Flopcast 378: Here Come the Robots

Flopcast episode 378! For no good reason, every summer we present a Top 4 1/2 List of robots! So it’s time for our eighth annual robot list, and the theme this year is… tiny robots. We have tiny robots from movies, television, music, toys, comic books, and even the real

Flopcast 377: Weird Al Live – Pie History

Flopcast episode 377! It’s summer concert report time, because our white and nerdy hero “Weird Al” Yankovic just came through New England with his “Strings Attached” tour, featuring an entire symphony orchestra! Kornflake and Doornail scored VIP tickets to the New Hampshire show, where they ventured backstage and met Weird

Flopcast 376: Meatballs III – Creep Resort

Flopcast episode 376! The longest summer in history continues, thanks to our ill-conceived project of watching all the horrifying sequels to that classic summer camp comedy, Meatballs. Tonight we’re suffering through Meatballs III: Summer Job, which is even worse than Meatballs II, and is not even set at a summer camp. But it

Flopcast 375: CONvergence 2019 – There’s Always a Jughead

Flopcast episode 375! Kevin and the Mayor of Chickentown have just returned from CONvergence, a wonderful science fiction/fantasy convention in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Flopcast 374: Your Soul Bores Me

Flopcast episode 374! We’re still recovering from last week’s movie night (Summer camp aliens! Run for your lives!), so it’s a simple show this week, catching up on our recent silly activities. Including: Kornflake on the road in search of adventure and/or relaxation; the music of Carbon Leaf; a live

Flopcast 373: Meatballs Part II – Beware Camp Sasquatch

Flopcast episode 373! Last summer, we devoted a Flopcast episode to Meatballs, the Bill Murray summer camp classic. This summer, we’re going to suffer through the horrifying Meatballssequels. (It’s a court-ordered punishment, presumably. Don’t jaywalk in Chickentown, kids.) So for this episode, with Kornflake kicking and screaming in protest, we get started

Flopcast 372: CONvergence Preview – Not a Jinx

Flopcast episode 372! Kevin and the Mayor of Chickentown are preparing for a silly, geeky Fourth of July weekend at CONvergence! It’s one of our favorite conventions, it’s in Minneapolis, and there is a giant blue chicken sculpture nearby. Perfect. Guests at this year’s CONvergence include writers Peter David and

Flopcast 371: God’s Comics 2019 – Earth Fruit Session

Flopcast episode 271! Here at last is our God’s Comics concert review! Every ten years, Kevin gets together with friends Sean and Adam to form God’s Comics, a cover band that only plays Elvis Costello, Men at Work, and The Monkees. In the wake of our legendary 1999 and 2009

Flopcast 370: They Might Be Exaggerated Characters

Flopcast episode 370! It’s no secret that Kevin and Kornflake are longtime fans of Brooklyn’s ambassadors of love, They Might Be Giants. (Their matching Doctor Worm tattoos sort of gave it away.) And since John Linnell (you know, the keyboard/accordion half of the band) has a birthday this week, we’re

Flopcast 369: More From MarsCon – You Ran Away and Bellydanced?

Flopcast episode 369! Here’s an extra-special, extra-weird show we’ve been meaning to unleash for a few weeks. It’s the adventures of Kornflake and Doornail at MarsCon 2019! Yeah, we already discussed MarsCon (the Minnesota science fiction convention which also hosts our beloved Dementia Track of comedy music) back in Flopcast

Flopcast 368: Being a Walking Sponge

Flopcast episode 368! It’s an extra-goofy show, because we’re recording from separate remote locations, AND our recording equipment keeps malfunctioning! But we’re here anyway, just for you. And this random catch-up sort of show features: Joe Cool vs. Mr. Cool; Star Warsburlesque; stand-up comedy with Dana Gould, Bobcat Goldthwait, and friends;

Flopcast 367: Drink Like a Skink

Flopcast episode 367! We’re just days away from the third ever performance of Kevin’s weird cover band, God’s Comics! So this week we have a special interview with our God’s Comics co-conspirator, Sean Fullerton! Kevin and Sean recall their mid-90s glory days at the late great Grind coffeehouse, and how
