Re: MAD SCIENTIST magazine (reply)
It was touch and go as far as the future of MS goes for a little while there. I was having increasing difficulty making the time to work on it. (You can't stay up late working on a zine when you're already staying up late every night to...

Re: MAD SCIENTIST magazine (reply)
Thanks for the feedback everyone. It's tough gauging the contents from issue to issue, since it often feels like I'm working in a vacuum. Issues go out, but I don't often get much comment in return. (Which I understand; I'm just as...

Thanks for the orders! And I hope to see some of you at G-FEST this week.Rick: I understand the frustration when a mag has a regular article series that isn't you're cup of tea. Now that I hit that goal, I can say that I'll probably take...

Re: The most laughable kaiju, in your opinion (reply)
Not really into the "laughable" aspect, since a lot of the kaiju I think are worth posting are supposed to be weird and goofy. But here's one of my favorite goofy monsters, from the TV show ULTRA 7:It's DINOSAUR TANK!

Re: The most laughable kaiju, in your opinion (reply)
We're talking result, not intent here.Fair enough. I started out just pointing out the fact that the name was not originally intended to mean "Caesar" in the Roman leader sense. I always get a big grin when his ears pop up like a dog...

Re: The most laughable kaiju, in your opinion (reply)
King Caesar! Not only in looks, but the name! No relation to Sid, Adolph or Julius. The redundancy makes me chuckle as well- sort of like saying "Emperor Monarch"!Not much to do about the name. King Shisa (transliterated into "Caesar"...

Re: Giant Monster Varan (reply)
The Japanese version is so much better than the awful U.S. version. But it's still a pretty low-key affair. Not terribly exciting, and without much in the way of the exciting urban destruction that other Toho kaiju films of the same era...

Re: MAD SCIENTIST #23  (reply)
Yes, I am most definitely behind. Somehow, for almost 15 years, I managed to maintain a regular, semi-annual publication schedule.  Those days seem to have gone, with only one issue out last year. I am working on issue 31, and expect it...

I was really happy with that 8mm movie article. I'm bugging the author to write a follow-up! Thanks for the comments on the RODAN article. It was fun to write!

Not a chance of going through Diamond. I don't have anywhere near the print run they need, and while I've been on a regular schedule (until this issue, whoo boy, it was late!), that could always change with a moment's notice. Don't want...

Thanks! I hope you enjoy it! Hey Octopus! I'd love to do a King Kong vs. Godzilla article at some point. That's the first Godzilla movie I ever saw, and I was probably only ~4 years old. But I can still remember sitting enthralled while...

Thanks again for the nominations for Mad Scientist! I really hope Mark Maddox's Dracula cover gets a lot of votes, because I know he had wanted to do a "technicolor" Lugosi Dracula for more than 10 years! And thanks for nominating my...

Re: A History of Horror Film Fanzines in LITTLE SHOPPE OF HORRORS. Should we continue? (reply)
As someone who came into fandom after many of these zines had folded, only picking up a few back issues of JFFJ and Japanese Giants along the way, I've enjoyed the history articles a lot. Of course, as someone carrying the mutant "gotta...

Thanks for the kind review, taraco! I'll be honest with you, I haven't seen Dracula in quite a few years, and I remember finding it very slow and dull. My expectation was that this article would have an "if only" tone throughout, but...
