RIP Tom Petty
October 2nd, 2017 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Tom Petty passed away today at the age of just 66 after suffering cardiac arrest this morning according to his family.

The singer was known for unique sound and iconic voice. His songs like I Won’t Back Down, Free Fallin’, Runnin’ Down A Dream and American Woman became our anthems. Then there was the music video he did for Don’t Come Around Here No More, that is still just as groundbreaking today as it was when it came out 32 years ago.

Music was as much a part of his life as his music is to us. So much so, he was still touring up until last week. He spent the summer celebrating 40 years in the music industry both with the Tom Petty and the Heartbreaks, Traveling Wilburys and as a solo act. If there is a way to go out as a musician, I would say that is pretty close to perfect.

Today, honor him by belting out one of his tunes, so he can hear our voices up in heaven as he is be welcomed through the pearly gates and being greeted by Roy Orbinson and George Harrison who will handle him with care.


RIP Hugh Hefner
September 28th, 2017 under Obits, Playboy. [ Comments: none ]

Hugh Hefner passed away from natural causes yesterday at the age of 91. What a life he lead. Men wanted to be him and women wanted to be with him.

He created a magazine called Playboy that taught women that they could be beautiful naked. It could be artistic and not just for men to ogle at. It also helped create the sexual revolution in the ’60s. It made us less uptight about sex and we needed it. The feeling of sexual freedom was always there, he just help to expose it for what is. Something so natural and amazing.

And like I said, he lead an amazing life! Let’s honor him today by taking a beautiful photo of ourselves naked and loving our bodies like he did. Or reading a Playboy magazine…for the articles.


RIP Jerry Lewis
August 20th, 2017 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Jerry Lewis passed away today at the age of 91 in Las Vegas according to Las Vegas Review Journal.

He will forever be known as the King of Comedy because no one brought humor to the big screen like him in movies like The Nutty Professor, The Bellboy, Cinderfella and so many more. While he made us laugh until we cried, he also made us cry when he hosted the annual Jerry Lewis Telethon for the MDA for 44 years. Now without him, Labor Day will never be the same.

For 10 years, his partner was Dean Martin. He was the serious guy to Lewis’ clown. They were pair made in cinematic heaven and now, thanks to them reuniting in 1976 after a nasty breakup, they are in entertaining everyone up there with Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. While not a member of the Rat Pack, they still all go hand in hand together.

Today, keep his comedic genius alive by rewatching or discovering one of his many hilarious movies. There has never been a comedian like him and there will never be one like him again.

On a personal note, I am so glad that I got to see him host one of his telethons live when I just moved to Los Angeles. When I was a kid, I would look forward to Labor Day just to watch it all night long. I never made it through a whole one, but I enjoyed every minute I got to see. There was something so magical about watching all these legends come on and share the screen with him on live television. He was a true master and we are better for the 91 years he had on this Earth.


RIP Joe Bologna
August 14th, 2017 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Joe Bolonga passed away yesterday at the age of 82 from a three-year battle with pancreatic cancer according to Variety.

The actor is best known for his big screen roles in My Favorite Year, Woman of the Year, Blame It on Rio, The Woman in Red, Transylvania 6-5000, It Had to Be You and Ice Age: The Meltdown. I remember him for his small screen roles in Rags to Riches and the Married…with Children spinoff Top of the Heap.

Although his biggest role was husband to Renee Taylor. The two worked together on several projects since 1971 when they co-starred and wrote Love and Other Strangers together. Their 52-year marriage was one that was so special, it is hard to imagine one without the other.

Today honor their love and his life by watching one of their many projects together! It our way of letting her know, she has our love through this difficult time by celebrating their love!


RIP John Heard
July 22nd, 2017 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

John Heard passed away yesterday at the age of 72 in a Palo Alto hotel while recuperating from back surgery according to TMZ.

You might not have heard of John Heard, but you know his face. Most famously it was seen in Home Alone where he was Kevin’s dad. He also had several memorable roles in Seventh Sign, Big, Sharknado, The Awakenings and The Sopranos to name a few of his over 175 credits listed on IMDB.

Today honor him by watching his most famous role and continue that great feeling you get when you watch Home Alone.
