Flopcast

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 164: Sexy as a Disco Mummy

Kevin and Kornflake have one more item of business to discuss from FuMPFeST, as Kevin reveals that in the middle of this funny music convention, he sneaked off to a whole other convention! This was Mego Meet, a show dedicated to the Mego superhero dolls (sorry, action figures) of the

Flopcast 163: FuMPFeST 2015 Part 2 – My Sweater Smells Like Ian

Kevin and Kornflake are back in Chickentown, but can’t stop screaming about FuMPFeST! This week we review our whole crazy weekend at this funny music convention in Wheeling, Illinois (a town Kornflake would visit just to have breakfast). Highlights include: Kornflake’s water breaking (what?), an Inspector Gadget chorus, Kenny Rogers-themed

Flopcast 162: FuMPFeST 2015 Part 1 – Speaking of Nakedness

Kevin and Kornflake are back in Wheeling, Illinois for the second annual FuMPFeST comedy music convention! And we’re joined by our regular giggling, coffee-spilling correspondent, Doornail!

Flopcast 161: Lower Your Goonie Standards

Kevin and Kornflake discuss a new documentary featuring Big Bird, a new Kickstarter campaign for The Perhapanauts (get a voicemail message from a chupacabra!), new music from Dar Williams and Anaria, and old music from John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band. Also: Freezepop, Duran Duran, Petty Morals, the Somerville

Flopcast 160: Floploose

Most scientists agree that Kevin is tragically obsessed with the classic 1984 movie Footloose. Kornflake, however, had never actually seen it! Thus our mission was clear — we had to watch Footloose, and then try to make sense of it all. So this week, we discuss the Footloose cast (which was completely

Flopcast 159: Diners, Steampunks, and Swords

We have quite a mixed bag (but not a “What’s in the Bag?”) of silly topics this week. You’ll learn why Kornflake is totally obsessed with Highlander, how to look insane when you see the new Avengers movie, how to stare creepily at folk singers through a window, and how

Flopcast 158: Brush with Dave

It’s the end of an era in late night TV, as David Letterman wraps up 33 years of stupid pets and guys under the seats. So this week, we’re looking back on how we discovered Dave in the 80s, how he influenced Kevin’s goofy band, and how he inspired Kornflake

Flopcast 157: Shark-Jumping Marshmallows

Kevin and Kornflake are frightened and confused by creepy leprechauns; The Sponge Awareness Foundation is crushed by falling drunk people at a They Might Be Giants concert; Jay Leno is mesmerized by our Leave It to Beaver t-shirt; we prepare to pitch a gritty crime drama to HBO (it’s about

Flopcast 156: Super Megafest – Between a Rock and a Ponch Place

Plus:

Flopcast 155: Betty, Please

It’s been too long since we presented a good old fashioned ridiculous Flopcast Top 4 ½ List… and so this week, we bring you a Betty list. (Hey, we take that “ridiculous” part pretty seriously.) We’re listing our favorite Betty cartoon characters (from the Stone Age and beyond), our favorite

Flopcast 154: Heap Watch

Our report from the South Coast Toy and Comic Show includes: silly cat comics; a very tempting Monster Squad board game; the stars of Buck Rogers, Clerks, and The Last Dragon; and our dream of unleashing the New England Brethren of Pirates on Fish Island. Also: comedian Marc Maron (whose

Flopcast 153: Blah Blah Blah SHAZAM!

According to the Elders, it’s time to celebrate 75 years of Captain Marvel! Yes, young Billy Batson has been screaming “Shazam!” and fighting crime (and Superman’s lawyers) as Captain Marvel since 1940. This week we’ll look at the comic books, the movie serials, the cartoons, and of course, the live
