Notes from the birthday list.
1. The Picture Slot. The previous Picture Slotters were TV's Frank Conniff and Mary Shelley. Going old school the two most iconic are likely Bill Daily from I Dream of Jeannie and Fred MacMurray from the Flubber movies, but instead I went to the young end of the list with Jessica Henwick as Nymeria Sand from Game of Thrones.

'Cos she's purdy.

From the middle of the list, I could have taken Michael Chiklis from Fantastic Four, though that would have been cruel or Cameron Diaz from The Mask. I like Game of Thrones better.

2. Nepotism FTW. Max Hoffman is Dustin's kid, played a role as a child in Hook. This is nepotism plain and simple.

3. What we are missing. No Canadians, no Star Trek.

Many happy returns to all the living on the list and to the dead, thanks for all the memories.

Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!

OMNI Future Almanac, the Old Faithful of all my prediction sources, starts off another week.
Join us then... IN THE FUTURE!


  1. Am I the only one who is trying to adapt to the idea that Peggy Lipton is only two years older than Lewis Black? The one has been around since our adolesence, the other only hit prominence in this century.

    1. The beautiful women we remember from back then are preserved perfectly on film, and it's weird to think they have aged just like the rest of us. I remember freaking out a little last May seeing that Sybill Danning, who was so smoking hot in the 1970s and 1980s, is two years older than Jim Broadbent.


Traveler! Have you news... FROM THE FUTURE?
