wait, since when does Godzilla have ears...

You will recall my ABSOLUTE fondness for Godzilla....I see that there might be a new Godzilla movie and I am unmoved.  I interested in the JUNKY SCI-FI Godzilla of my youth, the one I saw on the Saturday afternoon Creature Feature! And I am not really a dragon fan....but this book cover shows a favorite book of my childhood, I must say, that Wyeth really captivated me!

Anyway, the wife tells me "you make those monsters really big on your pieces" and it is true, and I endeavor to make a smaller one...but, well, they DO begin to take over....

Well, the question is, more like how did they get Raymond Burr back, or is he now a, what are they called? The most popular thing since werewolves...zombie?

You wonder how seriously the producers of Godzilla (back in the day) took themselves and the project. Maybe that's part of the humor if they took themselves too seriously and weren't quite able to pull off their ideas.

Godzilla has to be big on your pots... because he IS big!

Godzilla was big and trying to take over so it just seems right.

Oh, I like it!
My tribe is a fan of those goofy old Godzilla movies, we have tons of them--Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla, Godzilla vs. Gigan, Godzilla vs. Mothra, Destroy All Monsters.
They might drink tea if it came out of a Godzilla pot.

Wow.. I really like your cute little dragon chowing on the car. I think dragons wheather it be spawned from atom bombs or in swamps...they are greatly misunderstood.
