Just in case, those fez-wearing clowns I posted are Harry S. Truman and J. Edgar Hoover.

notable people who died on the day/month/year of your birth (and whose souls presumably transmigrated into your body at the moment of death/birth) are hard to find, but that would be a neat thread concept. this guy fits the description for me:

who is your guy, NickB? At first I thought it was Proust, which would make your feeling old pretty justified.

gonna prove my youth by using only colour photos:

ey why'd my images from wikipedia not work. Also:

Born on the day I died

um, other way around. OR IS IT?!?!?!

Antoine Bugleboy (Merdeyeux), Friday, 17 September 2010 22:14 (nine years ago) link

All the Sartre pics were b+w because they were taken long before his death, so I got to looking for colour pics for my year but got sidetracked by amusement (considering their respective dates of birth and decades of greatest commercial success) that Ian Curtis photos are almost entirely b+w and John Lennon's are about 50:50

this may only be amusing in my head, but, lol proto-goths
