The Giant Spider Invasion was filmed in Gleason, WI - about a two hour drive from the capitol of publicly-owned football fanaticism, Green Bay, WI.
Green Bay is an actual bay, the little finger of Lake Michigan that creates the peninsula on the left side of Wisconsin. I just thought you all should know that since it's basically "Football Holiday" in the United States today.
Episode 0810: The Giant Spider Invasion
Some still have them: mine will not upload again. Any idea what is happening?
Looks like some rights are being freed up. RiffTrax are going to be making available the episodes from their previous (brief) incarnation: http://www.rifftrax.com/the-film-crew-killers-from-space
I just linked a film in 'Other Vids' of The Final Sacrifice 2 (aka The Finaler Sacrifice, aka The Zappening).
Repeat to yourself, it's just a fanfilm.
You really should relax.
But made with genuine affection.
Ever wonder if you catch references where there are none?
I've seen people do this about MST3K, where someone will say, "that riff is a reference to [x]!" when I think it's just coincidence that (making up an example here) the line "well that was a doozy" just happened to be both a catchphrase from an obscure '70s show and an unconnected riff.
Like this just happened to me, and I'm not sure if I spotted a clever reference or my mind connected two unrelated things.
So, in a game I was playing, Shin Megami Tensei IV, there is a demon named Wicker Man, and in its profile description the phase "...then the wicker man would be set ablaze. Some tales describe passerby stumbling across the remains, wondering how they got burned."
I took this as an easter egg referencing the infamous "How'd it get burned? How'd it get burned? How'd it get burned?" line from the Nic Cage movie Wicker Man.
Creative comedians establish a new form of comedy entertainment by making fun of old movies. Great minds think alike.
The "The World According To Garp" reference in this evening's WIT has me wondering. Can anybody remember which episode it is where the appearance of a bear on-screen provokes a reference to Garp's short story with the bear that walks on its hands and scares an old woman to death?
Like The Crimson Wave
The Cap Snaffler
or Doctor of Pediatric Medicine
Yes! Human Duplicators... That's a good enough reason to smoke entirely too much weed.
How MSTIE are you? I bought the Crawling Eye episode on Rifftrax just for the one-minute intro by Kevin Murphy. I immediately regretted my itchy trigger-finger, but it's too late to go back now. If I was any more hardcore I'd get a Tom Servo tattoo. And then regret doing that.
Just popping back in here to say I've started an endeavor to make best of clip shows out of hard to watch MST episodes, and I'm looking for suggestions. Hard to watch episodes only - anything else would be too easy. ;) Here's what I've done so far: (Note: Not everyone will consider all these episodes hard to watch. I wouldn't.)
Fugitive Alien I and II
Monster a Go Go
Radar Secret Service
Robot vs. the Aztec Mummy
Terror From the Year 5000
The Wild Wild World of Batwoman
The link below goes into more detail, but looking for some input here. The basics: Lady Unriffed and I purchased the WKRP box set from Shout. Been loving all the restored music (Stones, Albert King, Floyd, Captain F'ing Beefheart!) but this ep left us confused. You probably remember Vincent Schiavelli as the imposter who nearly walks away with $5000, when Johnny is able to recover the money and give it to the 'right' contest winner.
Well, on the DVD, Vincent Schiavelli is nowhere to be found. A John Wheeler plays the imposter and he gets away with it to, costing the station $10,000! Schiavelli has even been erased from the IMDB/TVGuide/etc cast list from WKRP.
The speculation on the net is this is the actual 'original' episode. TV guide did list John Wheeler as the guest the week the ep was supposed to air, but it was delayed a week. The blogger below speculates CBS had an issue with a criminal getting away with the crime, but I thought the Hays Code was dead.
Still, even with this change the set is worth getting. Even though you may question your memory when you get to this episode.

I noticed on the back of my box set it incorrectly lists the actors below Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonders. The actors/text appears to be from Hamlet, from the previous volume. Anyone know how many tens of thousands of $$$ it must be worth? ;-)
Is there a working link? All I can see is a big white space where a movie oughta be, and hovering over it doesn't reveal or suggest a link of any kind. What's with?!
The owner of a dog named Snuffy mentioned paganguy1, which is like mentioning drama, which is why.... PERSONAL POST INCOMING! I just posted this on Facebook after several weeks of feeling a certain way.
"So I've never had any desire to get married, but I've always wanted kids. But recently I've been rethinking that, and I don't know if it's my encroaching 27th birthday or depression or what. I love babies and kids, but... I don't know if they're worth the trouble and money. All I want in life, I think, is enough moolah to live on my own with as many pets as I can handle. A dog or two, a few guinea pigs, a sizable aquarium, maybe a cat, a couple reptiles, etc..."
