Happy Anniversaries

25 years ago today, "Video Killed the Radio Star" by the Buggles aired on MTV. (Complete tangent but would the Buggles even have been a one-hit wonder without MTV? Did the song get any radio play?) That's right, MTV is officially 25 today. To celebrate, MTV aired portions of one video per year in a one-hour (or 30-minute; I'm not sure) show. Not much of a retrospective. Oh, MTV also showed several episodes of Sweet Sixteen, celebrating the birthdays of people born 9 years after the station debuted.

2 years ago today, I got married!

We saw the Reduced Shakespeare Company as an early anniversary event and then went to a nice dinner on Tuesday.
