Farewell Larry Flynt

Honestly. I hadn’t thought about Flynt in years and could’ve sworn he died earlier since he had been “quiet” throughout Orange Foolius’ reign. I was never a fan of his publication(s), strip clubs or brand in general because they were … Continue reading

RIP Marc Wilmore (belated)

Damned Twitter! Found out through fellow Producer Mike Reiss that Marc died last week from CV-19. Life is unfair all to often since Orange Foolius and his legions remain free and not in prison where they belong while a person … Continue reading

RIP: Larry King

I remember when Ted Turner plucked this guy from obscurity…I never heard of him. Made Larry a big deal interviewer guy. His show was usually something my old man listened to on long drives because he either was sick of … Continue reading

You may not recall his name, but Gregory was a frequent guest or recurring cast member in my SitComs I grew up with. The main one was Barney Miller as a detective who had to live with killing a suspect in … Continue reading

RIP: Mira Furlan

More people know her from Lost, another boring-ass, disappointing JJ Abrams shit show. The rest of us will forever love her as Ambassador Delenn on Babylon 5, the Sci-Fi program which had consequences and real intrigue while the other two Star Trek shows … Continue reading

A belated farewell to (Adobe) Flash

This browser plug-in to make animation and simple games work kept the Internet from being 99% dominated by porno; today it’s probably in the 80% department. I honestly don’t know what the real numbers are but I do consider 99% … Continue reading

Burn in hell Sheldon Adelson

He was a real life C. Montgomery Burns since he and his flaks call him a “patriot,” since their definition means, a person who feels they have the right to piss on other Americans’ human rights, legal rights and freedom … Continue reading

It’s a pisser that Tanya passed with some embarrassment, first she’s dead, then she’s and oh wait, she’s dead. Well, I want to give Tanya some dignity via my site even if it borders on minuscule in the grand scheme … Continue reading

RIP: Dawn Wells

I thought Dawn was the last cast member to pass away but Tina Louise (Ginger) is alive and well in New York. That’s good. It’s still sad to lose Dawn thanks to her being the iconic Mary Ann which gives … Continue reading

RIP David Lander

To my generation, he was Squiggy on Laverne & Shirley. Whenever the show needed that comedic answer to “what else could happen?” you’d hear his signature “hello,” as he and Lenny (Michael McKean) entered Laverne and Shirley’s basement apartment. I knew … Continue reading

RIP Alex Trebek

If there’s an afterlife, poor Alex is now being mobbed by a million senior citizens like my grandmother who religiously watched Jeopardy. That game show, her soaps and Lawrence Welk. It was just easier to hand her the remote than to argue. … Continue reading

RIP Sean Connery

2020 just couldn’t take a break could it, can’t let us enjoy a limited Halloween and have a little pause before the shitstorm election. I know Sean was 90ish yet I didn’t know he had been ill recently. I’m glad … Continue reading

RIP: The Amazing Randi

Before Mythbusters there was the Amazing Randi hitting the talk-show circuit in the Seventies and Eighties (definitely that decade). Although Randi didn’t prove or disprove those implausible stories involving hairspray in the toilet or JFK was killed by a ice bullet, … Continue reading
