Not a whole lot to report other than the usual today. Had to run a few errands this morning, and that's the reason for this lateness of this post. It isn't every December morning that we get some great weather, so you have to get while the getting's good, as they say, but I did want to pop in here for a few moments to give you the daily lowdown. There are a lot of great little blurbs up there in the Daily Citation Page, and I suspect you'll find something worth celebrating all of its own as well. I checked my archives, and I do have quite a bit more to add, but we'll see if I can get around to that this afternoon. Have a few other items I needed to get to, so my time here might be brief.
Perhaps the biggest pure SciFi anniversary today is, likely, that involving the theatrical launch of the 1978 incarnation of Invasion Of The Body Snatchers. Now, it may lack some of the nuance of the original, but what it's missing there is definitely recouped in slimy creepiness. I remember rewatching that one last year -- I was provided a great new disc via a distributor -- and it was quite solid. I'd forgotten how many great stars actually made up that cast, so that was a great re-discovery all on its own. Donald Sutherland. Jeff Goldblum. Leonard Nimoy. Wow. Quite a line-up, and it remains an entertaining conspiracy yarn decades later. So, yes, I give that one a thumbs up. While it may not be a holiday classic, it's definitely worth your time.
Still, I'll let all of you get yourselves over to the business of the day. Here's what you're really waiting for, and I aim to please:
As always, thanks for reading ... thanks for sharing ... thanks for being a fan ... and live long and prosper!
