Where the F is my ham?!?

"Where the F is my ham!  I'm hungry!!!"

“Where the F is my ham! I’m hungry!!!”

"You little turd!  Where's my ham!"

“You little turd! Where’s my ham!”

"Did you turds give my ham to this puny Indian?  A-holes!!!"

“Did you turds give my ham to this puny Indian? A-holes!!!”

"Finally my tasty, tasty ham.  I can feel the juices dripping down my sabre-like teeth."

“Finally my tasty, tasty ham. I can feel the juices dripping down my sabre-like teeth.”

 

Maybe I was born 10 years too late.

Sometime I feel like I’m still in my 20s but then I look at my drivers license and realize I’m wrong.  Then I go looking through my books and I think: “Man, I feel like I should be older with the things I like.”  I miss when the oldies station didn’t have 70’s weekends and when the local TV broadcasts had sci-fi and monster movies on every weekend afternoon.  Eh, I’m a weirdo.

One of my favorite books to read when I went to my grandparents house was this:

An interesting hodge-podge of many things pseudo-science and of course the big thing for me: cryptozoology. Continue reading

Me heart Dinosaurs.

Growing up I was like many a young lad and obsessed with Dinosaurs.  Luckily for me my parents were fine with my crazed love of prehistoric beasts and often took me to various Dinosaur parks and museums.  Thus plenty of photos of giant Dinosaur statues.  Some I even stood near!

Dinosaur!

Back in the mid ’80s a TV special came out hosted by Christopher Reeve.  It was about something that hold a close place to my heart:  dinosaurs.  And it was called…

This show of course ended up on a VHS tape and was watched over and over again by yours truly.  The special effects were stop-motion animation and were very well done and it included scenes from several movies including the original King Kong.  So we’ve got dinosaurs, the Man of Steel and Kong all in a one hour TV special.  No wonder it has it’s own Wikipedia page.

Now, the one thing that annoyed me was the way Reeve pronounced some of the dinosaurs’ names.  Even as a little kid when I first had seen this I thought: “Is he saying that right?  Am I the one that’s wrong?  This is Superman on TV telling me telling me it’s DIE-no-NIK-us instead of DIE-no-NIKE-us.”

(I think I just wrote down two new anime shows.)

Well, since watched Dinosaur! again last night I had the same reaction and did the same thing I did about 28 years ago.  I took this off my bookshelf

Mine looks alot more beat up and has a Haley's Comet scratch-n-sniff sticker on the third page.

And I looked up the pronunciation of Deinonychus.  And then I took another battered book out and did the same thing.  And another.  And another.

So screw you Christopher Reeve,  you’re saying it wrong.

And don’t get me started on the show using the name brontosaurus then referring to the fact that a museum had put the wrong skull on a skeleton and there never were brontosauruseseseseses…

Yeah.

So anyhow if you have a spare hour and you want to catch a glimpse and pure 1980s dinosaur knowledge here’s the whole thing.  Thank you Youtube for helping me not have to rewind my VHS tapes!

 

I love me some Devil Dinosaur.

Apparently there’s some comic called The Avenging Spiderman and the 15th issue features this:

As the world knows and understands I love Devil Dinosaur.  And here’s another awesome comic idea!

And yes, I even love him in that cheesy cartoon…

The People That Time Forgot.

Guess what was on Cinemax for the last hour of work this morning…

Yes, The People That Time Forgot, and I was able to finish watching it when I got home…

Or read it, if need be…

Edgar Rice Burroughs has a special place in my heart, or maybe it’s the dinosaurs in his stories…  Well and aliens on Venus and Mars…  and I liked John Carter…  and…
