Notes from the birthday list.
1. The Picture Slot. In previous years, the Picture Slot went to Edward Furlong and Wes Craven. Several good candidates presented themselves today, including Bruce Patrick and Sam Worthington, but I decided to go fabulous and choose Joanna Cassidy from Blade Runner. This is as good a time as any to remind folks that we are only four years away from sex robots according to this film, and while two out of three sex robots want to kill you, early adopters of technology should expect some glitches along the way. As a friend of mine from the old days of programming said, the first Christians get the best lions.
2. Spot the Canadian! Just one today, James Preston Rogers.
3. Not really nepotism. Hallie Kate Eisenberg is the baby sister of Jesse Eisenberg. I only count siblings in very rare circumstances
4. MST3K. I know Attack of the Giant Leeches and Night of the Blood Beast got the Best Brains treatment, not sure about anything else.
5. Wait... he's alive? I didn't know Nehemiah Persoff was still with us. Special birthday best wishes to you, sir.
Many happy returns to all the living on the list and to the dead, thanks for all the memories.
