According to him, he did play trombone, but the good playing was a Watrous overdub.

I don't know that we'll ever get the zeal of the 90's back.  I was hopeful, then.

Back then the Nevada desert was Mecca for the paranormally inclined. 

Maybe the world has always been as fractioned as it is now — but we could imagine otherwise because we were technological islands.  And now we're confronted daily by the rust that corrodes civilization, and it desiccates optimism.

I don't know.

One of the figures I admired — in the field of the weird — and one of the people I consider synonymous with those "heady days," is Glenn Campbell, who is still alive:

but not for long.

He's the founder of the Area 51 Research Center, a veritable walking encyclopedia of black world aerospace. Heartbreaking to see him in this state. It seems only yesterday he was climbing Tickaboo Peak and Freedom Ridge.

I haven't, but I corresponded with him and he was very patient and helpful with questions, even though he was moving on to other things at the time. Most of his latest work involves documenting ecological change.

I recall when Art initially had him on thinking that he was going to interview the single-n Campbell of "Wichita Lineman," wrecking-crew, etc fame. But though I wish Art would've interviewed Glen I enjoyed the interview with Glenn! An interesting character to say the least and I'm sad to see his condition but I'm sure he will handle it well. Odd that both Glen/nns seem to have alerted that their health was soon going to get bad and went public with that.

http://glenn-campbell.com/uwcrcn/    Just one interesting story....

My buddy, Michael G.

He wasn't a real celeb, but he was to me. And also to the many hundreds of people who were lucky enough to know him. Initial reactions to meeting Mike usually ran something like this- first he'd scare you with his physical appearance, kind of like a gnarley tatted caveman with one eye looking at you and the other looking off to the side like he's seeing your aura. Then he'd intrigue you with his sharp mind and wit. Then you'd end up loving him. He was a textbook case of how you can choose the freedom to decide to be who you need to be as you become more self aware. He did prison time for offing a dude with a knife who was beating a woman. In the penitentiary he became an Aryan Brotherhood member with the tats and all- full back swastika, teardrop on his face, and the words Speedy McGreedy on his neck. Following his release he ended up at a rainbow gathering where he converted to a non tweeker, loving and peaceful dude. He ended up doing security for the Grateful
Dead for several years and was widely known as Rainbow Mike, or Handsome- a tribute to his intimidating looks. When I met him he was still a pretty hard drinker but after introducing him to sweat and tipi ceremonies he left that behind as well. He eventually met a beautiful woman and they loved each other so much they were like one thing. I performed their wedding ceremony on an outdoor altar with two Harleys and a mixed posse of hardcore bikers with colors, tie dyed hippies, and absolutely normal church folks. Mike loved everybody and he had a way of bringing us all together as one eclectic tribe. A couple of years back he was diagnosed with lung cancer so we flew him and his wife here to California and put him through the rigors of two Native American Church healing ceremonies, which were immediately followed by surgery back in his home state.  I believe that those prayers and his will to live contributed to his complete remission as he was pronounced cancer free 6 months ago. During one of the ceremonies he promised to all of us that he refused to let cancer take him out. He was true to his word. A few days ago he had a freak accident by which he fell and broke his neck. We can hardly believe it as Mike was one of the strongest, most indestructible appearing men I've ever met. As my son said- He was made of steel. But even steel breaks I guess. Now I'm getting ready to board a plane to Montana as his widow has asked me to lead the ceremony/celebration for one of the most amazing people I've ever known.

He called me just over a week ago and we had a long talk about friends and family and this brief opportunity we're given to explore, learn, and love. I'm so glad I had the presence of mind to tell him how much I love and appreciate him just before we ended the call. Life is delicate no matter how strong you are. It's a good thing to remember.

Let's see if I can raise this up a level or two  ::).  Ok you "Chain of Fools". "Who's Zoomin Who", here? Why don't you use your brain and "Think" about the great lady and "Natural Woman" we lost today?

"We've had superstars and megastars but America has only had one Queen"

"Aretha helped define the American experience. In her voice, we could feel our history, all of it and in every shade—our power and our pain, our darkness and our light, our quest for redemption and our hard-won respect. May the Queen of Soul rest in eternal peace."

"“I started seeing a psychiatrist, started taking Lamictal and Seroquel, which stabilized me. It wasn’t easy. I messed up a few more times, getting drunk, because I was scared about having a hysterectomy. But there’s no other way to deal with cancer except fighting back aggressively. I became a warrior. I ended the pity party and grew up, do or die.”

As time went on, Janus was able to find treatments that were effective in managing her mood and psychotic symptoms. Janus says the combination of medication and cognitive-behavioral therapy has been effective for her. "

https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/brick-brick/201509/jill-janus-new-beginning

"In addition to cognitive-behavioral therapy, Janus has been taking a holistic approach that includes the use of vitamins and dietary supplements. “Cognitive behavioral therapy is a great tool to gain self-control and avoid bad situations — mostly violent outbursts. I also began exercising at a gym this year, which is amazing for my moods.  And I changed my diet with the help of a naturopath. He prescribed supplements, which include L-Theanine, pure fish oil, homeopathic remedies, Pulsatilla 1M and Sepia 1M. I also use tincture to ease anxiety in my ‘danger zone’ between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., a mixture of equal parts Melissa officinalis, Scutellaria and Kalmerite glycerite.”"

