  4. Crackle has so many Gozilla movies. But, Sony does own Crackle so I guess it makes sense.

  5. Godzilla vs. Mothra...best b&w movies growing up!! We used to turn the volume down and adlib what they were saying while moving their lips in Japanese. Hey, we didn't have smart phones, computers and video games back then. We had to entertain ourselves somehow. Oh, and we didn't have Jersey Shore in tv either! Thank god!!!!!!

  6. Love the Haiku but where are those little Japanese women who sing while flying on Mothra's back? What about Gamera? You can see what kind of culture I had growing up:)

  7. Although that movie looks funny today, when I was a kid it terrified me. I've always been afraid of Raymond Burr.

  9. Well, it's high time Godzilla showed up! He must have been pretty restless waiting around for "H."

  10. You know, I don't think Basho did it this way... then again, he doesn't have much of an audience anymore. Light 'er up!

  11. GOJIRRA!

    A haiku about haikus? How meta. Also apparently "haikus" isn't a word according to Google. Jebus only knows what the plural of haiku is.
