I know Manos: The Hands of Fate primarily from my love of Mystery Science Theater 3000. You will usually hear the phrase “worst movie ever made” attached to the title.
Now you can enjoy some MANOS adventures in a new video game, Nintendo style.
If anyone gets/plays this…please let me know how it is!
It’s too bad the words in the English language are so limited. I wish there were a thousand different ways I could express my Father’s Day sentiments, but I once again go back to the blurb on my first SheWalksSoftly Father’s Day post:
Today I’d like to like to honor my dad, who is truly one of the most amazing individuals I’ve ever known. This man has been a stellar role model of compassion, responsibility and integrity, who continues to inspire me on a daily basis. I owe so much of who I am, and anything I may achieve in the future, to his love and guidance.
It’s a rare person (and a rare parent) who can seamlessly blend rationality and emotion, regulation and freedom, wish and possibility. He selflessly provided so much, yet taught me to take nothing for granted. From him, I learned to hope for great things…yet never balk at working hard to get them. I learned that love is not only words, but the genuine desire to make someone’s world a better place, honoring their needs with equal (if not more) importance than one’s own.
Dad, not a day goes by that I don’t appreciate the hell out of you! May I go forward in this world with the values you have taught me and make you proud…
Now for a few goodies.
Hey dad, remember when you would take me to practice sports as a kid even though I was terrible at them and couldn’t wait until they weren’t mandatory anymore? Somehow you made it fun (which for me is the equivalent of enjoying a root canal). Thank you. (I chose this picture because I was probably just slightly less adept than a cat trying to play soccer…but close)
Happy Father’s Day to the dads out there!
What a brilliant marketing campaign! Simple, to the point, and bloody (pun intended) awesome. If you were lucky enough to see a select handful of B-movies and other cinematic treats in the 60′s, 70′s and 80′s, you may have gotten your very own vomit bag to commemorate the experience.
Did anyone actually go to a movie and get one of these back in the day?
Since readers of this blog often have great info to contribute, I would certainly appreciate anything you know about these. Have you seen collections of others?
I wish I had source links, but these are some choice cuts from my personal vintage vomit bag image collection. Not sure what that says about me that I’ve curated such a thing, but hey…you guys are still reading this right?
I am a card-carrying Mystery Science Theater 3000 geek (I must be, to have started a club). Here are a few of my favorite MST3K creations on Cafe Press.
And there were a number of items dedicated to one of my all time favorite characters: ZAP ROWSDOWER
And for the no-nonsense Rowsdower fans, we have the shirt, the sticker and the magnet.
My apologies to those who are unfamiliar with the show. I promise my next post will have more mass appeal (well, for my regular readers anyway).
The kit portrays Mike Nelson, the reluctant commander of the SOL for the last half of the series, tightly gripping the steering wheel and confidently looking ahead while his robot friends Crow T. Robot, Tom Servo, and Gypsy look on in total abject fear.
I wish the photos were larger. I can’t seem to enlarge them and maintain clarity.
Sculptors Tom Seiler and Jeff Yagher actually traveled to the studio in Minnesota so they could accurately construct this wonderful kit.
What a great discovery for a MST3K fiend like myself! Did anyone have this?
