Damn, was that fun.  Rifftrax Live was beamed nationwide Thursday night with only a few satellite glitches along the way. The show rocketed by for those of us onstage, and the live theater audience in Nashville was the kind you want to take home with you.  And as reports around the country have come in, […]

May 26th, 2009 by Kevin Murphy · 28 Comments

Jonathan Coulton is what’s so damn funny.  Paul and Storm are what’s so damn funny.  Put them together, on a Rifftrax Presents Super-Cool Special Riff of the iconic geekwork TRON, and the funny risks breaching its containment field and releasing a wave of hyperfunny that could threaten countless galaxies… with laughter. Here’s a sample of […]

St. Patrick’s Day, ruined

March 16th, 2009 by Conor Lastowka · 31 Comments

Forgive me if I seem curt this morning, it’s just been a very long weekend.  A guy spends all of Saturday and most of Sunday designing his outfit for tomorrow’s St. Patricks Day parade, coming up with an all-new, original look, and just as he’s sewn the final stitch, a friend comes along and forwards […]

…Hopes you have a good weekend.  He also wants you to know that he loves you all.  He loves you very, very much.  I mean, wow, he loves you so much, it’s almost indecent.  Strike that, it is indecent.  But if loving you is wrong, Skeletor doesn’t wanna be right. Ah. you laugh.  See, if […]

In Solidarity

February 12th, 2009 by Kevin Murphy · 64 Comments

Having just returned from a retreat to Mexico, I’m delighted to see that Michael J. has kept his word and embarked on a solid month of bacon stupidity.  All week I broke my fast con tocino, and this morning in his honor I cooked up a batch of Nueske’s, which contrary to some east-coast prudes […]

Song Fu-Hoo Hoo!

October 28th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 20 Comments

After a four-round battle against some wonderfully talented masters and contenders, aided by the regrettable early departures of two of our nemisiseses, and having endured a hailstorm of  hurt-mail the like of which has gone unseen since the Great Flame Wars of ’93; and having dragged ourselves over the finish line, panting, much in need […]

Schnappi in English on the Ukelele

August 12th, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 9 Comments

My friend Richard is spending several months traveling over in Europe, and has been spending the past few weeks visiting relatives in Germany.  Needless to say, his young cousins were amazed with his shocking familiarity with Schnappi, and even more amazed that he had friends at home who were asking him to bring back any […]
