Cool post on Kirby monsters. Never realized how closely he followed his own template until I thought about it and, sure enough, every monster pretty much followed the same pattern, right down to The Thing. I always liked the early Thing design - ambiguous (what was he made of exactly? Wasn't really rocky at first. Couldn't tell), monstrous, grotesque. When the design became more definitive ('rock man') he was still cool, but I liked the big lumpy design with a round head more for some reason.That is a great photo of you and your friends with Kirby, Ellis. Must have been a memorable moment.
The moment was all due to Shel Dorf. Lesson to learn from Shel Dorf. Be pushy. People will call you pushy. But they will also let you in where you want to go and in most cases be happy the pushy guy is out there making things happen.Anyone else in that picture that's still alive remember where we were in Thousand Oaks? In later years TO became very familiar to me. But at that time I barely knew how to get up and down the 5 without feeling lost.I'd like to pinpoint where Jack and his wife lived at that time.
I missed that day because I was going on my second or third date with Sue. My love of Kirby has grown considerably since then, but so has my love for Sue. :)
