Amadeus is my favorite movie, kindled my love of classical music and is the single biggest reason I learned how to play a violin (kind of).

RIP, from the bottom of my heart.
Although not my favorite movie, Amadeus was an eye opener for me. I probably need to see it again to see if it's held up over the years.

Art Bell
I would sometimes listen to his UFO theories on late night radio while driving home from some wine event or other. He never seemed to pose any skepticism for any caller, no matter how outlandish their claims. But it was still good entertainment.

Sorry to hear it. He was simply terrific in the opening scene of Full Metal Jacket!

The lone bright spot on the 72-73 Sixers which I believe was his final season. My dad and I went to 20 games and I don't remember seeing them win any of them
I always enjoyed Night Court and did not realize that Anderson had moved to Asheville.

RIP to former Duke coach Vic Bubas. Duke was good in the 60s under Bubas. He coached All Americans Art Heyman, Jack Marin and Bob Verga.
Carl Kasell, NPR broadcaster and scorekeeper on Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me. Loved his voice and always wanted it on my answering machine.

Probably one of the more beloved First Ladies. She always seemed to carry herself with fantastic grace as well as a nice sense of humor.

He was 94 years old.


Watched all of them in the early 70's... Lolly's Adverbs for Sale, Conjunction Junction, I'm Just a Bill, also liked Rufus and Pronouns for sure! Literacy would be way higher if these songs were available in today's classrooms.

RIP Bob, a heartfelt Thank You as well.

I remember most of those cartoons (and their messages), too. Those songs really stick in your head. Maybe someone should send a compilation dvd to a certain someone in D.C. to learn about grammar and how Bills are formed.

While I’m confident most are not aware of his photography, he was a talented photojournalist IMO. I always felt I understood the narrative of his work.

At first I thought you were referring to Abbas Kiarostami, someone else who most people are not aware was a brilliant photographer (in addition to his filmmaking)... and I thought you were a few years behind in hearing about his death.

Heard a good interview with him by Terry Gross of Fresh Air (NPR). Worth seeking out.

Well, not quite dead yet...

I think the Guitar Center chain is in similar condition. If prices get slashed I may have to finally consider owning a Les Paul. Probably not, but for the right price...
Will Alsop, R.I.P.

Thank you for making architecture both interesting and challenging. As a student of architecture, I always was interested in your next work.

Alsop was known as a man not familiar with gyms. Big Grin
