Dates That Really Rate: July 2nd!

In-between Midnite Monster Hops, the Phantom Creeps travel in the Bucket o'Blood throughout all of space and time! There are countless wonders to behold to inspire the young and the old: Artists, dreamers, and creators, have struggled and fought not just throughout time on your own planet, but on infinite spheres throughout the inky, infinite, blackness of space!

Earthlings: Throw out your hollow Hallmark holidays! Today is important!

As this writhing universe collectively races towards its inevitable doom, the Midnite Monster Hop marks the births & beginnings of those that really rate! Invest time and energy into the existence of Walter Potter, who was born on this date in 1835, Hannes Bok, who was born on this date in 1914, Cyril Kornbluth, who was born on this date in 1923,  the 1st World Science Fiction Convention that started on this date in 1939, and the film Big Trouble in Little China, that premiered on this date in 1986!
