What up, friends? I know it’s been a little quiet around here, and I assure you all that I have not been idle, nor have I forgotten your magnificentstories — I’m still working out how best to share and showcase them!
In the meantime, I have a bit of fun news: TONIGHT you can catch the premiere of season eight episode “THE UNDEAD” on the MST3K Twitch channel for the very first time! Festivities kick off at 6pm PT/9pm ET. If you’re not familiar with this one, it features a dubious hypnotist who somehow forces a woman to time travel into her past to discover her prior life as a witch, or maybe not a witch, and, well, it really goes off the rails and stops making any logical sense, but the presence of such luminary voices as the iconic Digger Smolkin make it all worthwhile. It also stars the lovely bombshell Allison Hayes, whom keen-eyed observers will recognize from a few other MST3K episodes, including Grace Thomas in “The Unearthly” and the deliciously mean Erica Page in “Gunslinger.” Anyway, we hope you’ll STAAAAAAY!! around and watch with us tonight.
Pandemic got you down? Is the pain of social distance overwhelming you? Over on the MST3K channel on Twitch we have a balm for your sad soul — this Monday, February 8th, join us and a bunch of other MSTies who might eventually become your friends for a special Twitch community night! We’ll be watching Space Mutiny and premiering some NEW interviews with the MST3K Live cast, featuring questions posed by you, the viewers! (You can get a little taste of what we’re talking about here.)
Things kick off at 8pm ET/5pm PT, and the event will repeat afterward to make sure our west coast pals can see the whole thing. No doomscrolling, no existential despair, just the sweet dulcet tones of Bolt Vanderhuge screaming. See you then!
Hey MSTie crew! I hope you all had restful holidays, and that 2021 is treating every single one of you with the tenderness you deserve!
We’ve got something new and exciting for you today — we’re unveiling a series of cast interviews between Alternaversal’s own delightful Matt McGinnis and the MST3K Live cast of Emily Marsh (Emily), Yvonne Freese (Mega-Synthia/GPC), Nate Begle (Crow), and Conor McGiffin (Tom Servo). We’ll be running a series of these interview segments on our MST3K channel over on Twitch. Want to know more about our MST3K cast members?

We’re sharing this first look here with you today, and we hope you enjoy it. If you do, you can catch the rest of the interviews exclusively on Twitch very soon. And as always, let us know what you think in comments below.
