MST3k Friday: We've Got Movie Sign!

In the not too distant future somewhere in 2016, the guy named Joel is planning to bring back Mystery Science Theater 3000. That is, if he can raise enough money on Kickstarter. Considering it raised $1 million in 24 hours, it has a pretty good shot of making the first goal of $2 million, which means there will be at least 3 new episodes.

If you enjoy the riffing fun of a sarcastic janitor and his robot friends, consider donating to #BringBackMST3K. You know I already did!

Song of the Week: Back in Time

Last Wednesday, October 21, 2105, was "Back to the Future Day". That was the date Marty McFly traveled to the future in Back to the Future II. The sad thing is, that movie now takes place entirely in the past.

This week's song is one of two from Huey Lewis and the News.

Song of the Week: Castaway

Earlier this year Blues Traveler released a new album called "Blow Up The Moon". I find the album a big appointment overall. True, it's supposed to be more of a collaboration album than a Blues Traveler album, but I don't like most of the collaborations. The first 3 or 4 songs are OK (just OK), but the rest aren't very good.

"Castaway" is probably the best song on the album (the title track isn't too bad, either), but that's not saying much.
