The Next Shorts Calendar Is Now Available

We’ve already had some inquiries about whether we’re going to offer another “Shorts” calendar. The answer is: Why, yes, we are.

We’re Back!

Some dickweeds hacked our site. And our web host was, shall we say, less than speedy in allowing us to resolve the situation. But we’re back to fulfillĀ all of your MST3k info needs!

We’re Back (?) — Take Two

It appears kidnapping several family members of our host company’s CEO did the trick and they have resolved our issues.

Again, the open thread for reports from last weekend’s Cinematic Titanic shows is here.

Updated List of Weekend Discussion Threads

It has been almost two years since I’ve done this, and it’s time. I really don’t remember doing “brushes with greatness,” “favorite credit sequences” and “favorite costume worn by a bot” twice…

MSTieCast Interview

Josh at the MSTiecast podcast interviewed me. Before anybody says anything, I know “Women of the Prehistoric Planet” isn’t black and white, but the TV I first saw it on was!

Do not blame the MSTieCast guys on the sound quality. Blame my cheap Skype headset. Sorry…

Reminder: ‘Chaos at the Colonial’

Well, this should be fun…

Saturday, June 2, 8 p.m. Joel Hodgson (creator, writer and star of MST3K) and his students from Riff Camp 2012 are bringing some college-level movie riffing to the Colonial Theatre, 227 Bridge St., Phoenixville, Pa., in a movie riffing battle royale. Four groups will compete on stage riffing […]

Crowd Sourcing MSTory

The very observant among you may have noticed a new version of the block of boilerplate we always have at the bottom of a “This Date in MSTory” entry. We know that a number of you are bad movie buffs, and we’re hoping you can augment MSTory. Right now, the Internet Movie Database […]