He and his first wife had accumulated a good bit of property in northeast Florida.  The parcels were litigated over for years. I'm not sure how they got their money, but do remember that she was seriously hurt in an automobile accident before he dumped her.

Sen. John McCain was so much more than a celebrity. He was truly a great American. I rarely agreed with his politics but always respected him and appreciated his service and sacrifices to our country. And his intelligence, integrity and sense of humor. When men of honor are so desperately needed, we may never see his like again

"... We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe. We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down, when we doubt the power of our ideals, rather than trust them to be the great force for change they have always been, ..."

Burt, Dean, The girl's name slips my mind at the moment - but a big starlet - Sammy, and holy shit - is that  Earnest (Borgnine) ?
Why should I know that scene and that movie ?

Thanks for the pic.     :)
The woman is actress Shirley MacLaine, who at age 84 is now the only one still alive in that photo.

Scott Wilson, who played the farmer Hershel on the television series The Walking Dead, died yesterday at the age of 76.  Walking Dead fans will remember him as the wise, white bearded man who gave Rick Grimes and his followers sanctuary after they fled from a walking dead filled Atlanta, Georgia.  Hershel was a peaceful and wise owner of a large farm out in the country and despite the fact that he had a barnful of walking dead creatures (his family members and close friends) he did manage to instill in Rick and gang that there was more to life than just going out there and killing living and nonliving human beings.  Then the evil Governor (the series first major villain) captured Hershel and beheaded him, a major bummer and I almost stopped watching the show but I'm glad that I didn't because The Walking Dead is a super interesting, life afferming television show and while there is lots of blood and gore, there is also a wonderful sense of the gift of life exhibited.  I have really enjoyed this series over the last eight years.  Oddly enough, Hershel returns in season nine of the show (starting today if you want to watch it on AMC with all the commercials.) but, from what I've read, he is seen as a hallucination of a dying Rick Grimes.  Yup, Rick dying is going to be a major obstacle in my continuing with the series but what the hell, I'll probably keep watching it.

By the way, Scott starred in some other top flight movies such as In Cold Blood (the vicious killer Dick) The Great Gatsby, The Right Stuff, Pearl Harbor, and G.I. Jane, just to mention a few.

I'm wondering if the Hedgehog called it in immediately or if he saw an opportunity  and did the unthinkable.  Well, since this guy allegedly sucked his own  dick on film, is anything really unthinkable?

What an incredible run Stan Lee had. The end of an era. One of Stan Lee's recent and last film appearances will be in Starship Farragut's finale film "Homecoming" which is still in post production. I am sure the role in Starship Farragut (a TOS fan film series) didn't pay much so he did that out of a love for the craft.

Wow.  Didn't know Sartain was on Hee Haw.  He and Gary Busey did a small radio/television segment in the Tulsa area back in the early 70's.  Sad news about Clark.  I got to see him one at the Neewollah Festival in Independence Kansas around 15 years ago or so.  I took a group of people with developmental disabilities (my job at the time) to the parade and the music show later that night.  I remember complaining to my supervisor about the prospect of having to sit through a country music show.  I profusely apologized the following Monday.  Roy and the others put On one hell of a show.  An insanely talented entertainer. RIP.

And Stan the Man Lee...The President of my childhood.  Salute.

Interesting event in early seventies,on the Tonight with Johnny Carson show..I didn't tape...Roy and Glenn both discussing their lean years as roomies in Nashville.
At this point,Glenn sat in Clarke's lap,joking how they only had one guitar.
The two both played on an single instrument,and they played the real lyrics to"Day Dream Believer":

"If i had the wings
Of an blu-bird as she sings
That five o'clock alarm would never ring
So wake up sleepy Gene
And tell me is there any scene
For an Day-Dream Believer
And an old closet queen
Old Closet Queen"

After this,Johnny Carson was speechless!
He gulped visibly and went on,while there was scattered,un-certain applause from the alleged studio audience.
The two really stopped the show!!

Bob McNair wasn’t just the brightest Point of Light in Houston; he was one of the kindest and most generous people anywhere. Nobody cared — or helped people — more, and that’s just one of the reasons I will always be proud Bob was my good friend. He was simply The Best. My most sincere condolences and family love go to Janice and her wonderful family

From the work I have seen he was always great. His monologues were always powerful.

He also narrated what is probably my favorite movie of all time. See pic attachment.

I really liked House of Games.



The female actor in this movie also played Anne Strieber in Communion. She was actually married to David Mamet for a couple of decades.

I really liked House of Games.


“Oh, you're a bad pony, and I' m not gonna bet on you.”

One of my favorite lines from one of my all-time favorite movies, House of Games (delivered by Joe Mantegna, not by Mr. Ricky Jay—who was perfect in his supporting role as George, the con-man poker player).

