<Kevin> tick...
<Kevin> tick...
<Kevin> tick...
<Kevin> wait...
<Kevin> patience...

<Moderator> Welcome to our first chat with anyone from MST3K in, gosh, quite a while.

<Kevin> ommmmmm...
<Kevin> ommmmm.

<Moderator> I'm your obstructionary moderator for the evening.
<Moderator> If you have a question for Kevin, please send it to me as a private message.
<Moderator> Mr. Murphy, do you have any opening remarks for the group?

<Kevin> Good morning mr. Phelps.
<Kevin> Let's talk Edward.
<Kevin> How's everybody tonight?
<Kevin> Lemme Hear ya say "Yeah!"

<Moderator> Ah yes, "The Adventures of Edward the Less," found at
<Moderator> <--- shameless plugger.

<Kevin> I'll say.

<Moderator> <Agent-Moldy> to <Moderator>: Just wanted to compliment Kevin on "Edward the Less" and on his beautiful singing voice. It gives me chills, it's so pretty.

<Kevin> Thank you. I stole Mario Lanza's vocal chords.

<Moderator> <Queued> to <Moderator>: In IRC, nobody can hear you scream. Well, except Kevin. Edward the less rocks, but it should be a full blown, animated television show.

<KarlSCIFI> Send any questions you have to the Moderator with /msg Moderator or simply
<KarlSCIFI> double-click on the Moderator's name in the list of names on the right
<KarlSCIFI> side of their screen.

<Kevin> Edward is first a story book...
<Kevin> The art dictates this...
<Kevin> You can't get this kind of lovely art onb Flash...
<Kevin> Everything ends up looking like a Doonsbury cartoon.
<Kevin> We wanted somrthing differentt...
<Kevin> Oops.
<Kevin> So Edward is a hand-made storybook.

<Moderator> <ThickMcRunFast> to <Moderator>: Okay, and Edward the less question. What does Kevin think about being a cartoon charachter?

<Kevin> I am fatter in real life.
<Kevin> I love it.
<Kevin> Thank yyou thick.

<Moderator> <overthegardenwall> to <Moderator>: i wanted to tell kevin that he is a breath of fresh air in the writing community
<Moderator> (I guess that's not technically a question, but flattery is nice too)

<Kevin> Wow. I always thought my breath smelled like old pumpkins.

<Moderator> <TServo4> to <Moderator>: Back in the days at KTMA, you guys did some original comedy like MST3k and the Melon Drops. Were there any other original comedy that was notable?

<Kevin> Yes...
<Kevin> We did a phony news program...
<Kevin> calle d"Team 23"...
<Kevin> It was long before "The Daily SHow"
<Kevin> And Pretty much the same idea.
<Kevin> We had a lot of fun with the local news.

<Moderator> <DaddyO> to <Moderator>: Did you ever consider doing "MST3K: The Cartoon" and making fun of old cartoons (Superfriends, etc.)?

<Kevin> Sure...
<Kevin> Dark HOrse Comics wanted to do a Comic Book...
<Kevin> It never panned out...
<Kevin> I still think an Animated show of the characters...
<Kevin> would be a lot of fun...
<Kevin> But puppets making fun of cartoons...
<Kevin> It dopn't work, man.

<Moderator> <trnoel> to <Moderator>: Have you worked with Rich Larsen before?

<Kevin> Rich Larson did the storyboards for MST the MOvie...
<Kevin> He'sbrilliant.
<Kevin> He's the best illustrator I know.
<Kevin> I know two ilustrators.
<Kevin> sorry about the spelling.

<Moderator> <Miles-OKeefe> to <Moderator>: For Kevin: do you think a time will come that MST3K will become popular enough for a revival of the show? And if so, will you want to take part?

<Kevin> Any revival is entirely up to the audience...
<Kevin> we could push all day and never sell MST again...
<Kevin> So it's up to you, the viewer.

<Moderator> I think if it were entirely up to THIS audience, you'd be holding a puppet over your head right now.

<Kevin> Thennnnk yew.

<Moderator> <ProjectedPaul> to <Moderator>: When you list the worst movies you have seen, what would you say are the main factors, ie. a noncohesive storyline, terrible acting, that makes it worthy of that distinction?

