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.
Happy birthday Joco!
I love the Chiron Beta Prime video, it's very well done.
Molly's video is perhaps the most adorable thing I have seen today. And I'm the father of a one-year-old. So Molly, kudos to you.
Happy (belated) birthday, Jonathan!
Apparently Molly has also had a birthday recently. Happy (belated) birthday, Molly!
I didn't even know it was your birthday -- many happies! :D
I daresay the Chiron Beta Prime video is giving the Charlie Brown Christmas movie a run for it's money...
*sings* AAAAAAAAND you smell like one too!!
Happy Birthday, John. Mine was Saturday, too!
37? In a row?
Happy Birthday! The Atlanta show was fantastic, can't wait for the next one!
Im from April...8 months own-aaaaaaaaaaaage!!!
Happy birthday, JoCo!
Yay you survived to 37! Although you don't look a day over 25 :)
Happy belated b-day JoCo.
Hey you're finally 37, I beat you to your birthday by three months (Like I've been doing for the past 37 years, evidently). Even still, you're talented and famous and I'm not. ;)
Happy Birthday, JoCo! You know, 37 may be the new 36, but since 40 is the new 30, that means you'll be getting *younger* for the next three years. Good Job!
On my 37th birthday I realized I was turning 37 not 38. The whole year before I had thought I was older.
Again, Happy Birthday!
Hey! So, I'm a bit late, but I've been working on a video project for JoCo's birthday - finished last night and there are 5 videos of people ballroom dancing to different JoCo songs up on youtube. Will be mailing a fancy dvd copy to you, Jonathan, soon!
Here's Dance, Soterios Johnson, Dance:

Welcome to Club 37, JoCo! On your birthday, I introduced a whole new victim^H^H^H^H^Hfan to you music.
I remember 37. A grand time. Less back aches, better vision. Ahhh. Yeah, so, I didn't get the memo, didn't know you were putting another mark on the wall. So happy B-Day.
And yeah, Molly, ain't she the bomb! :)
Happy belated birthday, JC! Great videos too. I gotta say, I love the harmony part on Chiron Beta Prime, it has a knack for getting stuck in my head. :)
Happy B day JoCo!!! I'm trying my best to spread awareness in PA through my online cyber school.
P.S. If I win a chess tournament in my school, i get an Ipod so then I can buy all your songs ^-^
37? In a row?
Cheers to you Johnathan, and kudos to Molly. Too funny.
Just so you know, JoCo, I requested a song of yours to be played at Trivia this week in Harvard Sq, and lo and behold, Code Monkey came through in the 3rd round. Boston loves all 37 years of you!
Happy Birthday! I loved the video's! Molly's was hilarious. I want to e-mail the Chiron Beta Prime Vid to all my friends! Only they would understand!!!

What a great way to start the morning! Well done, Molly, Spiff and Jeremsoft. I hardly ever grin that broadly before the first cup of coffee is gone. To echo, Manstraw's point, enjoy 37, Joco. Those are the wonder years before the eyebrows go Andy Rooney on you.
Hope you had an awesome birthday..... and You rock :) Keep it up..

Maybe it would be easier to do it with that sampler do-hicky you seem to be using nowadays...
Now I want to be a french zombie for next year's Zombie Walk!
Hey, happy birthday! Looks like my blog entry got sucked up as a comment. Sorry about that! At any rate, hope you had a great day!
Wow, big boy turned 37?
I hear in the U.S. of A, you can go in bars without a parent at 37.
Happy belated birthday! I'm so glad it was a good one.

I like the developing Wolverine/Rogue dynamic between Coulton and Molly...
MOLLY: When you play Mr. Fancy Pants.. Does it always hurt?
JC: Every time...
We need 4 (well, now 3) more people to comment here! We're so close to having 37 comments! NO WIRE HANGERS!
I must say, 1970 was a good year. The Unix epoch always made so much *sense* to me!
