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 [...]

Bad Song of the Week

June 17th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 64 Comments

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 [...]

I found these at the airport:

Actually they’re delicious. Best balls I’ve ever tasted. They make a great gift.

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 [...]

Bad Song of the Week

June 2nd, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 42 Comments

Recently I commissioned my niece Laurel to comb the airwaves for the very worst in popular song, what Lucille Ball might call “poopular.” Laurel is exceedingly qualified for her task, being a young college student who commutes to school and work and listens to local radio stations offering Solid Rock, Real Country, and [...]

Favorite Places from Space, Part 3

May 20th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 19 Comments

O’BRIEN’S PUB
4646 Convoy St.
San Diego, CA 92111

View Larger Map
One of the reasons I dislike living in Minneapolis is that I am, door to door, 1,976 miles from O’Brien’s. This unassuming little pub in a strip mall featuring a Crab Hut and a Tapioca Express is about as humble as a bar can be, yet [...]

He Was a Very Good Frank.

May 14th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 21 Comments

Died ten years ago today. As a singer, I feel I have some measly credential to say that he had a hell of a voice. I can’t vouch for whether he was a nice guy or a jerk, I never met the man. But I can tell you that a lot of horn [...]

Eat Your Vegetables.

May 13th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 17 Comments

Dear Mr. Corbett:

Allow me to introduce myself. I’m actor/vegetable Nick Notcolli. I invite you to eat me. Remember, I’m part of your healthy diet, which consists entirely of you eating me. I hope you have a big appetite.

BILL adds: Bravo, Kevin. Your beer has been well and truly earned. [...]

Dinner! Who’s Hungry for a Busnip?

May 13th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 13 Comments

Only because some of you seem to have a weak stomach regarding our penchant for cross-celebrity mutations, I present the American Purple-top “Gary” Busnip hybrid (Corbett cultivar). With a stronger, more pungent taste than other varieties, the Busnip is commonly baked, occasionally steamed , but perhaps most popular when smashed, spiked with good-quality vodka, [...]

Genuine Hidden-Camera Video of My First Date, Ever.

April 6th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 17 Comments

 
 

Of course it’s me on the left. And yes, “Desperado” was our song. The relationship didn’t last; I can’t be sure, but I think she wanted to hurt me.

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 [...]

A Ringing Endorsement

March 17th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 9 Comments

I’m not one to toot our horn around here at Rifftrax (unless it’s a nose flute, but more about that later) but today we received a very nice review from Veronica Belmont, Host of the webcast Mahalo Daily and voted Sexiest Geek of the Year.
This is flattering on many levels. First, as a woman [...]
