He'll never return

No, he'll never return

And his fate will be unlearned

But he will indeed ride forever 'cross the streets of Boston........

(poor ol' Bobby)

I sang that song at least a thousand times in elementary school, along with "Tom Dooley" and dozens of other songs which were probably staples of the Kingston Trio's set.

Chris Doleman just tweeted about surviving brain cancer 4 days ago. I don’t understand what happened in that soon of a time.

Seizures are a common occurrence for brain cancer patients and can cause sudden death.  I have no idea if this is what happened to Doleman.  RIP

My dad had pancreatic cancer and went in minutes from an embolism, not the cancer itself (which he had only just been diagnosed with)

I do not believe in "God."  Or "Heaven."  But I have to believe somehow, some way, we get to experience or be a part of the love of the creatures we saved and who saved us once we shuffle off this mortal coil.  I simply can't bear to have lost such a thing forever.

I suppose I hope that I am larger than my contradictions.

Our golden rescue is 13, the same age as our son we lost when my son was 8. Golden’s time isn’t imminent, but she’s slowing way down.

I’m going to choose to believe they are reunited when she goes, and I don’t care how plausible it is.

Rip Andy Gill, guitarist and cofounder of gang of four. A billion post-punk guitarists owe you their jangly, feedback sound.

 

Also rip Taliesin school of architecture...frank Lloyd Wright's. Unclear to me what happened with it...some issue between board, dean and accreditation I think. Sad. Strange place and bizarre attempting to ape what the master did...but you could do far worse than that.

Aw, that's sad.  I visited the one in Wisconsin last year, and the whole concept seemed so cool.  Seemed like a commune, in a good way.

I assume both Taliesins FLW culty drink the koolaid facilities are staying open- just the school in AZ on the Taliesin grounds is closing. At least, that's how I'm understanding it.

No, I'm talking about the school in Wisconsin.  There were schools at both locations.

I wonder if they're linked or if they're separate entities?

Googling now. Still not clear what went down in AZ

They're linked (or were); students traveled fairly frequently between the two.  They're both closing.

Comedian Jack Burns died at age 86.  He had a long career but had his greatest success as half of a comedy team with Avery Schreiber.  He also replaced Don Knotts on the Andy Griffith Show and "fought" with Andy Kaufman on live network television.

Jack Burns was a funny guy.  Used to watch Burns & Schreiber all the time.

When he was a young Boston comic, i used to kid Jay Leno that he stole his "serious" voice from Jack Burns. He didn't deny it. RIP -

Burns and (George) Carlin recorded in 1960.  They were 27 and 23 at the time. 

Their act relies on a lot of silly voices.  They work clean but there's an edgy bit about children's television, heroin and Lolita at about the 9:20 mark.

Ivan Kral who played bass with the Patti Smith Group and collaborated with Iggy Pop on a couple of albums died at age 71.

His 1976 film The Blank Generation is a vital document of the early NYC Punk scene in spite of its crappy production values.

Ace in the Hole, Spartacus, Out of the Past, The Bad and the Beautiful, so many great movie. 

I think this makes Olivia de Havilland the last truly great star of the classic era left. Crazy to even think one of the main characters from Gone with the Wind is still alive.

Man, he was 103? 

I heard Michael Douglas on a radio spot for Michael Bloomberg the other day and thought to myself "wow, he sounds OLD".  That makes his pop even older.

God bless.

Just to put it into perspective, the next 5 lead billed actors of Gone With the Wind and when they passed  Clark Gable 1960, Vivien Leigh 1967, Leslie Howard 1943, Thomas Mitchell 1962, Hattie McDaniel 1952. Olvia still going in 2020.

I was thinking about putting on Paths of Glory, but I just noticed that I have “Lust for Life” sitting on my DVR, which I have not seen. May do that as my tribute tonight.

RIP - one of the greats

Funny. I remember back in the 70's playing in a softball league. One guy on one of the other teams was a pro boxer (short career) whose pro name was Doug Kirk. He took that name because he looked like Kirk Douglass (IIRC he did, except he was bigger).

there's a little story that Alec Baldwin recounts on "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" with Seinfeld about Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas. It's really more of a Lancaster story, Is suppose, but it sticks with me. Never fails to crack me up.

Kirk was a Hollywood legend. RIP.

Was at Mr. Chow’s in Beverly Hills circa 2002. Post stroke. Kirk Douglas came in and was seated nearby. He was escorted, and scootched each step of the way, hanging on for dear life to someone’s elbow.

I only went there a handful of times, but every time there was an A lister there. Cher was at the table right next to mine once.

If you’d have asked me then if I though Kirk had another year left in him, I’d have taken even money. He had a good run, including 24 years after a serious stroke.

After the SOTU the other night, we were looking at the list of Presidential Medal of Freedom winners.  Douglas was on the list but the interesting thing to me was that he was given the award during the Carter administration.

Lancaster and Douglas were terrific as adversaries in John Frankenheimer's Seven Days in May.
