Happy Blobfest Weekend!
Some of you are excited about Free Slurpee Day or the new Planet of the Apes movie.
But I’m excited to go to Phoenixville, PA — the town where THE BLOB (1958) was filmed.
Here’s a video I made for AMC back in 2008, my first Blobfest:
This year’s theme is Kaiju, and the organizers had a “Kaiju Haiku” contest. There was a different prize each week.
I was bummed that I didn’t win the King Kong pillowcases, but delighted to learn that my haiku won the grand prize: passes to Blobfest!
And my poem was turned into this 3-panel comic by Jason Deeble (of Monster Haiku)
Here’s the full schedule for this weekend’s Blobfest. (including appearances by Joel Hodgson and Ghoul a Go Go)
It’s worth the trip.
