Fuck. July 7, 1974, at some point I was brought into this world. I don't even know when, exactly, as both of my parents are dead. Nixon was resigning the day I was born.
So, in order the things that resonated with me, by age, or an approximation of so:
Abbot & Costello
Men Without Hats
The Vilolent Femmes
Lawrence Welk (sadly)
Jan Magnus Pauley (My father was born on the same day as Prince and he called him a Spic)
Echo Hill Camp
Carlos T. Blackburn
Caring about kids, before you have kids
cats, especially Mocha and Commanche
Murph, the dog.
Pittsburgh and Zombies
The West Coast
Stranger Than Paradise
