today 1. april

i hate april 1st. the jokes usually suck. plus it is a terrible date for me. in 1997 on an april 1st something totally fucked has happened to me. and it was not even a joke…
an attempt to reconcile with this date, but uhm:
1881 – the first telephone network gets started in berlin with 48 members
1930 – der blaue engel featuring marlene dietrich opens in berlin
1976 – steve jobs and steve wozniak start apple
‡ 1947 – ingrid steeger, german actress (klimbim)
‡ 1948 – jimmy cliff, jamaican reggae star (the harder they come)
‡ 1949 – gil scott-heron, wild american music genius
† 1984 – marvin gaye, soul singer (killed by a preacherman, his dad)
† 1976 – max ernst, painter (surealist and dadaist)
all the info is from – amazing open source information database
always interesting to check out: today in rotten history – lets seeeee
