In Memorium...
« on: May 05, 2009, 10:56:19 PM »
I've just learned that actor Dom Deluise has recently passed away.
He is best known for the comedies he made with Burt Reynolds-
Cannonball Run 1 & 2, The End, and Smokey and the Bandit 2  to
name a few.

He also did the voice of Itchy Itchiford in All Dogs Go To Heaven.

His wife and 3 sons (all actors in their own right) were with him when he passed away.
He was 75. :'(

David Carridine, who most of us know from the 1970's TV show "Kung Fu" was found dead in his hotel room in Bankok, Thailand.  Police say he apparently hanged himself.  He was 72 years old.

David was the son of legendary character actor John Carradine, and brother of actors Keith and Robert Carradine.

My sympathy to all his family, friends and fans.

The man is dead.  The legend lives on. 
Death, for him, was just a morphism from man to legend.

Its been confirmed that Michael Jackson has died at the age of 50. No matter what you thought of him... this is awful news. :( He was a legend in his own right and made some fantastic music. He is a real loss to the music industry and things will not be the same without Wacko Jacko  :'(

You're right Chrissy.
He had major issues, but he was most definately The King of Pop
and a huge part of my childhood.  It's a terrible loss. :'(

RIP Michael. The man was amazing; I learned how to dance to his music. I'm devastated. He will be missed.

it's probably strange but I do remember Farah from Charlie's Angels, mostly because she was referred to in a Turkish comedy.  I'm really sorry to see her pass away.

As for MJ, I remember buying many of his MCs, and enjoying them.  Lately, he was in a lot of trouble, and I'm in no way qualified to make a verdict on these issues, but he was a good part of my youth and I'm sorry he passed away.

RIP Farah, MJ and all who died yesterday.

I'm sorry for MJ. I think his loss means a lot to the musics industry.

June has turned out to be and depressing month...

JUst found out that we've lost two more in the entertainment industry -

Gale Storm, best known from the 1950's sitcom "My Little Margie" died June 27th.
She was 87 years old.


Also, impressionist Fred Travalena passed away June 28th from lymphoma.
He was 66 years old.
Often called "Mr. Everybody" because he could imitate the voices of almost anyone,
from actors to presidents.

They will be missed.

Karl Malden died Wednesday at the age of 97. He was really old but never the less its a great loss the the acting community. For those of you who are unfamiliar with him, he played Mitch in A Streetcar Named Desireand was also in baby doll, pollyanna, the west wing, Patton and tons more brilliant pictures
