MST3K Dreams?

Have you ever had some aspect of MST3K subconsciously make it in to your dreamworld?

Just had one last night where I started working for the MST3K team. (Hired!)

Even though, the headquarters were located in both the basement and first floor of a hospital right next to a small swimming pool that was packed out with people, including some Doctor from the hospital in a speedo… The bots were alive on their own without any puppetry assistance. (my mind did not provide any explanation on why this was possible, but I reminded myself that this was just a dream and I relaxed about it)

At the end of the dream I was meeting with Kevin who was there to provide some additional training on writing and whatever. I guess I must have been in the pool also at some point cause my hair was all wet.

Anyway, I know Crow hates it when people tell him about their dreams, but have you ever had any MST3K related ones?

Joel and Mike had a talent contest and then riffed a movie in the theater together. I didn’t recognize the movie. It was some garishly colored 80s thing involving a haunted fraternity house or something.

There was some kind of vote afterwards. Mike won the cook-off but Joel won the dance-off. I mean, I kinda’ expected the reverse, but since when do dreams adhere to earthbound logic?

I could not see the robots, but I could hear them. I think they were judging the events from off-camera.

(Fans of Jonah and Emily shouldn’t take this personally, as it happened many years before the revival. )

I had a nightmare once when I was stuck in the doors segment. The doors just kept going on and on and on.

I’ve had a few but the two I mostly remember was one where I don’t remember exactly what happened, but Joel had his KTMA hair with his current, receding hairline, and the other was just me helping Mike install a wall mounted TV.

I went to church on Easter to find that instead of a sermon they were showing ‘Warrior of the Lost World.’

When the movie ended, the pastor said we all had to pay $15 so we could get white hats like Rommel in the movie.

I stood up and shouted, ‘You idiot! Rommel was in Sidehackers!’

Sleeping with the 24/7 channel going I had a dream Joel and the bots were doing a variety show telethon on the SOL. One segment had Crow with a mic interviewing people on the floor of a convention. The segment had a pretty funny title, something about humans, but I can’t find that I recorded it anywhere.

Absolutely! I was serious when I wrote this:

In that dream, I attempted to buy as many servo head candy dispensers as I could, with the honorable intention of sharing them freely with the MST3K community. I’m actually proud of how thoughtful my “dream self” was. :sunglasses:

I have to admit I get pretty tickled at the idea of me shouting at a minister on Easter about MST.

My mom would have a spasm.

Or the door segments from the Netflix seasons turned us into pancakes.

I went to sleep watching Rocky Jones and dreamt up an episode of MST3K that doesn’t exist featuring a couple Rocky Jones episodes that don’t exist cobbled together into a movie that doesn’t exist.

My memory of what it was about is hazy… The invention exchange had pants with wheels? I dunno…

I fell asleep watching an episode of MST3k and dreamed Dr. F and Frank were riffing my dream! It was a pleasant experience.

That wouldn’t be a bad experiment!

BTW, when I mentioned this dream to MR_Potroast, he asked if the movie our dream-hosts were watching might be Rock 'N Roll Nightmare. But that can’t be, because I’d neither heard of it nor seen it back then. Too bad. It would’ve been a fitting unconscious choice.

This kind of thing happens to me more than just a bit. If I fall asleep while watching MST3K, my dreams tend to make up (or auto-complete) the episode I was watching. Sometimes, the dream follows the movie/episode closely; other times, it goes way off-script.

This is my first post so hi everyone. This dream was super weird and happened just a few days ago. I remember my dreams about 0.1% of the time so this was a significant event for me. Thanks for helping me out Jonah.

My wife and I were headed to the Live show we had tickets for in New Haven, CT. The venue is outside and we all have to sit on benches. I get really thirsty so I head off in search of water. There’s a water fountain attached to a run down shack and I drink lots of water and fill up a large thermos. I finish the water before I even get back to our seats. Then I feel very sick. My wife comes to check on me and my palms have turned white.
This proves that I have been poisoned. I’m sick the entire show and no one even notices that I’m really ill just laying there in the grass. Two janitors in tan jumpsuits put some caution tape around the water fountain. The show ends and everyone leaves, ignoring us. After that Jonah walks up and says, “Hey man don’t worry. I’m sick too and this medicine I have will knock that right out”. He hands me 3 white capsules and I swallow them right away because I trusted Jonah unconditionally. I get better. Thanks, man.

Totally nuts I know. Thanks for reading.
