NEW STUFF AT MONSTER CAFE!

Just to let the whole blogging universe that I ain't dead yet...
We had some new stuff done for Monster Cafe to bring in summer.  Still working with the crappy camera...
 Got the guy in Love at First Bite's autograph.  I dare say his name is George...Also the crew of Seinfeld.
Where would I be without Clara Peller.  Where's the Beef?  Had to have her autograph next to the kitchen!
 Bad shot above...
 But we had new drawings done by Ray behind the bar on the terraza.
 I think they came out good.
 Ray is so talented!
The mutant looks just a little off but hey...
You may recognize the new sign outside.  It is my homage to that classic Monster Mash record from my youth.  God I miss the seventies!
 A little painting outside our unisex bathroom on the terraza.
Of course had to label it BATHROOM...
 Then Ray surprised me.  He painted a jack daniels bottle with the four monsters on it.  I stuck a fake plant on top and wala...It adds something to the reception area.
 Bride and Franky...Love it.
Wolfman and Mummy on the other two sides.
Last but not least another tribute to a record from my youth.  This is our banner to hire workers here.  That Dracula, Wolfman, Frankenstein record is a childhood favorite.  I have got to get it again one day.

All in all I am well pleased.  We also fixed 7 tables that were about to fall apart on the  terraza.

SKULL CANYON

YEAH,  I NEVER HAD THE TIM MEE BATTLE MOUNTAIN AS A KID...

I HAD SOMETHING WEIRD BUT STILL COOL!  AND AN AWESOME MOUNTAIN IN ITSELF!

FINALLY AFTER ALL THESE YEARS!  THE EVEL KNEVIL SKULL CANYON!!!!

WAS I A FAN OF KNEVIL WHEN I WAS YOUNG?  NO!  I HAVE NO IDEA WHY MY FATHER BOUGHT ME THIS AS A KID...PERHAPS I LOVED THE YETI MONSTER....

I USED TO TAPE THE BOULDERS TO THE CEILING PRETENDING THE MILLENIUM FALCON WAS IN THE ASTEROID BELT.

SO GREAT TO HAVE THIS VINTAGE DOODAD BACK WITH ME.

I gave the box to Ray.  He wanted to cut it out and hang it on his wall.  Why not?  I never collect things on the card.

I have nothing new for awhile now as I am still dealing with the broken arm tragedy....Dealing with insurance companies is a nightmare sometimes.  Hope to be back soon.

COPIONES EN SALTILLO EN ESPANOL

Copiones en Saltillo!

Un año después de que abrimos un chico vino a mirar alrededor de la cafetería. Él nos dejó saber su esposa hizo un poco de escultura y quería saber si estábamos interesados ​​en adquirir sus servicios. Le pedimos que haga una prueba primero. Teníamos su esposa diseñar la cabeza Cíclope de forma gratuita. Si nos gustó que sería un regalo para nosotros de ellos. Y nos contratan para hacer más monstruos para nosotros. Bueno, la Cyclops regresó y yo quería algunos cambios en él. El hombre dijo que no y prefiere venderlo a nosotros por lo tanto totalmente cambiando lo que acordamos que sería libre.

Así que él se vaya. Toda mi material que le di para el busto cíclope se mantuvo por él, para no volver a mí. Eso estaba bien.

Un año más tarde este hombre y su esposa abierto Museo de la Catrina. Si, eso es correcto. Un año después. Así que para aquellos que decían que copié Catrina ... Eso sería imposible. Seguir adelante y mirar hacia arriba. Compruebe los registros del condado en cuanto a quién abrió por primera vez. Espero su disculpa ...

Pero me gusta el chico Catrina. Él se ha estado bien para mí. Sin problemas. Él pudo haber sido inspirado para hacer el museo Catrina después de ver Monster Cafe. De hecho, estoy seguro de ello. Y eso está bien. Le tengo a causas ajenas. Sin embargo, estos próximos personas es una cosa totalmente diferente.


El pasado sábado 2 chicas llegaron preguntando por el Museo del Horror. Pensamos que conseguimos nuestro nombre equivocado y se rió ...

