Tim Ryder : Grand Emperor of Baritone Appreciation thread

Not sure if a thread has been started already, if so, merge or delete as necessary, but yes, many a thread is dedicated to various parts of the mst3k machine but I have not seen one for the Summer Bliss drinking, Malibu Servo that is the wonderful Tim Ryder. Great fun on all the various livestreams and watchalong features and looking forward to more of the same :slightly_smiling_face:

Tim Ryder likes a fair few of my posts. Watch this be the one he flags instead :sweat_smile:

Tim tried to stop me from watching the Munchie[s] trilogy back to back, but I was already in it when I saw his message. Alas, I could not be saved, but we should never forget the valiant attempt at heroism.

We shall never forget those who have fallen to the Munchie trilogy. Those who gave their time to save the rest of us. :star2:

Not only that, but Timmy Timsters also selfies himself on Instagram, and ends each of his post with… “dang”. Plus, he even liked my Time Bubble Tour fanart, and 45 more of my posts!

How many rides could @timryder ride if @timryder could ride rides? :thinking:

Also, I never knew that Tim appreciated baritones so much. What a swell guy!

Maybe I should appreciate them more, too. What level of devotion would get me Grand Empress status?

Let’s say that… we “dared” you to be appreciated.

Vell, Tim’s just zis guy, you know?

He seems like a really cool guy in the live streams, and he hangs around with us lot liking posts and stuff. It’s always fun to see people who work on a show/game/whatever lurking amongst the fandom and engaging with them. He could be here right now, watching us from the shadows! I’ve already praised his cast wrangling directing skills elsewhere.

He’s also part of the most recent MST3K power couple with Rebecca!

Tim Ryder? Isn’t he the guy who works on that puppet show where they talk during the movie? Meh.

Having Tim around is awesome, especially for the live threads and behind-the-scenes topics. Like I’ve said before, it’s almost surreal knowing we’re directly interacting, on some level, with the cast and crew (of which Tim is technically both!)

I really think the insight that he and Devon, Grant and Conor (among the many other writers/cast members here) provide on the episodes is something we’d only receive in the ACEG books during the original run.

His interactions are one of the reasons I love being here, and especially feel like I’ve invested well as a backer.

Even beforehand, it was always awesome seeing Tim on the “pre-Gizmoplex” MST3K streams. His rapport with the cast and overall demeanor added a ton to the atmosphere of those streams.

Now I can look back at the Season 11 and 12 shows and yell out “TIIIIM!” with absolute confidence whenever Bonehead #1 is on screen. Hoping a Season 13 cameo is on the way as well.

…and he almost always has a can of brew for the streams :beer:
(at least for the kickstarter watch-a-longs he did)

I like Tim.

He smells like new-fallen snow and is snuggly like a baby goat. Or possibly other way 'round.

He replied to a post of mine once, and I squeed! It is really cool to know that there are people behind the show who are also part of this community.

Any other cast and crew wanting to feel the love, send 'em over. We’re pretty good at appreciating.
