rifftrax live – 2015

The fine folks at Rifftrax have set up a Kickstarter to raise money for four live shows in 2015. They wound up hitting their $75,000 goal in less than 24 hours. Now they’re working toward their stretch goal of $250k. They’re past the halfway point with 24 days to go. Among the movies they plan to riff is Sharknado 2. I’m hoping that if they hit the 250k-mark, they’ll give us a fifth movie, like they did in 2014 (Anaconda, it was awesome!).

If you’re still not clear on what this whole movie riffing thing is all about, here’s a sample of one of Rifftrax’s latest efforts, for sale on their website. It’s a riff on a piece of 80s sci-fi cheese called Alien Outlaw. One of the stars is B-movie cowboy Lash La Rue.

rifftrax – worst movies of 2014


As 2014 drew to a close, the fine folks over at Rifftrax conducted a poll to determine the worst movies of the year. With over a quarter million votes in, here are the Rifftrax’s Worst Movies of 2014. More than a few of these films are big-budget “blockbusters.” I wonder of there’s a lesson in that for Hollywood… For the record, I have not seen any of those movies, not a one.

If you’re still not clued in to what these Rifftrax people are all about, here’s a sample of their latest, riffs on the movie Wonder Women:

programming note

Due to my computer deciding to crap the bed yesterday, posting may be light over the next few days, depending on when I can get access to the wife’s machine. For some reason, she seems to think that completing reports for work is more important than my blogging. Insane, right?

In the meantime, I’ll be forced to do three things I really hate:

1. Shop for a new laptop.

2. Spend money,

3. Deal with Windows 8. We bought a new computer for my youngest to take with her to college, and it has Windows 8. The one thing I learned from this experience is that I really, REALLY hate Windows 8. Really.

…and a side of spam


It seems the spammers have been busy lately. My email spam filter is filling up faster than usual. Here’s a sample of some of the various subject lines, followed my commentary.

Top Replica Watches Online Worldwide Shop

They’d better be top replicas. I don’t buy just any old knockoff. It’s name-brand fake name brands or nothing!

Watch this video and women will adore you

Sorry, not buying it. I’ve watched like a gazillion videos, and women still don’t adore me. However, watching enough videos can sometimes get women to ignore you. And now that I’m married and have two daughters, I find that can be a good thing.

Angelina thinks your sexy

Big deal. She thinks Brad is sexy, so her taste in men is suspect. Also, her grammar could use a little polishing.

3 questions that get all women excited

1. Do you know what species of big hairy spider that is on you shoulder?

2. (Peering over her shoulder out the restaurant window) You have collision insurance on you car, don’t you?

3. Hey, did I mention that my convicted felon, stalker ex-girlfriend lives in your building?

Huge designer watch replica sale going on Now

Huge is good. The huger the better. I want people to see I’m wearing a genuine Roflex from a hundred yards away.

Hey You!

You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? Then who the hell else are you talkin’… you talkin’ to me? Well I’m the only one here. Who the fuck do you think you’re talking to?


Dollars to donuts we’re not talking about a marriage license here.

I wait for you

Keep waiting. I’ll be along any day now.

Why don’t women want you to read this email?

Because they work in the IT department and they know the email is infected with beaucoup viruses?

Trick for getting laid

Trick? I knew it! Magicians get all the babes.

How any ugly guy can get chicks

A technique referred to in penal codes the world over as “kidnapping”.

Sleep with a married woman that wants you now

I was thinking they were referring to my wife, but the “wants you now” part shot that theory to hell.

Sleep with multiple new women every week and be a “player”

Yup, that’s what I’ve always wanted to be, a “player.”

Women want this video banned from the internet

If it’s Psy’s “Gangnam Style”, I’m behind their effort, 100%.

Swiss replica Rolex watches

Because no one makes better fake designer watches than the Swiss.

Message Not Junk  *Viagra Cialis and Levitra all 80% Off!*

Hey, thanks for letting me know it’s not junk. It’s getting so hard to tell the legitimate online discount pharmacies (with Russian domains) from the fake ones.

what’s up with that?

My wife had her post-surgery follow up appointment last week. The doctor said everything is looking good. They put a walking cast on and cleared her to return to work this week. She went back yesterday. So far, so good. She still can’t drive (it was her right ankle that she broke), so youngest daughter has been tasked with driving her to work in the morning. Bringing her home is a rotating responsibility, I guess. Today it’ll probably be me. There’s still a lot she can’t do, so I’m busier than a one-armed paper hanger.

I hope everybody has a hap-hap-happy Wednesday. It’s payday for me, so that’s the one bright spot in the day. Maybe I’ll celebrate by having a cookie.
