The "Found Footage Festival" will be here next month, and I have to see it! Home movies, cable access weirdness, training videos...cheap entertainment at its finest!


And some more strangeness:
- I found a Wikipedia entry on SORAS (Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome). I had no idea this was a widely-noticed phenomenon, but my mom did mention once that a Guiding Light character born around the same time as me had three ex-wives by the time I finished high school...

This made me curious about plot holes in general, so I did some searching and found "8 Classic Movies That Got Away with Gaping Plot Holes". This page points out something so blaringly obvious that I instantly felt stupid for not noticing it ages ago: How did journalists know that Charles Foster Kane's last word was "Rosebud"?! He was alone when he whispered it! Doy!

Yup, on Guiding Light, Alan Michael Spaulding was born 1 1/2 yrs after you were. He disappeared from the show for a few years and came back as a 20-something(you were 8). By the time you reached high school, he had had 3 wives and was the head of a multi-national corporation.

You are such a slow starter compared to Alan Michael. WHERE did we go wrong? *sigh*

Well, I had the last laugh...he's probably in a retirement village watching an 87-year-old majorette's routine in the annual talent show right now. ;D

The funniest one mentioned on Wikipedia was a girl who was sent to boarding school and came back 10years older than her older brother, who hadn't aged at all.
