My apologies for the scarcity in posts up. The Autumn college semester began a few weeks ago and between that, my work for the paper, the tussle I have been engaged in with the Massachusetts RMV, and an array of other events, mustering the proper combination of free time and energy has been a bit tough.

This past Saturday I went to Wormtown, the annual stew of awesome jam bands, trippy characters, and sunshine that happens every year in Greenfield and this was my first time going. Sorry to say, I didn’t really take any pictures or have cool interview sch wag, but you can get some of that from Angela at buntology, (including cool t-shirts).

Meanwhile well I was jamming out with scores of others; there was another thing few other people knew about. Saturday was the birthday of Adam West. He is best known for his role as Batman/Bruce Wayne in the 1960s cult classic tv program BATMAN. He’s also appeared in such movies as the Happy Hooker Goes to Hollywood, Nevada Smith, and Hooper as well as guest staring on a number of other television shows, including doing voice work in Batman the Animated Series, as well as voicing himself as the eccentric Mayor of Quahog on Family Guy.

No doubt though it is his role in the tripped out, mod style Batman television series that aired from 1966-1968 that West will always be associated with. So whether it be as “Batman”, himself, or a slew of other off-beat often self deprecating roles, or those feverishly looking for an occasion to celebrate. Happy Belated Birthday Adam West.
