Sometimes small things can get so out of hand they take on a life of their own. Often, I think this blog may be one of those things. I find myself thinking about future posts while at work. I daydream about possible topics while driving around town. While thrifting I think things like, "how would this piece photograph?" Most disturbingly, while talking to friends and family I seem to be able to steer any conversation back to my blog. Could it be that this hobby of mine has made me a tad narcissistic? Better yet, is it possible to have a personal style blog and not be a little, "into yourself?" I guess what I am really getting at here is that I believe my new found obsession for blogging may be getting serious. I seem to have created a monster. Fortunately for me, it is a monster I quite enjoy. Yep, me and Blogzilla have hit it off very well.
Now of course, I do not always enjoy all monsters. As an example, take the classic character, "Godzilla." On the day the above photos were taken my parents and I attended a showing of the new version of this classic movie. Now this particular film is an example of a monster that needed to die. Unlike my friend Blogzilla, whom I find creative, therapeutic, and at times even witty, "Godzilla," was boring, cliche, and a downright disappointing nod to its prior self. I mean come on, this monster only shot fire out of his mouth during one scene! That would be like me photographing a handbag for only one post! One should never ignore their best features.
The saddest thing about the new, "Godzilla," was witnessing a classic kitsch monster morph into a crappy construction of what it once was. Thank goodness Blogzilla is still a brand new baby eager to mature into something grander. Hopefully during this transformation Blogzilla's mother will not herself transform into a classic kitsch monster. Although, it did work out well for, "Godzilla's," ego. How else would he have had the guts to star in such a ridiculous movie?
