Dinosaurs are Sexy

Filmmaker Donald Glut loves dinosaurs. He loves his collection of dinosaur memorabilia, so he finds an online community to share it with. Donald Glut, happily, also likes to share his dinosaur collection with scantily-clad babes (somewhat NSFW)

Among Don’s many interests are paleontology (obviously), movies (especially the older horror films, Westerns, serials and film noir), science fiction and fantasy, music (playing and listening), comic books, motorcycles, reptiles, stage magic, electric trains, the Three Stooges, Jackie Gleason, old-fashioned amusement parks and side shows, partying and “holy relics."

Must be fun shopping for presents for this guy...

...scantily-clad babes.

You mean his 'Museum Guides.'

Might I suggest a few dusters and some furniture polish?

I knew I recognized that name!

Perhaps Don is best known for his novelization of the movie The Empire Strikes Back (1980), the nation’s No. 1 bestseller for almost two months, which to date (still in print) has sold over 3.5 million copies.

I was 11 years old in 1980. Each year, my extended family went on a big, group vacation with another family to Daytona Beach, Florida. There would be like 20 of us, and we would rent a bunch of adjacent rooms in the same motel every year. That year, after a long day at the beach, we went to the grocery store to get supplies for that night's group dinner. Being a terminally bookish child, I was perusing the paperbacks in the rotating wire rack in the grocery store when lo and behold I found one copy of The Empire Strikes Back novelization. I was, of course, a huge Star Wars fan and hadn't seen the movie yet because either it hadn't been released or hadn't made it to the theater of the small town where I lived. So that night, after dinner, while the rest of the extended clan was gathered in one motel room playing Rook (the card game), I was by myself in another room reading. I devoured that book in one sitting. When I got to The Big Reveal, I remember being so shocked that I actually dropped the book. I ran to the room where everyone was gathered and shouted "Darth Vader is Luke's father!" Either no one cared or no one believed me, because I did not get the earth-shattering reaction I thought I would get. My mom just told me to go back to the other room and read while they finished the game.

Story of my life.

Oh, god. I think I just looked into my own future.

"Do you want to come to my place and see my dinosaur collection?"
"How about coming back to my apartment, I've got a large dinosaur collection?"
"Well, if you've got nothing else to do, I've to an extensive collection of dinosaur memorabilia."

Nope, no matter how I try, there's no way to say this without sounding like a serial killer.

I thought that said "scantily clad babies" for some reason.

"Dinosaurs with scantily clad babes" sounds more like a tumblr meme.

At least it's not dinosaurs fucking robots.

I think it's the "dinosaur" part that gives it that creepy, obsessive edge.

I'm sure his "museum guides" make 2 to 300 dollars an hour.

"Wanna fondle my lizard while I take pictures?" ...Nope, still no good.

I found some context. This guy wrote and directed a movie fourteen years ago, which is not remotely safe for work.

Dinosaurs are sexy

"Baby," he replied, "it's also because I am sexy and loveable and smart and manly and sexy." She was nodding. He paused, looked around, and then whispered, "I put 'sexy' in twice because I'm - " " -twice as sexy" she whispered back, the two of them whispering it together. She knew that he was twice as sexy as a regular sexy man. That was probably a good thing for their relationship, he decided. Better that she know now, than be suprised down the road!

Maybe that's why some of these pictures remind me of the Rodney Alcala cold case photos.

Oh lord, I'm trying to decide what's the worst thing about 'Dinosaur Valle Girls' - the acting, the effects, of the fact that he left the Century21 office unmanned...

Pfff, you are barely trying. How about this: "Hey, how about coming back to my place. I have a huge collection of dinosaurs. That you can stand in front of in a sexy manner."

See?

I am always thrilled to find a movie that includes nudity and violence and manages to still be not even slightly titillating. Indeed, the fact that a movie such as this can evoke no reaction whatsoever makes me feel kind of good about humanity, albeit in a bad way.

When I first saw a movie with gratuitous nudity, I was both surprised and pleased to find that my only reaction was mild annoyance. I had heard adults claim this was possible, and figured this was a sign of maturity.

I have a related, though distinct, feeling when I see "Museum Guides"(sfw) Christine Nguyen and Elise Muller standing next to the black & white artwork. Sadly, what I notice is that the edge of the door is filthy. This makes no sense to me -- he's (presumably) paying real money to real models/actresses, but can't spare the minimal cost to clean the door edge? Unfortunately, noticing this doesn't suggest to me that I'm getting mature; it only suggests to me that I'm getting ~old~.

Oh come on, this is easy. I'll just modify one of your examples to show you how easy it is:

'How about coming back to my apartment, I've got a large dinosaur collection? Also I am not a serial killer.'



See?
