Observation for Now

Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.

-- Kurt Vonnegut

Farewell to Uncle Forry


Fangs for the memories:
Of Frankenstein and Drac,
Of Wolf Man and his pack,
The punning binge that made Moms cringe
But kept kids coming back;
We thank you so much!

Fangs for the memories:
The spider scene in Kong,
Senior and Junior Lon,
The Joie de vivre each kid received
Which told us we belonged;
We thank you so much!


Here's a 1x1-inch sketch of Forrest J Ackerman, scanned from Famous Monsters of Filmland #104, January, 1974, and played with a little.
