Black Walnut Dispatch
mossy, fecund thoughts about gardening and nature
I did the Photoshopping myself…though I’m just sitting here waiting for the copyright police to show up….
LOL! I never thought I’d see MST3K and PAS together! Brilliant. (Having written that, I’m now waiting for the acronym police to show up!)
:o) I’ve been wanting to stick that silhouette in front of PAS for a long time, but only yesterday figured out how to do it on Photoshop. Victory!
LOVE IT! I do miss the MST3K guys making what is a bit dull totally fun! You gave me a good laugh!
Thanks, Laurin. Check out the link that James mentioned….apparently those guys are still at it!
Haha! I’m sure I’d enjoy this more if I was familiar with that particular gardening show, but I do love Mystery Science Theater 3000 and can only imagine what they would be saying about this guy pictured here. Well done!
Gordon, that is P. Allen Smith, host of a popular gardening show on HGTV. I actually really like him and used to watch his show all the time when I first started gardening. There is just a bit of a cheese factor about him that makes it easy to poke fun at his show.
I’ll have to keep an eye out for his show. I figured it must be cheesy based on your picture (which I did very much enjoy!).
Usually the only thing they show on HGTV on the west coast are a variety of real estate and construction shows, with Curb Appeal being the only thing close to a gardening show. I wish there was a bit more garden and less home on Home and Garden TV out here.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh my god… I just laughed so loud my neighbors probably think I’m crazy. Oh YES. I want to see that. Please, please, PLEASE tell my you are thinking about actually making a Black Walnut Dispatch 3000 video.
Glad you enjoyed the graphic, Joseph! Wouldn’t it be an excellent show? Wish I knew some TV producers….;o)
Don’t those MST3K people still basically do that in MP3 form over at rifftrax.com?
Great site! I watched one of the free clips and it was hilarious. Thanks for the tip!
Gotta spread the post-mst3k love 🙂
I have to admit that other shows try to be more like my garden, and not the other way around. For instance, I find that the annual war between Mediterranean geckos and orbweaver spiders in the greenhouse has a bit too much similarity to Nineties-era science fiction:
My goodness….what do you have going on in your greenhouse? Spiders? Geckos? That sounds terrifying!
Actually, it’s kinda fun, so long as you don’t mind having to fish out baby geckos from the inside of pitcher plants every now and then. You should see it when the armadillos decide to go poking around the front yard. (Between roadrunners, opossums, armadillos, and nutria, my neighborhood is starting to resemble prehistoric South America from about 20 million years ago.)
Only you could relate MST3K to PAS…and it’s perfect!
