01.31.2010: Akemashite omedeto, Kaijucast fans!

Happy Twenty Ten, my loyal fans and new listeners and even those who don’t really care for the show! The new year is here and while it’s already been here for almost a month, I’m just starting things up! This month’s episode (which, by the way, is available for download here) features some very exciting stuff – mainly the brand new segment called Daikaiju Discussions! To kick off the new assignment based session, I invited all of my former guests (at least the locals) over to watch Godzilla Final Wars. After the film we talked about the film and I recorded it. But my fantastic guest this month was none other than my own son, T’Igor. We sort of got off on a video game tangent – clearly he knows more about this subject than I do, but it was a lot of fun talking with him only about Godzilla stuff. All in all, this episode has over two hours of content that I could have made into an Ultra-long episode, but I did my best and whittled it down to just over an hour (more like an hour and fifteenish minutes).  I’ll post the mostly unedited discussion in a few days – just because I think it was a real kick to hear. But you are probably wondering where that track listing has been placed. Well, you’ve been patient, so here you go:

1. Bio Wars by Koichi Sugiyama from Godzilla vs Biollante (1989)
2. Haora Mothra by Yuji Koseki from Rebirth of Mothra 3 (1998)
3. Godzilla vs. Radon by Akira Ifukube from Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla (1993)
4. King Of The Monsters by Keith Emmerson from Godzilla Final Wars (2004)
5. The King Seesar statue audio clip from Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974)
6. Showdown between the 3 Large Monsters in Okinawa II by Masaru Satoh from Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974)
7. Ending Titles by Keith Emmerson from Godzilla Final Wars (2004)

Angilas beats Mechagodzilla.... booyah!

That's right. I put the smackdown on my own son when we play Godzilla: Save The Earth. Don't give me that dirty look... I'm sure it teaches him some sort of life lesson.

I went to the internet to download a poster image for Wrath of Daimajin and all I found was this lousy low-res and too tall speed poster.DAIKAIJU DISCUSSIONS HOMEWORK:

Watch the 1966 Daiei film, Wrath Of Daimajin. In case you are wondering, this is the film with the kids crossing the mountain. If you have comments, questions or even just want to tell me what you liked best about this movie, email them to controller@kaijucast.com and I’ll compile everyone’s sentiments in Fevruary. Just make sure you get those questions in before I do the show (the deadline will be Monday, Feb 22nd).
