I will say that one afternoon with "Mr. B Natural" leaves an impression
deep enough to last decades long after she has left the room.

What is scary is that Buzz Turner (played by Bruce Podewell) is now 68
years old.
MST3K started 23 years ago and ended 12 years ago.
My how the time flies for us surviving fanbase.

Just a reminder, using WINAMP there are 2 SHOUTCAST TV channels playing
MST3K episodes non-stop.
http://www.winamp.com/
http://www.winamp.com/online-service/shoutcast-tv/10200

I will note that I was having problems with WINAMP screwing around with
my audio volume levels so I removed an audio plugin to fix that and WINAMP
wouldn't start properly on WINXP for me with a DLL problem (DLL in WINAMP
directory, not Windows). Fixing that just required finding the DLL that was
throwing up the WINAMP start error and deleting that DLL. After that, no
more problems.

Sadly the BAT CHANNEL was taken down and a bunch of other SHOUTCAST
channels I liked have gone offline too.
Oh well, you can also grab the video using the STREAMRIPPER plugin.

The nice thing is that it is like watching a poorer-quality broadcast
video channel with rather good audio.
Sometimes the SYNC'ing with video and audio is off though,
