A match made in heaven.Welcome, won't you?

The live online announcement/short is over. Traffic has once again all but annihilated the Rifftrax servers, but when I finally managed to load the right page, performance was smooth. The Rifftrax online experience appears to be teetering right on the brink of "functional". One would hope they've got a plan in place to handle the extra bandwidth strain a prime time audience will bring to bear.

Anyway, a disheveled Mike kicked things off by promoting the newly released The Twilight Saga: Eclipse commentary (grab it here) as well as the newly released Maniac DVD (review here). Then he announced the subject of the upcoming live show: Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny (imdb here). A montage of scenes culled from that film followed, and believe me, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians looks lucid and high-budget by comparison. Then a break, and then the short: Unto the Least of These, which, as you might have guessed, is about wild chicken conservation. A downloadable version ought to become available just as soon as the main Rifftrax site recovers.

Once again: the commentary for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is available now, and tickets for the live online riffing of Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny on December 16, 2010 at 6:00 p.m. PST ought to be available shortly.
