Random Factoid #438

It’s about time.

I was wondering how long it would take Hollywood to discover the GOLDMINE that is the 1900 Galveston hurricane.  It can function as both a period piece and a disaster movie!  There would be beautiful sets and homes, and then the hurricane would come and the visual effects would give us the joy of watching them all turn into piles of wood.  (Not to mention that Houston became Texas’ big city as a result of the hurricane.  Had Galveston remained intact, it would have become the commercial power of the state.)

Although I don’t live in Galveston, per se, I’m definitely excited to watch it get destroyed.  I’m definitely a child of the disaster movie generation since there is this latent desire in my soul to watch my hometown of Houston to get pummeled in true cinematic fashion.  Is that natural?  Probably not.

Anybody else want to see their hometown get destroyed?
