...seeing as I slept on his birthday this weekend. The first time I met Jukka of the world famous Dudesons was during his guest appearance on the Nitro Circus set in 2009. He came in hot. Went for everything they put him up to despite not knowing a motorized quad from the two meat straps on his thighs. And polished it off by wrist-watching with Andy Bell. For those of you not familiar with this practice, it's the ancient art of incredibly elastic wiener wrapping around other appendages. Anyway, then and there I knew he was family of a sort, and have consistently run into him throughout the years and always with a super big grin on his Finnish face. That said, it was very remiss of me to have missed his birthday, so consider this my official mea culpa. Hope it was a good one, Jukka!
