Mystery Science Theater fans:  Joel Hodgson is in Sioux Falls on Nov. 4.
Joel is the creator of the enduring cult hit “Mystery Science Theater 3000,” and also known as the father of movie riffing – making comments throughout a bad films like people who make fun of bad material do in their own living rooms. Except probably a lot more funny.
Cinema Falls presents MST3K creator Joel Hodgson on Sunday Nov. 4 for a one-man keynote presentation, “How to Have a Job Like Mine.” It will feature what Cinema Falls’ Julie Anderson Friesen calls a “secret screening” of an MST3K episode.

That rocks, too bad I won't be able to make it. My little boys love watching MST3K with me. And they love finding an old Sci-Fi moving on Netflix and we'll MST3K it ourselves. Great family fun! They also MST3K'd the last O/M debate with me.
