Hello, Comic-Con 2010!

June 9th, 2010 by Bill Corbett · 76 Comments

Ladies and gentlemen, it has been forever since I’ve written in these digi-pages. Mea culpa. A combination of too much work, too much social media, a so-called “family” and my new semi-pro ice dancing career has kept me away from the Rifftrax Blog. That, and wolves.

BUT.

When I heard that Mike, Kevin and myself were invited back this year to do a gigantic night at the San Diego Comic-Con (approx. 700,000 seats!), and that our host would be none other than our good friend, the high priestess of geekery Ms. VERONICA BELMONT — well, it’s was time to fire up the WordPress.

Comic Con 2009 2 1 2

Here is the 411:

RIFFTRAX LIVE!

Friday July 23rd
7PM to 8PM
Room 6DE

Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett (RiffTrax.com, Mystery Science Theater 3000) return to Comic-Con to perform another live, hilarious riff to a classic short! The panel is hosted by Veronica Belmont (host of Tekzilla on Revision3 and Qore on the PlayStation Network). Join the riffers for fun, laughs, and the latest news from RiffTrax.com, the site where MST3K-style humor meets mainstream movies, TV shows and vintage shorts. At RiffTrax.com they don’t make movies, they make them funny!

Friends, I have nothing to add except: come join us, wolves be damned!

    Wheee! Can’t wait to see you guys again! I can certainly evade wolves for that.

    [...] I’m going to be hosting the Rifftrax panel again this year at Comic-Con in San Diego, so if you’re going to the conference, make sure you carve some time out to come see us Friday night! Here are the details: [...]

  • 3 Remmie Barrow on Jun 10, 2010 at 1:19 pm

    I did not know you had a feud with wolves. Did you steal a rotting deer carcase from them or something?

  • 4 Libby on Jun 10, 2010 at 1:39 pm

    If only you guys did events in NE Ohio. I’d be all over that.

  • 5 Roper on Jun 10, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    Will this feud between doughy middle-aged ice dancers and wolves ever be resolved?

  • 6 bullwinkle on Jun 11, 2010 at 4:50 am

    hahahahahah! I’m sure Bill appreciates being called “doughy and middle-aged”…

  • 7 karen on Jun 11, 2010 at 8:40 am

    i wont be in town then. i assume it will be 4 sale later?

  • 8 BEMaven on Jun 12, 2010 at 9:40 am

    Yes, you have been away from the blog a considerable span, Mr. Corbett… and somehow I can’t help feeling a little bit responsible for the lapse.

    But teaching professional ice skating to ravenous timber wolves seemed like such a good idea at the time.

    (But, if it’s any consolation, the government rejected my grant application.)

  • 9 Bill Corbett on Jun 13, 2010 at 7:48 am

    “Roper on Jun 10, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    Will this feud between doughy middle-aged ice dancers and wolves ever be resolved?”

    Kindly die.

    Everyone else, you can thank this charming individual for another nine months before a blog post.

  • 10 Roper on Jun 13, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    Mr. Corbett, I apologise. To the readers of this blog, in the hope they’ll be more posts here,this is my last comment.

  • 11 Sparkly Vampire on Jun 13, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    Yes! Wolves be damned! WOLVES BE DAMNED!!!

  • 12 Bill Corbett on Jun 14, 2010 at 7:26 am

    Roper, Roper, Roper. Beautiful, sweet Roper. Thank you for the apology. No need to go away. And / or die.

    I do have a writerly, after-the-fact regret. though. THIS was the response to make:

    “I don’t think I’m all that ‘doughy.’ But I guess you can find out when you SMOOCH MY ASS.”

    Sophisticated, literate, and… yes, poetic, in its own way.

  • 13 chrismartindeed on Jun 14, 2010 at 2:51 pm

    “Sophisticated, literate, and… yes, poetic, in its own way.”

    That’s a fetching description of one’s ass, I must say.

    I daresay mine is nowhere near as poetic.

  • 14 Roper on Jun 14, 2010 at 4:25 pm

    Bill,Bill, Bill, you are a mensch. Truth be told, I never did want to go away and/or die. Muah.

  • 15 TheDorkLord on Jun 14, 2010 at 4:47 pm

    I certainly hope the room is larger than last year. I was fortunate enough to get in, but I had to use… questionable methods to get my sister into the over-capacity room. It was so worth it!

  • 16 Tork_110 on Jun 18, 2010 at 2:08 pm

    What are the odds that you guys will be there next year for those of us who couldn’t afford to go to this one? I know it’s waaay to early to ask, but I feel like I should attend one of these things before you guys decide to move on to something new.

