Two thoughts after watching a Japanese Monster movie

First, I would've loved to have been one of the special effects guys on those old movies. Models and miniature sets, explosions and fire everywhere. Too much fun to be called work!

Secondly, every Japanese movie monster got pissed off at something humans did, whether it was intentional or not. The monster's reaction was to immediately begin to destroy everything in its path, and kept the tantrum going until he got his way or someone stronger came along and kicked his ass. I never realized that Godzilla was a muslim.

Best Commentary on Cheap Japanese Monster Movies Ever: the song "Cheepnis," by Frank Zappa, from their Roxy and Elsewhere live album.

...er, that should read "from *his* Roxy and Elsewhere live album." Carry on.
