When I was younger my parents used to play this Captain Zoom music to me and my brother for our birthdays.. Kyle sent me the lyrics today to say “happy birthday”, and Todd Elliot found an mp3! Sweet!

Captain Zoom

For those of you who grew up in the 70’s and 80’s, you probably remember this song.. it’s just too awesome for words. 🙂

Anyway, to celebrate my 36th, Penny brought the kids into lunch which was really lovely. They also brought Sprinkles cupcakes.. which are DELICIOUS.

Aurora got me a beautiful purple Ukulele with a dolphin on it. Sweet. 🙂 And pen’s promised a guitar! woot! now I can learn to play guitar and become a rock star if this whole animation thing doesn’t work out. 🙂

Tonight is dinner at one of my favorite restaurants (Red Lantern in Redwood City.. YUM!), and sunday is passover with the family. Nice!

Oh! And the funniest part.. walking into our department meeting with the entire animation department at PDI singing Happy Birthday INCREDIBLY out of key & sync. It was…

well, it was bloody awful, but I loved it anyway. 🙂 Thanks everyone!

    Hey, thanks for uploading this song. My name is Jason, and my parents have been playing this every birthday between years 4 and 14. This brought back great memories, and even better since my name is Jason also.
