Are You a Monster Kid?

Are you a Monster Kid?

Did you grow up with Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine?

Did you build glow in the dark Aurora Monster Model kits?

Maybe you did, maybe you didn’t.

No matter when you were born, no matter how old or how young you are, if you love monster movies, then you are, by definition, a Monster Kid, and boy do I have something for YOU!

To celebrate this most awesome of holidays, I am, with permission performing an wonderful essay written by David Colton, former editor at USA Today, and current Grand Poobah of The Rondo Awards and The Classic Horror Film Boards called “Monster Kids”.

It’s an annual tradition for David to post the essay on the above CHFB every Halloween, and, with his kind permission, I have recorded it so that all us Monster Kids will have something awesome to listen to each year!

It’s my hope that this small, brief essay will remind you of your youth, remind you about the things that you loved as a child, and how maybe, by revisiting those loves and passions, that you can bring more hope and happiness into your life now.

Thank you to all my Patrons, all my subscribers and all my listeners!
