It’s finally here! International Kevin Sorbo Day! Yay!
No, Kevin doesn’t drop down your chimneys with presents or leave chocolate Kevins in your baskets or anything else you people are thinking. So, stop that!
This is HIS day, no matter how much he hates it. Some of us got together and created presents just for him. We hope you all enjoy them as much as we did making them.
Happy Birthday, Kevin!!!!
Many thanks to all who contributed: Loli, Nancy, Mara, Rhonda, Malena, Jan, Carol and Jacqui.
AMAZON WISHES TO KEVIN ON HIS BIRTHDAY
BY CAROL HOWELL (DESSY) 9/22/2012
One lovely sunny day I traveled down a new way
Went silently o’er the road and around the bend
Not expecting adventure, not expecting news
When to my surprise I ran into an old friend
‘Twas an Amazon from the wonderful days gone by
A comrade and warrior from long ago
A friend who walked with me and loves our Big Guy
And who also told stories of his adventures to and fro
As we sat and caught up she shared happy news
A celebration was drawing friends from near and far
Our dear Kevin was not sharing the clues
But the celebration of his birth was about to start
Excitement began to flow thru my veins
A smile crossed my weary face
Was time to gather our sisters together
And begin to decorate this quiet place
It had been a while since we’d gathered together in force
His faithful Amazons had been pretty quiet
But still we were near quietly staying the course
Now we joyfully prepared to start a happy riot
Its time to count our numbers
Its time to stand up and shout
His sweet Amazons no longer slumber
From every corner they’re dancing out
Each Amazon shouting their happy salutations
Each one crying out their wishes to the sky
All carrying presents and congratulations
We’re all here to celebrate the birthday of our Big Guy
Knowing he likes to keep it to himself
And not tell the world he’s a year older
His Amazons remind him he’s the same to them
And the Happy Birthday sign goes up from its folder
It’s time to celebrate; it’s time to dance
It’s time to gather together friends from times gone by
And share our love and stories of adventure and romance
And wish Happy Birthday and joy to our one and only Big Guy
We want you to know our hearts are bursting with joy
At the journey you’ve traveled and the great things you’ve done
The place you’ve come from and the places you are going
We stand together as always celebrating with you as ONE
So on your special day Kevin we send our love and cheer
We dance and sing and laugh still dear friends
Remember Kevin it is you that’s the reason for this lifetime bond
And YOU are the good and kind person who has brought us here
Remember Kevin no matter where you travel no matter where you go
Your Amazons are still here standing strong: It’s not past
We send this Amazon Birthday wish so you will always know
We stand with you all way, Your Ole Amazons love stands fast
Here’s the second of Jacqui-D’s Happy Birthday, Kevin videos:
Tomorrow is Kevin’s birthday. Wahoooo! Or as he says, “Uggggh…”
In either case, I’ve decided to officially make September 24, on my blog anyway…
International Kevin Sorbo Day!!!
Who wants to celebrate???? Yeeehawwww!!!
Let’s get this party started!
Here are a few vids to whet your appetite:
Jacqui-D posted the first of three she made. Watch for the second one tomorrow and the third on Tuesday. (That’s her singing, BTW, very nice!!!)
This one is by Malena from her beautiful artwork:
Teresa made this one with all kinds of cool special effects:
Greetings, everyone! I was so busy trying to keep up with Kevin and all of your excellent stories that I missed our Sorbo Writer’s Blog’s second anniversary last year. Sheesh! Does time ever fly?!
We are now on our third year of this blog thanks to you, Kevin’s incredible, loyal fans! Many, many thanks for your friendships and support, for sharing this blog, and for continuing to send stuff to me, as well as for your understanding that no matter how tardy I might be with posts, I love hearing from you all and am doing my best to share everything.
So, here are the beautiful artworks created previously by our wonderfully talented artists Evelyne, Mara, Loli, Malena and Aliykat to celebrate 2011, and now 2012.
Thank you so, so much, my amazing friends! Enjoy!
Hi, everyone, a very Merry Christmas to you all!
This year I wish to share Sanne’s beautiful holiday message with you. She is one of our amazing Kevin artists who also creates our monthly calendars.
Sanne recently revamped her popular Sorbo’s-Tribute website (story to come) and gave us some stunning art for Advent, as well as many other lovely pieces. She topped her Christmas art this year with the following great collage. Many, many thanks, dear friend!
Aliykat (Alison) in Canada made her first vid for Kevin’s birthday, and wrote about how and why she did. Wow! Way to go, Ali!
For years I have followed the career of Kevin Sorbo. I first chanced upon the actor when he starred in the TV show, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. The flowing, long, sun-kissed brown hair and beautiful cerulean blue eyes with all those muscles and bare hairy chest on the body that seems to go on forever drew my attention. The more I watched him, the deeper I sank. I followed the actor on to Andromeda, where the hair was cut off (I cried for the loss) and the muscles slimmed down, but here remained this tall drink of water with those eyes I couldn’t stop watching.
A year ago my husband convinced me to join up with Twitter and Facebook in order to find out more about the actor. Since then I have made amazing Sorbo Sister friends and have even been followed back by the man himself on Twitter, which stunned the heck out of me.
I have come to realize by following Kevin that he is more than just an actor: He is a humanitarian, a husband, a father, a spokesperson, a jokester, a humongous flirt and an all around man’s man and good guy. He is one of the hardest workers I have ever heard of with movies and guest appearances everywhere that you want to look and in every genre.
I want to share my opinion that it is not just Kevin Sorbo’s eye color that draws us into them. Not saying that I don’t love the color of them, but, what I am saying is that the expression in Kevin’s eyes is what makes them special. When he looks off into the distance, I want to know what he is looking at. When his eyes crinkle with laughter, I want to laugh with him. When the tears well up in his eyes, I can’t help but cry with him. Kevin’s eyes take me on a journey with him, and it is a journey I wish to travel.
Once again, Kevin’s birthday has come around. However, this year I have learned a few tricks. Last year, I sent out my birthday wish with the rest of the fans on Twitter because it was all I could do. Since then, I have been learning Photoshop and have started with a few Kevin collages that I have passed around on his anniversary, Christmas, and such.
But, for his birthday I have decided to go a wee bit further with a little help from a friend named GinaNyxx who had started to do videos in the last year and agreed to put the collages together in a video. I made all the collages myself (42 of them) in Photoshop, but when it came time to complete the video, I was so invested in it, I asked GinaNyxx to teach me how to put it together myself instead.
Being the sweetheart that she is, she, of course, agreed. To my amazement the video-making is a lot easier and less time-consuming than making one collage. Thanks once again to my bosom buddy GinaNyxx for making the learning easy.
I did enhance the eye color to draw the attention to Kevin’s eyes and because of the distance of the shots. I have never met Kevin, so I cannot guarantee that they are the correct color, and because with lighting and background colors, it is never a guarantee to get the shade of color accurate.
Again, the point of the video is to draw attention to Kevin’s expressions through his eyes because I believe this is what makes him a great actor. I have and will continue to feel through Kevin’s eyes.
Have a great Birthday, Big Guy.

So, so sorry for the belated birthday wishes for Kevin whose big, um, 29th (again!) was September 24.
This beautiful vid is from Jacqui in Scotland, and here’s her sweet message:
For Kevin on his birthday. Thanks for allowing us to escape from our daily troubles.
Thanks very much to Teresa Sanchez and Sanne Jasker for allowing me to use some of their amazing images.
