16 April 2013


Birthdays
Sean Maher b. 1975
Jay O. Sanders b. 1953

Mr. Maher's best known role in genre is as Simon Tam on Firefly. He is also cast in Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing, which will be released in late June. Mr. Sanders has a long career, his best known work in genre films being Green Lantern and The Day After Tomorrow. Many happy returns to both.

Films released
Kick-Ass, released 2010



Prediction: The cult of the phony in art will disappear. So-called "modern art" will be discussed only by psychiatrists.

Predictor: Robert A. Heinlein in 1950


Reality: Yesterday, I wrote that I'd try to dig up an accurate prediction by Heinlein.

Well... I tried. I have some more stuff of his in the book Expanded Universe that I haven't completely researched yet, but as of now, everything else I have of his is dead flat wrong.

To say something kind about Grumpy Old Bob, he was generally an optimist. He has many predictions that things he didn't like very much would go away in the future, and modern art and psychiatry are just two of them.

Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!
 

Wednesday is John Elfreth Watkins Day, or at least will be until the middle of this year. As much as I love him, tomorrow's prediction falls as flat as Ridiculous Bob did today. 
 

Join us then... IN THE FUTURE!
