The King of the Dead. Still very much alive.

Today is a special day. George A Romero turns 68. Some of the first films I truly fell in love with were the crude horror films of the 1970's. Of course, the best of them all was "Dawn of the Dead". To this day, it is one of my favorite films of all time. Better than "Night of the Living Dead", "Day of the Dead" and "Land of the Dead" (though, that's not too hard to do). Romero is one of those people who I can say is responsible for me choosing the medium I did. He inspired me and motivated me to pick up a camera. So, to you Mr. Romero I wish you a very happy birthday. I hope you have many more. I also hope your next movie dosen't suck, because the last one did.
It's ok.
I still love you. A lot.

I'm just jealous.

Not to age myself...but
13 years old, Fangoria just came out, went to the midnight premier of "Dawn of the Dead." My mother wanted me to be a doctor. I wanted to be Tom Savini.

Tom Savini!
The King. I emailed him once and he wrote back.
Paging Dr. Shapland...
Has a ring to it.
