(N.B.: Yeah, reality TV parodies are pretty old now — approaching “white guys rapping” status. But I thought this was an original take on it. And you know how the kids these days love their 1920s German art movement satire!!)

Poo Coffee Follow-up

January 30th, 2008 by Mike Nelson · 55 Comments

This morning, I brewed and served the Kopi Luwak to RiffTrax and Legend staff. Some actual quotes from those brave enough to drink it:
“That was some good s**t!”
“…Smoother than the poop it was pulled from.”
“A unique aroma and a rich, earthy flavor make this a coffee I’m not quite sure I’d ever want to drink [...]

Which is truly more dangerous?

January 30th, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 40 Comments

Violent video games still seem to be a major concern of our society. I have seen recent PSAs alerting parents that the games their kids are playing may be…inappropriate! And somehow, video games are still mentioned as a concern of leading presidential candidates. Yet, I ask you: Do video games, in [...]

Hey fellow riffers! Great job on BATMAN AND ROBIN.

(Or as Arnold would say, BOHTMIN UND RUBBIN.)

Congratulations. Very funny riffing, there. I watched some last night, and enjoyed it immensely.
And bless you for taking the burden of B & R. It was glorious to be spared multiple viewings of this latex-nipple-fest.
Now go sterilize your keyboards, and take a [...]

I… have nothing for you.

January 29th, 2008 by Bill Corbett · 30 Comments

Truly.
But since Kevin and Mike posted their magnificent mugs on the blog today, I was feeling a little left out.
My visage is dangerous to look upon unless tempered with a soup├žon of cuteness, though. Hence I’m accompanied by my daughter Molly, Supreme Commander of the Allied Phantom Dog Armies.

Oh [...]

Sure, You’ll Eat My Skin…

January 29th, 2008 by Mike Nelson · 44 Comments

But will you drink this!?
Yes, what you see me holding is the infamous Kopi Luwak, or “Cat Poop Coffee”. A caring friend, knowing that I am something of a coffee nut, thought I might like to try some that had been passed through the digestive system of an Asian mammal. And boy, do I ever.
But [...]

Weather Macho

January 29th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 74 Comments

Yesterday in Minnesota it was forty degrees. The crusty gray snow languished into slushy gray porridge. Last night freezing rain sprayed an Oklahoma-style ice glaze over the road, sending cars spinning friction-free into each other like a bumper pool table populated by sport-utes. All day today snow will polish the ice to a [...]

F.Y.I.

January 28th, 2008 by Bill Corbett · 30 Comments

Yeah, it’s me who’s been doing that.
I should have let you known earlier. Sorry, my bad. Rude of me not to keep you in the loop. We’re cool now, though?
In any case, looking forward to eating more of your skin.
sincerely yours,
Bill

Nice Bhut!

“Gee, I like chile peppers, but I find even the hottest of them, your Red Savinas and your Habaneros’es leave portions of my mouth disappointingly unblistered. Where can a guy find a simple, economical chile that will leave me writhing on the floor unable to breath, clutching my throat, excreting tears and mucus and praying [...]

Confess Your Bad Taste II: THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL RIFFTRAX POST EVER.

January 27th, 2008 by Bill Corbett · 108 Comments

…And I mean, EVER. For all of Rifftrax Blog history. Boggles the brain, no?
This post could ruin my authority as a riffclown, and may well jeopardize my membership in URP — the Union of Riffing Professionals. (I’m in Local 176.)
It could also get me kicked out of the band. I [...]

Bonesaw is ready…

…to say “thank you, friends.”

I really appreciated the great comments in my recent post here. There are some excellent writers on this site. Also some very odd people… which means I’m in the right place. Among my own.
If you haven’t read the comments by your fellow Rifftraxians, give yourself [...]
