Adding To My List

Went to Riff Trax Live last night. It was a blast!

They opened with footage of the theater in Nashville, showing the crowd and what not. Then the riff crew came out and did introductions and assured us this was all really live and anything could happen or go wrong.

We then watched the short The Flying Stewardess. It was an awful short about how to be a stewardess but the riff crew made it oh so hilarious.

They then gave away an IPod.

We then watched a commercial for the Flour & Mill convention. It was hilarious and created by the guys over at

We then had 2 songs from Jonathan Coulton: The Future Soon and Re: Your Brains. It was fun having a zombie sing along with the all theaters across the nation while Kevin Murphy tried to act like a zombie.

We then had another somethingawful commercial for BerryWatch, a security system for your strawberries, blueberries, etc.

Then the rifftones came out and sang "Plans 1-9 from Outer Space".

Finally we had the riffing of Plan 9 from Outer Space. It was fun watching the riffers get tickled at certain points during the movie. The movie is so bad, you can't help but laugh.

A really fun night and I would encourage you to go next time if you missed it. There were a few technical hiccups. We lost the live feed a few times, but only for a second or two.

I guess I can add another Great Moments in Al History to my list:

1. Met Snoopy
2. Fed Shamu the whale
3. Saw Zsa Zsa Gabor in person though no one believes me (or was it Eva)
4. Rode the Scooby Zoom
5. Saw the naked cowboy and some guy covered in tin foil in time square
6. Met Bruce Campbell
7. Mannheim Steamroller concert.
8. Midnight showing of Star Wars Episode 3, opening night.
9. Weird Al concert.
10. Riff Trax live.
