Seabozu: the angsty self-aware monster of the dead themonstervault: “Monsters are tragic beings; they are born too tall, too strong, too heavy, they are not evil by choice.

The Weekly Ansible

That is their tragedy"-Ishiro Honda Seabozu is an odd monster to begin with for the Vault, but I’ve chosen him because he embodies the meeting of the camp aspects of monster films and the more serious side.Appearing in an episode 35 of the original Ultraman series titled, “The Monster Graveyard,” the kaiju Seabozu is unlike any other being faced by Ultraman. The Science Patrol (the protagonists in this procedural show) stumble on the Monster Graveyard while taking a stroll through space and are informed that it is the home of all the kaiju dispatched by Ultraman.

Is Henry Jaglom the real Woody Allen? IRENE IN TIME opens; Q&A w/ filmmaker

It took TrustMovies awhile before he realized how hooked he'd become on this guy's films. Now, he can't wait for the next one to pop up -- which it does, every couple or three years. Since 1971, beginning with A Safe Place, Jaglom has written 19 films and directed 18 of them (two are cur-rently in post-produc-tion). The Definitive Guide to Enlightening Information.

Hip-Hop and Politics - Neo-Griot. April 8, 2014 Note from BW of Brazil: Today, we take on a topic that will undoubtedly be part of any conversation about the imagery of Brazil: sex tourism.

Neo-Griot

Let’s face it, Brazil has long promoted itself as a country of sexual freedom, sensuality and beautiful women.

For the past two months, I have been visiting, interviewing and working with the worker-owners of Argentina's empresasa recuperadas, or "taken factories".
