Cinematic Titantic: An MST Battle Brewing?

Nora and I have been enjoying Rifftrax the past few months. For those of you not in the know, RIfftrax is the MST-like riffing on popular (and not so popular) films and shows by former MST3K frontmen, Mike Nelson (interviewed on this very podcast in 2006), Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett. They are high-larious to be sure.

But now it would seem that the creator of MST, Joel Hodgson, is out to start his own riffing venture with original MST frontmen (and women) at the helm called Cinematic Titantic. From the site:
"It’s going to be powered by the original cast of MST3K! Trace Beaulieu, J. Elvis Weinstein and yours truly, along with some friends who came along later to make the show great: the beloved Frank Conniff and the scathingly brilliant Mary Jo Pehl."
Should prove to be interesting. Perhaps Joel would be willing to come on the show and chat? Anyway, thanks to Neil for this find.
