Did I miss an announcement?
« on: February 01, 2008, 04:46:28 PM »
I just received an email about a new short being available- Act Your Age. I can buy it, put it in my cart, download it even. But there's nothing about it here, or on the front page or in the "Discuss an individual Rifftrax" forums. DId this puppy slip out or are the Rifftrax folks just a bit slow today?

Well, just in case you're like me and can't find the "download the whoel thing in Divx"  option, the unriffed short may be found here:

We have the DivX version in your On Demand area, and the mp3 of the commentary under your My Files area, for you who "Fear the big DivX spectre."

Same thing ;)

On a serious note, though, we're listening, which is why we offer the mp3 when we can. We also may or may not have a trick up our sleeve for the next short. Stay tuned.

I downloaded it, and at the same time divx asked me to download the newest player.  Somewhere in the process the file lost cohesion and ingested itself, but Rifftrax has Johnny on the spot Torgos.  Stay gold!

I never got a email - the first notice I had was when the new posts about the short popped up.

I got the e-mail (it was in my spam folder----- stupid Yahoo mail does not learn very well).

That was hilarious!

Did anyone else wonder why the father from Family Ties was a school principal?

Aha.

And it's not fear, it's...distaste.

You're supposed to WATCH it, not eat it.

Got the email.  Watched the short. 

Child counseling techniques were hell of a lot different in the fifties.  I'm surprised the principal didn't just punch him in the stomach and yell, "You're a puss and you'll never amount to anything!"
I thought I was Dale.

Well, being one of the few people who still access the internet using a tin can, a rock and some string, I appreciate the MP3 option.  The DRM-laden DivX locks up my computer and won't play right for anything.  The little hamster in the wheel can't run that fast, I guess.

Here's the other thing you'll need:

Already got it from the Prelinger Archive.  Thanks, though.
