Mystery Science Theater Lives On Even More

Mike Nelson has been keeping busy with his good friends Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett doing his Rifftrax thing, and putting out the series of Film Crew DVDs. Now, luckily for us it looks like Joel Hodgson is officially coming out of movie riffing retirement/hiding. Joel, along with non-Mike former MST3K members Trace Beaulieu, J. Elvis Weinstein, Mary Jo Pehl and Frank Conniff have joined forces to create Cinematic Titanic. The page only has the option to sign up for a newsletter at the moment, so I'm not quite sure what Cinematic Titanic is all about just yet. But we won't have to wait long to find out, according to CHUD their first film should be out in time for Christmas.

As I've stated numerous times before, I've always been a bigger Mike guy, but I'm very excited to see that Joel has finally resurfaced and he's bringing Clayton and TV's Frank along with him to make things even better. It's a good time to be a fan of professional movie heckling.

I await the day when the people at Cinematic Titanic start riffing over the Mike episodes of MST3K, mocking the MST3K riffs that don't work. It'd be a kind of post-modern pinnacle of self-reference.
