I’m really proud to be a MSTie because the MST3K fandom is so reasonable and friendly. Most of the time you have about 6 months before a fandom goes south and you’ve got teenage girls gutting each other over non-canon gay couples, but it’s been like 20+ years and nope no drama here.
I met a fellow MSTie at the art supply store today! This older gentleman behind the paper counter asked me what my t-shirt said, and I answered “It’s ‘Push the button Frank’, something from a show called MST3K that was on in the 90s blah blah”- the usual stuff I say when people ask about the shirt.
His eyes lit up immediately- “Oh man I LOVED that show! I watched it religiously with my buddy when it was airing!” I couldn’t believe it- I’ve always worn that t-shirt to find MSTies and have had no success till today! We blabbed about our favorite episodes for awhile, and it was marvelous. He was definitely a Joel fan (which put me on the spot a little cuz I prefer Mike episodes by a tiny margin over Joel episodes), but man was it fun to fangasm with another MSTie! :D
When I left, I said “Keep circulating the tapes” over my shoulder. He gave me the thumbs up and said he would.
It was so good to see Pearl helping Steven out like this and cheering him on like the ultimate soccer mom. I missed that so much. I hope it only gets better!
So the mayor’s family founded Beach City! That explains his desperation to do
a good job–and it also speaks volumes to his character that he is not
pressuring his son into following in the family business. This must be what Matt Burnett meant when he said Dewey and Pearl were “like twins” in behavior! Both he and
Pearl fear failing those they care about, and feel as though they ARE
failures if they don’t appear perfect. I was so happy to see he and Buck share a moment at the end.
Joel was freaking hilarious, it really sounded like he enjoyed this ep too. Also I still geek out that Rebecca is a fellow MSTie.
GOOD NERVOUS BIRB PARENT SQUAD GO
Write his speeches for him, Porl, he’s freaking terrible at it.
TO ALL INTERNATIONAL MSTIES LIKE ME WHO WANT TO WATCH THE TURKEY DAY MARATHON BUT CAN’T...
I have a solution. Get a VPN like ModifyHeaders, enable it, then go to Pluto.tv and watch the marathon on channel 545. I tested it, it actually shows the MST3K Channel that will show the marathon, unlike the international Pluto.tv which doesn’t show the channel at all.
Good luck, international MSTies. And remember, just because we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, doesn’t mean we don’t celebrate Turkey Day
Been a MSTie for a few years now– the show’s helped me laugh and stay positive through some tough times in college and work. I was delighted to hear Joel as Mayor Dewey on Steven Universe, and knew I totally had to draw a crossover. Happy Turkey Day to those hardworking folks over at Gizmonics!
