09.30.2010: Godzilla 2012 & Fan reactions

Godzilla podcast host, Kyle Yount

Sure I have the shirt, but who needs that AR effect when I have Photoshop skills!

This month’s episode of the Kaijucast, which will be sneaking into it’s September position in the very last few hours, is the twenty-first show and available for download right here, features no special guest. Instead we delve into the subject of the upcoming 2012 Godzilla project from Legendary Pictures. Because I have no co-host for this month -flying solo, if you will- I asked listeners on the Kaijucast facebook page to submit their thoughts on the interview with producer Brian Rogers that was posted at the end of last week (Sept 21st).

It’s a bit wonky to do an entire show by myself when I’m just used to having a co-host, but it is what it is! Thanks go out to everyone who wrote in with their thoughts – both on the 2012 film and the Daikaiju Discussion for this month, the original 1961 Mothra! I’m sure some of you are eager to see what audio delights I shared with you all this month.

1. Godzilla Theme from Godzilla A Capella
2. Main Theme by Akira Ifukube from Rodan (1956)
3. Back In Action by Nobuhiko Moreno from Godzilla Final Wars (2004)

10/05 & 10/19: Geek Trivia
Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1993)The October discussion’s focus will be on the 1993 Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla – a fan-favorite of the Heisei series. We’ll be watching a subtitled version of the film, so there may be some discrepancies between it and the Sony version. Just make sure that you watch the film and get your homework turned in before the last week of the month. I am considering changing that due date next year (these late releases are tending to kick my proverbial tail). Just email it to me and I’ll get your notes included in the October episode.
You can download the twenty-first episode of the Kaijucast right here! Feel free to write me if you are enjoying the podcasts or if you have any music requests, questions or even ideas for future shows, too. I hope you enjoy the show – I kinda felt it was a little rambley!