“Asked about duplicity, Mr. Jay, argued: ‘You wouldn’t want to live in a world where you couldn’t be conned. Because it would mean you’re living in a world where you never trusted anyone or anything.’”  (from NYT obit, 11/25/18)

R.I.P.  Ricky Jay. 
A very interesting man.

Bush Sr. still carrying on the Thousand Points of Light nonsense today when he commented about the death of Houston Texans owner Bob McNair.

Bob McNair wasn’t just the brightest Point of Light in Houston; he was one of the kindest and most generous people anywhere. Nobody cared — or helped people — more, and that’s just one of the reasons I will always be proud Bob was my good friend. He was simply The Best. My most sincere condolences and family love go to Janice and her wonderful family

I never even heard of the Texans.  I thought Houston still had the Oilers. That tells you how much I follow football. :-[  Anyway, RIP.

Really need to watch the film, The Heart is A Lonely Hunter, from '68 that brought her a lot of accolades.  Of course, I remember her from the Eastwood films.  She was also in a movie that was remade recently with Keanu Reeves as Knock, Knock.  RIP, Miss Locke.

He was the guy who introduced the world to "rods" (and "skyfish") and a guest whose theory was called "real" by Art.

Sadly that was an apparent suicide. Apparently she had a lasic surgery that went wrong and had lots of pain and eye problems, or something.  It doesn't take much to read into this "accidental overdose," in the middle of the afternoon, an "unidentified male" reports it, Hollywood, Days Inn (though he lives in area,) and wife and child somewhere else even though schools are shut down for the Holidays and so likely they would be at home.

Choices. And bad, questionable ones. I feel bad for the wife and, worse, daughter. Jeez, as Norry might say. I hope he had, or the station had, a good policy for him that covers such behavior resulting in death. Or, better yet, contains some "Hollywood rider" that covers it without releasing details to the wife and daughter.

RIP Lyndon LaRouche.


https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/13/obituaries/lyndon-larouche-dead.html

Amen. :'(

"Mr. LaRouche was at the apex of his power in the mid-1980s, when he moved his headquarters to a large rented estate in Northern Virginia, in Round Hill, outside Leesburg. When neighbors wondered aloud why he had turned the estate into an armed camp, rigged with electronic security and patrolled by men with semiautomatic rifles, Mr. LaRouche went on the attack. He said that the Leesburg Garden Club was “a nest of Soviet fellow travelers.”

Ha! It is a twisted tale and complected relationship. I think, maybe, it comes down to which royalty is the ultimate enemy: Venetian banking dynasties or the Queen? Even though Fritz can explain how they became one in the same via bloodlines and inter-marriages.

Died   February 9, 2019 (aged 86)
Florida, U.S.
Occupation   Radio host, entrepreneur, writer
Years active   1975–2013

At that time, the show became a mix of business and politics, and every show ended with the song God Bless America.

Sad.  I often would go back to listen to his final reboot, including his final show in which he explained that the business model for podcasting wasn't working out with supporting his staff.

I listened to him on weekends in the late 80s through the early 90s when I spent a lot of time on the road in the Midwest. 

A plane crash couldn't keep him off the air...  Another great one lost.

In Duane's place, I nominate Don Henley.

There must be a story there. I think that there's a song there too.

Glenn Frey died already.  Him and Don Henley are turds for firing Don Felder. Joe Walsh puts up with it because he's just an employee and likes the money...

The great bass trombonist Phil Teele died. He was first call with the LA local and played on many movie scores - The Godfather, Patton,  the Planet of the Apes movies, Die Hard 1&2, many of the Star Trek movies, Men in Black, Mars Attacks, and many, many more. He also played in jazz big bands and recorded tracks that were more experimental, such as Low and Outside.

Are you referring to the Mandela Romantics and Mandela Rush? I think that both bands were started by Stevie Nicks, who was in Heart, before she joined Fleetwood Mac, a band that evolved into Steely Dan, which was largely comprised of former members of the Doobie Brothers before that group changed its name to the Steve Miller Band, who we now know as Cheap Trick (when they're not touring as Meatloaf), and I'm sure you recall their biggest hit, "Hit Me With Your Best Shot", a song covered by Tom Petty in 2018.

They're talking about her on my local morning news. Apparently, she was one of the first, if not the first, restauranteurs to allow dogs in their establishment.

They also showed a picture she released on her 97th birthday, although it was only of her face, she seemed very chipper.

The story is that she got sick soon after her birthday party. How much you want to bet somebody gave a bug to her at the party?  I've had a long-standing rule, if me or my kids are sick, no parties (especially for the old people in our family).

That stage show is actually on YouTube. There's no live video, just the audio portion with some still pics. Stanton was in his glory, talked about one last show in July and one last book to be written. Very poignant stuff. Makes you think about your own mortality.

Irons replied that he was aware of that, to which von Bulow quipped: "I don't suppose you've been asked to play either of them, have you?"

