Steve Godzilla

Special Guest

Steve Godzilla;

Godzilla in Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla, 1974

There is no bigger star of the silver screen than Godzilla, and InConJunction is excited to again have him return as co-host of opening ceremonies. Well, sort of...

Few people actually know that the same actor has played Godzilla for 47 over years including all 26 movies and both animated television shows. It would also surprise most people to learn that Godzilla isn't really as tall as he is in the movies where he easily towers over most skyscrapers. No in reality, Godzilla is actually a 63-year-old, 13-inch tall actor from Toledo, Ohio who bears a very striking resemblance to a lizard. When he showed up 2 years ago, we were just as surprised as you are.

At out 2001 convention, both Godzilla and Rob Pyatt served as co-hosts for the opening ceremony and, although suffering from a Geritol hangover, Godzilla's dry sense of humor proved to be a memorable welcome for both our guests and our attendees. It was kind of like having a little, green, cranky Garrison Keeler open the show.

Unfortunately, things got ugly at the opening ceremonies of the next convention. The 2002 toastmaster, Dr. Richard Farlow, had invited a punk T-Rex with a bad attitude and small "brain stem" to co-host with him and the extinct MC took the chance to insult, belittle, mock, and blaspheme Godzilla all throughout the event. Needless to say, the Big G was not pleased. The T-Rex was scheduled to lead a panel discussion the next day on the pros and cons of evolution, but never showed up and hasn't been heard from again. Now I know what you are thinking and you'd be wrong. Godzilla has disavowed in court any knowledge of the whereabouts of that dippy dino. Besides, he's got a concrete alibi in my book since he testified that he spent that entire evening with Martha Stewart. Who could lie about something like that?

It seemed only fair then to invite Godzilla back to co-host another opening ceremony and defend his honor. Unfortunately because of his age, The G-Man will only be appearing on Friday night. But if you listen closely, you'll be able to hear his distinctive cry all throughout the convention.

Go, Go, Godzilla!
