Ancient Evil

Another year older today. Happy Birthday to me. Unfortunately I'm ill with fever and cough, which just heightens the effect of creakier bones and general weakness.

Heads Will Roll

My kind of wheels, from JH Design. James tells me a Creature From The Black Lagoon board is next on the list. Amen.

Eyes On Monster Watch

Here's a nice antidote to the heavy (and hopefully fun!) dose of fantasy The Secret Saturdays injects into the realm of cryptozoology. Monster Watch promises to keep the public updated on monster news, "from microscopic space bacteria to giant woolly mammoths", but only working off of hard, scientific facts. If you ever doubted the world is filled with real monsters, click the link and be amazed. And while on the subject of 'real' monsters, the always awesome Pink Tentacle has posted a stunning piece on mummified demons! Click through and read for yourself... many photos are of obvious taxidermy 'gaffs', but what to make of this demon head (above) from Zengyōji temple? From the site, "Nobody knows where the demon head came from, nor how or why it ended up in storage. Legend has it that a resident priest discovered the mummy in a temple storage chamber in the early 18th century. Imagine his surprise." Oh, and did I mention it has a third face on the back of the head? Eeeek!

Secret Update

Blogging from LAX on the way home from 10 days of Secret Saturdays work. First, some good news... CN will finally start airing the rest of the first 26 episodes next month. A Saturdays marathon of the first 10 is set for April 5th, with the first new one premiering April 10th. From that point on, a new Saturdays episode will air every week until the big finale at #26. I really think the stories get bigger and better as we progress, so I'm hoping you'll dig what you see. And wait'll you get a peek at the new 10! Lots of surprises to come. It was great to see the cast and crew again. The actors were in fine form with the new material and easily slipped back into character (and into cracking everyone up with off-mic hilarity). We had a blast, as usual. On a related note, I don't think there's anything more flattering than finding out you've made a good first impression on a total stranger. Thanks Joel, and all the best in New Zealand!
