Above the CloudsOn my recent, short trip to Kentucky, I had to do a lot of flights in a short period. In Omaha and Chicago, it was dreary, cloudy and gray for much of the time.Above the Clouds3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Waiting for boarding and looking out on the tarmac, as many people around here do, I wondered when the cold and grey would finally give way to spring. We are expecting snow today, and more next week!
Anyway, my musing for today is about how though it was gray and cloudy on the ground, it is much different once above the clouds.
At first, there may be turbulence, and as you get higher and actually into the dark clouds you can't see a thing. Its all a fog, and often it is a bit scary as you bounce around at nature's mercy.
But then, you breach the clouds as a happy whale breaches the sea, and you see a whole new, wonderful world.
It is a sea below you of pretty cotton fluff. The sun illuminates the cotton candy fields and makes the shapes of the formations seem solid, like you

Blender UI proposal!PLEASE READ! It's very controversial!Blender UI proposal!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you who do know, I mentioned that Blender is free 3D modeling software that's up in the clouds with 3D Max, etc. It's awesome software but the major holdup is the interface is so dificult to learn and it's very overwhelming. For beginners like myself it's a nightmare.
I just happened to come across a YouTuber called Andrew Price, and he uploaded a video about making Blender's UI much more user-friendly, because it's very jarring. For those of you who are interested I HIGHLY recommend checking his video out:
In the video description there's also a survey to give your thoughts. You don't need to sign up or anything dodgy, it's fine.

Obscure Kaiju: MechaMothraSome sad news to share; special effects director for the Heisei Godzilla series, Koichi Kawakita, had passed away on December 5th, with his family only now releasing the news to the public.Obscure Kaiju: MechaMothra1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Despite being 72 years old, Mister Kawakita was very active of late, helping out with Godzilla related merchandise, books and side projects through his company Dream Planet Japan.
To honor the man, let us take a look at a lesser known unmade monster, straight from his own imagination - MechaMothra
During the making of 1992’s ”Godzilla vs Mothra: Battle for the Earth”, Koichi Kawakita originally wanted Mothra to be killed at the end. And have her be turned into a cyborg for the sequel.
According to to Heisei-Godzilla suit actor Kenpachiro Satsuma, MechaMothra would have looked more like a dragonfly, than that of Mothra’s usual self.

But hey, new Ultraman movie! Looks cool, right?
Looks like we were wrong...there IS a new Godzilla movie for 2012!
Not only Godzilla, but some sort of weird Godzilla-Gigan hybrid! And there's TWO of them!
And some sort of upgraded Megalon!
Though it's weird to see all of those Jet Jaguars...they don't really seem to be true to the original design...
Not entirely down with this white-and-black Baragon with the drill nose...looks kinda' odd, but it could be interesting.
Regardless, I'm excited!
It appears as though I've been had! That's no Godzilla! It's a Godzilla suit with a horn stuck on its head!
Technically still a "Godzilla 2012" movie...it WAS a Godzilla suit, after all

3 Years AgoIt was 3 years ago I lost my Dad. I go to see mom at least once a week now, usually on Wednesday, which is today.3 Years Ago1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I have had like 3 very realistic dreams of my Dad since his passing, in all of them he would not talk to me and glared disapprovingly at me. It is weird...makes me wonder if he really feels that way even now.
He and I did not get along well when I worked for him from the time I was like 11 until the year after I graduated High School, it seemed like he was always calling me stupid or something like that. But I see now it was mostly he was scared about providing for us, and he relied on me a lot to help him make money painting, roofing and fixing houses. He mellowed out more as he got more sick, and I did not feel like he was putting me down so much, but I never felt validated by him. He just wasn't the kind of guy to do that...
Anyway, a little tribute to him. I will try to validate him instead.
Dad, you did your best,

A Look Back At Gamera 2000A Look Back At Gamera 20001 year ago in Personal More Like This
Best you all double check me on this, but seems that originally the plan was to have a new Gamera film every year during the latter half of the 1990's - very much like how the then retiring Heisei-era Godzilla series had function.
But despite the initial success of 1995’s “Gamera: Guardian of the Universe”, the follow-up of “Gamera 2: Attack of Legion” (1996) didn't live up to box office expectations.
And thus it took a little while (almost two years) to get a third, and final entry into the now confirmed trilogy, “Gamera 3: The Revenge of Iris” (1999).
But in-between the gap, several spin-off projects came out to fill the void.
“Gamera 2000” was a scrolling action shooter made for the Sony PlayStation, released only in Japan on

Although ”King Kong” and ”Mighty Joe Young” are now considered classics, and he is constantly praised as the godfather of the craft, stop-motion originator Willis H. O’Brien did not have a decent time, during his latter years. And many imaginative, and fantastic film concepts he had in mind never saw completion as motion pictures.
Or fell into the hands of unscrupulous producers, who than gutted the property, until they were no longer anything like what O’Brien had originally envisioned (SEE John Beck, and Edward and William Nassour).
Even producers who had positive connections with Willis O'Brien, like Merian C. Cooper and Irwin Allen, weren't much help in getting his ideas off the ground. And the few films O’Brien did work on during this period, were low budget monster fair, such as ”The

Obscure Kaiju: Armored GyaosI must unfortunately admit (and especially this late in the year) that we're probably not getting a new Gamera movie for 2015. Even sadder when you consider this year being the big turtle's 50th Anniversary.Obscure Kaiju: Armored Gyaos8 months ago in Personal More Like This
But there's still a good chance that SOMETHING might be done with Gamera before year's end. Hopefully some sort of manga anthology, an animated short, or maybe even a television special.
But than again, I REALLY suck at being optimistic.
Ironically though, me and other Obscure Kaiju Historians, have been finding many obscure monsters from the truly obscure corners, of the relative obscure Gamera franchise. And in a nice way, it makes up for the lack of new Gamera films...Even if many of these obscurities are just more Gyaos Based Monsters!
In the 1997 video game "Gamera 2000" (released for the Sony Playstation), a mysterious race of cybernetic beings dubbed The Bio-Mecha invade the Earth. And to assist them, these 'living alien machines' create an army o
