m.r.bird After this film was released in 1987, I was obsessed. I had to have the soundtrack and Santa delivered the cassette for Christmas of '88 (I believe). I don't have a VHS Player but this film still sits on the book shelf. It's a sad story but this film made me aware of Richard Steven Valenzuela's (Ritchie Valens) phenomenal talent. Although he died today (along with Buddy Holly and J.P. Richardson) in 1959 at age 17, he is still considered to be a forefather for Chicano rock music. Incredible. #RIP #thedaythemusicdied 4d

m.r.bird A Duck ride would have been fun while my parents were town. This was a ride courtesy of @moz_hq and it was as good as the first time I rode a Duck. #goodtimes #frapples #vsco 1mon

m.r.bird I love her. This beauty turned 30 today, believe it or not! It's her day but the memories of our Oregon coast weekend (drinkin' with pinkys up) is a sweet gift to me that I can't to wait repeat next year. She's my wife and truly my best friend. If you know her then you trust me when I say that life is pure joy with her by my side. ¡Qué suerte!
