From The FIRST Lost Cave Of Cool - A Caturday Adventure

When I taught computers many moons ago I had the kids work with photoshop to create a series of doctored photos that had to tell some kind of story. They also had to include themselves in the pictures in some way. This was the one I created as an example. Some are taken from the net and some I created myself. But they didn't have to know that did they? And YES I was obsessed with giant kitties back then.

No one is really sure exactly when it was that the Giant Kitties came on the scene. It was like they were everywhere all of a sudden. We all knew then that our lives would never be the same. Here we see a rare archival photograph from the 1950s which shows one of the first recorded sightings of the Giant Kitties. Unfortunately the unknown reporter in this photograph went missing along with the cameraman who took this shot. All that was found was the map, a fedora and the camera this photograph came from.

Of course it was only a matter of time before the Kitties moved into the cities looking for more and more vehicles to play with. By climbing such buildings as the Empire State Building they mocked us openly. Their curiosity and playfulness left a path of destruction throughout most of North America.

Even though we had always heard of their dislike for water, a few swimming kitties was all it took to destroy the island of Japan despite the brave efforts of the Japanese people to battle the Giant Kitties. But it was all for naught. The kitties acted with a vengeance unheard of. This one that they called Catzilla was particularly spiteful.

Within less than a decade the giant animals had devastated most of the earth. Chief among the offenders where the before mentioned Giant Kitties, Dogs and Mice but also the Giant Squids off the coast of Iceland, the Man-eating Giant Rainbow Butt Monkey of Borneo, the Carnivorous Giant Spotted Root Mole of Siberia and the Giant Fire Ants of Africa. So expeditions were sent into space to find new planets for humans to colonize, planets unpopulated by anything bigger than it was meant to be. But the Kitties followed us, with a mad zeal, determined to wipe humanity not only from the face of planet Earth but from the Universe as well!!!.

It was then that one of our brilliant scientists came up with the idea to "travel back in time" to defeat the evil plans of the Giant Kitties and save some part of humanity. We chose the late Jurassic period but we were unaware that the Giant Kitties also possessed time travel technology. With their misbegotten offspring they continued to plague us and our efforts to rebuild our civilization.

However many of us decided to not return to the distant past but instead time travelled to the future - perhaps out of the deadly grasp of the Giant Kitties. But unbeknowst to us the kitties had only mutated, developing powerful lazer death beams that they shot from their eyes. The years had only made them more bitter, more hostile. But we fought them anyways. Crawling from the safely of our caves we lauched the first sucessful offensive against the Giant Kitties. Despite high casualties we were able to destroy a kitty litter processing plant they had outside of Poughkeepsie, N.Y.

Just when the advantage was clearly ours, they unleashed their biggest surprise yet on us. The damned kitties had made the perfect alliance. They traded all their buried poopies to the Giant Dung Beetles for the help is destroying my unit! We lost 147 men that day. Most looked like overcooked barbecue or scratching posts once the Kitties had gotten finished with them. The alliance between the Beetles and the Kitties was devastating to our cause. Everything seemed hopeless until...

This Klaus Is A MENACE!

All You Can Do Is Watch Him Burn

Too bad he's not real. I wonder what T-Rex burgers would taste like.

A life-size animatronic Tyrannosaurus Rex at a Colorado dinosaur theme park went down in flames yesterday. Zach Reynolds, co-owner of Royal Gorge Dinosaur Experience, says it was probably caused by an electrical malfunction. Although the 24-foot-tall T-Rex is a big loss to the park, Reynold's had a sense of humor about it when he joked, “We knew he had a temper, but today he blew his top.” He added, "it made for some spectacular imagery along the way."  The good sport hopes a new dinosaur will take its place by this summer.

This One Hurts

Found this sitting ON TOP of a box of comic long boxes high up in the room. All these years they were fading in the sun and I had no idea the frame was up there. Why does this matter. These are the two comics that i had letters printed in - remember when comic books printed those? I didn't say anything great but I was impressed that they printed my words. For a guy who treasures his treasures like they are treasure because they are treasure, this hurts. I will post the letters over at the Cave of Cool if you are still interested. But for those who know I am sure you mourn with me this day.


I was such a loser fanboy.
Still am.

Damn, This Looks Good

I REFUSE To Find Out What This Madness Is All About

I really want to know because I have to know everything but for some reason THIS one seems really stupid and how can I sleep with the tin foil on my feet and how do I keep it ONE my feet without putting socks over the tin foil which I suspect negates the effect of the tin foil in the first place. Still. I must not know. I have to much else to stuff my brain with and I think I can let this one go. Call it a small victory for my mental health.

You really need to enlarge these to fully appreciate the beauty of these figures in motion. Many of these images were used as movie posters for some of the biggest adventure movies in the 50s and 60s. Only a few artists ever reach this level of technical genius in their lives so I like to show off those who have with this tribute.
