Halloween is here again, and the ghoulish gang at Oliver’s Twisted Bargain Basement Midnight Movie Stoner Friendly Freak Show have risen from their graves to bring you a brand new episode of groovy b-movie badness featuring a streamlined 30 minute edit of the 1962 cult classic The Brain That Wouldn’t Die! Returning to a computer screen near you after a six month hiatus, Oliver wastes no time jumping back into the swing of things with his special brand of horror movie insight and ultra low brow humor. And never has the bar been lowered so low, as Oliver introduces his newest cast-mate, Offensio the Obscene, the world’s filthiest sock puppet/shock comedian, whose every joke ventures into territories so dark that even a jaded former serial killer like our titular host is appalled! Horse Head Ed injects some welcome patriotism into the show with a special appeal to get out the vote, while encouraging fellow Floridians to vote yes this November 4th on Proposition Two, which amends the Sunshine State’s constitution to allow for the use of medicinal marijuana. House band Murdered by ROBOTS are featured with their music videos “Cum Hither” and “Down to the Slaughter”, starring Screaming Mime Theater favorites Mandy Taylor and Dayana Valentino (and the mysterious Half-Man, Half Chicken monstrosity known as “Peckerhead”). And, making special cameo appearances are show friend and horror host extraordinaire Uncle Edward, who opens the show via a specially recorded video message from his basement lair at the Dark Hours Theatre, and Sarasota’s number one burlesque artist, the incredible Cherry Von Topp! Check out the Halloween episode on our YouTube channel at:

Also returning in honor of Halloween is the Murdered by ROBOTS podcast, with a brand new episode titled “Spitting in the Wishing Well”. This episode features some of the group’s most recent recordings, including the raunchy garage band inspired track “Crash Your Car”, a new track titled “Heartbeat” co-written by band-mate Sara G (who shares vocals), and an experimental seven minute plus noise experiment called “Lloyd Mongo and the Syndrome of the Down”. Oliver, Horse Head Ed, and Albert Fish lend their voices to a track titled Oliver’s Song, and the audio version of Horse Head Ed’s voting PSA is also included. Rounding out the episode are a trio of acoustic tracks named “Murgatroyd Man”, “Seven Ways to Sunday”, and “Church Street Whore”. We invite all fans of the band or Oliver’s show to check out this latest episode on ITunes and on Spreaker at:

And finally, Halloween would not have been complete without our third annual photo shoot with the amazing Melissa Dawson, recently named “Hot Chick of the Week” by the Howard Stern Show’s head of security, resident curmudgeon, and acknowledged authority on sexy women Ronnie “The Limo Driver” Mund! This year, Melissa really wowed us with an ultra creepy possessed doll costume that still managed to give us rigor mortis in the shorts, as these pictures can attest to…

When we here at Murdered by ROBOTS are not creating low-fi underground rock or documenting the physical world through our photography and podcasts, we’re eager to explore the unknown, to fathom the great mysteries awaiting us beyond this mortal coil and to question all things that go bump in the night!
Under the tutelage of group founder and lead investigator Jim Tarazewich, an experienced ghost hunter who had his first paranormal experience at the age of 13, fellow band mate Rob and I were fortunate enough to participate in our first investigation this past September at a local bar and restaurant purported to play host to at least one (and possibly three) otherworldly forces. Using high-tech gadgetry including video-surveillance, motion and electromagnetic field detectors, digital voice recorders, and a ghost box (a modified portable radio that continuously scans the AM/FM bands in search of white noise and audio remnants that, in theory, may be manipulated by spiritual forces to communicate messages with the living) we set out to observe and, if possible, make contact with these potential entities. A skeptic by nature,  I participated in this initial assignment with no great expectations. However, after a three and a half hour investigation, I can attest that we did observe and document a number of curious occurrences that I cannot immediately explain nor comfortably ignore. I’ve always prided myself on having an open mind, but the events of that day definitely left me a little more open to new suggestions…
