Shorts and Compilations

The meaning of all things is '42'.Welcome, won't you?

Another multiple topic day:

1) The subject of Wednesday's spontaneous live pay-per-riff Cooking Terms and What They Mean has been released in all its prerecorded glory. Grab it here.

2) In DVD news, The Best of Rifftrax Shorts: Volume II has been released as well, compiling such gems as One Got Fat, Beginning Responsibility: Lunchroom Manners, Each Child is Different, Why Won't Cathy Eat Breakfast/Petaluma Chicken, Act Your Age, Safety: Harm Hides at Home, Coffee House Rendezvous, Are You Popular and Good Heath Practices. No disturbing CGI riffers to worry about. No DVD-exclusive shorts either, which is nice, because that means I don't have to buy it to be a completist. (My tiny amount of discretionary income thanks you, Rifftrax!) Quality-wise, the selection is miles better than the Volume I, and it's only $9.95 to boot. In summary, you get funnier shorts at a better price. If you don't have these already, I highly recommend you pick them up.

3) In CD news, Rifftrax has put together four of compilation discs containing MP3s of their older commentaries. There's a superhero collection, a dumb action movie collection, a blockbuster collection and a Star Wars/Star Trek collection. Each disc costs $19.99 and contains seven commentaries. If you haven't bought any of them yet, then this is far less than what it would cost you to buy them separately. Get them by clicking on "Swag" and then "Goodies" on the site's navigation bar.
