Good lord, Tony! That shot of Jor-El in his reflective pajamas rocketed me back in time to 1978 when the first Superman film came out. I was attending community college by day and managing a 1107-seat movie theater in Calumet City by night.

I knew from the very first day it began playing that the movie was going to have legs and make a ton of money. I knew this because once each performance started up, there were very few people who popped out into the lobby for a bathroom break or popcorn fix. People stayed glued in their seats during the whole film and didn't want to miss a thing. Plus, after each performance was over, almost everyone filing out of the theater had a goofy grin on their face.

It's astonishing to think that it was almost thirty years ago. We are so very, very old. Sigh... But I guess it could be worse. A dog could have bitten our face off.

I've read that the face transplant woman is sad that she doesn't have enough control over her new face to smile--yet she was somehow able to go back to her two-pack a day cigarette habit.

Fred, I'm gonna make a suit just like Jor-Els' out of Reynolds Wrap and tape. I'll make the bis "S" on my chest out of meatsnacks of some sort and taunt junkyard dogs in French and see what happens.
Could be fun?
Hart...did you get my list of pages? Better hurry before I become a statistic (Meatsnack+Junkyard Dog+French Taunts≠Healthy Living.

Kids don't always have potatoes to run home to here, sometimes they're carrots or cabbages. But if I make fun of kids, then the whole town will know and I'll be publicly stoned, as in stones being thrown at me, though the other option is tempting....

see you August???

So what's the word, Tony. Have you seen Supes yet? You gotta love his boots.

Tony Akins!

When are you going on tour? I will be back from the 4th to the 14th. I want to get pizza with you at that place in Wicker Park where we first met or thai food. You know, when you thought I was insane? Oh I miss Thai food......

Now you're certain that I'm insane at least.
