Magfest 2017

Cosplay, Gaming and Music from Beatdown Boogie!

We’re back! That’s right El Moochadores, we (the intrepid Brothers Moo) have survived yet another swirling storm of disaster and chaos (aka: our lives) and are now (some how) wiser, better looking, and ready to blog. So, let us celebrate this triumphant return by getting back to some cool geek creativity.

Recently Distractotron visited MAGfest 2017 and they brought back a whole bunch of cool photos and video work. MAGfest (Music and Gaming) is a “four day-long event dedicated to the appreciation of video game music, gaming of all types, and the gaming community.” According to the website the event runs 24 hours a day (wtf SDCC? get it together!) and offers “consoles, arcades, tabletop, LAN, live video game cover bands, chiptunes, vendors, guest.” Cool, maybe Atomic Moo and the Murray Brothers Creative can attend a future MAGfest. We’re cool too, right?

Anyways, check out the videos (parts one and two) below along with a smattering of images taken from the Distractotron Facebook page.


NYCC 2016 Coverage from Beat Down Boogie!


Spotlight Videos One and Two!

We’re west coast guys and, for the most part, content with our lives here in sunny, beautiful, San Diego. However, we’re also very poor and unable to attend some of the amazing comic book conventions happening around the world. So, we rely on the stunning photo and video work of the fine people at Beat Down Boogie to provide excellent coverage of events like NYCC 2016. Just seeing all the beautiful cosplay and fun events shot in slow motion and paired with good tunes fills me… aww, who am I kidding. These guys are good at something and they get to travel around the world doing it and that feels me with a jealous rage! I’m terrible at everything and it gets me no where! Fuck’n life. So anyways; for what ever reason, check out the videos below to either enjoy them or seethe with the frustrating jealousy.

The Atomic Moocast #115!


WonderCon 2016!

Yeah, I know WonderCon was about a month ago, but damnit! We’re in the midst (Midst, people! Midst!) of some very important con preparation ourselves, and that sort of slowed things down a bit. However, the podcast is here! So rejoice! Then check out a few notes about this episode: NEuY5mxKsO4Jyv_1_b

First: Many thanks to all the comic creators and artist who let us interview them at the con! Unfortunately, I lost about half the interviews I had recorded that day. D’oh! You have to understand, that I’m very new to recording stuff on my iPhone. Add that to my limited intelligence and… well, bad stuff’s going to happen. Seriously though, I feel terrible about it. Somehow I deleted about 1/2 of all our interviews and it was gone before I had a chance to pull them from my phone. Some of these interviews included conversations with past Atomic Moo interviewees like Josh Henaman (Big Foot: Sword of the Earthman), and Sarah Bitely (Pimpkillah!). IMG_0289Also, because I lost so many interviews, I will be posting about this great stuff here on the website, so as to make sure everyone get’s some coverage for their hard work. Check the show notes below for information about the featured interviews, but keep coming back to see more great art and comics featured at this years con. Which leads to…

Second: I’m really new to recording with an iPhone. So, things are going to sound weird. I know that it’s always been a struggle to get good audio with our limited resources, but I’m getting some new challenges thrown at me with this new set up. We’re practicing more and recording as much as possible, so hopefully it sounds better in the future, but the sounds kind of all over the place on this one. I did my best to level everything, but… ehh… you’ll hear. I hope.

Third: The movie review of Batman v. Superman at the very end of this podcast was heavily edited. You see, I got this problem where I can’t talk about any movie without bring up how much I hate (HATE) the most recent Disney/Star Wars film. So, because we were talking about Batman v. Superman,2016-04-01-1459488050-1567099-bvs I kind of went through and edited out all my tangents about the (not Star Wars!) Disney-bullshit that has me so perturbed these days. It’s not like I’m afraid to tell people my feelings about that (shitty) film, it’s just that I felt it wasn’t necessary for a discussion about another movie. So, the review at the end may feel a little, “clunky” and “malformed.” Much like Disney/Star Wa– goddammit. I can’t stop myself.

So, having wrote all that: Here it is folks! One hour of Atomic Moo bliss ready to make a home somewhere in the deepest crevices of your brain! But don’t hit “play” yet! Get ready for it! Go and grab some tasty snacks! Then turn off your all distractions and nestle into your comfy zone. Then all that’s left to do is settle your brain and smile as you relax with the best damn podcast your friends don’t know about!



Check a small sample of photos from the con and some of the featured artists work! Also, if I can somehow find the lost interviews (learn my iPhone) I’ll post them on a future Moocast episode.

The Really Long DRAGON CON 2013 Video – 40 minutes!


Hello El Moochadores! I was sent this video a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been wanting to post about it since then, but since the universe likes to kick me around like a sorry used bean bag, I haven’t had the spare time until now… So…

Check out a 40 minute long video of all the cool cosplay from Dragon Con 2013! Sure Dragon Con was months ago, but since Halloween is just around the corner (and some of us are still scrambling for costume ideas) I thought this would be a good time to check out all the brilliant ideas people came up with.1237883_557822180921459_89691190_n The video was produced by Beat Down Boodie on the youtube and if you check out their Facebook you can see dozens of excellent photos from the con! My only problems with this video are One: I didn’t get to go. Two: At 40 minutes, just make it into a documentary and throw some voiceovers and interviews in there! It’s cool, but like the title says, it’s really long. Also, if anyone out there knows who this Tank Girl1174574_559442884092722_1411995768_n is, please let me know. I want to make her mine. Yes, She’ll be a bloggers wife and we’ll travel to the furthest reaches of San Diego county – staying in only the finest of the Motel 6’s her money can afford… but, y’know, only so long as she’s dressed like Tank Girl all the time!

Anyways! Check out the video below and enjoy the hell out of it!

Atomic Moocast #23: Interview with Steam Crow!

Good evening El Moochadores and how the hell are you tonight? Good, I hope, and probably better once you give the new Atomic Moocast a listen. On this episode we had the opportunity to interview Steam Crow creator, Daniel Davis. Many thanks to Daniel for spending some time on our podcast and telling us all about his illustrations, wonderful creative web site, and making money at the cons!

Later in the Moocast (after the break) D20 jumps in the recording for a little “Moo-News” and helps us establish a key part of the cult of the Atomic Moo… The Danhood. All is explained on the Moocast, Mu HA HA Ha! Okay, enough of that. So, this is it folks! Squeeze on in to that comfy chair, pop the tab on that fizzy soda, get your best girl to curl up next to you, and hit play to start the best damn podcast your friends don’t know about!
