"And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!"

Opportunity, the Mars rover, was a simply amazing beast of a machine, outlasting his predicted functioning lifespan 60 times over.
In another words, it was...

"THE ROVER THAT WOULDN'T DIE!!!"

Its fellow rover, Spirit, likewise outlasted its predicted 3 month efficacy 20 times over.
Fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 that we are, if you're like me (and... well, you know) it doesn't take much to imagine these mechanized, computerized wonders imbued with sentience- can you conceptualize the odyssey of discovery that was Opportunity's existence? I mean, even just acknowledging them as the non-anthropomorphized, non-PIXAR instruments the two were, what they accomplished is mind-boggling.
And the fact that their journeys have finally come to an end, that their data stream from another planet has stopped, well, it fills me with a slight sense of melancholy.
But also a sense of wonder. I thank the men and women of NASA for giving us this phenomenon of knowledge and exploration. This is what humankind was meant to do: learn.
Farewell Opportunity and Spirit. You may never have had to sit through "Manos", but you got to riff on a whole planet.

Anyone else recognize that the 2 guys in the short were gay? The mother realizes it and tries to push the daughter to try for the brothers friend. The ending was pure fiction (in that it seemed to work). Growing up with behavior modification techniques (not straight forward discussion) being used on me makes me recognize it right away.


Worst short ever!!!

OMG this short makes my blood boil!!! As a top female scientist/engineer in my field I can hardly watch it.

I prefer the movie to the short, which puts me against the tide. The short is just so sitcom sexist that it makes me want to chew concrete because I know that was based on some form of how advertisers really thought of women back then. The movie is more absurd and thus a little more tolerable.

I can quote this short. Every line and riff. It's truly the epitome of MST3K. It also fostered my love of 'shrooms as a kitchen theme. Vintage 'shrooms. And it's my introduction to the awesome of Carmina Burana (which led to a classic moment when someone wished they had the soundtrack for a slide show, and I delivered--in the days before youtube and instant gratification).


MST3k Christmas Present

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

This reminds me, I need to break out my "Santa's laughter mocks the poor" hoodie. Everyone expects it to say something witty and then is puzzled when they finish. The "it's from my favorite tv show" excuse doesn't go over well; guess I just don't have that Christmas spirit that Lupita has.

Oh man, Mike Nelsons's Morrissey impression gets me EVERY TIME. I had never heard The Smiths until after seeing this, and I laughed SO F***CKING HARD when I heard them for the first time. "Is it wrong not to always be glad?" I thought that was made up lyrics to mock The Smiths, but no....that's real. Wow.
