photo (2)   By all accounts, audio podcasting is the bottom-most rung of the broadcasting ladder, a virtual megaphone for the most disenfranchised of the lunatic fringe; those of us who are too ugly to appear on YouTube video diaries and lacking the discipline and written prowess of our distant relatives, the bloggers. Yet, all across the globe, we oddballs are huddled in our mother’s basements spilling our guts out into a microphone, as we channel our inner Howard Sterns, spreading conspiracy theories and preaching from our digital soapbox, in pursuit of that promised but ever elusive 15 minutes of fame. At sporadic intervals throughout the year, we cast out our half-baked message in a bottle in hopes that someone, ANYONE, will humor us by listening to the voices in our head! Predictably, for the most part, our need for validation goes unfulfilled. But, every now and then, if we are really lucky, against all odds, our seemingly futile attempts at relevance are acknowledged and our efforts are actually recognized!

This past Tuesday, Two Guys Watching Porn released our 68th episode titled “Hot Threesome Action!”, co-starring our new friend and show correspondent Nancy, who joined my co-host Rob and I on a roller coaster rant-fest covering celebrity sex scandals, polyamory, security breaches at the White House and the looming fear of Ebola outbreaks. To our surprise , this episode caught the attention of an online newspaper named The Lucius Scribbens Daily, dedicated to the discussion of “all matters regarding polyamory, open relationships, swinging and BDSM”, which included a link to our current show in the “Adult” section of their 10/14/14 edition. We were thrilled to be included and welcome all new listeners who may have been “turned on” to and by our show thanks to this much appreciated yet unsolicited publicity. And, since one good turn deserves another, we’d like to encourage all readers of our own blog and all listeners to Two Guys Watching Porn to check out The Lucius Scribbens Daily for themselves!

photoIt’s been a busy year for us here at Murdered by ROBOTS and, unfortunately, our website has suffered because of it, resigned to a cold cruel fate usually reserved for red-headed step children, neglected and unloved and buried neck deep in a pool of filth. While we were off enjoying misadventures, this page was all but forgotten, collecting digital dust. Many of you, our loyal followers, have held your breath awaiting news of our latest shenanigans and many of you, alas, have died waiting. And while we mourn the loss of those most hardcore fans, we can only chalk things up to Darwin’s principle of natural selection and move forward. Since our last update, Murdered by ROBOTS and our fellow denizens of the Screaming Mime Theater have been hard at work spreading our gospel of God awful and creating (dis)content to entertain the ever drooling masses.

Our music has continued to feature regularly on our favorite terrestrial radio program, 96.5 WSLR’s infamous Lumpytunes!, hosted by the Head Lump, Rob Demperio. We’ve recorded a slew of new songs including our first commercial single, “Respect Existence”, now available for sale on iTunes and Amazon, and appeared on Hal McGee’s Big Florida Noise Compilation this past June. We will also be featured on the soon to be released sound project from Polish based Splitterkor Rekords Dziwko (SKRD) titled “What is Noise For You?”, along with fellow underground acts including Ninja McTits and SATANOID! In further international news, MbR was recently interviewed for Canadian Radio by indie outlaw and Soundcloud legend Kyle Nickum, host of Hipster’s Paradise on Phantom 103.3 out of Bathurst, New Brunswick, the home of eclectic music for the Great White North! And when we weren’t spreading like cancer across international borders, we were busy shooting new music videos with the likes of the always alluring Mandy Taylor, and conquering the local Alternative charts on ReverbNation where, for eight glorious days this past month, we held the number one spot in Sarasota on a list containing bUG eYED mONSTERS, and friend and former collaborator Nacho Steppinstone.

On our podcasting front, Two Guys Watching Porn has continued to redefine the meaning of TMI as hosts Rob and Chris lower the parameters of decent social intercourse to near Marinas Trench depths with their dull witted,  ill informed and often highly inflammatory discussions involving everything from Kate Upton’s boobs and robot sex toys, to vomiting parasites and End Time prophesy! The boys even caught the eye (and ear) of the fine folks at TeamSkeet.com, who were kind enough to send us a box of free swag containing stickers, t-shirts and DVDs. Since our last update a full 17(!!) episodes have sullied the Internet’s virtual airwaves, bringing our grand total of listens for our combined podcasts to 8,755 (including 4,578 downloads). A full episode guide of the last 17 shows is coming soon!

When last we posted, our homegrown horror host web series, Oliver’s Twisted Bargain Basement Midnight Movie Stoner Friendly Freak Show, had just premiered on YouTube, as well as other video hosting outlets like Daily Motion, Vimeo, and (on a goof) Porn Hub. Since that debut, two more episodes featuring Oliver, his faithful sidekick Horse Head Ed, show mascot Shadow Stevens, and announcer Albert Fish have been released. Many of Screaming Mime Theater’s favorite video vixens have also appeared, including Dayana Valentino, Melissa Dawson, and Kara 0300. The show has featured shout-outs to one of our favorite horror hosts, Dark Hours Theatre’s very own Uncle Edward, who has kindly returned the favor on two of his programs, Uncle Edward’s Trailer-Rama and the latest episode of The It Came From the Basement Show. We thank Edward for all of his encouragement and unwavering support! As of this writing, OTBBMMSFFS has received a whopping 3,452 views (though it begs mentioning that 2,308 of those views were from confused and very frustrated porn surfers).

Finally, our reach has oozed into the world of social media, with Facebook pages for all of our major projects available for fans looking to interact with us and keep up to date with our activities.

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.
