It’s a new day, which means it’s time for another silly poll!
This week, we’ve got the question of the ages for you: a spaceship question.
For years, we’ve made passing reference to the infamous Robogoblin Army, a rare collection of fans, listeners, mythical creatures, and cyborgs whose very existence keeps the universe from collapsing in on itself! If you’re a fan of this podcast, you’re a member of the Robogoblin Army. Make sure to email us about your magic techno badge (there are no badges, YET).
If you’re a Patreon supporter, you may have noticed that one of the levels mentions something called the Robogoblin Gazette. And you might be asking yourself, “Gee, what is this Gazette thing?” We’re glad you asked!
Introducing Issue #1 of the Robogoblin Gazette, a collection of weirdness, criticism, fiction, and art by the glorious people who make this podcast and blog happen. Check out the gorgeous cover made by Jen’s daughter, Moira Zink: [Read more…]
We’re rolling out a new thing on the blog. It began as a new thing on our Twitter account: #PollMondays. People seemed to like it, so we’re going to do more of it!
The premise for today’s poll is simple: if these super people sat down for a game of Risk, who do you think would win? To make things more interesting, we’ve taken out all of the obvious contenders for smarts and tactics, such as Batman, Professor X, Nick Fury, Brainiac, and basically anyone who can reliably see the future. Instead, we’re giving you big, beefy superheroes — known for their ability to punch other people in the face more than their ability to strategize (mostly).
We’ve been enjoying ourselves forcing you guys to pick older movies and this month is no exception! The question is, what decade produced the WORST science fiction films? Honestly, I have no idea, and I really doubt this completely unscientific poll will answer that question, but WOW do these movies look awful! They’re all available on YouTube right now so if you want to watch before you decide, please do! But this poll ends on Friday, so hurry!
Even though you probably haven’t even had the pleasure of listening to Shaun’s singing in our Queen of the Damned episode yet, it’s time to pick our torture for June! This time, we’ve decided to force you to torture us with a classic… Ok, so ‘classic’ is probably being too kind to the utter drek that you get to pick from this month. May Cthulhu have mercy on our souls.
Well, everyone, Babylon AD was pretty awful. More awful than some of us remembered. So good job on your April pick! This time around, there are no redeeming features to any of these movies. We swear. None. So pick away and be confident that whatever you do choose, it will be torturous for our participants!!
We said on Twitter a while back that some changes were coming to The Skiffy and Fanty universe. The first of those changes is our Patreon page. This post is all about what we changed.
To our current Patreon supporters, we offer a hearty thanks! Hopefully, our new goals and updated supporter levels will keep you with us for the next 10,000 years!
For the most part, our supporter levels are the same. We did reduce the number of levels and make each “perk” more cohesive. Here’s what to expect:
We truly do HATE to disappoint you, but this has literally nothing to do with college basketball. We just felt like torturing you.
HOW DO YOU LIKE US NOW?!
Just kidding. Sort of. Really, it’s just time to pick our next Torture Cinema of 2017! We have a wide variety of total crap for you to choose from. So choose wisely!!
