Just trying to play a *bit* of devil's advocate here.

I will be turning the big 4-0 in less than a month. I grew up watching the showa films on TV, and to this day they are my favorites (DAM is still my favorite of all time), and honestly, as old as I am, the reason I watch these films is because of the love of fantasy, and for the monsters. To say I have absolutely zero interest in the human drama wouldn't be fair, but to be honest, it is minimal. I can say for sure however I have more interest in how these films are made, than the human drama in the film. I have listened to all audio commentaries available on DVD/BRD multiple times. Also one of my favorite books is August Ragone's Eiji Tsuburaya Master of Monsters.

Now to dismiss the entire fan base I think is a little unfair. Sure there has no doubt been an inflation of new fans due to G2014. I mean I don't hold any judgment against Ed G. and Steve, I may just feel (perhaps incorrectly), that they may be deflecting their reasons. Maybe they are just not as passionate they once were? maybe they are just simply to busy with other responsibilities in life? Maybe they are just in a lull?

Whatever the reason, I would love to see this project completed one day, and I would fully support it financially. But to make a blanket statement just seems....off to me. Not saying it is entirely inaccurate, just not 100% factual either. But I know I have been jaded about some of my passions before, thinking in my mind "other fans have ruined it for me". It's kind of sad when we start to cannibalize ourselves. Remembering the days when I would handwrite letters . or make phone calls to fellow fans, just to have someone to converse with. now we have this place where hundreds of us can come together, and if all we *seemingly* do is complain, it can be depressing at times.

I do think that the instant and total accessibility of the modern internet has dissipated a certain type of nerd energy. It's created a short attention span style where news on twitter and comments sections have replaced magazines/fanzines, books, pen-palls, and (yes) message boards.

Shorter bursts of text and images, rapid fire. There's no time for in-depth, only for attention grabbing hot-takes and a bullet-point versions of things.

Can you still order issues of Japanese Giants or is the site unresponsive? It's something I've been meaning to do for a while but the site hasn't been updated in years.

Why not start a Kickstarter for the funding of new issues? I honestly never bothered with the last issue because there is so much information about the original Godzilla that is already widely available. The idea of getting a magazine solely focused on one of the more obscure films like Frankenstein Conquers the World sounds fascinating, and I would contribute money to see it be made.

Scorsese's doing the preface?! Amazing! That should bump the title's recognition a bit!

A friendly suggestion: How about putting posts about JAPANESE GIANTS in the JAPANESE GIANTS thread?:

viewtopic.php?f=31&t=14101

I'm not being sarcastic, I just think more people might see them there, and we can keep this thread on-topic.

^I was like "oh, no! November? It'll be 2018 when this is ready!"... then I looked and saw that those posts were made in October. False alarm, guys.
:oops:

Can't wait to read this book.
