmet food shop. Our combatants include the classic four Facts of Life girls (Blair, Jo, Natalie, Tootie), the lesser known Facts of Life girls (if you can possibly consider Molly Ringwald

Flopcast 456: Facts of Life FlopFight Part 1 – Garretts of the Galaxy

Flopcast episode 456! Our latest FlopFight brings us to Peekskill, New York, home of (in ’80s sitcom land, at least) Eastland School for Girls, Langley College, Edna’s Edibles, and Over Our Heads. Yes, this is a Facts of Life FlopFight. We’re taking the good, taking the bad, and putting the Facts of Life cast

Flopcast 455: Young Weird Goofballs

Flopcast episode 455! Let’s flip through another old issue of Dynamite, the magazine all the cool kids of the 70s and 80s faithfully ordered through the school book club. (Ah, the book club… the reason your teacher had to spend half the day counting nickels…) And for no particular reason, we’re

Flopcast 454: Memorial Show Part 2 – And the Rest

Flopcast episode 454! Okay, let’s wrap up our 2020 memorial list, with everyone we lost in the second half of the longest year in history. (As with last week’s show, strong beverages are strongly recommended.) Including (and this isn’t the whole list): Our skeptic hero (James “The Amazing” Randi), professional
