A late birthday gift for my best friend @dio420, have the big asshole DIO and his boy Vanilla Ice!! I wish you the absolute Best, you’re the Daniel to my Alexander, the dog to my Will, and I am so happy we got to meet and become friends! You deserve good things and I hope in this new year of your life, things will work out well for you and that things fall into place!
Diego doesn’t have a canon birthday. This is bad, because I really want to draw some dinosaur eating birthday cake action. We need to make May 15th, or National Dinosaur Day, a makeshift birthday for Diego. Spread the word. Don’t let this little dude miss out on presents and cake.
An enclosure card handwritten to Marilyn Monroe from Marlon Brando. The small card has an image of Asian-inspired scene of a boat in a body of water. Reads in full, “Happy birthday Marylin [sic] from Marlon.”
“I didn’t want my father to get near, Christian. The day he was born I said it to my self with tears in my eyes, in the hospital. My father is never going to come near that child, because of the damage he did to me.”

You are not only an icon and one of the greatest actor the world has ever seen, but you are also a person who understood your influence on the world and used it to make a difference. You were an activist who fought against poverty, racism, and for all the humans that no one wanted to see. You were so much ahead of your time, and I, like many others, are extremely grateful for you!
“I suppose the story of my life is a search for love, but more than that, I have been looking for a way to repair myself from the damages I suffered early on and to define my obligation, if I had any, to myself and my species.” - Marlon Brando
“Simply put, in film acting, there is before Brando, and there is after Brando. And they are like different worlds.” -Rick Lyman
“No figure of his influence has so precariously balanced a handful of unforgettable achievements against a brimming barrelful of embarrassments. And yet the reverence in which he is held by his profession is unshakable.” - Richard Schickel
