John Lennon.

Gus Grissom, Ed White, Roger Chaffee (all the space program deaths get me, but these most of all, because they were the first, and I was a kid that lived, ate, and breathed the Apollo program. I miss purple Tang).

Graham Chapman... May he take his talents to death and back.

For those who don't know him, he was an actor for Monty Python.
Likely known in Holy Grail for his roles as:
King Arthur, God, middle head, and GUARD #2. ^_^

May the circus live on.

My favorite Chapman part:

(Castle Guard) "Who's the other one?"

(Chapman) "I am...and this is my faithful squire, Patsy".

I think the young and tragic ends affect me more than the old and died in his sleep or after a long illness type ... yes, I was saddended by the passing of George Burns and Bob Hope, but they had long and productive careers ...

Lennon, Harrison ... those were sad (although "young" isn't technically correct in either case.)

I don't have as much feeling for the young(er) and stupid, though ... like River Phoenix, John Belushi, anyone who threw away career and life for the sake of recreational chemicals.

None of your quotes were made by Graham Chapman.

Here's one of my favorite things Graham Chapman ever did...from The Meaning of Life.

Graham Chapman plays Harry Blackitt, and Eric Idle plays his wife Mrs. Blackitt.

========================
MR. HARRY BLACKITT: Look at them, bloody Catholics, filling the bloody world
up with bloody people they can't afford to bloody feed.

MRS. BLACKITT: What are we dear?

MR. BLACKITT: Protestant, and fiercely proud of it.

MRS. BLACKITT: Hmm. Well, why do they have so many children?

MR. BLACKITT: Because... every time they have sexual intercourse, they have
to have a baby.

MRS. BLACKITT: But it's the same with us, Harry.

MR. BLACKITT: What do you mean?

MRS. BLACKITT: Well, I mean, we've got two children, and we've had sexual
intercourse twice.

MR. BLACKITT: That's not the point. We could have it any time we wanted.

MRS. BLACKITT: Really?

MR. BLACKITT: Oh, yes, and, what's more, because we don't believe in all that
Papist claptrap, we can take precautions.

MRS. BLACKITT: What, you mean... lock the door?

MR. BLACKITT: No, no. I mean, because we are members of the Protestant
Reformed Church, which successfully challenged the autocratic power of the
Papacy in the mid-sixteenth century, we can wear little rubber devices to
prevent issue.

MRS. BLACKITT: What d'you mean?

MR. BLACKITT: I could, if I wanted, have sexual intercourse with you,...

MRS. BLACKITT: Oh, yes, Harry.

MR. BLACKITT: ...and, by wearing a rubber sheath over my old feller, I could
insure... that, when I came off, you would not be impregnated.

MRS. BLACKITT: Ooh!

MR. BLACKITT: That's what being a Protestant's all about. That's why it's
the church for me. That's why it's the church for anyone who respects
the individual and the individual's right to decide for him or herself.
When Martin Luther nailed his protest up to the church door in fifteen-
seventeen, he may not have realised the full significance of what he was
doing, but four hundred years later, thanks to him, my dear, I can wear
whatever I want on my John Thomas,... [sniff] ...and, Protestantism
doesn't stop at the simple condom! Oh, no! I can wear French Ticklers
if I want.

MRS. BLACKITT: You what?

MR. BLACKITT: French Ticklers. Black Mambos. Crocodile Ribs. Sheaths that
are designed not only to protect, but also to enhance the stimulation of
sexual congress.

MRS. BLACKITT: Have you got one?

MR. BLACKITT: Have I got one? Uh, well, no, but I can go down the road any
time I want and walk into Harry's and hold my head up high and say in a
loud, steady voice, 'Harry, I want you to sell me a condom. In fact,
today, I think I'll have a French Tickler, for I am a Protestant.'

MRS. BLACKITT: Well, why don't you?

MR. BLACKITT: But they-- Well, they cannot, 'cause their church never made
the great leap out of the Middle Ages and the domination of alien
episcopal supremacy.

NARRATOR #1: But, despite the attempts of Protestants to promote the idea of
sex for pleasure, children continued to multiply everywhere.

My favorite Chapman role was after he sobered up.

Cowboy singer Chris LeDoux died yesterday from cancer. He was the real deal - pure western through and through. Even people who normally dislike country music respected him, and there were as many Metallica t-shirts as Ropers at his shows. Not too much airplay in the age of country-rock-pop garbage, but there are a whole lot of hardass cowboys who are having to pretend they "got somethin in my eye" this morning.

Dammit.

If you get a chance, listen to "This Cowboy's Hat" to get an idea of what he sounded like at his peak.

The so sad news yesterday, Friday March 11th, as comic relief Red Nose Day was dawning we heard of the passing of Dave Allen and I was really moved to tears. He was honestly iconic in a world where cheap copies and mediocrity are the commonplace and he was so very much more than a comedian.

Dave Allen joyously celebrated his atheism but those who remember him will recall his parting words at the end of every programme. "Whoever he is, may your God go with you". Cheers Dave.

I remember him once saying that tonight he would change it and say "May my God go with ME". He was a riot, even for a Brit. I loved his Robin Hood skits and his immortal joke about the Phantom Piddler!

RIP Dave Allen.
