We're almost to Christmas so I decided to do a riff of the day from one of the Christmas movies.

I was gonna post this tomorrow, but why wait? :D It's Thorlac's Mass, and everyone around here is preparing to eat smelly, disgusting skate for some ungodly reason. Traditional Icelandic food, I tells ya....

Happy holidays to you all. Hope you have a good one. :)

Lest ye not forget the Wassail Sketch. It's as Chrismassy as you can get, and it doesn't even take place around Christmas. As someone who loves the original Wassail song, this hits close to home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKpmg5DrpC0

Bad Movie Vocal Tics Which Tick You Off

Arrgghh. My first is: Slurring/mush-mouthing clearly caused by alcohol and/or drugs... when the character in question isn't supposed to be a drunk and/or druggie. Margaux Hemmingway is a major recent offender (Killer Fish) and they should've fed her to the title characters 20 minutes in. The toothy ones would swiftly have fallen into tiny killer fish comas. Win-win.

My other one is: foreign accents which are meant to give cardboard characters actual depth, but do not. See Ray Kellogg with his penchant for giving his little-girl-voiced, bargain basement ingenues Swedish or French accents or whatever. They always sound irritatingly fake. (I've never bothered to check and see if they actually were.)

I hope next season does 'The People that Time Forgot' the sequel to 'The land that time forgot'. The Doug McClure movies (This and 'At the Earths Core') were my favorite ones of the reboot and became instant classics for me, there actually fun movies, easy to riff and the monster costumes are so cheesy but awesome at the same time. Doug McClure is just awesome and I almost want to watch the sequel just to find out what happens to them stuck there after the sub blows up but I would love to watch an MST3K version. All three movies are based on books by Edgar Rice Burroughs so they've done 2/3 of the Doug McClure scifi movies that were made. Anyone else want this too?

Last year, I put together a compilation of forumite's favorite host segments. This year, I want to know your favorite MST3k song. Doesn't matter if it's a song by the MST crew or a song from one of the movies. Pick one favorite song, and it will appear in a compilation video. ^_^

If two or more people pick the same song, we'll have to either:

a) Stage a fight to the death.
b) Somebody will have to pick a different song.
c) Attribute one song to more than one forumite.
d) Pillow fight! :D

Also, I don't have any of season 11 or 12, so if your favorite song is in one of those seasons, I'll have to ask for a video of it. ^_^;

So, what's your favorite MST song? :D

Just a quick note to the Brit Msties. I consider myself to be fairly adept at the English language(I do crosswords in pen- humble brag). However, often on this site I will see comments with words I have no clue what they mean. So of course, I look up what the word means. Invariably, it will be a British word or phrase and it brings a smile to my face. I'm not sure the point i'm trying to get across other than I appreciate learning and I love the Brits' humor, use of language and the way y'all still use the letter u in so many words(I retract everything if I've been duped and I will start doing crosswords in pencil).

Hello, everyone! This isn't necessarily MST-related. I just thought I'd like to share, because essentially, I've actually grown up around a lot of you. Steve-Headed was one of the people that I talked to most, but you've seen me around! I'm an adult technically (dear God), so I just thought I'd share my recent bout. I have ranked 2nd in District 10 of Pennsylvania in District Orchestra in the String Bass section! I actually tied for first, which really impressed me. I was absolutely not expecting that, at all. Hopefully next comes regionals, then states, then the WORLD! Anyhow, I won't forget to spread the word of MST3K there! At district choir, once, I met a fellow MSTie. That was fun! He's in the military, now, so I'm sure he's sharing it there, as well! I just thought I'd share. I know it's unrelated, but I just thought I'd share! As a high school senior, it's my biggest achievement. Alright. Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Did it... I survived The Gauntlet. Any other takers finish it too? Thoughts? I feel like they ironed out a lot of the rough stuff from the previous season. Riffs felt better paced. Plus a really cool cameo! Hopefully, more in the pipeline?

My disdain for the latter and, certainly, the new seasons is no secret. It's like the 'extended pun' of the invention exchange ad infinitum, ad nauseum. So, here's the set-up. Joel's great-grandchild, Joel IV, is about to premier Season 87. Given the current MST3k trend, possible technological advancements, the weather on Mars or whatever...what would the new season look like? Include characters, films, formats or anything else considered apropos. My analyst said I should face my worst nightmares.

It just occurred to me that Dr. F. has got to be a genius when you consider all the things he does to Frank and the very next episode, Frank is back to normal again, no harm done. I'm amazed!
