Shameless Plug Saturday: SpazzMaster

Hey, did you ever want to see Creature from the Black Lagoon turned into a second-rate musical? No. No you haven’t. Nobody ever did. And yet Universal Studios Hollywood made it into one anyway—and unsurprisingly, it only lasted nine months.

You can see him unleash his impotent fan boy rage in the following review/rant of the show (Part 1 and Part 2):

This video is actually part of his Universal Studios Hollywood retrospective, where he covers the history of the movie studio turned theme park from its early days with the studio tours to its current incarnation as a second-rate Disney park.

You can watch the entirety of the retrospective on YouTube, Geekvision, and his website. Also check those sites out for other neat reviews from one of the more prominent member of Some Jerk With A Camera’s theme park review gang.