<Kevin> The worst movie I have see tnis year...
<Kevin> is...
<Kevin> ready?
<Kevin> Town and Country.
<Kevin> Why?
<Kevin> Because not only did it suck bricks...
<Kevin> But it cost 90 million dollars.
<Kevin> reprehensible.

<Moderator> <Sampo> to <Moderator>: Hi, Kevin. Can you give us a little sneak preview of your book--maybe tell us about a particularly strange place you saw a movie?

<Kevin> Yes.
<Kevin> Hi CHris.
<Kevin> I was in Finland...
<Kevin> at the midnight sun film fest...
<Kevin> I saw "Intolerance" with a live orchestra.
<Kevin> brilliant.
<Kevin> the films ran all night.
<Kevin> the fest is above the Arctic Circle in Lapland.
<Kevin> Go.

<Moderator> Not to be the last to the party, but can you tell us a little more about this "book" you're writing?

<Kevin> The book is called "A Year At The Movies"...
<Kevin> I am examining the modern movie-going experience...
<Kevin> to that end, I am going to a theater and seeing a movie...
<Kevin> every single day for the entire year.
<Kevin> So far I have seen over four hundred movies...
<Kevin> in over fifty cities...
<Kevin> in ten countries and three continents...
<Kevin> oh. and Lpaland.
<Kevin> Lapland.
<Kevin> There.
<Kevin> Due out Summer '02

<Moderator> <Ben-Cohen> to <Moderator>: How's the book coming along? What's your favorite movie of the year so far?

<Kevin> My favorite movie is hard to say...
<Kevin> I am judging each movie-going experience...
<Kevin> The midnight sun film fest is high on my list...
<Kevin> "Sexy BEast" is brilliant as a film, see it...
<Kevin> And I drove accross the desert on Route 66...
<Kevin> In search of the Great American Drive-In, and I found it.
<Kevin> It's been a ball.
<Kevin> Oh, and Australia has the best theater chain in the entire world.

<Moderator> <Silvertig> to <Moderator>: For Mr. Murphy...what WAS it like to work on your new book? Did you literally see a movie a day or where there times when you just couldn't do it?

<Kevin> I have seen a movie every day, yes, and often more than one...
<Kevin> When I couldn't get to a theater, say in the Mexican desert...
<Kevin> I brought a movie projector and some classic films...
<Kevin> In a small fishing village in Mexico I showed Laurel and Hardy films at the local cantinas.
<Kevin> Beautiful.

<KarlSCIFI> Send any questions you have to the Moderator with /msg Moderator or simply
<KarlSCIFI> double-click on the Moderator's name in the list of names on the right
<KarlSCIFI> side of their screen.

<Moderator> <Queued> to <Moderator>: This bears a little more explanation. If the book is about films, why are you wandering all over the planet?

<Kevin> The book is about the experience of seeing films in public.
<Kevin> That is what cinema is by definition.
<Kevin> Cinema is a public art.
<Kevin> Just ask the producer of Red Zone CUba.

<Moderator> <emma-peel> to <Moderator>: Did you eat alot of popcorn while seeing all those movies?

<Kevin> Hell yes, but I prefer to sneak in my own.
<Kevin> This is how Paul Newman got started, because he felt that theater popcorn sucked, which it does.

<Moderator> Here's a two-fer:
<Moderator> <MSTieMuppet> to <Moderator>: when will you be doing another convention??? I really want to meet you Mr. Murphy, your my hero!
<Moderator> <MSTieMuppet> to <Moderator>: Question for Mr. Murphy - Will you be doing a signing tour for your books release?

<Kevin> Probably "No" on the convention, and a definite "Yes" on the book signing tour.

<Moderator> <Dialam> to <Moderator>: A question for the Great Kevin Murphy... Were you recognized by alot of people when you traveled to the different theatres?

<Kevin> Nobody recognizes the guy who sits under the desk...
<Kevin> Or wears a monkey mask...
<Kevin> And thank God for that.

<Moderator> <PrinceCaspian> to <Moderator>: Question for Kevin: how uncomfortable was it to dress as Professor Bobo?