I really liked Dr. John's album Babylon when it was first released back in 1968. Though I was careful not to show my friends that Sonny and Cher's names were printed on the back of it.  (Actually they didn't appear on the album.  They did give Dr. John their left over studio time though, and that helped him make the album.)

Billy Drago, one of my favorite movie 'bad guys' has died at the age of 73.  Billy starred in a lot of movie and television shows.  I really liked him in the Chuck Norris movie “Delta Force 2: The Colombian Connection” as drug lord Ramon Cota.  RIP, Billy.

Beth became a licensed bail bondsman at age 29 (the youngest in Colorado history). This record has since been broken by her step-daughter, Lyssa Chapman, who became a licensed bounty hunter at age 19.

From the Dallas News
 
Rick Perry: Now that Ross Perot is gone, I can tell this story

Rick Perry, Contributor
This week, the nation remembers Ross Perot for his success in business, his two independent White House bids and his no-nonsense, straight Texas talk. His love of country, larger-than-life personality and generosity are all part of his legacy that will live on. But there is another little-known part of the life of Ross Perot that should be told now that he is gone. He was a tireless, but private, supporter of our wounded veterans.
During my time as governor of this great state, I had the honor and privilege of knowing countless warriors who stepped forward to serve in Iraq and Afghanistan and returned home with horrific wounds of war. U.S. Army Cpl. Alan Babin Jr. is one such hero.
While serving in Iraq in 2003 as a medic in the 82nd Airborne, Alan was shot in the abdomen while tending to a fallen comrade. While Alan survived his injury, he faced a long and difficult road to recovery, complicated by the onset of meningitis and a stroke-induced coma that left him confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life.
On the one-year anniversary of his wounding, I joined Alan and his family for a small gathering. He was still in very bad shape, neurologically and physically incapacitated. When I asked his mother, Rosie,  what I could do to help, she said she was eager to get him out of the hospital and back home, but struggling with the prospect of transporting Alan to his many medical visits.
I knew there was one person to call: Ross Perot. What happened next still amazes me to this day. The next morning, Ross personally called Rosie and made arrangements for his plane to pick up the Babins in Austin and fly them to Dallas where Alan could be seen by leading neurologists at Zale Lipshy University Hospital.
When the hospital elevators opened, Ross was standing there to meet Alan personally and ensure that he got the best of care. Later that day, Rosie was handed a key to a hotel room across the street so she could be close to Alan throughout his extended stay.
It didn't stop there.
When Rosie returned to the family home in Round Rock for her daughter's prom, Ross visited privately with Alan to sit with him and make sure he wasn't alone.

Ross Perot visits wounded veteran Alan Babin. (Rosie Babin)
After three weeks in Dallas, Alan and Rosie returned home to Austin on Ross' plane. When they arrived home, a fully customized luxury conversion van equipped with a wheelchair lift was waiting for them in their driveway.
Later when they spoke, Ross told Rosie two things: "One phone call is all you ever need to make if you need anything. Now, I want you to focus on Alan." And that is exactly what happened.
In 2005, when Alan needed to return to Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Ross flew the Babins to Washington, D.C., and arranged for a private ambulance to pick him up on the tarmac and transport him to the hospital.
Today, Alan and his parents live together in a specially adapted smarthome provided by the generosity of another great champion of our wounded warriors, Gary Sinise. Thanks to the support of patriots like Gary and Ross, Alan has progressed in his limited physical ability to become an accomplished adaptive skier, hand cyclist and golfer.
Over the years, Rosie has come to call those who rushed to Alan's aid "Alan's Angels," but the title "Big Angel" is and will forever be reserved for Ross Perot.
While alive, Ross would have shunned any effort to grant him credit for his support of Alan and the untold others he quietly helped through unimaginably challenging times. But now that he is gone, everyone should know the quality of the man that our state, our nation and our wounded veterans have lost.
God bless Ross Perot.
Rick Perry is the former governor of Texas.

What a cousin to have and what an awful affliction to die from.

Reading up on his story, it sounds like he held it together, at least mentally, pretty much until the last couple of weeks. I'm sure his family appreciated that.

Actually a good move for him getting out of Los Angeles. I looked up his neighborhood and, while not in The Lakes region, it's still in a nice community of Summerlin. Great library there, lots of parks, lots of culture.  I see the move was in March, he was still well enough to sing then.

I knew of London, but never knew of him by name.  Sounds like a level dude.  And no...  Nikki Sixx wasn't a skilled musician, just did what it took.  All those MIT pricks were jealous 😁

@Bart Ell, doncha know that Huff is already busy talking with Jeffrey Epstein via his fake ghostbox... claiming Epstein confessed to everything.  Hell would have frozen over twice before Epstein would have confessed, whether while still alive or in spirit. He was just not that kind of sociopathic personality to ever confess for any reason in any way other than to get himself a cheapo easy-out deal.

I don't think you can get lower than Huff, it wouldn't be easy to do.  :P

He did not masturbate to the Sears catalog but he did ejaculate onto the bras his mother bought at Sears.

