Aries (The Ram) is the first astrological sign in the zodiac and the first sign of the spring, are characterized as full of life, passionate, enthusiastic but always like to be first.

Aries are adventurous and courageous, always determined to accept challenges. Because of their autonomy, the Aries is a born leader.

The weakness of the Aries is their tendency towards impatience when not faced with a challenging situation, this can also lead to thoughtless or impulsive behavior.

At the end of the day, the Aries are cheerful and the combination of all of their traits make them very cute and loyal to friends new and old.

Happy Birthday, Cornie! The next one will be a big one!

    So the invitation at the top of this blog is from Cornell and Ben. Ben is Ben Fernandez, friend of Cornell’s, fellow-Aries, and long-time director of photography at The New School. For most of ICP’s first 5 or so years, Ben would cook up a huge pot of beef and bean Chili and gather with his fans and Cornell’s in ICP’s ground-floor gallery on a Monday evening in early April. Bedrich Grunzweig (part of the founding staff) was also an Aries.
    And that’s John Chao with Cornell and his birthday cake.
    The last picture of Cornell with his beloved standard poodle Yofi is on Cornell’s apartment terrace.
