Movie Monster is the brainchild of Barry Holiday and is produced by Brock LaBorde of Studio8.net out in Hollwood somewhere. It is a semi-mostly-sorta-weekly review of recent movies, hosted by a monster with a garbly voice. So, you know, it’s pretty much, like, the perfect thing.
An Unordered List of List Items

Some of these I may dedicate future posts to in my “How To” category… We’ll see. More on that later.
Before you go, watch this video Barry made sans monster costume.
I’ve watched that at least half a dozen times, and it’s still funny to me.
