Why include Season 11 in the Watch-It-Together? Some of us don't have / can't afford (fixed income) Netflix to be able to join the festivities.
It makes my widdo heart sad not to be able to join such an illustrious, hilarious, and vivacious group as the MSTies. I'll be over here languishing in the corner...sobbing uncontrollably, alone, forlorn, inconsolable, and broken...or not.

My MST3K Season 12 wishlist

Hiya! It's been a while! I've been busy with conducting a pit orchestra for "Hello, Dolly," doing Halloween music with my barbershop quartet, and marching band! A lot is going on! If you're curious of what a puppeteer and puppet fan thought of "Happy-time Muders," just come talk to me xD however, I want to discuss my personal season 12 wishlist!
1. More Growler! I loved Growler instantly! He's a traditional live hands puppet, performed by a Henson puppeteer! He's fun and I hope he's a permanent satellite of love resident! He doesn't have to be in all of the host segments, but maybe three or four episodes, you know? Heck, Henson puppeteers are good at improv, let him in the theater once or twice!
2. Voice actors doing their own puppetry work! There was a disconnect from the voice and the puppeteers. This can be remedied by having the voices learn to puppeteer, then adding extra puppeteers with good chemistry to do arms or some floaty theater work. There's no in between. The Henson puppeteers can teach them how to do it. It'll expand themselves as performers, anyways. It's always good to learn a new craft as a performer.
3. More fun cameos! They were all fun in the past and I expect no less from the future of MST3K!
4. More memorable movies. The movies need a better ratio of memorable and exciting and funny to bad. The movies just weren't as fun in 11. There were a few gems, but not as many as the norm.

There's other stuff, but this is where I am right now. I enjoyed season 11 and I think the little problems like the mads being stiff and character voices will get better the more they perform these characters.

It says he used to make robots before he came up with the idea of MST3K and sell them to people. What a collector's item one of them would be!


Riffs that make you crack up

I'm currently watching Megaforce and there's a riff in it that makes me laugh every single time I watch, but just the line itself isn't that funny. It's the whole movie in combination with it. Something about how Kevin says it and the scene itself just makes me giggle.

"You've become a Gigaforce."

That got me thinking about MST3K riffs that just are funny without being obviously funny if you say them without the movie. One of my favorites is from Laserblast.

"Ecuadorian bat boy found alive in cave."

The riff isn't funny without the visual to back it up, but it's another of those riffs that just makes me laugh, even just thinking about it because I think of it in combination with the scene.

Went to the MST3K Live Tour last night and little did I know that Sodium would play such a big part in the festivities. My daughter and I had a great time...and yeah seeing Joel Riff/Live was a dream come true for me. I really liked the guy that did Crow's voice and puppet work(sorry Sir, forgot your name already). Joel & Jonah had a very nice chemistry together and who knew Synthia was so damn funny. All in all, very satisfied with my experience :o)

Just back from a few days in Arizona where the Waymo AD cars were ubiquitous.

The LiDAR unit on the top reminded me of the cars in "Radar Secret Service".

What future developments did Riffed movies get right, and what did they go way wide of the mark on?

We popped in Creature From The Haunted Sea and Nightmare Castle last night after all the little goblins had gone home. The former is Roger Corman trying to do political comedy, and it goes about as well as you'd expect. Something about Cuba and gangsters smuggling Loyalist wealth, and a few pretty ladies. (I don't know how the main one got all those costume changes and a piano aboard such a small boat, but whatever.) If this film hasn't been tapped for S12, it's a crime. The monster is so bad that it makes the World Conqueror Heinz Pickle look like Giger's Alien.

All I can say about Castle is... I guess there's a good reason gory giallo got so popular in its native Italy a few years after it. What a snore-fest, though at least the guy who played the visiting Doc was hot. He was looking in on an insane woman possessed by her sister/step-sister/half-sister/pedicurist... due to bad translations we're never sure which one. And there's a big rainstorm at the end, which led me to bust out with "4th Of JULY IN PORTLAND!" It's what Our Heroes would want, I'm sure.

What a great night! The show is great, and it's so cool to see Joel. It was fast and furious, so I can't remember any of the lines. "The Brain" is stultifyingly bad, and they did a good job of not letting the movie's rigor mortis set in. The crowd was totally invested, with lots of red and yellow jump suits. One guy went all out as Brain Guy, and Mr. B Natural was there as well (definitely a woman). I sat next to Pumaman. If the show comes near you, go, you won't regret it.

I think it may be the opening to Attack of the Giant Leeches. "Get on your orange and yellow knees and kiss my clown feet that I haven't killed you!" And then he does it.

He's driving up a canyon road...where'd he go now? Whoops!
We cannot see him anymore.
Why in the hell did they shoot this?
Hey, wait a minute there he is!
Still driving up the stupid road.
It isn't really night, it's day.
And they're not fooling anyone.
Why is it all so frickin' gray?
He shouldn't be out in the sun.
Looks like he finally got somewhere.
I like to dance like Fred Astaire!

MST3K Tour Kills It In DC

So, the Lisner Auditorium show last night killed, featuring Jonah, Joel and the Bots with Pearl's clone hosting in a game show format, and they riffed that mofo fast'n'furious, hitting the late-century pop-culture references especially hard. Oh, man, yeah.

The movie was The Brain, some finely-aged 1980s Canadian cheese in the classic monster flick tradition -- with a Corman-level monster, Corman-level villains, and Corman-level teenagers who nobody believes but who are the only hope for the Earth and all that standard-issue shit, except with mullets and blowouts, because '80s. At least the teenagers are played by actors who can at least pass for actual teenagers, I'll say that for the goddamn '80s.

The "hook" of the plot follows in a grand MST3K tradition, and they foreshadow the living shit out so badly that you might as well hang a goddamn lampshade on it, and that makes it even better/worse. I'll add no more paint to the picture in order not to spoil it for anybody here with tickets for The Brain.

...and I've just now realized I haven't posted a frothing stoned show review like this since the last Dead tour. Man, is it nice.

Um, maybe you should call a doctor. I don't think rubbing water on his forehead is going to do anything for the gaping chest wound.

(And I have to say that I think Mickey Hargitay is a near perfect example of someone who is trying really hard but is just a terrible actor.)
