Happy birthday to the late, great Joey Ramone; born on this day in 1951. Here’s The Ramones playing at the State Theater in 1978.
Weezy and I went to her friend’s birthday party today, which was tied into Art-a-Whirl. Glad we went, plus she got to meet local Tumblr immortality, Paul from Stuff About Minneapolis and his two girls.
