Fran Lebowitz…

…Will thank you very kindly not to post pictures of her and pretend they’re images of Mickey Dolenz or Shane McGowan. Please. And now if you don’t mind, she’s going to find Shane and have a cigarette.

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 [...]

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 [...]

Added to blogroll: Bacon.com

February 4th, 2008 by Bill Corbett · 44 Comments

Since we have more bacon-related posts and references than the average site (evidence: here, here, here (sorta), and here [last paragraph]), I thought it was high time for a little synergy.It seemed especially fitting since the Rifftrax Blog’s original purpose — the promotion, discussion, and general appreciation of HATS — has become a bit [...]

Weather Macho

January 29th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 74 Comments

Yesterday in Minnesota it was forty degrees. The crusty gray snow languished into slushy gray porridge. Last night freezing rain sprayed an Oklahoma-style ice glaze over the road, sending cars spinning friction-free into each other like a bumper pool table populated by sport-utes. All day today snow will polish the ice to a [...]

What the Hell is Going On?!

January 15th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 19 Comments

Man. I step away for two minutes and I find yet another conspiracy simmering away right under our very noses.

This is Dame Edith Sitwell, Woman of Letters, esteemed poet, critic, novelist, droll defender of literary modernism. She died in 1964 at the age of 77….Or did she?

This is “Trent Reznor,” as [...]

Rockin Da Haus!

January 11th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 22 Comments

 
I’m always on the lookout for the exciting new talent on the hip young youth scene of today, and damned if I didn’t find something entirely new: THE SKATOPHILES!

This music is so sharp it can pop a truck tire! Not only do these guys rock, but they rock in one of their guys’s bedrooms! [...]

George Lucas and Me

January 8th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 21 Comments

Since we’re heading to the Bay Area soon for another Rifftrax Live, I thought I’d better work on my George Lucas impression.

Hmm? What do you think? I know I need to work on the hair. The hair’s tough, believe me. I tried clown white, no dice, so I dodged it in [...]

Trendwatch – Year-End Wrapup

December 31st, 2007 by Kevin Murphy · 19 Comments

It’s been a great year for trends in general, which show no signs of trending down. This year saw a near-record number of tendencies become avocations, several skipping the penchant stage and quickly becoming full-blown trends. Let’s take a look at the trends that were the trendiest, and which trends will set the [...]
