Here's an odd little show for you -- Kornflake suggested a Top 4 1/2 List of hairdos! Of course this means a trip back to the 70s and 80s (not exactly unfamiliar territory for The Flopcast), when hair was big and/or crazy, and threatened to destroy us all. We'll look at New wave singers, cartoon bears, Mr. T (but of course)... and the horrifying hair history of the Brady family. We also turn to Siri for some answers, and learn that some robots just can't take a compliment.

It's a music-themed episode this week, as Kevin and Kornflake discuss recent shows by Jim's Big Ego (featuring an onstage appearance by Kornflake), The Aquabats (featuring a member of The Cars, and a giant chicken), and a special benefit concert for Keytar Bear (featuring a brass band, a didgeridoo, Freezepop, and a bear playing a keytar). Then we present an interview with Rhode Island-based singer/songwriter Jacob Haller! Topics include robots, kittens, weird dreams about Cher, and an exploding whale. Also: National Waitstaff Day is this week. So leave a big tip, even if you didn't order the exploding whale.

Happy 75th Birthday to Batman! This week Kevin and Kornflake look back at the Caped Crusader's first 75 years, including: Bat-Mite (Batman's Great Gazoo-style imp), Batwoman (who fought crime using jewelry and makeup, because, you know, she was a girl), and Ace the Bat-Hound (a dog with a mask)! And don't forget Cesar Romero's mustache! Or the time Batman met Weird Al! Also: We introduce a new superhero of our own (lobster-themed, of course), and we celebrate Sea Monkey Day (because we like fooling children). This show is such a Bat-tacular (as Kornflake calls it) that you'll want to display a giant penny in your living room.

Kornflake learns that she has some National Whatever Day competition; we review the final nominees for this year's Logan Awards for Excellence in Comedy Music (to be presented at FumpFest!); we meet a mysterious lobster named Carmen; Kevin attends the premiere of Life on the V, the new documentary about Boston's mid-80s music video channel, V66; and speaking of music videos, your Flopcast hosts pop up in a silly new video, which may or may not feature a dancing cartoon corned beef and cabbage.
