You can't yadda yadda out of Wednesday

Natpe Birthday to: Clint "Make My Day"Eastwood, Colin Farrell (who is filming the new 'untitled' Woody Allen movie),and nothing comes between me and my NATPE...Mrs. Brooke Shields

Today in 1990 a small TV show, dont think anybody has heard of was debuted on NBC...its name Seinfeld?! Ok so that was a bad attempt at a joke...though I wish the show was still on (and thankfully it lives on during the lovely world of syndication and the long awaited DVD release), I cant imagine life without Seinfeld. The last episode aired May 14, 1998...WE LOVE YOU SEINFELD! Well I love you!

Whats Up Doc!

So today being Mel Blancs Birthday, have to say  a special  thank you to Mr. Blanc. Though he died in 1989, his influence is still very present today. Growing up with the Looney Tunes, watching them every Saturday morning is such a fond childhood memory, and still till this day if I see a Looney Tune on...I stop! To take it a step further if you ever get the chance to see Bugs on Broadway at the Hollywood Bowl, let me tell you its a real treat! So Happy Birthday Mr. Blanc, and Thank you for making such memorable characters come to life!
