Mort Walker has drawn his last Beetle Baily comic but he made it to 94, not bad.


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

Ikeas grundare Ingvar Kamprad död.


labente deinde paulatim disciplina velut desidentes primo mores sequatur animo, deinde ut magis magisque lapsi sint, tum ire coeperint praecipites, donec ad haec tempora quibus nec vitia nostra nec remedia pati possumus perventum est.

 

First our declining morals slid, bit by bit, and then our very national spirit.  Then the collapse became greater and greater, and our principles began to go, until at last, it has come to this age, in which we can bear neither our crimes nor the cure for them.

Something about Frazier, and Cheers too, that clicked so well. That chemistry right? And the acting chops.

Mahoney was always impressive-just a solid character actor. Uber talented. I always found him watchable in just about anything- his presence told you that whatever he was in was worth watching.

Funny that he was a Mancunian in real life and in Frasier Jane Leeves played a Mancunian character, but was an Essex girl. It's a funny old world.

I learned today that he was more or less discovered by John Malkovich. He started in Chicago theater, and post Frasier, basically worked steadily in Chicago theater, often taking the same pay as the other stage actors. Sounds like he may have had some of the no nonsense personality of his Marty Crane character.

Mickey Jones...a "That Guy" in Hollywood. As in, "Hey, I know that guy" ... but don't know his name

Was a drummer before actor...Who knew?

From Wiki:

After working as a freelance drummer with various acts, Jones was introduced to Trini Lopez. When Lopez's drummer became ill, he was asked to take his place and eventually became the band's new permanent drummer.

In 1959, Jones left Lopez's band to pursue a degree in Business Administration at North Texas State College (now The University of North Texas). After college, he took a job at Rohr Aircraft in San Diego. Seeing that the life of a factory worker was not for him, Jones moved to Los Angeles to get back into the entertainment industry. He landed a job as a page at the NBC studios, while re-establishing his friendship with Lopez, who had moved to L.A. as well. Jones would again become Lopez's drummer, while Lopez would see much success with hits such as "If I Had A Hammer", "La Bamba" and "America".

In 1964, Jones left Lopez's band to join Johnny Rivers ("Secret Agent Man", "Memphis" and "Mountain of Love") as his drummer. During this time, he traveled with Rivers' band, along with singer Ann-Margret, to entertain the troops in Vietnam.

In 1966, Jones was made an offer by Bob Dylan to join him as his drummer. Replacing Levon Helm, who had quit, Jones would accompany Dylan with the other members of what would become The Band, on his world tour of Australia and Europe. It was during this tour while performing at the Manchester Free Trade Hall in England on May 17, 1966, that the audience jeered Dylan for playing the electric guitar during the latter half of the show. Jones' career with Dylan would be cut short when Dylan had to temporarily stop performing in order to recover from a motorcycle accident.

At this time, Jones had decided to pursue a career in acting. He had landed jobs as an extra, when in 1967 he was approached to be the drummer for a new group called The First Edition, with lead singer Kenny Rogers.

With hits such as "Something's Burning", "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town" and "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)", The First Edition would see much success over the next ten years, even having their own TV variety show, Rollin' on the River (later shortened to Rollin'), in the early 1970s.

I guess his god had other plans. Too bad his son didn't inherit some of his humbleness and intelligence.

"Billy Graham's Christianity wasn't founded on hatred, so I'm going to condemn the most humane part of the man."

Good job, Freddie.  Thanks for reminding us you're a scumbag.

What a fucking cunt.
