One of my favorite non-fiction writers. I remember reading Radical Chic & Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers when it was published my senior year in HS. I actually have a signed copy somewhere of "The Right Stuff."

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


just read a piece quoting him saying that the only thing the OCAD (arts school in Toronto he designed) was missing was a bar. Big Grin

I may very well be incorrect, but not sure I ever saw a film she was in.


That doesn't mean she was a bad actress. Razz

How could you not have seen Superman and/or The Amityville Horror?

Her best film, and Brian De Palma's best films is his early low budget black comedy, Sisters. It also has one of Charles Durning's earliest film appearances.

The man certainly knew how to rock a white suit.

I always wondered what he did for socks.

Not inferring anything. As for the two films, never. Did I miss something worth watching?

No. I envy you.

Will Chrysler be formally listed here tomorrow. 

Rumors don’t sound good coming out of Italy before tomorrow’s BOD meeting. 

Will Maserati and Alfa Romero be merged into one performance brand? 

Dwight Clark from Garinger HS in Charlotte, played at Clemson and dated 1980 Miss Universe Shawn Weatherly. Known for "The Catch". RIP.

Agree with you.  Life support will not help this forum, and software changes.  Hope I'm wrong, but really doubt it.

Would love to know how many posts per week of May 1st VS  Week of May 26th.  Bet its down by over 70%.

Hope RT reads these comments, but think his hands are tied

This place is dead. Nice going Mr Taylor. I used to enjoy reading here.

Yeah, RT woke up one day and wanted to make things suck. 

105 posts in 10 years? If you bail, we'll certainly miss you...

Anthony Bourdain, by suicide? WTF.

I can't quite process it. This is incredibly shocking and very sad.

Same here. It doesn’t make sense. 

Obviously, financial success and world fame is not the antidote to depression and other forms of mental illness.  Maybe financial success and fame (and the pressure that comes with these things) can sometimes lead to mental illness. (See, e.g., the current occupant of the W. House).  Suicides are an increasing in frequency and this is pretty troubling. I think at least one famous French Chef, upon losing a Michelin star, did the same. It's very unfortunate.

 

Just shocking.  This guy seemed to have a life that most of us would give our eye teeth to have: travel around the world, see amazing sights, eat great food, and make a fortune doing it.

No one knows what demons people have; and wealth, fame, and seeming success don't insulate anyone.  

RIP

Very upsetting. His public persona was so upbeat and enthusiastic. He seemed to have such passion for culture, for people, for food, for life experiences. He seemed genuinely curious about the world around him. But I suppose that passion and curiosity can coexist with depression. 

Sunny, and to have one of your dearest and closest friends find you. It hurts deeply to think about. 

One of my top five things in the world to do and to plan out is, having dinner with friends in cities no one at the table is from. You know Eric and Tony had dinner plans in a glorious city.

Plus he left an 11 year old daughter behind.  Absolutely tragic on all levels.

I am just stunned. This story was literally the first thing I saw when I turned on my computer this morning. So sad.

I remember buying Kitchen Confidential when it first came out, and passing it around to all my friends, saying "You've got to read this book!", as we had all previously worked in restaurants. Every word rang true.
