June 19th, 2016 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Anton Yelchin passed away at the age of just 27 from a freak solo accident according to The Los Angeles Times. The Russian born actor’s first big role was as Byrd on the Showtime drama Huff. He played a teenager who was wise beyond his years. After that show got cancelled he landed the role as Chekov in Star Trek. His last movie with the franchise comes out next month. This wasn’t the only huge movie he starred in, he also appeared in Alpha Dog, Charlie Bartlett, Terminator Salvation, The Smurfs, Fright Night and Green Room to name a few.
Even as a teenager starring in Huff, you could tell he was going to be the incredible actor he became. Sadly we only a got a glimpse of his phenomenal talent because he light was snuffed out way too early.
Even though he was taken away from us so young, let’s keep his legacy alive today by watching him in one of his many unforgettable roles giving a memorable performance.

Ann Morgan Guilbert passed away yesterday at the age of 87 from cancer according to The Hollywood Reporter. In 1961, she came on to our television screens in a little show called The Dick Van Dyke Show and stayed on there almost up until her death. She played Rob and Laura Petrie’s goofy but lovable neighbor Millie. After that beloved comedy she guest starred on several shows and in a lot of commercials, until landing the role of Grandma Yetta on The Nanny 1993. She stole every scene she was in on the show. She continued to steal even more scenes up until this year when she guest starred on Life in Pieces.
Today, let’s keep her funny spirit alive by watching her in one of her many roles.


RIP Christina Grimmie
June 11th, 2016 under Obits, The Voice. [ Comments: none ]

Two years ago, Christina Grimmie came out on to The Voice like a wrecking ball, and now we all feel like we were hit by wrecking ball after hearing about her senseless death. The 22 year old singer was and shot and killed last night while signing autographs after a show in Orlando, Fl.
Orlando police said a 27 year old man from Florida traveled to the concert armed with two handguns, 2 additional magazines and a hunting knife approached and shot her. Then her brother, Marcus Grimmie, tackled the shooter to the ground. The shooter then shot and killed himself. As of now, there is no motive for this horrific crime and it doesn’t seem like her knew her personally.
This will change the way we go to concerts and it will change the access we have to celebrities.
But now let’s not think about that, let’s remember Christina Grimmie and pray for her family and friends as they deal with the unimaginable. A young beautiful light snuffed out way before her time.


RIP Muhammad Ali
June 4th, 2016 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]
Muhammad Ali passed away yesterday at the age of 74 from respiratory complications. Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr was a great boxer, but as Muhammad Ali he was the Greatest. Not only did he box with his hands, he also fought with his mouth. Giving us great lines like, “Float like butterfly, sting like a bee,” and “I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.” He wasn’t only an athlete, he was an inspiration to many.
Today honor the Champ, by keeping his fighting spirit alive!


RIP Tonita Castro
May 12th, 2016 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Tonita Castro passed away on May 8th from cancer at the age of 64 according to Deadline. Although her name might not be familiar to you, you will know her face. The actress had a way of stealing every scene she was in. On Go On she didn’t speak English, but you knew what she was saying. She was the reason to tune into Dads every week because they always gave her the best bits and she delivered them perfectly. Sometimes she didn’t have to say anything and she would make you laugh.
Today remember her with a huge smile by watching one of her many roles.

RIP Prince

When Doves Cry – Prince
1999 – Prince

Little Red Corvette – Prince

Prince’s musical genius was silenced today because he passed away at the age of 57. According to TMZ he has been suffering from he flu for the last few weeks.
The best way for me to remember him today is to share the lyrics to song Let’s Go Crazy because I am at a lost for words. It seems like the perfect way to remember him today. That and listening to all of his songs or watching Purple Rain.

Dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
To get through this thing called life
Electric word life
It means forever and that’s a mighty long time
But I’m here to tell you
There’s something else
The after world
A world of never ending happiness
You can always see the sun, day or night
So when you call up that shrink in Beverly Hills
You know the one, Dr. Everything’ll Be Alright
Instead of asking him how much of your time is left
Ask him how much of your mind, baby
‘Cause in this life
Things are much harder than in the after world
In this life
You’re on your own
And if the elevator tries to bring you down
Go crazy, punch a higher floor
If you don’t like the world you’re living in
Take a look around you
At least you got friends
You see I called my old lady
For a friendly word
She picked up the phone
Dropped it on the floor
(Ah, ah) is all I heard
Are we gonna let the elevator
Bring us down
Oh, no let’s go!
Let’s go crazy
Let’s get nuts
Let’s look for the purple banana
‘Til they put us in the truck, let’s go!
We’re all excited
But we don’t know why
Maybe it’s ’cause
We’re all gonna die
And when we do (When we do)
What’s it all for (What’s it all for)
You better live now
Before the grim reaper come knocking on your door
Tell me, are we gonna let the elevator bring us down
Oh, no let’s go!
Let’s go crazy
Let’s get nuts
Look for the purple banana
‘Til they put us in the truck, let’s go!
C’mon baby
Let’s get nuts
Let’s go crazy
Are we gonna let the elevator bring us down
Oh, no let’s go!
Go crazy
I said let’s go crazy (Go crazy)
Let’s go, let’s go
Let’s go
Dr. Everything’ll be alright
Will make everything go wrong
Pills and thrills and daffodils will kill
Hang tough children
He’s coming
He’s coming
Take me away!


RIP Chyna
April 21st, 2016 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Joanie Lauer aka Chyna passed away at the age of 45 from an apparent overdose according to TMZ. She is best known as one of the greatest female Wrestlers ever. But many other people know her from the VH1 reality shows she did. She appeared on The Surreal Life, The Surreal Life: Fame Games and Celebrity Rehab. She was big in stature, and her personality was even bigger.
Today let’s remember her for that and keep her larger that life spirit alive.


RIP Doris Roberts
April 18th, 2016 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Doris Roberts passed away at the age of 90 yesterday according to TMZ. Even though she has been gracing our televisions since the ’50s, she is best known for a role she started playing 45 years later. That role is Marie, the tough but loving mother, on Everybody Loves Raymond. Her comedic timing on that show made it the classic it became while it was still on the air. But that was just one of her many roles, she also had some very memorable guest star roles on shows like All in the Family, Soap, Barney Miller, Alice, Full House, Lizzie McGuire, Hot In Cleveland, Desperate Housewives and Major Crimes to name a very few. She loved acting so much, she never stopped. She was still acting even though she just entered her 9th decade on this Earth.
So today honor her legacy and watch one of her many wonderful roles to keep her spirit alive. And make sure to watch at least one episode of Everybody Loves Raymond, so she can hear our laughter wherever she is now.


RIP Patty Duke
March 29th, 2016 under Obits. [ Comments: 1 ]

Patty Duke passed away today at the age of 69 due to sepsis from a ruptured intestine according to her agent Mitchell K. Stubbs.
Patty Duke had an horrendous childhood because of parents and her abusive talent managers, even though she had huge sucess on Broadway and on the big screen playing Helen Keller in The Miracle Worker at such a young age. In 1963, she landed the role of Patty Lane and her lookalike cousin Cathy in the sitcom The Patty Duke Show that still airs today in syndication on Me TV and other channels. In 1967, she starred as Neely O’Hara in the groundbreaking Valley of the Dolls. Throughout the years, she continued acting nonstop. She even starred in The Miracle Worker again, but this time as Keller’s teacher Anne Sullivan.
But her life was not easy, a very short lived marriage, alcohol abuse and eventually the diagnosis of bipolar disorder. That diagnosis saved her life and she brought awareness to it by talking about it on several talk shows. She wrote an autobiography called Call Me Anna, that is a must read, and starred in a movie of the week based on it. All of this brought bipolar disorder to the forefront and made people aware of it.
As the years went on she continued to talk about it and act constantly. Thirty years ago on March 15th, she married the love of her life Michael Pearce, moved to Idaho and had a son with him. She has two other sons that she raised with John Astin, Sean and Mackenzie Astin, both of whom are actors.
When I think of Patty Duke, I think of a woman who I revere first, and then the actress who I admire. She was so inspirational and someone Hollywood and the world will be talking about for decades to come because of the huge impact she left on it and left on us.
So today please honor this wonderful woman by watching one of her many great works to let her know that we will always love her. I know that is how I am going to spend the today.
Personally, I am sorry I have never met, but I am honored that was able to chat with her on the phone on more than one occasion. She was as warm as you would expect to her be.
