One week ago, G-FEST was in full swing--actually, it was more than half over. Godzilla vs. Megaguirus was just beginning to screen. We had decided to stay in and watch the latest Ultraman movie on "G-TV." It had been a briskly paced, adrenaline-fueled day, as G-FEST days generally are. Those who were there are already looking back wistfully at the twentieth Godzilla get-together--and looking forward to the next. Over the next several weeks we will share our memories with you of our family's fifth journey to the heart of kaiju fandom. It more than lived up to expectations--it's not every day you get to shake hands with Godzilla, after all!