<Kevin> The mask was very hot...
<Kevin> it gave me my first migraine ever.
<Kevin> and I nearly killed Brad Keely once just bacause the resinous toxins made me insane.

<Moderator> <ThickMcRunFast> to <Moderator>: The only question I have is... What is Kevin's favorite episode now that he looks back on MST3K?

<Kevin> They all blend together...
<Kevin> into one massive Lynchian Hallucinogenic Episode...
<Kevin> But I loved The Girl in the Gold Boots.

<Moderator> <moon> to <Moderator>: For Kevin - Did you keep any mementoes from MSTafter all the props were auctioned off from the show? Also, are their any plans to put out a complete MST Collosal Guide somewhere down the road?

<Kevin> The guys who run, Brian and Chris, have collected more episode guides...

<Kevin> They have a very fun and authoiritative site..
<Kevin> If you haven't been , go.
<Kevin> Also, the Sci-Fi episodes are logged by us on this very website...
<Kevin> by the charming and capable Sean Redlitz.
<Kevin> Visit here as well.

<Moderator> <xaviergc> to <Moderator>: Kevin, being the singing sensation that you are, what segment, or which song are you particularly proud of since the series inception?

<Kevin> I did the whole ball of wax...
<Kevin> on the United Servo Mens Chorus Hymn...
<Kevin> It brings me back to my childhood...
<Kevin> when I would sing barbershop with my Dad and my brothers.
<Kevin> It was the most fun for me.
<Kevin> Did you know we pitched another version of "MST 3K the Movie" to Universal?...
<Kevin> It was all singing and Dancing...
<Kevin> But they shot us down...
<Kevin> The bastards.

<Moderator> <Miles-OKeefe> to <Moderator>: And for Kevin, do you have any regrets leaving the show when you did?

<Kevin> What do you mean? I hung on 'till the bitch was cancelled!
<Kevin> Jesus.
<Kevin> No regets, honey.
<Kevin> add your own "r".

<Moderator> Perhaps the questioner was wondering if you weren't sorry you didn't bail out sooner...?

<Kevin> I didn't bail out sooner because it was the most fun I have ever had...
<Kevin> ...and the funniest, most creative group of people I have ever worked with, or ever will.
<Kevin> Making the show was ten times more fun than watching it, if you can believe that...
<Kevin> It was a gift I'll cherish all my life.

* Kevin tears up a little

<Moderator> <Truent> to <Moderator>: Kevin what do you think about digital distrobution of the so called "lost" mst3k episodes that may never be seen again, do you and the brains still share some notion of "keep circulating the tapes"?

* Kevin take a sip of his martini.

<Kevin> Circulate those buggers. Just don't charge for 'em.
<Kevin> Ideas are free, my friend.

<Moderator> <Kes> to <Moderator>: Would you consider licensing the concept of MST3K? I must be one of a small number of British fans (very few have been shown here) and would love to do a British version.

<Kevin> We actually have a very passionate group of Brit fans, and I think it would be lovely to do the show in, say, Swahili.
<Kevin> Kenyans are friggin' hysterical.

<Moderator> <Mick12> to <Moderator>: Any info on the Sci-Fi episodes of MST3k coming to VHS and DVD?

<Kevin> I have no clue. That's business, and I am in the Liberal Arts.

<Moderator> <Cal> to <Moderator>: Kevin, do you collect DVD's? If so, any DVD's in particular that you like a lot?

<Kevin> "Das Boot" is my favorite. Mike Nelson turned me onto it.
<Kevin> I have the "Lumiere Project" as well...
<Kevin> And I'm building my collection through Netflix.

<Moderator> I've been reminded that info on all upcoming MST3K episodes on home video, you can visit
<Moderator> <ProjectedPaul> to <Moderator>: Have you found that watching a movie with an audience makes it much better than having to watch it alone?

<Kevin> An audience is always better.
<Kevin> It's why we made "MST the MOvie" in the first place...
<Kevin> It's much more fun laughing in a crowd.\

<Moderator> <dre1> to <Moderator>: What do you think about George Lucas' idea to have digital feeds to cinemas?

