Len Peralta at Jawbone Radio, a multitalented bloke if ever there was one, has turned the two latest SONG FU entries into 100% certified USDA art.

It started with my niece Laurel, and now all of my nieces and nephews are using their aural youthiness to identify the songs which most compel them to perceive the world as a horrible place. This week’s offering:
KATY PERRY: I Kissed a Girl
It was inevitable that this song would hit the BSOtW list eventually; [...]

(What in the name of Sam Peckinpah am I talking about? See HERE.)
We had a week to throw together a song. Here was our assignment:

The prize: a free Rifftrax of your choice.
The task: you must lavishly praise the greatness of Joey Pants. Holding back will cost you dearly.
Further: you must work in the [...]

From today’s cnn.com home page. When your first bullet point for an article is “forecasters warn hurricane may bring ‘certain death‘”, perhaps you should rethink the horrible pun in the headline.

Even better? You can’t see it in this closeup, but he’s carrying a tray of freshly-cooked bacon.
UPDATE: Conor just emailed with a glorious fact:

There’s very little that needs to be said about the above video, except that I can all too easily envision a scenario where terrorists somehow slip THC into our nations water supply and use an endless loop of this video to keep everyone busy while they take over the world. Kudos to anyone who [...]

We’ve gone off track here at the RiffTrax blog. What was meant to be a repository for up-to-the-minute information on bacon has been distressingly bacon-free as of late. I blame myself*. I bring a peace offering: Bacon Flavored Vodka.
The quasar created by CERN should just now be gnawing its way through the core of the [...]

For the approx. twenty-seven years the Rifftrax Blog has been up and running, I’ve posted on occasion about animals who are freakishly big:

As I’m sure many of you often do, I was browsing the wikipedia entry for my high school today. Probably about four years ago, my friend Greg Harrell-Edge and I decided to exploit this new Wikipedia thing and add ourselves to the “notable alumni” section.

One of the most exciting aspects of Rogenomics is its ability to adapt to new Hollywood trends yet remain the most accurate predictor of their outcome. Last time we observed some basic principles; now let’s observe one of the recent additions to the pantheon of Leading Rogenomic Indicators (LRI’s), Jonah Hill. Jonah has dependably [...]

The Wheel of Fortune/Jeopardy hour. Not just a juggernaut of TV to watch while stuck at distant relatives houses, both shows are actually quite entertaining on their own, (though Wheel of Fortune mainly in slot machine form.) However, if you’re like me, you don’t give them much thought, and haven’t been excited about them in [...]
