On Saturday I turned 37 and boy do I feel terrific! 37 is the new 36!
I want to thank all the people who sent me nice messages, bought bananas, and paid tribute in various ways. Special thanks go out to those particularly dedicated minions who participated in this grass roots campaign to punch all media in the nuts with the fist of me. We didn’t make it to the Today Show this year, but I bet we made Ann Curry nervous, and I count that as an enormous victory.
Here are a couple of links to things that to me look suspiciously like bday tributes:
Molly of previous uke fame sent in this video of her struggling through Mr. Fancy Pants. I feel the same way when I play it, believe me.
And it wouldn’t be a birthday without a video from Spiff, this one for Chiron Beta Prime. I’m a huge fan of the “Yoink!” sound effect and have just now decided that I’m going to use it a lot more often in daily life. One bunny was harmed during the making of this film.
Even in France they celebrate my birthday, usually by making cards that have a picture of me dressed up like a French zombie mime. Here’s one of those from Jeremsoft, the translator of Re: Vos Cerveaux.
Many thanks to one and all. Onward.
