A favorite of mine since the late 1990s, when he worked in World Championship Wrestling, Chris Jericho has since been World Champion six times, including being the first WWE/WCW Undisputed Champion after the companies merged in 2001, and has been Intercontinental Champion an astonishing NINE times.  He’s good at talking, good at wrestling, creative in how he makes the crowd love or hate him (doing both equally expertly, I might add, which is incredibly difficult) and also serves as frontman for his own metal band, Fozzy.  He is also exactly my age, have been born less than a month before me in 1970, and to think that someone your age has accomplished so much in the same amount of time that I’ve cultivated…


…an expert knowledge of the Legion and mediocre skill at spinnin’ quarters just boggles my mind, leading me to today’s chronological query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) XXXXX asks: What celebrity and/or public figure are you most amazing to realize is exactly your age?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

  1. From both sides.

    I thought Maggie Q was younger than I (I thought she was late 20’s, MAYBE early 30’s at most) and Ryder Strong was older (probably because on “Boy Meets World” he looked older than most kids our age did where I grew up). Turns out we’re all born in 1979.
