I idolized Forrest J. Ackerman, who died today. When I was a kid in the 1960's, I wanted to be just like him when I grew up. I couldn't have been more than 4 or 5 when I read my first issue of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine and I was irrevocably changed, forever. His magazine led me to see nearly every Universal monster movie and many from other companies. It was as a result of his efforts that I love monster, science fiction and horror movies so much to this day. I always wanted to live in the Ackermansion, although I had never been there...after all, according to legend, it was chock full of monster movie memorabilia found no where else! This is truly the end of an era. RIP 4e!
