LevithorRiffs Presents White Amunition

http://blip.tv/play/hL8FgcmiPQA%2Em4v

Sorry for the quality, I found it like that. I also had to censor something by cutting the scene out, I hope that it's "seamless" enough to not notice.

Rifftrax break

Hey,
I just learned how utterly messed up my literature's plot cannon was, so I'm going to be spending a while fixing it up, and tying up all of the loose ends. With me luck, I'm writing through over 1,700 years of cliff notes! :S

Levithor Riffs presents - I Want to Be a Secretary

Alright,
I'm trying to put out shorts either every weekend,
or every other weekend, whichever works best for me.
Plans for full length movies are different, I'm still
doing those sporadically, but hey, at least with the shorts
I can build charisma and make the end product of the
movies a lot better.

Anyway, I Want to Be a Secretary dates back to September 19th of '09.
It was the first short that I wanted to do, but I found it
kinda tedious, so it sat on my HD for a while, until I got
sick of looking at it and having it mock me for being both
unfinished, AND taking up space, so I finished it up, and
found the process to be far easier after having a couple
ephemeral shorts under my belt.

Anyway, here's the Secretary vid.

Oh, I wanted to avoid sexism jokes for the
most part in favor of being more silly.

Bonus:
Here's what I put on Thatguywiththeglasses.com to attract posts:

Alright, my second TGWTG blog showcases a short that has been mocking me since day seven of my Rifftrax operations. There it sat on my measly and decrepit 50 gig HD, all sixty four megabytes of it.

Of course, what do I do with riffs that intimidate me? Why, I honorably let them sit around as I work on different things as the need to finish it festers and grows in my mind. I let the movie files sit and further fragment my poor HD as I giggle helplessly and watch a cat messing with a cardboard box on Youtube, ignoring that sense of incompleteness in the back of my mind.

The problem though, is that it was there... mocking me, saying that I would be able to riff Manos before attempting that vile Coronet short that I had chosen (keep an eye out for my Manos riff, by the way). I had had enough and I grabbed the short by the horns and ripped it a new one, thinking about how I would explain my story with less cliches than I was coming up with while writing.

Know what happened?

I finished the short with a rattled mind, exhausted hands, ridden with carpel tunnel, and a divine understanding that nine times three is twenty one. It was a hard battle to riff that fifteen minute short, but I came out on top, claiming victory for the made up name of Levithor.

The battle that was not hyperbolic in the least was won... but what new challenges await on the horizon between syndicated re-posts of my earlier shorts? I see movies with cheap costumes, bad choreography, starfish aliens, and celebrities with horrid rolls as far as the eye can see.

I may have won the battle with this short about a pre World War II woman looking for then-sensible job opportunities, but the war of riffing bad movies has just begun... and i weep for the horrors that they may bring...

Saffronia 2009



It was a quick song that I made a remix of using MTV Music Generator, or Music 2000 as some may know it.

Enjoy. :)

Return of the Kung Fu Dragon 15 Minute Preview

http://blip.tv/play/hL8FgaS%2BfgA%2Em4v

Ahh, my first Rifftrax submission. I found it on Youtube, and tore it up after I learned that it was in the Public Domain.

Yes, both guys riffing are me.
I need to refine Nate somewhat and either make him sound less breathy, or improve a voice that's closer sounding to Eric Idol that a breathy Mr. Howell.


I invented Nate because I wanted to improve my British accent - geographically confused as it is - and my, now okay with it, fellow "actor" John Carter (Captain Quasar & Lady Elastica in Attack From Space) was not interested at the time.

Anyway you can buy the whole movie here if you're so inclined. :)
Enjoy. :)

Levithor Riffs Presents: Good Eating Habits

This is Good Eating Habits.

I gave in...

I avoided blogs and twitter and such for a long time, mostly because I figured that blogging and Twittering ammounted to telling people when you had gone to Ralphs (or Kroger, or Acme, or Food-4-Less, or what have you) and what you got there, or the ever more popular topic of ones mating habits and the tragedies behind them that no one cares about.

Anyway, much like Linkara, I made this as a source for telling peeps about the releases for my Rifftrax, literature, or some behind the scenes aspects, the latter I might start with.

Right, here is some of the equipment I use for my art, literature, and Rifftrax:

My Com'pooper (damn you Rugrats!) is:
a 32 bit Windows XP machine with SP3,
Intel Celeron 330 single core processor,
1.5 gigs of DDR Ram,
GeForce FX 5500,
60 GB Hitachi DeskStar hard drive
Toshiba DVD drive SD-M1212
Lite-On CDRW SOHR-4838S
Intel PC Camera pro (CS430)
Gigaware 43-220

All on a eMachines T3624

My software is
Gimp 2.6.8
Mozilla Firefox 3.5.7
Audacity 1.2.6
Daz Studio 3.0.1.1.144
Bryce 5.5.12.40
Premier Elements 2
Microsoft Word 11.0.8169.0

With all that in this day and age, it's a wonder how I'm so prolific.

Anyway, watch for Rifftrax, my fiction, and other such goodies in the comming future.

Later,
TG
