Bob, of Bob n' Dick Sherman passed away.

That's a bit sad. Together, they were instrumental in Disney Magic, that will never again be realized.

And Ralph

I have his Jedi portfolio...pristine condition. Only geek item I have. Now, to sell it, or to have them all framed.

The abundant amount of Sherman Brothers tunes for Disney are ingrained in my brain but...

...so are their songs for "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang". Many memorable melodies in that film. If anyone can listen to Dick Van Dyke sing the Sherman Brothers tune, "Hushabye Mountain", and not shed a tear, then they are not human! (Watch the movie and you'll see what I mean.) Here is just one example of their musical greatness:

Jeeze, Ralph McQuarrie, too? Although, this comes as no surprise. He was born in 1929, and I'm dealing with my dying dad who was born in the same year as McQuarrie.

Bert Sugar, a legend in the boxing community.



Notorious for his fedora (much like Dr. Jones) and his cigars, everyday staples. A true class act.

Let's be honest, and I'm sure I speak for everyone here when I say this, we've all done it at least once.

RIP Dick.

I actually met Dick back in 1994. during a family trip to Universal Studios, Suzanne Sommers had a talk show taping in one of the sound stages. My family and I decided to go see the taping. That day Dick Clarke was a guest host with Suzanne and Chubby Checker was a music guest. Had a chance to chat with Dick during one of the commercial breaks - cool guy. He was actually the first celebrity I ever had a chance to talk with. He'll be missed.

Not a Pale Horse but a White Horse . . . .

Now let's all give a hearty Teva Five-Finger salute to one of the great non-conformists.

Micah True's death is truth that you can get too much of a good thing but I wouldn't mind cashing out the way he did (and frankly I'm glad that he cashed out before he totally sold out). Stanford Cross Country didn't have anything on this guy.

Anyone that's not familiar with the shoeless running craze that started a few years ago here in the states, you may want to check out this book . . . and I recommend that you do it before the film
(not sure if I trust Sarsgaard). And while True's character will be de-emphasized in the film, I would chose Andrew Wilson to play the White Horse.

Post The Classiest Man in Game Show History - Dead at 79

Richard Dawson, who was the classiest (and most womanizing) male host & guest in American Game Show history, passed away 3 days ago at the age of 79.



In my opinion, Richard Dawson's most shining moments were on "Match Game"! 1975 & 1976!

I was waiting for this one. Womanizing, indeed.

He'll be with us always, though...only in a rerun!

Yeah, "Hogan's Heroes"!



Pale, your picture isn't showing up for me but I followed the link and it's from, "The Running Man". I'd forgotten all about his part in that so thanks for reminding me.
