On this day, 49 years ago, a very special event occured. The fruit of such an event led to world-changing results – especially in the movie business. Can you guess what this day is?
Johnny Depp’s birthday!
Today, Johnny Depp turned 49. So naturally, being an extreme Johnny Depp fan as I am, I was inclined to celebrate. Originally I wanted to have a birthday party for him, or rather for his fans in celebration of him. I planned that everyone would come dressed as their favorite Johnny Depp character; we would have a cake with his photo on it; pirate rum drink for a beverage; and have a Johnny Depp movie marathon. It probably would have went well, except for the fact that aside from me and my best friend, Johnny Depp fans are null and void in my city. In fact, pretty much everyone in my circle of friends dislikes Johnny Depp – with a passion. It makes me terribly sad, so needless to say, the party isn’t happening.
However, with my parents permission, I still decided to celebrate. I baked a cake (chocolate, of course), made pirate rum drink, and am still watching a Johnny Depp movie marathon. At the moment, I’m watching Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. I have planned to also watch Benny and Joon, Edward Scissorhands, Alice in Wonderland, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I really wanted to watch Chocolat, but we don’t own it, so it won’t be happening today. However, we should be getting it from Netflix in the next few days, so I guess that works. There are pretty much a bazillion other Johnny Depp movies that I still need to watch, but I’m slowly working through the list.
This is a short post, but I just wanted to mention Johnny Depp’s birthday, and I would love to hear from all of you fellow Johnny Depp fans out there! Also, what’s your favorite movie he has starred in? Feel free to share!
I’ll sign off with a quote from Johnny: “I don’t pretend to be Captain Weird; I just do what I do.” (Thanks Picco!)
