Anyway, I am very happy to be here, anyway, I have always had doubts about my (Roman Catholic) faith, until May this year when I realized I was wrong on gay marriage, when I realized I was Bi. By July, I became an atheist.
Anyway, I am a pro life Republican.

Welcome godzilla. Though you will run into some opposition on abortion, and be teased about being republican, I nonetheless welcome you.

Not everyone is entitled to their own opinion. They're all entitled to mine though.

I'm not fond of old monster movies, but what little I've seen of the new movie looks awesome.

Welcome to the forum, godzilla. Another kaiju geek here; I remember being terrified by the Big Guy's titular opponent in Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster.

Interesting to have a pro-life atheist here, though I don't think you're the only one. I'm pro-choice myself, but having a diverse group is better for avoiding echo-chamber syndrome.

Edit: pro-life, not pro-choice, d' oh! Thanks, Nam.

He's "pro-life" not "pro-choice". He doesn't believe in women having rights. He's a good Republican. ;)

Welcome, my kaiju themed friend. Whats your favorite old-school-rubber-suit monster flick? Are you a Heisei or a Showa era fan? Or are you one of those millennium loving heathens? :laugh:

I look forward to hearing your opinions on the abortion question. Pro life isn't a very popular position among the non-religious.

This is the problem with the term "pro-life", it's mainly read as "anti-life" when in concern to those who are "pro-choice".

Oooooh! I must have watched Godzilla vs the sea monster about 100 times when I was a wee little one. Good choice.

My favorite was Godzilla 1985. Old Raymond Burr was awesome!

welcome, godzilla.  Oh, I have a godzilla story for you...

In August 2013 a t GenCon (if you don't know, that's the annual gaming convention in Indianapolis, started by Gary Gygax in his basement in Geneva, Indiana back in the 70's I believe), I attended "Tracy Hickman's Killer Breakfast."  What this is, is improv comedy.  Hickman takes 8 folks at a time, sits them in front of the audience with a puny character, and asks where everyone's character comes from and why their character is here.   Then, he sets a scenario ("You're all in the Shire, and drow elves start pouring out of hobbit holes, killing the halflings.  What do you do?") to which all participants reply their actions.  They typical response from Hickman is "XYZ happens, and you all die.  Good bye...next 8 please"  and so it goes for about 90 minutes.  The ostensible "object" is to survive as long as you can.

It's really funny.  Sometimes folks are well prepared; for example, there was one dude dressed as a Jedi, with a book entitled "Star Wars by William Shakespeare" and he went into a soliloquy from Shakespeare (forget which play) infused with Star Wars stuff.  It was hilarious.

but not the highlight of the show...

At one point, a clearly Asian gent sits down, and puts a recording/playback device in front of himself.  When Hickman asks him "who are you, and what are you doing here?"  the guy reads Japanese off a paper.  meanwhile, two cohorts run behind him with a banner reading "I came from Japan to escape all the monsters!"

hahaha, funny!  but there's SO MUCH more...

Hickman then goes to the group with teh next piece of the scenario (which escapes me for the moment).  when he gets to our Asian friend, the guy says (again, reading in Japanese and "subtitled" with a running banner) "Oh no, here comes Godzilla!"  An d a dude dressed as Godzilla comes out while the panel member hits the playback device with the Godzilla roar.  Ohter guys come out wiht trees, buildings, and a cutout of G's breath weapon while the suited dude stomps around.

Then, the guy says "I'll summon the Twin Faries (or something) to get Mothra to help us!"  and a guy and a girl, dressed as th eteeny chicks, come out to sing the "I summon Mothra" song.  Then Mothra appears (it's a guy with a big moth on a sitck) to fight Big G, with silly stirng and everything.

After several moments of banners, monster combat, silly string, and other hilarity, here comes the punchline: (remember, the object is to survive without hickman killing you as long as you can)

"Surely no one else will die this day!"

Sorry to say, he still died.

PS--My favorite was Godzilla on Monster Island (I think that's what it was called; all the monsters ganged up on Monster Zero/King Ghidorah)

Edit: Nope, it was "Destroy All Monsters"

I truly believe that Godzilla moves are best enjoyed with a human and two robot puppets mocking them.
An Omnipowerful God needed to sacrifice himself to himself (but only for a long weekend) in order to avert his own wrath against his own creations who he made in a manner knowing that they weren't going to live up to his standards.

And you should feel guilty for this. Give me money.

Joel is a bit better than Mike, except the KTMA season and some of early season one. So Joel at his worst is not as good as Mike at his average, but discounting KTMA season "zero," Joel just has a better batting average. And of the Mads' assistants: TV's Frank.

And Ginger...Ginger all the way.

Joel.  Mike was perfect for bit-spots, like the Gamera song played by the oily lounge singer in "Gamera vs. Guiron" but Joel is simply more believable and genuine overall.

Here is a great quote from one of my favorite presidents, Thomas Jefferson.
Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear.