Jessi was trying to break a speed record in a "jet-powered land-speed car" that she'd previously driven to 483mph...

There's also been confusion about her age. I've seen 36 and 39. 🤷

I know me my Beverly Hills 90210, who is this guy?

I used to take young Japanese ladies on the 90210 tour through Pasadena, by the Spelling house (I had a friend who was a PA to Mr. Spelling and got me access a couple of times to the driveway, not inside the house or even close). We would also go by the beach house...

It is on those tours that I learned that a single meal from Barney's Beanery could feed four 25 year old women from the Land of the Rising Sun.  Bob Newhart used to walk his dog at that park near the Spelling mansion.  I only saw him once oh, that was cool.

Eh, nevermind.

Thanks for posting this, @sean92008. I was very saddened this morning to hear this, she was a real pioneer as an early woman news reporter. She was intelligent, did good research, and was highly respected. In addition she had a very interesting life which she didn't speak about till later on iirc. I will miss her voice and her mood of reason when reporting. +1

I liked DS9. All except the alternate universe episodes. But I feel the same way about Voyager and TNG. The alternate universe and the holodeck episodes were just ways for the writers to be lazy and not have to follow the story arc. I guess that is why I think Enterprise is my favorite.

Glad I'm not the only one that feels it.  Something changed hard at 50.  Up to then, I could relate to young people until I was almost 50.  But now there is a huge generation gap.

And it seems like yesterday I learned a childhood friend was getting her master's in psychology.  She just retired after 25 years working for the prison system.  I didn't even know.  I still think of her as a graduate student.  OMG.

I'm a great-aunt now. 

In my 40s, people didn't notice me because I reminded them of their parents, or who has use for a matron anyway.  But if you think that's bad, 50 is even worse because not only do they have no use for me, but I'm also in their way.  They actually aim to physically push past me, and sometimes there are collisions when walking, even though I look in the direction I'm going so everyone knows which way I'm headed.  But they have no time for analyzing body language.  They just bowl you over.  I hope I never did that when I was young.

I need to move to a retirement community ASAP.  Aging would be so much easier to handle without kids slamming into me.  Maybe I would be one of the young ones.  I hear Scottsdale is nice...

I turn 73 in December, work 3 days a week in the state headquarters for two veterans organizations that help our vets and service connected disabled vets get the benefits they are entitled to and earned by their service, webmaster two sites, am editor and creator of 3 state newsletters/newspapers, travel for the VSOs I work for, and then take care of home and family, plus enjoy our college and pro football teams and make a couple or more fun week long trips to Orlando, Texas, and such.

My list of health problems rival Falkie and I may have to do some things slower, but I’ve never had to worry about younger ones or middle aged folks running me over. And at my age, we’ve earned the right to say what we want and to hell with those who think otherwise.

Why am I relating all of this? Because it all comes down to our attitude about what we want our lives to be and not accepting less. 50’s are a great age to be...embrace the time, utilize it to the fullest. It is all in your hands. To me, 50 year olds are still kids (or anyone under 65)...so, kiddies, you still got a lot of life left to live. Go for it.

Kim Shattuck

It's been 21 months or so since I last talked with Kim.  She agreed that I can't sing.  (I gave her and and a bandmate from Pandoras a demo for a hopeful reunion album, hoping that its Monkees-like vibe would appeal to the Monkees fans in the band.)

I remember her off color comments, comments about stained panties and a flabby ass.  She was a cool girl rocker, she could dish it out and she could take it.  Except when you brought up the Pixies.  She was pretty resilient but I think she got short-changed or treated like shit by them.

ALS took her.  She didn't say shit about it a couple of months after her diagnosis.  Pandoras, Muffs, Pixies.  I was encouraging her to do a Pandoras supergirlgroup reunion. They we're having a lot of fun playing people's backyard parties.

This video is from a short time before her diagnosis. The record was Derrick Anderson's, he was the touring bassist for The Bangles until a couple of years ago.  "The girls" helped him out on his solo record and agreed to do the video for it as well.  Kim is on the far right, in the grey skirt, jumping around, goofing on Pete Townsend a bit.

Goodnight Gidget, cowbellbongos dude.



Fun times...

I loved that video!  Today's singers can't pull that off nowadays.  Between egos, publishing, rights and labels, it just won't happen with such skilled performers.  Hacks, yes, maybe...

I also love the sequins burning the kinescope.  In addition to potentially causing epileptic seizures, I can go X-Files on this and think that some secret braille code is being flashed across the screen...

Oh, and I would be remiss if I don't mention this...  I have impure thoughts seeing Diahann Carroll there... She remained hot into the 2000s.

I don’t think that’s kinescope. It looks more like quad videotape. The early television camera tubes didn’t have a very large contrast range.

In this modern world of auto tune and electronics, why worry about singing ability? Go for tits and ass, which can also be enhanced.

I didn't think of that, maybe because I associate streaks with the burn.  I wonder if the show's costumers thought about that knowing what the on screen effect was....

