Happy Birthday, Harlan! (From a long-ago poster kind of lurking these days.)

Also, I caught Dreams With Sharp Teeth on Sundance the other night and I almost lost it laughing at Neil Gaiman's impersonation of a Harlan Ellison phone message.

Name: Joseph J. Finn Source: unca20071007.htm I wasn't exactly big on the first two episodes of MoSF, but I do have to say that watching Judy Davis is never boring.

Fax, those pictures in your gallery are indeed quite lovely. I'm especially quite taken with the rose photo on the last page.

And it is nice to have a good civil group here. Nice and calm and intelligible.

Cheers,
Joseph

STEVE BARBER:

Thanks for posting those pictures; it's great to finalyl see what some of you look like! And I'm not much of a car guy, but that Packard just gave me enough lust to get me 10 Hail Marys if I ever went to confession.
