Welcome, won't you?
The weekend and it's most closely located weekdays have passed, laden with Rifftrax-related riches. From Matthew J. Elliott (the Beatrix Potter of Rifftrax Presents contributors) we have a commentary for Jurassic Park III, the first Jurassic Park Rifftrax to not include Weird Al. From the main gang we have another nature short: A Badger's Bad Day. If the promotional poster is to be believed, it has an actual badger in it and is thus not a sequel to Wind in the Willows. A review for Wrath of Khan ought to be up before the end of the week.
My busy weekends often fill with offspring-related activities, keeping me away from the internet for days at a time. This weekend I missed the announcement for the Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Rifftrax, due out on April 12, 2011. Why, that means it comes out today! Maybe. Actually, it's almost close of business here in California and the Rifftrax still isn't released yet. Keep checking here, and maybe it will be before the end of the day.
Update: It's available now.
If you don't know who Vaughn Monroe was, you've probably at least heard "Riders in the Sky." And if, like me, you'd maybe only heard "Riders in the Sky" once or twice in your life, you'll probably recognize it anyway from all the times you've heard it parodied.
If none of the above applies to you, you'll know who both of them are after watching alleged fire safety short Vision in the Forest, in which a semi-famous singer sings a really famous song while a man in a bear suit suprises the singer's daughter in the woods. If that sounds weird to you, well, it is. Review here.
