Blob Town – Trailer

Mike / December 14th, 2010

My new documentary on the movie The Blob and it’s connection with Phoenixville, PA is finally done. It’s been two and a half years since I started it. I will release it December 28th, so you can enjoy it during the holiday season. It’s 24 minutes long and is similar to earlier documentaries I’ve done like Rocky Jumped A Park Bench and Follow That Marshmallow: A Ghostbusters Tour. It’ll be a nice way to finish the year.

    I’m looking forward to this but I’m curious as to why it’s taken 2 years? Is it just because of other work?

  • December 14, 2010 at 1:20 pm

    Oh man, I’m psyched for this! Love me some BLOB!

    Looking forward to this. Video very much. Love me some Blob.

    It’s the ads after the video that really get to me. I too am glad James is making some money, just wish there was another way. When will advertisers learn that this kind of advertising does nothing but make people go to different sites.

    If the nerd is such a painful burden than he should just quit doing it.

    Dirty Jared, it isn’t a fucking painful burden, and you’re ignorant for assuming so.

    Can’t wait for this, James.

  • Dirty Jared

    December 14, 2010 at 3:13 pm

    No your ignorant.

    December 14, 2010 at 3:15 pm

    Also I don’t like being cussed at. I have a right to state my views this isn’t the James Rolfe self esteem club friend.

    This looks really fun , I’m looking forward to it . James “terrified” facial expression always cracks me up .

    @Dirty Jared … I think your taking it the wrong way . He is merely stating the fact of the matter as to why it took two years for this to be done , etc. I don’t see it as a complaint about AVGN

    I’m using the Adblock Plus Add-On for Firefox, works perfectly fine. No ads, no banners, no pop-ups.

    Totally can’t wait to see it!

    I really enjoyed your other documentaries (rocky, ghostbusters), so can’t wait to see this one.

    Keep up the good work guys, been watching since noticing couple of the first nerd vids hitting youtube back then.

    I live in Phoenixville, PA, So i’m sicked to see James walking around in my town. I’ve always thought this town was just a piece of shit on the sidewalk of America, but apparently not.

    you’re a cool motherfucker, Rolfe… wish I was your buddy. I’d bring over tonnes more beer than that Matei guy… or whatever his name is — what’s that, Japanese?

    just kidding. I wish I was Mike’s bud, too.

    looks like the nerd saved up all his money to get a new camera.

  • Bick Benedict

    December 14, 2010 at 11:09 pm

    every comment “Mike Mataie” makes is defensive and negative. why can’t you just ignore the shit comments and respond with something nice once in a while ?

  • VinalTat

    December 14, 2010 at 11:51 pm

    @MikeMatei Help, it’s the BLAB!!!

  • Bick Benedict

    December 15, 2010 at 12:20 am

    @Mike Matei
    My bad then. I’ll take your word for it since it’s coming from the horse’s mouth, so to speak (and no offense). I guess being conversational on a huge forum isn’t possible, but you have to occasionally lash the whip in the direction of insolent fuckers (myself included sometimes).

  • The Angry Anime Nerd

    December 15, 2010 at 12:44 am

    Oh my gosh, James’ face at the end was priceless! Any particular reason why he was making it, like because of the re-enactment of the theatre scene?

  • liv4motox

    December 15, 2010 at 12:56 am

    Love it! Great job as usual James and Mike.

  • December 15, 2010 at 1:37 am

    @ Bick Benedict
    Oh my God. Can’t you ever stop being a douche for 5 fucking minutes? James and Mike work and work for your personal entertainment and all they get back are dickheaded messages like, “Every comment ‘Mike Matei’ makes is defensive and negative. Why canโ€™t you just ignore the shit comments and respond with something nice once in a while?”

    Well, that would’ve included ignoring your comment as well, just so you know. You’re throwing so much attitude at him and, yes, you really are an insolent fucker. Why don’t YOU say something nice for once instead of bitching?

    @ Mike
    Excuse Mr. Dick Benedict here, he’s just under the influence of dick-ahol while taking dick-aprodine right after he was diagnosed with “Dick’s disease”. He doesn’t mean it, he’s just naturally a dick what with the disease and all.

    Keep up the good work, you two!

    @ Liam Mulvey
    Yes, you keep up the good work, too.

  • December 15, 2010 at 1:42 am

    @ Dirty Jared
    He never said it was a burden, but he’s just been busy with a lot of other projects. And why the hell must you post so damn much?

    And “No your ignorant” (hahaha, by the way) shows how ignorant you are.

    Let me correct it for you where you won’t look dyslexic next time:
    “No, you’re ignorant.”

    Or, better yet, don’t use a comeback like a five year-old and go deeper, at least. Say something more interesting (though more of a jack-ass option on your part) like…. FUCK YOUR MOTHER YOU CUNT SNIFFING ANAL RAPER.

    You get my point, really. Just make something up, justify your points, or simply don’t make them at all.

