“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'”
—Isaac Asimov

THE WHIZZO SONG

Who's always smiling, never sad? It's Whizzo!
Who makes the boys and girls so glad, Whizzo!

He's a merry fellow with a big red shiny nose,
Dressed in crazy mixed-up clothes
From his head down to his toes.

He has a great big trunk of tricks, has Whizzo.
He'll sing a song or do a dance for you.

And when you're sad, he'll make you glad.
The very best friend you ever had.

Whizzo the clown, that's who!!!

I feel my mortal purchase slipping away again.
The siren call of the weeping void mournfully intones that familiar cascade of quavery notes, under which my resolve is slammed, battered into a coral reef of memories and specters.
What designer decided the manifestations of my ghosts? I can't possibly be the artist, the conjuror of these vexsome wraiths whose faces and manners are centuries older than I. And always, their persistent beckoning wears me down. And so I follow, no longer in curiosity, but accustomation, habituation, familiarity, that most conservative and lethal form of ennui.

Yep. If you're like me, I bet when you think "Giants of Rock and Roll", the first name that pops into your head is Whitney Houston.
Just because you partied like a rock star and died like a rock star doesn't mean you WERE a rock star. If that's all the criteria one needs to meet in order to join the rolls of The Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, I have a lot of dead friends I need to nominate.

Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats too noble to neglect
Deceived me into thinking I had something to protect

Steve, I hope you've had a chance to see my reply to the nice note you left on my wall awhile ago. I'm back from the Brain 'n' Body Shop again, and have hopes you will be visiting us all once more in Forumvilla (you are missed, monsieur - please do not ask us all to beg. Heck, I am already down on my one good knee). Best of ye olde (and ye newe) holiday wishes! : )

Caramel apples are a part of my life. This dates back to my childhood, where a night of trick-or-treating was not complete without stopping at my grandmother's house for the chewy orb-like confections. The melding of caramel and apple seemed to me in those days a confection ordained by the creator.
Hyperbole, you say?
No.
Fanaticism?
Sure.
And it is not just the association with those days, the powerful nostalgia that comes from tasting and smelling something and associating it with familiar and comforting memories, even though I know that scientifically speaking, smell is the most provocative memory enhancers of all the senses. I simply adore that combination of flavors. And even though, like Colonel Glenn Manning, I have a whole head full of goofy dental work, I still have to have to find time to savor one sometime during harvest time, the closer to Hallowe'en the better.

Now, CANDY apples- don't get me started. Candy apples are for FREAKS!

Hi folks. I have been absent due to a personal tragedy that I caused.
My precious, adored Border Collie...I made mistakes that cost him his life. The unfathomable depths of my despair have been dark. Making it even harder to deal with was how I integrated his name and personality - a real character, a born clown, and since he was a BC, smart as a whip- into the MST3k theme song.
His name was Marcus. The "new" theme song went as follows:
In the not too distant future,
Sa-tur-day-dee
There lives a dog named Mar Mar,
An adorable Border Collie,
He worked at the sheep dog trial show,
A handsome gent in his tuxedo,
He did a good job puttin' sheeps in their place,
Til the day they wouldn't mind him so he shot'em in their face

"We're very disappointed", the trial judges said,
"We need sheep brought to market, not shot in the head.
So keep in mind we won't abide a willful collie like that"
So he said "Well, then, screw you guys, I'll go play with my cat!"
(Collie roll call)
Marcus! Marcus! Marcus! Marrrrrrrrrrrr-cus!
If you're woundering just what the hell this whole song is about,
Repeat to yourself "He's a collie dog" and whip your Frisbee out...
For Border Collie Theater, 3000.

____________________________________________________

A lot of heavy stuff had come down before then, and I was already struggling. Causing Marcus's death...I just lost the will to live.

They are not long, the weeping and the laughter,
Love and desire and hate;
I think they have no portion in us after
We pass the gate.

They are not long, the days of wine and roses,
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
Within a dream.

Last night just before bed we read the terrible news that the great John Prine had passed away. With real tears in my eyes I laid in bed, trying to sleep. If you've never heard this man's great music, do yourself a favor today and take a few minutes to look some up. Any fans out there I don't have to tell you, you've already got him spinning on the turntable.

When I die let my ashes flow down the Green River
Let my soul roll up to the Rochester Dam
I'll be halfway to heaven with Paradise waitin'
Just five miles away from wherever I am

Rest in Peace John. Thank you for everything.
Much love.


MIDNIGHT MOVIES II

One Clubbie suggested giving it a shot at establishing a Midnight Movie night.
Naturally, I think it's a good idea, although I'm not experienced at working out logistics. (FOR INSTANCE: It has been a while since I surfed for FREE chat rooms or message boards for such events- are they still in existence?)
I am, however, very good at searching YouTube for legitimate candidates, and have found MANY of the films we discussed in the thread on-line for gratis at YT. The major bummer was discovering that the free post of "Re-Animator" had been snuffed out not long after Stuart Gordon's passing, since YT rents the film itself.

Still, so far I'm up to a MAGNIFICENT SEVEN great choices.
Now, unless we have a crushing response in the next 48 hours I don't suppose we can swing it for this week- unless we just want to throw one out there and see what happens for participation's sake. Of course, all viewing times would be subject to your time zone: The West Coast would be watching their "Midnight" at 9 PM.

Any takers?

Hey, guys. So, this is a non-MST related post, so keep scrolling if you're looking for some MST goodness. However, I have been a member of this group for a very long time and practically grown up, here, so you guys know a lot about me. And one of things you've seen me constantly rave about is the puppetry. I am a puppeteer and I have a new life plan, after getting my Music Ed Degree, I'll move closer to the puppet scene and teach music there, and try to get into the puppet scene. Now, I have been working on puppetry and there's one skill I haven't learned yet. And that's puppet building. And being in quarantine, I'd like to build my first-ever puppet. So, this is a shameless plug for a go-fund-me I started. If I get to build it, he can sing some MST songs of your requests! So, here's the link. What do ya think, sirs?