Empecé a leer sobre Saltillo como hago a veces a altas horas de la noche cuando no puedo dormir. Cosas que están pasando en nuestra ciudad, etc.

Me encontré con este ...
http://www.eldiariodecoahuila.com.mx/notas/2014/10/17/abre-puertas-museo-horror-460986.asp

Um ... ¿QUÉ? Un museo del horror?!?! En Saltillo? Hmmm ... ¿Se abren ante mí? Porque seguramente no me gustaría copiar a alguien que había hecho algo antes que yo ...

Um ... que abrieron en 2014 ... Así que sí ... He estado aquí 6 años antes de ellos ... Bueno, al menos no me copian pintando murales en sus paredes de monstruos ...

Oh um .... lo hicieron .... Gee me pregunto de dónde sacaron esa idea?

Oh .... debe haber sido de mí ....

Bueno ... al menos no hicieron ningún esculturas de monstruos como yo lo hice ....


Oh espera .....

Por ahí página dice que también hacer excursiones de ella .... Gee me pregunto dónde se robaron la idea correspondiente?


Oh, espera .... oh sí ... que se nos hacen una gira que lo hacemos para todos los nuevos clientes desde que abrimos ..... en 2008 ....

En su página se dice que muestran las películas de monstruos ....

Gee ... Me pregunto donde que um ... idea original fue birlado de? Sí este es el café Monster Saltillo terraza donde uh ... las películas de monstruos espectáculo cada noche ...

Me estoy quedando sin cosas ....
bueno, al menos no lo hacen anuncios como hacemos con los monstruos.


Ver cómo enfriar la nuestra es? Seguramente no copiar que ...

Oh ... espera .... que hicieron.

Bueno, al menos deben haber elegido un lugar muy lejos de nosotros para que la gente no se confunden entre el 2 de nosotros ¿no?

Oh ... de acuerdo a los mapas de google que está a 8 minutos a pie de los Estados Unidos ...

DE VERAS? Me refiero a realmente?

DUDE ... ELLOS TOTALMENTE COPIARSE MONSTER CAFE SALTILLO! Supongo que no tenía una vena creativa SU CUERPO ENTERO! Hicieron de todo menos en el nombre MISMOS MONSTER CAFE SALTILLO PARTE 2 !!!!

AY Carumba!

Yo podría perdonar EL INDIVIDUO MUSEO DE KATRINA ya que no era EXACTAMENTE LOS MONSTRUOS PERO ESTO? VAMOS! Lo descarado ¿TIENE QUE SER?

Estoy contento ELLOS NO TIENEN SU LUGAR CERCA un McDonalds! QUIEN SABE lo que les han copiado?

TI podría haber parecía algo ARRIBA!

NO HE ESTADO EN EL MUSEO CON TODO COMO yo acabo de enterar de esto esta noche pero no creo que lo haga. Yo ni siquiera podía soportar ver TI.

TIENEN CASI 9.000 FANS Y SIDO EN FACEBOOK 6 MESES. CAFE MONSTER HA ESTADO EN FACEBOOK 5 AÑOS Y SOLO TIENE 7000. CÓMO ES ESO POSIBLE? Me parece que contrataron un servicio y mayoría de los aficionados son falsos. NO HAY MANERA EN EL INFIERNO 9000 pueblo lo vio en apenas 6 meses. Vea lo que sucede es cuando alguien ABRE UN LUGAR QUE CONSIGA TODOS SUS AMIGOS QUE PERSONALMENTE conocerlos a gustar su página ... ENTONCES cambian su nombre al restaurante o razón social y WHAMMO! FANS instante. Es lo que pasó aquí.

HABÍA HECHO NUNCA CAFE MONSTER ESTOS SE ARRASTRA sería, nunca tuvo las agallas para hacer ellos mismos TI. Yo podría entender de TI en una gran ciudad como Nueva York con millones de personas PERO SALTILLO tiene sólo 700.000! QUE DEFINITIVAMENTE SABER SOBRE CAFE DEL MONSTRUO Y no tuvo reparos COPIA MI IDEA.

