I almost missed that today’s Edgar Rice Burroughs‘ birthday. He would’ve been 133.
Today would’ve been Herman Melville’s 189th birthday.
Guess who turns 23 today?
Happy Birthday, Miss Swan! Hope you get to take the day off to just pamper yourself and do your toes.
Guess who’s 199th birthday it would’ve been today?
Happy Birthday, Edgar!
Happy Hobbit Day!
And it’s also my dad’s birthday, but he’s considerably younger.
Happy Birthday, Dad!
I won’t have time to post for real today, but it’s Jesse James’ birthday and I couldn’t let that go without mentioning.
Happy 160th Birthday, you old coot.
Mary Shelley was born 210 years ago today. I’ll always love her for creating one of the most complex heroes in literature.
There’s a heartbreaking line from Kenneth Branagh’s Frankenstein that sums the Creature up beautifully and perfectly. I don’t have a copy of the novel with me, and it’s been a while since I’ve read it, but if this line isn’t there verbatim, the feeling behind it certainly is.
“I do know that for the sympathy of one living being, I would make peace with all. I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe. If I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other.”
Happy Birthday, Mary.
MW Kaluta is not at all someone I’ve recently discovered. I don’t remember where I first saw him, but it was a long time ago. I’m thinking it was a Tarzan illustration. Maybe for this.
Anyway, Saturday was his birthday, the news of which led me to his website. Even if you already know his stuff, the site’s worth checking out for all the art he has posted. Especially the commissions.
