30 Days, 30 Monsters | day twenty
Some would say that Gamera is the K-Mart Godzilla. I would say fuck you.
Gamera, star of Daiei’s kaiju staple, is a giant turtle who spits fire and flies. Awesome. He’s a prehistoric monster who got by with eating jet fuel, which might explain why he shoots fire from his mouth. He is the last of his kind, as it goes with most kaiju, and is typically not a bad guy. One of Gamera’s monikers is “Friend of All Children.” What a sweet turtle. He was invented as a rival to the popularity of Godzilla and enjoyed great success in his own right.
Gamera came to my notice as a young child by way of Mystery Science Theater 3000, which lovingly lampooned a great number of films featuring the big guy.
The intro cards for Futurama have always been one of my favorite parts of the show because people always talk about the old Simpson’s couch gag but this is just pure gold… I mean-
It goes from everything from
and then they made fun of how much everyone reacted to the the infamous ‘dead dog episode’ that I cried about…
And then one time when the show got canceled…
and then when it came back..
you’re missing my favorite one though
I went to a Chinese veggie/ vegan restaurant this past weekend. The head chef (and owner) came out to talk at the table and he eventually brought up something that went a little like this: “I started eating vegan for health reasons. But when I did, all of my friends that I had before are all gone now.” That fucking says a lot doesn’t it? That just because he changed his life style, he was immediately ostracized by everyone he knew. Chef Kenny then added: “But it’s okay now because I am living a very happy life. Every day I get to cook wonderful food, I have wonderful customers come in to my restaurant who have never given me or anyone else a hard time, and I get to see everyone enjoy my cooking.”
