Jerry Garcia died on this day in 1995. Thanks buttloads to Ilse for the huge downer of reminding me of that one. But since she usually lights up my life, we'll cheerfully forgive her occasional hopeless bleak despair, and the sharing thereof.
Also: John Lennon was born on this day in 1940. I think. I can't be bothered to look it up, but Wikipedia works fine, no?
And remember: Snakes On A Plane opens August 18, only one thin week from Friday. We got motherfuckin' snakes!
