    … crud, now I just want to drop everything and go.

    Joel’s doing the same talk and movie at the Colonial Theatre (famous for the theatre scene in “The Blob”) in Phoenixville, PA on Dec. 22nd.  He’s been giving talks at our lovely non-profit theater since he presented his riff camp students there earlier this year.

    There’s only 26 days left in the Kickstarter project for Cinefamily Digital Projection and Theater Restoration, and they could really use some help, if anyone can spare a few bucks.

    Personally, I think they should put ‘fixing the roof’ at the top of the list, before they put a fancy new projector under the current, leaky roof. But that just shows how much these folks love their movies!

    So why would you illustrate this with an episode of MST3k from the Mike years?

    My head is filled with dissonance.

      No disrespect to Mike, but Joel had a Steven Wright-type bewilderment that knocked it out of ballpark for me.

         Agreed. And also a sleepy surrealist bent that went away as well. Like the time he reenacted Inherit the Wind with a cardboard cutout of Judge Wapner “playing Harry Morgan.”
