Thank goodness that today’s news about Triceratops—you know, the horribly depressing discovery that they probably never existed —didn’t hit until today. Otherwise, we might have been robbed of Toy Story 3’s Trixie the Triceratops, undoubtedly the most adorable addition to the Toy Story universe since Bullseye, and a standout comedic performance as voiced by the equally adorable Kristen Schaal.

Another ghost from cubicle past

Here’s another beasty I had hanging in my cubicle at the Getty for many years. My friend Taras (update yer blog, will ya buddy?) cut out a newspaper clip for me about a giant monster festival at the American Cinematheque. This image is from Godzilla: Final Wars, a film which, despite featuring nearly every kaiju from the entire Godzilla series, is hands down, one of the worst films I’ve ever seen.

We report, you decide.

In this dramatic visualization, a Gama-Go kaiju takes a bite out of Randy’s Donuts.

And if you like this kaiju, then you’ll probably dig Gama-Go’s new “Too Big 2 Fail” t-shirt. Buy one for your favorite blogger today!
