Monster of the Day #591

Sorry about the late entry, it’s my birthday and I’m lounging around today. Mostly I’m working on another Bruno Mattei review. Such is my ‘life.’

Anyway, Thanksgiving approaches. Turkey, anyone?

  • jzimbert

    Well, happy birthday to you!

  • GalaxyJane

    Happy Birthday!

  • Cullen Waters

    Happy birthday. And that’s Q! Good old Q! Killing poor George Zucco, too.

  • Ken_Begg

    Thanks, everyone!

    I thought of putting up a picture of the Grim Reaper as MotD, but I’ll wait until next year, when I turn 50.

  • MrTongoRad

    Have a great one, and say hi to the zombies from us!

  • sandra

    Er, Giant Dragonfly ?

  • Cullen Waters

    Nope. Flying serpent.

  • bgbear_rogerh

    Happy Birthday.

  • Curtis Fullom

    Happy Birthday from one of your silent readers, Ken!

  • Happy Birthday, Ken! That reminds me I need to get back to making VC pieces for you… of these days……..

    I first saw this film under magical circumstances. Having seen the pix in Famous Monsters back-issues, I really wanted to see it, needless to say. Back when Pop was playing with film as a hobby, one of the the features he ended up with for a time turned out to be THE FLYING SERPENT! Hot dog! We screened the film together, but I haven’t seen it since. I remember little more than seeing the opening text crawl.

  • Gamera977

    Yay, Happy B-day Ken!!!

    If I’d known I’d have sent you a birthday cake that Q the Flying Serpent would burst out of!

  • Happy Birthday, Mister Begg. And just what movie is this?

  • Happy birthday Ken! Which Mattei movie are you working on?

  • Flangepart

    Hark, I hear a George Zucco lurking about…

  • Chad R.

    Happy birthday!

  • Frank Bauroth

    I hope it’s been a great birthday, Ken!

  • Petoht

    It’s only 10pm! I’m not too late! Happy birthday, Ken!

  • Ken_Begg

    Thanks for the good wishes, everyone. A good, low-key day, which at my age is fine. Dinner was a double celebration, as Techmaster Paul had just gotten the day before a new job, just in the nick of time! So I was able to cadge my usual birthday steak from him and Holly.

    Also, got to Trader Joe’s this year before they sold out of their yearly Dark Chocolate Star cookies. They are insanely good, and you have like a two-day window to buy them before they sell out, literally. So I have a few extra boxes for B-Fest in January. It’s the small pleasures in life you learn to enjoy.

    Skrag, I’m currently working on Zombi 3, but hope to get another film in as well. Of course, I waited too long, and my schedule is busy before the end of the month, as I work this Saturday, etc. Certainly the one review will be up anyway.

  • Flangepart

    Your alliterave skill, goes in for the kill.

  • Gamera977

    You got a steak for your birthday Ken? Dang I had some stale Chinese food I had to buy myself… ;)

  • Cullen Waters

    I would have killed for stale Chinese food on my birthday.

    And yes. I’m feeling competitive this morning. ;-)

  • Ken_Begg

    We have a moderately priced (compared to Morton’s, Ruth’s Chris, etc.) but very decent steakhouse by my place called Jameson’s; we also do a group dinner there the Thursday night before B-Fest. I had a quite tasty rib eye.

  • The Rev.

    Sorry I’m late, but I hope you had a great birthday, Ken!

  • Marsden

    Happy belated Birthday, Ken!
    Steak, I’ve got to get me some of that next time for me. Ha!

  • I celebrated my recent birthday with taco pizza! Mmmm Mmmm MMMMM!!!! There’s a place down the road a piece makes some great taco pizza, but the price-tag makes them something of a special dish around here.

  • Happy Belated Birthday!

  • Rodford Smith

    Next year, let’s have some _The Giant Claw_! ;-)
