Konga – The Scourge of Mars

February 29, 12

The Scourge of MarsKonga fails in his attempt to hold up a waterfall set to drown a city below when his cracker-barrel knees give out at a critical juncture.

Oh sure, the humans make allies when convenient, like when they need a waterfall conveniently re-directed, or an elevated platform in the form of a giant palm from which to make an impressive speech.

With slight remorse for past trangressions against Konga, humans align against the Scourge of Mars, but only when they slowly realize that the Marsians (that’s how they spelled it in 1964!) are deftly re-sizing Konga and whipping him around the City with their shrink way.

Stand on this mighty shoulder, mankind, I will absorb the chest shots meant for you, while swatting at the enemy and mulling over my internal disgust.

Dino Lizard Gone Berzerk

May 30, 11

Once again, the mind control machinery is not portable. Someday there will be an i-Pad version freely available. For now, it is heavy and strains the back.

It involves quarter inch tape reels and large consoles that don’t fit easily onto a card table.

It requires that sturdy trunks be brought along to store additional tape reels. These reels record the signals being transmitted and any effects stimulated in the subject. Build a frawn shack to shade you from the Sun in your efforts to make contact.

The signal is cast like an analog net.

A giant dino-lizard beast responds and topples a griffin-lizard. This is no Tony Robbins tape being broadcast. No one moved the cheese, they gobbled it whole.

Hold your dog Spot back from the attack. It’s always the small dog that goes blindly after the big one unfettered.
