CandidGamera vs. RiffTrax

I will be looking at a couple of comics to review later this evening, but I need to discuss what happened last night.

I attended RiffTrax Live. Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett of MST3K fame performing live via satellite in 400 theaters, mocking Ed Wood's Plan 9 From Outer Space. But that's not all - no, they included a couple of short comedy pieces from Rich Kyanka of SomethingAwful, and Jonathan Coulton performed 'The Future Soon' and 'Re : Your Brains', and most importantly, the guys riffed a short - 'Flying Stewardess'.

The evening was marred only slightly by the massive thunderstorm that interrupted the satellite feed to our particular theater, causing us to lose 5-10 minutes near the end of the film. The owner of the theater was kind enough to give us re-admit passes to get in to see another movie free, to make up for the loss.

I hope they do something like this again - awesome, awesome experience.


  1. I actually bought a few MST3K DVDs that haven't arrived yet. I have heard that they're good stuff.
