Twilight of the gods

I watched "Twilight" the other night. No, really, I did.

But, it's not quite what you think.

Yes, I'm talking about the movie with the whiney, sparkly vampires. But then again, I'm not.

Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

Bought Twilight a while back. Wife loved the books, so we got the movie. Got it, not only on DVD, but also on Video on Demand for the TiVo, so she can watch it without having to walk over to the DVD player.

But, I took the DVD, and ripped it with Handbrake. (I only use this to copy movies to TiVo, not for any illegal purposes.)

Then, I bought the RiffTrax commentary.

Then I opened iMovie (yes, I have a Mac) and mixed the RiffTrax audio on top of the movie soundtrack.

Then, I exported the combined movie and copied it over to the TiVo.

Yes, that's an awful lot of trouble to go through. But I can back it up and replay any part and it all stays in sync. So it's worth it to me.

So, after doing all that, I watched teh Twilight.

It was funny. Really, really funny.

I've already put together New Moon and the RiffTrax commentary. That'll put me right back in the doghouse.

And, I'm looking forward to watching my favorite movie of all time. Yes, I'm talking about Casablanca. I can hardly wait to listen to them riff that.

Those RiffTrax guys are gods! They ought to have a TV show or something.
