I randomly came across my old LiveJournal account, and it's pretty funny - to me, anyways.
I wasn't much of a poster. Here's my LJ post from December 2004 dedicated to a childhood hero of mine.
Dear Levar Burton,
I love you, and I enjoy your Reading Rainbow. I also enjoyed you as Jordy LaForge because you wore a fun eye-thing. I'm partial to fun eye-things, and I'm sad that I don't own one. Recently I found out that you were a part of the 80's group Cameo, and you sang "Word Up". I find that interesting. You are a man of many colours, much like your rainbow of reading. I will never forget when you went to a noodle-making place and learned how to make tortellini. Oh, how the bending of pasta around bits of cheese caught my interest. And made me hungry. I'll never forget that tortellini episode. I don't remember the stories very well... but the pasta shall never be forgotten.
Your bestest friend,
p.s.- Where are you now? I hope you're making royalties off of Korn's re-make of your song. Buy some tortellini with it.
I failed to mention that he also played Kunta Kinte in the movie/mini-series Roots, but whatever.
I still dig ya, LVB.
