From the Poobah


Good new episode yesterday, in spite of the awful reverb inside the Mystery Science Theater. It's good to see the Mads settle in again at a permanent home. The burden of constructing sets must've been to rough on "Pantleg" and the other Brains. The new home reminds me very much of Deep 13... And it should be that way. Clayton and Frank (and Larry and Pearl) lived there for seven years and produced a lot of outrageous comedy. Why should this new residence be any different? Big knees, good, go with it.
In other news, game two of Jeopardy!-esque MST3K Trivia is underway. Go and play it for your chance to win a Rhino MST tape of your choice! If you forget your user ID and password, don't be afraid to ask me.



"Jet Jaguar's Canadian MST Adventure" by kret0419@blue.UnivNorthCo.edu


Greetings, fellow MST viewers! I'm Jet Jaguar, AKA Sabin Rene Figaro, AKA etc. In this article I will be reviewing Toronto, from a MST point of view. Hmmm, where to begin. It's hard to find any other fans up there, for one. Everyone up there is infatuated with Mike Myers, Dana C., and of course, the Toronto-based Kids in the Hall. However, while playing Hockey in Sault Ste. Marie, I did find a couple of fans who "liked that show with the funny robots and that white guy..."
I'll never understand some Canadian humor. We have it so much better than Canada! I mean, we have turkey, pizza, burgers, etc., and they have... bacon. Beer too, I must add. (I am a college student!) But it's hard to find any presence of MST3000, so I have to give the US and Sci-Fi Channel the THUMBS UP. More later...

"MMMMMMMM" by jdzarnst@hilltop.ic.edu


We have two very good questions for the first official edition of MMMMMMMM, so let's dive right in, shall we?


I don't know the answer to either of these, so I throw them out to all of you. Get down with your bad selves and show how much more intelligent and cultured MSTies are compared to the rest of the population!


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


#1 from Joshua_P._Munn Fri Mar 6 01:04:45 1998


In episode 805, The Thing That Couldn't Die, Servo sings a little tune whenever someone calls, "Jessica!" It goes something like, "Do do do do do do, dododo!" What's that all about?


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I was wondering that myself. Good question.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


#2 from s364128@pop.urgrgcc.edu Fri Mar 6 01:04:48 1998


Ok, I have two questions. What does Frank say at end of "Operation Double 007"? He's supposed to be speaking in German and I don't know any German. So can you give me the English tranlation? Also, in one where Mike and 'Bots are suposed to an imitation of Spanish kids' tv show (I think it's Parts: the Clonus Horror, but I could be wrong). What the heck do they say? I took 3 years of Spanish, but I didn't do well in it.
So can you help me out?


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I really should be able to help you out on that German one (it's one of my majors here at Purgato- I mean, college. Unfortunately, I don't have that episode on tape anymore, so I don't know what he says. If someone can send me a close phonetic approximation of what he says, I can probably puzzle you out a translation. As for Spanish, no comprendo.


So there you have it, folks. These people's lives and mental health are now in your hands.


Send answers/ideas/other questions to jdzarnst@hilltop.ic.edu, and if any of you are going on spring break like I am, stay out of the sun! Shy from the holy light of Ishtar! They are EVIL! They must be DESTROYED!


Heh heh... sorry.


Refueler.........................................Is he real, or is he memorex?



"Jenny For Your Thoughts" by S364128@urgrgcc.edu


Ok, I'm in my dorm room bed trying to think of what to write this month and coming up blank. I can't write about the new Season 9 MST3K episode because I have turn in my article by the 14th at midnight and there's no way I'm going to write an article at midnight. The second reason is because I only have access to the lab computers at my school, which closes at 5 pm. Sorry, but I'm too cheap to get my own computer when there are fine computers that I can use for free. The third reason is that exams are the next week and if I'm going stay up to midnight is to study. I still can't believe that exams are just before the premiere episode of MST3K. It must be some sick joke that my teachers are pulling on me. So I sit here with no clue what I can write about and thinking I could write how I can't write an article about my thoughts of the new Season 9 episode. But that would be sad. Then a commercial for VH-1 Save the Music comes on. (My college doesn't get MTV but does get the Sci-Fi Channel, so I'm happy.) It says how we should sponsor music programs to help out kids, which I'm totally for. But this the idea of Mr. B Natural dancing in front of these kids comes into my head.
It amazes me how things like that can remind me of MST things or characters from an episode. Does this happen to anyone else? You're sitting there, minding your own business, then WHAM! Something reminds you of MST3K or an episode. Not normal things that are supposed to remind you of MST3K, like bad movies, but obscure, weird stuff.
Let give a few you examples. In my chemistry class, every time the teacher mentions sodium, I smile because of "Horror at Party Beach." Every time someone mentions monkeys, I think of Professor Bobo. I used to work at an arts and crafts store, and after I saw "Danger! Death Ray!," I almost laughed when someone asked me where the pinking shears were. When I see things on TV about robots, I think of the three lovable robots on the SOL. There is a restaurant called "Dale's." Every time I see ads for it, I think of that line that MST used, "I thought you were Dale." Doctors with last name that start with F, cheeses, the color flourescent green, and dog bones: all of them remind me of MST3K. I can't wait to see the new episode and see what new, strange, or ordinary things will remind me of MST3K. If anything strange or ordinary reminds you of MST3K, write me and tell me what it is and why, if you can. S364128@urgrgcc.edu.
