MST3K Vol.10 today



This is the wholly complete reason for everything that is good and peaceful in my life (well, JK) And it is the only reason I go to a Best Buy two times a year. The anticipation is immense.


Godzilla vs. Megalon Episode 212


This is everything I hoped it would be. Easily the best of the 4-disc set. Season 2 was the first really funny season. It was the modern era of MST and this was the best episode of the time. It has Godzilla, Megalon and a killer robot named Jet Jaguar. A rare Japanese film. Beautiful on its own.

The Giant Spider Invasion Episode 810



One of my favorites. It’s greasy and disgusting and from the 70’s. The actual “Spider” at the end of the movie is one of the most jaw-dropping special effects I’ve ever seen in a movie. And, when Alan Hale Jr (Skipper) lets out a cheesy smile, Servo gives us “Pudding!”. So if yell out "pudding!" in the middle of a conversation, you'll know why.

SWAMP DIAMONDS (plus short: WHAT TO DO ON A DATE) Episode 503



This is a Roger Cormon film so it moves really slow and awkward and has escaped female convicts wrestling in the swamp over hidden diamonds.

TEEN-AGE STRANGLER (plus short: IS THIS LOVE?) Episode 514



I love this episode and it looks completely home-made so, as usual, it’s really dark and the creepy night scenes look like they’re lit with a flashlight. And, ofcourse with all the movies at this time, the teenagers are played by 40 year-old actors.

Comic Book Creation



As usual, this Fall, I will be teaching an 8-week Comic art course in the Continuing studies department at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Here is a photo of one of my classes in action. Wouldn't you like to learn to draw comics like these people? I often dress up as a soldier of the 19th Century Spanish army and whack students with my scabbard who don't rule their borders correctly.
