Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Thread Of Fate
I will drive the five hours to Houston for this. They didn't even come that close last time.

Now let's see 2001 in 70mm get closer than 400 miles.

I just got my ticket for Space Mutiny on Thursday as well as tickets for The Brain and Deathstalker in NYC. Now I just need to figure out how the hell I'm getting there.

I also just pre-ordered the MST3K Lost & Found Collection:

I already own XIV and XVII....but I gotta have it. Now I understand why my friend owns a dozen different copies of Evil Dead.

Got tickets for both Orlando shows. Managed to get the same seat for both shows too.

And fuck Ticketmaster to death for adding a nearly $12 service charge onto the ticket cost. I fail to see how I was provided $12's worth of service during my ticket ordering experience.

Supposedly, one of the movies for the new season just leaked. I can't remember how to add spoiler tags, so I'll just link to the fan site where I first read the news:

Yeah I think it's a great choice if true.

I don't want to spoil it, but there's an actor who would be perfect for a guest appearance if this movie shows up on Season 12.
Reply
If that spoiler is accurate, they would probably have to literally wrestle that particular actor offset to prevent him from showing up.
Reply
Please let that movie really happen! It's a perfect choice.
If we can dream it, then we can do it.

If it does come to that, I hope it's the only celebrity cameo this season. While none of the cameos last season were bad, they didn't really add anything, either.

I disagree. Anytime NPH shows up and sings, it adds value.
I can't stand to see myself go through the motions, that bring me back into these same old sad emotions.

I'd love to see them riff Savage Weekend.

BIG MCLARGEHUGE! TONIGHT!

I watched RiffTrax Julie & Jack last night--I can't believe the actress in that movie went on to actually be some what of a "star". The guy in the movie had less acting chops than Tommy Wiseau. It was pretty funny, and it was also funny to see actors that were also in Birdemic, especially the woman that played the mom, who--wait for it--plays a mom in this movie too! And holy shit, Tippi Hedren is in this movie? What the hell? And there is a "The Birds" joke!

I also appreciated Jerry Seinfeld, because what the fuck is Jerry Seinfeld doing on MST3K? Playing a sketch character, no less.

I found his appearance on the show kind of bizarre. It immediately brought to mind Prince of Space.

Prince: Leave the children alone!
Crow: You hear that, Jerry Seinfeld?

I do agree that celebrity cameos feel kind of out of place on MST3K.  The standout by a wide margin was Mark Hamill.  He really sunk his teeth into it.

I think Jerry and Joel are buddies. Joel was on one of the early episodes of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
Reply
Yeah, they met while Joel was doing stand-up in the 80s. Joel actually appears at the beginning of Jerry's "Stand-Up Confidential" HBO special.

Joel posted this message on the Kickstarter page on June 1st:

Quote:Starting on June 12th, we're launching our first MST3K Revival League "Pledge Drive," where we'll be offering a bunch of neat gifts for those of you who want to get involved again, including several that backers asked us to bring back for Season 12, including chances to...
BE A PRODUCER: Get credited on the new episodes, IMDB and the poster!
ADOPT CROW & SERVO: Own one of the robots used on screen! 
BE IN THE CREDITS: We're offering a limited number of "special thanks"! 
OWN SEASON 12: Collector's Edition Box Set and Digital Downloads! 
GET SEASON 12 GIFTS: Official Poster and Official Tote Bag

I haven't been able to find anything else online about the pledge drive.

I saw the Space Mutiny show last night. Fun, but a little underwhelming. I actually thought the HG Wells short at the beginning was funnier. I guess it's hard to top the original mst3k episode. Krull looks promising, though.

Speaking of Reb Brown movies, I'm currently watching Yor, the Hunter from the Future and I think it'd make for prime mst3k fodder. Only 20 minutes in, and there's already been a cheesy theme song, a fight with cavemen, and Reb Brown drinking the blood of a fanged papier-mâché triceratops.

I think it was that they've done the movie before and it's such a beloved episode that, even with new jokes, this felt a little like a retread. It was still fun, and we got some new additions to the David Ryder roll call.

Just noticed that when Joel made the Kickstarter update he said they started filming on that Monday (the 4th), then later that week on Instagram, Jonah said the following Friday(the 8th) was the last day of "shooting for season 12". Dunno if that includes theater segments, but I'd assume so.

Either way, even with just six episodes, that seems like an intense schedule.
Reply
Fist McFacePunch! Space Mutiny was very fun--as mentioned, not as good as the original MST3K, but still fun. And everyone in the theater lost it when the continuity error happened, as I guess most of the folks had never seen it before. "Hey! Really enjoyed your funeral!"

So I may have ordered these...

The Season 12 pledge drive starts today.

I was able to pre-order the season box set on DVD and got my little brother's name in the credits of one episode. For some reason my credit card wouldn't work on the site but my PayPal account linked to the same card did work. Weird.
