Sunday Will Be Mine!
August 3rd @ 3:21 p.m., many years ago, I became a part of this world. For my birthday this year, I give myself Beirut’s “Elephant Gun” (reminds me of Neutral Milk Hotel), scenes and song from a film I love, “Bagdad Cafe,” Leon Katz sweetly recollecting his summer with Alice B. Toklas, a Wanda Sykes’ clip because she’s friggin’ funny, and Lewis Black because he’s nuts. Yay!
Happy Birthday, Leos!

I love that pic, you and the posse!
Happies to you.
What a wacky & wonderful array of gifts. Hope you had a great one!
The stars tell me that Louis Armstrong (August 4, 1901) was born under the sign of Amy King. Quite a capacious and creative sign, surely!
Amy, happy early b-day! I’m two days after you – Leos rock.
Happy birthday, Amy! I love Wanda Sykes. I hope you have a good one.
