Linkara Riffs: The Gossip



Linkara is joined by Will Wolfgram (Snowflame, the Gunslinger) to riff on a short about how you should always trust clearly-evil people who spread gossip. ‎

How DARE she be human outside of school!

Pfft yes. xD These are amazing.

Will is a welcome addition, though I feel like there were more jokes in the ones with just you, like you were trying to avoid talking over each other at any point. Which is understandable, and I'm not complaining, just pointing out that I noticed it.

very nicely done, but... it's a little chilling to hear Will use a regular speaking voice.

I swear, I was half-expecting SNOWFLAME IS DISAPPOINTED IN YOUR COMMUNICATION SKILLS.

Dear Mr. Lovhaug,
I wish to post a complaint about the Joke about "Senile Canadian Films" Many of my friends are Canadian filmmakers and only few of them are senile.

Sincerly.....who the hell am I again?

P.S. You must admit we are more tolerable than the middle age flux-between eidetic and forgetfulness films.

actually the druggy thing might not be too off. i am not completely sure or not, so correct me if i am wrong, but i do believe at the time of the psa that they still actually had cocaine as an ingredient in coke sodas. think it was before cocaine was discovered to have far more extreme properties than previously thought

god damn though, how many more of these crass psa do you have? i mean i can get some of these psa, even dating, but a gossip one?

You and Will work well together. I agree with ackbarfan that this needs to happen more. How did you two meet?

digital d said...

Will should do snowflame for one of these.
And Linkara and Will should do more together

I love these riffs and I watch all of them, but because of my personality, while I find most jokes humorous, it's not often that I actually laugh out loud at them. But I fucking lost it at the "Taylor Swift: the early years" comment. Very well done. :-D

Nice Riff Lewis and Will :) you guys should do more of these :3

Wow that chick made me want to smack her, 'well I'M just telling what I SAW.' People like you caused me much pain and grief in high school, kindly walk into a wall, repeatedly.

The riff however of this was AWESOME! Was great to have Will participate, would love to have him guest on more of these (and Liz if she's got the time, I know she's uber-busy with school.)

"How dare she be human outside of school" How dare she be human at all! Clearly nobody else in this film is.

thorondragon, cocaine was removed from Coca-Cola in 1903.

When I was in elementary school they were still using mimeograph machines to make copies. The output was like a black and white copier, but the text was purple instead of black.

Meant to comment on all of these riffs /way/ sooner (College! *shakes fist*), but yeah, these have all been awesome! Always nice to get bonus stuff from you (and from Will, too! =D)

Hope we hear more of these in the future, and hope these successfully buffered your revenue for the month =)

Dave said...

Maybe it's just me, but Will sounds a lot like Joel Hodgson when using his normal voice.

When I saw that logo, I was hoping for a David Bowie joke... or at least a Sam the Eagle joke.
Oh, well, can't have 'em all.

Then, when she started with 'the story is true, only the names have been changed', I expected a Dragnet joke...
Then you did one!

Wait... she's writing this to her teacher, and she's changed the names? How could the teacher possibly not know precisely who she's talking about?

There weren't as many riffs in this one as I was expecting, but I guess it's a little hard to get a word in edgewise, with all that gossiping going on.

I have to admit, the one thing that would have saved this "short" (almost 14 minutes? Seriously?) for me would have been seeing that maliciously-gossiping girl (I forget her name,) get a smack upside the head, but I guess that wouldn't fly in the 40s, or whenever this was.

Also, call me crazy, but people in films like these seemed to have so much life and natural charm, compared to people in more recent films, who are often pale, skeletal and drained-looking, whether it's a zombie film or not. I'm so not kidding.

Oh, and dresses FTW.

Knowing the Gunslinger is almost like Linkara now, am I the only one who imagines he and Linkara-in full coat-and-hat regalia-sitting down right after the Gunslinger arc ends to riff crap?
