Many very happy birthday wishes to Damon Albarn, my #3 or #4 Man (I continuously switch him and Ewan McGregor around in the rotation), who turns 42 today. He may have lost a tooth over the years, but not an ounce of talent or, how you say, zee sexxy.

I will be spending the day listening to the wonderful new Gorillaz record, Plastic Beach, and probably every Blur record, while I wring my hands in anticipation of their documentary, No Distance Left To Run, arriving in my mailbox some time this century. (Move it, Amazon!)

I also thought I'd commemorate this day as if I were a 13-year-old girl, which is kind of how I feel every time I see a picture of the lovely Damon. So, enjoy this goofy, girly slideshow of gorgeousness through the years. (Just be glad I didn't make it pink with flying glitter-hearts.)

Note to Veggie Assassin: Before you say anything, just DON'T. It's his birthday. Be nice. Spit out that haterade.

Is there something wrong with pink flying glitter hearts??

Grant Miller said...

He's 42??? Seems like just yesterday I saw Blur when they were all like 19.

Now I feel old.

Shelly said...

LOVE the slide show. The captions are great!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

He still looks 19 though, doesn't he, Grant? Naw, that's too old ... 15.

Victoria said...

I would've appreciated the glittery hearts :)

Penny said...

ooooo He is so freaking cute!!
I am now intrigued to purchase the song you mentioned. I will download it tonight :) :)

Thanks for the suggestion. Happy Birthday to your man :)

Happy birthday Damon. Although I still haven't forgiven you for that godawful Country House song, I wish you a happy birtday. GOD YOU ARE SEXY.

Yep, still sexy even being pelted with tomatoes.

I'm sure he's happy with the choice of photo at the top :)

WWW, that's one of my favorite pics. Especially since I always hear people describe Damon as "dour" and "humorless." But he's totally not. He's quite a goofball. Yet one more thing to love.


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
