INSPIRATION: GENE SPLICING, SYNTHETIC​ BIOLOGY, AND NUCLEAR MUTATIONS

I came up with a complex origin story for the Kaiju in my new story. I decided to take a Frankenstein approach and draw inspiration from various forms of science. I am currently watching three documentaries that focus on gene splicing, synthetic biology, and nuclear mutations. By studying all the details of these three scientific fields, I believe I can piece together a scientifically plausible way to create a Kaiju. I will keep you updated on any further developments.

ANIME GODZILLA

I saw the first Godzilla anime film, Planet of the Monsters, and I was VERY pleased with what I saw. This version of Godzilla is easily the largest incarnation of the King of the Monsters of all time! He is 300 meters tall, which is less than 1,000 feet high! This Godzilla is the size of a mountain instead of a skyscraper and he is even bigger than either Shin Godzilla, which is 118 meters, and Legendary‘s Godzilla, which is 108 meters. The one thing I find weird about this Godzilla is that he appears to be a plant instead of a reptile like he traditionally is. However, plant or no plant, this Godzilla is not only the largest of them all, but he also wields unimaginably frightening power! With one swing of his tail, Godzilla can unleash shockwaves that obliterate everything in their path and his atomic breath takes the form of a transparent beam of energy that causes a path of death and destruction that stretches for miles and miles! Also, Godzilla’s invulnerability and regenerative capabilities are further augmented by a personal force field that is generated by an organ under his dorsal fins. Overall, this Godzilla is not only the biggest and mightiest version of Godzilla in terms of offense and defense, but he is truly worthy of his crown as King of the Monsters! GOJIRA!!!

FILM REVIEW: KONG: SKULL ISLAND

I saw the new King Kong film and I have mixed feelings regarding it. While I did enjoy the creature designs, setting, and special effects, I feel the story moved too fast for my liking. Still, I enjoyed what I could catch and was pleased with what waited for me at the end of the credits. After the credits was a clear hint that famous Kaiju such as Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah are going to appear together in a future film. This further elaborates on the plan of having Godzilla and King Kong go toe-to-toe for the first time since 1962. If you are looking for thrills and monster fights, then this is the film for you.

FILM REVIEW: THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS

Tonight, my beloved pit bulls and I traveled in time to the year 1953 as we watched the classic monster film The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms. It was an enjoyable film even though the special effects were cheesy and unrealistic compared to today’s films. Whether if it is cheesy or not, I always love a good monster film. Also, this film had dinosaur references in it, which called to my inner kid. I would recommend this film to anyone who is seeking a classic.

MUSIC INSPIRATION: GODZILLA’S THEME

Because my autism allows me to better envision my stories through music, I found another song that can help in my future endeavors. The following video includes Godzilla’s classic theme song. In my opinion, this song is the theme song of all Kaiju and I cannot watch a Kaiju film without hearing this song in my head. As I brainstorm the groundwork for my future Kaiju story, I sit in my chair and listen to this song repeatedly. Each time I hear this song, the images and aspects of the story become increasingly more vivid. I look forward to when the my ideas for my new story are finally complete.
