I knew they hired Geoff for a reason.

Hey, so tomorrow is Turkey Day, a long-held American tradition of excess and regret. Turkey Day, for me, will always represent one thing, though. It’s not family. It’s not food. It’s not even the systematic extermination of an indigenous people. No, it’s Mystery Science Theater 3000.

You probably don’t need me to tell you that MST3K is back in Kickstarter form, but on the off chance you didn’t know, well, now you know. I can’t even begin to put into words what Joel, Mike, the Bots, and the Mads meant to me growing up. It’s a strange thing to think that a puppet show about yelling at bad movies shaped who I am more than my DNA did. But then, life is pretty strange.

Anyway, I just wanted to wish you and yours a happy happy. The holidays are a stressful time, and if you find you just can’t eat or breathe or other science facts, maybe┬áconsider shutting yourself in a movie. A really, really bad movie. Or twelve.
