*drunkenly* "Come out!"

3 weeks pass...

Found a bunc of mst3k streaming via Amazon Prime instant-watch

Watched Future War, that was O_o so bad

Watching Laserblast now...hilarious! The love scene made me cry from laughing so hard, loving it.

Still can't get over the scene with the aliens killing time in conversation with their superiors. "Uh, your move sir, you called us."

future war is one of my favorite mike episodes. the showdown in the church is so delightfully stupid.

Best running gag ever:

Mike Nelson: [the sheriff in Laserblast bears a striking resemblance to Hank Williams Jr] Look, are you READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?
Mike Nelson: Man, I've gotta go home and get READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!
Crow T. Robot: Let's find out of he's READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!
Mike Nelson: What do we got, another citizen who isn't READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!
Crow T. Robot: Anyway, all my rowdy friends are coming over later.
Crow T. Robot: I just feel like you're not ready for some football.
Tom Servo: Anything you say can be used to get you READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!
Tom Servo: I'm not ready for football anymore.
Tom Servo: [Sheriff is cracking open a Coke bottle] Hey, he knows how to use a Coke!
Mike Nelson: [In tune with old Coca-Cola jingle] I'd like to teach the world to GET READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!

Perhaps second only to, "Wooooo, Packers!"

Another brilliant gag from Laserblast -- Hank Williams Jr guy gets in car, Servo starts up a car honk noise.

My theory is that they had no idea if that was really going to be the last one so they went for broke throughout.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 21 May 2012 19:31 (1 year ago) Permalink

And the "PACKERS!!!" one was so insane, you could tell that was a bunch of Vikings fans letting out decades' worth of frustration.

And what the hey

Ned Raggett, Monday, 21 May 2012 19:36 (1 year ago) Permalink

My favorite thing about the "Packers!" gag is that it showed up in The Touch of Satan, in the scene in which The Giant Spider Invasion's Robert Easton shows up to conduct a witch-burning. ("Burn the witch!" "Packers! But mostly 'Burn the Witch!'")

"Packers!" is definitely my all time favorite.

was talking to one of my oldest friends recently and when MST3K popped up in conversation it turned out that he has an uncle, Barry Schulman, who used to work in television and at one point was a VP at Sci-Fi, and he's apparently widely beloved by fans of the show for saving it from cancellation a couple times. very cool! he supposedly even got to keep some of the puppets.

Now I kinda want to go home and do a Laserblast/Hobgoblins double feature.

Ha, tell your friend from all of us that his uncle is an angel of light.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 21 May 2012 19:47 (1 year ago) Permalink

I want to as well, that would be awesome. I wish I had the time to do that. xp

Respectfully, Tyrese Gibson (Nicole), Monday, 21 May 2012 19:48 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah i don't think my friend is overly familiar with the show but i was just like WOAH THAT IS SO COOOOOL (xpost)

I do hope they get back to completing a formal release of the rest of season one; they've done about half now and while it's definitely a woozier/slower show in comparison (but still miles beyond most of the KTMAs), it's still got some winners.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 21 May 2012 19:54 (1 year ago) Permalink

I tried to watch one of the season one eps on Netflix and just couldn't do it, gave up like five or ten minutes in. You got the spirit of the show but they seemed to be missing one great opportunity after another. Might have actually worked better in a way as a basis for people to watch with their friends and do their own riffs, which the show at its peak kind of doesn't leave any room for.

Man, I forgot about the Hank Williams Jr. gag, yeah, that was great!

-Good shooting Xanthar!
-Thanks, Denise.

In Laserblast I thought the music was real cool, specifically a tune playing on the radio in the van. So I went online to seek it and boom there it was on iTunes store! "Billy's Radio #1." Also features the hits "Grandpa and Kathy," "Billy and Kathy," "Tony Discovers Black Spot," "Love Theme After Fight," and "Billy in Mirror/Chuck Goes to Car."

There are many tribes in the Juggalo nation (Viceroy), Thursday, 24 May 2012 12:54 (1 year ago) Permalink

Went camping at one of our beautiful lakes a few weekends ago with some friends. Boated out to a place they had camped before and named Spider Island. Which got me all excited and go "Spider Island, home to the stars!" They didn't get it, of course, not being a nerd about it like I am. Had to keep the refs to myself all weekend. It was torture!

Did you get hot, beefy and sweaty? Were all your friends sultry dancers?

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 24 May 2012 14:43 (1 year ago) Permalink

We had that first part down pat. The second, not so much. I did sing the "Gary, Gary" song to myself a few times.

I wonder how much people paid to attend riff camp. The idea just seems strange to me.

Unfortunately the first rule is that you do not talk about riff camp.

Not once! I have always stuck to the show and rifftrax.

I've been watching (probably re-watching) these and yeah the Joel years are miles away better than the Mike years. At least in the overarching narrative/connective skits. You just can't beat Dr. Forrestor and TV's Frank as villains. I think season 3 is my favorite (Pod People still being my favorite ep).

I was thinking of watching some KTMAs on Youtube, anybody have any recommendations?

Yeah, watch seasons 2-7 instead.

Eric H., Friday, 3 August 2012 19:52 (1 year ago) Permalink

Just kidding, I actually haven't watched much of the KTMA's tho. Can't really seem to settle into them.

Eric H., Friday, 3 August 2012 19:53 (1 year ago) Permalink

really disappointed in the meager selection streaming on Netflix atm

andrew m., Friday, 3 August 2012 19:56 (1 year ago) Permalink

The KTMAs are weird and mixed but there are a few I would earmark:

Phase IV
Cosmic Princess
Humanoid Woman
SST Death Flight
The Six Million Eyes of Su-Muru

Ned Raggett, Friday, 3 August 2012 19:58 (1 year ago) Permalink

there was a KTMA Gamera episode that is to date one of the funniest things they've ever done
