DeanMail - July 10th, 2013 - Happy Birthday, Nikola Tesla!
I just wanted to acknowledge the birthday of the amazing inventor, Nikola Tesla, a Serbian-American born on this day back in 1856, who, though woefully unacknowledged, pretty much invented, well... practically everything that our modern technological society is based on - you know, cool stuff like alternating current and alternating motors, remote controls, electric light and neon bulbs, radio, x-rays, hydro-power, radio-astronomy, wireless communications, etc... Like I said, pretty much every damn electricity and radio-based technology of the 19th & 20th century, even though loads of other folks continue to get all the credit.

Oh, and on a totally separate note, if afterwards you felt inclined to order tickets to one of my upcoming gigs, well, you know, gee... who am I to stop you? ORDER TICKETS to Dean's Upcoming Tour
