The Beast! The Beast! The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms!

Impossible? Unbelievable? Fantastic? But I tell you it could happen...it could happen...it could happen....

Ray Harryhausen again. Everyone have a memorable Memorial Day.

It's been too long since the last Monster Monday.

Somehow finding these clips here is more rewarding than going to Youtube and digging myself.

*cough cough* Cloverfield *cough cough*

Hey! That lighthouse scene is from a Ray Bradbury story!

P.S. Good seeing Hux and the Girlios today! At least SOMEone stops when going through town. ;-)

And Jack's mouth is feeling better now, but he couldn't talk for hours. :-(

*lmao* @ Nancy. I'm glad I wasn't the only one who made the connection. And that story is "The Fog," isn't it Nancy? The beastie being brought up to the surface by the horn? Gods I read that when I was a kid.

Clowncar, please please please keep the M. Mondays coming?

And it wasn't even Monday, Eric. My dark secret is I do a monster monday when I can't think of anything interesting to say (a common occurrence on a Monday).

You know, D'Ancy, Cloverfield musta referenced at least 10 old monster movies. I expected to be really disappointed by it, but ended up liking it a lot. Except for the first 10 minutes. You can safely fast forward through the thing until the monster rears its head, and then start watching. I'm glad everyone had a good time (except J, obviously) at your casa. Sorry to have missed it, but I had baseball to watch and overpriced beer to drink. It's a burden, really.

Hey Irr, I love that story too. Bradbury (The Fog and A Sound of Thunder specifically) was the first writer who I read and thought "that's good writing." Before reading him it was all just storytelling.

CC, I've still got a massive crush on the old boy. If there were a writer I strive to emulate it's Hisself.
