Happy (Early) Birthday Ray Bradbury!


UCLA has a number of videos up to celebrate Ray Bradbury’s 90th birthday, which is this Sunday.

In one of the videos Bradbury explains, unequivocally, how he made it to 90: “You have to love life completely.  I have been in love with life everyday of my life.”  The best way to describe Mr. Bradbury?  He is a pomegranate: “I’m a pomegranate. I’m a pomegranate! I have a billion seeds in me, I have a billion seeds poetry in me.  I have a billion seeds of stage plans, a billion seeds of screenplays, a billion seeds of novels, a billion seeds of short stories.”  Happy (early) Birthday Ray Bradbury!
