Here's something weird: There's a 29 laugh gap between the second and third highest rated episodes here. It goes from Mitchell at 3rd place with 77 laughs to Manos at 2nd with 106 (Space Mutiny and The Final Sacrifice are tied for first at 111 laughs).

I wonder why there's such a large gap?

It's Halloween weekend, so I thought I'd share this with the Club: I wrote this list for last Halloween....I'm still waiting on permission to write a new one for this year:

Vote "Manos"! Fellow MSTies--if you haven't yet:

The Master does not approve of third place!

I was just puzzling: what might happen if the trio didn't go in for movie sign? There's always a lot of panic when it goes off, so I wonder what gruesome consequence they want to avoid if they just stayed put.

LeathaT's creative use of MST3K #1 (just discovered). When room is invaded some dumbbootie who can't seem to grasp the concept of "I am trying to write, leave me alone!" just turn the msty movie ( the one always playing in the background) up REALLY LOUD and announce with great excitement, "Ooo, ooo, I'm glad you came in! You HAVE to see this!" Makes 'em scurry faster'n Raid on a roach.

A guy on the bus today had a box of b-movies and I bought Killers From Space (Peter Graves) and Maniac (1934) from him for a dollar. Not a dollar each, mind you- one dollar for both. I feel like ten times a lady.

After the recent takedowns of some of our episodes, may I offer a suggestion?
Anyone who's got any episodes, upload them to YouTube UNLISTED.That means that they do nto appear in searches and consequently they're far less susceptible to takedowns. I'm taking that piece of advice from Whose Line Online- a little while ago, something similar happened and one of the members ther took it upon himself and reuploaded the ENTIRE SERIES. I honestly wish I could help, but alas I'm a rather-new MSTie and I have no episode collection.

I’m talking about funny film lines that probably weren’t meant to be funny.

My example: Superman II: Superman has just been downed by the evil kryptonians and a randome guy from the crowd yells “They killed Superman… Let’s get em!”

I laughed for fifteen minutes straight. Give me your favorites.

Looks like the MST3k videos have been taken off line. Went through about a dozen different episodes and got either an error message or a take down notice.

Wah!

Suggestion: add The Film Crew's movies that are available on YouTube? Perhaps below Season 10? I know it's not MST3K... but it basically is lol. Plus I was watching Wild Women of Wando today and Kevin's map of the (imaginary) world slays me.

Quick question, I consider myself a fairly big fan of the series, but one constant throwback that always had me curious was "SLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP" where did this originate? I'm pretty sure I've seen every episode. But I think I may have just missed this.

Has anyone else ever noticed that there's, like, four Star Wars references in the entire MST3K series? Not only are we talking about one of the most referenced titles in all of pop culture, we're talking about a venue rich with sci-fi movies, and one movie featuring James Earl Jones. To put this into context, by my recollection, Star Wars is in a tie with A Separate Peace for MST3K references. References that beat out Star Wars include Jeff Dunham, the Land of Dairy Queen, and Jerry Seinfeld as a cradle-robber. How does something like that happen?

Just curious here-
Can anyone here name a moment in any part of MST3K that "TOASTY!" from Mortal Kombat could fit in? I mean, a moment of a film or host segment where you could easily imagine Dan Forden popping up out of the corner of the screen and saying "TOASTY!"?

In case you feel you haven't suffered enough, The Big Bust Out Blog, a blog devoted to women-in-prison exploitation flicks, has an entire entry devoted to trashy biker exploitation flick soundtracks complete with album download links at http://bigbustout.blogspot.com/2010/01/biker-soundtracks.html -- including the cringe-inducing soundtrack from one of our own favorite biker exploitation flicks, The Hellcats (Experiment 209), containing the smash hits "Mass Confusion (They're Talking About The Plot)" and "I Can't Take A Chance (I'm Losing My Dignity)". Sadly, Big Bust Out hasn't yet snagged a copy of the Wild Rebels soundtrack.

Here's the latest on that pilot attempting to skydive from "the edge of space":
According to this late report:

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/10/09/baumgartner_jump_second_delay/

...due to adverse weather, Austrian pilot and skydiver Felix Baumgartner has had to once again postpone his attempt to skydive from the edge of space, trying for a record altitude of 120,000 feet in a skydive which will see him reach speeds of up to 690mph.

One question remains unanswered here: when Baumgartner finally gets a "go", will there be a great big wild-assed twist party in the desert before he takes off?

(Sorry, couldn't help it...)

I don't think I'm rushing the Halloween season at this point...

So, what are you doing for the most fun holiday of the year? Got any cool costume plans?

I'm planning on going as Vampira and getting my boyfriend to go as Zacherley, so that we're the perfect pair of ghouls.
