Like my brothers before me, I was always rather a gothic kid growing up in the Sixties. My Mum and Dad didn't know what to do with me sometimes. I just had to watch Appointment with Fear, catch up with Scooby Doo, stay up to watch any Hammer film going and basically monster out at every opportunity! If there weren't enough monsters in the shops I'd save up and send off for some by mail order! Good old postal orders! One I remember clearly is this soft plastic shrunken head I recently saw online. It brought back happy memories of my own Jivara skull dangling on elastic. It had my poor Parents worried sick! Funny how an entire generation can have been monster mad and turned out completely normal! We were the original goths without knowing it and Halloween was OUR moment. The year is round once more and right on cue I find myself quietly singing Monster Mash and driven by an unseen force raising my arms and clunking round as though I had huge boots on! "I was working in the lab late one night.......!"
Anyone else monster bonkers?
