To those who didn't read the whole thread and missed my answers to Aileen:
Someone using Admin Paths has effed up two of my computers and continues to be a "ghost in the machine". I've called out a member (not counting sock accounts)of this forum who regularly slips white power rhetoric into his/her posts (I'm not talking about your typical RW or pro-Trump demagoguery), and while he or she never has directly answered me in any way -not even in the form of a denial- at least two of these attacks happened after I confronted him/her.
Also, you might want to check your address bar. As another Clubbie mentioned over a year ago, this is no longer a secure site.
Lastly, I had to be vague in my thread: I (and at least one other member of this forum)
am outspoken when people cross the line. That makes me unpopular with avowed "Anti-leftists". Not being a hacker or given access to admin paths, unlike others I have no idea of the actual identity of anyone. Even if I did, despite any issues I might have, I'm not the type of amazing colossal coward to hide behind a computer and negatively impact someone else's life, whether they deserve that sort of comeuppance or not. The thing is, if only I and a few others-hopefully more savvy than I as to the ways of computer security- are being targeted, why should I cause a chain reaction that would ruin things for those who don't feel like losing this place? I'm really not as big a dickweed as all that.

Damn it, Marty.
You were one of three of seven left.
You went from being my childhood hero, to being your brother's tormentor, my stepfather's protege, and a real piece of maggoty meat. From there your poison started to eat you, and in your wisdom you knew just how to deal with it: you fought poison with poison. What a flippin' cliche. And rather predictably, unlike other musicians, no great insights followed; just the shambling babble of a small soul with a gold fish bowl perspective.
Every month you'd hock your '57 Les Paul, the one with the rare gold and brown Sunburst, for just enough money to feed your habit. That way you'd still be able to have enough money after cashing your SSDI check, to cover the rent after rescuing her from the pawn shop. Clever enough... until that inevitable day when you were in jail and had no one to get your lady home- they were all in stir with you. To cap off this act, you lost the Love of Your Life for $200.

Then that sweet loving woman that held the other end of that fraying umbilical cord you forever found a need to climb back up, that beautiful, beloved lady died. Now you truly were what you claimed to be all along: an orphan.
Now you were completely unmoored.
And the longer you swam against the raging current of your gutter, the more the hatred you once reserved for any number of people- the innumerable forces working to vex and oppress you- found itself a rather meaty companion: the hatred you had for yourself.
And that first genuine revelation you ever had took you down as hard and fast as a slit Achilles:
You saw yourself irredeemable.
And you began to spurn the love of people you wouldn't have thought of letting go unexploited in what passed for your "Glory Days". No one could prevent you from taking the path of the martyr that led to atonement.

But choosing to be homeless, consuming anything that kept you high from one minute to the next, that wasn't martyrdom, Marty. That was just fvcking pathos. Aimless, thoughtless pathos. Real redemption would have meant redressing your wrongs, and that was too close to work for you. Plus, it would involve contrition, and your ignorant pride would never allow you to embrace out loud the admission that you had been so wrong, so cruel, so many times, in so many ways, over so many years, to so many people. Even the nice touches of Greek tragedy- like constantly getting arrested for panhandling and assaulting authorities in front of the store your father worked for decades- as fascinating as it might be to a Freudian, were empty gestures.

As was your final Act.

You got high. You got into a fight. In sad shape, you were taken to a hospital.
But, of course, those screws couldn't hold you.
Against the advice of the medical professionals, accompanied by the damned, you walked out those doors and into the path of a truck.

And that was all there was to the end of the song of the man who was once my hero.
And, goddammit, all the lessons between then and now cannot change the fact that you were that illusory fancy of the boy-me.
And with that acknowledged, I say goodbye to you with that time honored phrase that kids' of any age have utilized for the eulogies of their fallen idols since time in memoriam:

Fvck you, asshole.

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.

One hell of an actor. A good long innings, but he'll still be missed.
The only MST3K connection is a riff in 'Devil Doll, though.

Tanya Roberts, Rest In Peace. Your rolls in Beastmaster & Sheena, Queen of the Jungle still make my aged loins perspire.

Just a heads-up: Tonight, I am suddenly feeling done here. I dunno - keep covering the same ground. Maybe it's the yardwork. Or depression, Or era. Or pick one of a hundred things. Could change my mind, but feeling that way tonight. Anyhow, check in anytime. Always glad to see a note. Thanks for all the word fun and compadre-ship via the 'lectric Interwebz, in good times and not so good times. The email address is always open, if I'm not picking up over on the Message Wall. Pneumatic operators are standing by, so feel free to roll up a note and pop it in the tube!

Until the next message-fest.... onward through the strangeness that is life... or whatever this thing is that is its cheap-ass, low-rent, no-talent understudy.

Cheers!

If you could transport yourself to any movie from the club, which would it be? To truly be a person in that movie. To either help people in movie, which would be real to you and them, or to try and help out with whatever is going on. Or, if you just chose to be a person in that movie.


My Favorite Gypsy Moment

I think my favorite moment of Gypsy has to be the "I don't get you" sketch. Something about it just screams Gypsy. That's probably some of Jim Mallon's best work as Gypsy with the puppet and the character, itself. It's probably one of my favorite host segments of all time, as well. And of course, the "nobody gets me, I'm the wind, baby!" is a perfect response from Tom Servo.


Movie Songs - Your Picks?

We recently had a thread about songs sung by the MST cast. This one is about songs from the movies used as experiments. Many movies include songs sung by the movie's cast members (e.g.: Are You Happy In Your Work), some include a band playing a song (e.g.: California Lady), and some have songs sung during the credits (e.g.: Night Train to Mundo Fine). Songs from any of these categories are valid entries for this thread.

1. Which song do you find the most annoying?
2. Which song do you find the funniest?
3. Which song do you enjoy the most as a song?

How many riffed movies include a blind woman who plays piano? There's The Brute Man and Red Zone Cuba. Samson vs the Vampire Women at first seems like it does, but it turns out she's just staring off into space because she's entranced. I know there's at least one more...

Just heard of the passing of one of Jazz's greatest keyboardists. He played on two of my most favorite recordings of all time - Miles Davis' Bitches Brew and In Silent Way. See them here in one of the most astounding live performances I've ever seen, Live at Isle of Wight 1970:
