BAD SONG OF THE WEEK: “Lonely”

August 24th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 23 Comments

Once again, we comb the airwaves to bring you the music you don’t want to hear. This week:
AKON: Lonely

Yo…all. This one goes out to all my players out there, who sleep too heavily to hear their girlfriends banging around the loft, packing all their belongings and vacating the premises; and who then drown their [...]

BAD SONG OF THE WEEK: Deluxe Edition Volume 1

August 6th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 61 Comments

It was easy to focus on Devendra Banhart as bad artist of the week; his songs could fill out an entire calendar. But to pick one single song as our week’s portion of yuck was excruciating. Witness for example one of his signature songs, performed here on Jools Holland’s show. Enjoy the [...]

“Bad Song of the Week” has been away for several, on summer vacation from bleeding ears. We now bring it back as my bad-savvy niece Laurel (and now several of you) continue to supply us with what’s the worst of the latest and the latest of the worst. This week:

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. [...]

In order to ready ourselves for the onslaught of geekdom, we’d like to share some sketches of our favorite con-going archetypes.

Spearheaded the Walworth County, Wisconsin Save Firefly movement (3 members).
Thinks Doctor Horrible is “longish.”

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 [...]

Thanks again to my niece Laurel, who combs the airwaves to find the juiciest musical nits. Apologies in advance for the ad accompanying the video. This week:
Gretchen Wilson: REDNECK WOMAN
 

Believe me when I say I don’t look down on Gretchen Wilson, primarily because if I did she might hit me with her baby [...]

Bad Song of the Week

June 9th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 27 Comments

Once again, My niece Laurel has kept me posted on the very worst in popular music. This week:
Jibbs: Chain Hang Low

The term “shawty” takes on a new connotation in this video by a rapper whose name reminds one of a nineteenth-century English butler. As far as I can gather, the song involves [...]

RiffTrax + CBS = Love

May 20th, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 21 Comments

So, as part of our ever growing mission to expand the empire of RiffTrax into every facet of the media (after successfully getting the air conditioning and bathrooms working again in our offices after thieves stole the critical parts over the weekend) we’ve decided to partner up with the CBS RADIO Digital Network!

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 [...]

I Found It. It’s In Newfoundland.

February 21st, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 32 Comments

Here it is. In case you didn’t know, or had just lost interest in it until recently and were wondering where it is. Who knew? It’s about sixty miles west of St. John’s, just off the Trans-Canada Highway on the scenic Baccalieu Trail. It’s small, but quite pretty, and a pleasant distraction from the [...]

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) [...]
