HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME
As Nolan has alluded to, I have once again joined the sad fraternity of people who celebrate the eventual ushering in of their own demise. Yes, on January 9th I had a birthday.

The biggest deal with birthdays at this juncture of my life is that with each one i keep getting closer to 50. what used to seem a lifetime away now seems like if i don't watch out it'll be here in no time. Fortunately, and as i've said before, i can still hang my hat on the joyous reality that no matter how old i get, Nolan and Mike will always be just a tad older. And there's nothing they can do about it!!!

MASTERS OF HORROR
Forgive the blatant self-promotion, but by now you all understand that's just something that comes with the territory. I've recently reformatted my Masters of Horror site with a new menu screen as well as a brand-new issue of MOH. Articles this time around are on the truth concerning FM's return, the third installment of Dennis Daniels FM Chronicles, and Surfing the Monster Web, which will introduce you to a web site you will visit more than once if you are of the classic monster ilk.

There is also a new monster poll, and Horrorhead Fred is always available to take requests or answer questions.

Poster and Lobby card updates are coming soon, but just as I've had no time for my Rails, I've had no time for my site. What normally takes me a day to do has taken me about 3 weeks. I'm fairly certain, as always, that my editor understands. (Yepper!--N)

THE FREEZE IS ON
Knowing that a lot of you live in warmer climates, I wanted to assure you that winter has, indeed, arrived. Yesterday's high [where I live in Massachusetts] was 2 degrees, and the low was minus 9.

I believe the term Mike used to say is "colder than a witch's tit in a brass bra". Yes.

So cold that the car left outside would not start. Surprising given that it has a brand new battery. Even the car in the garage gave me trouble.

Luckily, today it's a lot warmer. A low of minus 4 with a high of 3. Oh happy day.

Till next time take care, and God bless,
Matthew
