In Memoriam

I hope everyone's long Memorial Day weekend was grand. Clearly, this holiday is to remember our fallen soldiers but, since that doesn't really fit with my blog theme, I'd like to offer up a memorial to some of the celebs who have left us so far this year. (I'm sure I've forgotten many people, but I'm just putting this together quickly and trying to hit some of the best-known folks.) Unlike the tacky Oscars death reel, applause will not be tolerated until the slide show is over.

The big question remains - is this Abe Vigoda's year? He's been skunking people's death pools for a while now.

In honor of Peter Graves I would just like to know if you have ever been in a Turkish prison?

Man, people are turning up toes all over the shop huh?

I had already forgotten that Bob Culp passed on.

I hear Peter Graves had the fish for dinner.

OMG. NOT DADDY! Poor Cesar's going to have to find a new lumbering barrel of a dog to help him out. I'm pretty sure Daddy was a stoner.

I didn't realize all of these people died this year already! I had almost forgotten about Corey Haim and now I'm all sad again. AND I HAD NO IDEA DADDY DIED!!!!

Damn, that's a lot of people. Add Rue McClanahan to the list. :(

Thanks for the bummer, BeckEye.


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
