February 1st, 2021 under Dustin Diamond, Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Dustin Diamond passed away today at the age of 44 after a very short battle with cancer.

His team released this statement, “We are saddened to confirm of Dustin Diamond’s passing on Monday, February 1st, 2021 due to carcinoma. He was diagnosed with this brutal, relentless form of malignant cancer only three weeks ago. In that time, it managed to spread rapidly throughout his system; the only mercy it exhibited was its sharp and swift execution. Dustin did not suffer. He did not have to lie submerged in pain. For that, we are grateful.”

Diamond is best known for playing Screech on Saved By the Bell. Even though the role made him a household name, it also destroyed him. After the show ended, he had a hard time with life, including an arrest, bankruptcy, and a sex tape.

He appeared on several reality shows as the bad guy. It was an image they created for him, but it wasn’t him. He never got a chance to redeem himself. Hopefully, now he will get it.

Today, let’s remember his good times and watch him in the role that made us fall in love with the lovable nerd.


RIP Cloris Leachman
January 27th, 2021 under Cloris Leachman, Obits. [ Comments: 1 ]

Cloris Leachman passed away in her sleep at the age of 94, according to the AP.

Cloris Leachman was a beloved actress that was as zany as she seemed on the screen. That is why we loved her whether she was the judgmental Phyllis on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, the supportive Beverly Ann on The Facts of Life, or the bitchy grandmother on Malcolm in the Middle or Raising Hope. She had a way of making you laugh with her face as well as with the lines they gave her.

She was a beautiful woman, and that is why she competed in the Miss America pageant. However, she had no problem getting ugly for the role of Frau Blücher (neigh) in Young Frankenstein and many others.

Leachman did whatever it took to win the audience. Something that was very easy to do because she was such a lovable character on and off of the camera.

She was a special lady until the end of her life, and that is why she never stopped acting or talking risks. Risks like doing Dancing with the Stars at the age of 82 or stripping down in her 80s.

They truly broke the mold when they made her, and the World is a sadder place without her in it. While she might be gone, her work lives on. Today, let’s honor her by watching many of the things she did to make us fall in love with her.

In 1972, he starred on Sanford & Son’s as Sanford’s wisecracking Latino neighbor who didn’t put up with the junkyard owner’s racism and crap.

In the ’80s and ’90s, he was back on the force in Hill Street Blues, Miami Vice, Murder She Wrote.

Larry King passed away this morning at the age of 87 after being hospitalized with COVID-19 for a few weeks, according to his Twitter account.

King started his career in Miami doing radio. He then got a national talk show where he caught the eye of CNN. Therefore, in 1985 they gave him a show, and he stayed there for 25 years.

In that quarter of a century, he interviewed everyone from celebrities, World leaders, murderers, ordinary people, and historical figures. He had his own special way, would be a nice way to put it, of interviewing people. Because of that, you wanted to watch him and see what he would ask these people. You never knew what was going to come out of his mouth. Even knowing that, people still flocked to his show and to him.

In 2012, he started his company and created a new talk show on OraTV called Larry King Now. He continued interviewing people up until last year. Even after having a stroke in 2019 did not stop him.

In fact, in his 87 years, he beat several health issues, including heart surgery, cancer, diabetes, and many more ailments. However, it was COVID-19 that finally got him.

Today, remember him by watching his interviews. See how his style influenced so many.


Costco is closing all of its photo centers
January 15th, 2021 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Valentine’s Day just got a whole lot sadder because Costco announced that they will be closing all of its photo centers on that day.

However, you still will be able to order Prints, Enlargements & Posters, Stationery & Photo Greeting Cards, Canvas, Metal & Acrylic Prints, Photo Books & Calendars, Photo Blankets & Other Photo Gifts, and Business Printing Products online. That is the good news. The bad news is that they will no longer offer Ink Refill, Passport Photos, Photo Restoration, and YesVideo Home Movie Transfer Service.

It makes sense, because who still takes photos with film, but it is still sad. Does anyone know a Costco member who can take me inside of one so that I can take a photo of a photo center before they make a like a photograph?
