It looks like I'll have to have a watch of Point Break in honor of Mr. Swaze's passing.  RIP, man!

I'm willing to admit this, I actually like GHOST.  It's one of the few chick flicks I actually like.  RIP Patrick Swayze

I know he was ill but it is still sad frown

Ghost was cool, I'm not sure why it is considered a chick-flick, there is plenty in it to appeal to men too.

While its usually a shock to learn that someone you knew of is dead (especially if they didn't seem all that old or self-destructive) its somehow worse if you find that they've been dead for quite some time.

In my case it was Dan Fogelberg, someone who I hadn't heard of in over 20 years and only really knew from a handfull of songs* he made in the early '80s. But they were songs that I liked, dammit, and still listen to regularly. So you can imagine my surprise when I was poking around in wikipedia the other day and discovered that not only was he dead, but that he had died almost two years ago!

Who's next, Mike Nesmith?   eek

* In particular:
  • Leader of the Band
  • Hard to Say
  • Run for the Roses
    and
  • Same Old Lang Syne
Oh well, cheers, Dan. And thanks for the memories.

I forgot Dan Fogelberg was dead too actually. Personally I think his best song is The Power of Gold. You should check it out.

I used to watch Soupy Sales on TV when I was growing up; he was hilarious & loved kids.  He will be missed.

Yeah double posting nah nah.
Carl Ballantine who starred as Gruber on McHale's navy with Ernest Borgnine, who was not from Tovah 9, passed away at the age of 92. He also had a comedy routine where he was a crap magician.

Funny guy.

If you were alive in the 80's you remember when MTV was cool.

You should also remember the game show Remote Control.

The host, Ken Ober died yesterday, of unknown causes....  He was complaining of a headache and "flu-like symptoms"

He helped launch the careers of Kari Whurer of Sliders fame, and comedian Colin Quinn.


He was 52.

I enjoyed watching that show; had a major crush on Kari Wuhrer.  Too bad; RIP Ken.

Also, Edward Woodard just passed away at the age of 79.  I can't remember the name of the TV series he was in, but he played an ex-cop/military who "solved people's problems".  Classically trained actor, very well known; you'd recognize him if you saw him.

The Equalizer. Good Show, better soundtrack. By Stewart Copeland of the Police.
Woodward was in the definitive 'Wicker Man'.

Do not forget Adam Sandler,who played Colin's cousin. He was much funnier back then, he had a fake tattoo on his neck. Remote Control had to be the first game show on MTV. All the contestants sat in easy chairs and when they were eliminated the wall opened up, the chair  slid off the stage and the contestants were roughed up. Clever show.


R.I.P Ken.

I will never forget Stick-pin Quinn!

Also, Ober was the one responsible for getting Dennis Leary his job with MTV.

The man was truly a visionary.

Gene Barry  who starred on TV as Bat Masterson and Amos Burke (Burke's Law), back in the '60's,  died on the 9th of December age 90.
Just think of an American Patrick Macnee. He was one dapper dude.

RIP Roy E. Disney

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091217/ap_on_en_mo/us_roy_disney_remembrance_1

He fought to help save Disney after Eisner ruined it.  He was the third share holder of the company, now Eisner and Bob Iger have control of it all.

I'd never heard of him till I saw the Pixar Story documentary. He seemed like a decent guy who was willing to stand up for what he believed in.

The world needs more people like that not less.

Nobody's reported on Brittany Murphy yet?

Something tells me fan girls wouldn't be that bothered.

Oh well, she's with Yivo now.
