Birthday Trifecta – 09-02-08

Now The WO can’t be responsible for announcing every birthday that goes by, or we’d be a blog of complete nonsense. Today is special however, and we see an occurrence of a WO Birthday Trifecta.

Today marks the 30th anniversary of Dawn of the Dead. Although not released until later in the US, Romero’s shopping mall zombie fest was released in Italy on September 2nd, 1978. Besides being an awesome movie, the remake showed us all that Sarah Polley could be hot running around barefoot from the undead. No disrespect to Gaylen Ross whatsoever. So congrats on the birthday Dawn of the Dead.

Also turning one year older today is Über-MILF Salma Hayek. 42 years old and still hot. God bless you, Santanico Pandemonium. You are still one of the hottest Muses out there (Kevin Smith’s Dogma reference for the uneducated in fine cinema).

Last but not least is a personal favorite of the WO’s own Buford. Johnny Utah aka Keanu Reeves turns 44 today. Love him or hate him, Keanu is pop-culture royalty. Ted “Theodore” Logan has had a long luxurious career. Youngblood, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Point Break, Speed, The Replacements, The Matrix, and the list goes on and on. Thomas Anderson will also play the role of Klaatu in the certain-to-be-awful remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still. The WO gives you props Shane Falco. After all, “Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory... lasts forever.”

Happy Birthday to you all.

The WO.
