You know what’s annoying? When you spend an entire month profiling Japanese monsters, then check your web stats to find the following list of top search terms:
||alison brie fakes
||count von count
||carrie fisher hot
||velma scooby doo actress
||tina fey is hot
||gozer the destructor
||tina fey hot
||tina fey fakes
||star wars visions
||alison brie fake
Okay, I know that I’ve encouraged the “Alison Brie fakes” thing. (Fun fact: I am now the top Google hit for that term, despite the complete lack of such content.) Alison, have no fear; I will not be pasting your head on anyone else’s body now or in the future.
But, come on…why the fuck am I still getting all these hits for “Barbie Musketeer?” Folks, I have mentioned Musketeer Barbie exactly once, in the context of a post about Hallmark ornaments made nearly a year and a half ago. There will never again be a post about Barbie Musketeers on this blog unless it’s me bitching about the people coming here looking for them.
I spent the entire month of July blogging about the cult favorite film Flash Gordon. Hmm…what doesn’t appear even once on the list? Speed Racer? Nope. Latitude Zero? Hell, no.
Guys, I am very disappointed in you.
A note of clarification: In recognition that I am, in fact, old and that the phrase “Japanese monsters” may have different connotations to you young punks, I want to make something clear. If you have come here looking for any of the following:
- Death Note
- Legend of the Overfiend (okay, even that’s dating me)
- anything involving damp, stringy-haired ghosts
- Alison Brie fakes (nothing to do with monsters, but I keep getting hits for that phrase)
- especially Dragonball Z
Keep moving, there’s nothing to see here. Instead, I’m talking old-school, city-stomping creatures, or as the gaijin would have it, “kaiju.” That’s a Japanese word meaning “man in a rubber dinosaur suit.”
Which brings me to…
|Monster Island Nickname
|Movies Appeared In
(not counting stock footage)
The remarkable thing about Gorosaurus is that he’s generally unremarkable. No flashy death rays, hook hands or freeze tongues for him. He’s just a dinosaur.
That’s understandable, because he was introduced in King Kong Escapes as nothing more than one of the prehistoric inhabitants of Kong’s island home.
Toho dusted off the suit the following year for their kaiju jamboree, Destroy All Monsters. I suspect that Gorosaurus’ inclusion had less to do with his popularity than that the suit was still in good shape and helped fill out the roster.
That said, Gorosaurus built a rep for himself in his second appearance. First, he subbed for the ailing Baragon in burrowing up beneath Paris’ Arc de Triomphe*. Later, he was one of the main participants in the film’s final battle against the space dragon King Ghidorah, delivering a devastating kangaroo kick.
*Baragon still got the credit. Stupid Baragon.
It’s time, once again, for the search terms that have brought poor, unfortunate souls to this blog.

So, what have we learned? Lots of folks looking for “Tina Fey Hot.” Far fewer who redundantly deemed her “Hot Hot Hot.” At least one schmuck searching in vain for “Tina Fay.” “Barbie musketeers” get nearly twice as many hits as I do. And this post continues to bring me the occasional person in pursuit of “Alison Brie fakes.” (I only search for “Alison Brie reals.”)
And I have no idea what “Ñ%81ÐµÑ%81Ñ%82Ñ%80Ñ%8b Ð±Ð¸Ñ%82Ð²Ñ%8b” is.
