I’m Kevin McHale Today

aka, the big 3-2

not much more to say

but i guess that number’s commensurate with the number of gray hairs i’ve got

plus, like, having a job and a daughter

onward & sidewayz…

feel free to leave me a nice comment about not seeming nearly as old as i am

or, better yet, buy me a book!

My Wish List

    happy birthday!!!! hugs all round..

  • 6. Caro  |  May 27th, 2008 at 3:48 pm

    *sigh* I remember 32. It was nice.

    From a vantage point further up the road, Wayne, I can tell you it’s fine, fine, fine.

    Lapiz verde puyu!

    I saw you at Brandeis, and with little Nico too, at some lecture about lifting the university up from wherever it has fallen (in the library) as well as attended a few of your global hiphop classes on the low

    i admire your work and your blog and its nothing that anyone less than who’s about 30-ish could accomplish

    so chin up! ultimate beef indeed-

    happy birthday my friend!

  • 9. rupture  |  May 28th, 2008 at 12:18 am

    Celtics!? Boston sucks! but i love Wayne. LONG LIVE WAYNE.

    felicidades big poppa. Andre 3000 and Jaime Oliver were both born on your birthday (but in my birth year… the glorious year of 1975)

    Ramsey Lewis and Left Eye were also born May 27

  • 11. Andrew  |  May 28th, 2008 at 4:58 am

    Dude, I know you’re working at it, but you’re still way younger than me. 32’s not a bad age at all, if I recall correctly.

  • 12. wayneandwax  |  May 28th, 2008 at 9:54 am

    That’s good company, Rajah.

    Thanks to all for the kind words. 32 is kind of a meh number, but it feels about right. And I always did prefer McHale to Bird, for true!

    […] all is well. Felicidades on 3-2, you don’t look a day over […]

  • 14. kevin  |  May 30th, 2008 at 11:12 am

    You got 24 months of 86 Celtics in front of you. Right now, you’re elbowing out under the hoop just to scoop out to next year’s Bird for a 3 @ 33.

  • 15. mad ep  |  June 9th, 2008 at 5:00 pm

    happy birthday… 32 better be a good one, i got it coming up next month….

    the cd is in the mail!


  • 16. » O&hellip  |  May 27th, 2009 at 9:35 am

    […] other words (or not), whereas last year I was McHale, this year I’m Bird […]


I'm a techno-musicologist, internet annotator, imagined community organizer.

I left my <3 in the digital global, but I reside in Cambridge, MA, where I'm from.

I represent like that.
