Even after 15 years, with certain activities, it's easy to jump back into the saddle, whether it's riding a bike, or breast-feeding. Jumping back into the saddle of smartass, Mystery Science Theater 3000, with Cinematic Titanic.
Featuring the original MST3K cast, Titanic rolls into the Troc tomorrow night to provide intentionally hilarious commentary as an unintentionally hilarious feature film rolls on screen. The event's led by MST founder Joel Hodgson, and while the evening will lack the show's robots, the real-life people behind Tom Servo, Crow, et al, will chime in from behind a screen, where their blinding handsomeness can't interfere with the sarcasm. Friday's feature is 1978's The Alien Factor; starring the immortal Don Leifert (you know, "Drago", from Nightbeast), it tells the story of a spaceship hauling creatures from an intergalactic zoo crashing outside of Baltimore, where soon "town folk are turning up mutilated and dead, and even in polyester pants" -- so apparently, Rick Dees was once caged in an intergalactic zoo.
Besides the current live tour, CT's also intermittently recreating polished productions of the live show for DVD release. Recent gems include Frankenstein's Castle of Freaks, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, and The Wasp Woman -- who, given her prim and proper religiousness, totally won't let you hop back on that milk train.
