We Are The World

March 19th, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 29 Comments

A year or two ago, I made a video where I re-enacted Game 6 of the 1986 World Series using characters from the classic Nintendo game RBI Baseball. The Japanese, of course have taken this to the next logical level and commissioned a team of extremely talented…singers? Impersonators? Nut cases? To [...]

Wizard of Oz Melting Scene “re-imagined”

March 18th, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 12 Comments

Rewatch the Wicked Witch (*SPOILER*) Melting scene from the Wizard of Oz, and tell me this: If it were to be remade today by a contemporary big budget director, is there any way that the segment at 1:24 would not end with Toto taking a doggie leak on the smoldering robe?
Now that’s good family entertainment!

It wouldn’t be St. Patricks Day without…

March 17th, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 17 Comments

My all time favorite youtube video. Yes, more than Schnappi. More than Grape Stomping News Reporter. More than Fat Korean Girl sings karaoke “Money” song, (Just barely.)
 

The eternal question of our time: Who else has seen the Leprechaun, say yeah?

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 [...]

Brother Theodore

March 12th, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 13 Comments

He’s no longer with us, but I would have loved to have Brother Theodore as a guest riffer. I was just introduced to him today, and found it kind of odd at first. But by the end of this monologue, I found myself wiping tears off my eyes with the cuff of my [...]

Political Ads Round 2

March 3rd, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 38 Comments

The current crop of political ads proved too riffable to be contained by just one blog post, so we decided to do more. I can only imagine that as the ads heat up and get more vicious, the potential for hilarity will skyrocket. For now, if you missed part one, check them out [...]

Dr. Evel

January 22nd, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 6 Comments

One summer in between years of college, I somehow got kind of good at diving at our neighborhood pool, which had a high dive. I could do an inward and a one-and-a-half, and eventually lost enough sense to try a double flip. In order to build up enough speed, you essentially had to [...]

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! [...]

Jing Jingeling

December 19th, 2007 by Conor Lastowka · 11 Comments

The other day, one of the networks broadcast “I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown”, which, not surprisingly, rates as the second worst Christmas Special I’ve seen this month. Obviously, creating a Christmas special that doesn’t reek of cash-in or space filler is a difficult task, so when I discovered that everyones favorite [...]

Europe=Country

December 3rd, 2007 by Conor Lastowka · 5 Comments

It’s sad that in this day and age, when a friend sends you a video clip in which a game show contestant mistakenly believes that Europe is a country, my first thought can be “Eh, that’s really not as good as that other clip in which a game show contestant mistakenly believes that Europe is [...]

Dancing Mickeys

November 29th, 2007 by Conor Lastowka · 3 Comments

My family is taking a vacation to Rome in three weeks. The sights to take in will be numerous: The Sistene Chapel, The Spanish Steps, The Colosseum. My mom is quite excited about the spots she secured on a tour of St. Peter’s tomb that she describes as “Highly Coveted”. My [...]

Another Failed Scheme

November 29th, 2007 by Conor Lastowka · 3 Comments

The most recent Scheme that my friend Greg convinced me to participate in was to make videos for his friends TV show. A former co-worker had started working on a new TV show which essentially sounded like America’s Funniest Home Videos for the internet. Not an original idea by any means, and a [...]
