29 December 2013

Birthdays
Jude Law b. 1972 (Hugo, Repo Men, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortuante Events, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, A.I., eXistenZ, Gattaca)
Leonor Varela b. 1972 (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Blade II, Stargate:Atlantis)
Patrick Fischler b. 1969 (Grimm, Lost, Idiocracy, Star Trek: Enterprise, Angel, Charmed)
Andy Wachowski b. 1967 (director, The Matrix, V for Vendetta, Speed Racer, Cloud Atlas)
Dave McKean b. 1963 (artist, Sandman, Coraline, MirrorMask)
M.H. b. 1955 (blogger)
Jon Voight b. 1938 (Dracula: The Dark Prince, National Treasure, Transformers, Jack and the Beanstalk: The Real Story, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Anaconda)
Barbara Steele b. 1937 (Dark Shadows[TV], Piranha, She Beast, Castle of Blood, Nightmare Castle, Castle of Blood, The Ghost, Pit and the Pendulum, Black Sunday)

I was a little surprised at how much of Jude Law's career has been in genre films and considered putting him in the Picture Slot, but instead you are looking at a picture of the 1960s scream queen Barbara Steele.

Many happy returns of the day to all mentioned.

Movies released
Twelve Monkeys released, 1995
 
 
Prediction: Starting In 1996, a pandemic virus is released that forces the survivors to live underground.

Predictor: Twelve Monkeys released 29 December 1995

Reality: Like the plot of The Terminator, one man is sent back to the past to avoid an apocalypse. Since The Terminator was made in the 1980s, the great fear was nuclear war, but in Twelve Monkeys, made in the 1990s, the threat was some biological terror escaping from a lab.

The reality of time travel is that it's very tough to accomplish and if it did work, it would take huge amounts of energy. You have to wonder how people living in a post-apocalyptic hellhole could pull it off.

Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!

Yet another prediction from a 1990s movie, this one about what will happen in Los Angeles in the last days of 1999.

Join us then... IN THE FUTURE!

    1. I mentioned myself, mathematician style. If you refer to one of your own theorems in a symposium, you are supposed to only given your initials, not your full name. Hence the blogger born in 1955.

    2. TDISF is a symposium? Can I get credit? At least continuing Ed?

    Silly. By using 'borrowed' intellectual property. From an architect, no less.

  3. Feliz cumpleaños, old friend.

    That list of Jude Law genre flicks surprised me, too, until I thought about them some more. While a few of the movies on the list have Big Shit Blowing Up™, none has it on the scale of a summer blockbuster (or, for that matter, Peter Jackson's LOTR movies).
