Happy Birthday Wes!

Wes Anderson was born May 1, 1969 in Houston, Texas.

From all us at The Rushmore Academy…Happy Birthday, Wes.

Celebrate all things Anderson today, read Derek Hill’s bio, watch Matt Zoller Seitz’s five part video essay series, make a Tumblr tribute. At the very least, get out those DVDs.

Let’s go have a drink and smoke a cigarette.

Happy Birthday, Wes!

Wes you’re my hero! Happy Birthday. Thnx 4 coloring my world. XO 40 x infinity!


Happy Birthday Mr Anderson.


I will celebrate Wes’ bday by writing a play, saving Latin, killing a jaguar shark & making out with my adopted brother.


Wes Anderson turns the big 4-0 today. Happy Birthday to Wes!

Me and him are celebrating by running around downtown Vancouver shooting short films French New Wave style via handheld camera.

Tonight it’s possible that I may sacrifice a small goat to celebrate this joyous occasion.
