Don’t you think that the phrase “Creature comforts” is an odd one?
For me it is the word “Creature” which I feel is synonymous with terrible or at least sinister. I mean the TRex could have been named Sinister Creature and still drummed up fear and fascination.We have ‚Creature Feature movies containing our dread monsters that disturb our beauty sleeps. Monsters to call from every crevice to blame or torment our lives.
I recall “The Creature from the Black Lagoon” “The Creature was my Teacher” (I just made that last one up, I hope?). Anyway, you get the picture and with this in mind can a creature’s comforts be truly comparable to our own? If this is so then there is only one inevitable conclusion we are all part of a lousy awful second rate movie. Or we are dread creatures and bizarre comforts are our creature cravings. Perhaps even, we are the creatures of the universe from which other less than creature types draw their nightmares?
