Check out these great photos and this from the Steve Wyka collection, and these words from Steve (a Wallington, New Jersey customer):

Hi Ron,

I've had time to rest and do some painting in my apartment, spring cleaning as well and watching all sorts of monster/horror/sci-fi movies! The complete Universal Frankenstein series, Tarantula, The Deadly Mathis, Them, Invaders From Mars (the British Version) and Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959) when is that going to be released on Blu-Ray, Ron? As well as some classic Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea episodes (I actually always watch a number of episodes during my birthday month!) I turned 53 on Feb 11th.

I did complete the Invisible Man Model Kit I got from you last year (It took some time, but it is now completed.) I enclosed a couple of pictures with this e-mail! I see the Chiller Theatre Expose was moved to the first week of June, hopefully we are all back to some normalcy by then, Ron!

Two of the pictures I sent are the hallway leading to my basement apartment! The lobby card was signed by Arlene Dahl, who I met in April of 2009 at a meet and greet, when the Landmark Lowe's Jersey City Theatre, had a special showing of the aforementioned Journey to the Center of the Earth, which I just watched yesterday!

Have a good week, my friend and thank you again for including my Abbott and Costello story in the most recent issue of the Monster Bash Magazine, all my friends and family loved it!! Please stay safe and healthy, you, your family and staff!!

Warmest Regards, Steve Wyka, Wallington, NJ

Rondo Remembers: Art, Music & Monsters

It seems fairly universal that growing up liking monster movies seemed to go hand-in-hand with drawing, writing and music.

I grew up drawing dinosaurs, monsters...and even imagined making monster magazines and drawing covers....see above from when I was about eleven. Ironically I've gone on to publishing MONSTER BASH magazine and even used a Lorraine Bush painting for issue #23 that kinda mirrored that drawing from long ago.

My grandfather would let me go to work with him a lot and would give me used poster boards from signs that college kids had put up. I could draw on the back of them (which was blank) with all kinds of magic markers. On the floor, near his desk drawing. Years later, my daughter would do the same thing...drawing monsters on the floor next to me while I worked.

In my twenties and thirties I did a lot of pen-and-ink drawings and paintings of monsters (see to the left). It just seemed to be the thing I gravitated to.

I always enjoyed reading and writing. The movies would inspire me to read things like H.P. Lovecraft and Ray Bradbury. I'd write stories on torn out notebook pages and on a beloved portable typewriter I had when I was in 6th and 7th grades.

And, music seemed to always be a part of my life too. Playing my dad's oldies albums of 1950s rock and roll endlessly.

Remembering being in the barber shop, getting my hair cut when I was five or six. Looking through the comic books the barber had there for kids that waited. A Jerry Lewis comic book had a back cover ad for Aurora monster models...I was grooving on a careful examination of that when "I Want To Hold Your Hand" by The Beatles came on the barber's radio. I loved it and the barber was talking to another older customer about those long-haired guys from England that were on the Ed Sullivan TV show.

But, it's always been art, music and monsters for me. The more fellow monster movie fans I meet, the more I see this as a pattern too. It's all that pop culture wax that molded together to make us.

Hey Ron,
Loved your story of Art, Music and Monsters. I feel like I’ve experienced
the same upbringing as you ! Your magazine cover was wonderful. I would have been the 1st kid to call you, trying to win one of your prizes. And your Frankenstein painting is incredible... you should be painting the next Monster Bash cover!

Growing up, I played with plastic dinosaurs and my Palmer plastics monsters. I also played with the 1960’s GI Joes. One of them I painted green to be Frankenstein and another I wrapped in toilet paper to be a Mummy. After completing dinosaur coloring books, my parents started buying me sketchbooks. These were soon filled with monster drawings. I also made monsters from play-doh.

While I was drawing or building Aurora models in my room, I played the radio. Then one day I got a tape recorder and would wait for my favorite songs to come on so I could record them. I recall getting so frustrated if my little sister made noise while I was tape recording ! As I got older, I bought albums. Then it was music cd’s. I also became aware of artists by name, but of course I was most impressed with monster/fantasy artists like Gogos and Frazetta. As I’ve mentioned to you before, I taught high school art for 30+ years. Not only were my students exposed to classic monsters, but I played music during class which helped the kids learn of different eras and styles of music.

