Let's talk about Godzilla for a moment. Godzilla premiered in 1954 as a bad monster who destroyed Tokyo and its surrounds, but sometime about 1964 with the release of Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster, Godzilla made the change from villain to hero. RM and I have discussed this change, and we both agree it was due to the change of the times - the monster monster movie had been done. We had seen the Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, where else can you go? Okay, one correction, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes did not come out until 1978, so lets replace that with, oh, this little lovely, The Horror of Party Beach. Also, the movies were gearing more towards children. In addition, by 1965, Godzilla had Kaiju competition in the form of Gamera (Gamera is really neat. Gamera is full of turtle meat. We all love you, Gamera! Credit MST3K) who was child friendly from day one. Godzilla stayed the hero until 1984, and the Return of Godzilla, where Godzilla returned to his city crunching ways. We see in the new iteration of Godzilla, that he is back to being the hero who ALSO happens to crush cities. I will miss San Francisco. The point of all this, is change happens (also I got to talk about Godzilla AND throw in an MST3K quote! How awesome is that!!!!).
That being said, we are going through some changes here at 52 Bad Stories and More, and that change is that I, The One With The Hump, will be taking over the blog posts. And, if you are unlucky enough, I may throw in a story here or there. Hey, the website IS called 52 BAD stories and More. I'm just sayin'.
Hopefully this will allow RM to focus on what he does best, which is writing stories. The number of stories per month maybe reduced as RM is now a very busy boy, but despite that I still nag him!
BTW, I am The One With the Hump, or as some call me....Chani???? Yes, yes I did steal from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Watch it, love it, memorize it! We will have a quote off! BTW, don't ask me about the hump or you will get a quote from Young Frankenstein, ("It's I - Gor"....no, not that one! "Hump? What Hump?"), but sadly I am no Marty Feldman.
