Greetings, MSTie pals! Lesley here, hoping you are all well, and enjoying September’s annual pitched battle between summer and fall, the only month of the year when you can drink a pumpkin spice latte while wearing a bikini on a beach.
Our month-long MIGIZI fundraiser has passed its end date, and we currently stand at a staggering $42,250 raised to help MIGIZI rebuild. Your generosity is, as always, astounding! However, we are not calling the fundraiser over just yet, and we will be continuing to raise money for MIGIZI over the next several weeks.
But let’s move on to what you REALLY want to hear: more details on the creation of the two BRAND NEW shorts we promised! To refresh your memory, the new shorts will be “A Busy Day at the County Fair” and “Behind the Scenes at the Supermarket,” and they will feature Joel Hodgson, Bill Corbett and J. Elvis Weinstein reprising their original roles as Joel Robinson, Crow T. Robot and Tom Servo.
The work has begun and writing on the new shorts is currently in progress, with some of the best minds from the last two seasons and three live tours of MST3K happily donating their time to brew up some riffs for y’all to enjoy.
To thank you for your contributions and enthusiasm, here on MST3K.org we will be sharing a bit of the behind-the-scenes process of how these shorts are being made, so watch out for that over the coming weeks. We are aiming to premiere the new shorts sometime in October, ideally in a format that allows us to watch them livestreamed, together, in real time, as a big friendly group, if you’re into that kind of thing.
Thanks for your support! We’re just getting started.
