To celebrate the 25th anniversary of MST3K’s national debut, WIRED presents an oral history of the greatest talk-back show ever made. It all begins in the late ’60s in rural Wisconsin, where there was this guy named Joel, not too different from you or me …
Just the best thing. And don’t miss this part:
Joel Hodgson: It was an idea I’d had tucked away in the back of my mind since high school: On Elton John’s Goodbye Yellow Brick Road album, there are illustrations in the liner notes. And for the song “I’ve Seen That Movie Too,” it’s got little silhouettes watching a movie. I remember going, “Someone should do a show like that. Run a movie and have these people in silhouettes say stuff.”
The feature-length film about DIY pioneer Jeff Rosenstock, who put his songs online for free and redefined punk for the internet age.
This is a really cool thing
fund this fund this fund this
I watched the trailer seven time today and I cried seven times today.
Please watch it and donate what you can so I can do some feature-length crying sometime in the future
one of my favourite things to imagine is a teenage tom riddle making up his new intimidating nickname. just sitting at his desk and carefully printing “TOM MARVOLO RIDDLE” on the parchment. writing down “I AM LORD” and looking at the remaining letters. TOMVORDLE. no that’s no good. TORDOVLEM. absolutely not. VOLDEMORT. yes. good. this is gonna make a dramatic reveal one day. hell yeah.
even when im not laying facedown on the floor literally, i am always laying facedown on the floor figuratively. in my heart or whatever.
Hobo Nickels from the 1930s
Hobo Nickels are a form of sculptural art. The nickel was favored due to its size, thickness and softness. Even though the medium was popular amongst hobos due to its cheapness, it is a generic term as it was used by many different kinds of people.
What did they carve them with? That kind of sounds fun…
Except for the fact that I’m pretty sure it’s illegal to deface money
They carved them with rebellion
