It is bad fanfic! I'm still stuck on the mystery of Minecraft. I always feel like I should stand 20 feet back from 8-bit graphics so I can see the entire un-pixelated picture in focus.

Hey, now, gang! Don't forget to grab your Posture Pals and head on over to the WIT tonight, featuring two of my all-time favorite actors: John Carradine and Tor Johnson. Blah blah blah, etc. etc, won't you?

Right now, I'm celebrating the 4th with a legal joint and a viewing of Starfighters, as a salute to Our Brave Boys (he says, totally ironically).

I wake up on Independence Day, and before I raise my flag on the West Coast I check in and see a new feature added in our forums that can either put a stop to fireworks, or launch them.
A REPORT FEATURE!
Surely crucial when threads go off (or start in) the deep end.
But let it not infringe upon the liberty we have as posters in terms of occasionally salty language or bold opinion. "With great power comes great responsibility." Don't let Uncle Ben down.

Thank you Stephen. (bumpable threads)

Don't you think it would be a good idea for Rifftrax to riff the horrible Jaws sequels? That seems like it would be funny. Maybe even the first one would work, however, the revenge would be the best one.


Celebrating the USA with MST3k

In the high school football field next to where I'm currently cat-sitting, there will be a big fireworks display tonight. They do it a day early to bring in the crowds, I suppose. I heard the choir practicing last night--all the ol' standards like You're a Grand Old Flag. So I thought I'd make it an Americana night (with a break to go into the backyard to watch the fireworks, of course). What movies would you choose to celebrate our highly flawed but wonderful country?

Just getting ready to settle in for this evening watching of Mad Monster. I haven't seen this episode in a while, and the movie is one of my good old "Creature Feature" faves from my youth. I never thought George Zucco got enough recognition as a creepy horror actor.

TCM AIRS MARXIST REVOLUTION

Sunday, TCM, 8PM EDT, The ALL TIME CLASSIC...

DUCK SOUP starring THE MARX BROTHERS

Armed and dangerous, especially to his own troops, Fredonia President Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho) takes his country to war. (They even gave Zeppo a gun. Obviously they hadn't told their brother that this was the last film he would be doing with them- or with anybody for that matter.)

Now, why didn't I give this thread an OT designation?
Watch "Duck Soup" and listen. Some very familiar lines will come your way, even if you've never seen a single Marx Bros. movie.

So if you get TCM and have the time on your hands, turn on, tune in and drop out. (That whole DAY is full of good stuff.)

TCM also airs "The Music Man" on July 4th, 10:15 PM EDT. A surprising amount of riffs were generated by this classic musical.

*****WARNING!!!*****: "Duck Soup" is a very funny movie. A surprising amount of the humor holds up. Even when they affectionately appropriate "All God's Chillun Got Shoes" it works as intended, being a satiric jab at the "sanctity" of war. Very Mel Brooks-like.
However, two jokes are racially insensitive. These jokes have NOT aged well. Hopefully you can forgive them that. If it matters, the humor came from a place of ignorance, not hate.

Here's and idea how bout you pick a fav episode for every era of MST. Season 0-1. Season 2-5.5. Season 5.5-7. And season 8-10. One fav episode for each era and watch oldest to newest and see the evolution of the show. For example: the crawling eye(1), gamera vs guiron(2), Danger death Ray (3), and horror of party beach (4). See all the different cast members.

Hey guys, normally I don't do this, but I guess I'm feeling a little selfish today. The film club that I am a part of started a blog a month ago reviewing films we watch in the club and other classic films and such. I just thought that some of you out there who love movies as much as I do would appreciate it. It's definitely a good source to find new and off the beaten path films that you may not hear about otherwise. I have done two reviews so far, one of which should be posted today to tomorrow, both under the screenname tailofdogmas33. The first was for a new film called Slow West and the one I wrote today is for John Ford's 1939 classic Stagecoach. Hope some of you check it out! Thanks : )

I can't b alone when I say occasionally (often?) I will watch an ep & simpley get overwhelmingly touched on many levels that maybe 2 the outside world seems odd at best.

