Let's Interview Mike Nelson

Nash hosts a call with Lindsay Ellis, myself, and some guy from some puppet show that I hear was popular, Mystery Science something or other.

Linkara, the Chick AND Mike Nelson?!

TOO MUCH AWESOME FOR THIS WORLD.

This was nice to see. The Nerd, Linkara, the Snob, Spoony, and the Critic are for me like the next generation of what MST3K started. Cool to hear you guys converse.

I was wondering if you 2 would do anything else together. Not what I would have expected, but I still like it. :)

Fiery Little One.

So you got to interview one of your biggest influences in comedy. That is success my friend.

"How dare he make fun of the theatrical masterpiece that is Transformers 2 Revenge of the Fallen!?"

That was not a still image Mike Nelson just doesn't move.

All jokes aside ya'll asked him some of the question I was actually curious about. I'm curious to see what they do with some of the movies that came out this year when they get the chance to riff them!

This is weird, because I just saw Trace & Frank at this year's Dragon-Con. Their panel was killer!

Awesome interview with one of the most well-known comedy figures of all time.

Good morning, Linkara.

Very pleasant interview. Thanks for sharing.

Does make me wonder, though...if Rifftrax could riff on movies they like, are you SURE you couldn't do something comedic with comics you enjoy? I know you don't want to spend a half hour saying, "This is good. That's good too."...but what about gently poking fun at something you take pleasure from?

I mean, I LOVE "Watchmen", but I could easily make fun of Rorschach wearing women's clothing on his head, Nite Owl II's tendency to not notice catastrophes when sexually aroused (mushroom cloud, Rorschach's death), etc.

I'm just curious what you'd sound like when you're tearing into something WITHOUT trying to kill it.

Okay, I'm done. Enjoy your weekend.

"...some guy from some puppet show that I hear was popular, Mystery Science something or other."

Yeah, he's probably just a nobody! It's not like he was an inspiration to the Spoony One, the Nostalgia Critic, and various other internet celebrities...

Hey, wait a minute!

(LOL. I'm just making fun.)

He he, Lindsay's totally fan-girling out. (Lewis seemed less flustered with Kristana Loken!) Love it.

But seriously, does a shallow racist polemic like Avatar even deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Casablanca or Dark Knight? (Or Highlander for that matter?)

Great job though guys, I envy you.

Linkara if you do an iRiff you'll have a customer in me. So you have one sale right off the bat.

I must say: Well done sir and madame. Well done indeed! Mike seems like an alright dude.
