5 July 2013


Birthday
Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek) 

As much as I like to have pictures of actors in the picture slot (and let's face it, by actors I mean pretty actresses), I'm also glad to have the writers of science fiction represented. The written word is where this all starts.

Many happy returns to Mr. Moore, of course. 

In the year 2000!

Prediction: Madame at her toilette will be attended not by a ladies' maid but by clever mechanical devices designed to make her more lovely.

Predictor: A series of French postcards about the year 2000 published at the beginning of the 21st Century.

Reality: It's not realistic, but it looks a lot safer than the similar contraption designed for men.

Looking TWO WHOLE DAYS ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!

This weekend, we'll enjoy two predictions from a 1956 novel by James Blish. He's by no means perfect, but he's a damn sight better than Heinlein or Clarke.

 Join me then... IN THE FUTURE!

  1. Awww, give the postcard half a point. Ladies are, in fact, attended by cleverly designed mechanical devices in at least one respect...

    1. Dearest ZR,

      You are my most reliable commenter, but I have to say, nobody likes a smutty zombie.

    2. Aw, c'mon. It was more tasteful than the Trojan Twister commercials...
