Happy Birthday, Tiny Tim
Today is Tiny Tim’s birthday. If you only know him for his campy, goofy songs, then please take a few minutes to play the song above. You’re in for a treat.
I really consider him a heroic, inspirational figure. His was an odd dream– he wanted to sing songs from the 1890s to the 1920s, in falsetto, in white-face, accompanied only by his ukulele– but he persevered, he worked hard, and he made it come true.
He lived the life he wanted to live. Who could ask for more?
