What A Long Strange Blog It’s Been
Since the publication of the aptly titled Opening Statement on March 3, 2006, Heck Of A Guy has accumulated 1,666 more posts (counting today’s), 72 pages, and beaucoup tags, comments, and footnotes.
There are a dozen or so videos on the DrHGuy YouTube Channel and one bootleg of unreleased Leonard Cohen songs that are Heck Of A Guy creations. Heck Of A Guy even has its own spin-offs at Leonard Cohen Search and DrHGuy.
As has been my practice on previous blog birthdays, I’m limiting this post to the acknowledgment of the annually occurring coincidence of dates that marks this arbitrary celebration and a note of appreciation to those folks who inexplicably return to this site for reasons no doubt too perverse to ponder. Thank you.
Happily, on this occasion, I can also offer this two minute mini-documentary completed by one of those international commissions located in Sweden (English subtitles provided) that includes a bit on Heck Of A Guy.
The video may take 90 seconds or so to begin the first time it’s viewed (the next 20 or 30 times you watch it, it will start immediately). Clicking on it, tapping your fingers, making obscene gestures, … will not hasten its progress.
