Happy Birthday to my brother, Joe--
- He who introduced me to Ben Folds LIVE and "Several Species of Small Furry Animals in a Cave with a Pic", by Pink Floyd... the one who taught me that dad is great, he gives us chocolate cake... He who had the "cool attic bedroom" in our house growing up (which was really just by default because, let's face it, you were 1 brother among 5 sisters--- had the playing field been leveled, I might have been the one cool enough to score the attic bedroom). He who drove the bad-ass white mustang that was probably a royal piece of crap, but i never knew because I thought it was bad-ass. The one who introduced me to the Beastie Boys AND Wes Anderson AND Guns 'n Roses. The one who acknowledges that this blog post-- this amazing blog post--- is actually my gift to you. I made you famous. You're welcome.
