It’s the Earth-Friendly Thing To Do

Earth Day is upon us, a day which has considerably more meaning and practical application than Life Day. And what better way to celebrate the day, there in San Diego and here in the Minnesota Satellite Offices, than to release our riff of James Cameron’s Brobdingnagian Planet-Buster of a movie, Avatar. Say what you will about the film, it will go down in the annals of cinema history as the most successful film to feature digitally-rendered tree-dwelling naked blue people.

Although one may find it incongruous that the DVD is being released on Earth Day notwithstanding that the story occurs entirely on another planet, prompting the urge to

broaden the brand and rename the day Planet Day so as not to offend other planets with our Earthbound provincialism, and although our own planet has no fiber-optic trees or domesticated work animals with which we can commingle our tendrils, nonetheless this actual planet we live on is worth keeping healthy and in good working order.

And when we uncynically suggest that our riffs, being digital, are possibly more environmentally friendly than the six-foot-square blister pack surrounding your half-inch-square SD card, we truly hope you enjoy our enjoyment of the Very Big And Often Very Silly Film. But we’ll also suggest that if you’re looking for something far bigger, far more spectacular and undeniably breathtaking, look no further than Earth’s own blockbuster, the Eyjafjallajökull volcano.

    Ah, yes.. Majestic. Grossing a loss of a potential $200,000,000 to airlines per day. It is as if God said “psht! I can do better than that.”

    In honor of Earth Day, I’m printing this comment using recycled electrons.

    I think the Icelanders just made up that name so they could laugh at the rest of us when we try to pronounce it. Either that or we just have to say the volcano’s name backwards to get it to stop erupting, like Mr. Mxyzptlk. Which is probably the name of the next volcano over.

    A very apt comparison, Kevin! Both Avatar and the Elijahwoodjambalayaskull volcano both started with ominous rumbles, followed by spectacular fireworks, the effects spanning the globe many times over… followed by a choking, bitter-tasting malaise we wish would stop clogging our eyes, ears, noses and twitter feeds. No to be caught off guard twice, Europeans closed their airspace to the volcano, no doubt gun-shy from Avatar, perhaps the single most gargantuan “meh” our species has produced to date. Until the sequel. Avatar wanted me to love it so much, so desperately, I contemplated a restraining order after my one viewing. For the record, I muttered “Dances with Wolves in Space” on opening night, about 40 minutes in, making me among the first several hundred. But after a full viewing, I agree with you guys, it was certainly “pretty to look at.” Like a Hallmark card the size of Saturn, only just as forgettable when grandma sets it in her recycling bin. Happy Pandorearth Day!

    I bet the Smurfs can beat up these digitally-rendered tree-dwelling naked blue people without even breaking stride.

    How could the Icelanders let the Eyjafjallajökull volcano blow like that?

    Did they run out of virgin maidens?

    “must’ve tossed in bjork.”

    In that case, maybe we can plug it by tossing in Lady Gaga.

    Sheez, there you go again! Every time I go to clean up my “Favorites” list and contemplate dumping this cobweb-ridden blog, ya go and add another post!

    I think they left the blog because they found out how annoying their fans really are.

    “I think they left the blog because they found out how annoying their fans really are.”

    I think they were aware of that long before the blog.

    I’m sorry fellas, but I’ve seen Blue Ben Stiller and am now permanently Avatar averse. It’s like when I was 7 and I ate a whole can of Pringles and blew chunks, haven’t touched a cursed Pringle since. Avatar is a giant blue Pringle.

  • 15 Remmie Barrow on May 2, 2010 at 1:11 pm

    “Avatar is a giant blue Pringle.”
    I have felt the same way about all of Mr. Cameron’s films since TRUE LIES in which he had Tom Arnold (shudder) act in it.

  • 16 Remmie Barrow on May 4, 2010 at 1:20 pm

    By the way, does anyone else notice that Mr. Kevin Murphy looks like Grover from Sesame Street wearing elf ears in that poster.

    Not really. He just looks… Smurfy.

    I’m just worried about how comfortable Bill looks on top of that chicken.

  • 19 Wook on May 6, 2010 at 5:09 am

    He’s only humping chickens cause the chicken humper’s late.

  • 20 Casey on May 6, 2010 at 9:26 am

    but why did he decide to do a chicken humper apprenticeship?

    Not even a blog about the new Harry Potter rifftrax? for shame.

    So I heard that Greyson Chance did a Riff of Manos that was better than the original for his 6th grade acting class. Any comment?

    Ok guys. Avatar. What can I say. My small hometown theater was playing Avatar on it’s big screen as a late movie this past weekend. I and a friend of mine purchased copies of and downloaded the Avatar Riff from our boys, and put them on our iPods. Popcorn in hand, earphones in our ears we sat away from the small crowd near the front and watched, doing our best to stifle our laughter so as not to disturb the other theater goers. (For politeness sake if nothing else). It was super cool to do it that way. It sorta felt like we were in the S-O-L theater with Mike and the Bots.
    So, Rock on Rifftrax.

    Oh god, avatar.. Even in Rifftrax form I don’t think I can get through that one again..

    It’s a horrendous rip off of dances with wolves with smurfs and one of the worst “actresses” in HISTORY Michelle Rodriguez..

    Watch it without the 3-d and there’s NO REASON for you enjoy it..

    I can’t stand people who like it! UGH, MUST SMASH….SOMETHING…..GAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!
