The time before that the community impacted me was when I took a bad fall in 2011 and was hospitalized and blah blah blah. Folks here attended a fundraiser The Mod put on and/or donated $ to help my family during this difficult time. Some, many, of these folks I’ve never met in person! They did it because we met here. That is what a community does.

Enough about me…what do you think of me? JK. So what in the world could I possibly do to to thank Mr. Moderator for his 30+ year friendship that has meant so much to me that I’ll get wedgied if I continue expounding on it here.

I have no way to prep you for the following gift-of-gifts except to say that it is after the fold…because it is NSFW. (Don’t know what NSFW stands for? Google it or regret not Googling it. At this point I realize that it would have taken less space, time [mine and yours] if I had just written out what it stands for but…that’s part of the gift…I guess…)

Happy Birthday & Thank You
Mr. Moderator

  1. Happy Birthday, MR. M! Remember 50 is just a number; a really really big number. May we all raise an Italian sausage in your honor. (I mean a real sausage, get your minds out of the gutter) Thanks for all the inspiration and entertainment you bring to the Hall.

    Sammy, the full 1-800 number please?

    To paraphrase Shakespeare, age cannot wither him, not custom stale his infinite variety.

    Happy birthday, Moddie. Enjoy this, your first year of your sixth decade.

    Your pal in Rock and otherwise,

    Happy birthday, Mr. Modulator. May you have at least another half century of rock and roll.

    Sammy, thanks for the shout out. It was an honor to meet the overworked and under-appreciated RTH IT staff in L.A. and hang out with you and the rest.

  7. Welcome to the 50’s club. You know you’re in your 30’s when you get weird ear hair. You know you’re in your 40’s when you have to hold the menu at arm’s length to read it. Get psyched for what comes next.

    Happy birthday and thanks for keeping the light on! I think I’m an “organic” townsperson, too. I’m pretty sure I’m about the only Clevelander (ish) here. I know last year when I turned 50 those fuckers at AARP sent me a signup card two months before I was 50! I was pissed! But I keep thinking I should sign up for 5% off my meals at Denny’s.

    Wow – for once I have perfect timing…been under the gun last few weeks with the pesky day job and I pick the very day of Mr. Mod’s birthday to resurface and stop in at the Hall. Most excellent! Happy 50th birthday Mr. Mod…I’m right on your heels and your a Mod-el to us all.

    Happy birthday, Mr. Mod. Thanks not only for the entertaining reading, but also for all the good music this site has led me to.

  11. Happy Birthday Mr. Mod. Congratulations on 50 years of principled stubborn!

    Happy belated Birthday Mr. Mod & welcome to the 50 club, which I joined just last year. Props on putting the piccy of Jamie Moyer on your post. He was the last of our generation to be active in MLB. We certainly have come to a turning point.

    • I kept dreading the day that Moyer was out of baseball. I knew it would mark the end of one of my fantasy lives, or so I thought. I guess some fantasies never die. I’m not ready to aspire to some new ridiculous fantasy, like becoming President of the US, or whatever a man our age should fantasize about becoming.

  13. Belated Happy Birthday Mr. Mod. Welcome ot the wrong side of 50. It ain’t that bad.

    Most people I know seem to at least try to keep it together and not morph into boring old farts. At least that’s my plan.

    Shit, y’all are old. Happy 50th!
