I wouldn't have known if I hadn't of checked out the great Wonderful Wonderblog, but today is Bela Lugosi's birthday. Time to bust out the Bauhaus records and the DVD of "Bride of the Monster" ("Home?! I have no home...).
I'm reminded of a cassette tape I used to have of an early 80s concert by The Cramps, during which Lux Interior proclaims, "Bela Lugosi was just on the cover of Time Magazine. The war is over...and we won!" Of course, Lux, as much as I love him, was totally wrong, but still...Bela would have been 125 today!
