Nerded out today at work a few times thanks to my mst3k t shirt. This thing is a vacuum for awesome: one guy and me talked about the show for like ten minutes, discussing Joel and Mike and all that. Another dude said it was the best shirt I’ve worn yet, and then he did this awesome Gypsy voice when I didn’t expect it and it sounded JUST LIKE GYPSY it was amazing. And then some customer asked if I went to Starship Troopers last night, and then we had a nice talk about the upcoming Rifftrax Live of Night of the Living Dead, all the while his friend who clearly had no idea what we were talking about was laughing at us. Whatever, msties unite.
Had a conversation with a total stranger about mst3k on the subway today.
This shirt is the best ice breaker. MSTies flock to me.
It’s nights like this that I learned the lead actor in Starship Troopers’ real name is Casper Van Dien.
Yanno my mom had a saying - it’s just as easy to fall in love with a woman not possessed by the devil.
Important Information about “Cool as Ice”
After watching the Rifftrax of Cool as Ice, I became curious about just HOW MANY montages there were in this cinematic masterwork. So I analyzed the montages in the movie. Here they are, with time-stamps and length:
-opening montage: 00:00 – 4:53 (4:53)
-hanging out at the house: 11:13 – 12:44 (1:31)
-insane “Kat’s house” montage: 15:20-15:55 (:35)
-Vanilla performing at the Sugar Shack 29:07-31:47 (2:40)
-Kat can’t sleep mini montage 39:45-40:05 (:20)
-happy date montage 43:00 -49:19 (6:19)
-Ice is mad at Kat for dumping him and rides his bike. 58:32-1:00:17 (1:35)
-random things are happening while Ice goes riding with Tommy: 1:01:19-1:02:20 (1:01)
-Kat is sad/ Vanilla is sad montage: 1:06:00-1:08:06 (2:06)
-ending montage 1:19:51-1:23:32 (3:41)
That adds up to 1501 seconds (25 minutes). The entire movie is 1:23:30. (5010 seconds) (not including the credits).
So montage is 29.96% of the entire pre-credits movie.
