James Garner passed away from natural causes at the age of 86 according to The NY Times. To our parents he was known as Bret Maverick in Maverick and Jim Rockford in Rockford Files, and to us he was Duke in The Notebook and Jim Egan in 8 Simple Rules. No matter who you knew him as, you knew him as one of the greats. So today keep his spirit alive and watch one of his many movies and TV shows.

Tommy Ramone passed away yesterday at the age of 65 (or 62 depending who you read) from bile duct cancer according to Brooklyn Vegan. His born name was Erdélyi Tamás and he was the drummer for The Ramones. Tommy was the last surviving member of the punk rock band that rocked a generation and now that he is gone, I Wanna Be Sedated. They were ahead of their time, even if the music industry didn’t get them like we did.
So today honor him and the band by listening to their music and watching Rock n Rock High School, one of the greatest teen movies ever made. It is things like this that will keep The Ramones alive for future generations to love and understand like we do.


RIP Meshach Taylor

Meshach Taylor passed away yesterday at the age of 67 from a long battle with cancer according to The Hollywood Reporter. To some he is best known as Anthony Bouvier and to others he was Hollywood from the Mannequin movies and to others he was Shel on Dave’s World. But to me he was one of my favorite actors. Whenever he came on the screen, I would get a smile on my face. There was just something about him that made you happy.
So today let’s not remember with tears, let’s watch one of his many great roles and smile so big that he can see up in heaven.

Actress and activist Ruby Dee passed away yesterday at the age of 91 according to USA Today. Dee is best known for starring in Raisin in the Sun in 1961, but she has pretty much been working nonstop since she started acting in 1940. Six years later, she met her future husband Ossie Davis. A man, who she not only shared a bed with but also the stage and screen. Now 9 years later they are together once again in heaven.
Even though her voice has been silenced, we keep it very much alive by watching one of her many many films and TV appearances.

Ann B Davis passed away today at the age of 88 after falling in her San Antonio bathroom according to NBC News. She is best known for playing Alice on The Brady Bunch in almost all of its incarnations. She was the maid we wanted our parents to hire, but never the one they got. Besides starring on the classic sitcom we all watched growing up, she starred in several commercials.
So today let’s honor by watching at least one episode on The Brady Bunch, a show, thanks to syndication, that has never stopped airing since its debut in 1969.

Dr Maya Angelou left the world today at the age of 86 according to WGHP. The much adored poet and civil rights activist always knew the right thing to say, even her last Tweet was impactful. Her last published words read, “Listen to yourself and in that quietude you might hear the voice of God.” And now he is listening to her voice up in heaven.
So today spend the day reading her inspirational quotes, so even though her voice has been silenced we can still hear it loud and clear.


Remembering the TV characters we lost this season!
May 26th, 2014 under Obits. [ Comments: 1 ]

This television season was deadly, and several of our favorite characters did not make it to the end of it. But do they get an In Memoriam tribute at the Emmys? No, they do not. So HuffPost TV gave them a proper send off. So take a few minutes today to remember those who left our TV screens this year.
That is unless you don’t want to be spoiled about what happened on Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Sons of Anarchy and/or Game of Thrones.
Sadly, just like the Oscars, Finn Hudson was omitted from the tribute. But other than him and Supernatural’s Kevin Tran, they pretty much got them all. Is there anyone you think is missing from the beautiful obituary?


RIP Bob Hoskins
April 30th, 2014 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Bob Hoskins passed away today at the age of 71 after a bout with pneumonia according to the Daily Mirror. The brilliant actor was known for Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Mona Lisa, Mermaids, Nixon, Super Mario Bros, Hook, Pinocchio and Snow White and the Huntsman to name a few. Even though he received an Oscar nomination, his greatest role was being a dad. His daughter Haute Hoskins paid tribute to her dad, and what she said every child should read.
So read her beautiful words and then watch one of his movies to keep his spirit alive.


RIP Peaches Geldof
April 7th, 2014 under Bob Geldof, Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Peaches Geldof passed away today at the age of just 25. Kent Police told the BBC, “At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden.”
She was the daughter of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates, who she lost when she was only 11 to a drug overdose.
Peaches was married to Thomas Cohen with whom she had two sons, Astala, 1, and Phaedra, who is turning 1 on April 24th. Before marrying Cohen she dated director Eli Roth and married Max Drummey in Vegas when she was just 19, the two separated after just 6 months.
So sad because she had her two boys and her whole life to look forward to.

He was known for Sugar Babies, Babes in Arms, the Andy Hardy series, National Velvet, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Pete’s Dragon, The Black Stallion, Bill, Night at the Museum and The Muppets to name just a few of the many things he starred in throughout his legendary career.

So today honor this little guy with a huge career and watch one of his many many many movies.
