Is for you to back MST3K on Kickstarter for whatever amount works for you. Here's the pitch:

I need this, guys! NEED IT.

Also, never has this icon been more appropriate and more hopeful.

I'll try to keep the pre-amble short this year, because the requests themselves tell a story. This is a Festivids request list that is as much for my mom as it is for me, as we'll see in a second.

Gamera (Shōwa series, 1965-1980) )

It's been 25 years since Joel and the bots started riffing on KTMA in Minneapolis. After a year of that, they moved to cable and into our hearts.

My sense of humor is partially defined by the wacky hijinks of this show and I love it to pieces. Watch some tonight, won't you?

Did you know that Kevin Murphy, Bill Corbett, and Mike Nelson -- in addition to continuing the MST3K tradition of mocking movies over at RiffTrax -- have formed a band? They're called the RiffTones! And they apparently compete in QuikStop Entertainment's Masters of Song Fu.

Click on their link to listen to their ode to cursing the moon for Kevin's drunken antics, Moonshine!

ETA: Ode to the Ballpoint (challenge is to start a dance craze)

(The Ballad of) Rufus Amos Adams (challenge is to use that title and write a country ballad)

Slightly out of order, unfortunately. Also, Trace is next to Joel, but he's obscured by the podium, so I didn't really get any good shots of him until the very end.

The Roomie left me her car to run errands, so that's pretty much what I did all day. First I stopped by Mom's to pick up some packages I had mailed there, including the Night of the Living Dead 40th Anniversary DVD with the Classic-Horror quote on the back cover. Mom was babysitting my niece, who ran over to give me a big hug. It was the cutest thing ever.

After that, I ran to the hardware store to pick up some materials for the Memorial Day Project. Then I spent more time and drove more miles than I'd like to admit trying to find sufficient Testors Metal Flake Ruby Red paint, as the Project requires it in large quantities.

Picked up the roomie from work, dropped her off at the gym. Instead of heading to the nearby Best Buy, I headed into Bookstar, which was a book store that I'd seen a billion times but never gone into. It looked chintzy from the outside and I'd always assumed it was a half-price used bookshop. Nope. It was a Barnes & Noble in everything but the sign on the front and the way the employees answered the phone. Even the little placards over the individual sections said "Barnes & Noble". I ended up spending *coughcough* on some books on digital photography, web design (I'm trying to get a more elegant look for Classic-Horror) and Final Cut Express.


Programmed my new Universal Remote. The old one only really controlled my stereo receiver and my VCR. This one handles everything but the Playstation 3 (which can't be helped because it receives over Bluetooth). I did have to reprogram Every Single Key for the HD-DVD player, because while the box received the signal, it thought I was trying to control a Standard DVD player and would throw up a little message on the front display that said "HD-DVD" instead of, y'know, doing something.

Edited two reviews and one Masters biography. Started working on a new fanvid for Donna Noble set to Oingo Boingo's Just Another Day.

Went to the coffeehouse that night with The Roomie to finish up some other work.

Memorial Day

Woke up early, skipped breakfast and computer to go directly to beginning the Memorial Day Project: painting the pieces of what will eventually be my very own Tom Servo puppet. The Roommate gathered them about a year and a half ago as a Christmas present, but circumstances prevented her from putting it together. Now we've finally decided to tackle this as a team. I have high hopes for its completion before she leaves for vet school in three months.

The Roomie's boyfriend came over that night and we watched Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie, followed by Mystery Science Theater: Mr. B. Natural, then Cinematic Titanic: The Oozing Skull, and finally Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II. Good times were had by all.

There's a sweet interview with Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and The Film Crew over at I didn't conduct it, but I did take the photo near the end of the article.

It was so weird being in the same room with these guys, because they sound like mellow versions of Tom Servo (Murphy) and Crow T. Robot (Corbett). Appropriate, since they, y'know, played the 'bots but still very, very weird.

Anyway. Enjoy the interview.

The main problem with watching cheesy 1950s sci-fi flicks like "The Brain that Wouldn't Die" in the middle of a crowded coffeehouse is not, as one might think, the inane chit-chat intruding on the film's soundtrack. I have good headphones to block that out. No, the problem is that I have to keep my MST3K commentary to myself. I have half-a-dozen extremely wrong-headed comments to make to such classic lines as "Our bodies are capable of adjusting in ways we've hardly dreamt of" and if I say them outloud, I will likely be thought crazy.
