5 March 2013


Birthdays
Jake Lloyd b. 1989
Jolene Blalock b. 1975
Adriana Barraza b. 1956

Yes, the kid who played Darth Vader when his only super power was a nearly inhuman power to annoy is now 24.

Ms. Blalock played the Vulcan from Enterprise, the Star Trek vehicle that made me decide I was under no obligation to watch Star Trek vehicles any more.  It also had the absolute worst theme song of any TV shows or movies and the second place finisher isn't even close.

Sorry, none of this is her fault. Many happy returns, Ms. Blalock.



Prediction: 1978: Delos David Harriman buys the moon

Predictor: Robert A. Heinlein, from The Man Who Sold The Moon, published 1951

Reality: Here is Heinlein writing about his two favorite things, space exploration and naked capitalistic greed. It turns out that in the real world, these are not two great tastes that go great together.

We are more than sixty years past his publication date and no one has figured out the profit generating enterprise that can only be done in outer space.

Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE! Wednesday is John Elfreth Watkins Day and he foresees the future of photography. I've said it before, I'll say it again, for a guy from 1900 he was really good at this stuff.

 Join us then... IN THE FUTURE!

    And he never wore a plaid jacket in front of flowered-wallpaper wall.

    1. The most we can say is he never had his picture taken in such a ridiculous circumstance.
