Flopcast 289: Jacko and the Bunny – The ESO Network

Flopcast episode 289! In the final installment of our latest ten-part look at the 1980s, we recall the debut of the Energizer Bunny, and review how frightening Top 40 radio had become by 1989. (We’d rather listen to that stupid rabbit pound its little drum than suffer through any more Milli Vanilli.) We also have some listener feedback from last week’s orangutan-themed Top 4 ½ List, including a special message from the great Luke Ski! Then we move on to Thanksgiving topics, because Peppermint Patty just invited herself over and made us do it. In a special Turkeys in the […]

Flopcast 288: The Ape Is Half Full – The ESO Network

Flopcast episode 288! Kornflake is off this week (or is she???), but the Mayor of Chickentown is here to discuss the movies and music of 1988. (At the movies, it was a big year for Uma Thurman, Winona Ryder, and Dennis Farina’s mustache. Meanwhile on the radio, the Escape Club warned us that we were heading for the 90s, and we were in trouble.) Then we celebrate the discovery of a new orangutan species with a quick Top 4 ½ List of our favorite orangutans! Go ahead and sing a round of “Rock Me Doctor Zaius” as we recall some […]

Flopcast 287: Angry Goat – The ESO Network

Our ridiculous ten-episode trip through the 80s continues with a quick look at 1987! For astronomy fans, a supernova was visible in the sky; meanwhile back on Earth, we were dancing to Pet Shop Boys and Swing Out Sister. (The supernova, apparently not a fan of 80s pop, was unimpressed, and just kept on supernoving.) Also: Kevin has a surprise reunion with a couple of old friends and performers from his old open mic night (remember how we all spent the mid-90s in coffee shops?), Sean and Adam Fullerton. And we review the recent Super Megafest convention, where we found […]

Flopcast 286: Problematic Candy Nun – The ESO Network

It’s our goofy Halloween show, but we’re also celebrating the year 1986! Oprah Winfrey’s talk show debuted (but who cares), the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted its first class (which totally should have included Air Supply), and Madonna invited you to make her “True Blue” music video. (Did you do it? She’s probably still waiting.) Meanwhile this week, one friend of ours is participating in a 25-hour charity gaming event, while another friend is opening a new comic book store! (Our friends are crazy and that’s how we like them.) And Kornflake has a 90s music-themed show for […]