  • 17 Ryan on Jun 20, 2010 at 10:11 am

    Are you going to have another fan suggested Rifftrax?

  • 18 chrismartindeed on Jun 22, 2010 at 7:56 am

    And do we get to offer wardrobe suggestions to the team, just like last year at this time?

    I only ask because they now make Sailor Scout uniforms in full figure sizes.

  • 19 Meltha on Jun 22, 2010 at 9:59 am

    No new articles, so I had to post this here. Have you see what these fools have done to BACON!?! http://bacontoday.com/colored-bacon/

  • 20 Sir Garrick on Jun 24, 2010 at 7:38 am

    I’d love to come to ComicCon, but not this year.

    Even so, I think I have come to the point in my life where I need Rifftrax more than I need booze. Not that the two are mutually exclusive, far from it.

  • 21 Sir Garrick on Jun 24, 2010 at 8:15 am

    Oh and Mr. Bill Corbet, you and Kevin Murphy need to take an afternoon sometime, bring a microphone and a guitar and make a recording of your lovely little song “It’s a Trap” that you performed at w00tstock. I would totally buy that mp3!
    It’s just so damn catchy.

  • 22 Hopturn Twotape on Jul 1, 2010 at 8:00 pm

    I’m so glad to be able to get new stuff from you guys. good luck on future endeavors, and thanks for keeping your special sense of humor going.

  • 23 Amy on Jul 2, 2010 at 1:47 pm

    I am so sad I can’t be there! This is the first year since you guys have been there that I wont be able to come and say hi to you guys! (i was that chick dressed like a pirate….yeah….i know….) Hopefully someday I will have money again….

  • 24 Brian O on Jul 2, 2010 at 9:52 pm

    Hey guys? I was wondering about something. I have in my possession a copy of the ACEG, which I obtained through considerable searching (and finally found on eBay a year or so ago). Considering how long out of print this book is, would you, Mike, Kevin, Bill, have any problems with my scanning it and putting it out on the internet as a PDF file?

    I know the legal issues and all, but am curious if it is possible, because frankly, there are a TON of new MYSTies who obviously cannot get their hands on a copy, due to its current scarcity. Would I need permission from all involved, or just a few, or should I do it just because it’s preserving a historical publication in digital form, a’la Project Guttenberg?

    I’m probably opening a can of worms asking permission, but I suppose it’s better than not asking permission, and finding a subpoena in the mail after the fact.

    No money will change hands, I have no intention of making a buck from it, but would like to preserve a bit of history by doing it. If y’all say no, I’ll respect your wishes, but I do believe it’s worth doing, because right now, as I said earlier, it’s mainly sold as used stock in auction or Amazon used books.

    Thanks for reading my message and if you care to, responding and keeping my butt out of court.

  • 25 Dave on Jul 7, 2010 at 7:05 am

    700,000 seats? I’m pretty sure there aren’t that many people at the con in a day. Did you get that right?

  • 26 Christine on Jul 8, 2010 at 6:18 pm

    To second a previous comment, are you doing a fan-suggested Rifftrax? If so, I would like to make my suggestion here ’cause I can’t make it to San Diego:

    the David Bowie herion and glitter-fueled, Labyrinth.

  • 27 branden on Jul 19, 2010 at 3:00 pm

    can you bring a copy of THE ROOM rifftrax at San diego comic con. The actor from the room woul like a copy of it.

  • 28 Brian O on Jul 22, 2010 at 5:39 pm

    Now THAT’S a good way to get sued by the guys who made The Room, they probably expect it to be premixed into the video (Like I’ve heard about people doing on the internet so… Much… Lately). Or even just sue over the commentary (such as what they threatened to do with That Guy With The Glasses).

  • 29 Jigglypuff on Jul 25, 2010 at 10:02 am

    Sadly, I didn’t get in even though I’ve waited over a hour in line. Next year I hope Mike and the boys get Hall H due to the demand of Rifftrax. Next year I will wait 3 hours to make sure I get a seat.

  • 30 Kalad on Jul 27, 2010 at 6:37 pm

    Panel was awesome. Live Riffing was amazing and hilarious. Terrible…ly good suggestions from the crowd for possible upcoming Rifftrax. I even briefly chatted with Bill Corbett on the stairs and I bet he thought I was gonna kill him or at least try to harvest DNA somehow. It’s why I love Comic Con!

  • 31 Mister Seven on Aug 6, 2010 at 8:56 pm

    I almost didn’t recognize Conor sitting on on the left under all that hair. Had no idea he grew it out.
