Today is Paul McCartney’s birthday. Paul was born in 1942 and he was in Wings and that little band he started out in, The Beatles. Everything that music is today owes something to Paul and The Beatles. If you go from their first song and follow through to the end, The Beatles left a huge footprint, progressing from simplistic music with wonderful vocals to music that stands up against the best ever written. Check out the British Revolution and you’ll be sure to hear something by Sir Paul.

Carol Kane was born on this date in 1952 in Cleveland, Ohio. Carol Kane has played some of the most offbeat characters in the history of film. My personal favorite is the ghost of Christmas present in Scrooged (“Oh look, it’s a toaster.”). She has appeared in our world in Freaky Friday (TV version) and Phineas and Ferb. Let’s go to Hollywood Studios and meet Phineas and Ferb in honor of Carol.
