23 August 2013

Birthdays
Ray Park b. 1974 (X-Men, Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Heroes)
Aaron Douglas b. 1971 (Battlestar Galactica, Eureka, I, Robot)
Barbara Eden b. 1931 (I Dream of Jeannie, The Seven Faces of Dr. Lao)

Purists may complain that I Dream of Jeannie and even The Seven Faces of Dr. Lao have no place on a science fiction blog.

Personally, I hope purists like that will not notice, still too upset with yesterday's news that Ben Affleck will be Batman.

Many happy returns of the day to all our actors.


Prediction: August 23, 2000: A massive earthquake hits Southern California, turning an area from Malibu to Anaheim into an island

Predictor: Escape From L.A. released 8/9/1996

Reality: The original Escape From New York put the action sixteen years in the future, released in 1981 about the hellish days to come in 1997. This 1996 puts the bleak cityscape seventeen years in the future, but the prediction of a massive earthquake only four years forward. And of course, you need some disaster to turn L.A. into an island, or escape is not a difficult feat requiring the hiring of Snake Plissken.

Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!

What will we be wearing in the year 2000! Bold designers from 1939 show us the way.

Join us then... IN THE FUTURE!

    It better be metallic jumpsuits.

  2. The Seven Faces of Dr. Lao used to scare the hell out of me as a kid.

    I loved it.

    1. I remember seeing parts of it on cable as an adult. The thing that confused me completely as a kid was Ms. Eden getting all sexysexy when Pan played the flute. She backed herself up against a wall and started panting. I had absolutely no context for any of it.

  3. The picture you chose of Ms. Eden will also go a long way toward making the purists not notice...

    1. I like this picture because neither the cleavage or the non-existent navel distract from her gorgeous face.

      Not that I am in any way opposed to top rated cleavage or midriffs, both of which Ms. Eden possessed.

      No, not opposed. No, indeedy.

      Just wanted to make that clear.

  4. Mercutio is playing Batman in MoS Part Deux. I don't see a problem there.

    Of course, I don't see a problem with the picture, either.
