Yes! This blog, this very blog is officially three years old today! Can I git a big YEEHA?! I SAID CAN I GET A BIG YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAAA?! WAT CENTRAL - An Existential Wasteland was officially started on July 19, 2004. HOT DIGGITY DAMN!

Well, I dunno how it even got this far, but am most pleased to have all of you around! The irony here of course is that this blog was also started on my birthday! 26 years ago (just buy into my fake age ok?) a small little adorable blond whiteboyish Latino lad was born to a very Hispanic mother in Los Angeles, CA. The horror here of course is that I am still in this plastic cesspool! ARGH! WHY GOD WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY??!!! Hey, I've made it this far right? Regardless of where I am at this stage in life, I am still alive, and that in itself is a true blessing.

I don't know if I've made it to round three of that karaoke singing contest for next Tuesday (most likely I did) but this past Tuesday night's round two was a bona fide success. There were only about 14 contestants left, and we all had to sing two songs to prove our worth. Many of us were truly on and performing at our very best, including yours truly, if I may say so myself semi-modestly. I sang Rocket Man by Elton John and My Sacrifice by Creed. There were some very nice people I'd never met who really showered me with praise for my Rocket Man rendition and I was quite flattered. They voted for me! MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

To myself, a big Happy Plopped-Out-Of-My-Mama Day, and to this blog continued success into the heights of the stratosphere for informing and documenting as much as possible on just about every topic known to humankind, with special praise often reserved for my good friends John, Paul, George, and Ringo.

And to you: the faithful reader, commenter, or casual fan, a million thanks!

God bless.

Happy 26th!
And congrats on the Karaoke. I bet you rocked this hizzouse with Rocket Man. Unfortunately, I don't like Creed, so I can't condone that! But will you please post an mp3 of your talents?
And yes, New Mexico is a very culturally rich and incredible place. I love it!

Hey I like the design/layout of your blog a lot. With the really wide sidebar. The template I use (with dotted line between sidebar and main bit) ... it took me ages to find again. But I don't even remember seeing yours up there. Did you get it specially made up for you??

Zhu said...

Three years ? Wow... I didn't know much about blogging up to last year... must be LA, so ahead of us poor Canadians !