Now today all music is at our fingertips, which I love. I can call Creepy Classics for my “monster fix” and I’m still drawing monsters. I guess these things are burned into our memory cells forever and I couldn’t be happier. That’s why I love Monster Bash so much, because we have all found each other to share these likes and be part of one big family!

Take care and I’ll see “the family” soon at Monster Bash !!!

Dave Heywood, FL

Wow...from the heart, Dave...love it. -Ron

Hi Ron,

Once again I find myself saying “thank you.” I think I had mentioned I’m a physician in NJ, but one thing I hadn’t mentioned was that I came to be more of personal friends with a patient of mine who was unfortunately , battling cancer which until more recently had been in remission for many years. He LOVED all the old Universal Horror movies and looked forward to watching Svengoolie on Saturday evenings as his cancer returned, and he was undergoing treatment for a very long time and was physically limited a bit in what he could do. Then I had the idea to get him interested in the Monster Bash site, which he was.

As he bravely faced what he soon learned was a terminal condition, I learned I could keep up his spirits in discussing your newsletters with him. He LOVED it. And up until the weekend that we recently lost him, as recently as the the Thursday before, to keep his mind off of his condition as much as possible, I would call or text him and discuss your newsletter and he would relate to me a movie or particular monster or event in your childhood that he identified with and enjoyed talking about. And I would get him laughing and not thinking about his end which we both knew was getting closer.

And I thank you for relating all the wonderful stories of your childhood, he truly enjoyed them as much as I did and they did make him smile and reminisce about happier times. From the bottom of my heart, thank you, your newsletter added a lot of smiles and fun conversation and DISTRACTION to what was otherwise an unpleasant time. Thank you!

Chris R.

Chris, thank you for sharing that...the little extra time I spend writing about growing up with monster movies all seems very worth it after reading your words. Blessings to all. -Ron

Happy birthday John!

Hey Ron,
Here is a colored pencil drawing I did of Quasimodo. I really enjoy Charles Laughton in that role. His portrayal was excellent. Take care and see you at Monster Bash... Dave Heywood

This is it, THE book on the TWILIGHT ZONE. Get yours right now, for immediate shipping, right to your door from the Creepy Classics zone:

TWILIGHT ZONE: UNLOCKING THE DOOR - Huge Softcover Book

By Martin Grams, Jr. The definitive, massive book on the original THE TWILIGHT ZONE series. In depth review of every single episode with interviews and photos. 800 pages of a deep look at one of the greatest television shows and vision of Rod Serling. 800 pages. Reviews:

The word DEFINITIVE is not one that should be bandied about loosely or bestowed too readily on any text. However, Martin Grams Jr.'s newest television history can, without reservation, be called definitive, essential, benchmark, and all other terms that indicate no collection should be without it. --Tony Fonseca, DEAD RECKONINGS, Spring 2009

Readers who feel they've entered this dimension before, namely via Marc Scott Zicree's TWILIGHT ZONE COMPANION years ago, are in for a treat. Grams has dug further than any other researcher into this durable anthology's creation and history, a series which included among its fans novelist Ayn Rand and actress Jodie Foster. THE TWILIGHT ZONE: UNLOCKING THE DOOR TO A TELEVISION CLASSIC is a proud testament to the series's enduring appeal. --Issue #120, Filmfax Magazine

I'm blown away by the mass of data... by the attention to the smallest detail. It puts everything else written about TWILIGHT ZONE in the shade. Monumental and fascinating and hugely informative. --William F. Nolan, famous science fiction author

MONSTER BASH CONFERENCE Update

Here's our official statement on the coronavirus and Monster Bash:

While we feel there will be a calming and control by June...

MONSTER BASH is on as scheduled, regardless of sleet, hail, high winds, torrential rains, blizzard, heat wave, flu, measles, mumps, falling arches, high death toll on the highways across the nation, death by old age (a lot of our demographic is now worried about that), gout, or coronavirus.
