My project this weekend: I used a Letterboxd list to document every time I could find that the creators of Mystery Science Theater 3000 mention they *like* a film in MST3K media.
I thought this was interesting. Because of its structure, MST3K's is mostly negativity. What would be the MST3K crew's positive aesthetic of film?
List here, click "Read Notes" after it loads:
Additions welcome, this list is currently based on just 3 sources.
Finishing (?) my Zelda 2 romhack survey on stream now: https://twitch.tv/mcc111
…with "Winter Solstice", by most accounts the largest and best Zelda II romhack.
It puts Link in a hoodie.
Now streaming: A Zelda II romhack somehow starring Samus?! The creator warns that it is experimental, so if it turns out to be short I'm gonna switch to practicing Super Metroid speedrun glitches after that. https://twitch.tv/mcc111
Thinkin about that claymation dog… hope they’re okay wherever they are… https://twitter.com/cobcris/status/1274130947194195970
So we'll be both playing at once, both playing both games, treating both games like a giant Metroidvania where we're trying to find the items (which again, could be in either game) to unlock the doors to eventually beat both, but we don't know where anything is at the start.
This is going to be weird, and I am excited.
Hey y'all, tomorrow, Sunday, 2 PM ET / 11 AM PT, me and @zandra are going to be doing an interesting stream:
We are plugging together ALL these emulator hacks:
To play Super Metroid AND Zelda: Link to the Past, both games merged with portals between the two, items jumbled around between both games randomly to change the order things happen in, 2-player coop over the Internet (with item sharing).
Black lives matter

Spoilers: "The Prestige"
An interesting emergent detail of this chart is it happens to map cleanly to the traditional stalinist, fascist, left-anarchist and libertarian quadrants, if you assume "The Prestige" thematically favors the lower classes and the Nolan "Batman" movies are inherently authoritarian. I have created an illustration of this:
