I think it was Stand By Me when the kids were talking about how the letters on Annette were changing as she changed. Classic line!

So, did you find it?

Pat Summerall is now officially in the locker room. After 21 years calling games with Madden, he passed away at 82.

I sorry to hear the news about Ray Harryhausen.

I remember as a kid getting my folks to take me to see "The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad" when it opened in theaters.

I chased "Clash of the Titans" around South America in 1981 until finally catching it in La Paz, Bolivia.

"7th Voyage" was often shown on TV when I was really young and it was my first exposure to Harryhausen's work. It was mesmerizing. I was fortunate enough to see a theatrical re-release around the same time that "Golden Voyage of Sinbad" came out and it still ranks as my favourite of his films (and I have them all).

In 2005, I got to meet Mr. Harryhausen and he was such a gentleman. R.I.P. Ray and thank you.

It's true, I'm afraid.

Confirmed by multiple mainstream media outlets.

I just got off the phone with some folks close to The Doors camp. It is indeed true. I'm actually sincerely devastated.

I feel for you, Dr. Gonzo, but be thankful that you were able to meet Ray in his lifetime. Losing an idol is something I can empathize with (John Entwistle died in 2002 but I met him a few times in the '90s). Cherish those memories and he will live forever...along with his music.

In other news:
Nobody mentioned it before but Richie Havens passed away last month on April 22nd, 2013. He was great and his performance of "Handsome Johnny" at Woodstock was a major influence on me.

Rev. Greeley

I wish I knew more of this man (and a part of me thinks I already should)...are there any who frequent here who know and can insightfully comment more of the life of Andrew? Or is this story just Chicagoland self-importance?

Greeley was an accomplished novelist. He wrote a series of mysteries involving Blackie Ryan, a Catholic Priest. I read a few of them many years ago and as I recall they were quite good. I lost track of the series after that, though I think Ryan ultimately goes on to become an Archbishop.

I believe Greeley also wrote novels outside of the mystery genre as well as some non-fiction, but I've never been exposed to his other writings.

RIP, Rev. Greeley.

To die at only 51, and in the 'old country'. You couldn't make it up.

'I Am Legend' writer Richard Matheson dies at 87

Richard Matheson, an American science-fiction writer best known for his novel "I Am Legend," died June 23 at age 87. During a career that spanned more than 60 years, Matheson wrote more than 25 novels and nearly 100 short stories, plus screenplays for TV and film.

Matheson was a major contributor to Rod Serling's classic TV series "The Twilight Zone," penning more than a dozen scripts from 1959 to 1964, including "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet." He also wrote for "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour" and was the creative force behind the classic "Star Trek" episode "The Enemy Within".
