Pah! Hulk had enough of puny humans wishing Harlan happy birthday on wrong day.

Day in London is now May 27th - that good enough for Hulk.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PUNY HARLAN! (though Hulk would not wish to tackle you in arm-wrestle....)

Hulk hope Susan can find big enough cake to hold 75 candles...

(Congrats, old bean - best wishes from the Brit Brothers - Rob & Paul Ewen)

Happy birthday, Harlan! (A bit early, still, but hey, it's already the 27th here on the East Coast.) And best wishes for many more.

The "Dreams" DVD is climbing the charts - as I write this, it's #5 on Amazon's list of top-selling documentaries on DVD, here: ... d_1_2_last

Also, I don't know if "ironic" is exactly the right word for this ... but given the recent discussion here about the New Yorker's rejection of our host's new story, did anyone else notice that the sole reviewer's quote on the "Dreams" DVD box - "A nasty little dream come true" - is from, yes, the New Yorker?

You told your entire story in that lovely bit of art. It's wonderful!

Now, I must take you to task a little about the Great State of Texas. Ours is the finest State in the Union. And I will explain why--

tomorrow, dear. Today is about Harlan.

Your fellow Texan who is proud of you for your artwork.

Kristian Bland's report about looking for Dreams in Texas is absolute killer! (And the fact that he thinks there are bookstores called Barnes and Nobel only adds to it.)

A fine ol' happy birthday to you Harlan!
And forgive our premature friends - we all feel you deserve more party time than just one day.

DWST is waiting for me when I get home. I already have a waiting list of people who want to rent it. Can't wait to see it myself!

With much love and best wishes to you both,

Dear Mr. Ellison,

No, couldn't wait.

My favorite lines from the original "The Producers":

"Shut up."

"No, you shut up. You are the audience. I am the author. I OUTRANK YOU!"

See yesterday's (!!) post from my doppelganger.

Many happy more.
