Overnight Open Thread - Monster Island Edition

It be Friday. You know what to do.

So how about a little Godzilla to start the weekend

Along with Blue Oyster Cult's ode to the monster himself as the soundtrack. There's nothing like watching a guy in a rubber suit beating up other guys in monster suits. The funny thing about most Godzilla movies is that the parts with the fire-breathing atomic dinosaur himself are basically silent movies with explosions and monster sounds thrown in.

Oh and a little Godzilla trivia...in Japan he's known as Gojira which comes from the words 'gorira' (gorilla) and 'kujira' (whale). It's believed that the english version of his name came from a translation error.

Another true fact: the first concert I ever went to was a BOC concert. I was in middle school and no, I don't know what my parents were thinking. It was one of their few failures to say 'No' to one of my crazy-over-the-top-but-what-the-hell requests.


Thought of the day: I'm guessing the volcano eruption in Iceland which has shut down most of Northern Europe's air travel is probably putting out as much CO2 as all of Europe does in a few years. Yet if we humans don't cut back our carbon output by 15% the Earth is doomed, doomed, doomed.

An early Orwellian Obama Ad
I had totally forgotten about this commercial until Dan pulled it out of the memory hole. Knowing what we know now it's kinda eerie and almost makes me feel sorry for Cankles.

Woman Banned From Every Pub and Club in Britain
She's only 20 and doesn't look too wrung out in this picture so I wonder what she did to get the barfly death penalty.

Cannibals!
Be on the look out for hungry Germans and Papuan tribesmen. And I guess there's a reason spam is so popular in the Pacific islands.
