Celebrating Dizzy Gillespie’s Birthday With A Google Doodle
October 21st, 2010 No Comments »
Having been sick for the last few days, I came home from work early today to fight off the last remnants of a nasty cold. At 5pm I downed a dose of NyQuil in an attempt to get some sleep, and boy did it help! I slept almost until midnight, or “Round Midnight” as may be apropos to say at this moment. Upon waking up, I logged on to the computer and was super excited to find that Google decided to honor what would have been Dizzy Gillespie’s 93rd birthday with a stylized Google Doodle.
In case you’re not already aware, Google is known for displaying specially created versions of its logo in honor of different events. For example, earlier this month they featured an elaborate full motion logo that also played a short clip of John Lennon’s song “Imagine” for what would have been the former Beatles icon’s 70th birthday.
In any case, I’m still sick. I’ve just downed another dose of Nyquil to help me sleep peacefully for the rest of the night. Before it kicks in and I start typing gibberish, I’ll leave you with two memorable Dizzy moments. Happy Birthday, Dizzy!
