Look at our shorts

November 20th, 2009 by Mike Nelson · 44 Comments

31shorts 600

If you’re in the San Diego area, come see us at the California Center for the Arts in Escondido for our Christmas Shorts-stravaganza! We’ll be there, up on stage, on the 16th of December. There will be many suprises, one of which I’ll spoil. I will wrestle a bear while Kevin, dressed as a cowboy, saddles up a gorilla and rides him WHILE AT THE SAME TIME Bill performs his knife throwing act on Crispin Glover!* (”Weird Al” Yankovic will also be there.)

As a bonus, we WILL be wearing the shorts pictured above.

*May not actually occur.

    Does the disclaimer also apply to the wearing of those shorts?

    This could be a dealbreaker.

  • 2 Thaniel on Nov 20, 2009 at 4:56 pm

    Sometimes I think you just make stuff up.

  • 3 Alan on Nov 20, 2009 at 5:42 pm

    The guy on the left looks a little embarrassed. And rightfully so.

    Are these Kevin’s designs?

    Hey bros:
    So dowloadable comedic movie commentary seems to be an ever-growing internet industry and while y’all started it, this guy Brad Neely has expanded upon it:

    The ‘Wizard People’ thing is maybe a little more, uh, niche, but I bet you guys would make a crackin’ team. Have a listen!

    Kevin used to wear a gorilla costume for a paycheck.

    Does that mean he’s going to ride himself?

  • 6 Lisa M on Nov 21, 2009 at 11:18 am

    Now, would these be the shorts we get for free after the show?

  • 7 Fantagor on Nov 21, 2009 at 2:12 pm

    Ah, the new line of Angus Young casual wear is in!

    Sounds great, but hopefully for safeties sake Crispin Hellion Glover will be heavily tranquilized.

  • 9 BEMaven on Nov 22, 2009 at 3:33 am

    I see that Pee Wee Herman in the far right photo is finally responding to hormone therapy.

  • 10 BEMaven on Nov 22, 2009 at 6:36 am

    Um, I mean the far LEFT photo.

    Crispin Glover in the far right photo needs a tie. Otherwise, he’s good to go.

  • 11 MikeH on Nov 22, 2009 at 1:50 pm

    Never tuck in your shirt when you wear shorts, EVER!!

  • 12 chrismartindeed on Nov 23, 2009 at 10:06 am

    If your shirt is long enough, you don’t even have to wear shorts.

  • 13 rebisaz on Nov 23, 2009 at 11:15 am

    Those shorts are upsetting.

  • 14 Earl Fando on Nov 24, 2009 at 7:00 am

    Nonsense, they just included that footnote to throw off the animal rights people and to put Bridget at ease. Remembering reading Mike’s short piece about his wrestling career makes me think “bear” is pretty ambitious.

  • 15 Earl Fando on Nov 24, 2009 at 7:01 am

    Shame on everyone who read this and thought, “Kinky.”

  • 16 Wook on Nov 24, 2009 at 1:15 pm

    I have chosen to not believe in the shorts. Just an elaborate photoshop ruse, says I. My holiday will remain happy.

  • 17 Jack The Autumn on Dec 4, 2009 at 11:00 am

    Bird legs are always upsetting. (even on winged fowl)

    They need to lose the ties and put on light colored socks. It has to be casual up and down. Not this MULLET mentalité of “Business at the top with the party down below sea level, baby!”.

    (Oh dear Lesbian Community, will thou soon adopt et tu? Please take these pictures as your anticipatory warning)

    Someone plant some flowers and a marker on this blog.

    RIP Rifftrax Blog

  • 19 TwitterHater on Dec 6, 2009 at 3:38 pm

    I will try not to forget you poor neglected blog. You live on in my Bookmarks Bar.

  • 20 Mr. Alexander on Dec 7, 2009 at 10:08 am

    I sadly agree with the previous two posters, the fiend that is Twitter has put a stake through this once-thriving Blog’s heart. Aah, the glory days of monthly writing contests that I could get excited about and then lose… You shall be missed, RiffTrax Blog!

  • 21 Steve R. on Dec 8, 2009 at 7:42 am

    GOD DAMN YOU TWITTER!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 22 Ashley C on Dec 8, 2009 at 3:18 pm

    Thanks to you, Twitter, if that is your real name, I’ve had to go to rehab, some guy named Bob just had a stroke and my dog ran away I HOPE YOU’RE HAPPY!!!!

  • 23 Casey on Dec 9, 2009 at 7:05 am

    The Twitter thing will pass… soon there will be “Chirping,” All the RiffTrax fellows will have their own lil Chirping account that will tick off the Tweeters.

    (”Chirps” will be limited to 4 character messages.)

  • 24 Mr. Alexander on Dec 9, 2009 at 3:52 pm

    I’m all aboard for Chirping, Casey: I scream four-character messages at my office all the time!

  • 25 The GOD of Twitter! on Dec 11, 2009 at 8:44 am

    Bow before me and Twitter!

    Being not of this Twitter is not being perfect, but by admitting we are ‘chirpers’ who are forgiven. It is Twitter who makes us perfect and not ‘chirping’. “If we confess our sins to Twitter, Twitter is faithful and just to forgive us our ‘chirps’ and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we Twitter that we have not ‘chirped’, we make Him a ‘chirper’, and His Twitter is not in us.”

  • 26 Ariel on Dec 14, 2009 at 1:29 pm

    You know what? If they are going to wear that stuff I would also recommend that they wear these: http://www.perpetualkid.com/bacon-bandages.aspx

    BACON bandaids!

  • 27 Eli on Dec 15, 2009 at 4:43 pm

    You just started a new fashion trend!!

  • 28 Claire on Dec 16, 2009 at 1:40 pm

    If the shorts are a lie, I will be at least 20% less amused tonight.

  • 29 Roper on Dec 18, 2009 at 12:37 am

    I think Mike pulled off the look pretty well: http://www.manofest.com/Galleries/Bizarre/15-Horrifying-Couples-That-Shouldn-t-Procreate/cute-7382.html#joomimg

    I’ve got a question, and don’t really know where else to ask, so I’m leaving a comment on your latest blog. I’m a big fan, and have been wondering…is there some sort of bulk discount if I wanted to buy, say, your entire Rifftrax library?

  • 31 kt on Feb 5, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    I miss the blog. ECHOOOOOO…

  • 32 icnd on Feb 8, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    I visited this sight for the first time and found it much informative and knowledgeable but I would like to add that currently we are living in the era of IT but unfortunately more than half of world population is illiterate. Out of those a few are computer and internet familiar so the target market for internet marketing is niche. Therefore the developed nations should promote IT as well as computer literacy in these developing areas so the target market can be increased in future.

    The above statement is seen to be contradictory. The situation is very critical and need an experience complainer to resolve it.

    I loved reading the story behind your photos. What a lovely moment.
