RIP Yaphet Kotto

Another actor I thought was already passed away, whoops! Still, I’m saddened to see him depart because he was pretty cool. For me he was a great villain (Mr. Big) in Roger Moore’s debut as James Bond in Live and Let … Continue reading

RIP Tanya Roberts

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 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

Howe…Gordie, Howe

RIP Patrick Macnee, aka Steed

I put up a picture of his most iconic role because most people didn’t recognize his name. For those not into the nerdy genres, he was also Sir Denis Eton-Hogg in This is Spinal Tap, the English owner of Polydor Records, the band’s … Continue reading

RIP Christopher Lee

The consummate villain for sixty years and Ian Fleming’s cousin to boot! I had the good (or bad) fortune to see his work in the Hammer films as a kid. For some reason, WCIA-3 in Champaign, IL would have a … Continue reading

RIP: Geoffrey Holder

Geoffrey was a very recognizable voice for several decades especially if you were a kid in the Seventies thanks to the 7-Up commercials he did. I think younger people probably know him more for being the crazy director in Eddie Murphy’s Boomerang. He … Continue reading

RIP: Richard “Jaws” Kiel

Vacation does put you in a news or media vacuum…except when it comes to sports; you’d think all the thuggery in the NFL was the only thing going on in Las Vegas. Well, I wanted to dedicate a few dozen … Continue reading
