RIP Albert Finney
February 8th, 2019 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Albert Finney passed away from a short illness at the age of 82 according to Daily Mail.

Finney began acting in 1960 and continued doing so until a cancer diagnosis in 2011. Throughout his 50-year career, he received five Oscar nominations, but no wins. What he did win was the hearts of little girls like me as Daddy Warbucks in Annie.

That was just one of his many credits where he won over his audience. There was also Tom Jones, Scrooge, Murder on the Orient Express, Erin Brockovich, The Gathering Storm, two Bourne movies and Skyfall.

Today, remember him magnificent career by watching one of his many great works. I will do it by singing Tomorrow. He might not have one, but his legacy will.


RIP Kristoff St. John
February 4th, 2019 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Kristoff St. John was found dead yesterday at his home from apparent natural causes according to TMZ.

The 52-year-old actor had his first on-camera gig back in 1975 when was just 8 years old in That’s My Mama and he never stopped acting. In the ’70s and ’80s, he starred in and guest starred on several shows and movies, but then in 1991, he got the job he is most known for. That is when he cast a Neil Winters on The Young & The Restless. A role that earned him 2 Daytime Emmy Awards, 9 nominations and countless fans.

In 2014, tragedy struck him and he was never the same. That is when his son Julian committed suicide in a mental health facility. After that, he went into a downward spiral. Things were looking up for him when he proposed to his girlfriend, Kseniya Mikhaleva, in September. His fiancee wrote this about him today, “How did it happen ??? How ??? Why did you leave so early ???? and left me alone ….. I can’t believe 💔💔💔💔 you were everything to me …. you were a loving father, a loving man,… 😢😢😢😭😭😭😭💔💔💔💔 love??we should doing a lot of things in future……” Now instead of planning their wedding, they are planning his funeral.

If you know someone who needs help, then don’t hesitate but to get them help ASAP.


RIP Dick Miller
January 31st, 2019 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Dick Miller passed away yesterday at the age of 90 from natural causes according to The Hollywood Reporter.

You might not have known Dick Miller by his name, but you definitely know him by his face. He was the go-to character actor for Roger Corman and Joe Dante. He was seen in their movies like Sorority Girl, Apache Women, War of the Satellites, A Bucket of Blood and Piranha, Gremlins, The ‘Burbs, Innerspace, The Howling, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School and Burying the Ex. He worked several other directors in horror classics like Chopping Mall, Little Shop of Horrors and Night of the Creeps.

If those movies are not enough to recognize him, then he has a long list of TV shows on his resume too. Shows like Taxi, Fame, Gunsmoke, Soap, Police Squad, Who’s the Boss, The Flash and Sister, Sister.

Those are just a few of his many credits, so it makes sense that he never stopped acting during his 65-year career. Plus, he has a documentary made about him called That Guy Dick Miller.

Today, let’s put his name to his face and watch one of his many great movies. I have seen a bunch of them already and will rewatch them again in his honor because they never get old.


RIP Penny Marshall
December 18th, 2018 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Penny Marshall passed away today the age of 75 due to complications from diabetes according to TMZ.

Back in the ’70s, we feel in love with Penny Marshall when she played Oscar Madison’s secretary on The Odd Couple. She followed that up with her most iconic role, Laverne DeFazio on Laverne & Shirley. Girls wanted to be her and boys wanted to date her.

Then as Laverne moved to Hollywood, her career shifted in a different direction. She went from in front of the camera to behind it. She directed such legendary movies like Big, Awakenings, A League of Their Own, The Preacher’s Wife and Riding in Cars with Boys.

Did you know that Penny Marshall was married to Rob Reiner from 1971-1981? She has one daughter, Tracy, from her first marriage to Michael Henry, who has 5 children.

Today, drink some milk and Pepsi and celebrate a woman who touched so many with her great work.


RIP Stan Lee
November 12th, 2018 under Marvel Comics, Obits. [ Comments: none ]
Stan Lee passed away today at the age of 95 according to CBS News and what a life he lead. You do not need to be a comic book nerd to know who he was. At least one of the characters he created touched your life at some point. Whether it was Spider-man, The Hulk, one of the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men or Deadpool. We all watched or read one of them at one point in our lives.

Today, we remember the man who made us feel like children no matter how old he was. Just like the Hulk, the creator of Marvel comics smashed life.

Now he is with his wife of 69 years, Joan, who passed away in July 2017.
