Dance, Mothra, Dance!

Bryce Digdug just called me from Ibiza where he's been for a little getaway before they start shutting things down for autumn. Our little number "Mothra Remixed & Remastered" is now #1 on all the dance floors of Europe and slated for a U.S. release by this weekend. While Bryce informs me that Mothra herself cannot dance, her spirit gets those fine Mediterranean feet moving non-stop with this new hit.

Look for it here in a few days.

We also hope to soon release a third Mothra collaboration in which Bryce and I have a high minded interview about the meaning and moral import of Mothra, perhaps the most enduring feminist insect icon of all time. She destroyed to make the world safer. Boy do we need her now!

I guess I never realized Mothra was female. Maybe it's time to watch it again? .... 30-something years later...

She's very female. I always get an estrogen rush just watching her, equal to eating 12 Luna bars in one sitting.

I MUST learn more about your Mothra dance mix and your involvement therein!

Didn't Godzilla defeat Mothra, just for the record?

Oh, and if Mothra had been a guy (kusala) it would have been Mothro or something.

CB - In my book Mothra rules forever whether in this world or the world of E.S.P. She just let Godzilla think he won because he was a big macho lizard.

I never thought I'd be hearing about España and Mothra in a blog post.

And I bet Bryce Digdug's got a big giant smile on his face sa usual in Ibiza,Canarias.

This makes my heartworms smile.

What do you mean, Mothra can't dance? She can hover and swoop with all the grace of Ginger Rogers.

And oh, I get it...Mothra, Luna Bars...luna moth...hawhawhaw! Too bad they don't come in wasabi flavor. Or wool.

WAT - Mothra's also huge in Mykonos. Island cultures in particular relate to her.

Gavin - Your heartworms will soon be taking wing.

Jill - As you might imagine, many feminist groups and women's products approach Mothra daily for endorsements. She's VERY choosy these days after a horrible experience she had with RAID back in the 1970s. Entomologists around the world dropped their jaw on that one.

CB: I get all gender-confused by Japanese names, so Mothra didn't set off any particularly feminine vibe to me.

Hiroko... Katsuhisa... Mothra... so tiresome to try to keep them straight.

Kusala - It's worth watching again since Mothra and Godzilla sort of represent the battle of the sexes on a larger canvas. Oddly, many Kenyan names sound Japanese, but with the ending vowels reversed. I have known Kenyan women named Aoko and Wariko.
