Wasn’t Jim Mallon the only one who the crew has issues with?
I definitely don’t remember either a heckler or Joel saying that. I was at the Indianapolis show if that means anything.
Supposedly, according to the rumors, Joel asked Trace and Frank to be a part of Season 11 and then changed his mind.
Was here in NWFL/Lower AL.
Maybe not, but some of the fan work out there is amazing.
I should’ve ruthlessly screen-grabbed a few thousand images before I nuked my Tumblr back in the day. Not for nefarious purposes, of course. Just to have 'em around a while longer. <3
Joel said The Cheesy Movie Circus would be his last time TOURING. Plenty of bands stop touring, but still record or do one-off shows. The Beatles being a notable example.
Just read the update. This statement Joel made towards the end really got to me:
My sincere thanks for all your enthusiastic support so far. We’ve got a hill to climb, but together I believe we can do it. MST3K has come back from low points before, and it’s always happened with the support of the community.
I believe too.
In a high inflation environment, “just waiting” would have made that “extremely high base goal” cost even more.
But even if he changed his mind, so what. As a fan of Bunuel, I’m glad he kept unretiring (this movie is my last… doodley doodley do… now, this movie will be my last. Only dying stopped him).
As a fan of Joel’s I hope he keeps going, even if it’s only on shorts, even if it’s riffing on trailers with Matt. Riff until you can’t riff no more.
Someone make a Maggie Simpson “Do It For Her” poster with Joel saying “Do It For Him”
To be fair if this falls through and everybody tries again I’d just donate then, too
The current state of things is between all of them, but my understanding is that there was some bad blood after the end of Cinematic Titanic (basically that Joel ended it unilaterally?), Mike has been historically upset that he was never more than staff (no producer credit), and some claims that Frank and Trace were invited back then uninvited to the revival or not offered a reasonable fee or something.
That said, they all seem to be on basically friendly terms these days, whether they want to participate directly or just give friendly shouts out to each others projects.
Why am I reading this with the tone/delivery of that line from Reefer Madness:
“If this turns out to be another talking penguin I will just smoke more weed.”
So say we all!
Man because now it sounds that way to me, too
That would be sweet!!!
The main problem I see now is that if, against all odds, I’m correct some innocent soul on staff at Gizmonic is going to be accused of gossipping to the fans when it’s really just the Law of Averages or Monkeys Type Shakespeare Syndrome happening.
So just in case, [clears throat] in advance, I’m sorry, Gizmonics. Cheating is bad. Richard Basehart is good.
Bravo well said!
