it all comes down to this

You grow up watching trashy sci-fi and horror flicks on Saturday afternoon, junk food for the young soul! Lost in Space, the Blob, Godzilla!
The years go by and it all comes back and you spend a large part of 2012 making those monsters come real.....
I remember when I was 4 or 5 years old, seeing PINNOCHIO.  I wanted to be Gepetto, the guy who could make toys! Then, of course, there are the trashy 1950s movies I would watch...then it all comes together years later....
I have noticed that Rob Zombie and the Beastie Boys also have been motivated by the same ideas...
Anyway, these robot pots of mine just outta the kiln, so exciting, have an awesome Monday!

Do I need to send you a Barbie doll from our old toy stash? You could re-enact Forbidden Planet!

I love your robots!
I loved Forbidden Planet and the original The Day The Earth Stood Still. My favourite though was When Worlds Collide.
Great stuff.
