Happy Birthday, Mr. Taxman.

In the late 1990s, I was in a band with today's birthday celebrant, DJ John X (though his name didn't quite have the prefix nor the suffix back then). From the picture on the far left, you can see I rocked the sideburns and played a maple fretboard Fender Stratocaster, and John Ingles played a rosewood Strat while singing through a Dirt Devil microphone stand.

Fast-forward about ten years, and apparently John plays the bass in a band called Roadside Junkies. I hope to one day hear this band's music on their MySpace profile or maybe even catch a show.

Anyhow, DeRamos.org wishes DJ John X a happy birthday, so here's the trailer to a 2004 college student film I never finished editing called Death and Taxes, with John playing the principal antagonist, appropriately named The Taxman:

...speaking of which, have you all living in the U.S.A. file your tax returns yet? The clock is ticking, like an episode of 24...
