13 June 2013


Birthdays
Kat Dennings b. 1986 (Thor)
Chris Evans b. 1981 (Captain America, Fantastic Four, Marvel's The Avengers)
Mark Correy b. 1965 (Engineer Alex on Enterprise)
Stellan SkarsgÄrd b. 1951 (Thor, Marvel's the Avengers)
Malcolm MacDowell b. 1943 (A Clockwork Orange, Heroes, Tank Girl, Star Trek: Generations)

Kat Dennings = Cute Girl = Picture Slot today. It's hard to find pictures of her that aren't "cleavage forward", which is a shame because she has a lovely face.

Not that I am opposed to cleavage. Oh, no, indeedy.

Other than that, today is very heavily weighted towards the Marvel Universe. Many happy returns to everyone on the list.

Movies released
The Incredible Hulk released, 2008

And yet again, more Marvel Universe. It probably deserves its own label, so fairness dictates a DC Universe label as well. I'll put both of them on my "to do" list.


Prediction: In 2010, we discover life on the Jovian moon Europa.

Predictor: Arthur C. Clarke in 2010: odyssey two, published in 1982


Reality: We haven't gotten this kind of up close and personal on Europa yet, so we can't confirm or deny this. Once again, even with a lot of evidence to the contrary by 1982, sci-fi writers like Clarke are still certain space exploration is going to be as interesting to governments as it is to fanboys.

Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!

Because of pre-emptions, it's been about a month since we saw a German chocolate postcard. That oversight will be rectified tomorrow.

Join us then... IN THE FUTURE!

  1. Hey! You left Tank Girl out of Malcolm McDowell's credits. Certainly more interesting than Generations (or watching paint dry, but I repeat myself).

  2. Prof, this isn't science fiction necessarily (unless you count the idea of living through nuclear holocaust as imaginary; or if you check out the reading material in the shelter) but it is kind of awesome:

    Or, I guess it could fall into the category of 'inaccurate predictions'

  3. Ken: You're right, that was an oversight and it's been fixed.

    ZR: It's interesting and fear of nukes is definitely a topic for this blog, but it's missing the "this thing will happen by this date" template I'm so keen on.

    And damn! The Daily Mail! I quit reading HuffPo because I wanted less side boob with my actual news content. The Daily Mail is the Vapid Celebrity Motherlode!