Louisiana native, author Ernest Gaines died today at age 86. He has been one of my favorite authors all my grown up life. He was actually born on a plantation not far from the town I was born in. I met him in person at a book signing for his novel “A Lesson Before Dying”. He took the time to talk with each of us hometown folks. An amazing man and great loss to the literary world.

With everything so accessible, even from 40 years ago, 50 years ago, we see them all the time and they're still in our consciousness.  I have DS9 in my list of recently watched shows.

I still watch Gunsmoke, the half-hour versions in black and white. The kids of the actors and actresses are dying of old age!

ST has lost 3 in a week...

It was 39 years ago tonight plus a couple of hours since John Lennon was assassinated. Still on the top of consciousness.   I was listening to side two of Abbey Road that night.  From the point that the phone rang, and counting back, I believe that the song You Never Give Me Your Money was playing when John was being shot.

Not really a “celebrity” death, but something worth mentioning because of how much it touched all of us in Louisiana and the Tiger Nation. Earlier before the Peach Bowl game, LSU Defensive Coach Steve Ensminger’s daughter-in-law was among those killed in a small plane crash in Lafayette, LA. They had been on their way to the Peach Bowl. Coach O was the one who broke the news to Coach Ensminger. God bless him for having the strength and courage to stay at his job in coaching our Tigers to a spectacular win tonight. Our thoughts and prayers to him and the family in this sad time.

You say this guy "stayed at his job" to coach a game after learning the wife to his son had just been killed?

But at least this guy has his priorities straight. I mean, had it been the defensive coach who did such a thing the guy would have been an asshole, but he was the offensive coach. Go team.

Seriously, there must be some kind of miscommunication somewhere? I hope and believe. Probably my misunderstaning. Right? Has to be!

David "Boomer" Wells went to the same high school as Don Larsen in Point Loma. Both pitched perfect games for the Yankees. What are the odds?

As a wee lad, my piano teacher told me she gave piano lessons to Don Larsen (that neighborhood was maybe 10 miles away).  Unfortunately, that "connection" didn't make me more interested in playing crappy lesson songs...  She was way old and way out of touch.

But he was a "celebrity"!  The term celebrity is clearly not a measure of ones character. Although - was it ever?
Oh no.  It's not a measure of character in most cases.  I just can't stand the excessive adulation for these people.  I mean...Iron Maiden is my favorite band but if Bruce Dickinson died I would think "Oh damn, that sucks."  That's it.  I just don't understand how people put so much stock in admiration of a celebrity to the point they treat them as saints.

Dude.  I had an employee years ago that tried to call out of work because the singer from Sublime died.  WTF?  I made him come in and all he did was cry about 30 minutes into his shift.  I mean...seriously!!!???

Oh that always made me laugh. Too bad Shaq started kissing Kobe's ass later.  Gotta stick to you principles ya know.  I would like to see a meme where Shaq digs Kobe up from his grave and puts his ass on his face, then plays this rap song.  It would please me.

Sublime? I had to Ooogle them!  slightly off topic but still deadly..  months ago when we were finishing up the hotel we were doing one of my employees had his phone and Bluetooth as our musical selection throughout the day. Everything was going good and his musical selection was everything from Iron maiden to The doors whom I love. All the sudden - out of the fucking blue - BAMM!  The theme from FRIENDS COMES ON!!  Monica and Chandler and all that shit!!!  It was in his regular shuffle!!  He does good work and I still have him but I made him delete the song that day under threat of termination.  all the electricians working around us stopped what they were doing as if to wonder who the gay retarded workers might be.  Good!

Kobe was no Roberto Clemente or Joe Delaney and he certainly wasn't near Jackie Robinson.

He is the rapist of a 19-year old who had his legal team attack her with lies and innuendo.

I wonder if garbage men were called that because they used to hoist the full metal garbage cans into the backs of the garbage trucks?  In all my life, I never once saw a garbage woman hoisting the trash.  Nowadays, of course, the trucks have mechanical grippers that grab and dump the garbage containers.

@sean92008  Bringing up Clemente struck a nerve.  Not because of you.  It's because I was listening to a radio show out of Pittsburgh and they were comparing Kobe to Clemente and not only did it blow my mind, but it made me sick.  Trying to correlate this tragedy with the one that claimed Clemente's life.  Hmmmm....let's see.  Kobe flew in a helicopter because he wanted to get to where he was going faster and claimed his 6' 6" frame was uncomfortable riding in a car.  Bullshit.  Clemente died in an airplane crash delivering supplies to earthquake victims.  Yeah...same thing.   ::)

In fact I have seen several online headlines asking if Kobe Bryant is this generation's Roberto Clemente.  Goddamn I wanna puke.  >:(  I mean...REALLY!!!??

That's truly sickening.  I'd say unbelievable, but it really no longer is.

It appears we are entering the phase of this story where truth doesn't matter, only continuation of the narrative - with the hacks seeing an opportunity to grab attention by either being the most outrageous or most provocative, and the mal-educated to expose themselves.

