May 20, 2011

While a slew of morons are plastering religious nonsense all over the internet, some rather shocking information elbow-dropped me into my own religious experience….and not in a good way.  It seems the greatest, most meticulous, professional wrestler has signed his contract to wrestle for eternity in the halls of Valhalla.  Today, “Macho Man” Randy Savage passed away.  TMZ has all the details that are known as of now.

Pour One Out For: Charles Sellier Jr.

February 3, 2011

Most of the dudes and dudettes of my generation have probably never heard the name Charles Sellier Jr.  Those who have, they know that he was the creator of the early 70’s character Grizzly Adams both in books and for the small screen.  Fans of 80’s horror films know him best as the director of the most controversial holiday slasher film to date, Silent Night Deadly Night.  Me being a huge horror fan, it was a real bummer when I hit up DreadCentral.com this morning and found out that Sallier passed away this past Monday.

Pour One Out For: Leslie Nielsen 2/11/1926 – 11/28/2010

November 29, 2010

“I know this little, out of the way place, that serves great Viking food.”

I know what you’re thinking:  “Surely you can’t be serious”.  I am serious.  And don’t call me Shirley.  Leslie Nielsen, one of the greatest, if not THE greatest funnyman of all time, passed away yesterday in his sleep due to pneumonia complications.  Boy, I sure picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.

Pour On Out For: Dino De Laurentiis 8/8/1919 – 11/10/2010

November 13, 2010

Staying awake for 31 hours has a funny effect on my mind.  I become even more silly than normal, drift off into thoughts of nothingness, and don’t notice extremely important events that have unfolded around me.  One such event didn’t register until 11:30 last night.  I was scanning the interwebs for stuff that looked funny (or would simply snag my attention) when I stumbled across some terrible news.  Legendary Italian film producer Dino De Laurentiis died on Wednesday.

Pour One Out For: Kevin McCarthy 2/15/1914 – 9/11/2010

September 13, 2010

After a mere 4 hours of sleep, I awoke to some rather upsetting news.  Kevin McCarthy, one of the greatest character actors of all time, has died.  These things happen and I’m growing more use to them thanks to the slew of celebrity deaths in the recent years.  But when you’re a man who has uncovered an alien race of plant-people trying to take over the world, helped the government develop a breed of killer piranha that can live in cold water, and attempted to crush a punk kid’s UHF television station, fighting pneumonia in Cape Cod should be a minor inconvenience instead of a curtain call.

Pour One Out For: Patrick Swayze 8/11/1952 – 9/14/2009

September 15, 2009


This year continues to claim the lives of celebrities at a ferocious pace.  Even though we all saw this one coming, it doesn’t mean that this sucks any less.  Sure Patrick Swayze hasn’t been in very many films these days, but when one has Stage IV pancreatic cancer you tend to take it easy.
