Wow, what a trip. Just got back from the airport, pooped as all hell. First of, Iowa City is a really nice town, at least during the day (if there's a secret night hour that the swarms midget amputee ass rapists come out to play, I wasn't around for that). It's very much a college town, which means lots of trees to read poetry under and lots of hackey sacks flying around.

The show was A LOT of fun. The show started with a funny voice-over intro, the first in Riff Raff history, and it really set the the mood. The riffing was great. A few dead spots, a few jokes fell flat, but I'd say about 90% of the jokes got roars of laughter. And, of course, Steve-O wrote the best joke again.

Before the show started I got to meet David and Steve-O, and they're both a lot of fun. Steve-O is an enigma. He's smart, funny, quick on the ball, and looks like a Sears cataloge model. However, he is not Trek savey. Through intermission, Steve-O was standing between David and his friends when they started citing random Star Trek facts, and Steve-O has this clueless expression on his face that was priceless. "Welp, beer, you're my only friend right now."

I'm really glad I went, and I can't wait for the audio version.

No, really, I can't.

Where'd I put that gun?

We're pseudo-sell-outs. :P

Ironically, I had a much easier time coming up with jokes for this then I did for a much worse movie, LXG. ???  Not that this means any of my jokes made it in this time, but I know it FELT easier.  Still not sure why.

Did anybody save the list of contributors?  I was curious if I got any riffs in this time.

I save everything.

The last time I saw the script (a couple of days before the show), nobody had been cut completely out. So as far as I know, everyone who contributed got at least a couple of lines in.

Maybe you took it to bed, just like Will Smith's character did.

It was never entirely clear how he lost his left arm in that film.  I'm guessing he shot it off in his sleep.
