“I AM OFFICIALLY STOPPING MY BLOG”, he said, stupidly.
“For sure nobody cares and it’s way weirder that you’re talking about it,” everyone said, correctly but also kind of meanly.
I don’t know, how else do I open this? I’m stepping away from the blog, but I don’t want to leave it on a cliffhanger. I am okay. I’m not trying to be dramatic or anything weird. I’m just ready to move on.
Not from kaiju, of course. I’m still fucking obsessed. I’m currently watching Zyuranger, Mirrorman and Ultraman Trigger. Zyuranger is my favorite of the three, and I like it a fartload more than I ever liked Power Rangers. I know that’s spicy, but I could never get into PR’s Saved by the Bell-ish stories. And their re-contextualizations of the monsters were lame. There’s a micro review for ya! Zyuranger FUCKIN’ SHREDDDDS, MAN.
Hahaha okay, so yeah, I’m not moving on from kaiju, but I am moving on from writing reviews of kaiju media (beyond the occasional tweet). I don’t feel that burning drive to do it anymore, and there are a ton of folks out there covering it faster and more in-depth than I ever could (looking atchoo, Gormaru Island). It’s time to close up shop. I fell hilariously short of my preposterous goals, but I feel good about it anyway. It was fun, I made some friends, and I found even more big beautiful beasts to go batty for. OH HEY A NEW GODZILLA SHORT FILM CAME OUT TODAY
As an out-and-proud Final Wars Fanatic and a Hedorah-ing Hedonist, I am of course overwhelmed with joy. It’s a fun, silly little blast. I made sure to calmly and maturely let Toho know how I felt about the short:
So I’m stopping the blog, but I’ve got some unfinished writing I want to share. Just for fun, I guess. My notes for the Ultraman episode “My Home is Earth” are a scant few interesting nuggets I mined from IMDB and Wikipedia (and other ‘pedias), but they capture the harrowing, somber spirit of the episode. After that is my partial intro for a Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974) review. I’ve got one more post in me that will be coming soon–the first 75% of a Godzilla vs Kong review plus some closing thoughts. This stuff’s all incomplete–broken links, missing images, unfinished thoughts, placeholder text, all the blood n’ guts–but I’m a bit of a gorehound, so maybe you are too. No matter what, thanks for reading.
