    A song about zombies, the future, and a group song about the other eight failed plans.


    The riffling was good for the first half. The sheer awfulness of the film made me lose consciousness during the second.

    But they riffed on an old flight stewardess training video for the opening which was so much better.

    Saw this tonight and thought it was fantastic. My new favorite riffing, right above Space Mutiny. The guys were on point and it was pretty cool to know it was all live.

    EDIT: Also thank you thank you thank you jwalk, if you didn't make this thread I never would have known about this.

    Our tech issues were limited to a few hiccups in the live feed early on, but otherwise things came out okay.

    The Future Soon would have been better-received if more people in my theater knew who JoCo was and he wasn't doing it acoustic with practically zero introduction.

    At least we got enough people singing along with Re:Your Brains to make that fun.

    The short in front of Plan 9 was great and I thought they did a fantastic job of riffing the movie. The movie is just plain bad to begin with and then comes totally apart at the seams during the second half. Repeated footage, infinitely-re-used props and stages and all sorts of crazy shit. I would not have been able to sit through it if the guys hadn't done such a fine job keeping it entertaining during things like exposition.

    There was a woman and her adult-aged daughter sitting next to us, however. The woman was a very sour-looking, trashy sort and her daughter initially seemed like a very jolly-yet-morbidly-overweight 20-something. They were a little too vocal during most of the presentation but then half way through Plan 9 they began to fight very audibly. The daughter started swearing at the mother and punching her and demanding she "say that again to my face" repeatedly. It was distracting us a great deal from a movie that should have been fine with the audience's added sound track.

    Soon after the blows began, other theater-goers began to shush the two, which gave me enough courage to break my silence and tell the woman and her daughter to either save it for later or take it outside.
    I have never had to do this before but I was at my limit.
    The girl tried to protest, I politely told her that she was in a public place and needed to act like a goddamn adult and she left immediately in response. Her mother stayed the rest of the performance and laughed her way until the credits.

    I enjoyed myself. That was my first time watching Plan 9 and I am shocked that movie managed to get made. They could not have done a more hilariously-bad movie if they had been trying.

    Afterwards I took my friends out for awesome hot wings and two pitchers of Magic Hat and now I am in a good mood.

    The band at the Chicken Bone (awesome wing place and alright bar) was doing cover after cover of bad 90s music. Earlier on in the night they did a cover of the theme to Saved by the Bell and then later shocked me by playing a rendition of the title track from the movie That Thing You Do.

    It's just that I'd have to watch it in a group.

    I rarely watch movies on my own.

    I lack a sufficient quantity of nerdfriends for most of the stuff one usually thinks of as super-dorky.

    There are a great deal of movies I have not seen. Classics. I'm workin on it. Sarah and I have a Netflix account and will be ratcheting it up in the new place once she's done getting her 2nd degree or whatever smart ladies do with their time.

    Bitch is gonna be a doctor before I have a steady career-type job.

    I know another lady who is talking about getting her advanced degree. Granted hers is cooler because she could become a mad scientist. I could just examine your books and defend you in a tax fraud case. That's not nearly as exciting.

    Before going in to the theater, my buddy and I were pointing all the folks who were clearly there for rifftrax.

    At one point we saw two dudes walking together, one was wearing a Link hat, the other was wearing a kilt.



    The reason I will never go to a Jonathon Coulton concert, as much as I love him, is that I need to avoid THOSE kind of people.

    honestly, I thought that Lowtax's ads were the weakest part of the show.

    He just pushed them too far. Too many degrees of separation from reality before the audience has bought in, and it's just impossible to connect to.

    Sometimes it bothers me that horrible people also like the things that I like.

    But when I listen to Space Doggity, I cannot deny Coulton's genius.

    I have the best sense of humor.

    Lowtax tried to place absurd behavior in absurd settings. That's a dangerous thing to do, and he didn't get it right. It happens.

    which ones have you heard?

    maybe I can reccommend you some better ones.

    the aforementioned Space Doggity is an amazing piece, IMO.

    Kenesaw Moutain Landis is also one of my favorites, but it might not hold up so universally.
