...On January 8th 1935, Elvis Presley....the king of rock and roll....was born......Happy B Day Elvis!!...his mere existence eventually proved to change the face of music.....It wasn't necessarily his songs or his performances....it wasn't what he achieved so much as how he did so....Elvis was the first big named star to bring rock music into the national spotlight...he was the first major player to open huge doors for rock as we know it today....it was bound to happen sooner or later....but he was the first....and for that I again say......Happy B Day to the KING!

...Nelson Mandela passed away today at the age of 95....and the world will most certainly miss him....Nelson Mandela was more than a leader of men....he was a living breathing representation of what one person...one soul...can accomplish given the drive and determination....he represented the good in humankind....he refused to abandon his principles regardless of the oh so expensive price tag they came with....He refused to abandon hope when absolutely no one would have blamed him for doing so...he refused to accept anything less than the change he would have such a huge part in inspiring.....he provided a voice for those who in the past had never had one....he stood tall in the presence of darkness and wickedness...and not only prevailed but fueled the fire of positive change for an ENTIRE country.....think about that for a second or two....an ENTIRE nation... and any way you slice all of that it simply comes up amazing.....rest in peace Nelson Mandela.