Long before Peter Jackson, back in the fabled Eighties, there was a feature film of 'The Hobbit'. No, not that one. Or the other one you might be thinking of.
This was the USSR's attempt and it is, at least, shorter than the Kiwi bloatmeister's trilogy. Provided with what I suspect may not be entirely serious translations in subtitle form, here is The Hobbitski - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sl7w2Z0vGpA
Ladies and Gentlemen (and others), it is my sad duty to inform you that Frank Finlay, whom we have all enjoyed in The Deadly Bees has left the apiary. You can also find him in assorted better productions, such as The Three Musketeers. The Four Musketeers, A Study In Terror, Murder By Decree, the BBC's 1977 production Count Dracula opposite Louis Jourdan, Twisted Nerve, In the Devil's Garden, and Lifeforce. And for any Black Adder fans in the Peanut Gallery, you may also remember him as the Witchsmeller Pursuivant. Oh, and he was also Iago, opposite Olivier's Othello, in '65. And as a bit of trivia, his role in The Deadly Bees was actually written for Boris Karloff. Finlay accomplished a lot in 89 years, eh...?
The halloping gedbugs have got into my linguistic processing routines and now it's churning out spoonerisms on almost every noun phrase I come across.
Shiller Krews: People who pretend satisfaction for pay band together for the ultimate swindle.
Mash of the Croons: fifteen easy-listening hits played simultaneously.
Canta Slaws: Shredded cabbage from Peru.
Pantom Phlanet: A small damp cloth for when you're out of breath.
Spanhunt in Mace: Looking for the boundaries while being gassed.
The Mute Bran: Silent treatment for constipation.
Ding Kinosaur: Broken antique film projector.
Dave Cwellers: Would you believe with a name like that he's not actually Welsh?.
Blight of the Nood Beast: When Page 3 goes bad.
So anyone who has followed my posts knows that I am fairly new to the Internet in general and this is the first forum I've ever really participated in. I got here right before the religious blowup that led to paganguy leaving and I am sad, he was fun to talk to and there were some interesting threads. Now I feel like I need to look for another place to hang out and chat with intelligent people. Where can an intelligent atheist go for community and conversation? If any MSTies have a recommendation please let me know ... Don't get me wrong religion isn't the only topic I'm interested in I am also a voracious reader and a science nerd. As well as my interests in Dungeons & Dragons, fantasy, and my true passion My dogs!!! I guess I'm just bored and reaching out here...
In Escape 2000, there's a scene where a character is on a riverbank (53:05). In the background, there is a huge barge making its way down the river, with a big sign on it saying "Cibro." (Cibro is a New York based oil refiner) The riff: "On sale, Cibro barges. Own a genuine Cibro barge. Cibro barge company." The trivia: If you look closely, you can clearly see the actual name of the barge: "Cibro Savanna." In 1990, five years after Escape 2000 was filmed, the Cibro Savanna was ripped apart by two mysterious explosions, resulting in a massive fire, and between 100,000 and 200,000 gallons of home heating oil being spilled into the Staten Island Sound -- one of the worst coastal waterway oil spills on record.
Riff-o-matic served me up one of the riffs I added. First time that happened. Just taking a moment to savor and mark the occasion. It feels official now, you know?
Okay, moment done. Carry on.
I live in Japan now. It's 14 hours ahead. If anyone ever wants to wake and WIT, please let me know. I watch the WIT sometime around 7-10am eastern.
I will now watch one of the best episodes, The Leech Woman.
We were just discussing this in Daddy-O chat right now: The Blonde T-Bird Chick or Evil Slob's Manicurist -- who's hotter?
I know the Blonde T-Bird Chick is supposed to be the big love interest and all, but, honestly, I think that the Evil Slob's Manicurist is light-years hotter.
Seems the embedded chat is still busted; what's the chat link for Daddy-O?
Lost my avatar today. I see a few others are missing theirs, too. I tried to re-upload it, but I just keep getting error messages. Anyone know what's up? Is it because I signed into WIT with my Twitter account?
I was just thinking that, at least for the live shows of RT and CT, what they're really doing is a modern version of readers theatre. They read from a script. Often, they're acting out little bits. Where MST3K was a TV show that happened to feature the characters making fun of movies, RT and CT are people reading and creating a performance from that reading.
Anyway, that was my thought for the morning. :)
Join me in enjoying John Agar at a level of phonetically-delivered pomposity to rival Mole People.
Abe Vigoda, finally dead at 94.