<Kevin> I have seen the DLP technology, and for animation at least it's absolutely beautiful...
<Kevin> ...and disturbiung at the same time...
<Kevin> ...there are things you can do on the physical medium of celluliod...
<Kevin> ...that you will never be able to do on a computer...
<Kevin> so here's my idea...
<Kevin> let Hollywood have the digital distribution network...
<Kevin> and give all the film to Richard Linklater.

<Moderator> <DaddyO> to <Moderator>: What is the weirdest food or drink that has been served at a theater that you have been to? Did you partake of it?

<Kevin> Good Question...
<Kevin> I had raw peanuts in Mexico...
<Kevin> and they had an oyster bar right outside a theater in Sydney...
<Kevin> I prefer the oysters.
<Kevin> God Bless Sydney!!!!

<Moderator> <Kes> to <Moderator>: Is Kevin excited about the upcoming Lord Of The Rings movie? Or will he just hang around outside theaters waiting for 'Renaissance festival' types to appear so he can brain them with a leather mug?

<Kevin> Thank you.
<Kevin> I love the trilogy, don't get me wrong...
<Kevin> I guess it's all the hool;a surrounding it that gets me going...
<Kevin> Works of fantasy are best e=when the readers mind does ll the imagining...
<Kevin> that's why one single film will never satisfy a whole audience...
<Kevin> and it's dangerous for a commercial enterprise to coin a work of imagination for all time...
<Kevin> Get it, Micheal Eisner. you piece of filth?

<Moderator> <moon> to <Moderator>: Kevin - What was it like working on Timmy Big Hands? Were you disappointed that you had to discontinue the site?

<Kevin> Oohhhhhh.
<Kevin> Timmy was a ton of fun...
<Kevin> But the web is the worst investment opportunity sionce the derigible.
<Kevin> so we packed it in, but I'm proud off all the material we did.
<Kevin> of.

<Moderator> <invincor> to <Moderator>: Was Edward the Less thought up and worked on while you were still running or was this something SciFi asked you to do or did you pitch it to them, etc. etc.

<Kevin> Yes, we cooked up Edward while we were doing Timmy. ...
<Kevin> Sean called us and invited us to pitch ideas...
<Kevin> and Edward stuck to the wall.
<Kevin> they say.

<Moderator> <Ben-Cohen> to <Moderator>: Were you reluctant to produce something for Scifi again?

<Kevin> Hell no.
<Kevin> Sci Fi treated us far better than COmedy Central.
<Kevin> Barry, Tom Vitale and Sean and the rest of the folks still there are the best...
<Kevin> I'm happy to call them friends.
<Kevin> suck up time.

<Moderator> For those who've joined late, "Edward the Less" is an online series created by Kevin and some of his MST3K cohorts. Watch it now at:
<Moderator> <Obi-Won-Cannoli> to <Moderator>: being an audio book was it easier to make "edward" than MST3K and if so, did that leave you more room to be creative with the script?

<Kevin> It was easier physically...
<Kevin> because I didn't have to crouch and hold a puppet.
<Kevin> It was very liberating to do vioces without having to be seen.

*** Moderator has changed the topic on #auditorium to "Chat with Kevin Murphy now...see later!"

<Kevin> We were pretty faithful to the script when we recorded the thing...
<Kevin> Because the script was so damn funny.

<Moderator> <Mistyboy> to <Moderator>: How did it feel to get back with everyone to work on Edward the less? (sorry if I've sent this a jillion times)

<Kevin> That's okay. It was like old home week, like seeing the family members you like once again.

<Moderator> <Erhardt> to <Moderator>: Hiya, Kevin! I see that "Total Movie" magazine is publishing again. Are there any plans for you to resurrect your column for it?

<Kevin> They are?! I better call those freaks.
<Kevin> "Total Film" kept publishing in England, but Hell, they're English, so they didn;t get me.

<Moderator> <Torgotronic> to <Moderator>: Richard Corliss loves MST, but any idea if he's checked out Edward yet?

<Kevin> I got an email the day before it premiered wishing us the best, so Yes I think He saw it...
<Kevin> and like a good critic, he;s waiting to see a few episodes before he makes a judgement.

