So sometimes during an episode, Crow will say something, and then, if you put the volume up and listen closely, you'll hear the same line repeated quietly (and it also sounds like it's 'far away') and Crow's mouth moves accordingly. Any ideas what that's about?

Today's episode of Elvira's 13 nights turned out to be the beloved Hobgoblins. I'm guessing that aside from Sir Seth most of us haven't seen it without the riffing.

What shocked me was just how much was cut out for the MST episode, and how deftly they edited some of the less than savory material from it. Believe it or not, the movie was even MORE sleazy before the Best Brains got their hands on it.

Anyone else watch it tonight?

I'm A Bellerian - about 20 hours ago

I think we need a thread for those who wish to know the names of (pre-existing) songs that are either referenced or parodied in the show.

I'll start: Does anyone know the name of the song being parodied at the beginning of (Rifftrax) "Frankenstein Island" when Bill starts singing "Makin' love out on Frankenstein Island!"...?

Crappy Fake Science Babble Death Match!

First Spaceship To Venus vs. Giant Spider Invasion:
which has the crappiest fake science babble?

We all know Crow's editorial position on the stupid, pulled-out-of-the-ass astrophysics gibberish in First Spaceship To Venus, but I'm just now finishing a viewing of Giant Spider Invasion, and wondering if Venus meets its match in that llab scene with Barbara Hale and that dude from Batwoman where they crap out such a sublimely worthless heap of fake astrophysics blather that all I could think of was that one astronaut's soul-crushingly dull changing-the-energy-back-into-mass-in-the-big-atomic-golf-ball rap in First Spaceship To Venus. Both of these scenes really hurt me, man, and I didn't even major in a science (I went to friggin' art school, f'cripesake).

Past few days, I did a little riff-recording. I got Yucca and Bloodbeast up to 300 riffs each. I have also started a tradition that I hope spreads to others. If you look at my riffs, you will note that a lot of them have a comment attached. I am recording origins of Riffs. Not all, because some are too easy to spot, and some are just jokes based on situation in movie. But song quotes, literary references, movie references (including movies actually watched in other episodes), some commercials, I am recording the origin below the riff (not as part of the riff). I think our riffs could be used as a database for people looking for origins of quotes.

So I was sitting in the airport today, thinking about the plane I had to catch, when a voice came over the loudspeaker, catching my attention right away. "Attention: will McDonnell, Crow, and Hodgson please come to the blahblahblah".

I did not hear what the blahblahblah was, but I wished I had. I would've loved to dash over there and see who had the awesome sense of humor to page for Crow and Hodgson in an airport. I definitely geeked out a little and was somewhat disappointed that no one else's heads were searching about for "Hodgson and Crow". And of course, part of me was hopeful that Joel was there, but I doubt he was. That would've just been too cool. :P

Thanks to James GreyWolf's posting the missing info on FB, I've gotten some important feedback about those GH shorts from a Maureen Carney:
"Most stations have either moved or remodeled, and haven't keep tapes. (I know that to be the case with the then ABC affiliates in Manchester, Boston and Providence.) Some networks required affiliates to return kinescopes, which they then destroyed. UCLA has a full run of GH in their holdings, but they're not available to the public."

This time to Leslie. Leslie was kind enough to give me some of her time to proofread a letter to Best Brains. After her look-see, I felt confident enough to send it to Mallon. Fingers are crossed.

It is almost becoming a cliche, but I really REALLY, could not have gotten this far without the thoughtfulness and advice of this group.

Rusty Shackleford - 4 days ago

A few years ago I used to have a...well, I'm not sure what to call it. Like an overlay?? It was a picture I had on the computer, and it was the theater silhouettes of Mike and the Bots from MST except with the screen area where the movie would be was cut out and transparent so I could bring it up over the RiffTrax movies I watched and it would look like M&tB were there riffing on the film. Unfortunately I lost the pic a while back.
Does anyone know of anywhere I could get something like this from without having to make it myself? And if not, any advice on how I could make another one for myself? The one I made was so long ago I can't remember much on how I made it except that I thought I simply used black (maybe) to fill in the screen area so that the RiffTrax movie would show through when I played it on VLC Media Player, but that doesn't work anymore.

Where, specifically, and/or how are you watching your MST3K tonight? I'm watching it on my laptop over a 0.24 Mbps connection from an Arby's in the shadow of a tree by a creek in a parking lot in Knoxville, TN in the back of my 2-door car while I curl up to sleep. Road trippers still need their lullaby!

So, I'm putting together a letter to send to Best Brains to see if they can help track down the 'missing' items for my Unriffed collection. I've been looking the net over, and all I can find as a contact is their generic Contact Us form at the webstore. Does anyone out there have another contact email/address? Thank you in advance!
