Matt Groening’s birthday is on Nirvana day, the 15th.  He will turn 47.

How do I know this?  My Futurama calendar says it.


Peace out

Do you know who he is?  He is the creator of Futurama and Simpsons, and a comic strip called 'Life in hell.'

Alot of the writers visit the sites and love them and since Matt is into alot of geeky science fiction stuff (nothing wrong with that btw) it wouldn't suprise me if he's one of them. But think about how much work he has to do:
Two big shows in which he's involved with all stages of it's production, a comic strip, all the follow up work (promotion etc) for both shows and to top that he's got children to spend time with.
I don't think I could do even half that much and I'm less than half his age. Sometimes I don't think he gets enough credit, for what he does, from other people (not you guys  :) ).
But think about what would happen if he posted here... EVERYONE would be wanting to post messages to him so no-one would talk aout much else.
Still it would be great if he did the odd post.

Here's a bit of trivia if anyone is interested: 
Matt Groening is two years older than Homer Simpson.
How do I know this you ask?
In the episode that showed that Homer met Marge in High School we find that he is graduating in 1974.  Unless he was held back a year or two he should be 18 when he graduates (or 17 and turn 18 later that year).  If he's 18 in 1974 then he will be 45 in 2001.

Damn, I've got way too much time on my hands.

Yeah but their birthdates keep changing.
Bart should be about 24 by now cos he was 10 in 1987.
and Maggie should be older than a lot of people on this board.

And in the episode where they think about when Lisa was born, w/ Maggie's first words, Bart was like 2 or 3 while they were watching the '84 summer Olympics.

So are we planning on filling up his e-mailbox with birthday wishes?  If so, what's the address?

Well, for one thing that little annoying brat (bart182) wouldn’t  stop telling me about his site and his stupid user name!  “Oh and by the way” this “by the way” that!  He kept telling me about this site, and so I go to it and its crap!  Anyway, my email is in my profile.

Btw, Mr. Hawks,  GREAT SITE!!!!!!!!!  Not like bart182’s!  His sucks.

Hey, it's Matt Groening! It's really Matt, and not some imposter! Wow! I can't believe it! Oh my god! Wow!

That was sarcasm, by the way...

Who cares if he's an imposter or not.  He likes my web site and that's good enough for me.

Actually, generally, when "celebrities" go online, they use their own name, except when they're afraid of obsessive fans. Courtney Love used to post online, as herself. She was quite pissed off to find at least four impostors, and demanded that someone do something about it. Author Poppy Z. Brite posts on alt.gothic all the time--but not on the pzb fan mailing list (which she secretly reads and laughs at). The singer of EMF showed up on an EMF fan board. And so on.

So it's plausible that Matt Groening would post here. But I'm pretty sure he hasn't yet.

Jonathan Davis from Korn has a wierd username, not his name.  But David from korn kinda uses his real name 'david(and is wife's name).

Question nothing.  I'm outright mocking it.  On the same note, it would be "shows," not "show's."

What's the rule on apologizing?  Because that's what I'm doing, admitting I'm wrong, at least about that spelling.