¿QUÉ SIGUE COPIA? MI MENÚ? Ughh ,,,,

La gente dice que es un museo y no es un restaurante y, por tanto, totalmente diferente. Siendo que los trucos SON LA MISMA NO ES DIFERENTE. Robaron mi idea. Para ponerlo en SALTILLO DONDE MI LUGAR, ES VERDADERAMENTE insípido.

Dicen que no es muy diferente, ya que incluyen la brujería y los tableros de Ouija. Bueno, eso es como tener dos panqueques. UNO ES NORMAL. El otro tiene salsa de arándanos EN ELLA. No importa qué, los dos son panqueques TODAVÍA. Así que sólo porque Agregaron COSAS NO TENEMOS no disminuye QUE robó mi CONCEPTO.
Como he dicho antes ... imitación es la forma más sincera de adulación PERO AHORA NO apetece. UN POCO siente como VIOLACIîN ANAL.

COPIONES IN SALTILLO!

A year after we first opened a guy came in to look around the cafe.  He let us know his wife did some sculpting and wanted to know if we were interested in acquiring her services.  We asked him to do a test run first.  We had his wife design the Cyclops head for free.  If we liked it it would be a gift to us from them.  And we would hire them to make more monsters for us.  Well the Cyclops came back and I wanted some changes to it.  The man said no and would rather sell it to us thus totally changing what we agreed upon that it would be free.

So he leaves.  All my material that I gave him for the cyclops bust was kept by him, never to return to me.  That was fine.

A year later this man and his wife open Museo de la Catrina.  Yeah that is right.  A year later.  So for the ones that said I copied Catrina...That would be impossible.  Go ahead and look it up.  Check the county records as to who opened first.  I await your apology...

But I like the Catrina guy.  He is been ok to me.  No problem.  He may have been inspired to do the Catrina museum after seeing Monster Cafe.  In fact, I am sure of it.  And that is ok.  I hold him at  no fault.  However these next people is a different thing altogether.

Last Saturday 2 girls came in asking for the Museo del Horror.  We thought they got our name wrong and laughed it off...

I started reading about Saltillo as I do sometimes late at night when I cannot sleep.  Stuff going on in our city etc.

I came across this...
http://www.eldiariodecoahuila.com.mx/notas/2014/10/17/abre-puertas-museo-horror-460986.asp

Um...WHAT?  A Horror musuem?!?!  In Saltillo?  Hmmm...Did they open before me?  Because I surely would not want to copy someone that had done something before me...

Um...they opened in 2014...So yeah...I have been here 6 years before them...Well at least they did not copy me by painting murals on their walls of monsters...
Oh um....they did....Gee I wonder where they got that idea from?
Oh....must have been from me....

Well...at least they did not do any sculptures of any monsters like I did....

Oh wait.....

On there page it says they also do tours of it....Gee I wonder where they stole that idea from?
Oh wait....oh yeah...that is us doing a tour that we do for all new customers since we opened.....in 2008....

On their page it says they show monster movies....
Gee...I wonder where that um...original idea was swiped from?  Yeah this is the Monster cafe Saltillo terraza where we uh...show monster movies every night...

I am running out of things....
well, at least they don't do annoucements like we do featuring the monsters.

See how cool ours is?  Surely they didn't copy that...
Oh...wait....they did.

Well at LEAST they must have picked a location far away from us so people wouldn't be confused between the 2 of us right?

Oh...according to google maps it is 8 minutes WALKING DISTANCE FROM US...

REALLY?  I MEAN REALLY?

DUDE...THEY TOTALLY COPIED MONSTER CAFE SALTILLO!   I GUESS THEY DIDN'T HAVE A CREATIVE BONE IN THEIR WHOLE BODY!  THEY DID EVERYTHING BUT NAME THEMSELVES MONSTER CAFE SALTILLO PART 2!!!!

AY CARUMBA!

I COULD FORGIVE THE MUSEO DE KATRINA GUY AS IT WAS NOT EXACTLY MONSTERS BUT THIS?  COME ON! HOW BLATANT DO YOU HAVE TO BE?

I AM JUST GLAD THEY DIDN'T HAVE THEIR PLACE NEAR A MCDONALDS!  WHO KNOWS WHAT THEY WOULD HAVE COPIED?
IT MIGHT'VE LOOKED LIKE SOMETHING ABOVE!

