If you’ve been following our various projects.. then you might have been following along Matt McInnis and Dan McFarland’s very own movie pod-mentary series CineMother-Lovers.
In addition to being available at cinemolos.com you can now also hook up with us on iTunes here
Hop over and listen to us talk over a lot of movies that we love and/or hate while more or less echoing things heard on RedLetter Media. Seriously though.. go comment, rate, and all those other forms of internet judgment.
Just wanted to put a quick update out.. Straightouttacomicon.com has been looking a little neglected because its being merged into Mantapus.com, so as to get all the press kits, demos, and fun stuff for the various projects we do under one roof.
You’ll notice our “shop” page is a brand new Bandcamp page, which allows us to keep all the merch we’ve been selling here and our CD downloads available side by side with the movie riffs and podcasts from our other sites. This will also be where our next CD is going to popup, as well as a few other new digital projects that we have in the works.
And, last but not least, we have started the process of building our 2015 appearances. If you want us in your area, contact your local convention folks and send them here!
All that to say, thanks for the support and we will hopefully have the construction and clean up on this site and Mantapus.com all polished up quickly.
This update is hitting a little late, as we have been keeping busy. We recently returned from our second trip to Glitch!Con in Arkansas. We shared the guest list with some cool folks like Steve Downes (who now owns our CD, and hopefully has enjoyed hearing a third generation version of his own character’s voice.) and squeezed in multiple performances as well as lots of tabletop gaming with fans. All in all it was good fun. We went right from that into the Blokes telling Jokes show in Westport, MO.
Now that September is here, we wanted to post up some places you can see us this month.
September 2nd, the daily web series Smoke Break starts. While not a SOCC project it features our own Matt McInnis in it, so support at youtube.com/smokebreakseries and keep an out for him to pop up.
On September 11th, Matt Keck will be at the World Famous Improv in a comedy showcase held by Comedy Central themselves, so if youre in the Kansas City area be sure to get out and show geek love.
On the 14th, catch us working with Riff group pals Cheap Shots! Cheap Shots will be doing a live riff of 80s train wreck film Thrashin’.
By the months end, we should have a date set for our next live show out of Tabletop Game and Hobby and a few new videos to put up as well. So stay tuned.
On top of ALL that, booking for our 2014 Spring and Summer tour is in the works! So contact your local conventions and demand that they bring us over!
We want to send out a belated thanks to ConCarolinas as well as to all the people we met and hung out with there from the fans to the guests all the way up to the committee. Its an amazing con and we are glad to be a part of it! Now that we are home we’ve been taking it easy for June and most of July, focusing on local shows and local conventions (like the Kansas City Rock and Comicon).
We will be picking back up road shows as August gets closer. Until then, keep an eye on our Youtube and Facebook for updates and check out our CD on your music source of choice!
As always, thank you for keeping us going. We are nothing without you.
