Well, it's that time of year again. Time to spread love all over the land. My lovely lady has developed a sweet Valentine's Day card for y'all based off of The Day the Earth Stood Still. This is a classic sci-fi movie that I recommend to everyone. It has many good messages, but most importantly, it lets us know that at any point we misbehave as a planet we can be annihilated by giant space robots. So spread the love, fellow humans. And remember, Klaatu barada nikto.
I would also like to point out this little diddy from The Rocky Horror Picture Show called "Science Fiction/Double Feature." My favorite version of this song is by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes - found here.
"Michael Rennie was ill
The day the earth stood still
But he told us where we stand"
[Some day I will have to write more about the time I rented The Rocky Horror Picture Show with my mom when I was about 12. We loved Tim Curry in Clue and IT, so we gave this a chance. That was an interesting afternoon. Lots of questions.]
Happy Valentine's Day!
