And the Crow Goes To . . .
In this week's episode of MEG-A-RAE, our readers' advisory video blog (vlog), Programma Mama and Savvy get Oscar fever while talking about all the great books that were adapted as Academy Award-winning movies this year.
A Very Special Oscars Episode,
by Savvy & Programma Mama
Savvy and Programma Mama may not have won Oscars, but they certainly deserve Crows. That statuette is Crow T. Robot from Mystery Science Theater 3000, which created the art of movie riffing. If you haven't seen the TV series, you should buy bunches of DVDs from your favorite online vendor. There are show snippets available on YouTube, too, like so:

What's with the ever-changing hairstyles of this actor in the movie Werewolf? MST3K made bad movies hilarious to watch.
Thanks to MST3K and Best Brains, Inc. for making the Crow T. Robot figure that we used in this episode of MEG-A-RAE.
