So the economy is in the crapper, and peeps are strapped for cash. Does that mean you can’t be having an entertainment filled evening on the cheap? No! Why the frack would you think that? Skip the wallet depletion practice for a change, and try on two of this little junkie’s favorite ways to have a good time “in-style.”
If you are a fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000, you will go bananas for Rifftrax. RiffTrax are MP3 tracks you play while you watch a funny dvd–well they become funny once the Rifftrax begins. It’s a step in a different direction from MST–they’re written and performed by the stars of the award-winning TV series, but they go beyond the B-movie fare into mainstream Hollywood blockbusters like Twilight, Ocean’s Eleven, Dirty Dancing, and Casablanca?!! You can watch preview clips before you buy, so get thee to the web site and prepare to laugh your ass off.
Here are my favorites (of the many I own):
- 300: Perhaps the all-time best riff, in my opinon. “This is a sparkler!” (those in the know, know)
- Spiderman (all three): Sorry, MJ. I just love laughing at you.
- Predator: Ahnuld, you should just expect to be riffed at all times.
- Independence Day: Jeff Goldblum, you may be a wiley gent, but not enough to sneak past two brilliant riffs (see also Jurassic Park)
Normally, we save web related posts for Sunday, but I am a responsible little junkie, and I want to give you the chance to sleep this one off. This site is basically a collection of movie-themed drinking games. LJ contributor, ZRose25 made the discovery this week, so I will be trying one of the following promising games:
(Some of these may only be advisable with shots of H2O. Drink responsibly, kittens)
- Twilight: An excuse to watch Twilight…again! Wee!
Watch out for: Drink every time someone gazes at someone else.
- There Will Be Blood: Oh DD Lewis, you are going to get me messed up
Watch out for: Drink anytime anyone is shown with oil on them.
- Alien vs. Predator: Requiem: I’d watch this either way!
Watch out for: Drink every time someone dies or is physically injured.
- Mannequin: Best movie ever!
Watch out for: Drink every time Hollywood yelps.
Prost! Slainte! Na zdravi! L’Chaim! Kampai! Salud!…and have a good weekend!
