Have You Heard the One with the ‘Joker and the Thief of the Night?’

Seeing as this workweek is nearly over, it’s perfectly fitting to start listening to music that puts us in the right mood for such a celebratory occasion. In today’s case, some good rock n’ roll with a modern twist is the right way to go to jump-start what will be a great summer weekend in July!

Ladies and gentlemen, the band from down under and some of Australia’s finest: Wolfmother.

They’re Sydney’s current operatic house band that rocks like barbequed shrimp and a can of Foster’s on a white sand beach.

Happy Monday!

Since today is my niece’s birthday and because she is a fan of that little independent film called Frozen, Jimmy’s Daily Planet will post the only video/song that can be posted for such a celebratory occasion.

You know the words…

Happy Monday and Happy Birthday to My Niece!

The Bicentennial!

This is the 200th Post on Jimmy’s Daily Planet!

It’s a bit surreal to be writing my 200th blog post. To be more precise, it was never on my horizon to even think this far into the future when I first started Jimmy’s Daily Planet. I knew what I wanted this website to be in the beginning and it’s been gradually evolving with each new post. I for one am truly excited to see where it continues to go from here!

Just reflecting solely on the number 200 reminds me of what a big number it is. The United States of America is 237 years old, there are more than 200 restaurants in New York City…plus 4,000 other ones, an electric motorcycle has broken the 200 mph barrier, there are at least 200 different types of wine in most grocery stores these days and I’ve probably quoted my favorite television shows and movies more than 200 times.

But maybe it’s just a matter of perspective. Whose perspective? How about a robot with a perfectly pertinent name for today’s celebratory occasion with the always amazing Sam Neill as his somewhat reluctant comedic sidekick:

(Oh, and this post is also two hundred words long)

Here’s to 200 More!
