I paid the five bucks and secured us a permanent (for a year anyway) room to watch MST3K and other things in. It's at:

Today's (Thursday's) show, I'm thinking 7 and 9 PM ET. That way, West Coast viewers can join us at a reasonable after-work hour. How does that sound?

Sounds great to me, and nice going getting a room. Wait, that sounds kinda funny. You know what I mean.

Sleezy filthy beer-soaked drug parties are this movie's rock climbing, but once it stops the movie gets much harder to stay awake through.

At least monster a go-go had something to say, artistically.

Yeah, I nodded off at the end there - this is one of those movies that is so bad that it can't even be saved by the MST3K treatment. It's plodding and incoherent, but missing that elusive element that can push a bad movie past "just plain unwatchable" into "sublimely terrible art" territory.
