Re: Hilly Kristal, the Heart and Soul of CBGB
So sad...first the club and now the man. My ex-GF (I actually heard about his death through her) used to work at CBGB's and the first time I met Hilly I couldn't stop thanking him. And I'll thank him again...for all the great music and all the good times I had. We'll miss you.

You are anarchists in the realm of thought. And you are mad cosmos-makers. Each of you dwells in a cosmos of his own making, created out of his own fancies and desires. You do not know the real world in which you live, and your thinking has no place in the real world except in so far as it is phenomena of mental aberration." -The Iron Heel by Jack London

Joe Zawinul
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Zawinul

quote:
Josef Erich Zawinul (July 7, 1932 – September 11, 2007) was a jazz keyboardist and composer. He was one of the front runners in the development of jazz fusion along with Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin and Miles Davis. Best known as the founder of the band Weather Report, with Miroslav Vitous and Wayne Shorter with whom he had previously recorded two albums as part of Davis' studio band, in his final years he headed the ensemble called The Zawinul Syndicate.

I found out from the WFMU blog:

American Looses Christian Patriots.
Dr Jerry Falwell and Dr D James Kennedy fought the good fight to keep America good, free and great as scores of thousands educated and blessed by their work saddened by the loss.

There are specific topics concerning both of the above cited - Jerry Falwell dead and D James Kennedy is dead. Opinions about these people should go to those topics and should NOT be in this topic. Messages to the contrary are liable to trigger suspensions. - Adminnemooseus

Composer Karlheinz Stockhausen Passed Away on December 5th 2007
http://www.stockhausen.org/

From allmusic.com:

quote:
Karlheinz Stockhausen emerged early on as one of the most influential and unique voices in the post-WWII European musical avant-garde and his prominence continued throughout the rest of the twentieth century and into the twenty first. Combining a keen sensitivity to the acoustical realities and possibilities of sound, rigorous and sophisticated compositional methods expanded from integral serialism, innovative theatricality, and a penchant for the mystical, Stockhausen remains one of the most innovative musical personalities to span the turn of this century.

The passing of a dear friend.
The VA (Veterans Administration) recent issued the following sad bulletin:

We regret to announce the recent passing of the veteran Pillsbury spokesman Pop-N-Fressh Doughboy. His death was attributed to a severe yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly.

Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin, and the graveside was piled high with flours. Dozens of celebrities were on hand, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker. the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch.

In her eulogy, Aunt Jemima described Doughboy as "a man who never knew how much he was kneaded." Doughboy rose quickly in business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. Not a very smart cookie, he wasted much of his dough on half-baked schemes. A crusty old man, and a little flaky at times, he was nevertheless considered a positive roll model for millions.

Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, his son John Dough, and two daughters, Jane Dough and Cookie Dough, plus one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart. The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

Re: Ike Turner (lol) and my grandmother
Please accept my sympathy for your loss, brenna.

My mother and grandmother died within the same month a few years back.

I still catch myself thinking, "Wait till I tell Mom about this!"

Re: Ike Turner (lol) and my grandmother
i have this odd, random memory. it's neither odd or random as a memory, really. but. it was a completely random event. i was at my grandmother's and was bored and she suggested we do something. i think i asked her to make magic. she had a jar of quotes that she'd cut out of various things and it said magic on the side. i dunno, i was inspired.

so we made magic. it was really rosemary infused corn starch, but it was amazing. i found the jar of it while cleaning out her house over the summer. it's over there <------.

we sometimes leave things in people's caskets. i bought some little plastic baggies and put some various spices and some corn starch into them and tied them up in a pretty green organza bag. it's probably the most insane thing in the world, but it's one of my most treasured memories.

she had her flaws, and a great many, but to me, she was magic.
