RIP John Steed

I used to sneak back into the living room, after Momdigr had gone to bed, and had put me to bed, to watch old 'The Avengers' reruns with Popdigr.

Rigg. Not 'Riggs'. And, that's Ms. Rigg to you.

ETA: And that was well before my teens. I was prolly 8, or, 9.

OK, I should have said "... precocious teenager's thing ..." ;)

I used to watch them with my dad too. I think we both had a thing for Emma Peel.

A lot of it was The Gentleman Ass-Kicker, I have to admit.

She's been living proof that a woman needs neither a big rack nor a lot of thigh gap to be considered incredibly sexy.

Chris Squire passed away today. Bassist fro Yes since the beginning. The only member of the band to be on every album. He was one of THE BEST bassists ever... IMO. The concerts next month will be quite different without him. Thanks for the 30+ years of memories. RIP sir.

wolf 06-29-2015 02:26 AM

I was on the phone with an insurance company today doing a precert (convincing the insurance that the rehab deserves to be paid for treating a one of their subscribers. I was listening to Yes and had it on pretty low ... but I guess that Roundabout is pretty distinctive ... anyway the care manager said, "am I hearing Yes? Why are you listening to Yes?" So I told her it was because of Chris Squire's death. She hadn't heard and got quite upset ... she was a huge fan and had even gone to England to see them, and is in one of their videos. I did apologize for being a bit brusque with the death notification.

And I got the treatment authorized. I don't know if this was related in any way to the fan-sharing.

One of the greats.

Gravdigr 07-12-2015 01:25 PM

I hated his character (Robin Colcord, sp?) on 'Cheers'. Decent enough actor, just didn't like the character. I guess that's a compliment, now that I think about it, because the character was supposed to be unlikeable.

I'd love to have seen him on stage. By all accounts he was mesmerising.

He was great as Sherlock's actor friend in Elementary. He was only in two episodes - only a couple of scenes altogether, but I loved his character.

Clodfobble 07-12-2015 02:30 PM

Lord Marbury was our favorite character on The West Wing. So bitingly dismissive.

Gravdigr 07-15-2015 02:14 PM

That's pretty cool.

My only brush with fame was when I met Dennis Weaver in the Nashville airport when I was ten. (ETA: He was about thirteen feet tall.)

A buddy of mine does own Roy Orbison's old refrigerator.

Oh, and Momdigr and I once ate supper across the aisle from Ronnie McDowell at an Applebee's.

I know!

So far all I've heard is that it was "natural causes". She was only 72 FFS. My Dad is 75 and if he dropped down dead tomorrow I'd think he was gone too soon.

Jean Redpath

Well, this bums my stone. I didn't realize she died last year on August 21st. I grew up listening to her music.



"As I was walking o'er yon hill
It was a pleasant evening
'Twas there I spied a bonny lass
Skipping barefoot through the heather

And oh but she was neatly dressed
She needed neither cap nor feather
She was the queen among them all
Skipping barefoot through the heather

Her gown, it was a bonny blue
Her petticoat, a pheasant color
And in between the stripes was seen
Shining bales of blooming heather

Says I then, "Lassie, will you go wi' me?
Will you go wi' me and leave the heather?
It's silks and satins you shall have
If you'll wi' me and leave the heather"

Says she, "Kind sir, your offer's good
It's well I ken you will deceive me
So gin I gie my love all o'er
It's better no I've never seen ye"

And oh but she was neatly dressed
She needed neither cap nor feather
She was the queen among them all
Skipping barefoot through the heather"

Inasmuch as falling asleep on the balcony during a major heatwave and then falling/being hit by stroke could be considered natural.

Yogi was definitely one of a kind.

His real name was Lawrence Peter Berra, and he was 90.

Only a few blocks away from Yogi's house was the childhood home of Buzz Aldrin - 2nd man on the moon.

Well, I guess it's finally over.
