Out of the Blue

I want to take this moment to wish Frans a very happy birthday, as I break with an unfortunate tradition and remember to do this on his actual birthday, rather than a day or two later. This gives me the opportunity to point out that Frans has remained vital to the operation of this site, serving as system administrator and tech guru, even though he also plies his trade elsewhere full-time. So, hearty huzza and kudos to our old friend, without whom you would not be reading these words! Happy Birthday Frans!

On a less significant note (for this site, at least), nin points out today is David Bowie's birthday, as he turns a startling 66, celebrating with new music that looks back at his experimental days with Eno in Berlin in the 1970s.

R.I.P.: ‘Snakes on a Plane’ director David R. Ellis dies at 60.
