See? If Wile E. Coyote Had One of These, He’d Be Eating Roadrunner Right Now

[6ft Rockets in Slow Motion – The Slow Mo Guys] (Viewer #1,174,140)

I never got into model rocketry. Mostly because I lived in town and there were way too many trees and rooftops to fire anything into the air without dire call-the-fire-department consequences. But burning and exploding will always be the two coolest things in the world, and rockets kinda do both, so what could be more fun than to watch it happen spark by spark?

Heck, I Don’t Pay Eskimos to Kill Whales, and I LIKE Dead Whales

The Washington Post suggested that PBS’s budget was cut because Sesame Street had mocked Trump.

No, it’s being cut because people who don’t watch Sesame Street shouldn’t HAVE to pay them to mock Trump. Or do anything else.

Not the First Time She’s Used the Phrase

In California, the Orange Coast College professor who called Donald Trump’s election “an act of terrorism” was named “Faculty Member of the Year” by her colleagues.

About time! It’s tragic how she never got FMotY during all those years when she just yelled that at her bathroom scale.

Oh Look… It’s President Obama’s Legacy…

Illinois lawmakers actually voted down a proposal to create a statewide “Barack Obama Day” holiday.

Don’t know why. It was to be celebrated by randomly murdering someone. It’s already quite popular in Chicago.

Cartoon of the Day – Unmasking

[Glenn McCoy]

The press should always report the truth, regardless of who it hurts or helps. But, when the press takes the side of one party or ideology, it’s nothing more than a propaganda tool. And that’s what we have today.

Gettin’ ready for the new MST3K

You knew it was coming back on the 14th, right?

[The YouTube]

Yep, Mystery Science Theater 3000 is back — or will be back, really soon. Like a week and a half. Not even that long. On the 14th. So, yeah, soon.

Are you ready? I’m not. But I’m getting ready.

First, I need to subscribe to Netflix. I don’t ever watch Netflix, what with Hulu and iTunes and Amazon and TiVo and everything. I had Netflix, but never watched it, so I stopped paying for it. Plus they ticked me off about something, but I don’t remember just what. Anyway, I’ll need to subscribe to Netflix, since that’s where you can watch it.

Also, I thought about watching the old episodes again, but I watch the occasional episode every week anyway, so I’m not doing that. I actually did that before, back in 2011 & 2012. I started at the beginning, with the KTMA episodes. You can’t buy them, but you can find them if you look hard enough. Honestly, unless you have those on a bucket list, it’s like a pre-season football game. It doesn’t really satisfy, but you can see them training and growing and working the kinks out. Some of the host segment are really good, so good they were redone for the national series. If you want to read my reviews of the KTMA episodes, start here.

If you want to start with the official Season One, start here. I watched them in the original airdate order, which is slightly different than most episode lists you see. It only makes a difference in a couple of places but the first season has one of those places.

If you want to just look at the overall review of all the episodes, videos, and what-not, try this link. Use the sidebar to go to particular ones you want. Or, just watch them in order (if you own them or can find them) and see if you think about them like I do.

Anyway, what I’ve been doing that’s MST3K related is finding the original uncut, unedited, un-MSTied versions of the movies and shorts that aired and watching them. Why? I dunno. Maybe to see what the MST3K crew had to go through. Maybe just to say I did. That last one seems more likely, knowing me like I do.

But what about you? What are you doing to get ready for the relaunch of MST3K?
