In Defense of Birthdays 

By Josh Gross

A friend of mine recently went on an anti-birthday rant, condemning no shortage of people he considered complicit in the greeting-card-industrial-complex. I told him while I certainly agreed that Hallmark's corporate office is located in some circle of hell that Dante curiously omitted, holidays are times to celebrate certain emotions or concepts that are key to human existence, but are easily lost in the day-to-day, and that birthdays are times to celebrate the people we know and love, to acknowledge that our world is a better place with them in it. We agreed to disagree. But following that line of thought, this mixtape celebrates artists born this week, including everyone from Aretha Franklin and Elton John to Kenny Chesney and M.C. Hammer.
