i remember the “selling their kid on ebay” story…
Who sells their kid on ebay? That’s nuts.
That’s a child. A living being that you made.
That shit goes on etsy.
Hey there, friends! This month’s featured crafter is another one of our very first at the shop, Lindsay Mays, of Silent Orchid Studio. We are particularly proud of this talented woman as she was re…
Thank you to the team at KitschVA for making me this month’s featured crafter! Check out their blog for the full interview.
Day 1: First episode? I think it was Manos.
Day 2: Joel or Mike? Why? I don’t want to choose! I like them both :)
Day 3: How did you get into the show? About 8 years ago I started dating Justin, who is a huge fan. He showed me a bunch of episodes and I loved it! FYI, we’re still together, getting married soon, and still watch the show almost every day :)
Day 4: Favorite episode? Space Mutiny is always at the top of my list, but I also love Overdrawn at the Memory Bank, Jack Frost, all of the Gamera movies, Girl in Gold Boots, Robot Holocaust, I Accuse My Parents…so many good episodes!
Day 5: How many episodes would you say you’ve seen? Most of them
Day 6: Least favorite episode? Why? I have a hard time watching the Colman Francis movies, especially Red Zone Cuba. It’s not only boring and badly made, but depressing and bleak.
Day 7: Do you own any merchandise? Most of the DVD sets, including the ones with the figures and tin boxes. Justin has a mug and shirt and the Episode Guide book.
Day 8: Cinematic Titanic or RiffTrax? Probably RiffTrax, just because they have so many movies and are still active. I also like that they do audio for current movies and DVDs of older ones. Also, shorts! I love me some shorts.
Day 9: Fave fan site? Um…I like the tumblr page…I don’t really go to many of the fan sites.
Day 10: Have a favorite season/station it was on? I like the middle and later seasons more than the first few.
Day 11: Have you gotten any friends into the show? No, but I’ve meet people and found out they are a fan and quickly made friends with them.
Day 12: Follow any of the Brains on Facebook/Twitter? Yeah, I think I follow all of them…
Day 13: Quick! Without cheating, list as many cast members as you can! Joel, Mike, Trace, Frank, Mary Joe, Kevin, Bill, J Elvis
Day 14: Any riffs that struck a chord with you? too many to choose from!
Day 15: Favorite quote? ugg, again, there are so many.
Day 16: Have you met any of the Brains? Sadly, no.
Day 17: Have you been to any live shows? No, but I’ve seen the simulcasts of the RiffTrax shows in theaters.
Day 18: Favorite SOL character? Gypsy!
Day 19: Favorite Mad? Dr. Forrester
Day 20: Least favorite character? Um…BoBo
Day 21: Last episode you watched? Robot vs The Aztec Mummy
Day 22: Manos: Bad or the Worst? Bad. The worst is either Red Zone Cuba or Creeping Terror
Day 23: One-word opinion on Joel? hippie
Day 24: One-word opinion on Mike? silly
Day 25: One-word opinion on J. Elvis’s Servo? ok
Day 26: One-word opinion on Kevin’s Servo? huge!
Day 27: One-word opinion on Trace’s Crow? great
Day 28: One-word opinion on Bill’s Crow? short-tempered
Day 29: Something you can’t look at without thinking of MST3K? springs
Day 30: Why do you love MST3K? It combines my love of crappy movies with my love of making fun of things. It always makes me laugh, even if I’ve had a bad day.

Yesterday my Illustrated Lady art doll came home. After an adventure in California to be photographed for Art Doll Quarterly magazine, she’s now up for sale in my Etsy shop. https://www.etsy.com/listing/179915579/illustrated-lady-tattooed-art-doll
(And the price is negotiable. I will entertain all reasonable offers.)
Another reason for honoring VincentPrice with a postage stamp: He introduced the great EdgarAllenPoe to a lot of people. Instead of being “required reading”, Poe came alive in Price’s Poe films and readings.
