The Origin of the Name

Someone asked me how I came up with the name "Send More Monsters."

For this we have to go all the way back to high school. A friend of mine introduced me to the old chop-socky, low-budget superhero flick "Inframan." In it the evil Princess Dragon Mom (?) was inundating the surface world with a slew of unstoppable monsters that were destroying civilization.

Destroying civilization until, that is, INFRAMAN showed up.

One of Princess Dragon Mom's shocked flunkies reported that Inframan had defeated all the monsters. Now what was she going to do? Sneering wickedly, in the way only a platinum-blonde, rubber-monster matron can, Princess Dragon Mom replied: "Send more monsters!"

And then I understood. It was like I was shot. Shot with a diamond. A diamond bullet went through my forehead, and I thought 'My God! The genius of that!'

For you see, there is no problem so great that it can not be solved by Sending More Monsters.

First Post

And here it is, the obligatory first post! I suppose you wonder why I started a blog this late into the monstrous ongoing gestalt that is blogging. What could I possibly say of any value that hasn't been repeated ad infinitum across the blogosphere? Well, probably nothing.

What is this blog going to be used for, you ask? Deep, philosophical ruminations upon the untapped meanings behind various pop culture phenomena? Yes! Oh yes! And so much more! My tired brain has run out of storage space and I need a place to keep my stuff; stuff I can not bear to let fall unremarked, yet not the garden variety of idle thoughts that I leave in my wake like the pellets of a defecating giraffe. That is all!
