Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Two Guys Watching Porn returns with a brand new episode of half-witted deviance titled “Casey Anthony, Aquamom and Rubber Dolls”, in which hosts Rob and Chris discuss topics ranging from Real Dolls, Infanticide, Pope Benedict XVI and trouble brewing on the Korean peninsula. Of particular interest to our single-minded narators are rumors of a potential sex tape in the making featuring the notorious Casey Anthony, whom both Chris and Rob reluctantly admit wanting to see naked. Featuring a shout out to our favorite podcaster, the lovely and lustful Amanda Nicole (http://www.spreaker.com/page#!/user/amandanicoleshow), as well as our patented brand of rampant vulgarity, we invite you to Vulcan mind meld with these two degenerates and hope you enjoy their warped if somewhat limited take on the news of the day…

Also returning this week is our Murdered by ROBOTS podcast featuring material from deep within our audio archives. On our latest episode, titled “Cheese Pants and Porcupine Vaginas”, we travel back nearly 17 years for some intimate home demos recorded in Virginia Beach, VA.

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…

Murdered by ROBOTS returned to terrestrial airwaves Tuesday night (01/29/13), making our third appearance on Lumpytunes!, 96.5 WSLR’s premiere oasis for eclectic and experimental audio chaos, debuting our brand new cover of the obscure Monkees track “Zilch” (Dolenz, Jones, Nesmith, Tork). Our eternal gratitude goes out to The Head Lump Rob Demperio for all of his support past, present and future. For those of you who missed it, you can download the song for free off of our Soundcloud page at https://soundcloud.com/screaming-mime-theater/zilch-monkees-cover or listen to it as one of the featured cuts on our latest Murdered by ROBOTS podcast on Spreaker.com titled “Surfing the Oort Cloud” at http://www.spreaker.com/user/5289522/surfing_the_oort_cloud.

As a child of the 70’s and 1980’s, I developed a lifelong love affair with the low-budget movie, that oft reviled red-haired stepchild of legitimate filmmaking that is the providence of brain-eating zombies, women in prison, lusty Third Reich uber-vixxxens and Hollywood chainsaw hookers… Those craptacular midnight movies and exploitation classics that provided the raw material for drive-ins, grindhouses and late night cable television outlets, as well as creating masturbatory fodder for guinnea pigs, myself included, who hit puberty amidst this non-stop assault of celluloid decadence and delicious indecency! I was one of many Generation Xers, a casualty of the post-nuclear family, a radioactive offspring of well-meaning but distracted baby boomers who attended to their respective midlife crisis while we bathed in the loving glare of our TV’s cathode rays.  And while June Cleaver was busy burning her bra, and Ward went off to start family number two, it was shows like Chiller Theater and Commander USA’s Groovie  Movies that babysat me and my fellow forgotten, and filled our impressionable minds with non-stop images of nipply death and ill-conceived pandemonium.

The above picture is a sample of that b-movie aesthetic that I often strive for in my photography. I aspire to recreate the look and feel of sleazy pulp-fiction novel covers and exploitation movie posters, the kind of eye-raising imagery that titillates the imagination with promises lurid thrills and simple, goofy fun! It is also inspired by the Murdered by ROBOTS song “Dumpster Baby” which is featured on our self-titled debut album.
