If you happen to look like this guy, please remember that we kid because we love. HUGE Post-Cyberpunk Fan. Believes he wields tremendous power on […]

Spearheaded the Walworth County, Wisconsin Save Firefly movement (3 members). Thinks Doctor Horrible is “longish.” Works sealing cartons at a rubber novelty fulfillment house. Has an incomplete collection of Space 1999 action figures.

It’s Comic-Con time, and the folks at Legend Films are busily prepping our own Mike Nelson for his appearance at the Rifftrax/Legend Films Booth, and of course for Rifftrax Live Saturday at the gorgeous Balboa Theater. It’s no easy task – Mike has been broken down into his component parts, shrink-wrapped and packed into seventeen […]

Consider: N.B.: The Slimsticks are free. What with the high price of Slimsticks these days, I’d advise anyone to seize this opportunity. (Best image available. And LORD KNOWS I’ve looked. Anyone want to try deciphering the Snare-ian text?) [IMPORTANT UPDATE! The YouLookNiceToday people (thanks, by the way) have a bigger image. Though you can never […]

Project Gary, the new sitcom starring Jay “The American People Continue to Say ‘No’ to Me, Yet Executives Don’t Seem to Believe Them” Mohr has undergone a name change – FOR THE WORST! Project Gary is now … Gary Unmarried. The funny, however, has not changed:Watch CBS Videos Online

It will all have been a big sad joke if after these earthbound days are over, my final resting place is not listed in Find A Grave. Good to have an pre-arranged exit, in case you plan on going zombie (as I do). And if I still live in Minnesota — more accurately, if I […]

On those rare occasions when I show people something I’ve drawn, the most common reaction I get is, “Oh, you poor thing. Was it a farm accident?” For you see, they wrongly assume that my hands must have been caught up in a tractor’s PTO and left mangled and nearly useless. (I suppose they assume, […]

“Time” in this case equalling me. Apologies. For a reminder of what this rather odd contest was about, click here. Warning: it involves a very young, quite enraged, woman-hatin’ Joey Lawrence. Congratulations to all contestants: you are smart, you are funny, and some of you are frightening. (Yes, I’m talking about YOU. You know who […]

Why in the name of all that is good and holy would you strive for this look? It’s not too late, Mr. White. Even this would be a better direction:

Well, it’s no Schnappi… And more Chihuahua news from the NY Times here. Though no mention of Conor’s original. Journalistic misconduct of the gravest kind.

If anyone lives in or around the Twin Cities, MN, area, I’ll be on the show “Twin Cities Live” today to talk about this past weekend’s release of MEET HELLBOY (AND BE QUICKLY, BRUTALLY CRUSHED BY HIM). Since it’s live, I will be showing up in cutoff jeans and a wife beater shirt, cradling a […]

Sorry, no. It’s not all glamour and glitz. Sometimes you PLAN to avenge evil, but you just wind up drinking too much Jagermeister.

Bill, from all of us here at RiffTrax, congratulations, and well done! I don’t know what it is, but I offer you the cinematic equivalent of “break a leg”, and here’s hoping we toast a huge opening weekend. Go, Dave, Go!
