A-maying

April 30th, 2009 by Mike Nelson · 66 Comments

Tomorrow is May. Though I will still be busy with RiffTrax, I do plan on spending all my spare time a-maying. While traditionally, a-maying involves amorous adventures with fair maidens, that’s not how I celebrate it.

No, this is how I do a-maying.

And may I introduce you to my a-maying partner?

The impromptu Rifftrax Live show…

April 28th, 2009 by Bill Corbett · 47 Comments

…now belongs to history, as do buddies Wax President John Tyler and Wax President Gerald R. Ford.

Two points:
1) We’ll do more live online shows, and give more notice when so. The one we did today was an impromptu beta test.
2) The above picture has been posted because you DEMANDED more wax [...]

Opinions vary

Wax Hitler

April 25th, 2009 by Bill Corbett · 76 Comments

…is fighting mad. After seeing my last blog post yesterday, he’s sworn to stay online day and night for the sole purpose of comparing me to his non-wax counterpart. You see, at the end of that piece I made an offhand, perhaps-unkind reference to one Bea Arthur.
Today she died. [...]

Wax Dracula

April 24th, 2009 by Bill Corbett · 66 Comments

…or “Waxula,” to his pals, is undoubtedly made of wax. He’ll admit that upfront. He’s not trying to fool anyone!

But don’t get him started on TWILIGHT. Wax Dracula insists that while he is indeed made of wax, he is roughly 7000 times scarier / more interesting than all that series’ vampires put [...]

Wan, Murderous, Sparkly Pan-Beings!

April 21st, 2009 by Mike Nelson · 103 Comments

When will they invent a bloodthirsty, evil hell-beast for the rest of us? They have! Gone are the days when vampires were dreary, basement dwelling Eastern Europeans in capes. Now they are dreary, fey little d-bags wearing lipstick and shuffling around like unenthusiastic Lord Byron impersonators without the animal machismo or ruffled shirts. And they’re [...]

Keep in mind…

April 20th, 2009 by Mike Nelson · 36 Comments

As life gets hectic and all of us feel the sting of financial woes, pressures at work, family issues, etc., it’s important to remember this: that Robin Gibb and Eleanor Roosevelt are actually the same person.

The Zodiac Cabaret is Over!

April 19th, 2009 by Bill Corbett · 45 Comments

Wax J. Edgar Hoover says break it up and go home, everyone.

****
UPDATE: Though the figure above really is supposed to be J. Edgar, it’s possible they accidentally used latter-day Stooge “Curly” (ha!) Joe DeRita as model:

**Update by Mike**
Turns out it’s NOT a wax figure, simply a candid shot of the late Rodney Dangerfield.

Saturday Night Zodiac Cabaret!

April 18th, 2009 by Bill Corbett · 55 Comments

I know it’s a bold move to post this here… but I was born on March 30th, which makes me an Aries. Therefore I am, I am, I am the ram. I am, I am, I am the ram. I am, I am, I am the ram. I am, I am [...]

Soar into your weekend

April 17th, 2009 by Conor Lastowka · 42 Comments

Sometimes two art forms come together in a synergy so beautiful, you wonder how your world existed before someone (in this case youtube user tteeddssoonn) put them together.
 

Twilight Sucks Forum user “estora” unfortunately has a different viewpoint: “I love Meat Loaf — it’s disgraceful to have his name associated with the failfest that is *&%$ing [...]

Today is NOT National High Five Day

April 17th, 2009 by Bill Corbett · 71 Comments

…That’s what Wax Laurel and Hardy first thought when they awoke this morning, but then they were quickly distracted by a more urgent question:
“Why are we surrounded by chicken wire?”

Today is National High Five Day

April 16th, 2009 by Bill Corbett · 32 Comments

National High Five Day, or NH5D, was created by our Rifftrax colleague Conor — with a degree of irony, or not, that I don’t pretend to understand. But for people younger and sharper than myself, Conor explains it HERE.
So get out there TODAY and celebrate NH5D in a manner you deem appropriate, with other [...]
