Godzilla: Rulers of Earth Volume 1

It always surprises me how people are praising Marvel Studios’ strategy for the “Marvel Cinematic Universe” as if it’s something new. I guess they have forgotten how Toho did it decades ago with their daikaiju movies. I suppose one could make an argument for Universal doing it first, but since most of their stable of …

The Finger of Nephren-Ka

I’ve been working on this particular project for a while, which is a bit embarrassing. In theory this is a trivially easy prop- a mummified finger.

It’s Zombie Awareness Month…

but I’m going to talk about Godzilla-related stuff instead. Granted, I’ll be doing a sequel to last year’s Free Zombie Music article, but this month my heart only belongs to kaiju. Why discuss zombies when Legendary Pictures’ Godzilla is scheduled to come out this month? After all, I can always talk about zombies next year …
