Rob and Monica are a fun couple I know from the FaceBook. They enjoy first wave British Punk Rock, shopping for vintage housewares and collecting mid-Century design. For Rob’s birthday this past week, Monica presented her true love with the dessert pictured above, which Rob described as a “Jello Cake with Clowns.”

“It really was not cake,” Monica clarified, “it was just Jello with Redi Whip on top! I used a vintage red Pyrex bowl and vintage clowns (Rob likes clowns) and a vintage birthday cake sign.” Who would not want a girlfriend who would make them such a fun and personalized dessert? Monica further explained that she made the Jello because Rob already had cake at work, and then they had more cake the next day at her sisters. And, as they say, there is always room for Jello.

Happy Birthday, Eddie Izzard!

Eddie Izzard

British Comedian/Actor, Marathon Runner and Action Transvestite Eddie Izzard was born on this day, February 7th, in 1962. That makes him exactly one day younger than Axl Rose! Just take a look at the two of them and see who is better preserved at this still relatively young age! I just saw Eddie perform here in NYC on Monday of this week while car shopping and he was completely hilarious! Happy Birthday, Eddie!

Happy Birthday, Axl Rose

Axl Rose Rock In RioRemember when we thought This Guy was the Crazy Axl Rose? Ah, memories.

William Bruce Bailey, also known as Axl Rose, celebrates his 51st Birthday today, having been born on Febrary 6th, 1962. I feel bad that Axl has lost his mind and become such a dick, but I guess we can always look back on Appetite for Destruction, which is a work of genius, and remember the good times. Happy Birthday Axl. Have some cake.
