Several people have e-mailed me, and several websites are reporting that today is Mr. Stephin Merritt's birthday. Sadly, this is erroneous information that has somehow spread all over the internet. That Wikipedia has more power than I can imagine. In a little less than a month, I will update the blog to wish Mr. Merritt a happy birthday on his proper birthday.
Also, expect a review of Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and The Magnetic Fields in the coming days, kiddos. I love all of you!
