Aloha Podcast! Our guest this week is Rob Schrab, director, writer, co-creator of Channel 101 and author/artist/creator of Scud the Disposable Assassin as well as director of the new season of MST3K
It starts off great, then Neil gets over his skis with dropping his first contribution to the musical side with a song he got from Spencer on the Harmontown podcast. But then we dive into Robs origins in comedy and how MST3K ties into it. We talk Neils fascination with the stories of Motley Crue but not their music. Robs music video for Death Cab for Cutie song Crooked Teeth
We talk the best parts of what Channel 101 has brought to our lives and how the concept of getting paid in fun beats getting paid almost nothing (Shots fired sound at JGL and HitRECord).
We also hearken back to Robs early days and talk his Dead Ale Wives D&D sketch that grew in the early days of the internet and his love for the VHS trading community
Then we take a deep dive into Scud, its origins as a comic, the way it helped break Robs career and eventually let to him abandoning the project pre finale, only to return to it years later to give the fans, and himself, the closure it and he needed. He announces a kickstarter to get Scud the color he’s always deserved.
