LeathaT's creative use for MST3K #2. INSOMNIA CLOCK. For those nights when the voices of my beloved J/M&TBots just cannot lull me to sleep, counting how many times the autoplay restarts the ep works better than a granddaddy clock.

Here's what I could see MST3K doing with a significantly-increased budget, but retaining the "cowtown puppet show" feel:

-A cooler-looking SOL bridge with those bitchin' rotary lights
-an updated version of the Joel doors
-better camera equipment (HD cameras)
-better-looking 'Bots
-Nicer-looking, more-detailed Mads' lairs
-Cooler-looking Hexfield
-Better lighting
-bigger budget for acquiring movies
-Same cheesy special FX
-NO CGI! That just ruins it.

What's the origin of the "welcome to death valley days" line that Crow was so fond of in the early seasons?

Space Ghost interviews Joel then they riff on Ultra 7-

Space Ghost Coast to Coast is probably my second favorite show after MST3K.

What bands would you say are referenced the most on the show? There are plenty of Beatles and Rolling Stones riffs, but there are plenty of Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac cracks as well as the Who! My favorite is probably all the Rush references, though

Worst soundtrack in a movie? It doesn't have to be a MST3K-ed movie, just any movie with really, REALLY bad music.

Okay, Halloween countdown! Name your top Halloween-y episode, but no picking a movie just because the actors are creepy.

Favorite episodes to watch for Halloween? I know MST3k is lousy with failed attempts at horror, but I plan on watching the lousiest in a marathon tonight. True terror awaits, MSTies! Bwaahahahahaaha*cough*hagha*hack**cough*

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?

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.

Best Self Riffs

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.
