Happy Birthday, James Dean

When I was an adolescent, I took a lot of pride in telling my friends that I was born on the same day as Elvis Presley and David Bowie. Then I met my best friend and she retorted that she was born on the same day as James Dean.

It was the only time I’ve ever felt a tinge of birthday jealousy.

Happy birthday to both of them. Today would have been Mr. Dean’s 78th birthday.

    he looks just like James Franco, crazy

  3. I’ve always thought the story of James Dean’s haunted or cursed Porsche Spyder would make a great script for a horror flick à la ‘Christine.’ Seemingly, the car continued to kill and maim long after J.D. met his untimely end.

  5. Better to Burn Out than Fade Away(?)
    I don’t know – I’m still trying to figure that one out.
    Some days it resonates with me – others it sounds like a bunch of Poppycock.