Specifically, sometimes I c the ep (crappy brain sorry! u have 2 remember the ep itself 4 me - Swamp Diamonds maybe? ) when Servo decides he has a crush on Gypsy & want 2 ask her on a date? Sometimes i c that, with him in his husky fitting little polo shirt, studdering & mispronouncing her name ...and I just want 2 cry. From being touched in so many ways.

And then my logical brain blocks my emotional one & I am baffled, amazed & overjoyed that I can feel this way so deeply & sacredly about the life breathed into plastic & metal toys...

The other night, whilst dancing naked around a bonfire, like witches do, I was hit in the head by a moon-rock. WOW! Now, we all know what will happen to me, a few good days transforming into a Gorn and then, the inevitable, a vogue-dance followed by bursting into flames...

I saw a doctor, and normally he doesn't let patients see the x-rays, but he made an exception THIS TIME, and allowed me to know about my illness.

I just wanted to say goodbye to everyone before I explode... and tell you all what a great pleasure it has been communing with you here at The Club... now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go make dinner. A stew, of corn, green peppers *sigh* onions...

Okay, so I found out that my idea for a musical, Manos: the Hands of Fate, has already been done. Twice. One time ripping off Avenue Q. So, I have been given the idea of Teenage Strangler: the Musical. Does anyone else have any MSTied Movies that would work for a musical?

I have a new idea for a musical, and this time, it's final! I am going to write Manos and the Hands of Fate: the Musical! It took me a long thought process. I wanted to jump on the "make fun of B-Movies" train. I figured that since this show is public domain, I could simply do this. Plus, it is one of the most iconic bad movies. Manos: The Musical could be the title? And Torgo could get a tap number XD What do you think, sirs?

I don't like to be the bearer of ill-tidings, but as one of the "prog rock-heads" here I gotta announce it ...

Chris "The Fish" Squire of YES just died. I only found out about it in the past 10 minutes or so, just in time to play (most of) Schindleria Praematurus in remembrance before the day ended.

YES was one of my biggest musical influences as a kid, and for a long time they were hands-down my favorite prog band, bar none. They're still one of my "more favorite bands" in a lot of ways. And Squire was the only member that was literally on every YES album. In a way he was like the backbone of the band.


Some tangential thoughts for open discussion

Ok, taking off for another Forum Hiatus on Tuesday...but before I go, discussion.

The internet has made it very easy for people to parody/riff things. My intuition and obstinancy tells me that this is an unfortunate trend; mostly because it creates a glut of stuff, which is made so rapidly that no time or intelligence went into it. MST is a tough act to follow, but what do you think of the current culture of "making fun of stuff"?

as a sub-issue, in recent threads I've noticed my love for MST has blinded me in some ways... for example, being all the more horrified with "Catching Trouble" because a couple of puppets and a sleepy guy were horrified. Is it possible to be fair? MSTieism is an odd thing, unique. And very deeply felt, often as not, woven into the fabrics of our sensibilities. I'm aware that I'm not always fair in my judgment.

But, wouldn't you agree, the stars will never come together as they did for MST. Literally handmade by a small group of people, who decided to stay in the Midwest somewhere and make this thing for themselves... and what a group of people. MST had honest roots... their only motivation must have been that they wanted to make this thing. That sets it apart from big budget productions as well as random people looking for 15 minutes of internet fame.

Thoughts on any of this? I know its not a concrete topic...

The Anti-Manos

The great thing about Manos is that it's so bizarre and so much comes of out left field that we can find plenty of antidotes for it. It definitely has the feel of someone watching a bunch of movies, thinking that various elements of them were how you made movies and then sticking it all in a blender.

I'm having a hard time thinking of anything particularly good right now as I'm in high stress work mode. The only movie I can think of as a response is my beloved Rocky Horror. You've got your lost & stranded folks, your hobbling assistant who pushes against the Master's authority, your flamboyantly dressed Master who runs a cult-like household. Stuff like that. But I know it's not necessarily considered to be a good movie.
