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
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!

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
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
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
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!

Also: Freezepop, Duran Duran, Petty Morals, the Somerville
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
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
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
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
