Remember yesterday, when I said I wouldn't be doing Star Wars-related entries every single day on account of other occasions? Well, today's one of those occasions. Bear with me, all you people who have no reason to get excited about May 2.
What's so special about May 2? Well, aside from the fact that it only comes once a year, it's also my friend Paul in NJ's birthday. We met in college and have been friends for about half my life now; it's thanks to him that I know half the cool bands I know. From Questions of the Day ("if you could construct a supergroup, who would be in it?") to dating advice ("let her know that your stud name is Rrrrrick"), he's offered me everything a good friend should, and I'll always be glad we met.
Paul once told me his favorite two songs will always be his favorite two songs, for sentiment as much as quality. There weren't many good versions of number 1 ("Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" by Paul McCartney) on YouTube, so here's a passable number 2. Many happy returns, big guy.
