These were stowed away in a random folder buried in my backup files. Apparently Past Chris had decided to write an article about them, but left no clues as to his thought process. I have to assume that the previous me was waiting for inspiration that never came. Well, Past Chris, your wait is over. Let’s get these published.
For Leonard Nimoy, on what would have been his 90th birthday.

Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don’t forget your booties ’cause it’s cold out there today. It’s cold out there every day; what is this, Miami Beach? Not hardly! And you know you can expect hazardous travel later today with that, you know, that, uh, that blizzard thing. The National Weather Service is calling for a “big blizzard thing!” Yes, they are. But you know, there’s another reason why today is especially exciting. The big question on everybody’s lips, their chapped lips: do ya think Phil is gonna come out and see his shadow? Punxsutawney Phil! That’s right, woodchuck-chuckers, it’s Groundhog Day! And to celebrate, The Sci-Fi Guys give you our SALUTE TO TIME LOOPS!Continue reading ““It’s Groundhog Day!””
Hamilton Mitchell, August 13, 1957 – January 31, 2021
I met Hamilton and his wife Robbie a few years ago in LA. Mandy McMillian had promised to take me out to the best little Italian joint in Studio City, and she absolutely delivered. Little did I know that joining us that night would be two of the most charming people I would ever have the pleasure of meeting. Over the course of a single dinner they made me feel like we’d known each other for years. Ham’s warmth and humor will resonate long after his passing. I’m very lucky to have known him.
