Destroy 60% of Available Monsters

Destroy 60% of Available Monsters

For the last two years, I’ve done a half-hour set at Fearless Comecy Productions’ “Die Laughing” comedy marathon, and both times it’s been a super-hot audience and I have enjoyed it quite a good deal. Here’s 2016’s, where I discuss ancillary Godzilla monsters – Mothra and Rodan and pals. Check it out! And pardon the...

Get Off My World #25: Lumpy and Unpleasant

Hello. Ahem. Hello. I’m back. Hopefully to stay; I’ve been messing around with podcasting hardware and software and results are promising so far. But for now, please enjoy my guest-starring on the extraordinary Doctor Who podcast “Get Off My World”! I’m the guest monster expert, and we talk about the Third Doctor series “The Dinosaur Invasion,” and argue about...

Alien Odds: The Drake Equation (Part Four)

And now: The thrilling conclusion of our discussion of the Drake Equation! The links to the three prior Monster Science posts on this matter should be around here somewhere, but clicking links is super hard so we’ll briefly recap. Here’s the Drake Equation. The N is the number of civilizations in the galaxy with which communication might be possible....

Alien Odds: The Drake Equation (Part Three)

Beaking news, all you guys! Inspired, doubtlessly, by the discussion of the Drake Equation right here on Rev. Matt’s Monster Science, the University of Aberdeen has released a study this month proposing that there might be more planets that can sustain life than previously thought! The study goes after the ‘Goldilocks Zone,’ this being the scientific expression of the...

The Professor Pterosaur Project, Part One

The Professor Pterosaur Project, Part One

In the autumn of 2010, I was living in New Jersey, and working in Manhattan, 30 miles away. I always took the train to work, because driving in New York City is for people who’ve decided they’re no longer interested in having positive emotions. I did this only once, in Staten Island, which doesn’t really count. Any New Yorker...

Alien Odds: The Drake Equation (Part Two)

Welcome back to Alien Month on Rev. Matt’s Monster Science, and our discussion of the Drake Equation – a mathematical means of framing the odds of intelligent life existing on other planets, and its coming to see us. Last week we got through f sub p, which expressed the number of planets in the galaxy, which, as it turns...

Link Extravaganza: January 2014

Please – I beg of you – enjoy these links to some of the Internet’s finest monster-related content. EXCELLENCE IN THE FIELD OF ‘DINOSAUCERS’ DIVISION Matt Frank’s redesigns of classic, modern, famous, and obscure daikaiju are extraordinary. To say nothing of his ‘Dinosaucers’ work. You don’t remember ‘Dinosaucers’? I’ll…I’ll have to explain another time; there’s no room here. HERE...

Krampus: The Raw Footage

Krampus: The Raw Footage

For my birthday in September of 2013, the inimitable Amy Wendt and I threw a party in which the hook was that everyone (who wanted to) was supposed to bring me a monster-themed liquor, and drink it with me on camera, for a special episode of Rev. Matt’s Monster Science. The party was an enormous success, but one part...

How To Contract Lycanthropy

How To Contract Lycanthropy

This week’s entry is my third appearance at the Encyclopedia Show Minneapolis, way back in December of 2012! (Which explains the bit at the end of my piece.) It’s the first one where I began to get abusive with that show’s monthly theme, which was, in this case, “Obsolete Diseases.” Still, it went over pretty okay, and afterwards Mike...
