    I used to tape MST3K and Night Stand w/ Dick Dietrich because they were on past my bedtime. It was always such a joy to get to finally watch the tape.

    I was watching the livestream telethon last night until the end. :) What a great Kickstarter project they ran. Hell, Penn & Teller showed up in the middle of the telethon to add a 1-off reward to the Kickstarter. They broke the Film & TV category record on Kickstarter with $5.76M (previously held by Veronica Mars), plus another $625K worth of swag on their shop.

    I've never felt so engaged by a Kickstarter campaign before. It was superbly executed.

    You can still pick up swag here: http://mst3k.com/kickstarter/addons
