: Anyway, this week's Outside Stuff selection
: is..."RT Live: Reefer Madness"
I really don't need to describe the movie, do I? It's been widely panned as a thoroughly exploitative and inaccurate anti-marihuana (spelled with an "h") parable with all the subtlety of a punch on the nose.
The live show is hilarious, with the guys riffing on all cylinders. They also include three of the funnier shorts they've done: "More Dangerous Than Dynamite", "At Your Fingertips: Grasses" and "Aesop's Frozen Frolics". They also have two very odd shorts from Rich "Lowtax" Kyanka that were OK. Definitely one of their funnier outings.

: is..."Gamera vs. Zigra (Show
This first try at this particular Gamera effort has the same problems as other KTMA shows, as in the ad-libbed format results in a number of quiet stretches in the riffing. Still, the jokes they made are pretty funny. And this is a pivotal episode, as we finally see the Mads outside of the opening titles.
Unfortunately, the fan-made disc I have of this experiment conked out on me about 3/4 of the way in, so I can't judge the whole episode. I'll see if I can fix it for next time. Still, at least I was spared from more of those annoying kids.
So, did you guys watch these, too?
Watch out for snakes.
