Both Dennis Hopper and Gary Coleman were known for their talent and achievements, as well as their defiance to the Hollywood norm. For all of these, I will remember them fondly, and feel sad that they have left us.

Jimmy Dean died last week, age 81. He is a far distant cousin, actually, although i have never met him. an uncle of mine shared a plane ride with him once, and they shored up the family history and lineage enough to fill in some gaps.
famous for sausage, and one song in particular.
"i load 16 tons, what do i get, another day older and deeper in debt, st peter doncha call me cause i can'
t go, i owe my soul to the company store."
he lived well, and was a kind man.

Nobody mentioned Tony Curtis or Stephen J. Cannell, both of them passed in late Sept.

It's not what you know, it's what people think you know.

This post is from awhile ago, but I just wanted to mention that I love that song.

I feel guilty for thinking this, but how come all obituaries are practically the same? So-and-so lived a happy life, is "survived by" blah blah blah, some quote from the Bible, "We will miss you, Johnny, brother, dad, grandpa"... Not that I don't respect the daed or the grief that their loved ones are suffering through, but don't you think that the dearly departed would be much more honoured if their obituary was something other than an emotionless, cookie-cutter mush?

cookie-cutter mush
That's one phrase I'd prefer not to read when on the topic of dead bodies.

But you're right. That's why my funeral's going to have clowns. Let's see how the blighters like making balloon animals in hell.

As always, no offence. Rest in peace.

Wasn't it Peter Sellers who had "I told you I was sick" put on his headstone?

I think we take death too seriously.

I have related requests that i be rolled out into the street and let the streetsweeper deal with me... no funeral.
ok, ok, as a rememberance, buy a wino a gallon of Mogan David Blackberry wine..
if you are the wino, all the better.

(side thought, recently saw a writing about an ad "Tombstone for sale, already marked K. G. Pobleughvist, one of a kind, won't last long"

Wow, 14 whole pages about death. Impressive.

With kids you spend the first 2 years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next 15 years telling them to sit down and be quiet.

Leslie Nielsen dead at 84.

"Surely you can't be serious."

"I am serious, and don't call me Shirley."

Elizabeth Edwards - dead at 61 of cancer. Rest in peace.

Take all sorrow out of life and you take away all richness, and depth, and tenderness. The capacity of sorrow belongs to our grandeur. It is the furnace that melts hearts together in love.
