Flopcast episode 250! Kevin returns to his old stomping grounds of Woonsocket, Rhode Island for a frighteningly close encounter with 1980s pop icon (and our personal hair hero) Richard Marx. (Yes, he was right there waiting, and yes, we should’ve known better… yikes, these Richard Marx references are becoming something of a hazard… ’twas a great concert nevertheless.) Not knowing when to quit, Kevin then makes a second visit to Rhode Island, this time to see The Mads (that is, Mystery Science Theater 3000’s Frank and Trace, who brought along a goofy old movie, believe it or not). And along the way, we just might run into a member of our favorite synthpop band, and discover the Golden Chicken award. Meanwhile, Kornflake has her latest podcast recommendation (featuring science, and grit, and barking people), and teaches us about Single Tasking Day. (Single tasking is way more effective than multi-tasking — especially if, like us, you lack the wisdom of a wombat.)
Cigar Nerds Podcast Episode 63: Alice in Zombieland. Who’s ready for an Apocalypse? Break out the umbrellas cause we are going back to Racoon City. This week we are talking about the Resident Evil film series and review the latest installment, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.

The search for the Key to Time takes the ESW crew to Zenda, er, Tara. Mike, Mike, Jen, and Mary see if Mary Tamm playing a total of four parts can equal over half of Tom’s screen time in this story. Plus, we preview some upcoming local Doctor Who themed conventions.

If there’s one thing LEGO Batman loves more than beating up bad guys, saving the city, chowing down on lobster thermidor, and shredding the guitar, it’s listening to folks talk about how awesome he is. So, he should love hearing Mike, Mike, Alex, and Ashley review his new solo movie. Plus, Marten Jallad joins us to talk up Joelanta, The Great Atlanta Toy Show. All this, along with the usual Rants, Raves, Geek Girl’s Take, Khan Report, and Shout Outs!

Flopcast episode 249! In honor of Champion Crab Races Day, we recall weird pet hermit crabs, weird comic book ads for Crazy Crabs, and weird late night calls for crab rangoon. And to keep a weird animal theme running through the whole show, we also have a lobster-inspired round of “What’s in the Bag,” and Kornflake reports on her visit to Zoo Creatures in Plaistow, New Hampshire. Stop by and make friends with the goats, eels, snakes, skinks, a turkey, and yes, a kookaburra. (A little touch of Australia in the Granite State; Air Supply would be so proud.)
Hey folks, love is in the air and in the ring as the roundtable crew take a look at couples in the ring. That’s right, with Valentine’s day right around the corner we wanted to take a look at the many great and not so great couples that wrestling has presented over the many years. Of course as always John, Richard, and Jonathan are in on the discussion as the one and only Joe Crowe joins in on a fun discussion. They talk everything from, of course, the first couple of professional wrestling Macho Man & Miss Elizabeth all the way to Dolph & Vickie while even Chuck & Billy get a mention.

They say the first time ain’t the greatest, but in the case of some movie franchises, two films is one film too many. Mike, Mike, Lacee, and Alex list some sequels that were so bad, they diminished the original. Plus, Jason and Rita transmit some very exciting news about their Seekers of the Lost Worlds project and Robert Young chats up the SC Comicon! All this, along with the usual Rants, Raves, Geek Girl’s Take, Khan Report, and Shout Outs!

Cigar Nerds Podcast Episode 62: Return of xXx. Welcome to the Xander Zone. This week we get extreme and take a look at the Triple X film series and review the latest installment, xXx The Return of Xander Cage. Who’s the beter X, Vin Diesel or Ice Cube? In Science we take a look at future predictions, robot bats, a new moon, and other rocks from space. In News we complain about super bowl results and talk about new trailers for Guardians of the Galaxy, Ghost in the Machine, Stranger Things 2, John WIck 2, Fate of the Furious, and the Pirates of the Caribbean. We also smoke the new Rocky Patel Dark Dominican, and review the Victory Anniversary XX.
Flopcast episode 248! It’s time to review our long crazy day at the Boston Women’s March! (The ride into the city was crazy enough; all 175,000 marchers squished into the same subway car, or so it seemed…) Lots more friends of the Flopcast were out that day too, both in Boston and throughout the world… but the only familiar face we found in the crowd was Keytar Bear. (A bear playing a keytar does tend to stand out…) And in an effort to be completely exhausted, we also attended the ACLU benefit after-party, with awesome performances by Stars Like Ours, Carissa Johnson, and Petty Morals. (Did the whole night end with an appropriate George Michael cover? But of course.) Plus: Listener feedback from last week’s Top 4 ½ List of doctors! (Yikes, we missed some big ones.) And Kornflake reminds us to celebrate Plimsoll Line Day, because these may not be good times, but you still have to keep your head above water. (See, no matter how bad things get, we’ll just keep making sitcom references…)
