It’s been a big week for us at Murdered by ROBOTS. Since it’s premiere just over a week ago, our web series Oliver’s Twisted Bargain Basement Midnight Movie Stoner Friendly Freak Show has raked up a respectable 515 views from postings on multiple sites, with the lion’s share of hits coming, hysterically, from our posting on the free adult tube service Porn Hub (so the actual length of each individual view is, admittedly, likely to be fairly low – one can only anticipate the colorful comments that may one day be left by frustrated porn surfers desperate to complete a mission who find our program to be, put politely, less than “mission”-worthy!).  And our show has been given the official thumbs up by one of our very favorite horror-hosts, It Came from the Basement’s  mysterious Uncle Edward, the Fez wearing professor phantasm behind Dark Hours Theatre’s  epic sci-fi serial Adventures of Galactic Command  and Uncle Edward’s Trailer-Rama, both available on YouTube.

   In other news, Murdered by ROBOTS posted a brand new music video this week for our song “Dumpster Baby“, subtitled “The Birth of Oliver“, starring Horse Head Ed and the titular Oliver in semi-autobiographical roles as adopted-father and son. Also heavily featured are Screaming Mime Theater favorites Rima Jean and Tiffani Cruz, as well as the ever elusive Peckerhead  (in a scene stealing performance!). Head Lump Rob Demperio called it “Difficult. I love it.”

   Rounding out this week’s broadcasting is Two Guys Watching Porn’s 50th (!) episode, titled The Girl with the K-Shaped Cornhole. Picking up where their last episode ended, hosts Rob and Chris continue to shamelessly plug their new internet TV show and discuss the scandalous fate of McGruff the Crime Dog.

In the latest episode of Two Guys Watching Porn, Chris and Rob announce the premiere of their network’s new Internet TV show and discuss a recent incident in a Florida movie theater in which a retired police officer shot and killed a fellow moviegoer for texting during the coming attractions. This leads Chris to ponder other horrible ways to meet your maker and to advocate paving the Everglades. Trash TV talk and porno-horror stories round these latest discussions.  Also featured in this episode’s opener is Head Lump Rob Demperio’s shout-out to house band Murdered by ROBOTS, whose song Making Love to My Lunchmeat was featured on the 02/11/14 broadcast of 96.5 WSLR’s Lumpytunes!

OLIVER'S TWISTED BARGAIN BASEMENT MIDNIGHT MOVIE STONER FRIENDLY FREAK SHOW

   Hot on the heels of Rob’s return, Screaming Mime Theater is proud to unleash it’s latest, most jaded creation… A congo-line of deprivation one whole week in the making… Oliver’s Twisted Bargain Basement Midnight Movie Stoner Friendly Freak Show!  With a title so long even the late Linda Lovelace would call it “a mouthful”, and a budget so small starving children in Africa should start sending us money, this homage to cheesy b-movie creature feature horror shows hopes to transport it’s viewers back to those glorious pre-cable days before infomercials and 24 hour broadcasting, when the last stop on the cathode ray highway was the late, late movie! Usually they were locally taped public access type productions, featuring amateur actors dressed in shoddy Frankenstein’s monster costumes in dollar store furnished laboratories, or Dracula clones reciting corny one-liners from inside their cardboard coffins as dry ice fog obscures styr0foam tombstones. They’d perform loosely scripted comic bits between commercial breaks for notoriously awful movies, with titles like The Crawling Eye and The Screaming Skull; flicks that needed a little extra nudge to trick viewers into watching them for the umpteenth time. But the movies themselves were never really the point. It was the camaraderie we in the audience felt with these misplaced thespians, who did their very best week after week to make something entertaining out of the unwatchable. The fun came not from the feature presentation, but from these often unsung heroes of the UHF void who cleverly polished cinematic turds and somehow convinced a loyal few to come back for seconds and thirds.
   Every nightmare needs a top-rate ghoul, and who better to host our fledgling creep show than the Screaming Mime Theater’s resident serial killer, Oliver? Together with his cast of cohorts including Two Guys Watching Porn’s dog reporter Shadow Stevens, show announcer Albert Fish (who sounds remarkably like TGWP’s producer Barry Schwartzenhymen), and Oliver’s chemically dependent sidekick, Horse Head Ed, the show promises to, at the very least, keep you scratching your head as this train wreck occurs before your very eyes! It’s a show that features everything future fucktards could hope for: rubber masks, bad CGI, Oedipal complexes, drug references, and action figure nudity! And only the best of the worst horror, sci-fi, and exploitation available… (in the Public Domain)…
   Oliver’s Twisted Bargain Basement Midnight Movie Stoner Friendly Freak Showis the developmentally challenged brainchild of that demented duo behind Two Guys Watching Porn. Episode One pays tribute to the Queen of all Pinups, Bettie Page, and features footage from her final feature film performance in the 1955 Irving Klaw directed burlesque documentary Teaserama.

There are some questions for which answers may never truly be known, eternal mysteries that have haunted man since his first ancestors gazed upon the heavens and wondered  “are we alone in the Universe?”,  “is there life after death?” , “what, if anything, existed before the Big Bang?” and “how much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?”.  Well, as of last Saturday, at least one such puzzle has  been solved, the burning question on all of our  minds: “What the fuck happened to Rob?”…

It is with great excitement and considerable relief that I announce that Rob, like the Jedi and Jesus before him, has returned. Not, however, a brief two days later like the aforementioned Lord and Savior but, instead,  following a two and a half month mysterious limbo. But what do you expect? One of them is the son of God and the other’s, well, Rob. And whereas Jesus returned with the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven, Rob comes back with nothing more than horror stories of hoarding and of elderly relatives half eaten by cats!

All this and more is the subject of the long awaited brand new episode of Two Guys Watching Porn titled “Popeye and the Resurrection“.  A special shout out is given to a trio of confirmed listeners and life advice is lovingly dispensed by hosts Rob and Chris, who waste little time returning to their old shenanigans.

   In other news, Murdered by ROBOTS was once again honored to have their track “Dumpster Baby” featured on the latest (02/04/14) broadcast of 96.5 WSLR’s Lumpytunes! , on a playlist that featured such icons of the counterculture as William S. Burroughs and Cheech and Chong! Our eternal thanks goes out to the Head Lump Rob Demperio for including us in another one of his weekly mosh ups of madness, and for mentioning us on air, albeit unintentionally, during his 01/21/14 broadcast when he momentarily confused our group with the similarly named musical comedy troupe and experimental noise act, Captured! By Robots, whose track he’d just played. Oh, and while we’re shamelessly honking our own horn, Murdered by ROBOTS was also included in the special (12/03/13) John and Yoko themed edition of Lumpytunes! which featured an extended set of our songs made up of “If I Only Had Some Shame“, “Porcupine Vagina/Nevermind Love” and our signature tune “Snotrocket“. Intentionally or otherwise, we’re always thrilled to hear our name spoken over the airwaves!
For those of you in the Sarasota/Bradenton, Florida area, check out Lumpytunes! every Tuesday night/Wednesday morning from 11:00pm-01:00am on 96.5 WSLR or listen online at www.WSLR.org . And like it on Facebook at www.facebook.com/lumpytunes .
