Tension mounts in the RiffTrax Live: Godzilla war room

Thanks to all who attended our Rifftrax Live: Godzilla show. 
An anecdote, if you’ll permit me.This photo was at a script meeting that took place two days before the show and our rented room was adjacent to some sort of Real Estate meeting or something. Writer Sean Thomason and I ducked out for a coffee and saw, as it turned out, the keynote speaker yell at some poor hotel attendant carrying a tray, “WHERE’S THE BATHROOM?!?!” in a tone that suggested, “Where did you tricky, lesser people hide the facilities?” or “Why, when I, a man who owns cufflinks that cost more than your yearly rent, needs to urinate, does a urinal not appear before me, clad in gold leaf, you whelp?!”Anyway, we took a break about four hours later and passed the room in which he was STILL speaking; three hundred people who looked as though they could not endure another miserable second watched as this clown droned on about something that sounded to me like, “Business business business, circle back, drill down, business business, change our head-set, business, contract for deed, business!”So that’s the kind of guy who deserves to have bathrooms NOW in places he expects them to be, not in other places, damn it!

Personally I enjoy the fact that this photo causes me to resemble Paul Masson-era Orson Welles.

The Onion just published the entirety of Mody Dick as a viral article…

This is so wonderful.

Hey advertisers, there’s an old jazz saying: “When in doubt, lay out.” Sometimes you can just go with a picture and have any text be purely informational. Do you get what I’m saying? I’m saying this ad is dumb. “But thyme the food word sounds like time the time word!!” I know. I know. Ssssshhhh.

Paul gives VERY SAGE ADVICE! TONIGHT AT NINE!

We now have a theme song.  It’s a delightfully ass-kicking ditty by Jonathan Coulton.  
We have an animation to go with it.  Created by the crazy talented Harry Partridge.
Together they are fantanbuism itself.
The animated Theme song will premiere at our Rifftrax Live: Godzilla Show Thursday August 14th, playing at a theater somewhat near you.
I’m terribly excited for this - I love theme songs.  I think everything, indeed everybody should have one. And now we do, so I hope you come see it and enjoy.

Mmmmm, fried mice. It’s a Minnesota Classic.

So yeah, it’s summer. We eat flowers. Got a problem with that, paleo throwback freaks?
