No Elves   Mstie Cons And Other Nonsense  
Gateway Con New Content Added 9/4/2010 - During the run of Mystery Science Theater 3000, Best Brains held two Conventio-cons as well as the 1992 Live Show. Cast members also regularly popped up at coventions across America, and they continue to to do so today. While I was not a fan in the early days, in 2000, I had the great fortune of attending Gateway Scifi Media Con in St. Louis, Missouri, which featured Mike, Kevin, Bill, and Mary Jo. The following year, my friend Joey attended Gateway 2001, with guests Trace Beaulieu and Frank Conniff, and Joey graciously agreed to cover the event. Fast forward a few years, and Mike Nelson appeared only a few hours from where I call home, at Guilford College, in North Carolina, at What-The-Hell?! Con 2005. Two accounts of that con are presented here, mine, and fellow mstie Dustin McNeill's. Moving on to 2008, and Joel starts touring the country with Cinematic Titanic. I was able to catch a live riffing in St. Louis of Santa Claus Conquers The Martians. Enjoy the con logs, pictures, transcripts, video clips, and magazine articles!
