If you would have told me when I was a child that in a few years the biggest box office draws would be comic book flicks and the number one show on TV would be a zombie show, I wouldn’t have believed a word. But here we are. I’ve even heard a Misfits song on a commercial during prime time. These things are strange to me. How did it come about? When did the things it seemed only I cared about become the best thing going today? I’m not even trying to sound like a hipster or am I saying “Give me back what was originally mine!” These things existed long before I did.
I’m only thinking I hope you know how lucky you are. The internet has stepped up everyone’s game. Stores now have readily available the things I would order from the back of a magazine and wait weeks for. That’s awesome. In no way is it a bad thing for the things that you love to become popular. Quite the opposite in fact. It’s an amazing time to be me at least. If I need a Ghost Rider t-shirt, odds are I can just go to town and pick one up. No more waiting and it’s 20 bucks cheaper. Handy stuff. Everything is so accessible now that you can get a pack of smokes in the same place you can buy a Godzilla figure. I don’t advocate smoking mind you. I do, however, advocate the King Of The Monsters.
