Goodbye Sci-Fi

Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett reflect on MST3K's final broadcast.

Social Media


It’s a Girl!!

Well, here’s a pleasant thing to report that we rarely get to do: MST3K season 11 star Felicia Day gave birth to her first child, daughter Calliope Maeve, on Jan. 30.
Felicia was tweeting within 12 hours: “”Oh yeah Calliope Maeve has hit the world. Currently wearing a onesie that says ‘Bard in Training’.”

Best wishes from Satellite News, Felicia!

Thanks to Tim for the heads up.

    Perhaps an alien teething nook? Though it’ll be a little while before she starts teething…

    We are screwed.

    I will review Island of Terror and see if I can get any pointers on suppressing further mitosis.

    Perhaps in a few years a trip out west for Calliope to visit the Junior Rodeo. Just don’t let Old Timer Billy Slater talk her into the (calf?) riding contest. Ouch!

    Babies are beautiful, but I don’t understand this show business thing where there’s no mention of a father. Many of us grew up without a father, but that was a happenstance of life. Choosing to have an out of wedlock child with no father at all is her decision,but it’s unfair to the child.

    I didn’t know that Dan Quayle was on this board. :-|

    By the way, it isn’t a “show business thing” to raise a child as a single parent. Many non-celebrities make that choice, too.

    Their kids turn out fine.

    Who knows, maybe Calliope’s dad is involved with her. He and Felicia may want to keep their relationship private.

    Either way, it’s none of our business.

    I’m assuming you are a man. :-((

    You try carrying a heavy weight in your stomach for nine months and then having to push out something that’s the size of a watermelon through something that’s the size of a grapefruit.

    You wouldn’t find it funny.

    Matlock: Objection, Your Honor. The witness is talking out of his rear end, projecting, and passing judgment instead of simply enjoying the good news. Now what’s worse, no one even asked his opinion on being a mother in the first place – married or not. Motion to strike and to physically remove the witness from these otherwise glad proceedings.

    (Matlock’s Masonic ring glints in the courtroom glow and catches the judge’s eye.)

    Judge: Motion granted. Bailiff!

    Matlock: Thank you, Your Honor. Solomon himself could not have rendered a wiser decision. I will make dang sure that the baby’s first toy rattle is gavel-shaped, in your honor. Your Honor.

    Says a lot about your character that you’d rather find a reason to be judgmental and critical of a new mother based on assumptions, than be happy for her.

    I actually think it’s “bear muffin” but now I’m wondering what a beer muffin would taste like…I’m in PDX so I’m sure someone here makes them.

    Everyone’s over here arguing over the baby news, and I’m over here wondering why this is the ONLY news we’ve gotten that’s remotely related to the revival in months. It’s honestly like the revival doesn’t exist here, and the radio silence is not some “ban from Joel” because the Joel and the new cast are doing interviews with other news outlets and podcasts. Not only that, but so much of the news is PUBLIC on the Kickstarter itself, so it would be nothing to just do a write-up about it. What’s the deal, MST3kInfo?

    NPC, let me tell you something. The whole world is an MST3K Revival if you know how to look at it. The way the sun goes down when you’re tired, comes up when you want to be on the move. That’s real MST3K Revival magic. The way a leaf grows. The song of the birds. The way the desert looks at night, with the moon embracing it. Oh, my NPC, that’s… that’s MST3K Revival enough for anyone. Every time you watch a rainbow and feel wonder in your heart. Every time you pick up a handful of dust, and see not the dust, but a mystery, a marvel, there in your hand. Every time you stop and think, “I’m alive, and being alive is fantastic!” Every time such a thing happens, you’re part of the MST3K Revival.

    /me looks again at ms. day’s picture, bending back to stick ‘er belleh -waaaaaayy- out and pointing at it like you wouldn’t have ever noticed it in the first place…

    then /me looks at lavendare’s pursed, puckered, pouting, sour-pussed -and, i might add- extremely generically-typical response to’n mine prose’t… ;6 ;)

    damn! you’d think i didn’t add enough “smileys” to a little good-natured-ribbing (as if she hadn’t already gotten enough from the inside the past some months? ;) / slash / celebratory haiku to make -every- single person here happy. well, that’s just too bad for you, if you feel like taking things not written for you so selfishly personal.

    hint to the humorless… don’t go visiting comedy clubs/websites; nobody likes a debbie-downer. plus, if you have that much “vim n’ vinegar” in ya, there’s much more important battles to be fought out there than wasting it on me. (and, not to toot my own horn, but i was an ardent defender of the “bechdel” reviews back not just a few months ago… not proud of it, but definitely not ashamed either. i do what i feel i need to do, when i’m “called to do it” at the time… i’ve got better things to do than waste time standing up for myself, but you might not want to be attacking those you do not know who you might otherwise consider to be an “ally,” in whatever somesuch circumstance that may be.)

    despite the rumor
    lacking a sense of humor
    does not raise good kids

    and that’s why, i have a good feeling that ms. day’s proginy will have a fun and happy life. (and, i might add, she’s a hot momma! ;) so, if i may quote a pretending-to-be-pregnant crow just now on the comet marathon, “kiss my ever-widening ass!” ;)

    persevere, mon friers!

    tangentally speaking along these lines, i’m rather peeved that the majority of comet’s online adverts seem to be along the “conservative think-tank” variety; one just now was of the “planned parenthood performs abortions” variety… pardon muah’s humble opinion, but “everything’s political” these days. if peeps put in complaints to comet about their choice of advertising (and make no mistake, they can choose what gets shown)… i probably won’t be tuning in anymore after this evening, myself. i hate that numb-nut dumb-butt BS. just passing that thought along…

    Unfortunately, there’s not much to be done. These off the beaten path networks stay afloat from advertising by fringe groups and “as seen on TV” type scams that prey on the poor and elderly – in other words they are specifically targeting people who still primarily watch broadcast TV and haven’t moved on to streaming as their primary way to consume entertainment.

    I try to watch every now and then as a show of support for keeping the show on the air.

    If you watch “Comet” on-line, you have these weird 5 minutes gaps of silence, with a “we’ll be right back” screen. I guess it’s better than a cowboy talking about his penile catheter, but not that much better.
