Dear Mike,
I was recently watching MST3K- The Brain the wouldn't Die. In it you mention (during a ship segment) a 5K run from I believe Batavia to St. Charles. It was a fake funny story but it got me thinking. I lived in St. Charles near a Batavia. So I went on IMDB and saw you used to live in St. Charles Illinois, just like me. I lived there from 89 to 2004. I live in Bolingbrook Illinois now. I am dissapointed I never new this information, although good for you because I would of had visit you once because of my love of MST3K. Maybe you shopped at the Dominicks in St. Charles, I worked there many years and maybe I rang up your groceries.

The question is if you ever go back to St. Charles? Can you tell me about your time there? Also if you do visit once in a while, I have family there I visit once a week, would you like to come to dinner? I am a excellent cook.

Thank you very much,
Jon-Michael Spangler (Resident of the Timbers subdivision)

Hey MIke: 

Long time fan.  I was listening to the Clowns in the Sky CD set recently and was thinking how much fun it would be to actually play some of the songs from the show.  Do you think there would ever be a piano arrangement book put out for purchase of the songs featured from MST3K?

Alright, I was watching the Fifth Element rifftrax, with the rifftrax homepage upand so here I am, with mike's voice coming out of my speakers, and his photoshoped head starting at me out of the corner of my eye, dressed in a cheerleader uniform.

Mike, has your face photoshoped to something ever severely dampened the sales of the product being advertised?

Also, can I have a bobblehead of that?

Edited slightly

Dear Mike

So which of the riffers are MMA (aka cage fighting/UFC) fans? I think it was Kevin who referenced a semi obscure match between Martin Kampmann and Crafton Wallace on the Battlefield Earth rifftrack, so I would assume that he is, at least.

Follow up/alternate question: Who wins a no holds barred cage match between a prime Patrick Swayze and Chuck Liddell?

Dear Mike,

Since you've successfully conquered the media; (books, the net, public speaking)  when can we expect your fall line to come out? What will you call your label?  Or will you take the Trump route and do steaks?

Mike and whoever else may or may not be there, a lot of times in interviews and stuff when the interviewer asks what you're working on at the moment, you'll mention scripts, pilots, or other various projects of which you cannot discuss the details.  Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but why can't you discuss them?  Are there legal reasons?  Or do you not actually have any projects in the works and you're just making it up to make yourself sound cool?  (You don't have to answer the second part.)

Am I disqualified for already having asked a question?

WAIT WAIT!  That's not my question -- d'oh!

What's the problem with publishing RiffTrax as a pay-subscription on iTunes?

EDIT BY CONOR:  (didn't want to clutter the thread.)  We looked into this initially.  It didn't really fit into any of the place itunes, audiobooks, music, comedy.  It's sort of its own thing and itunes didn't want anything on there that required explanation.  We're working on integrating subscription models into RiffTrax.

Mike?  Kevin?  Bill?  Who is your favorite band/musician of all-time?  Dead or alive.

Dear Mike-
Transformers was this summer's most critically confused film. Some people hated it, some people thought it redeemed Michael Bay. Everyone, however, seems to agree that it should be riffed.
So I gotta ask: First, what did you think of the movie, and second, do you think you'll end up riffing it? I know you don't like to reveal future projects, so just wink once for yes, and twice for no.

Hey Mike,
Back in the day you riffed on old B-movies, now you are riffing on more modern, mainstream material. Which do you prefer to poke fun at? If you have a preference at all.

Hey Mike-
Once in awhile, a video game reference will sneak into your riffs.  Do you still play video games?  If so, which ones?

Hey Mike,

I know you've named some of your favourite films, but what actors or actresses do you like to watch?  Any favourite directors?
