This will become a Halloween tradition if I have anything to say about it. I loved the original 'Monsters vs Aliens' movie and this short special is just as good as the movie albiet in a shorter form. Only on this night could the 'monsters' seem like oridnary trick or treaters. When mutant pumpkins go nuts all over town after aliens dump their septic waste on a local pumpkin patch our heroes have to step in, ignore their Halloween issues and save the day. Just like it happens in real life. I gotta admit the candy eating, illiterate, gobblygook spouting, pumpykins do freak me out a bit but everything is delicious and the animation looks candy coated and good enough to eat itself.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
