Resurfaces? Well, okay, it never really went away. Today, however, I received another comment on this blog by someone impersonating Joel Hodgson, claiming once again that it’s okay to torrent Cinematic Titanic episodes. This is, of course, NOT TRUE. The really good part came in the middle of the comment:
What with gas prices soaring, food prices making you sick to your stomach, and job losses at an all time high, we thought it was only right to release ALL future releases of Cinematic Titanic FREE-OF-CHARGE.
“And then we will give you all free Ferraris and supermodels, before riding off to Bad Movie Heaven on our unicorns made of dreams!” Joel is a kind, smart man, but I’m pretty sure he has not yet acquired the ability to print money with his mind. Future releases of Cinematic Titanic depend on your buying them. We fund the project when we buy CT episodes. So keep buying. Stop torrenting.
His extremely long comment closes saying that, in order to support Cinematic Titanic, we should buy from the MST3K.com store. Now, there’s some crazy moonlogic for you. Is it possible that there are so-called MSTies who don’t support, even hate, Cinematic Titanic? Maddening, if unsurprising.
Sadly, this guy (who may well be the same person as the Jim Mallon impersonator) was smart and used Anonymouse to cover his tracks. Otherwise, I’d love to rat out his information and have Joel put his filthy, thieving ass in jail. But Joel’s probably too nice for that. I’m not, though. Let me at ’em.
