A Moment of Discovery: NC

Because I couldn't sleep and had little energy I clicked around. Went here for a laugh and discovered this. Now just how awesome is that? Cage your queue? Adding every single Nic Cage movie to your Netflix list instantly? Popped into my head because Über -Nicholas Cage fan, novelist, and Plots with Guns editor Anthony Neil Smith apparently celebrated his birthday yesterday. Happy Birthday, Neil. May good health and fortune always find you and yours.
