No no! It’s not my birthday today. But you probably were aware of this already; as I did celebrate it with drum rolls and fanfares last month, when hitting the big four-o. So I guess that one was hard pressed to miss? But to get back on track, I’ve recently turned into quite a Facebook geek, where you (among lots of stuff - most of it both stupid and pointless to be honest) get reminders on your friends’ birthdays. Friends should probably be “friends”, as several of them aren’t exactly the ones you’d invite over for tea or ask to help babysitting your children, since you’ve never met them face-to-face. So friends on a more superficial level or parts of my (blogger-)network would perhaps be the most accurate description. But in Facebook terms they ARE friends, and today happens to be the birthday of these two friends; the talented lads Jens Lekman and Rasmus Fynbo. Hopefully the first doesn’t require further introduction. If so, shame on you! The latter is probably not as well known, but releases his music under the alias Mushi, which I’ve featured a few times before in the blog. So no news on either really, just a perfect opportunity sending happy birthday wishes to the both of them!
