Madonna Polaroids by Richard Corman, 1983.

In June 1983, 24 year old Madonna was rising on the club charts with singles Everybody and Burning Up. Photographer Richard Corman captured pre-fame Madonna at home one month before the release of her debut album. At the time she was living on East 4th Street between Avenue A and B.

Which Godzilla movie do you think would be a good starting point for a person who's never seen any of the Toho films? I'm thinking about trying to get my girlfriend into Godzilla.

Excluding the 1954 original (which is a masterpiece but maybe not a great date movie), here are my picks for the best places to start: 

  • 1964′s Mothra vs. Godzilla is widely regarded as one of the best. It’s a lot of fun and it lays down the groundwork for a good portion of the franchise. If she enjoys this one, chances are she’ll enjoy all of them. 
  • 1984′s The Return of Godzilla and the subsequent Heisei films are great if you live for 80s/90s nostalgia like I do. If you’re looking for the American version, Red Menace has a great HD reconstruction of it (which is great because that version is not available for purchase)
  • Finally if you’re looking for something a bit more modern, Godzilla 2000 Millennium is the way to go. Really awesome enemy, some of the best human characters, and it gives a good overview of what the series is. 

Hope that helps! Have fun!

“The ‘Truisms’ (1977- 79) were perhaps an overly ambitious attempt to make an outline of everything that I wanted to do. I’m not sure I knew that at the time I wrote them, but that’s what I’ve come to recognize. I wanted to have almost every subject represented, almost every possible point of view, and then I had to sort out what those sentences should appear on.” - Jenny Holzer
