King Kong is Dead

Passing through Times Square this evening I was surprised to see the remains of a gigantic gorilla. A mountainous mass of fur on the center pedestrian strip with two arms in Broadway and what I eventually figured out was King Kong’s head were strewn about the area. I imagined they were putting King Kong together until getting home and reading that today was King Kong Day.

What surprised me the most was that I walked through Times Square twice (unfortunately) this afternoon without noticing the giant gorilla or the hordes of tourists snapping pictures. I suppose it just shows what a mess of distractions that place is that one can pass by a 30 foot gorilla without notice, twice.

Also, I thought I saw Peter Jackson across the street, but it turned out to be a homeless man. I was only able to tell the difference as I approached and saw the homeless man was slightly presentable.

    Peter Jackson did lose a ton of weight due to exhaustion while filming King Kong. It’s a rarity that a filmmaker will put his heart & soul into the work he’s making. For that, I absolutely respect and adore the man while spewing hate towards punks like McG who give directors a bad name.
