We Celebrate an Influential Birthday at The Dragon Today
Or...one of my Duran boys gets another year older

It's no secret that I'm a huge Duran Duran fan. Titles and lyrics from Duran Duran songs influence some scenery and imagery in Choices Meant for Gods. After 23 years, it can't be helped. I think I've mentioned on this blog, and I know I've mentioned in interviews, that the Arcadia album, So Red the Rose, in particular, was a source of inspiration. (Ummm...the name of the Taiman estate is Hleo-Arcana...come on.) Anyway, it will come as no surprise then, that today I am in ultra-celebration mode over Roger Fabulous-Arms Taylor, the drummer for Duran Duran. It is his birthday, and I'd like to send out all those happy wishes to him. No, he won't see this, but, hey, some of his fans will. Some of them are calling me today, because, as all of you crazed Duranies know, it's what we do...

Have a great Thursday, everyone. And listen to some Duran tunes. I highly recommend the Rio album for a spring-almost-summer day like today (remember, I'm in Florida). I would also recommend the Liberty album, but Roger didn't play on that one, so, you know...

Happy Birthday, Roger, and thank you for the good imagery! (Honey, it is so good to have you back in the band...)

How perfectly timed then that I listened to a dance remix of Wild Boys last night. Ah, Duran Duran. The world would be less wonderful without you. LOL

Hey, Jamieson,
Your telephone's been ringing while you're dancing in the rain...
