Kringla, Iowa, & horny gnomes; a video interview with Rebecca Hanson & Tim Ryder (MST3K)

Oh, wow, I have a blog, don’t I? It’s been a long time since I’ve posted something. I promise I’ll get better about that. Well, “promise” is a strong word. I’ll try to be post more than once every other year. Deal?

As you may know, I’m a fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000. I’ve interviewed a few people from the show over the years, been to Rifftrax, MST3K, Cinematic Titanic and The Mads live events, and the show may even be partially responsible for where I went to college (a story for another day). When Joel Hodgson announced in 2016 that Iowan Rebecca Hanson would be providing the voice of the robot GPC (then known as Gypsy), I was excited that my home state would have a connection to the show.

MST3K is currently running a Kickstarter to fund a 13th season, as well as “The Gizmoplex,” a streaming home for the show and other live events. The Kickstarter crossed its main goal of $2 million in the first 24 hours, and is now in it’s last 36 hours, with the real goal of hitting $5.5 million dollars, which will fund 12 episodes of the show and 12 comedy shorts. As I write this, it’s about $500,000 away from that goal, and the last 24 hours of Kickstarters are always crazy, so I have no doubt it will hit it.

But I wanted to do my part as a fan, so I did an interview for Cityview with Rebecca and her Drake grad husband, Tim Ryder, who plays Bonehead, and who voiced Tom Servo on two live tours. But I had way more than I could use for print, so I decided to revive my blog and post an edited version of the video interview here.

Enjoy, wont’ you, and please help Make More MST3K.
