Finally Friday … Open Thread

It’s finally Friday, the day we’ve been waiting for all week. And, it’s Friday night! So, if you’re not out partying, that’s okay, because it’s our own Friday Night Party. Or Open Thread. Same thing.

What’s on your mind? Got a joke to tell? Got a dirty secret to tell? It’s all good.

Who wants to start?

13

It was 47 years ago tonight that Apollo 13, having lifted off from their launch pad at Cape Kennedy three days earlier, suffered an explosion en route to the moon. It nearly cost the astronauts their lives.

There have been a lot of things written, and even a decent movie made about the mission. But nothing really compared to actually watching unfold live. Unless you were part of NASA trying to get the astronauts back. Or were one of the astronauts.

I was not quite a teenager, and I remember being glued to the TV as much as I could. I watched the liftoff that Saturday, but wasn’t able to see much during the week, what with school and the TV networks not that interested in “routine” moon missions.

The routine turned into anything but when the explosion happened.

Yes, it’s a long video. That’s why I waited until suppertime to post this. Enjoy.

MST3K Question of the Day: Favorite Song

As Mystery Science Theater 3000 returns, let’s take some time and think about the older series. There were 199 episodes, counting the KTMA season and the movie, but not the pilot/promo. But, for our purposes, we’ll not count the pilot/promo nor the KTMA season, okay?

So, here’s today’s question: Which song performed by the MST3K crew is your favorite?

For me, there are too many to list. I’ve always enjoyed “Tubular Boobular Joy,” “Hired! The Musical,” and “Where, O Werewolf.” But, it’s probably gotta be “Loving Lovers Love.” But what’s your favorite?

Liberals that believe both are true. I’m not smart enough to understand that way of thinking. Or stupid enough.
