Some Godzilla back story I know you will appreciate:

The Japanese Fishing Boat Whose Lethal Encounter With An Atomic Bomb Inspired Godzilla

Cool.

Funny thing is, I was reading about this very incident just a couple of weeks ago, albeit without the Godzilla connection. Interesting but tragic

Helpful hint.

When she gives you head, you are NOT supposed to keep it.

And now for another musical interlude...this time with dancing



I kind of miss The Gong Show, it had kind of an anarchic energy that was likely fueled by cocaine being a REALLY popular drug in the 70s but there is nothing like it today. I know they did a reboot, but it just isn't the same.

I have always thought that if I had a time machine, one of the things I would do would be to go watch the premieres of Dracula, and Frankenstein. It would be cool to be able to see how people reacted to those films in the times they were made

(THough, looking closer, I see that's the Hammer version, with Christopher Lee, not Lugosi. Fuck it though, I'd watch that too. Lee has always been my favorite Drac.)

Sir Christopher was a mature Dracula.

—J.D.
He came across as more threatening than Lugosi without chewing up the scenery. He could just project a feeling of threat with a glare. He was great.

When you really think about it, Dracula is just a story of a magical super villain who uses his powers to rape.

So . . . like . . . Your MoOoooo! Something shiny!

But yeah, that is sort of the modern as in post-1700's conception of western vampires. Prior to, you have a lot of fear of something disgusting killing you. There were shit tons of "vampire" legends which do not reconcile. With the rise of books, and of course movies, the legends have sort of come together to this sexy figure.





Or as I overheard a manager in a Real Bookstore instruct her new employee: "And the vampire porn goes over here."
