10.17.2012: Kodoja attacks the Kaijucast!

Kodoja: Terror Mountain Showdown

The Kodoja statue at New York City Comic Con!

Episode 67 is here and we are talking with Keith Foster of the funk sensation Big Pimp Jones about their latest multimedia excursion, Kodoja: Terror Mountain Showdown. I had the pleasure of meeting Keith this summer in San Francisco and I really love/appreciate what he and his crew are doing. Kodoja is an album, a comic and an ongoing story about a giant monster running amok… what’s not to love?

In addition to promoting the current release, I wanted to showcase the kickstarter project that is currently underway. So far their entire production has been financed out of pocket and they need your help to get the next issue to the printer!

And it wouldn’t be an episode of the Kaijucast without a nice hunk of tunes to entertain your earholes, would it? That’s why (aside from the request) I’ve chosen these beauties for you to hear and jam to:

1. Esper Chorus by Akira Ifukube from Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1993)
2. Earth’s Greatest Deathmatch by Michiru Oshima from Godzilla vs. Megaguirus (2001)
3. The Rising by Big Pimp Jones from Project: Kyojo (2012)
4. Descending Upon Monsters by Big Pimp Jones from Kodoja: Terror Mountain Showdown (2012)

Because this month contains my favorite holiday (Halloween – and I’m sure I’m not alone) and I have a TON of work to do on my costume, we have a shortened schedule for the Daikaiju Discussion. You only have a few more days to send in your thoughts, questions & reviews for Son Of Godzilla! We’ll be watching the dubbed International DVD from Sony. Just make sure that if you want to participate, you get that “homework” mailed in by the 22nd to have your contributions added to the next episode!