<Moderator> <Alex> to <Moderator>: What do you think of fans doing their own MST3K-like programs? (My friends and I are making one now)

<Kevin> I say go, girl...
<Kevin> or boy aws the case may be...
<Kevin> do what makes you happy...
<Kevin> just don't violate copyright laws.

<Moderator> <FoxMcCloud> to <Moderator>: I'd like to ask Kevin, what are some movies BBI considered for MST3K, but never selected/got the rights to use?

<Kevin> We dearly wanted to do "Charro," an El;vis Presly Movie...
<Kevin> ...and "Moment by Moment" with Lily Tomlin and John Travolta...
<Kevin> But we lost the rights at the last minute.
<Kevin> Damn.
<Kevin> Rowsdower...

<Moderator> <Israfel> to <Moderator>: Hiya kev, saw you/got your autograph at the NYC panel thing :) I was wondering why none of the rest of the cast came out to give autographs?

<Kevin> Becuase they don't love you like I love you.

<Moderator> <Ben-Cohen> to <Moderator>: I find that there's really nothing worth watching on TV anymore now that MST3K is gone. I thought GvsE was great, but that was cancelled too. My incredibly long-winded question is, do you watch T.V. at all? If so, what do you watch?

<Kevin> I have not watched much TV this year...
<Kevin> But I do watch the occasional Documentary on IFC or SUndance...
<Kevin> But that's where my fun is. I love docs.
<Kevin> And TV Ingeneral has always sucked, hasn't it?

<Moderator> <Mistyboy> to <Moderator>: How did you come up with the name "Soapwort McFuggletoes" for Edward the less? (PS, I'm making an MST3K-type thing, too!)

<Kevin> Truly it came out of thin air.
<Kevin> There was no committee meeting or anything.
<Kevin> When something sounds funny and hasn't ben used before, trust your instincts.

<Moderator> <trnoel> to <Moderator>: Is the creative part of Edward the Less completed now or are you still preparing segments for it?

<Kevin> Mike and I are still doing music...
<Kevin> but the writing and performing are in the can.

<Moderator> <invincor> to <Moderator>: There's a company in the UK called Big Finish who put out lots of audio drama CDs (like BBC licensed new Dr. Who audio dramas). Do you think this is something you and the others could do with Edward the Less? (put it out on CD I mean)

<Kevin> Hey, is this my agent?
<Kevin> Thanks for the tip. Sean, pan for gold.

<Moderator> We're on it.
<Moderator> <Silvertig> to <Moderator>: Can you tell us how many episodes Edward the Less will have? And by the way, it's a shame MST3K never came to Canada. I've had to tape trade for years and most people here have never even heard of it.

<Kevin> Edward is one season of thirteen shows, for now...
<Kevin> it all depends on the AUDIENCE...
<Kevin> and that's you and your friends..
<Kevin> and remember, word of mouth is the best advertising ion the world.

<Moderator> <Unarmed> to <Moderator>: Kevin: Does it bother you that you've attained a cult status, influencing devoted fans to lead their lives around a TV show?

<Kevin> Heck no. I have my own cult now...
<Kevin> and they do my bidding...
<Kevin> and let's put it bluntly, I have tasted human flesh...
<Kevin> and the tyastiest but is the buttocks, without question.

<Moderator> Well, speaking of cults...(awkward segue)...
<Moderator> <Greidanus> to <Moderator>: What do you think about Al Queda and the terrorists and stuff? (also, I'm that psychotic Boston girl at the Gateway convention and the Reunion last June!)

<Kevin> Well, hate is much easier than love...
<Kevin> that's the story of humanity, isn't it?

<Moderator> We've got about 10 more minutes left before Kevin has to go (probably to see another movie) send me your final questions now....
<Moderator> <emma-peel> to <Moderator>: Do you visit Caption This!?

<Kevin> And call in those pledges...
<Kevin> We have plenty of Dr Who mugs left...
<Kevin> I do not visit caption This, sorry...
<Kevin> But I love the fact that it's there and you folks have so much fun doing it.
<Kevin> Go nuts, kids.

