    It's probably some alien invasion scheme. A rock covered with a frozen space hardy virus etc. You know how it goes.

    was the second one a "satellite of love," perhaps?

    (hopefully, now my "location" will make sense to some!)
     
  9. Me neither... So I tried to research it a little on the net. It's supposedly been mislabled a "moon," and in reality, it's actually an asteroid. It's not a legit moon because supposedly it isn't bound to Earth gravitationally. But for some reason it orbits the Earth???

    Your "research" should've included the entire article in the link. It's right there.:rolleyes:

    Your location has always made sense to me.


    ...there was a guy named Joel, not too different from you or me. (La la la). He work at Gizmonic institute, just another face in a red jump suit. He did a good job cleaning up the place, but his bosses didn't like him so they shot him into space.

    We'll send him cheesy movies, the worst we can find. (La la la). He'll have to sit and watch them all as we monitor his mind. (La la la).

    Now keep in mind Joel can't control when the movies begin or end. Because he used those special parts, to make his robot friends.

    Robot roll call.

    Gypsy, Cambot, Tom Servo, Crow.
     
  13. All I know is that they found one of the Saturn V third-stages orbiting the moon. According to the calculations, it will eb up there for another 50 or so years, then impact somewhere on the far side.

    But it's cool that it's up there.

    Rock on

  14. Third? I've been missing out.

    whoa! never heard the original! i rediscovered mst3k on the scifi channel (channel surfing) where they only show the "mike nelson" episodes.

    that theme song goes like so:

    "in the not-to-distant future...(etc.)

    mike nelson and his robot palls
    were caught in an endless chase
    pursued by a woman whose name is pearl
    an evil gal who wants to rule the world
    (something...something) sets her sights above
    (something...something) satellite of love.

    'we'll send him cheesy movies (etc.)...'

    Now keep in mind that he can't control
    when the movies begin or end.
    he just tries to keep his sanity...
    with the help of his robot friends.

    robot roll call (etc.)

    if you want to know how they eat or breath or other science facts,
    just repeat to yourself 'this is just a show'
    you should really just relax.

    mystery science theater three thousand..."
     
  16. I think I saw that once. It's about a guy in space with nothing to do but watch movies with his robots and it always begins with their silhuettes (sp?) against a big screen, right? And they talk during the movie, endlessly. Kind of reminded me of when me and my friends rent videotapes.

    yep, that'd be mst3k.

    it's hilarious!

    the guy (kevin murphy) who did the voice for the bubble-gum robot, tom servo, has a book out now where he describes a year at the movies. he spent 365 days in different theaters. it's called "a year at the movies." sounds funny (and awfully familiar...)

    I do hope it's not part of some old rocket...

    You know what they say about those people who have a bunch of old car parts in their front yard.:rolleyes: ...
     
  19. I didn't know there were any other MSTies on this board.

    I wish they would bring it back. (sniff) but its dead now. :(
