Hey Aileen, just wondering how things have been going for you and all. I don't come on the Club very often anymore but occasionally check in to see if any of the Old Gang is still alive. Hope all is well and don't be such a stranger :) BTW, in case you were scratching your head and going who the heck is Jaguar Wong(it's me Phantom Chicken)

Hello Aileen. Just wanted to stop by and say I'm sorry that everyone seemed to misconstrue your points about Pearl-hate and sexism. Personally, I agree that it is suspect when people say "she ain't funny" and can't back it up. If people have reasons for not liking her or the Sci-fi era, I respectfully disagree. But I have no respect for knee-jerk reactions that are always unexamined but frequently espoused.

So I get the impression that you like both hip-hop and cubism. I was just looking for a topic to blog about for one of my web marketing clients, and I thought you might find this interesting:

I was watching 'Teenage Crimewave' the other night after the 'kishka' posting and noticed Mike singing something about "who stole my kishka" at the beginning of the space deli sketch... I looked it up and found this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EAmLXrMv4-c

Concerned for the characters?

I was watching Monster A Go Go the other day. This horrible movie that is so far below B movie that it might go beyond Z. And yet, I had a moment when the narrator was doing the whole "There was no monster." thing where I was suddenly happy to realize that this meant that Jimmy would get to go fishing with Frank Douglas after all.

Has anyone ever had something like this before where, even with as bad as the movies are, there's a genuine (if short-lived) concern for the well-being of the characters?

Reasons to Have a Dog
A dog is one of the most popular pets that people keep all over the world. The overwhelming majority of them tend to give dogs all they can. Keepers want their dogs to have totally comfortable lives, so they buy comfortable clothes, great toys, and the best rated dog food for their pets. Why does it happen exactly that way?
According to the research data available in different sources online, more and more families and lonely people decide to have dogs nowadays. What is the deal? How can you explain that? Maybe, people just feel better together with their beloved pets? That seems to be true. However, there are other reasons for a person to get a dog and, of course, keep it. Here below, you can find the best and most important reasons to have a dog nearby.
Before we proceed, though, it is important to note that the particular breed of a dog does not matter much here. You can choose the breed according to your preferences and criteria and still be confident that the factors below apply.
Walking with a Dog is Cool
Regular walking down the streets familiar to you can become much more exciting when your beloved dog is walking beside you. In addition, your wellbeing and physical shape receive a significant boost.
Why so? That is simple. Dog keepers just have to spend 30 minutes outside twice a day. That is the time when you exercise and breathe fresh air every day. A dog owner is forced to make walking their routine, so the new routine element improves their health a lot.
Dogs Help People Make Friends
Think about that. Many people decide to get and keep a dog due to the same simple reason: they are lonely. The point is, their loneliness is not acceptable for them, so such dog owners want to meet new people and make friends. Is it a problem?
It is not if you have a dog! As it was already mentioned, you need to walk with your dog in the evening without excuses. So, simply go to a local park in the evening together, and it will not be a challenge for you to make new contacts there.
Your Dog is Surely Your Friend
That is another reason for people to keep their pets with love and get top rated dog foods for them. People and even families can feel lonely not only when they feel it difficult to make new connections. The lack of trust is a completely different factor preventing them from having a friend or two.
When speaking of a dog, you can always be sure that its happy face when it sees you is entirely sincere. Your dog is absolutely satisfied to have such a good and kind keeper. Humans are social creatures who need love. Your dog’s love can add a lot of positivity to your regular days. It will make you smile much more frequently than you used to do before getting a pet!
A Dog is an Effective and Free Antidepressant
You can relax and have fun easily while playing with your dog. At least, your routine responsibilities and activities will get out of your mind during that pet play session. That is extremely useful, especially regarding the crazy tempo of modern reality that does not allow people to relax at all.
Additionally, a dog can be your antidepressant or at least an effective mental healthcare assistant. Psychotherapists working with people who suffer from depression recommend their patients to spend more time with pets, such as cats or dogs. It is proven by science that playing with their beloved animals can increase the level of the “happiness hormone” (serotonin) in human blood. Why shouldn’t you use that effect to make your life brighter?
A Dog Cultivates Responsibility
Families deciding to get a dog frequently assume that their kids will become more responsible if there will be a pet in their house. However, that is only one part of the truth.
The other one is that the dog can cultivate responsibility not only in children. Adults become more self-confident and responsible when they own a dog, too. The point is, you can’t avoid caring about your dog, and that fact alone adds you a lot of mental and spiritual discipline.
To Conclude
If you are thinking about getting a dog for yourself or your children, you’ll have to take a bunch of connected responsibilities. However, a pet will give you a lot in return: friendship, love, faith, and the reason to go in for self-improvement.
Do you still have doubts?
Come on. Just go and get that dog already!
P.S. Don’t forget to visit toprateddogfoods.com to find out more about high-quality food for your pet. It deserves the best you can give!

Does anyone else out there agree with me that the new Netflix MST3K is just not very good? . The movie choices are great and the riffing is....ok. And some of the host segments are pretty remarkable for all the work and practice they must've required. But to me the show just seems over the top. Like its really trying too hard to be bigger and better and faster paced than the original.
. I know most of this is Joel's doing and that still does nothing to soften the blow for me. I watched all the episodes at least twice because I really WANTED to like it.
. There are 2 fan-made mst3k episodes riffing the Gamera movies (Jiger and Viras). These ones are great! They really capture the feel and humor of the first 5 seasons. Check it out if you haven't seen them. Search for "Branzant" on youtube.
. But other than that, everything after Diabolik has been a disappointment.
But I do love RiffTrax, Cinematic Titanic, The Mads, and Film Crew.


Thinnest plot?

Which MST3K movie do you think has the thinnest plot? There are a bunch where the action is slow, or where there are long pauses. Hours of rock climbing or liturgical dance. Or lots of confusion where you need to spend half an hour assembling the plot like a jigsaw puzzle to make sense of what you just watched. But which movie is the one where the plot just isn't there? Nothing happens, no one does anything, none of it matters. I usually think of The Starfighters (which I just rewatched this weekend), but is there a riffed movie with less of a plot than that?
