Flopcast 211: Tickled Skink

As summertime approaches here in Chickentown, Kevin and Kornflake are back on the iced coffee, featuring our beloved coffee cubes! (Coffee cubes are like Time for Timer's "Sunshine on a Stick," but without the toothpicks, and you use coffee instead of orange juice. We'll send you the recipe.) This week Kevin has a couple of concert reports, as Ben Folds and yMusic rock Boston (with a bass clarinet!), and Freezepop returns to Harvard Square (with a bunch of keytars, of course). And by the way, there are just a few days left in Freezepop's Kickstarter campaign! Send them your human money, and you might even get a Fluff sandwich in return. Also: Kornflake cannot avoid the Red Arrow Diner (which is not a problem), we celebrate National Grape Popsicle Day, and we peek inside the old Flopcast mailbag. As one might assume, it's filled with lobsters and skinks.

Show Notes

Freezepop's very successful Kickstarter is wrapping up soon! Fabulous prizes are still available!

Speaking of frozen treats, May 27 is National Grape Popsicle Day. If you have vintage Tupperware molds like Felicity's family had (or something more modern), you can make your own. Time for Timer taught us an even simpler method!

Kevin and Felicity recently enjoyed a performance by Ben Folds with his most recent collaborators, yMusic.

What a fine skink our listener Bob found at the San Francisco Bay Aquarium!
