Happy Birthday Week

Well, its birthday week in July. My dear Cass had her official B-Day on Sunday (the 6th) and I gots mine goin on today, July the of 9...th. Its kinda fun having our tanjobi's so close, we usually end up just taking a lil trip or celebrating the same day.
I am so grateful for my dear wifey, and I'm glad she was borned. I will let her tell ya about her glorious day in her blog (if she decides to so do.) I still have one more small surprise for her though that should be on its way...(SSSHHH!!!)

I turn 26 today. That's almost 30. That makes me a "non-traditional" student at school.
1982....
- Technology took off with the first home computers and IBM's PC-DOS version 1.1. I think people got smarter because I was born.
- A young freshman gaurd at North Carolina named Michael Jordan hit a game winning shot with 15 seconds left to win the NCAA championship. Basketball players got better because I was born.
- Another Michael released his sophmore album called Thriller, (one of the greatest albums EVA'!)which currently holds the record for most copies sold. Music sold more cuz I was born.
- The year holds a tie for most represented year in the American Film Institute's list of top 100 movies with three (E.T., Blade Runner, Tootsie). Great movies came out cuz I was born.
Basically, I caused these things. And gas was 91 cents a gallon... That's right .91!

More facts:
Number one song day I was born: Human League's "Don't You Want Me"
Celebrities born same year: Leanne Rimes, Jodie Sweetin (Full House), Jessica Biel (!), Kirsten Dunst, Brad Renfro, Seth Rogen, Kelly Clarkson, Prince William, Devon Aoki (rawr!).
Born same DAY: My favorite actor Tom Hanks, from one of my fav tv shows Fred Savage, singer of one of my fav American bands Jack White, my favorite probably-killed-his-wife-athlete O.J. Simpson, favorite probably-killer-her-husband singer Courtney Love.

Check out these old school adds:


So check that out..."Video Discs?" it'll never catch on. And yes, that is ole Bill Shat pushin the Commodore and some space heaters. Who else would be ideal for the "futuristic" 80's than Captain Kirk himself?

Anyways, that's all of that. But I have been doing a LOT of sketching lately, and I shall post some o' dat. Gotta go eat me some Circus Peanuts.
