BOOMER’S MOVIE REVIEWS: Beverly Hills Chihuahua

October 7th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 34 Comments

Occasionally my dog Boomer feels compelled to review a movie, generally when that movie includes a dog or dogs, and this fall’s releases promise to keep him busy.
BEVERLY HILLS CHIHUAHUA:  No Paws (out of four)

Okay, let’s get this straight:  Chihuahuas are not dogs.  They’re long-legged mutant rats developed by Nazi scientists in the 1930s and [...]

Jar Jar Like Me

July 28th, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 7 Comments

Despite my mom’s Hot Dog picture getting destroyed in the voting by that happy-feeted sailor I still wore my Jar Jar Shirt downtown to our live show on Saturday. Throughout the whole experience, which was described by various friends of mine in attendance as a “laugh-o-rama”, “laughfest” and “this is what you do all day?”, [...]

My First Con Kiss

July 25th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 47 Comments

I have now kissed Darth Vader. In public, before God and everybody.
Before you ask, I’ll just say it: He’s a gentle, beautiful man. He smelled of summer lavender blossoming in the fields of Givenchy. His helmet flaps, so delicate, his control panel, so powerful. Moments after this was taken, I swooned. [...]

We are at Comic-Con. God help us all.

July 24th, 2008 by Bill Corbett · 30 Comments

July 22nd, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 4 Comments

While attending The Con, be sure to take the short hike* to the Borders on 6th Avenue:

Because while Keanu Reeves’ presence is surely to be the most buzzed about thing at The Con, and the Dark Knight exclusives are sure to go fast, you won’t want to miss the Buy One, Get One [...]

On to the Con!

July 21st, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 33 Comments

It’s Comic-Con time, and the folks at Legend Films are busily prepping our own Mike Nelson for his appearance at the Rifftrax/Legend Films Booth, and of course for Rifftrax Live Saturday at the gorgeous Balboa Theater. It’s no easy task – Mike has been broken down into his component parts, shrink-wrapped and packed into seventeen [...]

I’m Worried About Bill.

March 26th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 20 Comments

Folks, please join me in my concern for fellow Riffer Bill Corbett. A series of seemingly unrelated events has been strung together by his latest bizarre missive renouncing, of all things, bacon.
It started as a lark, a curiosity really; last Saturday morning when I was preparing to cook some lovely bacon, our pup Boomer began [...]

ResembleFest Results…Fest.

February 20th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 24 Comments

First of all, thanks to all of you who feel that I may or may not resemble one person or another. Without you, this exercise would merely be annoying and self-indulgent. After asking you to suggest people that, in spite of my best efforts, I look nothing like, you sent in thousands (dozens) [...]

I Am Not Randy Bachman. Period.

February 8th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 88 Comments

Okay, Let’s get something straight right away: I’m not, nor have I ever been, legendary rock guitarist Randy Bachman.
Never sang “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet,” Don’t know the words to “Let It Ride,” can barely fake it through “Got No Time.” I don’t play guitar very well at all. I’m not [...]