<Moderator> <TServo4> to <Moderator>: What's your educational background? Did you major in anything? Has communications been a major impact in your lifestyle?

<Kevin> I have an M.A. in directing for stage and screen, and a B.A. in journalism...
<Kevin> the best thing I did in college was design my own program...
<Kevin> that and take mushrooms and ski.

<Moderator> But "just say no," kids.
<Moderator> <BPierce> to <Moderator>: Was it embarrassing you had to look up Tom's skirt when puppetrating him
<Moderator> ("puppetrate" is now my new favorite verb)

<Kevin> Surely not. Tom is packin' some thangs under that hoverskirt

<Moderator> <ShaniAnne> to <Moderator>: My kids and I would love to know what is your all time favorite song to belt out? Oh yeah, and they think you're cool <g>

<Kevin> Wang Dang Doodle by Howlin' Wolf.

<Moderator> <Queued> to <Moderator>: What's your favorite quote (from anywhere/anybody)?

<Kevin> Walt Whitman: "I celebrate myself and sing myself."
<Kevin> Oh, and Zappa: "If your parents knew how lame you really were, they would murder you in your sleep."

<Moderator> And our final question for the evening (apologies to all the great questions we received but didn't have time to ask):
<Moderator> <trnoel> to <Moderator>: Any words of insight or consolation with the impending end of MST3K on television coming up in a few months?

<Kevin> GET OVER IT.
<Kevin> Live and be wonderful.
<Kevin> Eat less pork, the Buddha died from it.
<Kevin> Oh, and keep circulating those tapes.

<Moderator> Great, thanks for your time tonight.

<Kevin> Goodnight and thanks to Sean and his crew.

<Moderator> Congrats on the Edward series...everyone go watch!

<Kevin> Thanks to ALL OF YOU, YOU ROCK!!!

<Moderator> we are now going unmoderated

<Silvertig> What PWNZ project now?

<TomServo> I thought Kevin left?

<Kevin> What the hell is PWNZ?!?

<DaddyO> Good TV: "Invader ZIM", "Aqua Teen Hungerforce", "Sealab 2021" (all truly demented)

<Mick12> Even though we can't hear it, could you sing a few lyrics from Kim Carnes' hit "Bette Davis Eyes"?

<Silvertig> Kevin probably will just not relpy and sit back in bemusement, so Silv jumps up and down hollering "Servo rocked!"

<Agent-Moldy> Kevin likes Guinness. I have the pictures...

<PaulMB> Beeper's R2D2's long lost cousin twice removed

<ThickMcRunFast> whoops

<Squeaky> I still like toast.

<xaviergc> To Kevin, when you watched a movie the half a dozen times necessary, did you get the jokes on the first run through or did it take a few screenings

<Crowbie> It's kooky......

<TomServo> "Bring on my Fiance!"

<xaviergc> To Kevin, when you watched a movie the half a dozen times necessary, did you create jokes on the first run through, or did you have to watch the movie a few times before they started flowing?

<Alex> I like Mikes!

<MSTieScott> "Paint my muscle car prune color, please."

<TServo4> My favorite line: I'm dyin' in a rush!

<simple> I didn't want to bumble or boggle the Fingal Dopple

<Kevin> Let's Bowl is definitely a show concerning bowling.

<MSTieMuppet> Kevin, do you like the Muppets?

<ProTH> "He learned too late that Coco Wheats CAN'T be beat."

<ThickMcRunFast> how odd


<Ben-Cohen> Mr. Murphy sir, I know that you are, or at least were, a Vonnegut fan. What's your favorite Vonnegut book and why? I've just been getting into his stuff and I found "Cat's Cradle" to be very relevent to the present situation. I heard that those guys that run the nuclear clock are considering moving the minute hand even closer to midnight.

<Agent-Moldy> "Let's Bowl" is great!

<invincor> oh, I don't know... it's about "Let's" as well

<xaviergc> i gotta eat more flavo fibes!

<TheNobleOne> I like my left big toe because it comforts me at night

<TServo4> What's your favorite ice cream flavor?

<PaulMB> Kevin, are you gonna see Monsters Inc?

* TomServo hears Barb Tebben coming down the stairway.

<Crowbie> It was real.
