Sneak Peek of the Week of January 29th 2012

29 Jan

January 29, 2012

I had to share that picture. A place in Seattle performed a puppet version of the MST3K classic Manos, the Hands of Fate. Doesn’t the Master look cute? I’m just sorry we can’t see Torgo’s humongous knees. The MST3K book claims he is some sort of goat-man but I have my doubts.

Meanwhile, what’s going on here this week?  Glad you asked.

Mr. Blog’s Tepid Ride is all about yours truly this week.

We’ll talk about my experiences during the filming of King Kong (The original Big Ape) on Monday. On Tuesday I’ll regale you with my dinner date at Buffalo Wild Wings and on Wednesday I’ll stay in the spotlight with a story from my experiences in the corporate world. Thursday features another OTR interview I did for the OTRr Buffet. On Friday I step aside and the Imponderable poses another wacky question and on Saturday the regular Saturday Comics feature unveils a new twist. All this, a woman named Saarah, and more, this week on Mr. Blog’s Tepid Ride.

    He is! He’s supposed to be a satyr, a goat man, but we never seen beneath his shins. His legs are supposed to look like they bend backward, with the knees facing back, but… um… they failed. According to MST Wiki: “The actor playing Torgo had braces for his knees to make him appear as a satyr. However, he wore these backward, and as a result, became addicted to painkillers.” If only he had these shoes:

    I’m stealing your Torgo puppet photo. That’s fucking amazing.

      Thanks Shannon. Can’t complain about you stealing the Torgo puppet, I stole it myself. Enjoy!

        Keep circulating the JPGs.

      …I just watched “Manos” the other day, and John Reynold’s prostheses actually look about accurate for the kind of digitigrade legs you see on satyrs.

        They are easily the best thing in that film.
