Howard Hughes and the Primorial Pouch

Sunny today, and it's currently 40˚F.

Yesterday, I finished the signature sheets for Dear Sweet Filthy World, and I owed Jonathan Strahan an email, so I tended to that. But not much else.

The days are bad. The nights are worse. Yet, Selwyn abides (see photo, below).

While life isn't going back to normal anytime soon, we still have to eat and rent still has to be paid, so please have a look at the current eBay auctions. Thank you.

We watched 12 Monkeys (1995). I had not seen it in many years*, and it's one of my favorite Terry Gilliam films. It surprises me that the Wikipedia article doesn't make mention of an obvious link between 12 Monkeys and M. Night Shyamalan's The Sixth Sense (1999). At one point in 12 Monkeys, James Cole (Bruce Willis) utters the chilling line, "All I see are dead people." In The Sixth Sense, Cole Sear (Haley Joel Osment) has his famous line, "I see dead people." Oh, and both movies take place in Philadelphia (though 12 Monkeys also takes place in Baltimore) Clearly, Shyamalan was nodding to Gilliam. I'd never noticed the link before last night.

    A sunny, very warm day. Our high was 83˚F, and it's still 75˚F. I went six days without leaving the house and in that time the trees have begun to…
