      my keychain broke like a week and a half after getting it, if not earlier

      Just got the moon shaped mst3k mug, this must be the least practical coffee mug I have even owned, it's pretty ugly and honestly isn't very good as a coffee mug. Holding it and drinking from it is awkward (because of its shape) , but it can hold a lot of coffee.

      This thing could have come from an invention exchange, it's so absurd and I love it. It encapsulate the spirit of mst3k so well and I'm glad I've spent way too much money for this junk of a mug.

      Eric "NotTheRealJoel" Kiss 4 days ago

      Woah! I just rewatched "The Beast of Hollow Mountain," and now there are a ton of names between "Eric Kiss" (a totally awesome backer) and "Erik Kiss" (probably just as cool, since we have something awesome in common ;-) ), whereas there were zero before. Remedies for those with missing names are definitely underway.

      @Jon: the code to download should be in your Backerkit.

      Mug makes a good pencil cup for the desk. I'd never be able to drink out of a globe, handle or not. I like it better as a memento.

      Pretty disappointed with the 'coffee' mug. No handle + hot coffee = hot hands! It's also not microwave or dishwasher safe, so I think I'll be using this as a shelf tchotchke, but I love the design!

      How in the hell do I download season 11? I've followed the instructions, I have no code, I have no ability to get the code. Could this be more convoluted?

      Disregard my previous comment. I found it. Had the PDF file saved on my laptop. As you were.

      I just realized, I never printed my reward certificate. At the time it was issued, I had no ink for my printer and now, with other rewards arriving, it just occurred to me that I never took care of this. Can anyone post a link to where I can find it? Thank you!

      @philip - the link on the tour page here: goes to this page here: which does not have an option to buy, only a thing saying "Tickets Pre Sale Soon May 18" and hasn't since I started looking at it before 10 AM yesterday. Could you perhaps post the link of the page you used to buy?

    12. Philip Stephens on May 17

      @Matthew: I'm not sure what kind of problem you were having, but I was able to purchase tickets for both shows at the Warfield at 10am PDT, as promised. This was via the links on There was a clear link for Kickstarter backers for both shows on the ASX website for that venue.

      Does anyone know what the difference in packages? I got the one that says Mystie Mania.

    14. William Magann on May 16

      I see now, those seats are reserved for VIP packages.

    15. Skeletortilla on May 16

      Ah. Hit post when trying to correct. Let's try again.

      Looking forward to it.

    17. William Magann on May 16

      I went to buy tickets for the NYC shows as soon as they were available and they didn't seem to be the best seats in the house, not by a long shot. Was that typical, or did all the floor seats and those in the center section of the mezzanine sell out in a very few minutes? Will the better seats be available later? Anyone have the scoop?

      Got my tickets in Vancouver, but thanks to the lack of a precise seating chart on the ticketmaster site, we're right up against the wall on the left side. Ah well. The riffs will be just as funny regardless!

      San Diego tickets are up now for 7/22 at the $46 tier - I got row F. I also got row F for Eegah here in Milwaukee, which is an odd coincidence.

      Jason Gott on May 16

      @Drew - they either sold out in less than a minute or never went on sale at the $46 level in the first place.

      To my fellow Seattle backers trying to secure tickets for Eegah. It looks like someone mis-keyed the password on the other end. The password from the email works if you DO NOT type the last letter. It worked for me and there are still seats left as of a minute or two ago.

      Did San Diego sell out already??? I'm not even allowed to view the page.. HELP!

      Please check the San Francisco venue for the live shows: The Warfield - their ticket site doesn't have tickets available for preorder - it appears their preorder period will open May 18th?

    30. Tim Cox on May 16

      Any idea how much time is between each show?

    31. Joe Lawler on May 16

      I managed to get tickets to both Minneapolis shows. Make sure you select "Promotions and special offers" under presale ticket types, then it will prompt you to enter your code.

    32. Megan Black on May 16

      Checking for St. Louis – it's 10:10am here – but still not showing tickets available for sale. Any ideas?

    33. Dillon Laurino on May 16

      @Chris Pyhtila Usually with presale they only have some of the tickets for sale and save the rest for general admission. You could probably still get a ticket if you're there when general admission goes live.

      Hmm never mind, I was able to buy 2 for DC at 9pm, maybe it was a glitch?

      Chris Pyhtila on May 16

      DC "normal" tickets (under $99) sold out in less than 15 minutes for both shows. Glad to see that demand is high for the tour, but oh well.

      There are no kickstarter presale tickets available 7/9 washington, DC 9pm show, is this correct?

      Just finished the last episode of the first season. I was unsure at first, but by episode 3 or 4 my brain adjusted and I had a blast. Now I'm looking forward to re-watching the early episodes. A lot have said "thanks" for keeping it "family friendly". Well I watch the original series in college with my friends every night a midnight so I say "thanks" for keeping night weird-head-space friendly as well ;-) P.S. just a suggestion (you've done so much), but any chance of a presale code for the live shows for kickstarter backers?

    40. Slappy Sims on May 16

      cool . my shows on the top of the list .. sweet .. see you July 6th.

      Fun fact for those who may not know: this summer's tour won't be the first MST3K live show. Back in 1992, Joel and the bots, along with Dr. Forrestor, Frank, and Mike as Jack Perkins did a one night only show in Minneapolis called "MST3K Alive!", wherein they riffed the sci-fi doomsday movie World Without End live in a theater packed full of MSTies. And in 1994, as part of the first MST3K Conventio-Con, they performed a live riff of a little movie you may have heard of called This Island Earth. In the audience that night were executives from Universal, and the audience's riotous reaction to the riff was key in convincing them to greenlight MST3K: The Movie!

      I have always been sad that I missed these events (I was -1 year old during the first one, and 1 year old during the second one), so being able to finally see the MST3K crew do their thing live and "in universe" is incredibly special to me.

      Did anyone out there in Kickstarter land go to either of those shows back in the day?

    42. Joe Lawler on May 15

      @Kimberly: 10 am in whatever time zone the theater is in.

    43. Daniel DiManna on May 15

      I'm so insanely pumped for this live show! As anyone else who has attended a live Rifftrax or Cinematic Titanic show will surely attest, something magical happens during live riffing event. There's a feel in the air that can't be described; it's just magical. I feel it at every Rifftrax show I see at my local theater, but nothing compares to seeing a show live and in person. I was lucky to catch two Cinematic Titanic shows (for a total of three riffings!) during their tour, and, of course, got to see Reptilicus live in Chicago in February. The energy of the crowd, the feeling of community, the sheer palpable joy in the theater... it's just darn fun.

      It's a feeling every MSTie should experience. I hope as many of you as possible can make it to one of these shows!

      I got my "mug", key chain, and stickers on Friday! Super happy with all of them, although, I doubt I'll use the coffee mug for its intended function. Gotta say, this has been one of the most rewarding projects I've backed! If you need us for season 12 Joel, you just let us know!

    46. Mario Villanueva on May 15

      Cool info about the upcoming Watch Out for Snakes Tour but no stop in Houston? I mean, it's only the third largest metropolitan city in the U.S.!

      I'm kidding! I'm kidding!

      Or am I?

    47. Joe Lawler on May 15

      @Ken, not yet. They're in the last batch of stuff going out later in the summer/fall.
