    What a strange milestone to reach. Still, makes the new season feel that much more official.

    If he hadn’t died, this would be the perfect time to make jokes about his name. I always wondered if western names in Korean/ Chinese ever sound like slang words or synonyms for private parts. That would be a hearty laugh at our expense; Yongary wasn’t a good movie, but it was beautifully photographed and the MST3K print was flawless, compared to the washed-out looking Godzilla/Gamera pictures. Sin-ui chugbog, Mr. Kim
