Road Trip Wednesday #69: Imagine That…

Posted on March 2nd, 2011 by Anna in Books

This Week’s Topic:
Invent your own mythological creature!

Song of the Week:
One-Eyed One-Horned Flying Purple People Eater

I have to say, I LOVE the song of the week! It’s one of my faves, as well as the movie that was based on the song. The movie “The Purple People Eater” came out in the 80′s: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0095930/ And there are some pretty popular oldies singers in the movie too! Check it out! I know it’s kinda cheezy, but hey, it’s got fantastic music, car chases, and purple monsters who want to sing in a rock ‘n roll band!

As for my own mythological creature, I think I’d have to go with my shape shifter character, who has large white feathered, angelic wings, which are bullet proof. So, he’s more human than creature, and hardly compares to Purple, but he could still become a myth legend very easily! Sadly, I can’t as of yet, point to a book and say you can read about him there. He’s still living in my head for the moment. But he is dying  to get out someday soon.

So, tell us about YOUR mythical creature! Post it to our comments page and let’s see those cool characters!

You can hop from destination to destination, from their blog, and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.

But, why not do the same thing on our blog every week? I’ll post their question and you can put your answers in our comments section, or on your own blog and link back to it in our comments (and theirs too, if you’d like, because I’m sure they’d enjoy reading your answers!)
