MST3K is going on a live tour during summer 2017 and last night (06/27), Joel announced who would be performing Tom Servo on said tour*. It’s Bonehead #1, Tim Ryder!! This was a unanimous cast decision and I am so excited and happy for him. (I might have giggled and squealed a little. This is so cool.)
Naturally, I had to do this. He is TIM SERVO!
(*Baron Vaughn cannot go on the tour–His wife is going to have a baby soon! Think good thoughts for our soon-to-be pops of the group!)
As Mark asked in his birthday vlog, I’m sharing the video that made me subscribe.
Honestly, I don’t remember how it happened. Five Nights at Freddy’s just came out at the beginning of that school year, and one of my friends insisted to go check it out on Mark’s channel. I did, but I don’t think I cared to check out anything else. I liked the game, and thought he was funny, but I was (and still am) pretty picky when introduced to a new channel.
Later that school year, the day this video was uploaded, YouTube suggested I watch it. After this video, I started watching every single day all the way up to today. Nothing, not a single bible verse, or coach, or inspirational speaker, has ever evoked the feeling that this video gave me. Mark showed something really special right then, and I saw it again in today’s birthday vlog.
I still revisit this video when I’m feeling blue, and it has never gotten old. Thanks @markiplier for everything, and happy birthday.
Once upon a time there was a fucking queen. She had it all: the glory, the power. Worshippers eager to give and grateful to receive. Why? Because she had the gift of the gift. The blessing of blessings, hers to bestow. And her place of worship? Oh, that was the place to be.
Can we talk about American Gods? We really have a dark-skin black woman playing a Biblical Queen and a Love Goddess. We have Black People portraying Egyptian Gods. The lead of the show is black. They have West African Gods being portrayed on mainstream media. Seeing black people’s mythology and history represented on screen by black actors is a big thing. People aren’t even aware of nor regard the several figures in Abrahamic religions being African. .
