Slade…

January 25th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 16 Comments

…would like to wish us all good morning, and hopes that we’ll “Cum on and Have a Noo-trishus Brek-fist!”
I don’t think it’s a good idea to judge Slade’s motive on this, as they have been rocking consistently for forty years, and one might guess that a good breakfast is partly responsible. It might also [...]

2008 is already old news to many of you, but there are still many great things to look forward to this year. It’s a leap year for one. And the Olympics are always fun. (The universe may come to an end on May 20th, but who’s counting?)

But the truly exciting thing about [...]

Please don’t send us cow heads.

January 24th, 2008 by Bill Corbett · 30 Comments

Like any group of entertainers, like any business, we here at Rifftrax might disappoint you at times. It’s just acknowledging reality to admit that.
But please, when you feel frustrated, cheated, or angry at us, please — I implore you, please — don’t send us cow heads.

Even though it seemed the perfect gift …

Armies of phantom dogs, and other signs of childhood omnipotence.

January 23rd, 2008 by Bill Corbett · 54 Comments

My two and a half year old daughter began with just a few imaginary dog friends. Two or three of them started the pack.
She’s now up to nine dogs, and counting. They’re all different sorts of breeds, and they all have names, very specific colors, as well as an increasing array of otherworldly [...]

You’re SO Sincere

January 23rd, 2008 by Mike Nelson · 14 Comments

The other night after our RiffTrax Live show Kevin Murphy and I met the lovely and talented Janet Varney and the lovely and talented Cole Stratton at a tiny, nearly empty karaoke bar where we proceeded to amuse ourselves with ironically sung versions of popular songs. Cole gifted us with a spot-on Dave Pirner [...]

Clint Howard

January 22nd, 2008 by Bill Corbett · 16 Comments

would like to say goodnight, but first asks (shyly; adorably, really) if you’d like to join him for a nightcap of Tranya?

No? Just a second…
(Whispers to Clint. Clint whispers back.)
Er….
He wants to know if this change of hat would help? Maybe make you more comfortable? He thinks it makes him [...]

Dr. Evel

January 22nd, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 6 Comments

One summer in between years of college, I somehow got kind of good at diving at our neighborhood pool, which had a high dive. I could do an inward and a one-and-a-half, and eventually lost enough sense to try a double flip. In order to build up enough speed, you essentially had to [...]

John Updike is proud of his poop.

January 21st, 2008 by Bill Corbett · 22 Comments

Prolific, highly respected American author John Updike wants you to know the pride he feels in a recent caca.
So great was his feeling of accomplishment that he followed up his first act of creation with a second:

“The Beautiful Bowel Movement”
by John Updike

Though most of them aren’t much to write about—
mere squibs [...]

Ronnie James Dio…

January 21st, 2008 by Mike Nelson · 11 Comments

…Just wanted to let you know that he does have two butter knives.

He (Ronnie James Dio) remembers when you were over at his place about six months ago and he asked you in for lunch (you reluctantly agreed) and when he served you the Tyson Chicken Kiev, the one that was nearly frozen in the [...]

Thanks for making Rifftrax Live at the SF Sketchfest such a blast. We were treated like old friends by a sell-out crowd at the gorgeous Castro Theater. Many thanks to Sketchfest founders David Owen, Cole Stratton and Janet Varney and their team who work their keesters off to put on the best festival [...]

I’m really looking forward to visiting S.F. for our live riff of PLAN NINE FROM OUTER SPACE tomorrow night.

MAGNETO (not Cerebro) sez: Come to San Francisky!
What a great town! Can’t wait to try one of the city’s signature cheesesteaks, go up in the Space Needle, and visit the Corn Palace.
The Castro Theatre, where [...]

Shane MacGowan

January 16th, 2008 by Bill Corbett · 12 Comments

hasn’t had a drink in a few hours, and wanted you to know that he actually feels better, which surprises him.

He thinks he’s even looking a bit better, too. But he concedes that until you see the teeth, that remains unproven.
Anyway… just some things that Shane MacGowan wanted YOU to know. He [...]
