This is sort of like word association, but different. The rules are that your response has to be MST/RT/CT related and has to have (at least in your mind) a connection of some sort to the previous post, however literal or liberal that connection may be. I'll start with:

So apparently, one of the movies they'll be riffing in season 13 is a Gamera feature, and I have to admit that this is the first time I've been a little excited about this new attempt. I liked the riffing on the Gamera movies and this is a new one!

"Zombies or Argent" riff explained
Rysov Pipple - 5 days ago

Somewhere in MST or RT there's a riff - probably in a zombie film - where someone mentions zombies (something like "I like zombies.") and then one of the riffers (Mike, I think) says "Or Argent". It's so short and subtle that it can easily be missed. Last year, I discovered the reason for that riff and now enjoy it heartily.

The Zombies were a 60's band. Last year, I bought their singles "Time of the Season" and "She's Not There". I did some research and learned that the wonderful organ solos in them were done by member Rod Argent. That rang a bell in my head. A little more research confirmed my suspicions: In the early '70s, Rod Argent started his own band, named Argent. I remember their big single "Hold Your Head Up", which I always loved. You can hear Rod's organ chops on that as well.

As a wise man once said, if you didn't know, now you know. :)

I posted this in the (rather long) thread about the Kickstarter, but the news that Joel will brush the dust off his Gizmonic Institute jumpsuit if the campaign hits the 9 episode mark ($4.4 million) is BIG NEWS in itself!
I guess that means that the other 8 episode will be shared 50/50 by Emily and Jonah, but the bots' daddy is coming home! I guess that hot fish shop in Osseo didn't work out so well and he's just a jobbing victim these days.

Last night, Joel sent an update expanding on just what this whole "Gizmoplex" thing is. Bold of him to wait until the final days of the campaign to actually tell us what he's trying to build with it.

The update is up on the KS page, but if you want a summary:

He's looking to create a theater experience on the web. So the UI will feel like walking through a multiplex, with various theater rooms, a concession stand (where you can order snacks and merch to be mailed to you), a lobby with the names of the KS backers, and a ticket booth where you can rent movies or get a "day pass" to watch with friends.

They'll have live events once or twice a month, whether that be new episodes, re-riffs, watchalongs like the recent livestreams, or what have you. They'll also have... basically what we have right here? All the old episodes available to watch, except in a community setting where you can watch and chat with friends.

There will be marathon screenings where you can pop in and out and just chat (like Twitch), or you can watch with designated friends, or by yourself, or with groups of regulars.

You'll be able to buy or rent episodes or individual shorts or even some content from other sites/projects (including Rifftrax, Cinematic Titanic, recordings of the MST3K live tours, and more). Unfortunately, they won't be able to import your list of purchased content from Rifftrax.

Membership isn't required, but will give you some perks like discounts, members-only forums, and bonus content.

New episodes and live events will premier on the site, and then be distributed on other platforms like YT and Twitch 3-6 months later.

Seems like it'll be interesting to watch it take shape. Personally, I prefer the format here, where I can watch at my own pace on my own schedule and interact with the community in the comments section rather than live chat. But it seems like it will have some new experiences to offer. I'm really looking forward to being able to watch them riff Argoman: The Fantastic Superman again. I saw that on the first live tour, and it was one of their best.

Essentially, a series of "Best of" selections from movies that RiffTrax have done as audio riffs only, matched up to the the relevant video footage. I have linked several of them in 'Other Vids'. Enjoy. Or, in the case of 'Roller Gator', suffer!

Just firing up some fabulous coconut-rice pudding in my slow cooker right now. (Dates, pistachios, and rosewater to be added later.) It's been too long... Also, an aside to other Columbo watchers: you know that sex doctor would've let her cheating boyfriend-promoter live if he hadn't sneered at her AND rice pudding in the same breath. Let that be a lesson-- to YOU!! Also, what EXTREEEEME kitchen things have the rest of you been doing as of late? I must know!

I have spent a bit of time going through the 'Other Vids' section, hunting out dead links and, where possible, replacing them with live ones. However, there are some I can't track down and I have renamed them to have "Dead Link" as the beginning of their names. If you can help, please jump in with what you got.
In the case of Cinematic Titanic, I have replaced the dead links with Shout Factory links, which don't embed, but can be clicked on to get you where you need to go. At least I hope so - let me know if they don't work.

Joel's latest Kickstarter update is promising a (anaglyphic) 3D movie if the campaign reaches $3.75 million by Sunday night. Also available in plain vanilla 2D, for the Luddites.
Joel: "We've already got a couple possible 3-D movies selected (including one that is so bad, I think it might be the next Manos: The Hands of Fate)."

These scam comments are getting out of hand, is anything being done about this? I went to watch Merlin's Shop of Wonders and the first ten comments are just weird, low effort scam posts. Can we maybe give some senior members the ability to delete comments like these or have some better spam filters or something? This has been an issue for too long.
