Cinematic Titanic

We went and saw Cinematic Titanic with our friends Melinda, Jill, and Doug. In case you don't know Cinematic Titanic is the original cast of Mystery Science Theater 3000 riffing on bad movies just like the good old days but better. Instead of just Joel and the bots we now get Joel Hodgson, Mary Jo Pehl, Frank Conniff, Trace Beaulieu, and Josh (J. Elivs) Weinstein. Here's a sample:

The show was fantastic! We had great seats, too. We were 6 rows back on the left side of the stage so we were about 15 feet from Joel, Josh, and Mary Jo. The movie was terrible (Danger on Tiki Island), but they made it hilarious. We expected that. One thing we didn't expect was the warm up act. It was a man named Gruber.

He was hilarious and all of us kept thinking that he was very familiar, we just couldn't place him. He put on a great set and we were in stitches.

After the movie there was a meet and greet that Ami and I stayed for. We were at the very back of the line but only had to wait about an hour. Gruber was also talking to people while we were waiting so we went and talked to him and got our picture taken with him. He was super nice as was everyone else.

Ami also got pictures of me with everyone.

It was great. Josh also said that they were going to be doing the live shows again next year as far as he knew and were probably coming back to Atlanta. Well, we'll be there!

We went out to the car and the shit really hit the fan after such an amazing night. First we had to wait until someone came out to even get into the parking deck, then we couldn't find the car. After walking around and riding the elevator several times we found it.

After that, we were leaving and found out that you have to pay $5 to get out of the deck! We didn't have any cash either! The guard (over the little speaker) said that he couldn't let us out and that we'd have to wait for someone else to leave and sneak out behind them. We freaked out but luckily some one came along a couple of minutes later and we followed them out. Quite an adventure!
