9.10.2011: Interview w/ Adam Alexander of The Monster Project
This particular episode (episode 41) may just go down as one of my favorites. Why, you might ask? Because our guest tonight on the Kaijucast is Adam Alexander of The Monster Project! What’s that? You haven’t heard of The Monster Project, you say?! You are in luck, sir or madame as the case may be, because not only does Adam talk about the CD he created, we also play two of the tracks on the show… and, if that’s not enough, you can always check out his website to hear the whole thing for free. Now, even though you can listen for free, I really, really hope some of you buy the CD because (and this harkens back to my love of DIY projects) Adam and the rest of his septet made this! Blood, sweat and tears and all that. If you want to hear more from the project in future episodes, I will be happy to oblige.
I also need to mention that while we don’t have any real Godzilla news, I do have some thoughts to share about the Godzilla comics from IDW Publishing. As always, here in Portland we have a ton of great events going on. So if our fair city is accessible to you, you might enjoy the excellent local events listed below. And please don’t leave the site before you check out the amazing contest I’m kicking off today thanks to the sponsor, Impact Merchandising! This could be your chance to fill your closet or dresser with a whole lot of Godzilla shirts! The last thing I want to mention here, there’s something odd about this particular episode’s musical content: not a single one of the following songs heard in this show are symphonic pieces. I dunno… I find that very cool.
MONSTROUS ROCK MUSIC:
1. Stomp Tokyo by The Creeping Cruds
2. Hats off to You (Godzilla) by The Groovie Ghoulies
3. Main Title from The Monster Project
4. Godzilla vs. Mothra from The Monster Project
