This Is the Dawning of the Age of...

Are you an Aquarian? Today is your lucky day, as The Head pours out his zodiacal good fortune on your computer. This was one of several astrological alter egos done for Daria. (Thanks, Pinhead and UU!) Sadly, the horoscope series is incomplete.

We could consider this as The Head's Day if you want another fandom-related holiday. The Head was a very minor character who appeared in "Esteemsters" and never quite went away. In fact he appeared throughout the series all the way to the very last movie. Strange fellow, and stranger the connection implied between Daria, Beavis and Butt-head, and The Head. Are they all part of the same story universe?

Today is also the day when the Botany Bay colony (now Sydney) in Australia was completed 222 years ago with the arrival of the last ships. AND it is the day when the very first OzDariaCon was organized nine years ago by Tafka. Thank you!

What else happened in fandom history.... DVDaria became a blog five years ago today, and THANK YOU! to everyone who signed up there for helping us get our favorite show out to the masses! Also, the great Anne D. Bernstein gave her first interview with Kara Wild four years ago today and revealed Much That Was Not Known. Great interview!
