TheThunderChild writes “Steve Vertlieb, film journalist extraordinaire, is a new columnist for The Thunder Child, writing a couple of articles a month in Vertlieb’s Views. First in July is How I Met The Blob, a reminiscence of a few decades ago when he and his brother journeyed to California to meet not only Forry Ackerman for the first time, but also Wes Shank, owner of The Blob. http://thethunderchild.com/Movies/VertliebViews/Ve rtliebBlob.html is the URL. It’s perfect timing, because the Blob Fest is happening in Pennsylvania in just another week – with their annual Run Screaming Out of the Theater re-enactment.”
