When I was very young I wanted to see GODZILLA VS THE SMOG MONSTER, so I asked my Dad if he would take me to see it and he said sure, we’ll go. But he didn’t take me and the movie went away and when I told him he said to keep watching the movie section of the paper and he’ll take me when it comes back around. But GODZILLA VS THE SMOG MONSTER never did come back. I checked. Every day.
Pouring over “the movie section,” examining all those amazing, tiny adds, sparked my imagination like nothing had before.
Here began a lifelong obsession.
