Baby-sitters Club Snark-fest!


I was watching Hobgoblins on MST3K and I swear every time I watch it, I can't help but seeing Daphne and Amy as Stacey and Mary Anne respectively. You can watch the whole thing here and tell me what you think. Sometimes I'm a little ashamed at how much I think about the BSC and draw connections with everyday things to it. I wish I was savvy enough to make some gifs from Hobgoblins and and add BSC quotes.

I've never considered this connection before, but as a big fan of that MST3K episode, I love the idea. Pretty sure I'm going to picture that every time I watch it now.

Do you think MA will similarly scum out and end up stripping at a seedy club one day, getting manhandled by the likes of Roadrash?

It's one of my fave episodes! The movie is just so insane and so 80s I can't help but love it. And I can totally see MA scumming out! First clear nail polish then a haircut then stripping at Club Scum!

Any time I see anything in-your-face 80s, I find myself singing, "It's the 80s / Do a lot of coke and / Vote for Ronald Reagan." And sometimes, just for the hell of it "Fish Picker," because you don't really need a reason to sing "Fish Picker."

Also, now I'm imagining Logan and Pete Black involved in full-contact mulching.

I sing the 'It's the 80s' song all the time! And 'Fish Picker'! And the 'Hobgoblins' song that Mike and the bots sing. Especially when the cats are acting up.

Yeah, so Kevin would be Logan and Nick would be Pete so I guess that would make Kyle of the red shorts Alan? It all fits! You know, every time I watch that movie I just find it so weird that Daran Norris (the emcee) went on to be a pretty good voice actor while everyone else ascended into B-movie heaven. Same when I watch Team America. I'm like 'Spottswoode was that weirdo?!'

Btw. I love your icons. 'Skeleton Dance' and 'One Got Fat' are awesome!

Haha, I seriously sing the Hobgoblins song (or should I say, siiiing the Hobgooooblings sooong) to my cat when he's hyper and running back and forth across the house.

It's kind of horrifying to think the PeeWee-looking emcee actually has a career. I Googled him and aaah! He looks normal now! Good for him.

And thank you!
