sorry my error. I wasn't thinking of Andy either, just for some reason I thought that Barry had died several years ago.

DON"T PANIC
Not so recent but still...
The chances of finding out what's really going on in the universe are so remote, the only thing to do is hang the sense of it and keep yourself occupied
He was a dreamer, a thinker, a speculative philosopher... or, as his wife would have it, an idiot.

In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.


I don't believe it. Prove it to me and I still won't believe it.

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be.

RIP Ron Shock
One of the original Texas Outlaw Comics (also included Sam Kinison, Bill Hicks and Jimmy Pineapple) died this month after a battle with cancer.

For those interested, he chronicled the entire thing on youtube Ron Shock: Cancer Chronicles which are both hilarious and sad at times, but definitely inspiring.

I met him only one time on the comedy circuit, and he was the nicest dude ever. He also had great pot and we got to smoke together and he told us stories about Sam Kinison and Bill Hicks.

Known for telling great stories, here is on of my favorite one's, and fitting for EvC as it's about Oral Roberts.

Rest in peace, Ron Shock (October 19, 1942 May 17, 2012). I'm only glad that you are out of pain now, but saddened that you had to go.

We will miss you Ray
One of the great Sci-Fi writers has passed away, a Mr. Ray Bradbury:

For me, he ranked up there with Orwell and Vonnegut. He will be missed.

RIP Ray Bradbury
Apparently Ray Bradbury, a science-fiction legend for over half a century, has just passed away.

Re: So long Ernie
Great movie, The Wild Bunch, with Ben Johnson, Warren Oates and William Holden. But I remember him best in McHale's Navy with Tim Conway.

Re: So long Ernie
Great movie, The Wild Bunch,

One of my favorites mostly because of Peckinpaw's work rather than Borgnine's.

Ernest was always so believable to me though. It never seemed like he was acting.

Sally Ride, RIP

As the first American woman in space, certainly SHE deserves an acknowledgement

Gore Vidal
Gore Vidal, American Author, Playwright, Dies At 86

quote:
Vidal was a learned, but primarily self-educated man. Classrooms bored him. He graduated from the elite Phillips Exeter Academy, but then enlisted in the Army and never went to college. His first book, the war novel Williwaw, was written while he was in the service and published when he was just 20.

I always liked his articles on the economy.
