Rondo Remembers: I Smell Monsters and Memories

I heard years ago that the sense of smell is one of the strongest triggers for memories. Now I do take note of that, a lot!

It is a rush of flashbacks when I open an old FAMOUS MONSTERS magazine or comic book. That yellowed newsprint snaps into my mind's view, laying on my bed browsing comics and magazines for hours. Radio playing...Boris Karloff to Jack Kirby in my eyes.

Cracking open a cardboard model kit box with that "woof" and a rush of fresh plastic aroma bring it back! Sitting on the picnic table on my parent's front porch....pulling the model kit pieces off the plastic tree. Bending the "flange" back and forth on some parts to break it off.

A more personal memory is the industrial cleaner used to mop the floors of the recreation building at Grove City College when I was a kid. My grandfather managed the building and that smell brings into view those days. There was a long hallway that lead to the swimming pools. Many times we would walk down that ceramic tiled hall, my grandfather letting me run ahead. He would snap the lights off. No windows. Total darkness. Then from my dear grandfather came a maniacal laugh that echoed down that long ceramic hallway. Well, that probably is one reason I now live the crazy life I do.

The smell of fresh cut grass. That always is a wonderful aroma that places me, plop, back on a Saturday morning in the early 1970s. Saturday cartoons, and the building excitement of the monster movies on TV through the day. It all starts with that smell of fresh cut grass (accompanied by the distant buzzing of neighborhood lawn mowers). Saturdays! Yes.

The odors of sweet candies and spilled soda pop. I catch a whiff of those somewhere and I think of the days helping my dad clean the "Youth Center" in Grove City, PA on weekends. The dance floor and concession area reeking of stale sweetness. My imagining that building was full of Frankenstein monsters that lived at the bottom of the stairs and dark, shadowed areas of that youth center. I was only five or six...but those memories flood back with that stale sweet smell.

Buttered popcorn and a very slight smell of mildew in cavernous movie theaters. Seeing scary movies or giant monster movies on the big screen. The theaters of my youth, the good times that were had.

Finally, oiled hardwood floors. A distinct odor that assailed my little lungs as I entered the local newsstand. That accompanied by fresh newsprint smell as stacks of papers lined the counter. I loved that smell, it meant a spin around rack of comic books and standing on the lower shelf of the magazine shelving to search for monster magazines. Those monster titles usually tucked behind CRACKED, MAD, wrestling, motor car or sports magazines. But that excitement comes to me with that oiled hardwood floor smell.

The aroma of monsters, memories and our lives.

Ron – I really appreciate you sending these each week. I have a lot of fond memories of growing up in a small town in Louisiana, riding my bike around town with my buddies, looking forward to the new issue of FM at the drug store. Watching monster movies on the 3:30 Dialing for Dollars Movie on channel 3 out of Shreveport after school. Aurora models, 8mm Castle shorts. Late 60s, early 70s. Thinking about those times always make me smile.

Thanks for helping to keep those memories alive for me and I am sure, for many others….

-Tim Bruce

Hey Ron,

Enjoyed your recollection of childhood memories being triggered by a smell. I couldn’t agree more of how a certain smell can bring about a memory of a special time or place. As a kid in the sixties, we didn’t have comic book stores where I grew up but we did have old bookstores and a cool “corner store”. Anytime I catch the aroma of old books and magazines, it brings me back to a time when I explored that old bookstore searching for monster treasures. The old corner store carried candy, comics and magazines which was paradise to a monster kid. The smell of its old wood floors, rows of candy and racks of monster magazines made that mile bike ride worth the trip.

I can think of a few other wonderful smells that can bring out the kid in me. A kid couldn’t build his Aurora model kits without Testors Plastic Cement, or what we called it, airplane glue. Such a strong, but still a wonderful odor (in moderation). I also built little monsters as a small tyke out of Play-Doh. Nothing better for a youngster than opening up a new can of Play-Doh and taking a big whiff. Just don’t eat it! I also collected trading cards and baseball cards. The ones that came with the stick of rock hard pink bubble gum were the best. That sweet smell of gum and cards brings a smile to my face even now. Even though you had to crunch that gum for a minute to soften it up, it still smelled wonderful.

One last smell that can make me nostalgic is popcorn. In the late sixties and early seventies we didn’t have a microwave to make a bag of popcorn, we relied on Jiffy Pop popcorn. So often when I smell popcorn today, I think of my mother shaking what looked like an aluminum foil frying pan over a burner on the stove. She would shake it over the burner while the corn kernels would make a rattling sound and then slowly start popping as they heated up. The tin foil cover expanded until it looked like it was going to pop! Then that incredible smell filled the room and we all devoured every bit of it. Simple times and simple smells, but certainly great memories.

Take care and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone this October at Bash!

Dave Heywood, New Port Richey, FL

Don't forget the smell of Testor's glue...

-Kevin Browne, Fountain Valley, CA

Ya, got "Prince" plastic weld in a tube...Ya better better let it OUT!! Ah yes, the smell of glue and this one is still pliable from my father's model building days!!

Thanks Ron "the memories man"

Truly, Kent Daluga. Illinois.

Now shock stocked! It's a new double feature....crystal clear, stunning film transfers. Unbelievable detail for both of these 1950s monster matinee classics:

THE GIANT CLAW (1957)/THE WEREWOLF (1956) - Blu-Ray
THE GIANT CLAW (1957)Stars Jeff Morrow and Mara Corday. A giant turkey vulture from outer space decides to take a bite out of the big apple. Played very seriously by all the cast members, who must have been horrified hen the saw the special effects! Why the monster is as big as a "battleship!" THE WEREWOLF (1956) Stars Steven Rich and Don Megowan. A man is kidnapped by wacko scientists whom experiment on him. Thanks to being a human guinea pig he is turned into a scientifically generated werewolf. He suffers the torments of the damned just as distant cousin Larry Talbot did. Region 0, plays in US players!
