I was just watching some of the old Simpsons episodes on the FXX marathon. I'd forgotten that that show used to be funny. "I won't need this High-School diploma anymore."

Lame-ass looping in "Red Zone Cuba"

Y'know that scene in RZC at the junkyard, where Coleman is demanding that Cardoza give him his ring? It's obvious that the dialogue is "looped", but... jeezus, check out that weird echo -- where in the hell did they do it? Did they set the looping stage up in Tony Cardoza's bathroom, or what?

Anyone else not know where to look during the Deep 13 segments in Red Zone Cuba? I'm sure Trace is wearing a cup or something to keep the bandages from irritating or itching, but, still... that's one clearly defined area, there.

Let me tell ya, i definitely know that I'm gonna be a film critic as an adult. Why? Because i love film more than anybody (almost). I love the smell and feel of the movie theatre. Film is a glorious thing. Even bad films.


I 'effing missed you guys!

So, I just got back from a 4 day camping trip in eastern Arizona (Luna Lake outside of Alpine. The devil's in the details, right?) - literally a stone's throw from New Mexico - no, really, you could walk up the hill and throw a rock into New Mexico... if you like that sorta thing... Anyway, apart from the 28 mosquito bites and the last minute ralphing session (btw: weed+whiskey+vodka+beer/4 hours*high altitude+too much sun = SICK - just sayin') the trip was awesome! Rained a bit on the last day too - no complaining. The fields near the lake were LADEN with wildflowers. The weather was perfect. The dogs loved to explore the woods and chase squirrels... Felt really great to unplug. No internet. No cell phone. No computer. No television... but, that also meant no MST3K. So, basically, what I'm trying to say, in a round about way, (getting to it sometime today), is that I really missed you guys! And I'm jonesing for my fix!

I think Legend of Boggy Creek II should do the trick.

ADDENDUM: Unfortunately, no - we didn't see any Bigfoot. Though we did hear an animal get ripped to shreds a few dozen yards from our tent... so, that's always fun!

It isn’t my usual thing. But this isn’t a usual down for me either. Anticipating this, Lady Unriffed and I set aside a bit for me to go somewhat movie mad. How movie mad? Well, I think I will have nearly as complete an unriffed MST3K collection as possible. If I wasn’t before, I am definitely committed to seeing this project through to the very end!

The “Missing” List remains unchanged.

307Short: ALPHABET ANTICS
311Short: SNOW THRILLS
314- MIGHTY JACK
315Short: CATCHING TROUBLE
320Short: POSTURE PALS
413Short: GENERAL HOSPITAL PT 1

421Short: CIRCUS ON ICE
612- THE STARFIGHTERS
621Short: MONEY TALKS!
621Short: PROGRESS ISLAND, U.S.A.
1009- HAMLET

I have found evidence Mighty Jack being released on VHS in 1986. There are some Japanese language DVD sets, but I’d have to invest in Rosetta Stone to try and make sense of it.

I have found a CD recording (in German!) of Hamlet, but that does me no good. Barely passing High School German doesn’t prepare one for Shakespeare!

As always tips/websites/etc are appreciated for any of these missing experiments!

Does anyone know who wrote "When Loving Lovers Love" from Overdrawn at the Memory Bank? It doesn't say in the credits and I can't find the information anywhere. I assume it was some combination of Mike, Kevin, and/or Bill. It's not really important, but I want an answer! *slaps fruit away*

Hey. So like a lot of other people here I'm sure, I deal with insomnia, and melatonin isn't knocking me out tonight. It's 3:20 (nowhere to be tomorrow thank goodness), just brewed me some tea and I need a good ep to fall asleep to. I know this thread has probably been done before but... What episode makes you SLEEEEEP? Other than Space Travelers because dear God the horror. Might have to rev it up anyways.


Cripes, I could've done that better...!

How many times have you watched a movie on MST3K and thought, of some aspect of the movie, "Cripes, I could've done that better, and I didn't even go to film school!"

Being a visual arts guy, for me, it's cinematography and camera work. I've lost track of how many times I've watched a scene in a movie and thought jeezus, I could've done that shot better with my $125 Sanyo flip-cam and that tripod I bought at Ritz Camera!

For instance, Monster A Go-Go is full of those moments. I honestly believe that I -- and my grand total of one (1) semester of film study in high school -- could've composed, lit and shot every scene in that dungheap ten times better than the supposedly "professional" cinematographers working with Bill Rebane. Granted, that's not saying much -- seeing as it's a Bill Rebane picture -- but, still...

The Sinister Urge has a bunch of shots like that, too -- like that police station cutaway shot, an agonizing twenty-second static long shot of police cruisers rolling leisurely in and out of the station parking lot ("This is why Ed Wood gets 'final cut'!") and another agonizing twenty-second shot of the tall, dumb wannabe actress chick carrying her suitcase across a parking lot and putting it into her car ("Film it all, Ed!").

I got the poor ol’ Mistie blues,

I got the poor ol’ Mistie blues,
Cause don’t nobody understand.
They watchin’ “Housewives of Some Damn Place,”
Leaving me a lonely man.

Well now if you have to ask,
It’s MST3K blues.
Said if you gotta ask.
Got me MST3K blues.
From top of my lacrosse mask,
To the bottom my Underoos.

I laugh when I see forklifts,
And rock-climbin’ folks
But people give me odd looks,
It’s only me who gets the jokes.

When I say “time for go to bed,”
My baby says “go and watch your show.”
I say “time for go to bed,”
She says “Go to bed with Ted Servo.
You got some Mistie-understandin’
‘Cause your key don’t fit my do’.
… No, not no mo’.”

We have had too many tiffs
Because I’m always making riffs.
When she puts “Titanic” on again.
It’s riff or jump right off a cliff, I tell ya.

Some day I’m gonna hop a train
Just like Big Stupid and his pal.
In the not too distant future
Just like Big Stupid and his pal.
To the happy Mistie paradise
And get myself a Mistie gal.

Terror From The Deep!

So, a week or two ago, I was watching Blood Waters Of Dr. Z "for the first time again", and noticing that the slouching failure of a monster in that flick made the famous Gill Man's attempts at revenge in Revenge Of The Creature look like a Jules Verne story.

I also realized that there were quite a few movies on MST3K which starred large, horrifying mutated aquatic creatures, so I have to ask: What's your favorite MSTied movie starring a large, horrifying mutated aquatic creature?

Mine has to be the legendary Gill Man from Revenge Of The Creature (and the original Creature From The Black Lagoon). He's mean-looking, vicious, takes no shit, is the coolest-looking, and he has his own music, f'cripesake... dah dah daaaaaahhhhh... dah dah daaaaaahhhhh... DAH DAH DAAAAAHHHHHHHH!
