RIP Burt Bacharach
February 9th, 2023 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Burt Bacharach passed away yesterday at the age of 94. His family released this statement: “It is with saddened hearts that we share the passing of our father, husband and friend. He gave the world so much, and we are eternally grateful. The music is always there, so please keep listening. We send our love from team Bacharach, because that’s what friends are for.”

You might not know his name, but you know the songs he wrote and composed. They were sung by such beautiful voices as The Carpenters, Dionne Warwick, Dusty Springfield, B.J. Thomas, Tom Jones, and so many more.

Anytime you heard one of his many tunes, you would just have to sing along, just like they did in My Best Friend’s Wedding to Say a Little Prayer. That was the power of his cheesy love tunes, whether it is was Close to You, I’ll Never Fall in Love Again, Wishin’ and Hopin’, Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head, or What’s New Pussycat. I could go on and on with his singles that touched our hearts.

But I am too busy singing them all. And I hope you do the same today to honor him.

While his fingers have been silenced down here on earth, the angels are getting a great concert up in heaven with him and Karen Carpenter.


RIP Cindy Williams

Cindy Williams passed away today at the age of 75 after a short illness, according to The AP.

Emily and Zak Hudson, her children with ex-Bill Hudson, released this statement, “The passing of our kind, hilarious mother, Cindy Williams, has brought us insurmountable sadness that could never truly be expressed. Knowing and loving her has been our joy and privilege. She was one of a kind, beautiful, generous and possessed a brilliant sense of humor and a glittering spirit that everyone loved. We have always been, and will remain, SO proud of her for many things…her lifelong mission to rescue animals, her prolific artistry, her faith, and most of all, her ability to make the world laugh! May that laughter continue in everyone, because she would want that. Thank you for loving our Mom, she loved you too.”

Even though Williams worked nonstop from the early ’70s, her most famous role was the sweet Shirley Feeney on Laverne & Shirley. Sometimes you have one role that will live on in infamy, and that was the case with her. But it is a part that lives on in the hearts of so many.

So today, let’s watch her make us laugh and let our laughter guide her up to heaven.


RIP Adam Rich

Adam Rich passed away yesterday at the age of 54, according to TMZ.

The actor is best known for being America’s little brother thanks to his role as Nicolas Bradford, the youngest child on Eight is Enough in the late ’70s. Boys all over the US had his page boy haircut because parents wanted their kids to be as cute as he was. Heck, I was totally crushing on him when I was in my single digits.

He continued to act throughout the ’80s, but then he suffered from mental illness and addiction.

Rich was very open about his mental illness. He was trying to change the way we look at people who suffer from it and how we treat them. I wish we could’ve done more for him. Maybe that is what his legacy will be. Accepting people with mental illness and treating them like we would treat anyone else with illness and not like they are lepers.

Today, I am honoring him by rewatching his second series Code Red on Crackle. And I am also honoring him by offering to be here for you if you need to talk. If not me, then please call 988.


RIP Stephen Boss aka Twitch
December 14th, 2022 under Obits, SYTYCD. [ Comments: none ]

Twitch, aka Stephen Boss, passed away from an apparent suicide at the age of 40. TMZ says he was found with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in a LA hotel yesterday morning.

Twitch, who competed on So You Think You Can Dance and was a DJ and EP on Ellen, left behind a wife of 9 years, Allison Holker, and three children, Weslie Renae, 14, Maddox Laurel, 6, and Zaia, 3.

If you need help, please reach out to someone or call 988. You cannot take back a suicide.

Depression is a destructive illness, but there is help available. You might not see the light at the end of the tunnel, but it is out there, and things can only get better.

So please seek help because three kids are missing out on their dad being a big part of their lives. He will not go to their dance competitions, their graduations, their weddings, and so much more. He will look over them, but he will not be there in person to enjoy it with them.


RIP Christine McVie
November 30th, 2022 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Christine McVie, the songbird of Fleetwood Mac, passed away today at the age of 79 from a short illness according to her family.

“There are no words to describe our sadness at the passing of Christine McVie,” the statement reads. “She was truly one-of-a-kind, special and talented beyond measure. She was the best musician anyone could have in their band and the best friend anyone could have in their life. We were so lucky to have a life with her. Individually and together, we cherished Christine deeply and are thankful for the amazing memories we have. She will be so very missed.”

McVie started playing the piano at 4 but did not start perfecting it until she was 11. Then music became her life. She joined her first band, Chicken Shack, in her mid-’20s, but her life changed when she became a member of Fleetwood Mac in 1970.

Through the band, she had several hits, including, Don’t Stop, Over My Head, Hold Me, and so much more.

Her raspy voice and poignant lyrics drew everyone to her. So today, let’s belt out her tunes and let our voices rise her up to heaven.
