Mike J. Nelson, Bill Corbett, and Kevin Murphy – the RiffTrax crew – are gods among men. “Mystery Science Theater 3000” is entirely responsible for kick-starting my movie obsession as a youth. The Incredible Melting Man! “Atcha!” Eegah! “Stem-lo” Pod People “Trumpy, you can do stupid things!” As I know from growing up in the Twin Cities myself, the local impact of the show was unprecedented and is, somehow uniquely and indescribably Minnesotan.

I haven’t had the chance to listen to it yet (currently downloading), but if you’d like a head-start, all you have to do is purchase their commentary MP3 via the RiffTrax website and sync it up with your Birdemic DVD or Blu-ray purchased from your local video store (Best Buy and Amazon are known carriers), or snag it on Time Warner OnDemand. Enjoy!
