I’m in Austin, TX at Austin Books and Comics and I’m talking to Mary Jo Pehl, from MST3K and Cinematic Titanic, who wrote a book I just read called Employee of the Month and other Big Deals and it’s all awesome. She is my friend. We talk a LOT about what general dorks we are. I get a little TOO excited at the end. It’s pretty great. You’ll enjoy.