I HAVEN'T BEEN IN THE MUSEUM YET AS I JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT THIS TONIGHT BUT I DON'T THINK I WILL.  I COULD NOT EVEN STAND TO LOOK AT IT.

THEY HAVE ALMOST 9,000 FANS AND BEEN ON FACEBOOK 6 MONTHS.  MONSTER CAFE HAS BEEN ON FACEBOOK 5 YEARS AND ONLY HAVE 7,000.  HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?  METHINKS THEY HIRED A SERVICE AND MOST OF THE FANS ARE FAKE.  THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL 9,000 PEOPLE SAW IT IN BARELY 6 MONTHS.  SEE WHAT HAPPENS IS WHEN SOMEONE OPENS A PLACE THEY GET ALL OF THEIR FRIENDS THAT PERSONALLY KNOW THEM TO LIKE THEIR PAGE...THEN THEY CHANGE THEIR NAME TO THE RESTAURANT OR BUSINESS NAME AND WHAMMO!  INSTANT FANS.  THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED HERE.

HAD I NEVER DONE MONSTER CAFE THESE CREEPS WOULD OF NEVER HAD THE GUTS TO DO IT THEMSELVES.  I COULD POSSIBLY UNDERSTAND IT IN A BIG CITY LIKE NEW YORK WITH MILLIONS OF PEOPLE BUT SALTILLO ONLY HAS 700,000!  THEY DEFINITLY KNOW ABOUT MONSTER CAFE AND HAD NO QUALMS COPYING MY IDEA.

WHAT NEXT WILLTHEY COPY?  MY MENU?  UGHH,,,,

LIKE I SAID BEFORE...IMITATION IS THE SINCEREST FORM OF FLATTERY BUT RIGHT NOW IT DOESN'T FEEL LIKE IT.  KINDA FEELS LIKE ANAL RAPE.

SECOND RATE IMPOSTERS...

EDIT=YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE THE RACISM GOING ON IN SALTILLO.  I LOOKED AT THEIR FACEBOOK PAGE.  TOO MANY MENTIONS OF PINCHE GRINGO ETC.  WHICH MEANS IN ENGLISH F-ING AMERICAN.  CHECK OUT THIS...

CHECK OUT THIS ARACELY VALLE RODRIGUEZ PERSON!  SHE IS A DEFINITE RACIST!  LOOK AT THE WAY SHE TALKS ABOUT AMERICANS.  THERE ARE OTHERS TOO.
IF YOU WANT TO SEE SOME REAL RACISM, CHECK OUT THE COMMENTS ON MUSEO DEL HORROR'S FACEBOOK PAGE. NEVER HAVE I SEEN THE WORD GRINGO BE USED WITH SUCH DISDAIN AS I HAVE SEEN HERE TODAY. NOW I KNOW WHAT A BLACK MAN FEELS LIKE IN AMERICA. I NEVER THOUGHT MEXICO COULD BE RACIST.
AND ALL OF THE RACIST COMMENTS HAVE THE PERSONAL APPROVAL OF THE MUSEO DEL HORROR. HE LIKED ALL OF THEM WITH A THUMB'S UP.  THAT IS TERRIBLE THAT COMPANY SUPPORTING RACISM LIKE THAT.

WOW...CHECK OUT HUGO FIGUEROA!  HE SAYS SEND SOMEONE TO DO SOMETHING BAD TO US!  THAT IS A TERRORIST THREAT!  IF THESE ARE THE KIND OF PEOPLE THAT FREQUENT THIS MUSEUM, I DO NOT WANT THEM HERE.

 YET MORE RACISM EXHIBITED.
 RACISM RUN WILD

MORE RACISM...OLE ELENA DE LA ROSA SAYS I AM ACTING SUPERIOR...UM HOW?  WHEN?  PLEASE LET ME KNOW...THEN SHE GOES AND LEAVES A NEGATIVE REVIEW OF MONSTER CAFE DESPITE NEVER BEING HERE.  WHO IS THE RACIST SUPERIOR HERE?  HER.
