In the not too distant future, somewhere in movie theaters, Mike Nelson and his RiffTrax pals could be making fun of Twilight live for your entertainment. That's right, the RiffTrax team wants to do another of their simulcast live events where they make fun of a movie, and they want that movie to be Twilight. To do that though, they have to acquire the rights to the film, which can be expensive. They've launched a Kickstarter campaign that is already over three times its goal, but that still might not be enough to make this happen -- and I really, really want this to happen.
What do Jonathan Coulton, John Hodgman, Wil Wheaton, Paul and Storm, Bill Corbett & Kevin Murphy from Rifftrax, Molly Lewis, and Mike Phirman have in common? Two things. First of all, they are the best and brightest in the ever-important worlds of geek music and comedy. Second of all, and I hardly even believe this myself, they are all entertaining on the same Caribbean cruise, taking place from Jan. 2 to Jan. 8, 2011. The cruise, called JoCo Cruise Crazy and organized by Johnathan Coulton, promises to be the best vacation anyone will have ever gone on in any of their lives.
