Future Wax!

I am ridiculously excited about tomorrow night’s tribute ep.

I love that one. There some jokes that aged poorly, but oh my goodness the rest is still so good.

Yeah. I find its painful earnestness a delight. One of those episodes I can watch over and over again. Along with the much-maligned Hamlet.

The fat jokes really haven’t aged well, but what can ya’ do? :man_shrugging:

Did someone say Future Wax?

…there were a surprising number of MST3K themed candles in my search.

I used to rent a house in an almost entirely Latino neighborhood in L.A. and it had a built-in nook in the hallway for prayer candles. I would have killed for those Tom and Crow candles, but the landlord might have killed me.

I got my sister a Joe Strummer prayer candle one Christmas. Joe in robes. It was a big hit.

Are you sure you’re not thinking of a phone nook?

Well it had prayer candles in it when I moved in. And a crucifix in the living room. He wasn’t too happy we took those things down, but he couldn’t do anything about it.

These were a very common thing in a certain generation of home, and most of them are now used for decoration. In my relatively Catholic area of the world, I saw the candle thing pretty often. Usually these homes also had the Virgin Mary grotto in the yard.

Bathtub Mary and Jeebus grottos are uniquely weird, and make me wonder whether a particular type of bathtub has been identified as the most desirable for yard religious iconography.

Like, is there a FB group or something where they debate this stuff?

Oh gosh, I would buy these with real money dollars.

Good news then, because I swiped the images from an Etsy page. :slight_smile:

$16 is a lot for a candle, but I’m tempted.

Man, there’s something about career B movie actors that I like a lot. It seems so pure and unpretentious, somehow.
