The Maturing Woman

I highly recommend Mary Jo & Bridget's new short on Rifftrax.com, "The Maturing Woman." It's from the 70's about the gender-specific societal problems encountered by women over 40, their riffing is quite good, and there's some fun surprises. Classic them.

The African field pickers look a bit nervous to be on camera.

Apologies if this has been covered, but it occurred to me all of a sudden that I haven't heard (or I missed) any mention of Gypsy in the MST3K reboot. She was always a handful, and didn't ever get fully developed in the original series, so it would make sense to just retire the character -- just wondering what the official word is.

Happy (early) Turkey Day! Anyone know the exact link for the MST3k Turkey Day Marathon? Once I know what it is, I'll make it the Watch-It-Together episode of the day.

Does anyone out there know the origin/significance of the admonition to "Turn down your lights (where applicable)"?

The Best Riff section of an episode... Boy, it's a mess sometimes.
After one innocuous commenter wondered why they were they only one posting "best riffs" on a Watch It Together episode, I felt I needed to tell them it's not the place for repeating riffs you found funny.

This is what I said:
Before submitting a Best Riff, I use Control+F to see if anyone has done that riff before me. And if so, I give that preexisting riff a laugh.

I can't be the only one going through an episode's "best riffs" and getting frustrated that many riffs get repeated two to five times. Whaddaya think, sirs?

i became curious about the making of TfOS and discovered some 'real-life' was going on behind the scenes. Much of the info comes from two of the actors, a husband and wife, who were in the film and Wiki. 'Thor', with his wife 'Hilda', loaned 'Joe' $5000 to finance the film giving them roles. They had to sue for the money years later. 'Thor' and 'Hilda' claim 'Joe' and 'Derek' were having an affair during production complicating matters. According to family and friends, once filming wrapped, 'Derek' disappeared and has not been heard from since. Perhaps he was sent home for TORTURE!

This one is right at the top of my list of perfect episodes for a newbie's first MST3K experience. It's just got it all -- great host segments, great riffing, and a perfectly riffable movie. Laughable "monster," horrible acting, ridiculous premises -- and the dialogue has all these pauses, sometimes in the middle of a sentence, sometimes in the middle of a WORD. Just makes it easy for them. The movie basically leans into the punches.

All you internet mavens have probably heard of Henri Le Chat Noir's famous YouTube videos about a French speaking spoiled house cat filled with ennui.....shot in black and white with subtitles. But if you need a quick laugh check out, they're 2 min long, and filmed by a film student, whose rapid rise to fame landing him a Little Friskys contract. Not that I like cats...being a dog and all..


What Are You Laughing At?

Here’s a phenomenon I’ve seen mentioned briefly in interviews or MST documentaries – easier if I just cite an example. Watching an episode with my 12 year old grandson, the movie’s giant bug or whatever has left a trail of destruction in its wake, and the riff is something like “Oh, Keith Moon was here.” The kid cracks up laughing. On a hunch, I ask “Do you know who Keith Moon was?” Nope. Not a clue. Never heard of him. But he was laughing just the same – real, genuine laughter. What the hell is that? I enjoy researching and writing annotations (annotatedmst.com) to explain stuff like that, always thinking it’s “for the kids,” but maybe I needn’t bother. I’m not sure it’s just kids, either. Ever experienced this? Any theories?


Go To Bed Old Man

Been watching a lot of episodes lately – thanks to the Shout! Factory add-on channel on Amazon, which offers a pretty good batch of commercial free MST3K eps – and one thing that strikes me is how many riffs, or entire host segments, are about TV shows, or commercials, or songs, or toys, or board games, that were actually pretty long-gone when the episode aired. That was kind of the joke – Joel explaining to the ‘bots why Slinkys or the Rat Pack were cool, and the ‘bots naturally taking the “Sure, whatever. Go to bed old man” position. Maybe it was just more of a Joel Era thing that ran its course, but I can’t help but wonder if the New Season will have any kind of element like that.
