Along the lines of last year’s advent animals, this year I’m rewriting Christmas tunes. One every other day or so until Christmas.
The other day I watched the Godzilla film from the other year. It was pretty terrible but it reminded me that I’ve never seen the original Godzilla. I’m going to watch it but first I thought I’d better check out a non-King Kong pre-Godzilla monster movie so I could compare.
The movie I chose was The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms from 1953 – the year before Godzilla – because it was the first monster movie with nuclear bombs in it and the first movie Ray Harryhausen provided all the animation for.
I’ve finally finished rewriting the ladybird book of the weather to make it good rather than bad. As before, click on the pictures below to biggen them.
I’ll make a printed version for my club members later in the year. I don’t think I should print any to sell directly as it’s definitely infringing on their copyright. Not that anybody is going to care. Anyway, to definitely guarantee a copy for yourself you should join The Moon Underground Club.
Cecy and I have just now relocated to Sheffield and have successfully transitioned from fen-edge to fell-edge people. We live on top of a hill now.
Before moving we put some films on the hard drive because we wouldn’t have the internet for some days. Yesterday we watched the old western High Noon, which was jolly good. Before that, over a period of three days, we watched the 1985 film Witness.
Witness is a romantic crime thriller starring Harrison Ford. His name in the film is John Book. During the film I had assumed that it was something like Buch but the end credits said it is Book. As in a book.
Harrison Ford plays a detective policeman but the story does not begin with him. It begins with some people on a farm who are living in the olden days who are actually Amish people living right now (1985).
