........the hell?

Nobody told me when I signed on to this thing that I would be forgoing my chance at not one, not two, but three copies of Incognito Cinema Warriors XP on DVD
:angry:

That's right, I'm so upset about this that my long-dead, skull-attached conjoined fetal twin is quivering up and down the side of my head.

Anyway, doesn't one's status as a podcast host lapse after a month sans podcasting?

You can get Open Office for free and use that.  You just have to save it as a .xls file.

So, I just went through the DVD for the first time.

Does anyone else think it's funny that they were so pressed for special features that they included an anti-drug PSA?

Damn, if there'd been prizes for Batman & Robin I just might have beat Steve-O for the coup-de-ville. That's what they call it, right?

This whole movie kind of reminded me of that Star Trek where Kirk and President Lincoln battle Genghis Khan and that Klingon.

PRIZE ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

With this project, we said we would start the tradition of prizes. We'll be giving away four prize packages this time around, with the hopes that we can make things bigger and better every time around.

So, here's the benchmark that we're setting right now.

1. First, we'll be giving away a prize to the Best Running Gag used in the film, as defined by "joke involving three riffs or more used at separate points during the duration of the film". The winner of the "Prefontaine" Award will be honored with a copy of Incognito Cinema Warriors XP on DVD.

2. Second, the Uncle Pennybags Award is reserved for whoever should end up with the largest percentage of the final script. Basically, whoever gets the most jokes in the final script. (Ties will be broken by random draw.) The winner will receive a copy of Incognito Cinema Warriors XP on DVD, and a 10 dollar Rifftrax Gift Certificate.

3. Finally, the Zinger! Our most prestigious award will be bestowned upon the funniest line in the script, as decided on by myself, Chaos, and Junkyard. After ripping each other to pieces during a tense, three week debate about something as subjective and polarizing as what constitutes "the funniest line", we will emerge and give the winner a copy of ICWXP on DVD, a 10 dollar Rifftrax Gift Certificate, and a 25 dollar Amazon Gift Certificate, sponsored by NeenerNeener.net.

Thanks to our buddies at Neenerneener and ICWXP for helping out with the prizes, please give them your love!

FINE PRINT: Contest ends March 1st. No purchase neccessary. All submissions will be judged by Chris Hanel, James Whistler, and Victor Vernon ("The Judges"). All decisions of the judges are final. Performers, producers, and podcast hosts for Riff Raff Theater are ineligible. Offer void where prohibited.

Is the 4th prize a mystery, or a typo. 



Or is it the "We'll give Bratpop one so he shuts up this round" award.  LOL.

I dunno, I personally think Mark Twain needs some crapping on.

Yeah, but that's what Jonathan Taylor Thomas was for. Twain's had enough.

LEAVE MARK TWAIN ALONE!!

Started on the script.
Every ill considered literary reference is like a knife twisting in my chest.

LOOK, WE KNOW WHO DORIAN GREY IS, DAMMIT! YOU DON'T NEED TO SAY "PICTURE" FOR US TO GET IT!

ps- I was going to point out the terrible, "Call me Ishmail" line, but it turns out that it was in the original graphic novel, used in an inferior situation. Alan, you got 1-Upped.

To be fair, the film's target audience probably has no fracking IDEA who Dorian Gray is. :P

I just finished dowloading Open Office.  Looks like a nice program.  I'm really looking forward to trying out the template. 

I saw the movie for the first time last night.  Definitely lots of possibilities for riffs.  This could be fun!
