HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME

32 years ago, I was born in Rockford, Illinois through circumstances far too wacky to go through. Somehow, god help me, I've avoided being killed, and I'm still here to bring the movie news and rumors to you. Woo hoo! No, no, no applause, please, just throw money. I'm just serious. >8^)

Anyway, if you have the scoop on anything related to comic book movies, TV adaptations or just want to give us a briefcase full of cash, no questions asked, drop us a line and let's coordinate. You can choose an alias if you'd like, or be mentioned by name -- we honor requests for anonymity. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is your humble scribe Hannibal Tabu saying thanks for your time and indulgence, yes, I still did my comic book reviews and "don't blame me, I'm drunk too!"
