Happy birthday to Mr. Martin the Good Man. Even though he's wrong about the general worth of Star Wars. ;-)

Ned Raggett, Saturday, 8 June 2002 00:00 (twenty-two years ago) link

Wow, birthday fest on ILE. Have a good one Martin.

Anna, Saturday, 8 June 2002 00:00 (twenty-two years ago) link

Thanks for the good wishes. I am going out shortly for an evening with some old friends.

Someone who believes in that astrology* nonsense should explain why ILE and Mark S and a few others have birthdays at this time. Right in the middle of Gemini, more or less - is that significant? Does ILE have birth date characteristics? Was it created as a birthday gift for Mark?

*At work I often deliberately mix up astronomy and astrology because one of my colleagues is an astronomer, but I will resist that here. People here just think I'm stupid when I do things like that.

Martin Skidmore, Saturday, 8 June 2002 00:00 (twenty-two years ago) link

There seem to be alot of birthdays in March and April.

Martin's parents get busy to The Fall? Well-uh HAPPY BIRTHDAY-UH MARTIN-UH!

Brian MacDonald, Monday, 10 June 2002 00:00 (twenty-two years ago) link

Now we know whose parents get busy in the fall, heh heh heh...

You'll have to find them first - I was adopted. Total knowledge about my biological parents: she was an unmarried student nurse, he was a married surgeon.

Martin Skidmore, Monday, 10 June 2002 00:00 (twenty-two years ago) link

Does your birthday celebrate the day you were born or the day you were adopted?

Dan Perry, Monday, 10 June 2002 00:00 (twenty-two years ago) link

'Birth'day contains a clue to that. I don't even know the day I was adopted. Sometime in the July, I believe.

Was thinking about him the other week.

Was reading and chuckling at some early Krazy Kat Sundays earlier - the introduction to which I have him to thank for.

Martin's birthday. Still missing him. Can hear his voice in my head right now.

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 8 June 2022 11:13 (two years ago) link

That voice, by the way, can be found here:

mark s, Wednesday, 8 June 2022 13:18 (two years ago) link

yes :)

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 8 June 2022 13:28 (two years ago) link

Oh I'm glad that recording is still in circulation.

For all the time I knew Martin, I wasn't really into Science Fiction, so rarely talked with him about it. But I was lucky enough to inherit part of his SF book collection, and in the years since his death have made good progress reading those, plus lots more SF. And almost always, I wish I could talk to Martin about what I've just read. That's just one of the many things I miss.

Ward Fowler, Wednesday, 8 June 2022 14:12 (two years ago) link

Truly a good fellow. Grateful to have stayed with him that one time, and truly a remarkable collection of many things he had, an ultimate library.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 8 June 2022 16:17 (two years ago) link
