27 sighting roundup

Hi's been a while since we checked our email. Here's a roundup of sightings since the last time we posted:

The 27 Club movie
from reader Lady Spinning

A book, The 27s: The Greatest Myth of Rock 'n Roll, from reader Josh Hunter

Reader Gordon Griffin sent these, which I did know about, but neglected to post--
  • The movie Children of Men takes place in the year 2027.
  • The opening line of Slither is "A whipporwill files about 27 miles per hour."
  • In the movie Hot Fuzz (2007), at 30:50 into the movie, a cop says "27." as he's measuring the speed of cars.
  • He also mentioned the movie 27 Dresses, which I can't believe neither of us posted about!
Our friend Novac of The Smarmy Carny, mentions that he finally got around to watching the movie The Number 23. While Jim Carrey's character tries to convince his wife about the
number 23, she retorts with, "It could work with 27 or 150! You could
do the same thing!" Also in the movie, a hotel clerk first offers the main character room number 27 before he insists on room 23.

Whew! I apologize if any of these are repeats...
