It's all about that Bass XD.

@  tigerhawk : (13 June 2021 - 02:16 AM)

Will altering the moons orbit in any way help.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (13 June 2021 - 01:51 AM)

Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

@  Telly : (13 June 2021 - 12:08 AM)

or feed him after midnight

@  wonko the sane? : (12 June 2021 - 09:00 PM)

Just don't drop him.

@  Kaon : (12 June 2021 - 08:03 PM)

man this chat is nothing but Bass X)

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 07:08 PM)

Carefull, he is a Bass Xo.

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 June 2021 - 05:53 PM)

Aw, it's not even a shiny.

@  Sabrblade : (12 June 2021 - 05:27 PM)

A wild Bass X0 has appeared!

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 05:20 PM)

I didn't even try this time.

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 03:43 AM)

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 June 2021 - 12:16 PM)

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2021 - 02:57 PM)

Bass XO has no known weaknesses.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Base XO is definitely unstoppable.

@  Donocropolis : (07 June 2021 - 04:30 PM)

@  Kaon : (05 June 2021 - 07:23 PM)

How is everyone

@  Kaon : (05 June 2021 - 06:42 PM)

test

@  tigerhawk : (24 May 2021 - 07:42 AM)

I'm making progress with tweezers. It's no great loss given Dai Atlas minor roles anyway, I really do prefer this mold for Titans Overlord and Sky Shadow,

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 09:57 PM)

Had that happen once. Drilled a 1 mmhole in the peg and superglued a rivet into it for something to pull on.

@  tigerhawk : (22 May 2021 - 09:44 PM)

pliers, superglue, heat, nothing has worked so far but I had to take yesterday off due to pfizer side effects.

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 07:04 AM)

is there enough plastic sticking out to yank it out with pliers?

@  tigerhawk : (21 May 2021 - 01:05 PM)

Oh great my Legends Dai Atlas fell and the gun snapped in two, the handle is stuck in the port on top of the vehicle mode.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:14 AM)

Also, our compound terms are legendary among foreigners, because we throw them together as a single word, with no spaces and usually without hyphens too.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:12 AM)

You can have straightforward sentences that are a literal word-replace translation of stuff like "I go to school", but once you throw in perfect tense and prepositions, you end up with insane constructions where the main verb is at the very end of a very long sentence, so you have to listen to the whole sentence until you have any clue what is going on.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

And I stand by that. German sentence structure can be utterly insane.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

Fun fact: When I was teaching German kids English, I kept telling them that English grammar and especially sentence structure is more logical than German.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

e.g. Lion-Eating Poet in the Stone Den was by a Chinese guy pointing out the weirdness in his own language, rather than the frustrations of somebody learning Chinese as their second. So English isn't the only case where native speakers might enocunter funky issues.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

Then I shall concede, and retire.

I'm okay with a new cast. Replacing Joel wasn't the end of the world.

 

No, but replacing the bots (well Crow) was pretty much when I stopped watching the first time.

So Mike and Trace are definitely out.

This isn't (if funded) going to be "classic" MST3K.

If you know that and still want to donate more power to you but I want more "classic" MST3K and this is not it.

I'm going to require disappointing preview footage in the future to even think about hatin' on MST3K coming back, whether it's the entire old cast or new people. Writing standards are a lot more important to me than the cast. If someone can't come back I can only assume it wasn't feasible for this project. I'll give this the benefit of the doubt.

Mike probably enjoys the system he already has set up for RiffTrax.

Is there a Rift between Joel and Mike and others?

 

I mean Joel and some of the others did Cinematic Titanic while the others were doing Rifftrax, but was it a THING, or just people doing different stuff?

 

Something neat in the launch video, Joel was rally doing a bunch of stuff like his xbox idea, playing with what a Video is and can be.

Source? Not that I don't believe you, but have either Mike or Trace said anything on Twitter? I'd think that if this gets off the ground, Mike, Kevin & Bill might be on board for writing, as well as offering web hosting stuff.

I mean, since this gets into their turf, it'd be better to be on board, rather than just have competition.

My understanding was they just had different ideas. Mike I believe was originally hired to do riff commentaries on DVDs for stuff like Plan Nine From Outer Space, with RiffTrax emerging out of that and bringing in the folks he'd work closely with. Joel wanted to go back to it too but had lost the rights to Jim Mallon who basically only saw the bots as the only marketable element. Hence Cinematic Titanic where the cast watch the movie on raised platforms.

Mike Nelson and Bill Corbett both said on Twitter that they're not involved.  Rifftrax put up a message on Facebook saying they're not involved, but they're happy to support.  I haven't seen anything from Kevin Murphy specifically.  I don't think any of that necessarily means they refuse to participate if asked.

 

It occurs to me that it would be fun if Joel, driven mad by his years of isolation, is now the guy sending bad movies to a new person on the Satellite of Love.

Pretty sure there's no bad blood between Mike and Joel.  Like none.  It's just Joel wants to bring back his baby in some fashion and wants to do Kickstarter after how successful other Kickstarters are.

Joel put up a lengthy but satisfying FAQ:  http://bit.ly/mst3k-update2  (I can't verify that link because bit.ly is blocked at work.)