  • Dirty Jared

    December 15, 2010 at 2:22 am

    You are so funny.

    just kidding man, i was trying to leave something ultra offensive for ya…no more dissing anyone, just enjoy the website. i’ll try to stop being a douche, and you do too

  • December 15, 2010 at 12:40 pm

    @zShadowman and everyone,

    The reason it took two and a half years to make was simply because of all the other projects I’ve been working on. We originally filmed it during Blobfest 2008 and had a few more locations to film, but it got put on halt. So I used some of the footage in my “Alien Invaders Remakes” review. My camera guy and myself had conflicting schedules. The winter meant no filming, because it was too cold and we didn’t want all the locations unrecognizably covered in snow. The summer’s were too busy because of all the traveling I do. So keeping up with AVGN was my top priority. Two Blobfests later (2010) we finally finished the shooting, but the editing was delayed again.

    In early 2010, during my short break from AVGN, I prioritized finishing my Ghostbusters documentary “Follow That Marshmallow” and the epic Board James episode “Mr. Bucket” which I had also been planning for a long time. The next big project was MONSTER MADNESS. (I have to start working on that no later than the Spring) Then the summer hit me! E3, Comic Con, everything! By the time I got a chance to work on Monster Madness, I was already behind schedule. I managed to get that done in the nick of time, and after that, it was time to work on the AVGN DVD Vol 4. And all this while keeping up with the regular AVGN/Spike videos.

    So now I’ve finally gotten back to Blob Town and finished it. I’m glad it’s done and I’m happy about all the things I accomplished this year.

  • Bick Benedict

    December 15, 2010 at 12:54 pm

    I don’t care if it took two years for the thing to get done–if that’s how long it takes, then that’s how long it takes. I wasn’t complaining. I’ve always said, take your time.

  • str8spaceball1

    I know you already know this but it’s still nice to hear. The people trying to piss you off and say your stuff sucks on your site, only represent like .001% of people. Just like anything on the net losers will find something to bitch about.

    Let’s just say your fans slightly outweigh the idiots. Constructive criticism is one thing, but not the majority of complainers on this site do that.

    Keep up the good work guys, love the effort and hard work. You deserve everything you get (in a good way)! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • December 15, 2010 at 3:47 pm


    Thanks! I appreciate it, although I didn’t see anyone complain here. There was just a legitimate question as to why this video took so long. Mike answered first. It got interpreted as being defensive, so I tried to clear things up. That’s all. I appreciate the kind words.

  • pobO

    December 15, 2010 at 3:48 pm

    great stuff here, as always =)
    peace guys

  • The Kaleidoscopic God

    December 15, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    Wow. I think this is the first time I’ve seen Mike comment… and then James commented as well!

    Today is a good day. I enjoy that sort of interaction with fans very much, even if it’s not with me. Although if it was to just clear things up, it showed that you cared enough to do just that. It also shows that you read comments on here (be it Mike or James). Very sweet. Not even a lot of YouTubers with like 1000 subscribers do that, like they’re too hot shit to give a fuck.

    Really looking forward to the documentary! Both Rocky Jumped A Park Bench (which was beautifully titled, by the way) and Follow That Marshmallow were very entertaining and quite informative. I also enjoyed that Sleepy Hollow video, although it wasn’t of the same caliber (technically).

    Keep up the good work.

    Obviously tone of voice doesn’t translate over the internet. I apologize for stirring the pot.

  • Bick Benedict

    December 15, 2010 at 5:26 pm

    No, tone doesn’t translate, your’e right Jared.
    James is a great guy!
    I apologize for stirring the pot too.

  • December 15, 2010 at 7:33 pm

    @ Dirty Jared
    Looks like someone need to grow some balls. Jared, you’re up.

    @ Bick Benedict
    Alright, but it just pisses me off when people are unappreciative of one of the hardest working people I’ve ever seen. Like, they get pissed at both James and Mike and give no thanks. Just one day in their shoes and they’ll change their attitude like Scrooge.


    All’s well, but let’s both try to be calm and nice from now on. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m reminded of Gandolf’s saying from The Fellowship of the Ring, “A wizard is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to.”

    James, your videos never take too long nor too soon to hit the eager viewing audiences, rather they arrive precisely when they should =).

    Also, this documentary looks awesome. I love weird little small-town charms. Reminds me of Groundhog Day.

    Looks really impressive. I feel really happy for you guys, seeing how far you’ve come since I became a fan of your work in 2006. You’ve really made something of yourself. Great work James, Mike and everyone else who contributes.

  • December 17, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    This is really ironic.
    Yesterday I was just watching National Geographic, some documentary about scientists trying to master the art of creating biological organisms, then as a worst-case example of doing so they just showed some fragments of The Blob.
    Got this movie on DVD a few years ago, and really?
    It’s always nice to look back on.

  • December 19, 2010 at 4:05 am

    this is gonna be really awesome just like your other two documentaries! also a copy of AVGN volume 4 is on my way so…this should help make it a holly jolly fuckin christmas!