What makes no sense is that, at least on Twitter, all these liberal people who make liberal posts are praising a guy who settled with a nineteen-year-old over rape "allegations."

He admitted that he "thought" she was consenting even when she said "no" multiple times. No means no only when it fits the MeToo agenda.

I have only heard one sportscaster address the Colorado incident directly. I also heard a sports agent talking about him specifically. He was given advice on how to improve his public image. Community involvement, his sports program, going to church, etc. was all an orchestrated attempt to change public opinion.  He may have turned into the guy he was portraying, but still... Fuck him. Hope he survived while the others died instantly. I hope he burned slowly and polluted the environment more than the others.

There are a lot of reasons I no longer watch sports (ok, I did watch the NFL playoffs this year, recorded them and buzzed thru commercials.  I also watch the Tour De France, although not last year or the year before).

They weren't hiring people based on the quality of their character, their skill sets or their knowledge... I remember somebody on sports radio actually saying that, with their getting in bed with ABC-Disney, that they were the dumping ground for some of the corporate quota stuff.

I wonder, if like me, the cord-cutting was based more on the biased content being shoved down the coaxial lines?  After I cut the cable, I got rather creative in finding illegal ways to download their content too. I rarely watch any illegal content but, on occasion, I have.  I use free apps on my Roku TV to watch almost anything I really want.

In the dorms we had free cable, and it included ESPN.  The early years featured boxers with records like 3-12.
 

Here are some of the ways they ruined sports:

- Too many interviews, TMI regarding these miscreant players.  Before cable they'd interview the star of the game for a few minutes and that was it

- They started playing up stars.  It was no longer the Cetlics or Bulls are coming to town, it was Larry Bird or Michael Jordan is coming to town.  This encouraged more selfish play in what were supposed to be team sports

- Highlight selection.  Home runs, slam dunks, etc.  No slick double plays, assist, blocks, stellar defense etc.  This encouraged more selfish play in what were supposed to be team sports

- Injecting politics.  Massive turn off.  It was bad enough to do that - but to make it even worse, it's the PC and fake news variety.

I loved Australian Rules Football and rugby.  It was sport at non-traditional times, times when I would be vegging out or trying to kill time.  Same thing with Teletubbies, late Saturday wake up time would watch during breakfast prep.

Did ESPN bring anything new to coverage? Fox did with digital overlays and a continuous score, etc...

When it was over he told her "If you tell anyone it will be the last thing you do.". The rape was so violent that Natalie started bleeding and had to go the hospital. Her mother discouraged her from filing a complaint because she worried it would hurt her movie career. At the time Kirk Douglas was one of the most powerful stars in Hollywood. He later admitted that he had been a womanizer and an alcoholic but he's never confessed to rape. Natalie was traumatized by the assault and spent years in therapy. Friends said she would "shudder" every time she heard Douglas's name.

https://abc7.com/5912587

On February 7, 2020, while walking near Venice Boulevard and Shell Avenue, in Venice, Los Angeles, Bean was struck by two drivers, with the second vehicle striking him fatally. "The car coming westbound did not see him and clipped him and he went down," said Los Angeles Police Department Captain Brian Wendling. "A second vehicle was coming up, was distracted by people trying to slow him down and then looked up and then a second traffic collision occurred and that one was fatal."

Hit by 2 cars

The second car that hit him was the fatal one. Apparently, and I believe this, the driver was distracted by all sorts of people trying to stop him so he wouldn't hit the old guy... So, instead of looking forward as if he were driving normally he was looking to his sides where everybody was jumping up and down.

On the topic of unintended consequences...

During the shootout situation at that mosque in New Zealand or Australia, as soon as the gunman went to a different room to start shooting other people, everybody started moaning and groaning which only prompted him to return and shoot them more. I saw an interview where a young guy at that mall in Thailand is recounting he told everybody in the store to be quiet so as not to attract the gunman.  Smart dude, he's got a future.

I had to put my dog, Ginger, down today.  I'm sad and heartbroken but also relieved as it had been a long and steady decline over the last year.  She had reached the point where she could no longer walk and had been crying a lot over the last few days.   She wasn't a celebrity but she meant a lot to me and so I'm commenting on her death here.  She was 16.  I'll see you on the other side, girl. Have fun running in the valleys on the other side of the Rainbow bridge.  I'll meet you there in 30 or 40 years.

One of the guys that testified to Congress recently had his wife die on the freeway in Southern California.  He was testifying either to corruption or the Constitution. basically, you was testifying about the problems with the deep state.

Basically, if you are conservative, speak the truth about the left or have damning evidence against Democrats, your life is at risk. Seth Rich is a prime example...

RIP, Kenny.  Loved the stuff he did with the First Edition and also liked some of his later hits like Gambler. Lucille and Coward of the County.  I felt he sold out when he started singing those syrupy Lionel Ritchie love songs.  Another mistake he made was the terrible plastic surgery he had.

