Joel Hodgson Launches 'Bring Back Mystery Science Theater 3000' Kickstarter Campaign!

Mystery Science Theater 3000, which was also known by the abbreviation MST3K, is about to get a reboot thanks to a Kickstarter campaign that series creator Joel Hodgson just launched!

The cult favorite show started on a local Minnesota television station in 1988 and later aired on Comedy Central for six seasons until it was canceled in 1997. The Sci-Fi Channel then picked it up for another three seasons until it finally ended in 1999.

The show followed a man and his robots, who were trapped aboard the “Satellite of Love” and forced by mad scientists to watch some of the worst movies ever made.

If $2 million is raised, three episodes can be produced. For every extra $1.1 million raised, another three episodes can be produced. The goal is to raise $5.5 million for a total of twelve episodes.

Go to Kickstarter.com right now to pledge to the campaign and see the rewards!

Twitter Changing 'Favorites' to 'Likes' with a New Heart Icon

Twitter is changing the old-standard “favorite” star button to a “like” heart, the social media site announced today (November 3).

“We are changing our star icon for favorites to a heart and we’ll be calling them likes. We want to make Twitter easier and more rewarding to use, and we know that at times the star could be confusing, especially to newcomers. You might like a lot of things, but not everything can be your favorite,” the Twitter blog announced.

“The heart, in contrast, is a universal symbol that resonates across languages, cultures, and time zones. The heart is more expressive, enabling you to convey a range of emotions and easily connect with people. And in our tests, we found that people loved it,” the blog post continued. They also announced the news in a video, which you can watch below.

Fans did not seem too receptive to the idea, adding comments such as, “Can we talk about this for a second?,” “nooooooooooooooo this is awful,” “this absolutely reeks of panic FYI,” and “but not everything we “favorite” we “like”. Sometimes it’s just like bookmark-ing a tweet. Oh well, I’ll miss the star.”

WHAT IS YOUR OPINION on the heart vs. the star??

Facebook Is Getting a 'Dislike' Button!

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg made an exciting announcement today (September 15) — the social media site will finally be getting a dislike button!

“I think people have asked about the dislike button for many years. Today is a special day because today is the day I can say we’re working on it and shipping it,” the 31-year-old said in a question and answer session.

Last year, when asked about a dislike button, he answered, “Some people have asked for a dislike button because they want to say, ‘That thing isn’t good.’ And that’s not something that we think is good for the world. So we’re not going to build that.” We guess he changed his mind!

McDonald's Shades Burger King's Offer to Create the McWhopper

Fast food chain Burger King placed full page ads in both the New York Times and Chicago Tribune to ask McDonald’s if they could team up to create the McWhopper. The burger would be served to raise awareness for Peace Day, which falls on September 21.

Well, the C.E.O. of McDonald’s, Steve Easterbrook, responded on the company’s Facebook, and we detect a bit of shade! Not only did he say the two chains could team up in a more meaningful way, he also made a comment about the full page ads being a bit much!

“We love the intention but think our two brands could do something bigger to make a difference. We commit to raise awareness worldwide, perhaps you’ll join us in a meaningful global effort? And every day, let’s acknowledge that between us there is simply a friendly business competition and certainly not the unequaled circumstances of the real pain and suffering of war. We’ll be in touch,” the post read, concluding with, “P.S. A simple phone call will do next time.”
