Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars by David Bowie

40 years ago on this day,  June 6, 1972, David Bowie released his epic album “Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars.”

The following 11 songs have rocked all of our worlds:

Five Years / Soul Love / Moonage Daydream / Starman / It Ain’t Easy / Lady Stardust / Star / Hang onto Yourself / Ziggy Stardust / Suffragette City / Rock and Roll Suicide.

Perfect album.  Many happy returns Ziggy!  Thanks for making all of our ears so happy for the last 40 years and beyond!

Happy 40th birthday to actor Corey Feldman.  My brain seems to remember Corey best wearing his “Purple Rain” T-shirt in the movie “The Goonies.”  I also remember that Corey Feldman and Corey Haim used to host an annual Toys For Tots event in Los Angeles and many celebrities got together each year to raise money for a really great cause.  Happy birthday Corey!

Also born today: comedian Will Ferrell, actress Barbara Stanwyck, dancers Michael Flatley and Ginger Rogers.

Happy birthday to Julian Assange, a true hero!  Julian Assange is high on my list of people I’d like to meet.  By starting the site WikiLeaks, he’s helped expose so many evil corporations (including governments) for the shitty things they do in order to make money.  We all knew this stuff went on behind the scenes, but WikiLeaks exposes these fuckers in broad day light.  SUCH AN INSPIRATION!  If you ask me what’s going to happen over the next several years, I think the corporate world will crash completely.  As soon as the masses get together and realize that 99% of us are slaves to a very small 1%, we’ll turn the tables on those MFs.  It’s going to be a beautiful day.  But as you know, the masses can be asses, so it takes a leader to emerge.  Will that be you?

Also born today: writer Franz Kafka, actor Tom Cruise and talk show host Montel Williams.

Ever met 2Pac?  I have.  Many times.  Before he was allegedly killed, he was a super cool guy.  He’s 40 years old today and he’s probably out there somewhere reading this blog and having a laugh, so happy birthday 2Pac!

Also born on this day:  comedian Stan Laurel of Laurel and Hardy.  I can confirm that he is definitely dead.

Happy birthday to Mark Wahlberg.  I know that he dropped the word “Marky” from his name because he ditched his music career and is now a serious actor.  All I know is when I see the photos from his early modeling career, I certainly get good vibrations!

Also born today – jazz musician Kenny G.  G power!
