# CLI…”Composing” a Birthday List…UPDATED…

On this date, January 27th, it has been brought to my attention that two people that I know personally (one through my job and the other through my hobby) share a birthday today.  With that having been said, I am using this space to acknowledge their joyous celebrations (Happy birthday to Veronica and Lulu {used to own Lulu’s in Port Jefferson, which I’ve written about here} and many happy more) and to give them the honor of reading the list of famous names that share their special day.

The list begins with the reason for the bad pun in my title:  Mr. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the world-renown composer, was born on this date (1756-1791) and is continued with:  Lewis Carroll, the author of the famous “Alice in Wonderland” books (1832-1898); Pittsburgh Steelers founder Art Rooney (1901-1988); journalist/publisher William Randolph Hearst, Jr. (1908-1993); the creator of “Alvin & The Chipmunks”, Ross Bagdasarian, Sr. (who also went by his stage name of David Seville) was born in 1919 (1919-1972); late actress Donna Reed (1921-1986); 1950’s heartthrob Troy Donahue (1936-2001); actor James Cromwell, who had big hits with “Babe” (with the pig LOL) and “The Green Mile” (1940); Pink Floyd drummer/songwriter Nick Mason (1944) and Russian dancer/choreographer Mikhail Baryshnikov was born in 1948.

Also of note is it the 62nd birthday of one of the co-creators of the hit cartoon/comic “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”, Mr. Peter Laird, who was born in 1954, artist/producer/director Frank Miller (such hits as “300” and “The Dark Knight Returns” movies and the comic book “Elektra”) was born in 1957, former Cincinnati Bengals mainstay Cris Collinsworth and journalist Keith Olbermann were born in 1959, and actress Bridget Fonda was born in 1964.

Finishing the updated version; country superstar Tracy Lawrence (1968), Faith No More vocalist Mike Patton (1968), former NFL kicker Matt Stover (1968) and comedian/voice actor Patton Oswalt was born in 1969.

As always, there are more names on the list but that is what next year is for…
