Let’s hear it!

Weekend Discussion Thread: Adding a MSTed Movie Character to Another MSTed Movie

Alert reader “Blonde Russian Spy” asks:

What MST3K movie could be made better by inserting a character from another MST3K movie? Me, I’d put the “Giant Gila Monster” into “Monster A-Go-Go,” just so we could say that there actually WAS a monster. What do you think?

I think the fight scene between Eddie Crane and Daddy-O would be amazing.

What’s your pick?

Keep those WDT suggestions coming!

RIP Toni Morrison

Toni Morrison, the Nobel laureate in literature whose best-selling work explored black identity in America — and in particular the often crushing experience of black women — through luminous, incantatory prose resembling that of no other writer in English, died on Aug. 8 at a hospital in the Bronx. She was 88.

MSTies will recall another fan of Morrison’s, Jack Perkins, mentioned her in a host segment in episode 310- FUGITIVE ALIEN.

The New York Times has the story.

RIP Henri Belolo

FRANCE–Henri Belolo, co-creator of Village People, died on Saturday, Aug. 3. He was 82.
The French music producer helped shape disco music, penning hits that were featured in several films, Broadway, commercials, and more. Of course, their monster hits “Y.M.C.A.,” “Macho Man” and “In The Navy” are also still played at every wedding, party, and bar and bat mitzvah today.
Longtime MSTies will recall that another place “Y.M.C.A.” was played was in a host segment in episode K12- FUGITIVE ALIEN, and it got Joel and the bots dancing.

Billboard has the story.

Weekend discussion thread: LEGO movies

Alert reader Timmy writes:

i know we did this before (but would be fun to revisit)
Each year i go to a local Lego Convention. this year, someone had the The Satellite of Love made out of Lego (with the inside done too). with that in mind, what would be a fun MST3K movie done in Lego. i was thinking The Sword and the Dragon and one of the Sandy Frank Japanese TV shows did. what is your idea for a set.

He also provides a few pictures of the Lego SOL that inspired him…

Have at it!

And keep those WDT ideas coming!
