The big RiffTrax: Live event of the summer – Krull! And was it worth the wait.
This isn’t some cheap, crappy little movie. When it came out in the 80’s from a major studio, it was supposed to be a big budget summer spectacular. However, it fell way short. And by the end of the film, they also seemed to run out of money for the special effects.
However, this made for a very funny RiffTrax: Live show! I about slid out of my seat from laughing so hard.
And of course, I have some great pre-show slides to show you:
Monday’s Music Moves Me
Hosted by Xmas Dolly
Today’s theme - Songs that mention beverages in the title.
I thought I’d just go with something fun – Metallica’s version of Whiskey in the Jar. The video features a raunchy house party. (And is totally unrealistic as there are only sexy women there.)
Prompt: If you could go through the Earth and end up in another country, where would you go?

The Not-So-Innocents Abroad by Roland Yeomans
I am privileged to have the multi-talented Robert Rossmann producing and narrating my latest audio book, The Not-So-Innocents Abroad.
Robert is not only an actor, but also a talented stage director! Just recently, he directed the stage play, James and the Giant Peach.
Sadly Robert’s health is suffering, threatening his career. Roland hopes the audio will sell well for Robert’s sake.

My publisher sent photos of fans in cosplay holding my books at Supercon. Too cool!
