Video of the Day: Bob Marley

Share this post

February 6th is responsible for bringing both Ronald Wilson Reagan and Robert Nesta Marley into the world.  Both entertainers, they also shared a common love for freedom that was (clearly) expressed in exceptionally different manners.

Bob Marley proselytized to the masses in Dortmund and beyond with song and verse, and Mr. Reagan’s lyrical flair helped tear down that wall in Berlin.  Ironically, Reagan is likely responsible for the creation of more music than Marley having, ahem, inspired a generation of musicians.  And, I may or may not have had posters of both eminences on my bedroom wall in college. You know what? I won’t even attempt to deny it…”Facts are stubborn things“, after all.

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
