I Am Kevin Murphy of Rifftrax and MST3K. AMA!
I'm Kevin Murphy. I played Tom Servo for nine seasons of Mystery Science Theater 3000. I'm also author of the book "A Year at the Movies: One Man's Filmgoing Odyssey." presently I work with my fellow MST alums Mike Nelson and Bill Corbett on Rifftrax.com. We're doing a live riff of "Manos: The Hands of Fate" in theaters nationwide this Thursday, which you can check out here: http://rifftrax.com/live In the meantime, ASK ME ANYTHING, although maybe not about algebra. I suck at algebra. This is my first IAmA, and frankly I'm more wigged out about this than I am about doing Manos live. Oh and here's proof, over at my Twitter profile: https://twitter.com/kwmurphy
UPDATE 3PM CENTRAL - I'm still answering questions, but I'm slow, sorry - this is actually a blast! I'm going to keep going until 3:30 Central then take a break to get some work done. But then I'll be back round 5:00 to catch up, hopefully. Thanks All! - kwm
UPDATE 3:30 PM CENTRAL. Okay, this has been a hell of a lot of fun, and you've all made me feel very welcome to the Reddit world. I appreciate it. I'll check in again at about 5:30 for an hour or so. Thanks, Folks! -kwm
UPDATE 5:15 PM CENTRAL - Okay I'm diving back into this thread - I'm delighted at how many cool, new, unsual, thoughtful questions there have been. I'll answer as many as I can until about 7PM Central, then I really do have to finish packing for Nashville. -kwm
UPDATE: 7:05 CENTRAL - It's the Beer Frame Folks, I've cracked a Surly Furious and I'm going for another 30 minutes, until 7:35, so I'll try to answer all I can, then follow up over the next few days.
UPDATE 7:36 CENTRAL _ hate to say it, but I'm out of time - Thanks again to all who came and asked the sublime and the ridiculous. I'll try to follow up later in the week. Cheers! -kwm
