In The Not Too Distant Future, Next Sunday A.D.

I went and saw Cinematic Titanic last Friday night. It's basically the original cast of Mystery Science Theater 3000 doing live shows around the US. It's Joel Hodgson, Frank Conniff ("TV's Frank"), Trace Beaulieu (Crow T. Robot), Josh Weinstein, and Mary Jo Pehl.

Don't get this confused with the other MST3K-style "make fun of movies while they are playing" called RiffTrax. That one's Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy (Tom Servo), and Bill Corbet (the second Crow). i saw them in a "direct live to your movie theater" show last month... and to be honest, their show was a lot more fun (and funnier). But still, seeing Minneapolis-style comedy is better than not.

Last Friday's movie was "Genocide: AKA War Of The Insects". Which is an awful movie, but easier to make fun of than "Runaway" which Thor and I saw together in a different MST3K-style show in Denver last month. Unfortunately, "War Of The Insects" didn't have any giant insects, even though it was 1) a Japanese film and 2) featured leaking nuclear fuel. That was disappointing. But hilarious!


I made a MST3K pumpkin for Halloween. It's a style I invented when I was 14... I just peel off the top layer of the pumpkin, exposing the white part underneath. So, the pumpkin lasts a long time - though you can't put a candle in it. It's a trade-off. Check out a web page I made of some of my pumpkins throughout the years.
