That’s right, it’s the first day of July. Usually I don’t get to do much on my birthday around here but Canada likes me so much they made it A holiday! I love those guys. Since I’ve made it to 35 alive, I decided to throw up some random charts that might not be entirely understood or popular. There are a handful of you out there that will love them with me and I am cool with that. I will explain each novelty as I go, for those in the dark.
Obviously some of these have had some computer generated help, but it’s my birthday and I can do what I want.
BABACHU! This is a man who’s portrait can be found all over the world in any medium from oil paint to bronze, but you most likely have never seen him, unless that is you have ever visited Columbus, especially durring festival season. He was a great nude model from my college days, interesting features and the ability to hold a pose like a statue, and on the streets he’s got all the right moves and the best Jazz Hands out there! I always run into him at the strangest times. Once It was 5:30am the middle of downtown, no one around and I saw him blocks away and thought I was hallucinating. When he got close we stopped and had a nice chat about how we hadn’t seen each other in awhile. He’s magic I say.
This first chart is from an ancient poster for his dance class that my friend Lisa has some how kept in almost mint condition. It looks a lot darker than it actually is.

If you don’t know who Dean Winchester is yet, then you probably haven’t visited this site much. He kills demons, vampires, and all kinds of mooks. He also happens to be a smart ass. One time they caught him and threw him in jail for murder, so he threw out his best Blue Steal for the mugshot. It’s a classic Supernatural moment.

This leads us to the last and best section of my Birthday Love extravaganza, the Patrick Gilmore section. If you don’t already know about Patrick you should check out my Patrick Gilmore page, it will fill you in on all his actor type stuff. When in doubt I make charts of this goofy guy or tweet him strange messages. What can I say, he gives me lots to work with.

This is the face I imagine he makes after every take.
This last Patrick chart I am bombarding you with is my favorite pic of him these days. He took it at an award show I think. One of these days I am going to spend an eternity stitching this.

That’s the end of my mixed bag of odd little loves. If you made it this far I applaud you and thank you for sharing in my wacky world. It is the best present ever to be able to introduce you to these people and help you stitch those things you never thought you wanted to.
