Foreigner affairs

I recently had an event in my life — the kind in which people may give you birthday presents. [Pause for applause] A family member with the best of intentions asked me for a few suggestions — a book, DVD, CD. That kind of thing. So I came up with a short list. On that list: Amos Poe's "The Foreigner," complete with some great shots of the EV via 1978. (Alex recently wrote about this film...) And on this glorious day, I opened the package. And....



Well, it's no "Half Past Dead" — but what is?

Happy Birthday, Grieve!

If your birthday is today, you share it with Richard Hell (and Kelly Ripa, w00t).

If your birthday was yesterday, you share it with my cat. :D

Happy Birthday, dude, fellow Libran (mine is tomorrow). I'm buying dinner at any ramen joint of your choice, then rounds of drinks at Superdive. Then head to Bowery Wine Bar, then at Le Souk, and then a PinkBerry and Butter Lane to top the night off!

for now, here's a blog present

And, it's Tiffany's birthday today, too. I think she's alone now.

Thanks for the 26th b-day wishes! I need to have everyone over to watch The Foreigner! Seagal's spray-on hair is particularly good!
