Look at our shorts

November 20th, 2009 by Mike Nelson · 44 Comments

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, [...]

Brit explains… the British constitution (A Guest Post by Blogger Extraordinaire Brit)

Ah, America, America, God Bless America! We British invented America, of course, back in medieval times. But, as with so many of our inventions, we couldn’t work out how to make any money out of it and in the end we got bored and [...]

Forever? Really?!

July 31st, 2009 by Mike Nelson · 15 Comments

Awhile back RiffTrax hosted a little competition to see who out there had the best riffing chops. The winners, the very lovely and talented Doug Walker, Rob Walker, and Brian Heinz from thatguywiththeglasses.com. These brave men waded in where no one else dare go, to the grim innards (yes, you can wade into innards, let [...]

Tommy!

June 15th, 2009 by Mike Nelson · 40 Comments

A friend (thanks Rick!) suggests that Tommy Wiseau could easily play the keyboardist/flautist when it comes time to make the biopic of these guys (who, I should point out, turn in a performance almost as weird as Tommy’s in The Room.)

What an eccentric fellow

June 4th, 2009 by Mike Nelson · 31 Comments

Blogger extraordinaire (and bad wax figurine enthusiast) Brit brings to us the rich interior life and, shall we say, offbeat personality of this man, John Portsmouth Football Club Westwood:

John Portsmouth Football Club Westwood wears a novelty Pompey top hat, a blue and white dreadlock wig, a blue-check vest, shorts and a pair of tattered blue-check [...]

Post, um

June 1st, 2009 by Mike Nelson · 19 Comments

Come on, Youtube!: The Wall Street Journal had a delightful and sad article on the decline of Grape Nuts that they titled (as you can see) No Grapes, No Nuts, No Market Share: A Venerable Cereal Faces Crunch Time. So far, so good. But alas, neither the original Seinfeld routine that the title pays homage to, nor [...]

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?

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 [...]