RIP, Kenny.  Loved the stuff he did with the First Edition and also liked some of his later hits like Gambler. Lucille and Coward of the County.  I felt he sold out when he started singing those syrupy Lionel Ritchie love songs.  Another mistake he made was the terrible plastic surgery he had. It made him look like a freak.  God bless him.

Knew when to fold them.

Born Sep. 23, 1938 in Jackson, Miss., Lester grew up working on his grandfather’s farm. He earned a degree in chemistry at the University of Mississippi and taught in Oklahoma for a few years before making the move to Hollywood. Lester landed his role in “Green Acres” in 1965, beating out the competition because he was the only actor who could actually milk a cow.

Whatfinger.com, Oann.com, knewz.com, bonginoreport.com

Speaking of OANN...

their studios are really close to the very first Price Club which inspired all of the rage of membership stores, ultimately led to Costco being established and ultimately buying them out.

There's a guy on oann named Graham Ledger. The dude is a complete sleaze. He was married to an old friend/classmate of mine and, how do I say this colorfully...  He let his dick do his thinking way too much.

Namely, he pursued an owner of one of those house-based live-in care facilities...  She was a complete sleaze and fraud. Graham loved her tits...

He also had an organization called 858 Tea Party. he used the name but he was not officially affiliated with the the actual Tea Party movement.  I'm sure he was raising funds on the up-and-up 🙄🙄🙄.

So, to sum it up I don't watch that network.  Ledger's behavior is not some hidden secret thing.  Photos on the interwebs existed.

North Korea Reports Kim Jong Un Is 'Most Alive Person In Universe'

PYONGYANG—The Democratic People's Republic of Korea reported today that Kim Jong Un is not dead and in fact is "the most alive person in the universe."

"American fake news says Supreme Leader is dead, but we found that he was more alive than anyone ever in history," said a spokesperson. "If he lies in still vegetative state, it is only because he is stuffed so full of life like a big meal and needs time to properly digest all that life. So much life. Such great life."

According to the official statement released by the Korean Central News Agency, the dictator is not dead but is more alive than life itself.  "Think of the most alive thing ever: a rambunctious toddler, a blooming flower, an angry bear. Pulsing, teeming with life: that is the very essence of our Supreme Leader."

"Doctors were amazed at how alive he is. Most alive person ever," the spokesperson said. He went on to say that Kim Jong Un ran a fifty-mile marathon this morning in under twelve seconds just because he had so much life in him he needed to burn off. "And after that, our great and glorious leader flapped his wings and flew to the sun, bringing down sunbeams from the heavens that our people might have the gift of fire."

"All hail the glorious and most definitely living Kim Jong Un!"

Hamilton Bohannon - 78

He played the drums for Stevie Wonder in 1964, and that gig led him to getting hired as a bandleader by Motown Records. His group Bohannon & The Motown Sound toured with several stars, including Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross and the Supremes, the Temptations and the Four Tops.

Sorry to see that Florian has passed.  He was pretty much the head honcho of the band.  I remember being in a Hollywood music store back in 1970 and seeing an album cover of some Nazi looking guys with bright red lipstick on.  Quite eye catching but I wouldn't actually hear their music for another three or four years, when Autobahn was released.  RIP, Florian.

Lots of the people we grew up with are crossing over.  Happens to every generation, I suppose.  Plus there are many celebs who die that you may have never heard of.  I don't know a lot of modern day actors and musicians.  There are lots more people in the world now, and probably more celebs, so perhaps more of them are dying?  I wonder.

(They were already on their way out of business, they closed their Encinitas ($$$$ zip code) location even though the place was full every day of the week. Bad business management.)

If I'm not mistaken, the very first one had opened near the San Diego Sports Arena/Sea World.  Even as a teenager, me and my friends would drive down there and eat the place under.

Back in the old country, I posted about the death of Hamp Swain. Hamp and Richard played in the saxophone section of old Ballard High School in Macon. Hamp went on to work in radio and made Richard’s first recordings at WBML radio. Now Hamp’s in the radio hall of fame and Richard’s in the music ones.
Back in the 80s Richard was living in a hotel in Los Angeles. You’d call him and he would answer in a high-pitched voice, and you’d have to act like you thought it was the maid in asking to speak to Mr. Penniman.

Excuse my ramblings. Just a few rememberances. He was an amazing guy.

Yeah, it could be a life changer...  Turns out Mary Kay Latourneau (sp?), at 11 years old, was in a pool where her 3-year old brother drowned.  Many people through the years thought that she had stunted maturity.  At 4, well that's not likely but there may be some underlying guilt later on.

I'm reminded of a UK singer who was with family swimming when a speeding boat hit her.  A straight drowning isn't typical, so injuries/medical conditions must be involved or it was suicide.

She probably dove in to take a piss and then something went wrong. She could have hit her head or maybe the water was colder than she expected and she gasped taking in water instead of air.  I doubt a mother would leave her child in a boat to commit suicide.

It's reported that there is only about 3-9 inches of visibility under the water. Also that the bottom is covered in debris and trees. It's possible she got caught on something...
Either way, right now they are treating it as a possible drowning instead of a missing person.
