04.09.2011: Godzilla vs Wondercon (aka the Post-Con’ Wrapup)

Kaijucast Wondercon Wrapup

Kyle & Heather break down the majesty of San Francisco's 25th Wondercon! And speaking of majesty, check out those Wondercon exclusive Godzilla Kingdom Of Monsters issues.

Well we are back from the bay, people! This month, T’Igor, Justin, Heather and I drove down to a fantastic yearly convention called Wondercon. We went last year as patron’s but this year, we were covering the event for this little thing I keep doing here (I’m talking about the podcast, if I’m being too vague). There was a lot to see and if you aren’t a fan of the Kaijucast on facebook, make sure you like it and check out the Wondercon 2011 gallery. This three day convention was so much fun and we wanted to share the con-experience with you all.

Since I didn’t have anyone to actually interview in this episode, (the con was strangely devoid of any figureheads from the Godzilla comics or Legendary Pictures) I figured that I’d ask my good friend Heather to co-host the show with me. You should remember Heather from her appearance with Justin in episode 27 from February of this year (and the Terror of Mechagodzilla Daikaiju Discussion as well). So in this episode (which is available right here), we basically talk about what we did and saw at the show. I had such a good time chatting with Heather that we ended up making a long show, so I’ve trimmed that down to as close to an hour as I could. You should expect to see Heather on the show more if for no other reason that she’ll prevent me from droning on and on all by my lonesome. We’ll keep an eye on the time in future episodes, but I hope you enjoy our Wondercon wrapup. Here are the audio selections I played:



1. Go-go Godzilla by Brian Setzer from Soul Surfer
2. The Diet Building by Michiru Oshima from Godzilla x Mothra x Mechagodzilla: Tokyo SOS (2003)
3. U.S. Trailer from Frankenstein Conquers The World (1966)
4. Battle At Iwato Island by Masaru Satoh from Godzilla Raids Again (1955)
5. DaiMajin Is Angry by Akira Ifukube from Daimajin Returns (1966)

As I announced” in March, this month’s movie is not a widely seen film. And since I haven’t actually seen the 1967 Korean monster film, Yongary, Monster of the Deep yet, I have no idea what to expect – if it’s a stinker or if it’s pure gold, but we’ll find out during the last week of April, so make sure you turn your homework in by sending an email with your thoughts, questions and reviews by April 22nd to be included in the episode! See you all later this month – and I look forward to hearing what you have to say about Yongary!
