14 June 2013
Daryl Sabara b. 1992 (Spy Kids, John Carter)
Iain Glen b. 1961 (Resident Evil, Game of Thrones, Lara Croft)
Glen is one of those good/lucky British actors who has just kept working and working. I first noticed him in a couple of underrated non-genre movies from 1990, Mountains of the Moon and Rosencrantz & Guilderstern Are Dead.
Many happy returns to both of these fine fellows.
X-Men released, 2001
In the year 2000!
Prediction: Fashionable people will travel in wood and glass submarines to view the wonderful variety of marine creatures.
Predictor: Postcards produced by Hildebrands' German Chocolate in the early 1900s
Reality: Submarines tend to be metal for a reason. Being completely water tight is not optional.
Still, the German chocolate postcards are among the favorite things I found doing the research for this blog, a close second behind my man crush John Elfreth Watkins. I love how many of their predictions are about the wonderful things people will be able to do in their leisure time in the future.
Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!
The first prediction from the fiction of James Blish.
Join us then... IN THE FUTURE!
