Say "Goodbye" to all Ads on my Site!!!

July 5, 2011
Since Amazon has severed ties with all advertising affiliates in California, because they don't want to pay California sales tax, I've decided to pull all the ads here for all the affiliate programs that I entered.  All programs don't payout unless you make $100. I've entered four programs and I've made about $29 -that I can't get.  So screw them all!  You know that I directed traffic directly or indirectly and they got free advertising from me.  I'm done now!  I'm done with Google Ad Sense, Sideshow Collectibles and any affiliate program that claimed to give me cash for ads!  Nothing has made this site self-sustaining!  Time for a better business model!  More to come!

I put together four slideshows and posted them on Youtube and here in the "Monster Tube" section.  They are of pictures that I took while at Monsterpalooza 2011.  I added some creepy music and sound effects for extra enjoyment.  Check it out!

Monsterpalooza 2011

April 23, 2011

I went to Monsterpalooza and it was great!  I met John Skershock there and it was agreed that we would stick to the plan: He would write about the floor activities and I would write about the panels and events.  Looking at the conflicting event times I suggested that John take one while I took the other.  He couldn’t leave the booth that he was watching.  I sat through all the panels that I could in the three days.  There was one event that would cost an extra $15 –forget that!  It cost 8...

Monserpalooza Countdown...

April 8, 2011
I’m off to Monsterpalooza 2011!  I’ll be there at beautiful downtown Burbank to meet John Skerchock (of Scary Monsters Magazine fame).  We agreed to tag-team write about the event and present the article to Scary Monsters magazine for publication.  I wrote about Monsterpalaooza 2010 and John wrote about Monsterpalooza 2009, so John suggested that we combine efforts to properly capture the event on paper!  Updates to be posted all this weekend!

Monsterpalooza: 2011

March 22, 2011
I'm planning on going to Monsterpalooza in April!  I'll be writing another review and sending it off to "Scary Monsters" magazine again, with hopes that it will get published!  I will be taking more pictures and posting here.  It looks like a good line up of monster movie guest will be there!  There is one panel that I know that I won't go to. They want an extra $15 busks to see "The Hong Show" with actor James Hong.  Sorry, it cost 8 bucks to park, I'm not going to shell out much more!  They...

Scary Computer Crash!

January 24, 2011

Lost it!  I was updating my computer virus protection software and the next time I went to turn on my computer it wouldn’t start.  The anti-virus software killed my computer and I lost all of the computer models that I made for my website!  Aggh!  Just when I was making a whole city for giant monster attacks!  I have to start over!  Having lost all of my modeling files is worse than any virus that I ever encountered!
I posted my Munsters dolls on this site for show-and-tell!  I was also chec...

Classic Movie on TV

January 10, 2011

Okay, here’s what’s been happening monster wise: I saw “Tales from the Crypt” (1972) when it was on TV last month.  I hadn’t seen it since its theatrical release when I was only 10 years old.  I completely remember the first story that stared Joan Collins.  The second story was forgettable –I don’t remember that one at all.  Now the third story with Peter Cushing: I remember that one because when I was a ten-year-old that just ate a giant Krackle chocolate bar by himself, I barf...

New Books!

July 5, 2010

Okay, it’s been a while since I’ve updated this site.  Being employed seems to take up a lot of my time!  I’m now working in a call center –scary, huh?

    I acquired a couple of books and added them to my library: I just got “Famous Monster Movie Art of Basil Gogos” by Kerry Gammill & J. David Spurlock.  Very good stuff!  Since I don’t own a copy of “Famous Monsters of Filmland” (hard to believe) I can marvel over Gogos’ artwork without paying the price of a highly coll...

Monsterpalooza 2010

April 17, 2010

Okay, I went to the biggest monster convention on the west coast: Monsterpalooza!  April 9-11, in Burbank California.  Here’s the thing: I promised to do a write up for my blog, however, I wrote a big report and submitted it to Scary Monsters magazine.  Dennis Druktenis, the Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, is considering printing my article!  So, if I posted it all here, wouldn’t I be scooping the magazine that I want to be published in?

I can say that it was a very good show! I really en...
