Today’s Monday meme is brought to you by HotDudi, over at Happy Vibes, who tagged me with this meme.

Rules: You go to Wikipedia, type in your birthday (month and day) & you list 3 events, 2 births, 1 holiday, and tag 5 friends.

Easy enough, here we go:

Events

1956 – Elvis Presley sings “Heartbreak Hotel” on the Milton Berle Show, with an estimated 25% of the United States population viewing. — I, too, ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog.

1974 – The Super Outbreak occurs, with 148 tornadoes affecting 13 U.S. states and 1 Canadian province, the biggest tornado outbreak in recorded history. The death toll is 315, with nearly 5,500 injured.
— FEAR MY WRATH, MORTALS!

1996 – Suspected “Unabomber” Theodore Kaczynski is arrested at his Montana cabin.
— The man just wanted to be away from people. I can dig that.

Births

1783 – Washington Irving, American author (d. 1859) — Wrote The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. I write this blog, and will one day be a legend. There is something there, I think.

1942 – Wayne Newton, American singer — Haha. Wayne Newton.

1968 – Sebastian Bach, Canadian musician (Skid Row) — My crime is time, and it’s 18 and life to go.

Holiday

Sizdah be dar (Outdoor thirteen). In Iran, people play jokes on each other on April 3, the thirteenth day of the Persian calendar new year (Norooz). — Fitting.

Since all my interweb friends have been tagged but four, I’m gonna hit:

Ace — cause he digs memes I think.
Fnord — because he only updates when someone dies.
Mitch — because he needs to update.
Aric — because I’m curious to see his answers.

With a bonus of LFH — because that sonovabitch hasn’t updated in forever.

  • Ace

    Interesting fact about Sebastian Bach:

    He has a sister who’s an actress, Dylan Bierk (that’s the family’s real last name) – she was in “Jason X” playing one of the Marines (the blonde girl with attitude).

    Not a real stretch, one sibling a musician, the other an actress, right?

    Know what the third one does?

    Zac Bierk is a (former) NHL goaltender. Still kicking around the minors somewhere.
