my own junky sci-fi world....




In theory, the kind of nerdy people I would enjoy hanging around are into fantasy and sci-fi. I guess we would hang out and I would eat the salsa and corn chips and try to bring the conversation around to planet earth....
I was reading GAME OF THRONES for awhile but got bored and went back to mysteries (mysteries being my FAVORITE type of book...give me some blood, missing jewels and a detective with dark secrets!).

And you know, I don't think I have seen a sci-fi movie in about 30+ years, since I was 13....I thought ET was DUMB, I only saw part of STAR WARS when it came on TV (because Carrie Fisher was HOT) and Star Trek?  What is THAT? 
Ditto horror movies...I love Hitchcock's, but those are really just suspense....


But when I was around 6 I would watch GODZILLA or DRACULA on the Saturday Creature Feature sometimes, and it is with fond memories of those classics I create my own junky 50s characters on pots...these here being more possibilities for the cup competitions I am aiming for this summer....

I'm so sorry you didn't enjoy Star Trek and Star Wars...a couple of my fav sci-fi's - especially with lots of really strange creatures to love and hate. But your Lost in Space men and godzillas are cute cute cute.
