Last year, the Picture Slot was Jennifer Lawrence from The Hunger Games. This year, following the fabulous babe theme, it's Natasha Henstridge from Species. There are certainly other iconic roles on the list from genre and I have no idea who I will use next year, except probably not Ben Affleck as Daredevil, because that would be cruel. I actually like Affleck.
Extra note from my past: I used to have a blog about the supermarket tabloid covers. The Globe gave a Brave Last Days alert for Mike Connors in 2010. Four years later, he's still here and good for him.
Also, anyone working at the Globe can go to hell.
Many happy returns to all the living on the list and to the dead, thanks for all the memories.

Prediction: Cayce predicts the Depression will last to 1934 or 1935.
Reality: Most sources say it ended in 1939 and some say it was World War II war manufacturing that finally ended it. In any case, it was still going on at the end of 1935, so another swing and a miss by Mr. Cayce.
Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!
Another prediction about the 20th Century from 1893, this time about the arts.
Yes, there will be facial hair.
