The snark is back! New version of MST3K is coming back to television!
It sounds too good to be true, but the Mystery Science Theater 3000 crew is coming back to television. It’s about time.
Zap2it is reporting that National Geographic is prepping three episodes from the guys of RiffTrax, which is the online snark track project the MST3K stars put together after the show was cancelled (for the last time) in 1999. The episodes will feature the ole’ gang: Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy (as Tom Servo) and Bill Corbett (as Crow T. Robot).
Dubbed Total Riff Off, the special will find the gang poking fun at National Geographic programming and footage of animals. A little outside their typical wheelhouse, admittedly, but it could be fun. The episodes are reportedly dubbed “Pig Love,” “Demon Bat,” and “Badass Dino Bird.” So, take from that what you will.
Though National Geographic is an admittedly strange landing spot for RiffTrax, the network has been branching out with its programming like most cable nets, and RiffTrax definitely brings some geek cachet. Here’s hoping we’re on the verge of a snarky renaissance.
The three episode special is set to debut on April 1. So, make a note to set your DVR accordingly.

A) HOORAY!

I can almost picture the tiny bands playing in my head! Awesome!

Happy 135th Birthday, Albert Einstein! (also, Pi Day!)

Theoretical physicist Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879, in Ulm Germany.  He entered the United States in June of 1935 and filed this declaration of intent to become a citizen in January of 1936. He would become a U.S. citizen in 1940.  

In 1939 he collaborated with fellow physicist Leo Szilard on a letter regarding advances in nuclear research to President Franklin Roosevelt, which would ultimately lead to the development of the Manhattan Project. During World War II, he also worked as a part-time Federal employee developing underwater weapons for the U.S. Navy. Some of his correspondence from this work is available in our online catalog.

In 1948 he appeared in this instructional film “Atomic Physics," explaining how the work of other scientists featured in the film illustrated his theory of equivalence of mass and energy.
