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…

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.

   Proving that their music is too powerful to be confined  to the Internet, Murdered by ROBOTS has  plundered the low power FM airwaves once again with their acoustic instrumental “Trance“, featured on a special robot-themed edition of  96.5 WSLR‘s flagship of mondo beyondo madness,  Lumpytunes! The track, a scaled down version of our song “Down to the Slaughter” (minus drumbeat, bass and vocals), was featured on a playlist that included Dan Deacon (of “Drinking out of Cups” fame), Devo, The Clash and Frank Zappa!Thank you Head Lump Rob Demperio for your continued support!
