Episode 240 - The Wandering Star Saga, part 1

Episode 240: The Wandering Star Saga, part 1

I like Krokojam for his subtle, nuanced chracterisation..

Having composed her wangst potry epic My boyfriend was a clone and now he’s dead, Dana Sterling finds herself abducted by a random space thingy and sent to another franchise. Once there, she’s abducted again by the utterly gooney and yet utterly awesome Krokojam! An evil and sinister alien with a voice that is both monotone and full of ham at the same time, this vile overlord has a plan for the floating naked space chick he just found. What is it, you might ask? Well, we don’t actually know because the fic decides to digress into hilarious practical jokes and their near-fatal consequences. Throw in some visiting Mary Sues who can’t quite figure how to take over the fic and gratuitous use of stock footage and blatant author favouritism and you have the first chunk of the Krokojam Saga!

The Episode 240 teaser

Since it's Comicon season, I felt it was fair to hand out a teaser trailer of sorts for the perpetually in-progress Episode 240 (Which, incidentally, is now on the final micro-chunk of riffing before we get to edit, cleanup, host segments and stuff). As such, I can reveal three things about it:
  1. It is a rebuild
  2. It has a different cast to the original version
  3. It reintroduces a character not seen so far in the "modern" Elmer Studios MSTings.
Feel free to speculate wildly and see you soon for Episode 240!

Episode 239 - Macross the Transformers Saga

Episode 239: Macross the Transformers Saga

Well enough hanging around and delivering plot points. Time to go back to killing space robots.

Imagine, if you will, the potential that might be in a Macross/Transformers crossover. Now imagine that said crossover simply consists of crossing out the word “Zentraedi” and writing “Decepticon” over it in crayon. That’s right, while they may be a different type of soldier warlord from deep space, the fic rigidly enforces pre-existing dialogue, scenes and characterization. Sure there might be some small changes like the odd horrific aviation accident or floating hat, but by the time the crossover starts, you’ll be wishing the fic was over! So instead focus on the intense rivalry between Roy Fokker and Axle and ask yourself the big question that comes from it: who is Axle and why do I care anyway?

July Update

As you can tell, there hasn't been much activity for the last few weeks. Unfortunately, ep 239 wound up blowing out and be a lot harder going then expected; as such, it's taking a lot of time to get done. The good news is that it is getting there; the last micro-Chunk is in editing now for compilation and then the final edit and host segments. ETA is later this week, fingers crossed.

On the good news update, Episode 240 is already in the early riffing stage with a good amount of material down so far. Material has been selected for Eps 241-246, with some riffs already in place. So once we get past this, new material should start coming fast.
