There was a legal tussle between his adult kids and his second wife over whether or not to continue giving food and water in his last months.

Cancer sucks

Chewing tobacco is just plain stupid.

Just read that. He played all of his 20 year MLB career for the Padres.

Heaven's band just got a lot better.

That should give the angels a break from all that kickass comedy and drama they've been enjoying lately.

I just read that Meshach Taylor died.

I liked this guy. He was a pretty good actor.

Fuck cancer.

I really liked him too. I think Designing Women did some groundbreaking stuff for its time. Meschach Taylor (Anthony) was a big part of that, and he was so funny.

I can't find any good short clips or even good quotes of parts I'm thinking of. One was where some woman snidely asked him if he was related to Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy (Anthony's last name was Bouvier) and he went off on some reply about yeah, she's his sister and something about since she married Ari...etc. Another memorable one was when he ended up camping with the girls for some reason.
He and Delta Burke (Suzanne Sugarbaker) and he and Alice Ghostley (Bernice Clifton) had great comedic chemistry.

So sad...

Tommy Ramone dead at 62. :(

Tom Erdelyi emigrated to America in 1957 and grew up in Forest Hills, Queens, where he played with guitarist John Cummings later Johnny Ramone in Tangerine Puppets. He went on to study engineering and worked at the Record Plant (where he assisted on a 1969 Jimi Hendrix session) and other facilities.

Another one? Damn.

Elaine Stritch - dead at 89.

Johnny Winter - dead at 70. The band just got a whole bunch better.

Griff 07-17-2014 09:22 PM

Whoa.

I saw Elaine Stritch in her one woman show in 2001. A great performer and story teller.

Amen, Johnny. RIP.
