Oh, the simple joys of childhood.
This was one of the albums I had as a kid–and it was so much fun.

Though it had a premiere on January 21, Charlie Chaplin’s The Kid hit theaters on this day, in 1921.
It starred Chaplin–who wrote, produced, and edited the film, as well. It was also Chaplin’s first feature-length film as director.
J. Fred Muggs–a chimpanzee, dressed in diapers–became the mascot for the Today Show, on this day in 1953.
James Joyce was born on this day, in 1882.
And his door-stopping novel, Ulysses, was published (in a single book form)–on this day, in 1922. It was originally serialized in the magazine, The Little Review.
“I Want to Hold Your Hand” became the first #1 hit for The Beatles–on this this day, in 1964.
The Green Hornet Radio Show was first broadcast on this day–in 1936.
The world is crrrrraaazzy.
As a result, I’ve made my humor book–The Little Things DO Suck!–only 99c for awhile. Maybe it can help ease some of the anxiety many of us are feeling these days.
It is available on a bunch of ebook seller websites. Just click on the annoyed cat below.
