MonsterPalooza in Burbank, CA today. What a fun time. Me baby brother Rotgut and I went. Monsterpalooza is a gathering of Horror genre aficionados, make-up artists, Horror movie actors/writers and other scary movie special effects folk.
Last year me lovely wife Salma Gundy and meself went with our lovely friend Dastardly Debbie (or Double D) and had a great time. There were not too many people there, but it was interesting nonetheless. Now, while we are not big monster/horror fans, we do appreciate the genre enough to check it out. This year, wow, the place was packed. Whereas last year we just walked right in; this year the line was around the building. It was looking a lot like San Diego Comicon of horror.
There were many special effects/prosthetic makers from many films. It feels a lot like an industry sort of convention. People talking about the projects they are working on or will be. The cast from a new movie "Black Waters of Echo's Pond" was there and they all signed a poster for me. They all seemed very friendly. The movie may suck, but then again, don't all the good slasher type flicks?
The day was nice. Rotgut and I kicked around and just relaxed. Creepy as all getout as it was, it was a lot of fun.
