Our latest RiffTrax VOD, DINOSAURUS, has an Irishman in it who is so Irish—HOW IRISH IS HE?—He’s sooooo Irish that… we got to make lots of Irish jokes while at the same time mocking the filmmakers for resorting to cheap stereotypes! Win/win!
One of these jokes references the ‘love’ letters of renowned author James Joyce, which I was blissfully unaware of until a friend called my attention to them last year. You may want to read up on them in order to properly get the joke in the RiffTrax. Trust me, the lifetime of horror spent imagining the author of Ulysses doing any of the things he writes about is worth the 7/10s of a second chuckle you’ll get from understanding the joke.
James Joyce’s letters here, RiffTrax Dinosaurus here!

I mashed up the postgame speech by David Belisle, the coach of the Cumberland, RI Little League team, with the music from Al Pacino’s speech in Any Given Sunday.

After 8 years, RiffTrax finally has a kickass animated intro song, courtesy Jonathan Coulton and Harry Partridge. My favorite part is identifying all the weird characters we’ve done over the years when they show up at the guy’s house. Any party where you can sit on a couch in between The Guy From Harlem and the Ice Cream Bunny is one I’d want to attend.
