I know right? That's all he had to say. He nails the mannerisms and speech.

His regular work was far out enough that it passed as being produced by an extra-terrestrial.

Sundae 05-13-2014 08:28 AM

Damn.
Talented.

Sundae 05-28-2014 09:46 AM

Maya Angelou.
Gave me a different aspect on racism. Wrote amazingly accessible poetry.
An honest and beautiful black woman.

glatt 05-28-2014 09:55 AM

Oh, that's a sad one. I liked her. She was a good egg.

She came to my college when I was s student there and I got to hear her speak. I don't remember what she said, but she had this amazing presence.

orthodoc 05-28-2014 10:10 AM

What a loss for all of us.

Sundae 05-28-2014 10:17 AM

Oh just remembered a dream about you, Glatt...
Will post in the appropriate thread.

Envy you majorly that you heard her speak. She was one of my heroes.
I have two of her poems by heart, and more lines randomly.

Gravdigr 05-28-2014 11:22 AM

Oh, the passing of Maya Angelou got by me somehow.


ETA: Here's a sad commentary on my life: I don't personally know anyone who will know who Maya Angelou was. Ima test that notion, but, I'm betting it's true.:sniff:

I saw her speak live when i was in college then again years later with my mom. I'm so sad. :(

Gravdigr 05-28-2014 11:42 AM

Here is an excellent article on Maya Angelou.

In fact it is the best news article I've ever read on Yahoo.

footfootfoot 05-28-2014 12:48 PM

Hard to believe. 86 seems young to me.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
Maya Angelou

Just read this quote today. Smart woman.

Here's a couple I like:

One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.


A wise woman wishes to be no one's enemy; a wise woman refuses to be anyone's victim.

infinite monkey 05-28-2014 05:54 PM

Oh, and...

My life has been one great big joke, a dance that's walked a song that's spoke, I laugh so hard I almost choke when I think about myself.

Don't feel bad, none of the teachers I work with had heard of her either. Go STEM!

I know, so young!
Last I heard the Police were called to the scene of a sudden death at lunchtime today.

ETA, sorry the article says that. I heard it as an update on the original story on the radio.

Gravdigr 06-10-2014 02:50 PM

The Police reunited in the wake of Rik Mayall's passing?

Sting, Andy, and Stewart must have been really big fans.

That's effed up. STEM is good and all, but let's not forget the value of liberal arts. Sheesh. TEACHERS hadn't heard of her? Where'd they get their education...ITT or Miami Jacobs? :headshake

Paper or plastic?

Would you like fries with that?

I just read that Ruby Dee died last night.

She was 91.

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.

Tony Gwinn, HOF dead at 54

Cancer sucks

AND

Chewing tobacco is just plain stupid.

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

I just read that Meshach Taylor died.

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

Attachment 48307

Fuck cancer.

infinite monkey 06-29-2014 05:05 PM

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...

Griff 07-12-2014 09:33 AM

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.

Gravdigr 07-12-2014 03:43 PM

Another one? Damn.

Gravdigr 07-17-2014 05:23 PM

Elaine Stritch - dead at 89.

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

Griff 07-17-2014 10:22 PM

Whoa.

Sheldonrs 07-18-2014 12:47 PM

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

James Garner, dead at 86.

Man, I loved "The Rockford Files".

Hell, I think I liked everything I ever saw him in.

:sniff:

:blackr:

Gravdigr 07-20-2014 11:15 AM

I can remember, when I was a kid, I had to go to bed when Momdigr did. But, on Thursdays (I think, or whatever night it came on) I would stay awake till "The Rockford Files" came on, I'd hear his phone ringing at the intro, then get up and sneak back to the living room and watch with Popdigr til it went off, then sneak back to bed.

sexobon 07-20-2014 11:33 AM

One of my favorites, James Garner was certainly versatile. He further endeared himself by taking on roles in which his character was quick on the clever rather than quick on the trigger. A career well done.

glatt 07-20-2014 12:46 PM

Rockford files was so cool. He had that answering machine and the awesome trailer on the water.

Gravdigr 07-20-2014 12:54 PM

Well, he had a trailer.

And it was on the water...

glatt 07-20-2014 01:08 PM

The answering machine was way before anyone had them in the real world.

But really, he was what made that show cool

Griff 07-20-2014 01:51 PM

He was a good one. Loved Rockford Files as well.

xoxoxoBruce 07-20-2014 06:08 PM

In everything he was in, he was funny and never full of himself.

Only 63. Thought he was older.

infinite monkey 08-11-2014 08:00 PM

Depression takes another one. People who can survive anything...ANYTHING...can not always survive depression. It's sneaky and mean and the perception of it has to change. It's a disease. No one would ask for it. No one who suffers from it can just pull themselves up by their bootstraps and put on a happy face. Not even a comedic talent such as Robin Williams. They can try and try and try. Sometimes they can make it. Often they do not.

My heart breaks.

Nanoo Nanoo, Mr Williams. I thought you were one who humor could help.

This is just so fucking sad. :(

glatt 08-11-2014 08:13 PM

Sorry to hear this news. His poor family .
