In addition to last month’s post: Imperius Rex! Hand puppet dinosaur rules the world. The Roger Corman produced movie Carnosaur is one of those wondeful examples that can be neatly wrapped up in a single picture. It’s simple, silly and unashamedly pathetic, and all that in all the right places - a true guilty pleasure if ever there was one, just do yourself the favour and avoid the uninspired sequels that followed.
"When someone doesn't show up, the people who wait sometimes tell stories about what might have happened and come to half believe the desertion, the abduction, the accident. Worry is a way to pretend that you have knowledge or control over what you don't--and it surprises me, even in myself, how much we prefer ugly scenarios to the pure unknown. Perhaps fantasy is what you fill up maps with rather than saying that they too contain the unknown."— Rebecca Solnit
