    This riff was a little bit better than Just A Spark.

    Wonderful job. And by the way, I'm starting to make videos to and I need a good editing system. What would you suggest? I only have windows movie maker and it kindove sucks...
  • armagod679
    Ah, yes, the PSA that tells us that us girls are horrible and vindictive and can't talk about our problems like civilized human beings.

    At least when boys are involved. At my women's college, it's a lot better since we don't have anything to fight over. Either that, or having just three hundred students makes it easier to get the facts.

    Hey, do I hear Doug with Lewis? What I'm thinking is that Frida is such a vicious venomous viper, that's for sure! (LOL 50's talk)

    I think that is the guy that plays Snowflame in AT4W that is riffing alongside Lewis, not Doug. :)


    Also, anyone but me think Mary needed a good smack across the face?

    She is kind of a bitch in that short

    Actually I think it's the guy who played the wizard and the ghost of chistmas present in his storylines
  • armagod679
    No, it's Will Wolfgram, Snowflame and the Gunslinger.
  • Sockpuppet  - My thoughts exactly
    avatar
    LOL, my thought was "Someone punch this bitch in the mouth!"
  • Epockismet  - Reminded me of an mst3k episode

    Very funny, now you just need to have little silhouetted characters in the lower right of the screen to represent the riffers :)

    Don't think anyone under 30 will get the Dragnet joke...

    Hey,nice to see some returning faces from The Snob. Centron sure looves his 30 year old teens. You gotta wonder how an IMDB page would look in those times. Somehow "Snobby Teenage Girl" in Centron production of The Snob and The Gossip doesn't sound like resume gold.

    Seriously,why did Doug stopped making That Guy Riffs? Those inter-TGWTG cross-voiceovers were a lot more fun that other attempts at riffing that have come out more recently (dun get mad,Lewis).

    @Guild Navigator: The line was used on a Canadian educational show (Square One TV) which had a dragnet bit... might be nostalgic to some, at least that's where I heard the line growing up.

    @ColeYote: Also I agree with the other posters that say it sounds like IronLiz
  • Linkara

    It's not. It's Will - he plays Snowflame and the Gunslinger.
  • Page Mistress  - To Guild Navigator
    I'm under 30 and I got it.

    Thank you dad and retro channels!
  • pomaflah
    I like hearing you and Will together, and this is funny, but again, the psa is still accurate, so it's a bit hard to enjoy.

    Uh oh, catfight in progress at the Student Officers Meeting. XD


    Meoooowww pfft pfft!

    I'm sorry, who's the second person?
  • Pregnant Orc  - Second person
    I'd place my money on it being Iron Liz.
    Haven't seen anything from her in a while.
  • Undertaker91  - to ColeYote and Pregnant Orc

    Read the comments, its Will Wolfgram. He plays Snowflame and the Gunslinger

    Good grief Frida is a malignant little troll, and the guys all sound like they have mouths full of those round glass things you buy for fish tanks.

    Also there's a weird sort of... vibe... about the two best friends.

    Gotta love the toll of virtue about the betrayed friend at the end. Like, you're not just a dick who screwed over your friend; you're a jealous dick who screwed over your extremely nice friend for no reason! Eat guilt and die!

    Well, that's the fifties for ya. I've seen a lot of fifties videos and most teenage guys sounded like that. Same thing goes with the girls' vibe. That's just how women, hell people, were written back then. I had a teacher who actually grew up in the fifties and he told us real life was nothing like on TV...just like today! :D I agree with what you said how the other friend actually went to go talk to her and the main character doesn't despite the fact they talked about it the night before. And why didn't the teacher ask the friend herself? As an adult, she should know better than to listen to rumors. She even admits to not trusting Frieda, but doesn't do anything about it. Also, why would the boyfriend say, "Pfft, girls," in front of his own girlfriend? That's just stupid.

    Solution to the problem: beat the crap out of the malignant troll bitch and hang her corpse as a warning to any would-be gossipers.

    Hey, it's the fifties...
  • Leon Real
    The names have been changed to protect the innocent? Seriously? Girl, it's high school politics.

    Then again, I may be wrong. Maybe electing the worng person to be pep club president could lead a city to fall into chaos.

    "Maybe electing the worng person to be pep club president could lead a city to fall into chaos."

    Now *that's* a short I'd watch! The kid from "Cheating" is elected Pep Club President and within days his pernicious influence has unleashed madness: Drunk drivers in plaid shirts are mowing down pedestrians. Forrest fires are breaking out all over. People are deliberately stopping their cars on railroad crossings. School dances have become Bacchanal orgies because no one is following the insanely strict rules of how to engage in small talk or how long the phone call asking the girl out should be. (In fact telephones and cars don't even work anymore because all the springs have disappeared somehow.) And all over town, shrill shrieking children are finding themselves transported from their reality to some nightmarish Lord Of The Flies Island in a Hell Dimension conjured up by an insane sadistic narrator.

    Yeah thats linkara and rob i think andd awesome riff!
  • Captain Speedbump
    Another funny riff!

    Since Will did this with you, that reminds me: did we ever find out what the deal was with that inter-dimensional cowboy stealing all the magic guns? Or is that still in progress?
  • Linkara
    avatar
    That's still going on and it's going to be resolved in two weeks.

    Yeah gossip is a pain in the ass. But damn that girl spreading it around needed a smack. All that envy and jealousy for nothing.
  • Akasora

    Isn't that gossiping girl Mary-Jane from the outsider short? So this is what happened to her once she got friends
  • The_Awesometeer
    avatar
    The jokes range from great to umm not great. But overall they get better

    I love your riffs so much Linkara! D8 please keep them coming! It makes the MST3K nerd in me SOOOOO happy!!
  • ladydragonstars
    avatar
    This has been the best riff so far imo.

    I liked the dynamic between the two of you; it removed a lot of the awkward silences and added a lot more jokes, and less time spent watching the actual PSA (which is good because we're all hear for the riff)

    It also helps that Will's voice is so dreamy :D *swoon*
  • Toucanbird
    avatar
    Oh man, I thought this was your best riff yet. You should do more with Will. You both work well off each other.
  • ThunderDave
    Will did a nice job teaming up with Linkara on this. Only thing was when I saw the ghost head I yelled "Get Me The Ghostbusters."

    what is she the wicked witch of the west's daughter ?
  • Ancel De Lambert

    It's understandable that we would not notice that that was Will, as he not once shouted "Snowflame believes your pants to be on fire!"
  • Ebalance
    They should have called this film GIRLS.
  • Sockpuppet  - Two heads are better thn one
    avatar
    I'm glad you have a second riffer in this. For some reason, riffs always seem funner with more than on person delivering them-- Maybe it's the timing, but even the same jokes coming from 2 voices instead of one just seems to work better.

    Holy fuck the boyfriend is a misogynistic dick.
    The 50s are scary, scary, times.

    Thanks for the levity.
  • spacemanfromcanada
    from the first riff i knew i was going to enjoy this. bloody FAN-TASTIC!!! spot on riffs! have to say this crap-tastic PSA is no better then CENTRY 21 CALLING but almost as fun to riff. one of my favs hands down is DUCK AND COVER. the reason this junk is not seen in schools anymore its OUT DATED!!! boys beware is one of the worst things to come out of the 50s. that and the WOMEN IN THE KITCHEN bull crap. it really is good to riff we can make fun of the stupid ages AKA THE 1950s.
