A Decade of Drinkin’

Gamera

Wednesday, June 9, 2010, 5:44 pm.

10 years ago to this day I started Drinkin’ & Drive-in, and began a decade long crawl through the gold-filled mud and muck of horror and sci-fi movies that’ve been my obsession since the Dawn of Mankind. And I say that without hyperbole. More or less.

Kaiju

The first blog written/posted was about one of my all-time fav monsters: Gamera, a Godzilla-sized turtle that could shoot flames out of his mouth AND ass. (I can do one or the other, but not both.) Outside of that, I really didn’t have a vision or goal with this blog, other than to blather on about horror movie stuff filled with mouth-twisting typos, 3rd grade grammatical errors and taking extreme liberties with the English language. (I tried Spanish but only managed to learn one word: “cerveza.” I picked the one word that has served me well.)

Gamera

I’ve really enjoyed e-barfing in public. It’s almost as fun as farting in church. On that note, I’d like to thank long-time readers of Drinkin’ & Drive-in and some awesomely funny comments you’ve left me. (“May the devil guide my poop…” — that still cracks me up, Jon from NC.)

Gamera

10 years is/was a good run. But now it’s time to say adiós amoebas. I’m off to pursue other life goals, like chasing parked cars, sponge diving in community swimming pools and collecting air. Future hobbies that will never generate any income includes putting out three e-books (already written), possibly another issue ManSplat magazine (been doing that longer than this blog, despite a 10 year absence), learning how to play the kazoo (man, those things are hard to tune), and generally doing loud stuff.

So now I leave you with a final post — feel free to finish this sentence…

“The past, the present, and the future walk into a bar…”

Thank You

  1. Sad to see you go. I wish you all the best!

    “It was tense.”
    It has been a hell of a great blog. I could never understand why it hasn’t had a much bigger following. Through you I have discovered countless low budget gems among the dross, And it was always a treat to get a new heads up on upcoming Kaiju movies. Gotta love Gamera, the giant atomic turtle and friend to all the children.
    If its time to hang it up and move on to different things, so be it. Good luck in your future plans. You have a lot to be proud of here.

    Ave atque vale,

    And about the Kazoo playing; Remember, if you suck at playing the kazoo–that is probably why.

  3. Noooooooooo!!!! Can’t be the End??!!!! We’ll miss your input and hulariousness on here!! Butt we’ll just have to continue it in the next issue!!
    Love you!!

    This is the most terrifying post I’ve read from you yet! I can’t imagine not having you in my inbox for laughs, film recommendations, and tchotchke I will ultimately spend my rent money on.

    You’ve kept me howling (like a werewolf shopping for beer in a quickie mart arguing about Elvis) for so long and I can’t thank you enough. You waded through the muck of horror/sci-fi cinema to bring us the absolute worst of it (and sometimes best, I guess).

    You feel like a friend, though we live on opposite sides of the country, and someone with whom I’d love to drink cheap beer to regrettable proportions.

    Wish you all the best in all your future endeavors. Thanks for all the splatter, laughs, and love. You’re kinda my hero.

    P.s. Got any other ways we can stay up on all your upcoming projects? I’m on board for anything you put out. Except maybe that Godzilla burlesque review. Still out on that idea.
