Fanuary – Day 21

Hard to believe how everything is truly connected. One man had a dream of making movies while another had ambitions of revolutionizing the car industry. Thirty one years ago today the first DeLorean DMC-12 rolled off the production line. Four years later Robert Zemeckis installed a flux capacitor and that vehicle took us all back in time as the time machine in Back to the Future. A combination of activity, timing, and patience forever altered the landscape of cinema while the car maker forever altered the landscape of undercover drug busts. I’m a fan of Huey Lewis and the News. Bet you wish you had a time machine to get these past few minutes back.

In this digital age I must confess I’m a fan of iTunes University. Offering top tier courses, educators, and experts on every subject matter the world can muster, it is a valuable resource for all who choose to utilize it’s wealth of knowledge. It’s a branch of the Mac brand that certainly would make Steve Jobs proud. I highly recommend the demolition curriculum Angry Birds.

Miracles. They’re everywhere. Hope you’re fan enough to witness one. Ps. Miracle Whip doesn’t qualify couch potato.

I Have a Dream

Obviously we’re all fans. However, when was the last time you listened to the entire speech as though you were in the crowd hearing this remarkable rhetoric for the first time? Goose bumps baby! Goose bumps. Still get a chill down my spine when he crescendos to the final “Thank God Almighty, we are free at last.”  Thank you Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Rick Baker. Whether you realize it or not you’re probably a fan. And if you say you’re not he will create a monster to eat your face. Trust me. Be a fan.

Fan of magical timing! I know that “magical timing” is completely in perspective to each individual. Somebody’s poor timing often results in someone else’s perfect timing and vice-versa. For instance, the chap who invented the beautiful Astronomical Clock did so in a time that those protecting the “interests” of Prague BLINDED HIM so he couldn’t repeat his work in other cities. “Nice clock.” Stab – Stab. Ironically, poor timing to be a master clock maker. The magical part is that when it was working properly over 600 years ago it probably would have predicted you would be reading this right now. I’d say that’s double golden magical timing.

Happy 60th Anniversary to the TODAY SHOW! I must admit I am a big fan. You are a welcome addition to anyone’s morning routine. Sure we’ve had our stretches where we don’t see each other, but we always know the other is there… like herpes. I digress. Your show is a time capsule of America and the American spirit. Your hosts and correspondents are friends and family to millions. And your legacy will live on as long as the machine or zombie apocalypse don’t wipe us all out. The real hero to everyone however, and the true recipient of my fan tip of the cap is to the always present and eerily stoic, Linny! He’s the fan always leaning on the railing outside in Rockefeller Plaza! We love him and look forward to another 60 years together provided he’s not a brain hungry zombie by then.
