Hey Ray! Haven't seen much of you around, but I wanted to ask you about Polish history. My wife, 4th generation Polish-American, was talking how she knows very little about Polish history, and all the documentaries she can find on the net are in Polish. What would you recommend for a newcomer to learning about Polish history? Thanks, hope the project is coming along well.

I love MST3K Journal. It's my favorite MST3K-related website after this one. It's informative, funny, and I always come back for more!

I read the Squirm entry on your site. I saw that no one replied when you posted it, and its like the last forum entry so its about to go away. Just saying I read it and thought it was funny. Although I think Spring Fever is the damn best short ever, around the Are you ready for Marriage one.

Hi everybody! Long time no see. Lotta new faces around here it seems. I've been pretty busy. Spent all summer inundated with research (which seems never-ending even though I've finished the primary stuff) and now I'm working on a pretty big project. That project is also why I haven't updated mst3kjournal.com in quite awhile. Dunno how many read it regularly, but I apologize for that. I certainly hope to return to it eventually, but what I'm working on currently is... less niche so to speak. Well, it's still pretty niche, but a bit more accessible!

I keep wanting to pop in here, but I'm trying to avoid online distractions. heh. That said, while I've been working at home, I've also handed off my former business for the most part and am doing the stay-at-home-dad thing, which involves a lot of home projects since we just moved to this place last year. Finally knocked off one of my bigger projects and, dang it, I had to share it with SOMEBODY because it feels goooood. All our books and dvds have been stuck in bins for months and months.

Finally got around to organizing/shelving all those bad boys.

Voila! http://imgur.com/a/jwLn6 (note the full series MST collection in the 6th pic..minus some of the official sets my wife keeps at school to show her kids!)

Anyways...glad to see this place clicking along happily. Keepin' the faith here.

Been back at the Hotel for awhile, and The Doll Squad was very very good. Even my non-MSTie wife had a great time. Best sight: little kid dressed as the master and his Dad (?) dressed as Torgo. Met Brain from Planet Arouse, had a good time sharing the experience with a fellow MSTie.
It was nice to shake their hands and thank them for the hours and hours of joy they have brought me over the years. Looking forward to a second helping of funny tomorrow.

Which fantasy film is more painful when taken on its own: Quest of the Delta Knights or Deathstalker III. I'm actually having a hard time deciding. Leaning towards Quest (and neither is in the realm of REALLY PAINFUL MOVIES), but they're both turrible and anathema to a fantasy lover such as I.

OT but just wanted to share a memory, likely brought on by the impending RoboCop reboot (UGH): Here is an awesome memory. Years ago in Toronto I was with my buddy AL who was driving us around downtown and we came across this wicked looking car when we noticed it said DETROIT POLICE on the side and then we noticed HOLY SHIT friggin RoboCop (actor Richard Eden) was driving in full getup as ROBOCOP! Now as if THAT was not cool enough? Pulling aside we were like "Hey RoboCop!" and without missing a beat and staying totally in character he simply slowly, robot like, glanced in our direction and simply said "Good day citizen!". HOW AWESOME IS THAT? Sure is was RoboCop the TV series but still damn cool.

Back at the hotel after CT's Danger on Tiki Island (starting the the Eye Creatures John Ashley). As good as this was, The Doll Squad was even more packed with top shelf riffing. It is the difference between and A+ and an A-, Got picture with Frank and Joel, and I also add a picture with a Crow (adding to my collection of fictional characters I've had my picture taken with), My wife loved the CT experience and is getting more and more Mstied every day!
Good Milwaukee experience today too, Cheese and Spice shopping,
And for the second straight day I met a board member, Ray B this time, that's more people meeting than I usually did in a year.
I'm glad I had an opportunity to tell the 5 of them how much joy and happiness they have (and will) continue to bring to my life.

What is the highest-ranked episode you haven't watched, and why haven't you watched it? What is your problem?

My episode is Hobgoblins, and I'm not watching it because the characters and story turn my stomach.

Am I the only one who's POed because a man is being hunted like an animal just for telling the American people that they were being spied on?
He did the right thing in my opinion; NSA has no right to spy on American citizens. Liberty BEFORE this supposed safety.

This afternoon, I was watching Experiment 013, SST Death Flight, and was checking out the KTMA station ID and time/temp "burns", and noticing that at airtime, approximately 5:30pm, the temperature in Minneapolis was 6 degrees Fahrenheit -- that's right, 6, count 'em, 6 degrees.

Now, this isn't to say that MST3K wasn't pure genius, or that Experiment 013 wasn't one of the jewels in the rough of Season 0, but I can't help wondering... could part of MST3K's early local success been the fact that at the time of year it first aired, it was so bitterly, oppressively cold that the entire population of the Twin Cities was cooped up in their homes channel flipping, landing on Channel 23 and asking themselves, "What in the hell am I looking at?"

You know this ant thing seems kind of minor in the midst of the flying turtle problems the people of Japan experienced. I think we're being insensitive.
